For I will restore health unto you, and I will heal you of your wounds, saith the Lord.
Jeremiah 30:17

It’s been a difficult couple of days waiting for word on how my mother is doing. My emotions have been all over the place. That’s partly my normal personality and, I suppose, partly the pregnancy hormones now. I know regardless of where we are, it would be the same. Answers aren’t coming any faster in one place than the other. And at least we might be bringing her some comfort and ease of mind knowing we are all safe. Not to mention that having 3 kids (even if we’re adults) coming into the hospital room wouldn’t help her get rest.

Again, please understand that I don’t wish to explain in too much detail. Not sure Mom would like to see it all here when she’s better. 🙂 She is extremely sick, but thankfully has made some improvement from yesterday. We’re all holding onto that and continuing to pray.

Tomorrow Trent & I are taking Christopher to my sister and brother-in-law’s house. The 5 of us are just going to spend some time together which I think we all need at the moment.

Thank you for the good wishes and prayers sent. All are greatly appreciated.

    Oh, my goodness, Sarah. I didn't realize your mom was actually in the hospital. I'm very glad she's getting the care she needs, and I'm sure she's in very good hands. I'll be praying for her full recovery.

    I knew you said she was sick when you went to visit her, didn't realize she was that sick. Prayers for a quick recovery.

    BTW, that photo you have posted is really good and the guy in the middle has a heart shape in his jacket. Okay, not really, but it looked that way when I first saw it.

    Many prayers sweet Sarah....remember to take care of yourself too...give yourself permission to be "in the passenger seat"..He knows what He's doing...
    I've often said that being pregnant is the sweetest total loss of control I've ever had...

    Still hoping for your mom to get well soon. And I know, easier said than done, but try not to be too stressed out. ((Hugs))

    Thanks! I really appreciate all your kind comments. It was comforting to find these this morning.

    Theresa, funny about the jacket - I'd never noticed that before. That's my "little" brother, Christopher.

    The photo from L-R is my brother-in-law, sister, mom, brother, stepfather, me and Trent.

    Your mom is in my thoughts, and you as well...take care of yourself despite your worry for her. *hugs to both of you*
