Bill writes in his journal, asking for prayer for his wife, Louisiana, who is in the hospital with pneumonia.

Dear Journal~

I am afraid I'm not doing well today: my wife, Louisiana, has been admitted into the hospital.  She was admitted last night and is currently on oxygen and on an IV, as well as a heart monitor.  She was having problems breathing.

The diagnosis: Double pneumonia.  Both lungs are just riddled with it. She had been feeling poorly and suffering from what seemed like a cold, but then yesterday, she started complaining of difficult breathing and was coughing up blood-tinged sputum, so I had no chioce but to run her to the ER.  She was immediately admitted and is now on the sixth floor.  Louie will probably be in the hospital for at least several days to a week, according to her doctors.

So it looks like I will be running to and from the house to here at Vanderbilt Hospital for the next few days.  I have been allowed to take some time off work so I can be with my wife.  Might hurt the old paycheck, but right now, Louie's health is much more important.

And then there's the added stress of possible severe weather, including the threat of tornadoes.  After seeing the incredible damage in Missouri yesterday on the news, that does very little to calm down my nerves.  Branson, Missouri, got hit hard, and Harrisburg, Illinois had an EF-4 tornado pass through; at last count, 9 people had been confirmed dead, ant there were over 100 injuries.  

And now Nashville, Tennessee, is right in the thick of a moderate weather risk.  Lovely.  Something else to drive my blood prsssure up to alarming levels ... if I don't end up having a stroke or a heart attack, it will be a miracle!

Well,. I won't be on here too much longer: gotta head on to the hospital, to see how Louie is faring.  I know the kids have been worried about their mommy (and understandably so).  Just keep us in  your prayers and pray the weather doesn't turn deadly for us here in Middle Tennessee!  Take care and may God bless you; tahnks in advance for the prayers!

~Bill.  :(  

I'll keep you updated every few days or so ....

What a shame and what a hard way to go for both Bill and his Louisiana. Here's hoping they both come through okay.

Poor Louisiana! :( Based on your hospital experience, perhaps?!? (Well, not with pneumonia, but high blood pressure.) Hope she (AND YOU!!) get to feeling better REAL soon! Great story, Karen.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
