Veronica De La Cruz tweets on from TweetDeck

Hi Friends....absolutely exhausted, but thought I would take a minute to write. #Eric has been very sick as of late, I think I explained (cont'd..) that to you in my last update. There are some sensitive things I can't really discuss, but I want you to know that what's positive out of (cont'd..) all this is #Eric is deeply sedated and is resting. He is still battling pneumonia and the doctors are worried because he has become (cont'd..) resistant to one of the antibiotics they've been using. So he is in major protective isolation, gowns, masks, gloves, lots of hand sanitizer (cont'd..) u name it. He currently has two nurses assigned to him right now. The doctors are working hard to see that he pulls through and I believe (cont'd..) he will. He has a fantastic nurse named Eamon, who I know #Eric loves and I do too. Eamon keeps saying -- we will fight this and win -- (cont'd..) we have no other choice! And I believe he is right. I put my trust in all the doctors and nurses right now. I think they r doing a gr8 job. (cont'd..) But most importantly I put my trust in God. I had a really good, long conversation with my friend Tim Storey tonight. (cont'd..) He quoted a verse from the bible. Luke 12:6. " What is the price of five sparrows? A couple of pennies? (TBC) (cont'd..) Yet God does not forget a single one of them. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don't be afraid; (cont'd..) you are more valuable to him than a whole flock of sparrows". (Luke 12:6) Tim wanted to remind me that God is listening. That he cares . (cont'd..) And he cares about all of us. And doesn't forget about any of us. Which is why you have to have faith. Even when it feels like he may not (cont'd..) be listening or he doesn't hear you. Sister Teresa, the hospital chaplain comes by #Eric's room everyday to pray. We hold hands and we all (cont'd..) pray around #Eric's bed. Her message is always very clear. She always tells #Eric not to give up. We all repeat it. As loud as we can. (cont'd..) Even tho he is sedated, I know he can hear me. So I tell him to stay strong, and brave and keep fighting. He can make it thru this. (cont'd..) I am working my absolute hardest at being strong. Strong for #Eric, strong for myself, Mom. I come into his room everyday and I immediately (cont'd..) start crying, because I hate to see #Eric like this. I don't even recognize him as a person anymore. And I really miss him. I miss talking (cont'd..) to him. I miss laughing and joking. I miss him. But I am hoping this all will pass and he won't ever remember how sick he was (cont'd..) and someday I will be there at his wedding and then playing with his kids and watching him lead a happy, healthy and normal (cont'd..) life. I am looking forward to that day. In the meantime, I've been scolded by more than one person for not taking care of myself. (cont'd..) Tonight Tim reminded me of what they tell you on a plane -- to put your oxygen mask on first before you put it on your child. I've been (cont'd..) battling the flu and am still trying to recover. I have a horrible cough, so tonight I am going to rest and stay in bed and take care of (cont'd..) me. Maybe it sounds weird but Tim was saying - Veronica, you have a lot of people praying for #Eric, perhaps you should ask them to pray (cont'd..) me. Maybe it sounds weird but Tim was saying - Veronica, you have a lot of people praying for #Eric, perhaps you should ask them to pray (cont'd..) for you too. Pray for strength so you can stay strong for #Eric and your Mom. So with that, I am going to try to get some rest, (cont'd..) watch Family Guy, pray to God and think positive and happy thoughts for #Eric. I want to thank you for your love and support (cont'd..) and am always inspired by your prayers and positive energy. Your tweets keep me going. More soon. G'night. xoxo
