Update on Daron

On July 5 I had to take Daron to the VA Medical Center in Battle Creek, MI. His MS got the best of him & he needed a ton more care than I am able to give him. He is currently in a locked down psych ward getting some mental health med adjustments. He is also receiving some PT, OT & therapy while he is there.

I am working on finding him placement into a nursing facility - I'm hoping for the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans. He currently needs around the clock care that I am really not able to give him. Taylor & I call him multiple times a week & try to see him at least once a week. Since it is an hour long drive between our house & Battle Creek & Daron can only handle a 30 min visit with us; it makes for an awfully long trip there & back.

Things to pray for:
--- Strength for Daron.
--- Strength for Taylor.
--- Strength & wisdom for me. I have a lot of decisions to make in the days/weeks ahead regarding Daron's ongoing care. Plus I am now a single mom of a quickly growing young man.
--- Wisdom for the doctors so that they can/will work together with me in order to make the proper decisions for Daron.

We all know that God is a part of this situation & that He is in total control of everything. God already knows how this whole thing is going to end. He knows the choices that have to be made & He will guide everyone involved in making those choices.
