Today isn't going to be very long and a little different, I am coming to you to ask for specific prayers for our family today.
Friday was the last day we had to try to work on finding a rehab facility for my little brother to be released to. It's a long story, but the hospital said he has to be discharged Monday Feb 10th and we are having issues finding him a place to go. We are denied everywhere due to insurance, age or his progress not being enough. It's ridiculous, this is a life we are talking about, a 16 year old boy who deserves the BEST care and a chance to get better.
My mom called me Friday at work, our dad who stays every single night with Christian in the hospital had a heart attack early Friday morning and now he was admitted to the hospital as well. So we have Christian on one floor, and now our dad 3 floors below. Our dad is doing great, he is actually a very healthy man thank God, so he was back to his ornery self the next day. He did have to have 2 stents put in and stay in the hospital a few nights to be monitored. He is doing good but now but he is on restrictions, meaning my mom is really going to be on her own for a while. They say when it rains, it pours right?
So, our Friday was spent trying to be back and forth between both rooms and on the phones ALL day trying to get somewhere lined up. Not going to lie, it was the day from hell. Yes, the hospital has a case worker who is supposed to be helping us, but that is a WHOLE other story.
Monday is here, we have no idea what is going to happen today. My family is supposed to leave today, with nowhere to go. As crazy, unfair and unimaginable as it seems, it's true.
Have you ever been in a place where the ONLY thing you can do is have faith, 100% put every ounce of everything into God? This is where we are at, and I am not saying that is a bad thing. Our God is huge and mighty, so it's comforting really. He is in charge, he will provide. He isn't going to bring us here and abandon us. It's just one more hurdle we have to jump over. We are believing we will get a phone call today from one of the many places we've called or someone who saw the most recent news story.
So, today I just ask that you pray specifically for God to open the doors and lead my family exactly where he wants them to be. Please pray for my parents too, for my dad to continue to heal as well as he has been and strength for my mom to get through the next several days.
Kristal sent this to me, and man is it true- "You can trust God when everything else says PANIC."
No panic here, just faith. Thanks for your prayers! I will update this week and you can follow here on the FB page, we update daily.
*This post is from February, Christian is doing better today, but we still need lots of prayers for his continued healing. Thank you!
