Update & Confession

Well, we had to stay in the hospital again last night...UGH! They wanted to run a sonogram on Neena's legs and heart. About 5 minutes ago we finished those tests and we are now waiting on the Cardiologist to "read" them and tell us the results. We did get a preliminary result from the techs and they said that everything looked "great, " "normal," and that Neena had a "very photogenic heart."

Neena is still doing well and is somewhat frustrated because she feels fine and is ready to be home. We did have to miss our OB/GYN appointment this morning because John C. Lincoln takes the sweet time on everything! Hopefully the results will come soon as will an update.


I do have a confession to make. Usually I'm the one in the hospital bed and Neena is patiently waiting on me. I however am not patient...AT ALL! I do have a reason for that; although, I don't think its a very reasonable reason. You see, Neena is my pregnant girl and to admit her into the hospital means something pretty serious could be happening, and to take two-and-a-half days to run a 5 tests is moving way...WAY too slow!! These people are NOT working their hardest and don't seem too concerned about it...and that's my wife there in the bed with a big "UNKNOWN" as her diagnosis. Get off your rear and get to work...or some heads are gunna role!!!

So the confession is, I have not been nice to really anyone, especially the specialists. So if they had to answer the question, "has Jesus risen from the dead? Is there a gospel revolution taking place started by Jesus with His mission of Love God and love your neighbor?" If they had to answer those questions based on what they saw from me...I'm afraid their answer would be no. OUCH. I've always been an impatient person, especially when it deals with people I love. If you asked me to do something, I'd work my hardest, fastest, and do my very best. Maybe it's foolish of me to expect that out of others, but I do.

I love Neena very much and there's nothing I want more than for her and the baby to be OK, treated well, and be at home!

More updates soon.

Being a parent will also test your patience. Even though you are around teens all the time, your emotional involvement is totally different when it's your own kid.

I know Neena being out of your care was difficult, but keep praying for patience and peace with God's will. God will provide what you need when you need it.

Welcome to parenthood!

Hospital stays are never fun - for anyone involved.

I have experienced the same thing you describe here, and it is very difficult to be patient - especially when it's your dear loved one in the bed and you want answers.

Thanks for your honesty and transparency, in admitting it may not have been your best moment.

I've been there.

They should make a Nooma video on that resurrection thing.
