UPDATES IN ANNOTATIONS AND STORY TEXT
Folks, my wife - who has been bravely battling Stage 4 Colo-rectal and liver cancer for nearly two years - has been getting worse and worse over the past few months. I had to call an ambulance last Saturday afternoon due to her increasing refusal to make sense. And then she stopped talking all together. I did not realize it at the time, but she had slipped into a diabetic coma, her heart racing at nearly 200 BPM.
As you watch the video you will notice that I couldn't find her "Do Not Resuscitate" order. Well thank God I couldn't find it because a few minutes after I left the hospital Saturday night DeLynn had a heart attack, and for several minutes she was gone; but because I had left instructions to revive her that is exactly what they did. Her written DNR stated that should her breathing ever stop they were to let her go.
Even though I went against her wishes, ultimately she was glad that I did. Apparently there are several levels of care to withhold, it's not as simple as "pulling the plug." The way that she had her paperwork filled out, the doctors would have stopped working on her as soon as she stopped breathing, which she did a few times. We both agreed that was WAY too soon, so we will be sitting down with a couple of the hospital's social workers to correctly fill out Living Wills for both of us.
Over the past few days she has improved enough to be moved out of ICU into a semi-private room; but even though they control every gram of food and every dram of liquid that she ingests, and measure everything that comes out, they can not get her diabetes under control, nor can they get her heart rate stabilized. I don't imagine that they will let her come home until they get those two things leveled out, probably some time next week.
Seeing as how she is not yet out of the woods, your continued prayers will be much appreciated.
From what I understand, they are finally going to send a couple of home health care nurses to help us out too. Nothing like having a client literally dying because they didn't have a skilled medical practitioner taking care of them to make bureaucrats realize they weren't "at capacity" after all. When people still had a lick of common sense they called that "Closing the barn door after the horses have escaped," and it was something to be avoided.
I'm sorry if I sound bitter, I don't want to be. I don't want to lose my wife is all. She really is my everything.
What a roller coaster of a week it has been dear friends. First, DeLynn dies (and is resuscitated of course) and then I wake up looking like a Walking Dead reject with a bloody crust the size of a quarter in my left ear where blood had pooled, and with my right eye swollen shut as if it had been super glued with blood. I have no idea why I'm leaking blood from my ear and eye like this (I'm fairly certain Ebola has nothing to do with it) but I wish I wasn't. I could do without that bit of worry.
No, I'm not going to go to the hospital. I'm not even done paying for my last hospital tab. I still have my Medicare, but because of the pittance I earn with TTiV I am no longer eligible for Medicaid. 20% of the hospital bill and 100% of any regular office visit must come out of my pocket, and since I haven't been producing many shows lately all I have in my pockets is lint.
Youtube even took the ability to monetize away from my interview with Chaldean Christian spokesman Mark Arabo because the subject was "too sensitive." This has been happening with greater and greater frequency as the channel has grown and more people pay attention to it. Google (which is failing in it's attempt to "Don't Be Evil") is trying to make it economically unfeasible to broadcast Christian content.
Too bad Google doesn't know me the way you know me. They'd realize that their attempts to silence me by withholding money is a futile gesture. This has never been, and never will be, about money.

PLEASE everyone, if you EVER cared a lick about me and my family I need you to do this for me! I'm not ready to lose the love of my life; not tonight, and not ever.
I am more than ready to be prepared to expect a miracle. In order to get a miracle, you must first ask for it. Here goes, "Father you know I am a wicked sinner, and while I don't have it within myself to do anything, Jesus Christ saved the world. He has that kind of Power. Would it be possible for Him to use a little bit of it to spare my wife, a good, decent woman, from the horrors of the illnesses that have ravaged her for over a decade?
Christ also tells us that nothing is beyond our reach, that if we need something all we need do is call on His holy name and it will be granted to us.
Father, Jesus, I want my wife to live. I not only want her to live, I want her to be healthy again. I want the cancer gone, the diabetes kaput, and the diabetic neuropathy to simply melt away. I don't want to be rich, I don't want to be famous, I just want the woman that you gave to me to be my companion, the mother of my children, and the moral compass that You knew I needed, to be healthy again.
Lord, you brought your friend Lazarus back from the dead, even after he'd been in the grave for three days, so I KNOW you can do it again; if you just had the will. Father grant me this and I swear that I will work much harder to save lives and win souls for you. I will forfeit my own life if need be to save just one more soul, with my beloved wife at my side.
In Jesus Holy Name we pray.
