Life happens. Things go good, things go bad, things just go. This past week, though, a lot of the going has been pretty sad. This past Friday my parent's Sunday school teacher's son committed suicide. Obviously, this has been hard for the family and has effected the church family greatly. We have many people grieving in our church for this young life too soon gone, and we all are saddened by the pain this boy must have been going through. I am praying for this family, and all those who have been hurt by this happening.
One of my followers is hurting as well. Apparently someone had anonymously leaving very mean comments on her blog for a while, and it's finally gotten to her. She's around my age (I'm assuming, I really don't know her exact age, I just know she's a teenager.) and has been greatly hurt by this. The whole purpose for her to create her blog was to just talk about life, and let people see a little into her mind. But someone had to ruin that, bring her down, take away something she really enjoyed. What a jerk. I'm praying for her too, that she may heal.
Most of all though, is Jonah. This week he went back to his doctor in Cincinnati for a sleep study and a scope of his throat. In this, his doctor suggested we make an appointment to see a gastro doctor, who will probably suggest a surgery. And this isn't just any surgery, this is a pretty major surgery, that will most likely end with them inserting a feeding tube. That's hard for me to type, let alone take in. Jonah, on a feeding tube, not able to eat for himself.... I just can't fathom it. I'm not only praying for him and this possible procedure, but for my parents in making this decision, and for us siblings to be able to handle yet another time away from home.
It's going to be a long week, I think.
