I want to give you an update about Fulton, my son, who is struggling with pneumonia. This last week has been a real yo-yo situation. One day I feel he’s going to be just fine and the next just the opposite. He had a 24 hour period where I thought he was going to die, he was so sick, yet Fulton’s still with us. He’s stable, alert, and doing much better today. Your prayers have made all the difference in the world.
There’s one incident I will always remember. I was standing next to Fulton’s bed, trying to encourage him. But he was slipping in and out of alertness. I decided the best thing I could do for him at that moment was to leave and let him rest. As I got to the door, I turned back and looked at him and said, “I just wish you knew how much I love you!” He didn’t respond. But God spoke to me and said, “And I wish you knew how much I love you!” Here God was once again, using my son to teach me life’s lessons. God says in His word, “I have loved you with an everlasting love. I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.” (Jeremiah 31:3)
In the midst of this very difficult time, God’s love is blasting through with a simple message: I love you and I always will. Perhaps you are like me, having to face hard things. Just remember, God wants us to know how much He loves you and me. Please keep praying for Fulton. We are still believing for a miracle!
More details on Fulton:
He was placed on a ventilator a few days ago and is currently on a low setting. Part of what was causing his pneumonia was food getting into his lungs, so they’ve replaced his feeding tube and put it lower, into his colon. This will decrease the risk of food getting into his lungs. He has struggled with rapid heartbeat and shallow breathing, but the doctors have him in a stable situation for now. Praise the Lord!
