Ryan’s Miracle Watch 10/8/19

I thought I’d get this in before PG&E turns off the power and all heck breaks loose. It’s supposed to be turned off at our house around midnight tonight and until Thursday afternoon. It’s a good thing we’ve got a working back-up generator; which I just turned on for the first time in a couple of years. Whew! For those of you who’ll be affected, I hope you’ve prepared adequately…and that you purchased plenty of stock in generator companies…

Janine and I will be on vacation beginning this Thursday and back on October 23. We’ll be in China, and I’m not bringing my computer, so y’all will get a much needed break from my psycho-babble for a couple of weeks. While I do look forward to getting away, it’s going to be difficult not seeing Ryan every day. I know I’m not supposed to worry about him (or anything for that matter), but I won’t be able to help it…I’m not that strong…

Leave it to the nursing agency to wait until the 13th hour to come through with a nurse to cover my shifts while we’re away. I had given them 3-4 months advance notice, but they didn’t come up with anyone until this past Monday. Again, whew!! So, Ryan’s got round-the-clock coverage with his grandparents keeping a close eye on things. Praise God!!

Will you please pray extra hard for Ryan while we’re gone? Thank you!!

Have a wonderful couple of weeks on and with purpose!!

You know you’re ugly when you walk into a haunted house and come out with an application…That’s what I get for not getting enough sleep…and for not shaving for a few days…

Speaking of shaves: Ryan’s nurses keep him looking sharp by shaving him a few times a week. That kid is so pampered…and handsome…

Speaking of handsome:

Yesterday’s extra dose of medicine worked, because Ryan had a much better day today. Please pray for continued nonsicknesseuforium (yes, it’s a word). Tomorrow’s a new day…that’s if the Lord wills another day…If not, we’ll see y’all in heaven…

Ryan’s Miracle Watch 10/5/19

Got a bit warm today (a dramatic departure from the Fall temps we’ve been experiencing), and it’s supposed to stay warm for the next few days. Some would think since I’m talking about the weather, that I’m shallow (in the sha-la-la-la low, in the sha-la-la-la-la low…sans Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper), and don’t have much else to talk about. Truth is, I’m talking about the weather because as those who’ve been following along know, any dramatic changes in the weather cause Ryan varying degrees of discomfort. Well, today was no exception, because Ryan has had an increased temp, and other symptoms (elevated heart rate, rosy-red cheeks, etc.) that could potentially lead to the flu…or worse. Hopefully, a little Motrin will eliminate the symptoms and any possibility of him getting sicker. Please pray accordingly. Thank you. xoxox

Ryan had another good day today…coughing sneezing attacks are a distant memory…back to “his normal” self…Praise God for His blessings. One day at a time…

It’s not my typical nature to shame or make fun of someone in public, unless in jest, and certainly not from a posture of malice of any kind, but in this instance, I simply cannot hold back my total befuddlement at the expense of this person whose IQ is clearly not on par with that of a daffodil. I apologize if this is one of your relatives.

As many of you may have heard, a tornado touched down somewhere near Davis, California yesterday. Well, in the picture here depicting a tornado approaching, the lady in the lower right-hand corner is seen holding onto a corner of the tent, as if her effort will prevent it from flying away. Really?? Does she really think she’ll be able to keep that tent grounded while the tornado swirls around at100-miles per hour plus? My guess is she’s a soccer mom, whose natural instincts have kicked in. You can’t see it, but she’s holding a caramel latte from Starbuck’s between her knees…

Y’all can relate to what I’m talking about. I know you do. You’ve seen this type of behavior before somewhere. It may be difficult, but we’re supposed to pray for people like this. I’m not sure I’m in any kind of state to pray now, so I’m counting on all of you to pick up the slack for me. I’ll join in after I’ve finished vomiting dry heaves from laughing so hard…

Went in to visit Ryan just now, before hitting the hay for the night. He was very much awake and aware of his surroundings, and my presence. It’s always great to see him like this. His eyes are so beautiful…if you’ll allow me to say that about my boy without labeling it as strange. Eh, I’d say it anyway. His eyes are full of light, which I know comes from God within…

Matthew 6:22 The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light.

You can know a lot about people just by looking at their eyes. And, it’s amazing how you can see God in someone. I know y’all know people like that…

Let God’s light shine through yours…

For now, I’m going to be a bit selfish and close my eyes for the next 5-6 hours. No light is getting in or out of these peepers. Praise God for eyelids!
