the hands of men

Things aren't looking good.

My brother-in-law was making great progress over the last 2 months, but 2 weeks ago he took about 100+ steps back. As of tonight they cannot get his seizing under control and no one has any freaking answers.

No doctor has cared enough to see this through.

Why does no one want to figure this out? Why does no one care?

I love the medical field for all it has accomplished for SO many, but I also hate it for what it has done to my family. I hate that no one really seems to care. How can you allow someone live with a migraine for 10 months with little to no relief?

I don't know what it's going to take, but I fear it's his life....

so I can only remind myself that his life is in God's hands....not the hands of men.

**Updated: It's just after 4am and I just talked to my BIL. He is being admitted to the ICU right now...

oh. awful. It's not the end. We know who wins in the end . . . keep your eyes there; I can't imagine how dark and long this valley has been. It does make us wonder where God and His answers are but remember He loves you and them. All of you.

I posted twice because I'm a dork. But Angie's book - I need to get it to you. She weaves the story of Lazarus through it - "Lord, if you had been here," and then Jesus cries. It's really exquisite how she follows the thread through the book. Once you stop sobbing and wiping the tears and snot off your face you'll notice.
