One More Day?

December 1, 2010

 Mark wanted me to let you all know that sometimes you get your heart set on something and it just doesn’t come to pass. It is the nature of things sometimes. It has been with him. Pathology did come have a report for him today so no decision could be made regarding putting a PICC line in his arm. Tomorrow is another day and maybe Mark will come home.

Mark jokingly says that hospitals can make a person crazy and it’s just a shorter walk for him than for others. He is grateful that we were able to rent a hospital type bed for him that Kelly arranged. He feels that he will be able to sleep better at home now since he can raise or lower his head as needed. We were also able to borrow a recliner until we can purchase one of our own. A friend with a strong son and a truck delivered these items to our home this evening.

I waited all day to post until I knew more and this is it. Boring really isn’t such a bad thing though is it?

    It has been so interesting to watch from a distance all the people praying, all the new relationships being formed and God right in the center of it all. I am continuing to pray. Blessings John Atherton

      Dear Mark,
      Very glad to hear that you are recovering and
      (Hopefully ) home soon. I know there is a lot of prayer support for you. I am glad to be reading this blog from Seattle where I am visiting family I haven’t seen in 10 years.
      Blessings, Sharon von Lentz

    It has been a while since I have communicated but you have been on my mind and in my prayers for a long time. Pauly and I understand some of the waiting and decisions… is very difficult but you are someone who gets through “difficult” well.
    May the Lord encourage your HEART (excuse the pun) Today and Kristina we continue to pray strength and encouragement to you.Love IN HIM

    I have kind of jumped into this recently. Has
    Marked had surgery to repair the valve. This is
    all to familiar with Natalie’s hospital visits.
    I encourage you to hang in there, things will
    improve. God’s in control!

    Hi again, this infection reminds me of the
    infection Natalie got from the water at San Diego 4 years ago.
    Mark and a friend of his also got an infection
    around that time. I am interested in finding out the source of Marks fever when they figure it out.
    Natalie had a form of cholera. Dr.s also had a
    hard time identifying the infection.Wonder if
    it can live in bloodstream and come back.
