One of our long time family friends was in a car accident a couple of days ago and is now in the ICU in induced coma. I posted about this on the other site, but I figured I should post here too, because this is pretty intense for all of those around her. It was head trauma, but not like my mom. She had some of the same kind of injury (all head trauma patients do) but her main problem seems to be revolving around bleeding and swelling in the brain. Still, its just like with all these things, there will be no way of telling until she begins to wake up, and she won't do that until she's off the coma drugs.

We just got back from visiting her, and I have to say, in some ways its surreal and its awful, but...in another way I just know for an absolute fact that the entire thing is in God's hands. It didn't bother me to see her so swollen and hooked up to so many monitors and on life support, because I feel the presence of God more strongly in that situation and He is good.

But the deep prayer of my heart is that God would use this to radically transform her life into something amazing and beautiful. I know the God that I serve, and I know that His arm is not too short to use this to make her life even better than it was before. I believe him for that, and I pray so hard that God would use this injury to bring deeper healing.

So please be praying especially for my mom because she's been taking it really hard that she can't go up to where she is, and she's blaming herself for not being at that point in her progress yet. She's just had it really tough, because she would be the one sleeping in the ICU with her and never leaving her side. She'd be there for the family and everything, and she can't do any of that.

Praying, LS and Adira.

If I can sound selfish, pray for me at my work. There are some issues that are coming to a head (nothing to do with me) and tensions are high. Thanks.

I went to the Chiropractor today and she took some x-rays and did a lot of poking around... in the end she discovered that the reason I've been having problems breathing is because the right side of my rib cage has shifted inward. She had to do a lot of adjusting and still couldn't get it as close to normal as it needs to be. If you could just pray that she can figure out what to do, and that the pain would at least be lessened that would help a lot.

I need prayer so bad right now. Everything about my life is so up in the air right now. It's crazy and i'm so lost feeling that i don't know what exactly to do. It's so "easy" to let it all weigh so heavily on the mind.

Still on the job hunt. Got back word today from the most promising one that it's still a waiting game...

I will be homeless by the end of this month if I don't find a place to stay. And I need a job too, as I lost the one I had before.

This is all making a bad impression of me as a future husband I guess.

I just kinda need a lot of prayer.

*sighs*

A sigh is pretty much the only emotion I can muster up right now. I feel like I'm running my whole life on autopilot because its the only way I can function and do all these things I need to do. I have no passion. I have no inspiration for anything. All I seem to have is living the next day, folding the next piece of laundry, saying the next thing that has to be said for my family and others, doing the next thing that must be done. And I feel very alone and very detached, and then every once in awhile I get scared that I'll never regain feeling, and that I'll lose myself to this. I'm trying to attach, trying to feel, but I just don't and I wonder if its better this way for now.

I don't know who to talk to about anything or where I can go to be really safe. I'm not engaging with my life and with people around me. I know that just because I don't feel these love feelings, doesn't mean I'm not running off the power of love, but then I don't know how to tell if I am. If actions are the only indicator I'm probably okay. It seems like the outward things are all fine, but I worry that the inward person is a muddled mess of so many things meshing together that they become nothing at all.

Father, i lift up my dear friend to you. She is going through so much, and it always seems like there's something more. Please give her the strength to get through this. And bless me and others, so that we may be the type of good friends she needs. Please be all over this whole scenario, Father. Amen.

Pray... that I can figure out what I'm meant to do with my life...

... And if I'm making a wise decision in some aspects of said life...

Also, that I can find a balance between online and offline that is healthy...

I'm still on the job hunt. Thankfully, the bookstore is giving me almost 40 hours a week, so I have a steady income, it's just not what I'm meant to be doing the rest of my life.

I need patience.



On a positive note, the last month or so, I was up and down emotionally, spiritually, mentally, but over the last 6 days or so, I've leveled out into a very good place. Hence, I am "back" again.

Glad to have you back Chandrew *hug* That market is tough, but I hope you find something very soon! What was your major?



Please pray for a lady in my Bible Study. Under 30 and diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Granted I find it ironic that recently health providers (probably due to insurance companies) have told women to postpone regular mammograms until 40+. Bad idea. Everyone, get your stuff checked once a year, it could be life or death *ends rant*


Also, pixie dust is having a growth scan tomorrow afternoon. Its getting close to crunch time, and I'm trying my best not to be nervous. I just hope she's still growing, even if its slower than they particularly want.

heh. I also forgot to add that the government decided that one (possibly more but I haven't been notified yet) of my ultrasounds in April wasn't needed because my baby doesn't have a problem and had a normal ultrasound.

I dont know where they got that information. I haven't technically had a normal ultrasound since March (when I went to the specialist). The rest have been ordered by him for me to have a fluid check at LEAST once a week. Anyway, they sent a form where my doctor can contest the decision with my consent, So hopefully that will go through, and I wont get anymore of these ridiculous letters that someone (without a medical degree I might add) decided that my high risk pregnancy isn't as high risk as multiple doctors and a specialist have deemed it.

Please pray that it all gets sorted out. We really can't afford to have to go back and pay for all of these.

Just got back from the doctor. Pixie dust's weight is exactly where it should be (4lbs, YAY!)


However: fluid levels were at 6.34 (lowest they've ever been). I received round 1 of the steroid shot to boost lung development, and I have to go back tomorrow at the same time for round two and another fluid check. If fluids are not better, we have to go back to Macon to see the specialist.

Please pray. Its possible that if this doesn't get better in the next day or two that we'll have a baby very very soon. As in the next week or sooner. I know that technology is out there to help her, and God is totally in control. And if we need to do that, I will, but I'm praying fervently (asking you to do so as well) that she can stay in the oven a bit longer!

Lord, I pray you would comfort Adira and help things to be balanced like they should be for Pixie.

alo. i am, unfortunately, coming to a very dangerous place. it might be an end, or new beginning. either way, very few are particularly supportive. please pray that God will work here.

secondly, i might add that a problem that had seemingly gone away is back, but in a different way. my health is regressing, and so far i have untreated gastritis. im hoping it won't worsen, but since that depends on me and my highly erratic self, there is only a slim chance.

*is having a baby in the morning*

C-section, but I'm totally excited. Obviously nervous, but god has totally given me a peace about this. But of course keep us in your prayers. 8:30 EST we'll be going in to have our little pixie!

Dear Adira, I know you will be a wonderful mother. It simply has grown in you, as I have been around you. I believe God will bless you greatly. I'm praying that through struggle and strife, your love for Him and caring for other people will never die.

Love,
