T minus 3

Changed the 4 to a 3. Ran downstairs to get homade chicken soup for Scott that Karen made, ended up gabbing and missed the doctors. It does not sound like they have any new news. Just focused on the Weekend being Scott's upturn. He is much much more tired today than yesterday. Last night was another crap night for sleep..the nurses were in every 20 minutes to an hour. We had a bad lab, it showed his magnesium levels being sky high, so they did an ekg and redrew blood  - that was about 2am. No way to get back to sleep until the labs came back normal. They think he got a blood draw while he was getting IV magnesium so it read high. I was freaking out because high magnesium causes cardiac issues.

So Scott is just sleeping now. He still has a fever. Still on oxygen. Still can't hear me unless I yell. Still has rash. Still coughing up blood. I think it  will just be a long blah day. He did try to eat some cereal, just has no appetite. Hoping for an uneventful day of rest for him, so we are another day closer to things turning around.

Thank you all for continuing to pray for him. I miss his sense of humor. I'll know he is on the mend when he starts joking around again.

  3. Thinking of you and sending prayers your way. Just a few more days until he starts feeling a little better...hold on. Better days are ahead.
    Hugs, love, and prayers.

  4. I'm saying prayers for you two and hoping that the next 3 days pass quickly. Love and hugs,

  5. I just saw a penny -- first I have seen in such a long time! Immediately thought of you both. You know the story right?

    Pray for a sign.

    In God We Trust.

    Love ya!

  6. I hope his turn around comes soon! We are praying for it! Steve and Carol

  7. Keep fighting Scott! You are in our thoughts and prayers.

  8. Betty & Scott,
    You are both in all of our hearts and prayers! God bless both of you & your strength! If strength and prayers are the answer-you'll be safe in your long journey!

  9. Scott and Betty,

    Think and pray for you everyday, many times a day. Tonight it just came to me as I am listening to the radio, if you have never heard of K-Love radio it is the most positive and encouraging Christian music. It is played all across the US. Green Bay however, doesn't have a station that plays it. K-Love might just be the heavenly song and strength you need to get you through the next few days. Chicago transmits it on 94.3 or if you can't get a music station in the room, you can listen live on

    God Bless,
    Tonia and Mark Froling
