Day 20

Today was day 20 at the hospital, but day 25 since it happened, it feels like a lifetime ago!! I have become very at home in the ICU and will be happy but sad to leave. I have my favorite nurses, and they all laugh at me because I "Request"....they say they don't do request, but we always seem to end up with the best nurses!! They take really good care of the Soldiers here at BAMC, and especially good care of Grand!
We went outside again was actually hot enough to where we both were sweating! Grand got to talk to his Dad and sister, grabbed the phone out of his Moms hand and put it to his ear...and then he told the boys hello, and that he loved them. He was telling us what was hurting and was just one of those little steps ahead we are thankful for!! His stats and white blood cell count still up, but we are praying that tomorrow will shed some light for us on what is wrong...also surgery to remove the antibiotic beads in his legs!!

I have to say,.....I ache to worship with others, and sing...which I do a lot by myself or for Grand....every time I open the bible to scripture, it somehow ALWAYS relates to this situation, God is speaking to me daily and I have never felt so close to him!! I love Jeremiah 29:11..."For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future!!!!


  1. Carrie, thanks so much for your blog! It helps me picture in my mind what is going on in your day to day. I am so happy that Grand is able to communicate to you and to the doctors more about what he's feeling. It makes me want to weep tears of joy to hear you write that he got to talk to your boys. How awesome is our God!

    I wish so much that you were here to worship with us at MD (sorry, I'm being possesive). I think about you when we're singing 'cause I know how much you enjoy and need it. Wish we were close enough to give you a hug and visit Grand. My prayers are that he will continue to heal quickly, that the infections will just disappear and that Grand will continue to make progress day by day. For you, I ask for strength, endurance, patience, peace, comfort and hope in ABUNDANCE! It's so hard to be strong all the time. Rest in God's arms and feel our prayers sustaining you, my friend!

  2. My dear friend Carrie, I'm glad God is giving you both little blessings all the time, just like i knew he would. I begin each day praying for your family. Words are so inadequate, so just know these thoughts come to you with a long heart hug. Love you friend!
