Divine physician and healer of the sick, we turn to You in this time of illness. O dearest comforter of the troubled, alleviate our worry and sorrow with Your gentle love and grant us the grace and strength to accept this burden. We place our worries in Your hands. We place Randall under Your care and humbly ask that You restore Your servant to health again.
Above all, grant us the grace to acknowledge Your holy will and know that whatsoever You do, You do for the love of us.
Randall was admitted to the hospital again last night. There is no rhyme or reason. There isn't one specific thing that sets off the gastroparesis. His stomach decides when and if it wants to work or not... It's very frustrating. It makes it worse when the ER doctors just think he is there looking for pain meds.
We were lucky last night to get a doc that was compassionate and caring. She took good care of him. I figured that she would treat and release but she didn't. To my surprise she said almost from the beginning that she would make sure he was admitted. That has never happened on the first visit. We usually have to go back at least 3, sometimes 4 times before they will admit him.
I don't know how long he will be in this go 'round. I am asking for you to keep him in your thoughts and prayers for a speedy and quick recovery!
