on my knees

Woke up to an early morning phone call. My stepmom. She shared my dads oxygen levels had gotten below 90 and he was disoriented & that he didn't even know who she was. He was asking where his wife was. She was rushing him to Mayo.

He got to the hospital disoriented, dehydrated and unable to stand on his own. They did some tests. Chest xray. Brain scan. Urinalysis. They admitted him into the hospital and later learned he has pneumonia. This is NOT good in his already sickened state. We knew it was time that we go so, my brother and I will be flying out tomorrow instead of later this week.

This has proven to be a VERY hard day. After getting all the arrangements made. Bags packed. We prayed and we prayed and we prayed some more. My DH looked at me and said that I am right where the Lord wants me to be and HE would not give me this assignment only to leave me alone but that HE would be with me EVERY STEP OF THE WAY This I know is so true and we shared the same with the kids, who are both very upset to have both of their parents getting on a plane tomorrow. Our precious daughter is going to stay here with her brother and sister and of course Rylee will be here as well and what good medicine she will be for both of them!

I am asking for traveling mercies for both my DH and I & my brother, but more importantly for my sweet Daddy. The Lord knows what EXACTLY what he needs.

I will update you most likely on Tuesday as I get into Jacksonville late Monday night.

I love you all dearly
