Please keep me in your prayers. I have been flat on my back, in bed and in excruciating pain since Sunday afternoon. My back is worse than it was previously. I can only stand and sit for a few minutes at a time before I am hurting so bad it takes my breath away.

I will be having an MRI tomorrow morning and hopefully I will know more by Friday.

It has been hard for me. I am so used to running our household and caring for everyone. I'm not getting much of that done lying in bed.

Thankfully, Joel had taken this week off for vacation and has been a big help with keeping everyone fed and tackling the never ending mountain of laundry. However, I do feel really bad about him having to do all this on his vacation. He has been looking forward to this time off for a while and now has been requisitioned to be my nurse and chief cook and bottle washer. But, he is doing all of this with grace and love. It makes me love him all the more.

So, if I am absent for a while it is because I can't sit at the computer. (Thankfully my parents loaned me their lap top so that I could post this) I will try to keep you updated.

Missing you all!


  1. Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear that! What a sweet helper you have! I will pray!

  2. I'm sooo sorry to hear this..however isn't the timing perfect for your dh to be there for u and I'm sure he doesn't mind looking after you..I'll be ever mindful of what's going on..and lifting u up in prayers.

    If you could get some oil (lavendar) and apply it generously I wonder if it would bring comfort?!

    So sorry!

  3. I hope you get well and the MRI shows what is wrong-of it is that bad!-Praying for His will:)

  4. Oh goodness, I hope your back gets better and by the way your blog looks great! Do you design it yourself?? Thank the Lord for a good husband!

  5. So sorry to hear this! Hope you are feeling much better very soon!

  6. I am so sorry to hear this-I will keep you in my prayers...Thank God for your sweet husband. I know my husband could do it all-the cooking, the helping around the house...but it would be a mess at the end!!!

  7. Jenn - I am so, so sorry - I can only imagine how hard it is, especially since it doesn't mean you get to stop being a mommy. You are definitely in my prayers - love you, my friend!

  8. Just said a prayer for you and I know you will be back on your feet in no time.

    Made me tear up thinking of you hurting so bad (I am PMSing however, LOL). Take it easy and I'm sure your family will do their best to help you. I know you are in good hands. :)

  9. So sorry to hear this. I'm glad your husband is there to take care of you and the kids while you're in such pain. I will be praying for you!

  10. Lord, I ask that You will help the doctors find out what is wrong so they can help Jenn. Ease her pain and make her back well again. Give her peace and rest during this time, and thank You that her husband can take the time to help her. May they all draw closer as a family because of this. Amen.
