"PEACE I LEAVE WITH YOU, MY PEACE I GIVE TO YOU, NOT AS THE WORLD GIVES DO I GIVE TO YOU. DO NOT LET YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED OR LET IT BE AFRAID." ~ JOHN 14:27

Sean went peacefully into heaven

I’ve been asked to update you on behalf of Val and the family.

Sean went peacefully into heaven last night, May 17th at around 6:30pm. He was surrounded by his family at home and left us just the way he wanted.

The family feels overwhelmed with the love, support, and prayers from their community and they continue to need your prayers in this difficult time.

We will keep you updated on details on the celebration of life.

Sean is getting weaker

Hello family and friends. I wish I could individually write or call each one of you. This seems to be the best way to communicate. Sean is getting weaker and weaker. Please pray for him and our whole family at this time. God is good and his love is everlasting this we know.

Weeping May last for a night but JOY comes in the morning

We love you all so much and are so thankful to be covered in love, Hope, and prayer. Everyday when I feel weak someone, well actually many of you come along side and say don’t loose hope, get your head up, lift your heart up, let faith arise. This brings each one of our family such peace amidst this nightmare storm.

Sean was drained yesterday and had over 9liters taken out. This brought great relief but we will have to look into getting a tap put in if he is needing this more often. He had no complications so that was a huge blessing.

The plan is for him to come home tomorrow. Please pray for him to have total peace in this area. He is quite concerned about comfort, and being a burden to me ect. He is needing 24hr care and there isn’t much respite relief available.

I on the other hand find the hospital to be very draining and am looking forward to him coming home. Thank you for you messages on how to help or if there’s anything I need. Often my mind has so much on it that I don’t know exactly what I need so have been writing peoples names down that offer and then when I figure out a need let them know. I so appreciate everyone who has messaged and has filled in these needs so lovingly and graciously.

It has been a super long week, we are all drained, Sean is very weak, but we are still hopeful. I still believe that God can heal him at any moment and this is our prayer.

Psalm 30:5 Weeping May last for a night but JOY comes in the morning.

We are still in the hospital

Thank you for sharing, for praying, for coming along side us and saying don’t give up. We are still in the hospital and all the staff have been awe struck by our families perspective on life and the friends that have come to visit. What would normally be a time of tears, sadness, and sorrow, has been a time of fellowship, games, and prayers.

Don’t get me wrong we’ve still had to have hard conversations. We’ve cried lots. But there is peace knowing that God is holding us.

Sean got two blood transfusions and his bleeding has subsided quite a bit. He is staying in the hospital to see if he can get drained tomorrow. Right now is INR is at 1.8 and his body has stopped responding to the vitamin k. The doctor says this is because his liver is in worse condition. Would you pray for his INR to go down. Ideally 1.3 but even 1.5 would be better. I believe God can do this despite what the doctors say.

Sean is having a hard time taking supplements too so pray that he’d be able too.

Pray for his drainage to go well with no complications. We are hoping for Sean to be home by Tuesday.

Thank you for joining with us. Please continue to pray for all the kids too. This weekend has been a hard one.

Romans 12:12 rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer.

An update to the update

An update to the update. This is probably what has been hardest about this season is every single day brings a roller coaster of change.

Yesterday I was vacuuming and Sean called me to his room. He said he felt like he was having a heart attack. We waited a few minutes. I could see his heart racing and that he was sweating. We prayed together and then decided to call 911 as he did not feel like he could get up for me to drive him to the hospital.

The ambulance came and it was the right choice that we called. Of course all this took place right while the kids were getting out of school. And as has been the usual this amazing community showed up. Friends picked up the kids from the bus. Millah went to the neighbours and what could have been a traumatizing experience turned into a fun play date pizza party at their friends. Wow. How thankful I am for this. Watching my kids walk threw this with the army of constant support around them brings a certain lightness to my heart and I can never explain how thankful I am for this.

On arriving at the hospital seans heart was still beating at 185 bpm and his blood pressure was dangerously low. If left his heart would have crashed. They gave him adenosine, which is a drug that essentially restarts his heart. This brought his heart beat down and corrected the problem. They are keeping him in the hospital as his INR is high and he has a bed sore that has opened and will not stop bleeding.

He is feeling much better now that is heart is functioning right. But it sucks to be back here again.

We are not loosing heart and he continues to fight. Still believing that a miracle could take place at anytime. Greater things have been done.

Thank you for your love and prayers.

We’ve been home for a week now

We’ve been home for a week now. Thank you for your prayers. For those of you who have brought meals, got the kids lunches, and just showed up when we need you the most. At this stage it is hard to even comprehend what our needs are. We are so exhausted in this whirlwind of ups and downs and constant back and forth. So when people just show up it means more then you know.

I’ve also had several people share how they’ve been woken up in the middle of the night to pray for Sean. Wow. I always am so encouraged and my faith and eyes are lifted up to the healer from where my help comes from.

Sean’s time in the hospital turned things around a bit. We ended up having a very good doctor. He took time and explained things which is a first. He did say that Sean is getting sicker, and probably at best has a couple of months. This has become a regular thing to hear but is also hard to not give weight to as it has been long. Sean is very thin, very weak, and very tired.

We’ve started speaking life everyday. Thanking God for restoring his liver. Sean is in full swing of taking all his supplements and therapies from Mexico. He continues to eat organic/ veganish food. We are doing everything we can. And that is all we can the rest is up to God.

We know he loves us, is for us, and wants us to be blessed.

Continue to pray.
Pray for seans liver to have a miracle touch from God.
Pray for his pain.

Rev 4:11 You are worthy to receive glory honour and power. For you created all things and by your will they were given existence and life.
