All I can say is WOW!

Today was one of those days that I could of probably done without, I had great plans of getting our family pictures done and I was also looking forward to going to a Christmas party this evening. But God had other things in mind. Thursday night Luke began to get sick and all day Friday, instead of getting the hundred things I had planned to get done, I either held him or sat next to him to watch his oxymeter numbers. He was coughing and having difficulty breathing along with a very high fever, needless to say Gordy and I both did a lot of praying to God for him to get better. At about 11:00 p.m. we began to pack up Luke's stuff and get ready to go to the Hospital because we just couldn't get his fever under control he was at 104. 6, but finally after laying hands on him and praying again, he began to get a little better. That night we were able to get some much needed sleep as I was up all night the previous one.

In the morning he was still struggling and had a slight fever so I thought perhaps I should take him into the urgent care to be sure he didn't have pneumonia. Once the nurse took his vitals and saw that he was having to have at least 3 liters of oxygen to keep his numbers up she rushed us into seeing the Dr. They were all rushing getting some oxygen on him and decided that we needed to go straight to the Emergency Room. I had thought about taking him there in the first place but decided to go to the Urgent Care instead because I thought they would just take x-rays and perhaps send us home, oh me oh my I'm always the eternal optimist. To make a long story even longer, we where checked into the ER and taken back to a room right away for our 4 hour stay, don't get me wrong I'm very thankful that we only had to stay 4 hours. God had mercy on Luke and I and gave us a great Dr. who really listened to me and knew that I would be able to take care of him at home. They gave him two breathing treatments and some streroids and sent us home.

I am totally amazed at how well Luke is doing, his numbers are awesome he is down to 1/4 liters of oxygen and his heart rate is lower than it has been in a long time. I keep saying to Gordy, I just can't believe my eyes. It is so tempting on days like this to question God and say how come You couldn't of just touched him last night or this morning, how come we had to take one more trip to the Hospital. Then I remember God is asking me for my complete trust in His timing of healing Luke, I don't need to understand His ways, I only need to trust Him.


I was blessed when Luke and I got home from the Hospital we had some good friends here dropping off a jar of Ambratose, we had Luke taking this supplement for a long time and then we ran out and I've been thinking that we need to get him back on it again. Not only were they kind enough to go pick it up for us they also decided to pay for it, thank you Mike and Joyce, you are both appreciated greatly.

Please be praying not only for Luke's complete healing but also for Lily and Zeke, they are both coughing and running a slight fever, I know that this is where Luke got whatever it is that is going around. It would be so easy for me to say that's it, I'm not taking him or my other children anywhere they could get sick, but I realize that would be silly as we have places to go. I continue to ask the Lord for His wisdom in directing my steps.


Love in Christ,
Luke's Mommy Sue

Sue and Gordy you are all in our constant prayers and I am so thankful that you were only at the ER for 4 hours. I know you would rather not have to go in.

Today, Sunday, I am on my way to Spokane to take a friend to Spokane to be with her mom at Sacred Heart. Her mom is kept mostly alive with a defibrilator. One thing she does know, that is God and knows that He is who is keeping her alive. Prayer for Donna, and Fran and I would be appreciated. Thank you.

Love you, glad Luke is getting better. We will keep Zeke and Lily in prayers too.

Love, Lori

Sue, Thanks for letting us know what is going on. Shane and I were praying for Luke to be healed last night. I am sorry that you had to go to the hospital. It's funny to read the way you asked the Lord why you had to go to the hospital before Luke got better...it is so plan to me why! The Lord must have used you, Luke and Gordy to touch someones life up there. I know that I say that like it is nothing, I do not mean to sound that way. I just know that where ever you and your family are that the people around you have to know that the love of God is with you and they can fill it. Someone will be touched because of you and Luke. God uses ALL things for his glory and you and Gordy are two people that allow that and welcome it into your life. Thanks for being that way. I look forward to the day that God will use you and Luke in a much different way. We love ya'll!

Blessings, Shane, Julie and Children
