Prayer needed

We have worked hard to manage Katy’s care at home, but tonight we are taking her to the hospital. They will help her balance her electrolytes and start an iron infusion tonight. Katy is so very discouraged. Please pray for her emotional strength. She was supposed to be at our church house tonight helping to host a missionary family for dinner. If you know her heart for missions, you know she feels the sting of HPS tonight in a big way. Qavah is going to be overnight with Dan and Julie. Please pray for her security and that she will trust that we are coming back for her. Thank you, everyone!

    This is hard to read. Not as hard as living it, but it still stings. Katy… I am praying for you tonight and I am weeping with you. This world is not kind, but our Father is. I pray that He guards your heart and your body — I pray for comfort, first spiritual, then physical. He has worked you wonders before — He is faithful to do it again! I love you. Aleah

  2. Jes Says:

    We are praying - I’m so sad to hear that she had to miss out on the missionary family and that she is back in the hospital. In my Tuesday morning Bible study we were asked to memorize the following verse “Therefore we do not lose heart, though outwardly we are wasting away, inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are acheiving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary but what is unseen is eternal.” I know you all know this verse, but it never hurts to hear it again…I’m praising God this evening that you are a family that focuses on the unseen and eternal. We love ya’ll!

    Katy is never far from my thoughts and prayers. We will pray for her tonight and will pray for Qavah to feel safe and peaceful with Dan and Julie. We love you all very much. Sara

    Oh Katy, I’m so sorry to hear this. Please don’t get discouraged - remember - just a speed bump. You’ve been doing so much better.

  5. Doris Harriff Says:

    How discouraging! Yet, I know you are trusting God through everything. Katy is always in my prayers.

    Dear Katy,
    I was afraid something might be up!!! I am so sry this nasty disease is robbing you of a little “normalcy” again. It seems that we get ahead and then take a step or two backwards. I know that God is with you, and hope that you will be back home soon, as Qavah will certainly be missing you too!!! Take care and I will pray for your strength and comfort.
    Love always
    Karen Tillman

    I had good news to report to Katy, and hopefully she’ll feel better soon to visit the following site:

    Katy, I know you expressed some interest in Lindsay. Lindsay finally received her ketamine coma, and came out of it pain free! The site about has journal entries by her mom from the past month they have been in Mexico.

    I pray that the Lord will strengthen you the way He has been strengthening the Spengler’s! He is a God of miracles!

  8. Patricia Hagsten Says:

    Our hearts join yours in prayer and supplication … yet rest in the assurance of The Gret Physicians; love, wisdom and strength when we are weakest … and the knowledge that HE always goes before us through everything.
    It’s 1:15 a.m. and Ib and I just checked into the Super8 for the first h.s. internet access in several days.

    God’s hand is in even this–what looks to be a “setback” will work out for your best and God will bless you in it. I know that it must be so discouraging to be back in the hospital but I know that God has His reasons and you’re in the best of hands with Him. :)
    Love and prayers,
    Jen :)

  10. Beth Says:

    We are praying….seeking God’s abundant blessings and provision for you. Praise God for His unfailing tender compassion and His ever-present help in time of need.

  11. Sandy Says:

    Just read this update. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. I hope the docs are able to get things stabilized very quickly.

  12. Mike Theesfield Says:

    Dear Katy,
    It’s at times like this when you need support the most that I’m the least certain of what I can say. I guess I can only say that I know a little of what you’re going through as I’ve seen my own health deteriorate. In the course of learning to relax and take the stress off my body, I’ve occasionally found a little strength that I thought was gone forever. I know that you’ve bounced back from your own ills, and I’m guessing that you will again. I’m sure that this doesn’t help a lot, but I hope that it does a little.

    David and I are in Charlotte with my Brother and Sister-in-law and are keeping up with you at a distance as you know. Once again we are truly grateful for this blog! Our prayers are ever rising before the Throne on your behalf!! We anxiously await news as to how the transfusion went. Peace be with you!


  14. Donna Wilson Says:

    Katy, I will pray for you while I am out of town. I will be back the night of September 28. I hope and pray that you will be much better when I return. I am bringing Bryanna by in the morning for her lessons–maybe Paul Burton will give me some good news then. Love you, ~Donna~
