Feels Like It Never Ends…

I’m in the hospital.


You read that right. Here’s the short version:

Spent two days in bed.
High fever. Aches.
My arm began to get red rash all over it.
This happened last year, so I knew what was happening.
Saw doctor.
Put on oral antibiotics which I couldn’t keep down.
Am in hospital.

I have a skin infection in my right arm that can’t clear up on it’s own because there is no lymphatic system to fight the infection. I am running a fever, taking IV antibiotics, and surviving on lots of nice pain meds. I was admitted yesterday and should be here for at least three days.

So that’s where I’ve been.

How I’ve been, you ask?

Discouraged is an understatement. Am breathing deep and begging for God glimpses each moment. My dear friend, Sarah once told me, “We believe His plans are perfect, but it’s okay not to understand.” I am believing… clinging to truth. I have nothing else to cling to.

I’ll update more once I know more… and once the dilauded doesn’t make my brain so fuzzy… at least I assume that’s the delaudid.

We are all so tired. So very tired of life in general right now…

And poor Brian didn’t get his Irish stew last night.

  1. Ugh. So sorry. I am thinking of you. Stay strong. And there will be irish stew for another day.


  2. So sorry you’re in the hospital. Praying for a quick recovery!


  3. Oh why, oh why?! But believing, too. Because there is nothing else to cling to…and nothing else worth clinging to. Praying for you.


  4. Oh Angie,

    So sorry. Praying for recovery and some rest (as in, rest from one thing after another- a season of peace and health for you and your family. Of course I want you to have rest in the Lord too, but actual physical rest and relative well-being would be awesome). Love you guys,

    Oh Angie….

    All I can say is just…. we understand the tired…we grieve with you…but NOT as those who have no hope…either in LIFE, or later in death. For our God is WITH us NOW…giving us ABUNDANT life, even when it all feels terribly wrong. Hold on….for a long time when I was sick and constantly finding myself in the hospital, each time Greg would be so devastated, and I would feel like I was disappointing him, I just hated all that SO much. They we talked and we decided that we were going to assume our “Normal” life was going to mean now and then I was going to be in the hospital. And we would be happy if we went a long time without. That helped some. Then Greg got so sick….now we have no idea what normal is or if/when we will find it again. But —-The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases. His mercies never come to an end. They are New every morning. Great is His faithfulness to us.
    I am looking fwd to seeing you smile and hearing your laugh. You are a persevering saint as is Brian…Greg and I love you all and pray for you. And….

    We understand the tired. It is OK for you to feel that way. Love to you all. Carol

    mmm. . . dilaudid. . . . glad they’re hooking you up, honey.

    This stinks, darling Angie. Praying for you. Tears falling for you. Wish I could be there with you.



  7. I can’t tell you how my heart sank for you and your family when I read this. Your strength and faith will get you through – even if it doesn’t feel like it. (And dilaudid will help for a while!)


  8. 😦

    Maybe it was the dilaudid that made you laugh this morning at my “fixing the dryer” story. 🙂

    I sure do hope you feel better soon, for the long haul! And what your friend said about believing the plan is perfect, but not understanding? That is one of those sort of profound things that will probably not leave my little brain, not ever.

    Wish I could take on some of your burden, but I hope you know I’m thinking of you and praying, always!!!


  9. You are in my prayers today……I know you are tired and disappointed. That is understandable!


  10. So sorry you’re sick, Angie. As if you haven’t been through enough, already. Keep trusting in Him, and we’ll be praying that this awful infection clears up soon. {{HUG}}
