Weekend Update

Sorry I haven't been around. I've had a lot on my mind over the weekend. Friday, my brother's girlfriend/roommate--who has been with us so many years, we consider her family--went to the emergency room at our local hospital. For more than a week, she'd had a severe migraine-like headache that kept getting worse, plus fever, aches, back and chest pain. From our local ER they immediately transported her to the UK Medical Center in Lexington. The diagnosis wasn't good. She has spinal meningitis. She's still in serious condition so prayers would be much appreciated.

Saturday, I got out of bed and went into the kitchen, only to discover that my refrigerator had stopped working. On the 4th of July, no less. Buying another one was no problem. All the stores were open, but getting it delivered immediately was another matter. So I called my uncle. Even though he had out of town company in for the holiday, he was kind enough to come straight over with his truck.

Anyway, just thought I'd report in since I haven't been around for a couple of days.

  1. Devon, I'm so sorry to learn about your almost sister-in-law. As I was reading, I was afraid the word "meningitis" was coming... I'll be praying for her, your family, and the medical staff.

    The fridge story goes right along with it, doesn't it? Family takes care of each other.

  3. Jeez! Hope she does okay. That's tough.
    And doesn't it figure about the fridge? These things only happen at the most difficult time.
    Take care. Hope s-i-l recovers quickly.

  4. Ladies, thanks for the well-wishes. As of last night, her condition has markedly improved.
