Can I Get Some Prayers And Well Wishes Please

Uggh, just when life can't get any lower and you feel like you have hit rock freaking bottom, the floor falls out and you're falling again. Anyways, can you guys and gals please say a prayer or whatever you do for my family. I have now had to call TWO ambulances in the last 24 hours or so.

Yesterday morning my little girl was running a 104 fever and was having troubles breathing, an ambulance ride across the city, to find out she has/had the flu (still not sure what kind, they said the kind didn't matter it was teh effect on her body that mattered), croup and as a result of those had a life threatening asthma attack. So I spent all night with her in the hospital yesterday morning.

Then dead tired I fall into bed last night, ready to regain myself and get back to business today....at least that's what I thought. Instead I get up, get the non sick kids off to school only to hear an awful scream from upstairs as well as a crashing noise, where I find my husband (we just got married this weekend) in a full out seizure. He has never had one before in his life, he was screaming and thrashing in pain, and so another 911 call and he is rushed to the hospital. But because I have no one to watch the children who are at home, or be here for the one who gets home from school in about an hour, I sit here wondering what the hell is going on with my husband.

SO if you warriors could please say a prayer or whatever you can it would be very much appreciated, because right now I am just a right mess and wanna just curl up and cry. It has been a VERY long month, and this new one doesn't seem to be getting any better.

Thanks in advance,
Sylvia

    Done.

    You're strong, Sylvia, have no doubt. Sometimes one has
    to take things in what ever small increment that is
    necessary. And that's ok. Do what you need to do, and
    you'll be fine. (I know these things.)

    Hi Sylvia,
    Sorry for the trouble you have had... I will remember you and your family in my daily prayers and I will shoot over a request for the inspiration network to include you and your family on their list. They have many prayer partners that get together and pray daily over the request.

    I know it seems hard and we all have been there.. Just remember in faith it is the strong that will endure.

      and I know that no words will be sufficient to ease your suffering but my
      prayers are with you.

      One day at a time.

    Thank you everyone for your prayers they are much appreciated. Josh is home now, they still don't know what caused it, thank goodness for the overrun hospitals right now, they essentially drugged him up and sent him home with a prescription for more drugs...really nice. With the understanding if it happens again to go back in to the hospital. So no understanding of why or what happened simply, here these drugs should help it not happen again, even though we don't know what or why it happened.

    Anyways thank you so much everyone. This place is always great, even in a persons time of need.

    My God, Sylvia.....Strength and Courage to you. Don't let it show, your asthmatic needs calm. You can do it. (I was the asthmatic child that would most likely not survive through high school-- we DO survive, even when scary, so chin high, girl.).

    Remember everything happens for a reason - take care of you and yours now and the reason will come to you later.

    You keep us posted - but rest when you can. We are here when you need us.

    Godspeed.

    Thank you all, it means alot to me and my family. I'm keeping my head up, we can overcome this and I am doing my best to stay calm and cool and positive because honestly I would much rather just sit down and cry but it is better to smile and know it will get better than give up. Thanks again everyone.

      These are the things that toughen us up for the bad times, and soften us up for the good.
      You don't need my prayers, you have my confidence that you will get through this and all will be well.

      Congratulations on getting married by the way.

        Well said Thom.

        Also Sylvia, there's nothing wrong with some tears. You probably will feel better afterwards.

      It's a woman's strength, Sylvia. As caretakers we don't get the luxury of crawling into a corner and screaming but just wipe the tears off and keep doing what has to be done.

      I hope your family is health again soon.

        Sylvia, I am really shocked to hear about this as I was about to ask you for advice on my own problem. It is really hard luck as the two does not appear to be connected. I hope that you are getting sufficient help and will pull through this quickly.

        Best wishes and take care

    Things always seem at their worst when you're stuck right in the middle of stress, and although it's not much consolation, things will get better. They always do. You are strong and I have a good feeling about you pulling through this.

    Best of wishes to you, and your attitude will carry you through these tough times.

    I too will have you and husband and daughter in my thoughts and prayers.

    I have personally seen the power of prayer. It works! So keep the faith.
    And it is increased in numbers. The more people who post here and pray for you the more power it will have.

    So, let's keep this thread going and growing.
