Life Flight update

My last Blog was from the hospital critical care unit. We almost lost our middle daughter. So many wanted an update, wrote kind words and said they were praying for her. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Stories abound. I may write about them in my spiritual blog later.

Tania is home now under strict monitoring by her personal doctor with a lot of check ups planned. She is stable (medically), has no memory of what happened and struggles emotionally as do we. Tania’s vitals, sodium levels and a host of other things are checking out good. Brain and kidney function will hopefully have no ill effect. She will always struggle with her condition of being born with Spina Bifida and 35 surgeries have taken their toll as well as kept her alive. She has a great mind in a body that doesn’t treat her very well. My wife is her care giver most of the time.

I wake up in the night and check to see if she is breathing…then I check to make sure my wife is. I guess it’s easy to mistrust the elements of life mostly taken for granted, like breathing and waking up the next morning.

Have a Merry Christmas and be thankful for even the smallest of things. Life is precious even when it’s hard. Trust God in all things and keep eternity in mind (it’s always close by) and get to know the author of Christmas

    1. Thanks so much Stephanie. Oddly enough, we have felt a lot of peace in all the turmoil. Without God’s peace I think I would pass by most feelings and go for sheer terror. I am so grateful for all these writers bloggers and so many others who do not know us really…yet pray.

    1. So true Jerry. I’m learning the “why” questions seem to put me in a place of judging God’s love, power and motives. I get on the wrong side of the fence relationally with my Lord. I believe that if you take a jar full of real genuine faith, the main ingredient is 100% genuine trust. These hard things in life can spot a cheap imitation of trust quite quickly. Wish I could say I have that % of trust.

  1. I’m not sure why I’m not getting your blog…i use to. So glad Tania is doing better. That sounds like a parent’s worse nightmare scare…
    Praying for you all. Sharron F.

    1. Thanks Alan. Certain events in life can sure magnify our trust in God’s promises as well as show us our lack of trust. We are grateful for His presence and more sure we will never be alone throughout eternity….which outweighs all the gold in world if one could choose.

  2. It’s been 37 years of hardship for her..way too many tough stories, yet God has used some of her near death experiences as well as her daily struggles mightily. For Example, She would not trade her lot in life for the C scan guy vowing to take his family to church if she didn’t die in his unit. Joel brought his wife and two kids the very next day (to our church), heard the gospel and all 4 of them prayed to receive Christ that day. They still follow Jesus…(Many more stories). God will win in this malady….now you got me going! LOL
