No Rest for the Wicked

This is Marla’s middle, and might I say most loyal daughter ,Bel, blogging for her tonight. For the last two days she was admitted to Mercy Hospital for a bowel obstruction. They also found 2 lesions on her liver. Because of all the pain medication she is unable to blog now, let alone keep her eyes open. A decision on surgery will be made in the next few days. Knowing that this wasn’t life threatening was a comfort. I just knew I would be able to go in her room like a breeze and with a smile on my face, bring a little comfort…I was wrong. To see my mom who is so strong in spirit and quick to take care of everyone and everything, now knocked off her feet, left me speechless. Her eyes were constantly rolling back into her head trying to carry conversation, as she kept repeating how horrible her head and throat hurt. As my Dad, Miranda and I were in the room with her, we kept looking at each other trying to hide the tears from her, that kept watering up inside of us. We know this won’t keep her down but there’s nothing anyone can do take her pain away. Until then keep her in your prayers, and for anyone who doesn‘t pray much, ask God to show his power and heal her body, that he would bring comfort and rest to her….actually, scratch that thought…it sounds like a prayer you’d send someone to the grave with. So in your own words, from your heart, talk to God on her behalf- for his healing hand  over her entire body and that you might soon enjoy her devious and yet very entertaining thoughts and feelings on life that we so crave to read.


P.S. If your wondering why the title doesn’t match my words it because I had no thoughts so decided to ask my overly sedated mother…hence her view point and mine not :)

I will pray for her. But she could also get a blessing from the Elders of the church. She's a strong person, but prayer always helps. :)

Prayers being sent!!!!!

I had a bowel obstruction last October so I know how painful it is and annoying to be in the hospital.

I hope that you don't need surgery, that nurses treat you well, that you get out of the hospital quickly and that you recover even faster!!!!

((((HUGS GIRLIE!!!)))

Oh my goodness! Will pray and please keep us updated

Oh gosh. I'm the biggest baby in the world when it comes to pain. So I can only imagine.

Tell Marla, when she's coherent, that we are all praying and pulling for her. We will miss her wit and sense of humor. She needs to hurry back.

Kfred said...

Please, Please!, send my best regards forward to your Mom and let her know I am thinking of her and sending positive thoughts her way.

Though I don't know her personally, I absolutely love her wit and outlook on life. I also have a selfish self-interest in her well being as she represents a full 50% of my readership. My sponsor is going to be a bit miffed if traffic dwindles down only to my mother!

Get well soon.

Glen said...

Thanks for the heads up about your Mum Bel.

Marla - get some rest, get better and relax back knowing that you have done a good job on those kids of yours (well at least one anyway - the rest might be rubbish! :-)

Prudence said...

oh my goodness, praying for Marla, that she will be healed quickly!

Oklahoma Granny said...

ModernMom said...
