UPDATE on 3 Men and Shirley Mae.....need more prayers
Ittybittygma Send a Message
Sorry late getting back to you all but thank you for the encouragement and prayers. Life is still hectic in my world.

I need to update my prayer request for the 3 men.

Vic, the one I helped for a week, is safely living with his DGD in SC. I kept keys for 2 days to make sure everyone who bought something at estate sale, could get their stuff out. Then I turned the keys in to the office.

I cleaned up some of the apt but not all. Office was surprisingly kind about all of it and appreciated all I had done for him.

Vic called and sounded so happy in his new home. There is a 5 yo DG-GDTR in school all day and a weiner dog, named Little Bear, to keep him company at home. He is looking forward to fishing and spending time with his family. His son doesn't live far away from them. I think he will be fine. He slept on our couch a few nights and was becoming so dependent on me so glad to see DGDTR show up and drive him to his new home.

Kelvin, the neighbor with the cat I am feeding and caring for, is still in rehab. Been gone over 3 wks now. Supposed to come home 3 diff times but not home yet and may not be able to return. Poor lonely kitty but doing ok. I am slowly trying to clean up his apt when I get a chance.

My husband, Rod, is not doing well at all. Went back to urgent care again yesterday. Now he is so constipated, absolutely miserable. They gave him some magnesium citrate and suggested a fleet enema if that doesn't work. Helping some but he is miserable and so tired. We both were up half the night again. Cant remember a night lately when I actually got much sleep for more than a few hrs at a time. Nap when I get a chance.

He has dr apptmt fri for followup. Xrays didn't show a blockage so not sure what is going on. Trying to get him in for a colonoscopy soon. Has apptmt at VA feb 21 but dr hoped to get him in here sooner if possible. He really does need prayers right now.

Gotta scoot. Thank you all so much for your kind words and encouragement and especially for your prayers. I know your all busy too and it touches my heart to think you would take time to let me know you care. You will never know how much it means to me or gives me strength to keep going, knowing God and you are out there for me.

God bless you and your family today and always. Prayers for your families, too. Know many of you are caregivers for others as well. WE do it out of love and that and the grace of God keep us going for our family. Please continue prayers for my family at this time.

ps ....Our son is deployed right now too and that is really weighing on Rod's mind. We do talk to him weekly tho and that helps some. Please keep all military in prayers too. Thank you.

Hugs and love across the miles. Shirley Mae

Shirley Mae, Prayers that doctors find out what is ailing Rod. It's really rough when they keep telling us that they can't find the problem. Glad to hear that one of the guys has found a permanent home with family. Poor little kitty, I hope and pray his master makes it home to be with him. You are a very special friend to all that meet you.

Take care of yourself too. Maybe a nice warm bath at night will help you sleep a little better. Try to stay warm and please don't over do it.
