Here We Are…Again!

We got home later in the evening last night and then guess where we went this morning?  If you guessed back to the ER, you are right.

It was like Friday morning all over again.  He was sweating, had shortness of breath, slightly confused, low oxygen level even with a higher levels of oxygen and now pain in his lower right lung.

We had a big debate.  Do we go to the local ER or do we go straight to Lacrosse.  Kelli came as quick as she could to watch the childcare kiddos.  After the debate, we ended up at the local ER and again, Kalissa was working.

So rather than dwell on the troublesome and worry about what all this means,  I stitched.

They ran some tests…they did some observations…all the typical ER stuff and then..they shipped up off to Lacrosse.  Kramer went by ambulance.  I drove.

It was a beautiful day with a beautiful drive…

So, here I am typing…I’m going back to cross stitching.  In cases like this, it’s what I do best.

As always, I’ll let you know something when I know.

    Oh My Goodness Jo!!! Talk about “when it rains, it pours”. ! I’m so sorry about all this. You are doing an amazing job of coping. I will continue to keep your family in my prayers and thoughts. Wish I were closer so I could help. Thank you for keeping your followers up on the latest. I’m sure that many others feel like me. You feel kinda like family.

  8. Well, that’s no good. I’m sorry they haven’t sussed out a resolution to this problem, I’m grateful whatever it is isn’t hanging about in there silently doing damage without alerting you all to the need for care. Prayers for patience, healing, wisdom and discernment for all involved.

  9. Oh, Jo!! What a terrible roller coaster ride. I’m guessing you’re about ready to stop the ride to get off and relax for a few minutes. I know I would be, if in your situation!!

  10. Prayers continue for you guys. These words just don’t feel like enough. As always, I appreciate the updates!

    Hoping for a speedy recovery from this relapse! Keeping you in my prayers & sending hugs to all of you!

  12. These journeys are just like a roller coaster ride: some days are level, some are happy and uplifting, others are down, down, down. AND it’s all so exhausting. I think you’re handling it beautifully. Prayers for all of you.

  13. Elaine summed it all up. Praying for Roger and all the Kramer Strong Team. We sure do hold you in our hearts as family. Hugs and good thoughts, Gloria

  14. Praying for you and your family! I’m sure Kramer just hates all of this. It is so hard on all of you. Praying for strength and peace.

  15. I’m so sorry for what you are going through. I follow your blog everyday. My daughter, 42 yrs old, has been battling an aggressive breast cancer for the past 20 months. She has a 4 yr old daughter. Quilting seems years ago. I think I understand. Prayers for all of your family.

  16. Elaine and so many others have already spoken my thoughts. We all appreciate your keeping us updated. So many are praying for you and Kramer and all of your family. Please take care of yourself so you will stay healthy. Someone mentioned frequent flyer/driver miles which made me think of mileage. Have you thought to try to keep a record of miles driven for medical needs and expenses related to the appointments/hospital stays that might be tax deductible? Ugh, I don’t enjoy all that stuff, but it might be easier to start (and try to catch it up to date) a notebook now rather than later. On a lighter note, have you ever handstitched four patches? You can have your squares already cut (like a bag of 2” squares) and just stitch them into four patches. Before you know it, you’ll have a bag full of four patch blocks. It will give you an opportunity to play with some fabric….always a stress reducer for me. Drive safe.

    Love & prayers. Glad you have hobbies that help keep you from going crazy..
    I so enjoy your blog & thank you for inspiring me. Hang in there.❤️❤️

  18. I’m saddened by this news and I hope he finds some relief from these new concerns and hopefully gets to spend Memorial Day at home with family. Drive safe and its nice to see sunshine and dry pavement on this trip.

    My heart goes out to you & your family. I recently read the question: “where is God when all this happens to me?” the answer is a picture of a few students taking a test and the teacher sitting with his finger over his lips. The caption states: “the teacher is always silent during the test”. I hope you will realize our Savior is watching over you and your family and will give you the necessary strength to endure whatever trial and tests required at this time. I’m new to your site, but it’s obvious that you have a great many fans and friends who LOVE you and they alone with me are praying for you. Hang in there. God TRULY is mindful of you and your needs.

    Praying continues. Rotten breaks, I’m glad you have something to keep your hands busy while you wait.
