David Burge Updates

David Burge updates his journey with leukemia

A bad night but a good morning

with 5 comments

Yesterday evening Dave was very ill. He had a high temperature and a very painful headache, probably caused by high blast/cancer cells in his blood. I rang the hospital to find out the dose of morphine I could give him to keep him comfortable. I spoke to a wonderful nurse. The thing most worrying Dave was not that he was dying but that he might have to go into hospital to be assessed for pain management. However the doctor on duty was one who had seen Dave earlier in the week and was happy to manage things over the phone. Dave took morphine 2 hourly all evening. This morning he is awake and feeling tired but is pain free :-).

  2. I love Juliette’s comment about the threefold cord. What a beautiful picture.

    He is your rock and refuge… run to Him and pour out your hearts to Him. He knows and understands it all.

    Praying for strength for you. Morphine sounds like a great thing right now too.

  3. hi Mr Burge
    I hope your headaches and your coughing will go away.
    I will pray you for the rest of your life even if it is a very long time. I hope it is a very long time.
    I prayed for my pastor’s nephew. He had a very bad head injury. I prayed to him for about half a year and now he has been healed. I hope that you get healed like he did. If you dont get healed at least we know you will have everlasting life.
    God Bless
    Love James

  4. Praise God you spoke to an understanding nurse leading to you being given instructions from the doctor helping in the administration of medication for the night. Great knowing Dave is feeling a lot better today.
    We shall continue in prayer
