The update for Shari's mom is that she went to the hospital when she was having a hard time breathing. She had a blood clot that went into her heart and caused a heart attack and they put her on drugs to break up the clot and then late last night the clot broke up and part of it went into her lung and a part went into her brain. She had a stroke and lost function in her lung and Christie told me that the doctors say she may be okay but it will be a while before they know anything.

For now Steve and Shari are at the hospital 24/7 with some small breaks and Christie is here with me to take care of the girls and the babies and the ranch. The whole house feels so much different right now with this going on. I'll post an update when there is something to say.

There were some questions:

Just curious but in what website did you find Steve, Shari and Christie?

I was posting on a few sites after Christmas and Christie saw me on one site and then contacted me when I posted on a local Yahoo groups poly site that I was curious about this. She invited me to the house to see things for myself and now here I am.

do the poly families ever let anyone join who isn't religious? just curious.

Yes. Christie joined and she wasn't religious at all. But she is trying and she says she now has faith because she has seen God acting in her life since she came here. I believed in God when I came here but was not really into the Bible or any of that and now I am learning too.

Tomorrow Christie and I are taking the girls to the church meeting and the big deal is that we have a Hispanic couple who are ex-catholics joining us. Pastor Jeff has been meeting with them for a long time and the leadership voted to let them join in April. I don't know anymore about them but Steve says they are a nice couple with two boys and a little girl and that he knows them from his work. This will make our group five poly families and eight couple families.

If you pray I would like to ask you to pray for Shari's mom. Her name is Patty and she is 72.

Thank you.


  1. Megan,

    We are so sorry to hear this news about Shari's Mother. We will be sure to include Shari's Mom, Patty, in our prayers. We will include the rest of your family in our prayers as well. I'm glad Steve and Shari are with Patty at the hospital, they must be exhausted.

    Pulling together during times like these bonds a family even closer, what a blessing it is that your family is so supportive. I'm sure it's a huge relief for Shari and Steve that you and Christie are holding down the ranch. As is knowing that the kids are well cared for at home. That is just one less worry for them. Your blog is a testament to how poly families can work together.

    As I said, we will be sure to include all of you in our prayers, especially Patty.

  2. I'll be sure to put Shari's mom on the podcast prayer list! Sorry about the pregnancy thing - we're kind of in the same boat.
