I don't even know what to title this....

Now Suzie and JR have two kids in two different hospitals a hundred miles apart.   Yes that's right.  After Cruz's scan this afternoon, he was immediately admitted to Bronson Hospital.  His diagnosis is an inflamed lymph node that's pressing on his main artery in his neck.  The tests show that he has a pocket of puss.  He will be on antibiotics all night with nothing to eat or drink after midnight and possible surgery in the morning.  Oh my, this was a very difficult phone call for me to make to Suzie.

So......Suzie went in to see Lindsay again and is now on her way back to Kalamazoo to be with her sick son.  JR remained in Ann Arbor with Lindsay.  Don, Sue, Bill and me are with Cruz and I assured Suzie that one of us would be with him at all times, but respect her decision to come home.

I ask you all....what would you do?

Lord, haven't they had enough?

Thank you to Steve Murray who was the designated driver today ('cause ya know Bill still can't drive)  with the Dr. visit and then to the hospital for tests and stayed through admission.  What on earth would we do without our extended family?

Keep the thoughts and prayers coming.

Heart Hugs,

I don't know what to say to help except, I have always heard the Lord won't give you more than you can handle. And EVERYTHING happens for a reason. I am sure that is not much of a comfort at this point but hang in there!
Please let us know if there is anything we can do other than PRAY!!! Your entire family is on the prayer list at our church and I will ask all our friends and family to keep the prayers coming.
