Well, I'm not even sure where to start. All weekend, we thought that Jethro was improving. Today we were told that he really isn't improving and our options are 3 or 4 different surgeries, or to make him comfortable and let him die. None of the surgeries present a real solution to his heart problem, a couple of them really aren't even options, either because of the financial circumstances we find ourselves in, or because of the severity of Jethro's heart condition.
I'm mostly posting to ask for prayer. Mike and I need a tremendous amount of wisdom as we seek the Lord's face in this turbulent time.
I am an emotional wreck, and find myself looking into a glass darkly, and wondering where God is in this. I KNOW He's here, I know He's watching over us, I know He's got this all under control, however, I feel set adrift.
I seem to be healing from my surgery okay, but am not very sharp mentally at the moment, so it makes these decisions even more daunting, because I don't have the clarity of thought that I would desire.
My laptop is dead at the moment...I'm on Will's netbook right now. So, I don't know when I'll get to update again, but I will as soon as I can. If you are on Facebook, there are updates there, Will updates for me.
Please, continue to pray for God's healing touch on Jethro.
