    Good morning all. I have a long story but will try to be brief. Back in mid-October I asked for prayer for my husband (Don) when he fell and broke his leg and shattered his knee cap. He was in the hospital and rehab for 3 weeks, Came home and was doing well although at his post-op visit it showed his leg was slow to heal. Started mega doses of calcium and Vitamin d. So then he started doing even better and was even able to bear his weight fairly well. Then about Dec 21st he woke up gasping for air and severe pain in his right kidney area. I called the ambulance and he was transported to the ER. Second day in it was discovered his lungs and legs are full of blood clots. Then test found masses on lung, bladder and cecum. I’m pissed! He ALWAYS has regular physicals, colon checks, and all. He is a Viet Nam Vet. And yes, he got the jab. The 2 shots, then the booster which caused him to have a mild seizure. I begged him not to get the jabs. But he did. Now we are going to several doctors, including a cancer doctor, He was in the hospital this time for 8 days over Christmas and during the big freeze. We have no water, I lost over 100 pounds of winter squash and all in an area we never dreamed they would have frozen and ruined. And the projects he was working on remain unfinished. I have little to no help bringing in water and fire wood and my health is not the best. (I’m 68, a retired nurse and have severe arthritis and a few other little things wrong.) We have a small 7 acre homestead in WV and have spent the last 7 years working on it and the 100+ year old house. I’m praying for God’s Mercy now, and for Him to send us some help. I’d appreciate all the prayers we can get! Thanks for ‘listening’ and I’m sorry for being so wordy. I’m asking for Don’s healing above all. And I need help in keeping us going, Hopefully my daughter (who has chronic migraine disorder) will be able to come soon from NC to help as much as she can. Again, thanks for your prayers.

    I’m very sorry to hear about your trials and your husband’s health. Not at all to seem callous but your story helps teach us the importance of finding ways to build real lasting relationships with nearby neighbors. It’s sad to see so many of us isolated from those who live nextdoor because of so many things which have all worked together to create the atmosphere of isolation.

    Thanks for your openness and honesty in this time of trials. You and yours are in my prayers.

    @Sojourner – Not at all callous! I thank you for saying this. One of the things I want is to show that community is very important. I’m trying to find local like-minded folks, but we are extremely remote and no takers so far. Also, I want to point out that even when you think your preps and all are safe, and sufficient, guess what? ANYTHING can happen to wipe you out at any time! We thought we were good to go for about 2 years. Not any more! Thank you, Sojourner for your wonderful comment.💕✝

      God bless you dear sister. I know it’s not easy building relationship with neighbors even when we try.

      Your sharing this very intimate suffering with us all can be used for good as you are hoping it will be. I’m agreeing with you that it does. Now may the Lord comfort, you and bless you with His great grace and mercy which are ever near.

    I’m so sorry to hear, but you’re right anything can happen at any time it’s a serious wake up call to show how vulnerable we are.

    I’ll pray for you and your husband’s recovery. 🙏

    Praying for healing for your husband and strength for you. Danny at Deep South Homestead was just talking about this same thing. It is scary when your spouse is sick and you have the weight of everything upon you.

    You have our prayers and HIS power to pull you through. Keep posting updates and I will keep praying.

    Blessings.
