Choose Life

H1, H2, & Big Boy Life on the (L)edge

Begun in the aftermath of Katrina, this blog was a way to keep family and friends updated as the family struggled to return to a semblance of normalcy. Now, more than four years later, the memories are still strong, the family is, to some extent, scattered. However, life did go on, and this is our story.

H2 Round 2

OK prayer warriors, we need more prayers. Starting Christmas night H2 started going downhill. The pain in his back began to worsen until he could no longer get out of bed and couldn’t even roll over without help. He is back in the hospital as of yesterday. He’ll be there for 3 or 4 days, at least. The doctor said his wound has an infection which they are treating with antibiotic IVs. He’s getting Demerol for pain management, and what an effect that has on him. When he first gets it, he become quite the “Chatty Kathy”, although what he says has little, if anything, to do with what’s going on around him. That Demerol must be some pretty good stuff!

H1/DIL1 were going back to Houston December 26th, but have extended their stay to be with H2. They are like Los Tres Amigos, truly. DIL1 spent the night at the hospital, and H1 is on his way to take over and send her home for some rest.

As for H2, the doctors don’t think the infection is so deep that they’ll have to go back in surgically to treat it. We’re praying that they are right, and that the antibiotics will do the trick. He has been so miserable since the operation, I really feel bad. I bounced back so quickly after my surgery that I encouraged him and filled him with expectations that didn’t materialize.

So, please pray for a speedy recovery for H2, and also for several of my friends who are also recovering from surgery or receiving treatments for other illnesses. Please pray that 2007 will be a year of peace, good health, and happiness for all.
