A Prayer Request


Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.

  • Proverbs 16:24

My wife needs a bit of honeycomb right now, and prayers.

For the past month, she has gotten more tired and listless and washed out. When she put on the brave face at the dialysis center 18 hours ago, I made an appointment for her to see the nurse practitioner at the doctor’s office. The nurse practitioner was thinking that a lot more needed to be known. She thought we should go to the hospital, but she gave us the option of doing bloodwork and going home. I was worried that she was so weak after dialysis that I would be unable to walk her to the bed. It is a good thing we opted for the hospital.

My wife has diverticulitis, inflamed. She has a blood count half what it should be. She was running a mild temperature. And that was just for starters. Now we know why she could not stop eating ice. She developed Pica, a disorder of eating ice set on by extreme iron-deficient anemia. She may only spend one night in the hospital, but it looks like more in that the antibiotics have to do their thing and they may have to stagger blood transfusions.

Her dialysis is far behind schedule due to feeling ill, which cut two days short, and missing a third day, about half of a week’s dialysis.

Please pray for her. God is the great healer. All these conditions are recoverable, but she is weak. She needs strength.

Soli Deo Gloria.  Only to God be the Glory.

    Kitty is in my prayers along with you. As a caregiver, these incidents are almost as difficult for you. I pray that God will bring her back to the proper levels and return her energy as well as yours. I know what you’re going through. Jesus is our great physician. Love to you both!
