I have friends in high places!

Well, you all know the journey we have been through since the week of Christmas, but what you all don’t know is how bad it really was.  Saturday night when we finally called the ambulance to come and get Dennis it was bad.  When you have SCI by the time you know it’s bad, it’s beyond bad.  He was full of toxins and went unresponsive in the E.R. at Fairview.  We transported him on to Enid, and honestly if I didn’t have two of the best friends God could send someone, I wouldn’t have made it.  I was still sick so Max rode with Dennis to Enid and Debbie drove me.  We may have got stopped speeding and we might have turned on some tears, but we had a very lovely police officer who took pity on us,  You know you have great friends when they spend their Saturday sitting with you at two E.R.'s and get home about 2:30 in the morning.  After we brought Dennis home he was still touch and go and Max came by almost every day to check on him. I don’t think I have ever lost it like I did this time.  I let fear grip me like never before and I am so glad I have a mother and a pastor who I can talk to and who have the Godly wisdom to counsel and direct me.   I know I have said this a thousand times but we have great friends.  It’s not by accident, it’s a God thing.  He put them in our lives and we are forever grateful.  Here are a couple of photos of some friends doing friend things!
                                             They go to Cleveland Ohio with you!
                                    They find some way to get you to the dock to enjoy the day!
                                                              They take you on boat rides!
                                              They push you up a steep hill!
                                                  They take you shopping and act silly!
                     They take you shopping and make you carry all their stuff cause they buy too much!                                                             
The have great parties

 They also fix are electronics, trim our trees, come take our dishwasher out and so on and so on.  God blessed us with these people.  Much love, Cheri

New beginnings!

Well, now that the crazy and not so fun holidays are over, we are on the uphill climb.  Dennis is 99 % better and I am human again.  Praise God that His mercies are new every day!  I would not have made it this far if He wasn’t holding my hand every minute of every hour of every day.   I thought I would share some Christmas photos now that I feel like posting.  Remember in these photos I am sick as a dog and Dennis is not much better.  We put up a brave front!

Sickness, Christmas and the ICU

Two days before Christmas Eve I got the flu.  Bad.  Somehow I managed to host Christmas Eve and we had a great time.  Christmas Day came and still going getting a little better every day.  Saturday after Christmas my husband Dennis started feeling bad and by that evening we were in the E.R and he was unresponsive.  He had a bowel obstruction and it was bad.  After spending 3 days in the ICU with no sleep he was getting a little crazy.  He looked at me that day and said, "get me home".  He was discharged and we made our way home with a little pneumonia in one lung.  Well, that was enough to keep his oxygen stats down and it has been a struggle.  Last night I think we had break through and we are going to start our climb back up.  So I am leaving 2014 behind and looking for the new start to 2015!
