No Sleep

By Scot Pollok on

We are still praying for comfort and sleep, as both still seem elusive. Liza was up every 45 minutes throughout the night, at times so frustrated she just lay in bed crying. Very rough. I think to help recovery, we need a breakthrough in this area. Please pray with us. 

The Hurricane

By Scot Pollok on

As we await the winds and potential rains from the very edge of a tropical storm to our east, Liza enjoyed sitting outside for a couple of hours in the breeze on our front porch. It was a welcome change of scenery from the exact same two views she has most of the time in our living room and...

Haircut, Nap, Wall and Medication Success

By Scot Pollok on

Well we got it. I started calling this morning just minutes after their office opened. A second call a few hours later. An email. A third call. Finally a call back just after 1:00. They were and are very nice, and when we got connected with the right people, they were more than happy to help...

Tuesday Night Update

By Scot Pollok on

Okay, on the medication, we discovered that both our Pharmacy and another major one (which I visited) have the medication, just not in the dosage that is prescribed. I'll get up early and get on the phone and figure it out I'm confident. Hopefully tomorrow morning we will have another pain...

Dense Activity

By Scot Pollok on

For a girl who has only walked inside the house and a few times outside for the past week, Liza got a ton of activity this afternoon. We left at noon for our 1:30PM appointment with Dr. Kim.  We were worried about the drive and road conditions (bumps, driver, etc.), but prepared this time...

Monday

By Scot Pollok on

Thank you all for reading and praying. I've heard from several friends recently who have thanked me for the blog primarily because it informs their prayers. I want you to know that is the main reason for writing it.  In that spirit, I wanted to speak plainly about how Liza is doing now and...

Happy Father's Day

By Scot Pollok on

My sweet wife, in all of her pain and discomfort, wanted today to be special for me. I feel completely fulfilled just being around my family. Although she is in this trial, Liza is still such a blessing and a treasure to me. I adore her and my already high estimation of her is still rising...

Saturday Afternoon

By Scot Pollok on

Liza slept, but again not well. Nights are becoming the time of day that Liza dreads. The pain is both better and the same, seems to me. The intense pain may be better, but there is a nagging pain on her head that is terrible. It may be emanating from the surgery site, again just the insult and...

Perseverance

By Scot Pollok on

I sat with Jesus outside on my porch this morning after Liza got up from bed. She enjoyed her coffee and some heat therapy and I read about Solomon building the temple for the Lord. I was impressed to read again, and see anew, that the highest heaven cannot contain God Almighty, so a man-made...

Friday Morning

By Scot Pollok on

Last night was a futile battle with comfort. That is extremely frustrating. Liza cannot find a position, with multiple kinds of pillows, wedges, heating pads, etc., that is really comfortable. It just stinks having a huge wound on the back of your head reaching down to the top of your neck. She...
