We interupt the normal schedule, for a prayer request.

Hello everyone, it's Elaine from Matters of the Heart. Some of you may know that Julie and I are good friends "in real life."

I know you all have come to love Julie, just about as much as I have. There really is not a better friend, than Julie, folks. I'm not even kidding. I can not even begin to tell you what a wonderful heart she has.

Right now, our Wife.Mom.Nurse needs your prayers. I'm not sure if you have read this post. But anaphylaxis has struck again. Julie had a severe episode yesterday, thankfully at work, that has caused her to be admitted into the ICU. I have talked with her this morning and she is doing well.

Please take a moment and pray that God's perfect plan is unfolding. I know this is a very scary thing for Julie, and I would love if you would all pray for her healing, and that she feels some peace about the situation.

Fire Hubby has everything under control at home, and hopefully, Julie will be released today.

Let me tell you, even though the nurse, is now the patient, she certainly still has her humor about her. She is already planning a great NMM out of the adventures of yesterday.

I know she would love to hear all of your kind words when she gets home.

Julie is doing better this morning and resting in the ICU. We anticipate that she'll be discharged later today after the docs make their rounds.

This continues to be a very concerning and frustrating situation for us, as medications have failed to control/prevent these episodes thus far.

Thanks Elaine for the post...

OH man, Julie!!! I'm so sorry to hear it! I'm praying for you right now because although we're "just" bloggy friends, you're my FRIEND and I feel like I know you!!! Heck, I do KNOW YOU! :-D See, I even know how to make YOUR weird nosed smiley face. Or your old one which makes no sense whatsoever which looks like this ")

Either way, I'm praying for ya Gal! Can't wait to read your Not Me Monday! And I'm so glad to hear that Elaine is your Fairy Blogmother! Whew!

Julie, I know we just "met" not that long ago, but I wanted to tell you that I'll be praying for you. I hope that you are feeling better soon. Good thing you have a hubby who will know what signs to watch for when you get back home and help keep you safe!

I hope you are feeling better soon and able to get your health under control.

Blessings-

Elaine, if you read this please tell Julie she is in my prayers!

Julie! I don't know what I'm going to do with you & Elaine. The old ladies at my church already think I'm adding my imaginary friends to the prayer list!

Miranda said...

WOW! Thanks Elaine for letting us know. Take care Julie!

brian said...

Update, 2:00 p.m. I read some of your comments to Jules, and she was very moved. Seems she's very fond of you all! :)

I'm heading back to the hospital to visit. You can follow my Twitter feed at

Oh goodness Julie! I am so glad that you were at work when this happened. I'm very familiar with severe allergic reactions, as I have had several of them myself. SCARY stuff! Praise God that you are going to be okay! I'll keep you in my prayers that this doesn't happen again. Please let us know how you are feeling when you feel up to posting.
