Not Finished Yet

Well, I'm writing this as a quick update to ask you to pray.  Just as we thought we were done with trips to the ER we are finding ourselves there once again.  

Scott has been having some shortness of breath for the last two weeks.  He had some chest pain yesterday.  Today he called his radiation oncologist and they now want him to go to the ER for blood work and a scan.  The impression of the oncologist is that Scott could possibly dealing with more blood clots, a pulmonary embolism, or he could be pre-heart attack... all side effects of the radiation treatments.

So, at this moment he is driving back from Fort Collins where he runs his route everyday.  He will go to the ER at the University of Colorado Hospital, where he has had his other stays and treatments.  I will be looking for someone to watch the kids and then I am going to try and meet him down there.  I definitely do not want to take the kids due to all the sickness and flu!

Please pray that all will go well with Scott and that we will have answers quickly.  Also pray that both Scott and myself will remain healthy despite coming in contact with so many sick people in the hospital.  (For those of you who think the hospital is a "clean" place, I'm here to tell you that it is just about the dirtiest place you could encounter!)  In addition, please pray that the children (especially Aspen) will do well while I am gone.  It is so difficult for me to feel like I need to be in two places at once!  I know the kids need me, but I know that Scott needs me to be with him also.  Pray that I can be strong for everyone, because right now I am feeling very weak.  I just wanted things to be finished!

Thank you for loving us and praying for us!  I had hoped that this would be over soon, but apparently the Lord is still having us learn and grow as we continue to walk through the fire.  I will let you all know what the outcome is.
