Nothing earth shattering here, but prayers for our homeschool co-op's registration day would be nice. It is Monday at 11:30 a.m. I am also praying someone would step forward to lead the Music class for the little ones so that I don't have that added activity.

Also, pray for dh's family as they prepare to bring their mom back to her home by the 1st of July. Nobody knows quite how it will go with the dementia, but they need to try and keep her there for at least a week with in-home care.

I have three requests:

1. My niece Sarah has kidney cancer, age 2. They removed the kidney and are awaiting biopsy results.

2. Madeline might have hip dysplasia. We go on 2/7 for another ultrasound. Has been improving since birth. More improvements and they will discharge her. I don't want my daughter in a brace. I do believe God will heal her completely.

3. Jenna...a sparkfriend, is pregnant with a boy. She has suffered the loss (two stillbirths) of her daughters, her Emma at birth. Please pray that this pregnancy is just perfect and she holds that healthy boy on June 24th.

Thanks!

emoticon so much for your prayers and kind words. I had a wonderful telephone conversation with my sister last night. With the help my mom now has, my sister has been able to stay home more and was feeling very peaceful and calm. She listened again to my comment about the inpatient treatment and will ask her dr. at her next appt. My dad and mom both slept well. Thanks again, Heather

Heather~I'm thankful you reached out to us for prayer support. There is power in the prayers of many that come into agreement with each other! You are carrying a huge load right now and know that I will be taking you to Him in prayer often. I think you were right to suggest to your sister to seek inpatient care so we'll just have to pray for that to open up to her somehow. Have your parents considered assisted living? It sounds like it would be perfect for them as they could each receive the treatment/assistance they need physically. Anyway...I can pray so that's what I'll do! HUGS!

Here is some info about the stressors in my life that are causing me grief. I've been having a few positive days but I know that these things are hanging and I need prayer support to keep from being sidetracked.

My mom - after visiting this summer and seeing the situation in person I know that the non Alzheimers diagnosis must be off in some way. She is often confused and her personality is very changed. Week before last she fell twice. Once hard on the concrete of a parking lot. They spent several hours in the ER (they were at the beach) and after many tests was pronounced okay and sent home. The next morning she fell again as they were packing up. She broke her wrist. They continued packing and stopped at the ER by their house after the drive home. She spent a couple nights in the hospital and is now home. This has led to answers to prayer because she is now getting help. My dad has arranged for a home health cleaning aid to come in 4 hours a week. Mom was very resistent to this before.

My dad - is on morphine for pain in his back and hips. He is in pain all the time ( he has degenerating bones - considered to be a result of his military service in Vietnam and also as a chaplain with many (almost 100) parachute jumps. He is on overload emotionallly and physically with care for my mom. He struggles with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as well as other issues. He is the main caregiver for my mom but also a financial support for my sister. God is using the wrist break to allow him support in the care realm.

My sister - is bi-polar. She has been told by her doctor that there are limited options to help her. They've tried everything except the Electro shock treatment and a drug that requires a weekly test to make sure the kidneys are okay. The shock treatment requires three visits a week and someone to take her and stay with her afterwards for 6 weeks. There is no one there that can do this as my dad is fully occupied with my mom. Since she has broken her wrist mom can't be left alone. She is struggling with suicidal issues recently. She told me how she was thinking how nice it would be to just go to sleep and not wake up. I asked her if it would be possible to do the treatment inpatient. It sounds like she is going to try the drug first.

My sister in law - with ALS is declining rapidly. While we were visiting she lost the ability to stand and also to use her thumbs. We found her cups with handles so she can lift by sticking her whole hand in the handle without needing to grip the cup. She is considering a feeding tube as her tongue is starting to feel heavy. Along with her decline is the knowledge that my husband has just as much chance as she as getting this horrible disease. I have been processing all the things I need to have prepared in that event (ie. insurance, re licensing of my teaching certficate, etc). There is a lot more fear in this area than I am willing to admit. (as I am crying almost convulsively as I type).

Financial - our missions support has been dropping and we are operating in the red with our missions budget which affects our personal funds. God provided many needed things while we were in the states and I know he will continue to provide but it is a stressor.

Okay, written down it does seem to be a lot. I tend to be a loner and to handle things on my own. I feel like God is working on that in me. Spark has helped me to verbalize things that I wouldn't otherwise. Thank you to those here who care and will pray. I covet your prayers.

Thanks Heather

Well my dad does turn 75 this year but it doesn't make it any easier when health issues come along. He has had some blood work that indicates he might have prostate cancer. He also has a lump/growth he is getting checked out this morning. Prayers would be welcome today.

Spoke with a dear friend yesterday as she was waiting for her husband to get done with yet another doctor visit. He was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer that has metasticized to the brain right before Thanksgiving. He will be finishing his radiation this week and starting on chemo the next. They have three children, the youngest is 9 and the oldest is 20. If you think of it, lift them in prayer as they deal with this as a family. They are doing their best staying strong and positive, but they also know this is quite serious.

My dad is back in the ICU on a vent. Pray that he will find peace. He has been fighting for so long and he is still not ready to give up, but his lungs are giving out. The nurses thing they will try to remove the vent tomorrow but he is on "borrowed time" that's their phrase.

Keeping your family covered in prayer as us travel.

I have just agreed to give a talk and serve as a table leader for a girls Chrysalis Flight in Feb. I will be writing the talk on Faith this next week, and previewing it on Nov. 13th. Pray that I share the right things from my life that will speak to the girls.

I could definitely feel the presence of prayers for the cousins. This particular boy was actually more pleasant than usual...still had a few issues...but nothing like in the past. Yeah!!!

New request... MIL is having fluid drawn from her lung again on Thursday. It is painful and there is always the chance of a collapsed lung.

It s very sad - funny my niece was here today with her son who is close to my sons age. He tends to be sullen and jealous of my son and you just have to be cardful when they are together.
Hope you have a good trip otherwise Janet.
Christina - it is bitter sweet - just think of it as a whole new chapter in your life. Happy dress shopping!

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Lord - grant me the Serenity to accept the things I can not change, the Courage to change the things I can, and the Wisdom to know the difference.

Christina~I am so happy that you have Mollie in your life! Enjoy that dress shopping!

If you think about it, please pray for the cousins while we are on this trip. The BIL's son especially (he is 10 1/2) is just a miserable child and he picks on the girls all the time so that he gets them so worked up that they end up being the ones in trouble. He is a liar and a sneak and he tries to teach my children to be the same. Thankfully this last trip without me my kids came home saying "he is not a nice person." and "How can he call himself a Christian?" I was able to spend time with Maegann on Christian ways to try and deal with this. We were glad they wouldn't be arriving until Saturday night but found out today they will be arriving late tomorrow so we'll have one extra day with them. Typically we'd be okay but we have made the decision to spend as little time together as possible because of this particular child. Sad isn't it?

Thanks friends for the prayers. Today was sad. But the visit went well...as in no argument or confrontation. Saturday we begin cleaning out his house. In dealing with all the paper work I didn't realize the emotion I was gonna be hit with. Odd how on one side Joe(2nd son) bought the house, he is engaged and beginning his life PURE JOY!... the other side my dad is pitiful, pure sorrow. I am gonna try to just stay focused on the things I can control. and be happy for my kids. On the bright side Mollie ask me to help her begin shopping for her wedding dress this weekend! She truly is the daughter I have always wanted.

Christina, I'll be praying for your visit. Also praying that your heart will be able to agree with your head that it's not personal.

Christina~I will be praying as I totally understand what you're going through. I still am the one my dad throws the garbage on if I visit alone. (It isn't as bad as when he was depressed though.) Who knew this was common....dump on the kid because it is all their fault that I am where I am today. Hmmmm Let us know how it goes!

Today is my dad's birthday. I haven't been to visit him since the incident where I had to wrestle the cigs away from him. So it's been about 3-4 weeks. I can't live with the guilt of ignoring him so today I will visit. I also need to talk about his belongings that are in the house. Pray for me and him. Many of you know he is very difficult to deal with, but I believe God calls me to not walk away from him. So I keep going back for more, each time learning not to take it personal.

Thanks ladies! Another update as of this afternoon. The mass found in her brain is likely something that has been there for a long time and is in between the layers so it is not "in" the brain so an easy removal if she ever chooses that. No need to do anything at this time. The antibiotics are still helping greatly with her memory and energy so maybe if we get her immune system strengthened she'll be better again. She's a tough ol' bird!

My MIL is still not doing that well and SIL took her in again this week for re-testing. They found an infection in her system of some sort and that she still has pneumonia. Another find is some sort of mass in her brain. Naturally SIL's first thought was of the agressive life-taking brain tumor that my mother died from. The hubby reassured her that there are many non-invasive masses that are easily extracted. Anyway...at this point just pray that the medications will work to fight the infection and pneumonia because until that is handled there is no way they can operate on the other.

Amazing answer to prayer. Dad's labs and fever looked good this morning. He is already in surgery. Thanks for prayers. He had planned to fly to Germany to visit us next week. It looks like he may still be able to come.

Please pray for my dad. He has passed a gall bladder stone but he now has pancreatitis. They want to remove the gall bladder but can't until the pancreas settles down. Until then he is in the hospital with no food or drink (only iv) until they can operate. Please pray the fever goes down quickly. I'm having a really hard time being here (germany) when he is there (Washington state).
Thanks so much,
Heather

I hear your "woes" on the "spirited" child in your home! Mine is going to be 6 in August. Hang in there, but will lift you all in my prayers!

Update on MIL.... surgery went very well and even though she had an amazingly good outlook towards losing the eye, she does appear to be showing some emotional "issues" that we can only assume is because of this. We'll know more after this next weekend as Tim's brother and family will be visiting her.

I'm struggling with a very 'spirited', strong-willed 8-year old. Would just appreciate being considerate and respectful to others and not always being so self-centered and selfish (and yes, he is spoiled!)

Prayers of thanksgiving for Christie's job!

My mother-in-law is having her eye removed on Thursday. She is almost blind in her "good" eye and this is one that she's been blind in since childhood. Basically she contracted an infection and the eye is falling apart...probably what started the infection. The kids are planning to draw a cartoon of "Pirate Grandma" and a letter teaching her pirate jargon to help her smile during this time. Isaac says he wants a photo of his pirate grandma because that is just way too cool.

Only God can hide that bad letter for me in those packets. I DID give each principal when interviewed two additional letters that I wanted to be included. So...we shall see. At least I found out. THey were disgruntled (former job) that I left due to Nason being ill, but after 3 years to do that...I even called them (former employee) but they won't answer my emails or calls. God can hide anything! Hoping to hear something today or tomorrow...keep praying a little more....

The final missionary that was being held in Haiti arrived home safely last night. I received an interesting article (interview) that was released now that everyone is home that gives a very different view of what happened over there than the press has offered.

Also...my friend Janette phoned this afternoon to tell me her MIL passed away early today. She'd been failing for a couple of months and was finally received into Jesus' arms. I guess it was quite beautiful as her alzheimers cleared just at the end, she was coherent, she opened her eyes one last time and lifted her hands to heaven right as she died. Anyway..pray for them as they deal with all the arrangements and the hole it leaves for them to not have her on earth any longer.

I can do this. I will do this. Becoming the Christie I want to be.

Focusing on fitness minutes and not the scale! Just me and my fitbit.
