Update from bedside

IMG_1853Dwight here with an update on Linny from bedside!

First, Linny and I want to thank you for all the love, support and prayers that you have given on her behalf.  I will often tell her about someone else who is praying for her or left a comment and it puts a little smile on her face and in her heart!  Thank  you and please don’t stop!

Our report this morning was not as encouraging as we would like.  The initial diagnosis is “Acute Hepatitis A”  with numbers that are extremely high.  Her numbers are suppose to fall daily and they reported to us today that they have plateaued.   That’s not a good thing so  please pray that they begin to fall off drastically.  With her auto-immune diseases this fight is that much harder for her than for others.   The liver specialist doctor remains very concerned. This is where she needs you to focus your prayers!

They are also testing for other things as well and we continue to wait for those results.

Again thank you faithful friends!

    Praying, without ceasing, in Colorado. My heart sank when I read the news of our sweet Linny being hospitalized. We know our God IS able.
    Many years ago we prayed and fasted around the clock for Karl. We have prayed and fasted for each one of your precious children and family, and continue to do so.

    Our dear Heavenly Father, Please hold your child and faithful servant Linny so closely in your loving arms. Please give her healing, strength, courage, and bring calm to her body and mind. Please bless, guide, and direct Dwight and the children as they are missing their precious Mommy. We trust you in all things, and we give you the glory for everything. We love you and we praise you forever and ever. In Jesus name, Amen

    ❤️ He’s able, He’s able, I know my God is able. I know He is able to carry me through ❤️

  28. Praying from Florida throughout the days and nights! The Lord is our rock, our salvation, and our mighty healer! I’m so sorry you are having to go through this illness, and your family missing you at home. But I KNOW that God is going to use it for His glory, and I can’t wait to read the powerful stories that come from it–and see what you put in your Memorial Box to remember His deliverance!

    Love and Hugs!

  29. I know there will be a memorial box story of the Lord’s deliverence and steadfast faithfulness that will come out of all of this… a story that will encourage many. I have been thinking of Linny on and off all week with urgent concern in my heart… I fervently continue to ask Jesus to bring healing to her liver and throughout her body. I know He is working behind the scenes. I told my husband about what she is going through and he is also praying. You are very loved Linny! Back in 2011 I went into Actute Renal (Kidney) Failure, both my kidneys were suddenly failing at a 90% rate and I was on multiple bags of IV fluids at one time… after a week in the hospital and doctors just not understanding what was causing the problem… my pastor at the time came in and prayed healing over me and my numbers were drastically better from that moment forward and I didn’t need dialysis or anything, my kidneys ended up healing completely… So I know, that I know, that I know The Lord can heal you too. I believe He will heal you and even what the enemy has meant for harm The Lord has meant for good for the saving of many lives. ❤️ Genesis 50:20

  30. I have been praying fervently for you since your husband wrote of your need of a miracle. I am continuing to join in prayer for your quick and complete healing. For yours and your families strength and for the logistics of family to be handled flawlessly since you are away. A big hug from me and many prayers. God be with you all. Isaiah 41:10 KJV

  31. Father God, You are the One Who breathes stars out of Your mouth. You said “Let their be light and there was light.” There is nothing about Lenny’s situation that is a surprise to You because You know the end from the beginning. You are the First and the Last, the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. You created Adam out of dust and out of Adam crested Eve. You created Linny and know every single fiber, atom, cell, and molecule of her body
    You know how each body system works upon and with each other and there is nothing You can’t accomplish. I ask that right now You call to Lenny’s body to rise up and do what You have created it to do. From her laminin to her liver have every single thing line up to work out Your good and perfect will for her. Those beautiful sweet treasures need their mama and they are waiting for a good report. Lord, we have seen You work miracles in Ruby and IN Emma’s life as a missionary with those precious treasures, and even in Dwight as he returned from a mission trip o Africa one year so very sick. Lord, I know that You are there with her on that hospital room and I ask that they do a new test this evening, even if it isn’t scheduled, but just because they have a compulsion to run it and that they will see evidence if her healing in Jesus’ Name, Amen

  32. Oh my goodness, hadn’t read your blog in awhile. I’m praying for you. I had no idea you were in the hospital. If the doctors there can’t do anything for Linny, perhaps you would be willing to stalk to Dr. Robert Morse’s clinic. He has cured thousands of so-called incurable diseases. I know Linny believes in nutrition from her blog. Prayers, hugs and peace to your family.

  33. Dear Linny,
    I had a dream about you and Dwight from Wednesday, May 4th to Thursday, May 5th. I woke up at 3 am on Thursday, and I felt strongly that God is telling me to pray for you and your family safety. I started praying that God would protect you and keep you healthy and safe. I didn’t have any idea why, but I just did. I found out on Thursday morning that it was a National Day of Prayers, well I was thinking it was probably why. However, later that day I read Dwight’s post on your block, and I immediately knew why I was supposed to pray for you in the middle of night. This was my first time feeling so strongly about God’s call to pray for someone else. I’m continue to pray for your complete healing! With love, Gabi.

  34. Isaiah 58:8 “Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear. Your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.” This is the verse that a friend sent to me when I landed in the hospital with severe unexplained pancreatitis two days after I got saved and baptized. Praying this over Linny now and for as long as she is in the hospital. All the love xo

  35. Just got back home and able to have internet access. I am so sorry to hear Linny is ill. I am praying for God’s healing. Hugs to you both.

  36. Just found out about Linny being so sick. Will be praying constantly for her, and the whole family. He is a God of miracles!
