Hi Janice, sorry you have had not such good news, but you are in a country where they will do everything for you ie surgery, you are wrapped in prayers and spring is around the corner.  You are in my thoughts and prayers.  Relax if you can and let the Lord be in the driving seat.

Doing the same for you

Janice, know that I will be adding you to my prayer list.  

The doctor office called and we have a follow up appointment Thursday.  We will see what he has to say.

Asking for prayers.

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers for my family.  

We are very thankful for baby Averys' prognosis.  She will probably be close to full term.  The longer she can stay 'in the oven', the better off she is.  

My husband on the other hand, refused for over 2 years to go to the doctor.  Thus his prognosis is not so encouraging.  We think he is in stage 4 and not much can be done.  The test results were posted on his chart that we have internet access, and though we are not trained in the medical field, we could see that things are not good.  I expect a call from the office today to set up an appointment to hear what the doctors say. 

Changing the subject.  I made a 'picture' for Ryan when he became an assistant principal several years ago.  He called me the other day and said that someone wants one just like it.  Thing is, I have not been able to find the fabric panel anywhere.  Here is a picture of it.

I am almost positive I bought this at the now closed Hancocks Fabrics. 

If anyone runs across this, please contact me.  The person is offering to pay me for this. 

Thanks again for the prayers and positive thoughts sent out way.  God is in control.

Instead of my blog I will post here.

Some know of the challenges that we are facing the last several months. First, we found out that our next granddaughter has a heart defect called Tetralogy of Fallot. A congenital heart defect consisting of 4 problems that result in not enough blood flow to the lungs and a hole in the heart. Baby Avery Rose was looking at possibly a surgery right out of being born. Prayers are working, at this time mom and dad will be able to bring Avery home 3 to 5 days after birth. No post delivery surgery needed. She will need surgery a few months down the rode. But she is growing and developing well in all over areas. PTL.

On top of that, my husband has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. We are waiting for the results to come back to see what the next steps/s are.

To keep myself 'sane', I have been making quilts for baby Avery and planning a new one for my husband. Put on my headphones, Christian music flowing through, and cutting, sewing, pressing,.... Pictures to come soon.

Please pray for the family. God's will be done!
