SPOKE TOO SOON

Still need your prayers.....After starting some new medication, Jack's blood pressure really bottomed out and they had to call the doctor and he immediately came back to the hospital. We had a scary hour or two and after some other meds he seems to be stable now. But we will be staying....and to make matters worse, there are no beds in the hospital, so he will have to stay in the cath lab all night....not a HAPPY CAMPER would put it mildly. So what looked like a day with no problems, things have changed a little....Just wanted to keep you updated....and praying. It is beginning to rain here and they are saying snow.

I'm so sorry for this bump in the road. At least they caught it before sending you home!I will continue to pray for Jack and your family!

I haven't had a chance lately to read much of anything anyone else has written, but I happened to read yours tonight.

Lots of prayers headed your way for an uneventful night (well, as uneventful as a night can be in the cath lab - yikes!) and for Grayson's test results!

Oh no! Ok, prayers are continuing!!! It's terrible that there are no beds available...it's the same thing over here, many patients have to spend the night in the hallways even. Thinking of both of you. xoxo

Sorry to hear of your medical issues. Terrible when there are no beds available, that happened to my mom a couple of years ago and she spent the night on a bed in the hall just outside the emergency room. Would have probably been better off going home instead for all the rest she got.

Hope Jack is feeling better soon.

Storming the heavens for both of you.
Keep us posted.

What a scare for you and Jack. I sure don't blame him for not bein' a happy camper in the cath lab. I sure hope they bump the heat up for him in there. Burrrrrr!

I will be praying for Jack to remain stable and this takes care of his problem. Anything on little Grayson yet??? Just know my prayers are with you dear.

God bless and try to get some rest tonight...like that's gonna happen.

Oh hospitals and Doctors and proceedures are all such unfriendly issues to deal with. Thinking of both of you and the rest of your family, all of you in my prayers today.

Sharon said...

Sorry to hear of your complications today; they will have it resolved soon. May be best to stay in the Cath Lab; at least you'll havve the place to yourselves. Hang in there; still praying here. God is good all the time.

Teresa,

Honestly I love your quick updates because it tells me just what I need to pray for specifically for you.

Here is hoping for either a bed to open for Jack to have a room available while he waits to recover or they see such improvements they release you home before the roads get too bad.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Praying for y'all.

I was just getting ready to celebrate the good news.

I'm hoping that the medication does stabilize Jack.

My heart goes out to him having to be in the cath lab all night. That's unbelievable that there is no room. Maybe someone will be discharged soon so he can have their bed. I'll be praying that that happens.

Oh, I'm so glad I stopped by so I can say a prayer for you right now.

Lord, please give Teresa a special measure of your peace that passes understanding, even in the midst of scary and uncomfortable circumstances. You are sovereign, Lord, over all circumstances. Do your thing, God!

Blessings to you,
Lisa
