This past Sunday night I rushed my wife to Hopkins again. She was in extreme pain. ER doctors took her in immediately and made me leave the building so I slept in the parking garage a couple of hours when they called to say she was being admitted. CT results didn’t look good.
She remains there and they are working to adjust her pain meds to get her home to me. I’m not allowed to see her because of COVID 19. They told me yesterday she only has weeks to live. Praying that she’ll be home with me soon so we can be together.
Thank you for continued prayers and support
Fraternity yours, Brother Shifflett 1528
