Hospital Day #9 - 12/7/23 - Patience is a fruit of the Holy Spirit




Hospital Day #9 - 12/7

Patience is a fruit of the Holy Spirit.  Apparently, God is giving us a bushel-full of that today ūü§£


Brittney’s blood pressure is still too low (70s-90s/30s-40s)…so we’ll be at UL hospital at least thru tomorrow (like a 7 day cruise!!). 


Thankfully her resting heart rate has sped up (from 40s up to 70s/80s) and she is feeling much better. She has been able to get out of bed and walk around the room some and was disconnected from her IV meds. We are grateful for Brittney to be strong enough to have left the ICU today and moved into a step-down unit.


We are thankful for the cautious care here at UL; Brittney’s situation has been quite life-threateningly serious and rare.  But God has kept her alive and she is still vertical (halfway at least in the hospital bed) and kickin’ (me…when I touch her foot IV or make bad jokes)!  


Thank you for all of your amazing prayers, love, and kindness!


Ways to pray:

  • joy and peace in the waiting, especially for our girlies
  • wisdom for our medical care team in this season
  • for a restful night and to be home tomorrow  :)


Colossians 1:10-12 “walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; [11] being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy; [12] giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.”


Here’s a video of Alia upon a hospital release a 7 years ago today… hopefully we will be singing like this tomorrow!
