Woah! This was NOT a good day

Hi friends,

Please don't stop praying for Nathan.  Today, he seemed more alert -- yet somewhat obsessive in certain thoughts.  For instance, this morning he called me 7 times... beginning at 5:45am, to find out when I was coming!  He was obsessive about getting out of the hospital.  Finally, Marion Joy came to transport him.  When he got there, he lasted about a half hour, before he was out of control again, and was taken to Central DuPage Hospital Emergency Room.  The E.R. doctor there, wanted him transported back to Edward, but they are saying they don't have a room.  So, it seems we are stuck!  It is obvious that Nate was not ready for rehabilitation, and the fact that he is uninsured complicates things. 

Nothing is too big for our God, and He is in control!!

James 5:10-11
Brothers, as an example of patience in the face of suffering, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. As you know, we consider blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of Job's perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy.

Lord, we need your mercy now.

Please pray for Nate's complete recovery, and for wisdom and discernment for his hospitalization.

Pray for peace in the storm.

Much love to all of you -- as you stand in the gap for us!



  1. I am praying Jewel, as we see the Lord literally hold Nathan in his hands. Your family is strong because of Him, and he sees you.

    I love you family.

  2. Oh, Jules, praying like crazy. Nothing I'd too big for God. Don't forget that.

  3. Julie - I was at Edward Hosp. today and thought I'd check in - not realizing Nathan was released. Then got the update. You continue to be in our prayers. Each night during advent, our kids are quick to start us off with prayers for Nathan. Love ya.

  4. Julie, my prayers are in high gear for your son. I pray that God's hand would override any worldly influence in his healing, and that the Lord's mercy and grace would be on everyone's heart during this time. Praise God, too, for YOUR faithfulness, and be reminded of James 1:2-4! Hang in there! My prayer continue to pour out :)
