My Mom & Dad

Today, I want to talk about my parents... They could really use your prayers.

They have had a trip to Hawaii scheduled for some time now and were really excited about it! Long story semi-short - my mom got really sick before they left but they went anyways thinking that she would get better. She didn't. She's been in the hospital twice since they've been in Hawaii and the doctors can't figure out what's wrong with her. The second time she was released from the condo, my dad went out to go boogie boarding. He was involved in an accident and knocked unconscious. Thankfully, thankfully, someone was there and pulled him out of the water. He told my mom he thought he was going to drown. *breathe* He was taken by ambulance to a local hospital where they discovered that he had lost all movement. He was transferred from there to Honolulu where he is currently in the Neuro ICU. My mother is bed ridden in the condo where they were staying in on a different island. She is hoping that she will feel healthy enough to soon travel to Honolulu to be with my dad who is alone and I'm sure, scared.

Movement and feeling are slowly coming back on his right side. I'm hoping the left returns soon as well. It's truly the vacation from you-know-where.

Prayers and faith on their behalf would be so appreciated more than you know.

I'm trying to figure out a way to be able to get to Phoenix so I can be there when they get home so I can help them get back on their feet. But I'm not sure how that will work yet...

In a perfect world for this situation, where Kyle is no longer a dental student and I didn't have two kids who needed me 24/7, I'd like to be able to get to Hawaii to be with my mom while my dad is in the hospital and to help them fly home, I don't know how they are going to be able to fly home as sick as they both are. But that's a little harder than just getting to Phoenix.

Please pray for them.

Prayers are already being answered!! My aunt called and said she was figuring out how to get to Phoenix so she can be there for them. The selfish bit in me wishes I could be there to help. But then again, I've got two babies and I'm not sure how helpful I'd be. So at least my aunt can be there.
