Prayer Request and Thanksgiving...


I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. Praying that your day will be filled with family, friends, food, fun and praises for all that we are so fortunate to have. God is good, or no I mean AWESOME and that He continues to bless us all. We are so lucky to live in a country that is free. Free to worship and free to roam as we may! Blessings to all your family and thanksgiving for all that have prayed for our family and our sweet Annabel.

I do have a few request for some special Angels...Yes, this will include Annabel, but two others who have touched our lives in so many ways. My friend Connie, underwent surgery yesterday for a suspicious mass in her colon area. She came through the surgery well but they will not know anything for another 8-10 days. Connie, is mommy to several (5) but to a special Angel, Mallorie Rose. She is on Annabel's sidebar. Praying that she continues to recover from her surgery and that God will give her good results from the reports. Please keep her family in your prayers. Connie has done so much for Annabel and myself. She connects us with many programs that Annabel is entitled to receive. This is her job but she carries it so much farther than her job.

As you have all heard me speak of our hero, Dr. B. They have also discovered a large mass on her ovaries, and she had lab results that came back not good at all. She has just received this news. She cares for so many with the mind and heart of Christ. So many were sickened by this news as she touches so many in our community. Not only as a wonderful physician but as a friend also.

Our third Angel who needs prayers is Annabel. Several things have been going on with Annabel, but yesterday she had hit a brick wall. She had been running a temp, not eating, diarrhea, lethargic. As soon as we brought her in Dr. B looked at me and knowing the hospital was not where anyone wanted to be, she suggested that we just put her in for the day and bolus and just pump her up with IV liquids and antibiotic. It was looking like Annabel had a type of colitis. This is happening regularly as of the last few months. When she gets down she just can get herself back up. We put her in and even though she wasn't where they wanted her to be, we were discharged home last night at 8:00. We are running her pump around the clock and hoping to keep her hydrated. We will spend this day as family and then reevaluate tomorrow. I feel we are doing everything at this point that she was getting in the hospital, except of course the care from her sweet nurses.

Please know that your families are in our prayers and that you all have a very blessed Thanksgiving Day.

Cathy I will keep Annabel in my Thanksgiving prayers. I hope that you are able to avoid a hospital stay. Like you said, we can do most everything at home now that they would be doing at the hospital.

Stay strong, enjoy your Thanksgiving, and GET WELL ANNABEL! (((hugs)))

Cathy:

My heart broke looking at the pictures of Tyler's departure. Reading about Connie and Dr. B. saddened me ever further. I will conintue praying for Connie and add Dr. B also. I also know they are a huge part of your support system, and pray for you also.
