1. That we're never alone

The weekend turned to a nightmare. At 8:30 this morning, Steve was hospitalized for a stay that will last several days. When patients are asked to evaluate their pain from one to ten, the medical practitioners have some leeway. They evaluated Steve's pain at a twelve. He is very tired, on a morphine pump, on three antibiotics and an antifungal, on oxygen, and is being hydrated constantly.

Since I know it's not fun to read this blog when I write, we ask that everyone stay hopeful, positive, and pray vigilantly that Steve posts again soon.


  1. Hey, Lucille! I've not yet met you - I can't believe that, as long as I've known Steve! Know that my husband Steve and I are praying, as well are tons of the oilfield people. Steve's a good friend of mine, through accounting and plaques!!

    Hope Steve feels way better soon! Thanks for posting!

  2. Steve and Lucille,
    Know that Lee Bell and I are praying for both of you. You guys are more special than you know. Thank you for keeping us up to date
    Gregg and Lee Bell
