Prayers for our family

Things are going a bit rough right now and I could really use your prayers.

I have an auto immune disease and got the flu a few weeks ago. It was the sickest I've ever been. I thought I was doing fine and getting better. A few days ago I started getting red spots all over my body. Long story short I met with doctors today and they think my body is fighting against itself and breaking down alot of things causing some bad infections. They also think that I might have Lupus. We have suspected this over the years, but they said today that this is the worst case of symptoms they have ever seen. I'm doing okay for the most part. I'm just incredibly tired and really really sad. The hardest thing is that my husband isn't living with us right now. He is down in Southern california trying to find us a new house. He doesn't even know what is going on yet.

I did get a call from my mom earlier to let me know that they are putting a bid in on a house. Long story short, my husband lost his job last month. We decided to move down to Southern Ca to be with my family. He has found a new job, but we need a new house. In 10 days we have to be out of this house and make the 700 mile drive with our kids and pets to a new life. My parents are being fabulous and helping out more then I could ever imagine. They are putting up money to help us get low monthly payments on our loan and they are also letting us and our pets live with them till we move into our new house.

So Please from the bottom of my stressed out heart be praying that the people will accept our offer and that I will be okay for the next few days so that I can help get us moved. As it is now I'm supposed to be driving one of our trucks pulling a trailer next week and I need strength to do that for 13 hours straight. Then I can lapse into a coma for a few days to recover.

Rusty, I am sorry to hear of your condition. I have a close friend who has Lupus. I know that it is a tricky illness that can strike at anytime. One day you feel fine and the next day you feel like you been hit by a truck. I will pray for you and your family. I pray that everything runs smooth and according to plan. I pray that God will give you the strength to carry on.

Russty!! I'm SO sorry I will definitely be praying for you! I know that God will help you through this if you trust Him! I hope B can get home soon because I know that helps you when he's around, and that you'll be able to move and be near your family and have their comfort too! God Bless!

Thank you all. Your warms thoughts brought tears to my eyes. Your support means the world to me through all of this. I have felt so much love coming from all over the world it helps me get through the hard moments.

I finally got ahold of B and he instructed me that I am not to worry about anything else. Its easier said then done. But at least I know I'm not contagious so I can't make anyone else sick. He is trying to get home so hard, but I will probably still have to hang on till at least Saturday. I'm hoping that as soon as they sign all the paper work we will be able to get him on a flight home. Then I have to make the fun two hour drive to the airport, but it will be worth it to see him after all this time. Its been the longest 4 weeks of my life.

Russty, I'm so sorry to hear this is happening to you. Take strength in the love around you, and when it all feels too much, just remember that you are not alone, and you have huge family all around the world. Things WILL get better, I heartily believe in that. Stay positive, stay strong, and when you feel weak, stretch out your hand and someone will always be there.

I echo what everyone else has said already, because they've voiced it better than I can at the moment.

You and your family are in my prayers. Love ya!

Russty Cat... You're in my prayers... Everyone else has found the right words to describe what I'm feeling at the moment (not to copy you, Thora ).

I wish you and your family a lot of strength, and I hope you can put your mind to rest and everything will work out right. That's hard to think of right now, I can imagine... But try to keep holding on, and keep the faith

Take good care of yourself...
