Something serious, for a change

I normally use this blog to share with you all the crazy/silly/funny happenings in our little family. But tonight I come here with a serious request for prayer.

Tomorrow morning, I'll be driving a very good friend down to Rainrock to walk with her through the intake process. This will be her second stay at Rainrock, and all I can say at this point is that she's very, very sick right now and needs to get better. If she gets any worse, well, she really can't, she won't survive it. Please pray for her and also for me, as it will be a difficult and emotional day for many reasons. I'm so scared for my friend, but I know she will be in the right hands within the next 24 hours. Also, just being back there is going to be really hard for me. The one time I visited back in July, I had to leave early because I couldn't stop crying. It's a very emotional place for me to be.

Shawn and Charlie, on a visit down to see me while I was there.

"Friend", you know who you are - and I know you check my blog. You are in-flight on your way here to Portland as I type this. I love you. I care for you. I want more than anything for you to find healing and hope. Please be strong, I know you can do this, I believe in you. I know you are still in there somewhere and you can hear me, although you're very sick right now.

Breathe. It's going to be okay. And know that I am always, always here for you. And if you need to be reminded of all the people who love and support you...

I just read this as I was going thru your blog. I don't know how I missed it before. I am sorry to have put you (and many others) through this emotional distress. Yes what a hard hard day that was...that led to a very long year. and so on.
I care so much for you, someday Mars, someday I will pay you back in a way that will show you how much I care. THank you for helping save my life. Although its a continued struggle, Im here because of you. You are a really good friend. I think about you so much and you are in my prayers. yes my prayers.
take care, miss you and someday, we will be healthy together. so proud of all your hard work.
love nikkers

Oh Nikki. Made me cry.
I'm so sorry you are there again, but I'm also so thankful that you are there because that is where you need to be right now. Take your time, do the hard work you need to do to come back to us again. You are not alone. I am here for you. God is here for you (I know you know that). I know it might not feel like He hears you when you are praying, but I promise you He does. I promise. And He cares. And He wants you. You are loved.
I LOVE YOU. I will come down and visit when I can, and you can finally meet baby Drew.
Loves, and a big hug.
