One of the blog gang is in the hospital for repair. UPDATE!


Blogger, and a friend to many, Stephen is in the hospital with a bad infection. I just heard the news from a couple of mutual blog buddies. Those of you who can, say a little prayer for him and his family. He's good people.

UPDATE: Both Matt at Troublesome Times and Duke at Down Range have been keeping everyone posted, having talked with and/or visited Stephen. He is still quaranteed but he got to the hospital just in time, literally hours from death from a raging infection from a simple puncture wound. He's on serious pain meds but relayed he really appreciates the notes and thoughts and prayers. Visit his blog and drop him a note, I know he'll appreciate it. Also keep his wife and grandaughter in your prayers. This has been hard on them both. - B.

  6. Done.
    I knew he was feeling poorly, but stubborn cuss that he is he was holding off going to the doc. When he finally did he had quite a knot on his leg and tried to play it off like it was no big deal.
    I don't know anyone else like that...

  8. Stephen's friend Duke has been updating everyone. Stephen is still in the hospital but turning the corner on the infection. They may still need to do more surgery, but he's on the backside of this, it appears and pining for a cheeseburger. Prayers are still welcome for he, his wife and their beautiful granddaughter who lives with them.

    Duke, bless you for keeping people in the loop and for taking the time to drop me an email.

I started this blog so the child I gave up for adoption could get to know me, and in turn, her children, as well as share stories for a family that lives too far away. So please keep it friendly, kid safe, and open to discussion, not criticism. This is my home. You can ive in yours as you wish, but this is my place.

Enjoy your time here and I hope you come away with good thoughts and memories and not needing eye bleach -)
