Prayer request

I received a call from my wife today at about noon, she said she felt like her sides were cramping. By one o'clock she couldn't hardly walk because of the pain. I rushed home (I do mean rush.... If I was a catholic I'd have to go to confession...), picked her up and rushed back to the hospital. Jamie called her midwife at first because she thought it had something to do with her nursing, and the new lil' one ( uterus cramps). The midwife, along with a few other people thought it was her Appendix. I haven't seen her in so much pain... ever. Remember she just had her fifth baby. It was constant and severe and lasted four hours before she got any relief. We got to the ER and had to wait 45 min to get back to the Doc. They ran some test, did a CAT scan, gave her an IV. Kidney stones. She had them once before, about 6 years ago. This time around was a lot worse. Poor girl. She still hasn't passed them and is in horrible pain still. Please pray........
I think she kinda wishes it was her appendix, so they could just take it out and get it over with.

Andrew, I'll be praying for your wife and your family. I've been following your blog for just a couple weeks now. I have 5 kids as well. My wife had a rough year last year, medically. Trip after trip to the ER. Once the doc thought she had appendicitis while pregnant and almost performed an appendectomy. The OB said wait and it turned out to be nothing. Later she lost her eye site, for a month, then got it back. Our faith is in God. Our trials are for our growth. We're all in God's hands. Hang in there!

Sorry I haven't updated anyone, I tried to earlier this week but the comment didn't post. Jamie is doing fine now. Night and day difference from the pain during and the relief after. We thank you for your prayers.
