feeling helpless

ugh ok my Internet keeps going on me and erasing my posts! grr

J found out yesterday that what he had thought was a brain virus when he was 21 was actually viral spinal meningitis! I can't understand that they didn't tell him what it was! that is serious! He sure has had some strange things happen to him.

He also found out that he has white blood cells in his spinal fluid and they are going to be running more tests today to find out why. He started an 8 week course of steroids last night and today he is starting his 3rd round of IVIG treatments. He is a bit emotional and I wish more than anything that I could be there with him. I feel so utterly helpless sitting here. I have been reading a novel cuz it seems the only thing I can do to escape the constant worry and thoughts.

Wow. You do have some huge things in your life right now. Hard to understand. But God is in control!

Why don't you pack up the girls and head down to the coast for a week at least. They can miss school for this. You could stay with Mom and Dad or with Tammie, I'm sure someone down there has room for you!! Pack up and go!!

I think Shash has a great idea. Get the school work in advance from the kids' teachers and hit the road. You'll feel so much better just being in the same place with J.

I'm gonna 3rd shash's idea. I think he really needs you right now, and you need him too. Get their work and go. I'm still praying for you and him daily.

My heart and prayers go out to you and J. I understand your pain and frustration and helplessness. My prayer is peace for you while he is away and full answers to what can be done for him. I also pray for healing for J.
