Update on My Daughter
Jeff Chandler

Posted on 04/08/2004 12:13:23 AM PDT by Jeff Chandler

I'm afraid that Elizabeth is not going to be able to attend Easter Mass. Her Crohn's disease is flaring up, and she is undergoing treatment for it, which will probably keep her in the hospital for a while longer.

She is in some pain, but handling it well. She can't have any more morphine, since it puts her digestive tract to sleep, and she needs to get it going.

Her spirits are still good. Her sisters visit her often, and she loves having time with them. Tonight they brought a movie to watch, and her Mom and I left the three of them to enjoy themselves.

Her Mom and I stay with her in shifts. She is very mature in many ways, but in some ways she is still a child, and she doesn't like to be alone without family. I have taken off work for almost three weeks, but I will have to go back next Monday, since our cash reserves are running low. I pray that she will not regress any while I am at work; she prefers my presence when she is scared.

Theresa is back home now. Rehabilitation was recommended, but she is a very stubborn woman, and insisted on coming home. My father-in-law is very proud and devoted to her, but I worry about his having to care for her. He is old, and has endured a heart attack and aneurysm surgery.

I don't know about the fate of Mike or Chris. The hospital is not allowed to discuss patients with strangers. I will continue to pray for them. Jose was discharged, and is expected to do well.

Thank you all for your prayers. I don't remember if I told you, but when Elizabeth was hemmoraghing, she bled for 12 hours while they pumped blood and other solutions into her. She stabilized right before the operation, and came through it so well that she didn't need the respirator after wards as predicted. I attribute that to your prayers.

God bless you.

Continued prayers

Lord, You invite all who are burdened to come to You. Allow your healing hand to heal . Touch her soul with Your compassion for others. Touch her heart with Your courage and infinite love for all. Touch her mind with Your wisdom, that her mouth may always proclaim Your praise. Teach her to reach out to You in her need, and help her to lead others to You by her example. Most loving Heart of Jesus, bring her health in body and spirit that she may serve You with all her strength. Touch gently this life which You have created, now and forever. We ask this through Christ our Lord who lives and reigns with the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen.

Heavenly Father, we return to give You thanks that Your grace is sufficient. We claim this for Elizabeth and we claim this for all in Jeff's family, for the burden of illness is great. May Your mighty hand of healing be upon each one, that they be strengthened above all that is expected. Return Elizabeth home, we pray, that she might rejoice with her beloved family during this blessed season. Calm her spirit as her Dad returns to work ... refresh her Mom as she continues her vigil at her side. Walk with them, dear Lord, for You know the way. In the Name of Jesus, I pray, Amen ...

Prayers for an Easter miracle! Thank God in all things because He knows what he can use for good. I've learned that the worse times can lead to the best times and though we don't understand we have to trust God to be there always.

Amen! Tiki said it so well, it bears repeating.
