Ammonia levels went up after the expensive drip stopped during the night. Please pray that they go down. We won't be going home today.

Ed is in the ICU. His blood was full of ammonia. We discovered this after  chemotherapy yesterday.  It built up over the past week's treatments to unsafe/critical levels.

This is rare. Very rare. The hospital has had only one other case of this. There was only one dose of medication for this condition in the entire state of Minnesota,  and it is flowing into Ed's veins as I write.

What does too much ammonia look like?  Increased headache, nausea, greenish pallor.

How did the doctor think of testing for this?


It really is rare. You should see the dollar signs on this stuff. That is code for "expensive."

Ed improves. He's taking it in stride.

There is a young man on this floor that we met last summer here. He too has ALL.  I talked to his mother last night.  She is keeping hopeful about his healing, but he is dying.

I have every hope that Ed will win at leukemia,  but death is all around us. I attended a funeral this past weekend of a most unlikely death. She was young, fit, and full of life. She was also ready to die.

We live the God-appointed days, and no more or less. There is such peace in that knowledge.  We can use God's provision of Medicine and medical treatment, or natural remedies,  but ultimately our days are His to number, and He has them already planned.

It's up to us to determine to believe, repent, and accept the way of life for eternity...Jesus Christ.

Thankful for the peace in that.

Thank you for your prayers. GOD BLESS YOU!

Revelation 12, Passover 2015, Blood Moon Tetrad, WOW!!

Truth IS Stranger Than Fiction

Wish me well today. I'm thrilled to prepare a midnight feast for 12 Amish folk.

They are stopping by on a journey. My friend is their driver, and he called last night to see if they can stop for a snack...

Chili and corn bread...?

Diet restrictions?

I have no idea.

Let the preparations commence!

Ill let you know how it goes.

We had a nice time! Our supper went well, and we had fun conversation, some in German---Platt deutsch, really. They left around 1:00 am, and we headed for bed. It was a nice time.

Prayer Please, for a friend:

I helped give a shower last Saturday for a young bride. She is the daughter of one of my dearest friends.
Tragedy today...her groom's mother suffered a fatal heart attack today.
So incredibly sad and totally unexpected.  Please pray for his family. The wedding is one month away. So much to grieve, so much to do, such a critical situation.
Thank you for praying!
