Our school’s “Code Blue” is NOT the same as a hospital flat-line code.

Just sayin’.

This would have been really nice information to know before one of our kids’ schools called me at 9:30 this morning, to say they had to call a Code Blue on this kid today!

 

Our school’s code blue simply means “serious medical concern”. It is an all-staff call for medical assistance, not usually a statement of resuscitation needed!

The cardiologist’s decision late yesterday afternoon, to try to cut medication dose in half, was an utter failure.

The good news is, this child was on a 48-hour heart monitor, so whatever the heart did or did not do during this episode, is now recorded, and will become known early next week when the test gets read.

We went to the orthodontist at noon, as that appointment has been rescheduled 3 times, due to medical events, and was now WAY overdue. I only earned a few eye rolls from my child when I insisted on caution at the speed the dentist chair reclined on was straightened back up afterward.

We also tried to go get my temporary orthotic for my toe, across town, only to find the staff left at noon today.

*sigh*

Otherwise, my child is now home for the day, as the school wouldn’t risk the liability of further attendance today, even though they have been feeling fine since half an hour after the incident.
Exciting times.
Yet we will praise Him!

What a lead in to the announcement I was typing up when the phone rang…

I’m launching a new community for my author page TODAY – facebook.com/groups/InDarknessSing – for all kinds of griefs and heartaches, like infertility, pregnancy / infant loss, death and bereavement, brain injury and stroke, chronic illness, marriage or parenting struggles, disappointment, disability, discouragement.

Please come check it out. I’m trying to grow my numbers really rapidly as publisher eyes are on this project. I hope to build a real place of support and encouragement where heavy hearts find hope in Jesus. Please spread the word!

On my PAGE, facebook.com/HarvestingHope, I try to gift you with near-daily inspirational content to uplift and encourage you. It’s my “give-out” page, yet I know it is hard to interact as a community here.

So today I invite my readers to a private GROUP where we can interact together and make friends. Please join me at facebook.com/groups/InDarknessSing and share this link with all your friends looking for a home of hope.

When you join, AND EACH TIME YOU SHARE THE LINK and leave a comment and link to your share, there on the group, I’ll enter you in a give-away! I’m planning to draw a gift winner ever 100 new likes over there. Share however you can: your blog, message boards, social media like Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, even word of mouth (just have new members tag you, so I know to count your word of mouth share that led a new friend there).

Please be a Burden Bearer and help lift one anothers’ loads, as we strive together to sing praises to, and worship, our loving King, the LORD Jesus Christ, in the midst of our deepest struggles, and darkest trials. InDarknessSing is a community where my readers can joyfully fellowship and encourage one another through ongoing interaction.
