Got Your Cleaning Supplies????

Do you have your cleaning supplies ready???


Because Mark is getting ready to come HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

With cautious optimism we are expecting hubby to come home in the next few days.

He finally has a complete diagnosis of Legionella (bacteria), Pseudomonas (bacteria) AND Aspergillus (MOLD) growing in his lungs. Now that we have the real culprit we can administer the correct course of treatment and get this guy home.

Don't get me wrong, I realize he has a Very LONG road of recovery ahead but it will be So nice to have him home and be able to begin the process of healing together.

As you can see he is Very Frail

Additional medications will be added to his already long list, protein, protein, protein will be the menu of necessity in order to put some meat on his very frail body, lots of water to maintain kidney health and regular blood tests to watch his kidney function. Taking antibiotics and anti-fungal medications is counter active to taking anti-rejection meds. A vicious cycle that must be monitored closely in order to save his kidney AND save his life!!!

So now, in my spare time, I begin the process of cleaning a house that has been well occupied in my absence yet un-cleaned in, well shall we say, a Very Long Time.

I will update when we receive our marching orders:) In the meantime, I cannot express my gratitude to each of you for your continual prayer on behalf of hubby and our family. My heart so desires to reach out and hug each of you in person and allow my eyes to express my love for you. Until that time you have to know that I appreciate each comment and word of encouragement received during this very long (34) day hospital stay.

Considering Cleaning With Great Joy (Sort-of),



  1. I wish I lived close by so I could help you with the cleaning. I'll continue to pray. That's all I can do for now but it's powerful and I don't take it lightly.

    Be encouraged, dear friend!

  2. ditto Cindy-Letters. I'm reading hope alive in you. I pray family, church-family, friends will gather round you and support you through this time. I pray for God-strength and His loving arms around you.

  3. Praising Him for leading and guiding each step. Praying hard for a sprinkle of pixie dust and a super happy and clean home :) I wish I was closer I would be over there scrubbing for you my friend. Hugs!

  4. I'll remember you well, sister, in this time of healing; you are a brave, strong woman, and I know that you will be exceedingly glad to see your husband return to health day by day.

    Prayers abound on my end.


  5. Just dropped over here from Elaine's Peace for the Journey.

    I'm praying God will bless your hubby back to full health.

  6. When are we cleaning? I owe you one!


Hi Friend, I read and cherish every single comment you leave! You bring Joy to my heart! Blessings, Cindy
