So, Eric is in Alabama for the week. I'm really not even sure where. But he just texted me and said he's been taken to the ER. He was in a class and started to get very dizzy/nauseous and had tightness in his jaw along with a cold sweat. He's in the ER, he's had 3 nitroglycerins, an aspirin, chest x-rays, blood work, IV, and he's on oxygen via nasal canula.
Please be in prayer for him, that all of his test results are normal and that everything is okay. Pray for me as I'm 8-ish hours away from him, and receiving all of this information via text message. Pray for peace for us both, and wisdom for the doctors and nurses.
On a happier note, he told me not to worry, that he wasn't alone. Someone from Homeland Security is with him. Yeah, honey, that makes me feel better :)
I'm a wife. I'm a mom. I'm a photographer. I'm a lover of Jesus. My house is a mess, my kids are dirty, we eat take out more often than not. My life is loud, busy and crazy. And that's okay with me.
This is Eric, the man you've been praying for. He's a paramedic. He quilts in his spare time. No, I couldn't make that up :) He has NASH (a form of liver disease, non-alcoholic) and diabetes, but those things don't define him. He's a man of God, an insanely wonderful husband, and the best daddy in the world.. Just ask these guys..
Our daughter Ali, she's 9. She's fiercely opinionated and strong willed. She's a Daddy's girl, but the umbilical cord hasn't but cut from me, either. She's a gymnast, and proud of it. She spends more time upside down or turning flips than she does walking. She's crazy smart, and absolutely sure of it. She is my insufferable little know it all.
Our son Dylan, 7. We lovingly refer to him as Chubs. Or Chubby. Or fat boy. Ahem. He is all boy, as you can see by his crazy wild energy. He has the highest pain tolerance of any child I have ever met. He plays soccer and does gymnastics, but truly he is a gamer, a nerd. He is an avid reader and loves to climb. Not to be outdone by his sister, he's a drama king, but to him, I'm the best mommy in the world.
I'm here to use my voice. So many people can't. In a world of darkness, I just want to help God's light to shine through. I pray that my words are His, and my love is His, as well. This is my journey through the darkness. To start are the beginning of the story, click here.
