KRIS @ JUNK CHIC COTTAGE is asking for PRAYERS for her hubby!

I don't usually do two posts in
one day but this is a special request.
has asked for prayer for 
her handsome husband, Terry.
This is the only picture I could find 
of him on her blog.
He is a fire chief 
somewhere in greater Chicagoland.
(forgive me if I got that wrong Kris)
Anyway, he went into the hospital on Thursday
in terrible pain and they cannot figure out what is wrong with him.
Kris, understandably, is beside herself.
She is a nurse so knows more than most people
and she is WORRIED SICK!
Please pray that they can figure out 
what is wrong with him 
very soon and that there is a quick cure
for whatever it is.
Please pray for some peace of  mind for Kris, too,
AND strength for her to get through this.

I will do an update as soon as I know anything.
Thank you so much.
You are all so awesome!

I might be off a bit in the next
couple of days.
yes-I know I am a bit "off" most of the time
I came home to try to get some
rest and get rid of this
terrible cold.
I will be headed back to help
Mimi with the baby on Sunday.

Praying. As a daughter of a nurse I can totally relate to how she is feeling! Sometimes having more knowledge is not a good thing!

Praying for this lovely couple. For his healing, for her peace. For the doctors to have special skill and anointing as they treat him and wisdom to pinpoint what is going on. I have been in her place. I so understand.

Cozy Little House said...

How frustrating to not know what is wrong! At least as a nurse maybe she will understand when they do come up with something. Take care of yourself now! You're going to wear out.

Prayers for your friend! Feel better....I think I've got the flu. Yuck!

Beth said...

A prayer has been said that God will watch over them both and keep them safe in His care!

Barbara said...

Diana if you are asking for prayers you've got 'em! Will have the entire family praying for Kris's husband Terry. As a nurse myself I know that sometimes having more knowledge then most can make things that much more frustrating. May the doc's figure out what is going on and may their skillfully train brains and hands begin to work on healing Terry!
Thank you for posting Diana and keeping us posted.
And you my friend feel better soon!
XO Barbara

Oh, goodness, Diana! I didn't know about this. Kris and I are buddies, I met her last summer, she lives in the suburbs of Chicago. Oh...I hope they find out what is wrong with Terry. He is such a great, brave man. He's the fire chief of their town. They don't make em any stronger. Please keep us updated and thank you my angel!

XO,

Thank you sweet Diana for this post for prayers for Terry. Tears are rolling down my face as I write this tonight. You are all so wonderful to leave me your special words and healing thoughts and most of all the prayers. I am not a big religious person but I believe in God and the power of prayer and I thank each and everyone of you for this. Terry had a procedure today that went down into his stomach, small instestines and pancreas they think they found the problem. His bile duct was not open and they put a stent in so if this is the culprit then he will be better in a few days. If not they will do more exploratory surgery to see what might be going on. His labs were all normal today and the GI doctor is pretty sure this was the problem and it is now fixed so your prayers are helping. He is a very sick man tonight after the procedure in a lot of pain but they said by tomorrow and even maybe by Sunday he should be doing much better. I am hopeful they found the problem and now that they fixed it he should be back to his good feeling self. Thank you all so much for these prayers. Blog land is like heaven with so many wonderful caring people. I thank each and everyone of you for your prayers. Thank you Diana for doing this for Terry and I. You are the best friend anyone could ask for. Thank you sweet friend.
Love,
Kris

Been reading and thankful that Kris is better. What a pretty couple they are-not to mention he is a hunk of a fireman. Are all firemen that goodlooking. The ones I know are! Hope this is the end of their ordeal!

Ok I am reading these posts and this just made me smile. Thanks so much I will pass this on to my husband. He will be so thrilled to think you think he is a hunk of a fireman. LOL! It will defintely make him feel better. Thank you for your kind words.

Chatty Crone said...

I will be thinking and praying I know that is so hard. Where is the pain. - my husband has severe pain in his leg and I thought It was a blood clot - it ended up being something called a Baker's Cyst. So hopefully it will be something like that. Please let us know. Get well from your cold so you can visit your grandbaby!

JennyD said...

Well, Diana, I am absolutely thrilled to meet you and thank you tons for running by my long neglected blog. That Beth, whatamIgonnadowithher?
Let me say, the oval dishes are adorable, the napkins are going to make me practice, and the dream living room I'm going to go through my monitor and take up squatters' rights. Yes, indeed, right up my alley.

But on to more serious things, I read this entry about your friend's husband and I can only imagine how she must be worrying. I know he is, too! I will join in and most certainly add them both to my prayers tonight and for however long it takes. I'll be cking back soon.

Until then, I'll be following you, too! You are such a sweetheart!

JennyD said...

(I might just scream. No matter what I do to follow, I get nothing but error messages. It's happened all day and night. Not sure what I'm doing wrong but have you in favs for the time being. Made a folder for nothing but blog walks, sheesh)

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

Thanks Diana for letting us know about Kris's husband. I will add him to my prayer list. I am hoping that they will find out what is wrong and he will be well ASAP and praying for der sweet Kris also.
Please keep us informed
Mary

JennyD said...

Hate asking this on this post........Diana, I'm trying on the Google friend Follow button. Is that the problem? I mean I'm signed in by way to Google on my own page so it should work, but it says I'm already signed in but asks that I sign in again, I do that and then it asks if I'm the owner of my own blog (yes always, yes just this time, or no, don't tell) and I've tried every button and always get an error and then not following. I think I'm going to try again tomorrow. I need to fix that other "reply" part you told me about as well. I think the gremlins got into my page and chg'd all my settings, lordy,. Will try again tomorrow :) Thanks xxx

Consider It All Joy said...

I just saw this Diana and also read Kris' update. I pray they did figure out what was wrong and that he is feeling better tonight! As someone who lived with an ill husband for a lengthy period of time, I feel for Kris and pray that she is receiving strength from God and from the many blog land friend who are praying for her hubby!! Thank you for sharing this Diana!! Blessings, Cindy

Sue said...

Thanks for sharing....never good when you hear someone's husband is not only sick but they can't figure out what the problem is...As a nurse the poor thing must be a wreck...Linda Spencer just went through the same thing with her husband Craig if you don't follow her blog....Prayers going out that they find out what's wrong...He is a very handsome man....God bless him..

Leena Milligan Lanteigne said...

Oh no! Kris and Terry are such wonderful, dear people! Prayers coming on strong and yes, please keep us updated as you can. I'm going to write to Kris now. Thanks for the info Diana! Enjoy that lovely baby and feel better soon! Hugs Leena

Dear Kris, I'm praying for your husband and you, I hope they quickly find out what is wrong and can alleviate his pain. Sending love your way.

Kelley said...

Prayers for this entire family, Diana. Bless their hearts. May the medical staff be guided rightly.

*hugs* all around,
Kelley~

Terry Vavra said...

Nana Diana First let me say thnak you for organizing this prayer group. It meant the world to Kris and I and truly, I believe, aided in my recovery. I still am a little weak but am on the road to recovery. I learned while I was in the hospital this time that knowing that people are concerned about you helps tremendously. I also know that my illness is nothing compared to many others and their strength can also be helpful.

I would however wish to log one minor complaint. The bloggers and your friends have caused me to have to enlarge the doorways in our house. (to fir a swollen head) I don't think that I have blushed that many times in my adult life, so thank you for everything. I will of course have the doors done in a weekend.

Prayers are a great gift because they come back to you in much greater quantities then you give and always when you need them. When someone needs a prayer they can count on me and Kris. Thank you from both of us.

Mr. Junk Chic Cottage (Terry)

Sweet Melanie said...

Been praying and so glad he is improving. He is a handsome fella isn't he? And Kris is a true beauty!
