Ponderings of My Predicaments: My Husband’s Crisis

Ponderings of My Predicaments The Great Yellow Jacket Escape

Ponderings of My Predicaments The Great Yellow Jacket Escape

I told you all last month that I would post about what happened with my husband in December.  I’ve found myself with some quiet time this evening, so I thought this would be a good time to do so.

It all began the week between Thanksgiving and December.  My husband was in the backyard preparing things for winter.  He was walking across the back yard and forgot about the raised garden (railroad ties raised up around the garden to raise it above yard level).  He tripped over the wood and fell.  It’s important to note here, that he has a bad case of eczema and had some small sores on his knee, so to it was easy for infection to set in.

He came in hobbling a little bit, cleaned up and didn’t think much more about it.  He started hobbling around even more and eventually couldn’t walk.  I had to call 911 to come and help me pick him up. He thought it was just the one leg and it needed time to heal, so we told the EMT he could go.

The next day (or the day after, one of the two), on December 3rd my husband got down the stairs to the downstairs bathroom (we live in a split level) and he couldn’t get back up the stairs.  In fact, he was on the floor at the bottom of the stairs and couldn’t even stand up.

Doodle Challenge for February 2019

February 2019 Doodle Challenge header

February 2019 Doodle Challenge header

I went without the “Love” theme for the scripture writing challenge, but for those Valentine’s Day die-hard doodlers, I thought I’d keep the theme for our doodles 🙂

This challenge is participated in by the members of my Facebook group, Christian Planner, Journal, and Craft Fellowship and any of you who would like to join us! You can join us in the group or join along on Instagram.

Why do we doodle? Doodling helps improve our drawing skills so we can improve our Bible art journaling pages!

Doodle Challenge for February 2019

I usually print these out on 28 pound white paper (or 32 pound paper is even better) and just stick them right into my planner or journal. The heavier the paper, the less chance it will tear out of your binder or planner by accident and helps resist bleeding or ghosting from your pens or markers.  It helps the page turn easier too.

If you choose to print these out on full-size (letter) sticker paper.  I use these here.  They’re priced great and you can write on them easily. They are good enough quality for my needs.  If you want a top-quality sticker paper look for these or clear ones here. (Though not all pens or markers will write well on the clear ones). If you don’t want to use sticker paper, you can print them on card stock or regular printer paper and glue them down.  Honestly, the sticker paper is the best way, however. Regardless of the type.

Going through a lot of ink printing out planner stickers?  Do like I did and enlist in the HP Instant Ink program! I’ve saved so much money on ink since I did a year and a half ago.  They have different plans, but the one I’m in (the most pages) is that I can print up to 300 pages worth of ink for just over $9.99 per month. You can choose lesser pages for a lower rate, but I do a lot of printing between coupons, planner stickers and other things.  Click on the image here to check it out! –>

Scripture Writing Plan for February 2019

February 2019 scripture writing plan
Thank you so much to all of you who have been asking me about my husband’s recovery. He is still using a walker to get around, but he’s doing so much better. I look forward to filling you all in as soon as I find time 🙂 Here is our scripture writing plan for February, 2019! I thought “love” had probably been overdone for February 🙂 So I chose ,’confidence and self worth’ due to the fact that there have been several conversations about it in my Facebook group of late. I’m so thankful that so many of you are enjoying and spiritually benefiting from these monthly scripture writing plans! I love putting them together for you knowing that you find them useful and uplifting! Use these passages to write out the scriptures and grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! Click on the image below to pull up the full-sized PDF file for printing –>

Scripture Writing Plan for January 2019

January 2019 scripture writing plan header

I must apologize for my lack of content this month.  There’s been a family emergency that’s kept my attention the entire month of December 🙁  God is so good and has gotten us through it though. He is so faithful!

I plan on writing a more detailed post soon, but in a nutshell, my husband took a tumble and hit his knee in our backyard.  Four days later he couldn’t walk or even stand up.  I got him to the Cleveland Clinic ER where his white blood cell count was very high indicating infection.  They did a knee tap (removed a big tube of fluid from his knee) and tested that and it came back indicating sepsis.  He was in the Cleveland Clinic for 2 weeks hallucinating and fighting infection.  Now he’s been in a nursing home for the past week recovering with physical therapy and also having IV antibiotic treatment.  His mind is back to normal after a week and a half of dilusions and just a mess.  He is looking and behaving better now and is slowly taking a few steps with a walker to the bathroom and back to his bed.  I don’t know when he’ll be able to come home. I’m hoping his doctor’s appointment on January 7th will say he can come home.  I’d appreciate your prayers that that will be the case!
