Update On My Patients :)

Today has been frustrating. A different doctor came in today and scared Keith saying he's concerned about his stomach but wouldn't give him any specifics. Keith's fever was up again last night and he is asking for Brian. Hopefully, Brian will return to the hospital to be with Keith in another day or two.

Bryce has been dizzy all day and doesn't want any noise. More bruises are appearing on his body and he is just miserable.

Brian has a difficult time getting up and down and it has been a little more difficult to breathe today. When Keith called him saying, "Dad, this doctor is scaring me..," Brian became very upset. He wishes he was at the hospital now.

In the middle of all this, I am cooking spaghetti for Blake's birthday. His grandma and grandpa and my family will be here soon and we will have a quiet dinner to celebrate Blake turning 12.


  1. Hang in there, Jana. Take care of yourself as well as the others. Remember the most comforting Bible verse you know. Pray, pray, pray. And yes, you DO need that bubble bath! God will hold the world together for those ten minutes. You are all in my prayers. Love, Helen

    Happy Birthday to Balke.

  2. Sorry for all the things you are going through. We are praying for you during this time.

  3. Sis. Allard, Keith is continually in my prayers. I understand how he can be upset with the doctor. I know first hand that sometimes they can say or do things that will scare you and upset you (like prescribe the wrong medication). I have sent up prayers that God enter into the room with him this very moment and bring him peace and comfort. That what ever the situation may be, God steps in and intervenes and everything will be alright for Keith in Jesus Name.

    As for Pastor and Bryce I pray for God's healing touch for them as well. I know pastor and I know this is weighing heavy on his mind. So I am praying for peace of mind for pastor where Keith is concerned as well.

    I know that this has not been easy for you either so I am also praying for you that God continues to give you the strength that you need to take care of your patients, Bryn, Blake, and your mom too.

    Blake, You have a Happy Birhtday OK? Love you all, Sis Jolene

  4. Jana,
    Keep being strong....We are praying for you guys!

    Thanks for the updates! (Please let Keith know that
    Faith Mtn- Lakeside- is praying for him!)

  5. Sis, Jana, I have been praying. I'm so sorry that this happened. I can't imagine what you are going through and feeling.
    Keep holding onto the nail-scarred Hand.
    Just curious: does Keith call Brian, "Dad"? :-)
    Keep us up on everyone's progress.
    Love you lots.

  6. Thank you, my dear friends, for your prayers, thoughts, and concern. Your support has given me strength.

    Tena - Keith does call Brian "Dad" and even calls me "Mom." Of course, we are not his mother and father, but he is like a son to us.
