Chief, rest in knowing that every person who is following your wife's progress is sending prayers to God and He is hearing them. The prayers continue and will do so until you tell us about the day you bring her home. You have the love and prayers of not only friends here at DC, but your family also.

We can't be there physically, but be rest assured our hearts are with you during this trying time.

Caring thoughts and healing vibes still be sent in you and your DW's direction. (I checked on a map.)

I'm praying for both of you! Hang in there friend, and keep us posted ok?
Somehow my post ended up where it shouldn't be. I am sorry and I am holding you close in my prayers. I am so sorry my post ended up badly.

I was out of town with almost no internet service, so I am totally out of what is going on. I hope things are better.

Her fever is gone tonight, and her white blood cell count is good. Her kidneys are working, and she's getting stronger every day. Her breathing was easier today as well. They moved her to a chair for a little while, and started therapy, testing her limb strength, and ability to move. She can't stand yet, but the therapists stated that it was pretty normal, as she was flat on her back for two weeks.

Again, thank you for your caring support, everybody, and I mean that.

Seeeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

Aw, Chief, glad to hear she's getting better. This report is the best one yet. Before you know it, she'll be home giving orders to you...and you'll love every moment of it!

She wasn't taken down until 11:30 p.m. I then went to the store as visiting hours were long over, and she will sleep the remainder of the night. I stayed with her from 9 a.m. this morning until 11:30 p.m. and was a bit tired, and hungry. Picked up a can of chili that a store clerk said was pretty good. It was terrible, had cloves in it and meat that was the size and texture of sawdust grains. But it filled the belly, and I've taken my meds and am heading for bed.

I hope all of you had a better day than I did. Keep the prayers coming, they really help. And thanks for the support.

Seeeeeeya; One Tired Chief Shortwind of the North, for tonight at least.
Gosh, I'm sorry...I pray she'll be better soon.

I'm sorry I got here too late, but praying for her and you. God bless you both.

A prayer as I pray:

Father in Heaven, I come to You tonight to ask for healing for my friend's wife. Please be with her husband as he walks through this storm with her. Please bless and heal her, Father, and please guide the hands and the minds of all the doctors attending to her. Please, Father, give her the strength to recuperate and be with her precious husband. Please put Your hand upon her and be with her as she makes her journey back to us; give her strength and healing, and please be with her every moment.
In Jesus' name, I pray.
Amen
