A Tough Few Days

I promise to post pictures tomorrow. After recovering from the accident, I spent a relaxing Mother's Day with the family. Woke up yesterday morning to the news that my 15 year old son's friend had taken some pain medicine for a surgery that he had on his arm, had a reaction to it and was in critical condition. His mom could not wake him for driver's ed., he was rigid and his teeth were clenched. She had to do CPR on him. I spent the day at the hospital comforting teenagers and his mom (we used to teach together). Last night they life flighted him to Salt Lake. At the time they were saying brain damage, kidney and liver damage with the possible need for transplants. As of today--they are expecting his organs to recover 100%, we are waiting for MRI test results on the brain. He was put in a coma and they have slowly been taking him out of that today. He has responded to voices and is fighting the ventilator, but they have quite a deal of concern about his white brain matter (apparently the connector matter in the brain). Any and all prayers for Kade and his family will be appreciated. We believe prayer has changed the outcome so far and we are continuing to believe for a complete healing.

Thus this has been where I have been and why junking has been put on the back burner. I hope you all don't give up on me as I enjoy sharing with you. Hug those babies (yes even those teen aged ones) a little tighter today!

  1. Becky, that is so sad about your friend's son. I am praying and believing that God will perform a miracle and give him complete healing. I have never met you in person, but that doesn't matter. We are family in Christ. I really enjoy reading your blog, but you need to take all the time you need before getting back to "junking". Your life (friends and family) are more of a priority anyway. Bless you, Becky!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate your kind words!
