Prayers Are Amazing and So Is My Man!

Before I go into a full update and making up for lost time, I know many of you have been following my facebook updates today so I will start there today and hopefully give a thorough update by the end of the weekend.

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1

Adam has continued in his fashion taking us on a tour of all the nation's finest hospitals.  Today we are currently admitted at Oregon Health and Science Hospital in Portland, OR.  Actually the whole day together has consisted of 2 ambulance rides, 2 hospitals, and 3 seizures and 2 wiped out people.  Thankfully after sedation Adam has been able to get some much needed sleep and rest.  I will take it as a good sign that he just asked me to climb in his hospital bed and sleep with him instead of the bed given to me... he loves me and is so sweet and tender towards me even when he doesn't feel well... I love my man!

Right now the team here is trying to figure out cause for the seizures and his nausea.  Running tests and scans to locate and treat whatever it is that is going on.  It's been a long day and after the third seizure, it took Adam quite sometime before he starting to be responsive and following commands.  As we close out our day, he is doing much better, taking, and walking on his own... thank you for all those who so quickly responded to my prayer requests and for texting me, leaving me facebook messages, emails, and all your encouragement... it was truly a blessing to feel and see God's powerful hands working today in the midst of the craziness that this day brought.

God's peace has been a thick cloud engulfing Adam and I today... it's brought showers of comfort and His unending love.   I can honestly say, I hate hospitals and often cringe just at the thought of having to walk through the door of one, but today He has been my Refuge, my Strength, my Peace, and my Deliverer from my fear and unbelief.  In my devotion this morning it states, "unbelief looks at God through circumstances... but faith puts God between itself and circumstances and looks at them through Him."  I am praying for the strength to endure God's will whatever that is for this moment... even if it is to walk this journey through another hospital.

But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble. Psalm 59:16

Well if we're going to be in the hospital, Adam sure did pick one with quite a view!  Rejoicing in God's beauty that we are surrounded by and celebrating His magnificent creation.  Not just outside, but in Adam as well... I love my man and I love all that he has taught me in the last several years walking this journey with him.  He consistently points me to the cross, he shows me Jesus every day through his own actions and words... he continues to make me a better person.  I thank God for the gift of Adam he has given me everyday... especially because there have  been too many times where I wasn't sure I would have the blessing of laying next to him and hear him pray over me... yes my man loves me and loves God so much more... I am one blessed and rambling wife right now.
