Update

Saturday, March 27, 2010

You've been so supportive with your prayers and encouragement. I wanted to share Heath's progress with you. He had gone from 24 pounds to 19 pounds with his injuries and has gained two and a half pounds back. He is standing and walking a bit more, and that's a good thing. He has seen the pediatric ophthalmologist because he's begun to be cross eyed. They have an appointment scheduled with the surgeon next week. It may require a surgery to get his eyes back straight. He is able to reach for things just fine, so I don't think his vision is terribly affected. Time will tell. Thank you again, so much, my friends. You are appreciated.

This is a photo of Heath from today, riding the Mater toy we gave him for Christmas. Goodness but we love that little one!

    Dear Missy, my son had crossed eyes, and we didn't discover it until he was older the Heath. He had surgery, and after a while, they tuned out fine. Actually, he has to wear glasses, but that's a different issue. Do not worry about surgery - if needed, it will correct the issue. Prayers continue.

    Missy, I thank you for sharing the picture with us. My heart aches for Heath, and all of you. I am so glad that Heath has such a loving family to care for and love him. I know that God is in control, and He is going to bring great victory in this situation. I continue to pray, and to stand in agreement with you all in the total healing of Heath.

Blessings to you all;
Much love~

    Hi Missy, 3 of my children have amblyopia and strabismus (formerly called lazy eye and it looks like cross eyes.) It took my oldest daughter her entire life (almost) but with glasses, eye drops and several unpleasant months of patching her good eye for her to have normal vision without the need for glasses unless she is tired. It is hard to believe what might have been. She started wearing baby bifocals at 18 months old and we had many, many appointments for her--but things worked out well in time and no surgery was needed. My other daughter had the same issue, but the doctor found that she was able to control the issue herself and he gave us evenng eye drops to help train her eyes--she is fine and never needed glasses even. Our youngest son also has this and he has worn regular lenses and had some patching since he was 2. He just turned 12 and his recent appojntment with the eye doctor was wonderful--they are reducing the magnification level of his lenses. I love to share this because there is a lot of progress and hope with this situation. I'll keep Heath and your family inmy prayers as you go through the issues in your lives right now. I'm glad that he is showing improvement.

Thank you. Again.

Friday, March 19, 2010

I am so thankful for the prayers and encouragement and wisdom extended to us in these difficult days. Today my stepdaughter was arrested for the injuries to our grandson, Heath. She confessed and is now in jail. At 21 she is facing a maximum of 40 years in prison. The one bright spot today is that Heath (13 months) was more himself than he's been since this all started. He ate very well, smiled, laughed. He even took a few steps today and had not been able to even stand before today because he was so weak and frail. We are so grateful over his progress and for his dad and grandparents, who are giving him love and safety and who welcome us into Heath's healing process. We are so incredibly sad over our daughter and sad for her. Our son in law is under enormous stress, as well. I ask you to remember all three of them in prayer, please. Only God is able to put shattered lives back together, and He does so with His love. I know He is able to do all that seems impossible and I give Him thanks and praise for that. Again, I thank you, my friends.

    Hi Missy,
I can repeat several of the comments that have already been made...I cannot even begin to imagine what you are feeling. I am glad that you are seeing improvement in the little guy, that is the silver lining in this very dark cloud.

It seems as if you have been "hanging in there," but you need to have God on your side to hold you up through all of this. I will keep you lifted in my prayers and I will keep the rest of your family lifted as well. Be sure to look out for yourself in all of this, I can see how that could easily be forgotten.
Hugs and Prayers, Sylvia

We have 3 children and I had our oldest when I was 30,we got a late start to marriage and children.I honestly can't imagine anyone doing this,it's so sad. I hope with the prayers and her some time to heal and hope that she will get a chance to make Peace and heal emotionally and get's a second chance at life,she is so young.I often wonder if having babies at such a young age is such a good idea,maybe some are mature enough,I am just not sure.I will send my Blessings and prayers your way.Heath is so lucky to have such a loving strong environment you have provided.Hugs,Diana emoticon emoticon emoticon

I hope she does. I am hoping that my daughters get help. I cannot force them to, but both of them need it: the 23yo who attacked the younger, and the 19yo who was attacked. I don't want them in jail, but I want them to get help!

Prayers continue.

    Oh, Missy, I know how this breaks your heart. I once hit my daughter when she wouldn't stop crying. I also knew that this was not acceptable behavior towards her or anyone. I realized this after reading the Bible and getting Christian counseling. I was so riddled with anger inside from my past and towards my deadbeat ex-husband, that I took it out on her when I couldn't cope anymore. I'm so glad that I prayed to God to give my daughters a better home than they had with me and my husband always arguing and him being drunk. He answered my prayers and placed a Bible in my hands. I truly saw things in a different light, but only after I gave up my daughters for adoption and gave my own self to God. My daughter's 21st birthday was the 19th! I can't wait to see her and know her again. She is beautiful and healthy. I praise God for the work He has done!!! You are in my prayers!

    I will never understand why some people physically attack others. I especially do not understand why they pick on defenseless little ones.

Global Wildlife

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

Sunday before last we took three of our kids, our grandson, and my mother-in-law to Global Wildlife in Folsom, Louisiana, about 20 minutes away. Here's their website in case you'd like to see it: globalwildlife.com/

Wherever you go in southeast Louisiana, if you visit long enough with someone, even complete strangers, you will eventually discuss three things: the weather, the Saints, and Katrina. No doubt about it. As we neared the highest elevation on site, which is nothing more than a gentle rise, really, the tour guide told us how hard it was for the staff to evacuate and leave the animals there as Katrina approached. Some of the staff lives nearby and were able to check on the place as soon as the worst of the storm passed. What they found just blew me away. All of the animals, even the mean zebras, were laying on that area of slight elevation, shoulder to shoulder in a long, long line. That's how they hunkered down to wait out the storm together. When they were able to return to the site, they discovered that not one animal was killed during Katrina's wrath. Not only were all the animals safe, but three babies had been born during the hurricane.

What wonderful lessons we are able to learn from wildlife. When the storms of life approach, we are often inclined to run, screaming, crying, complaining, or to isolate, sulking, pouting, fretting alone. Instead, if we join forces with our neighbors and friends, even the ones who can be quite mean, folks we'd ordinarily avoid, and brave the storms, shoulder to shoulder, pooling our strength, our warmth, our courage, then we are more likely to still be standing once the storm has passed.

This is our son, Billy, feeding the cow. She's a pro at how to get that cup of feed!



I'm thinking tasty, low-fat bison burgers!



The camels are nearly bald in summer but still had their cool winter coats when we were there.



Our tour guide had a special spot in her heart for this guy. It looks like the feeling is mutual, too!



There were several species of cattle there.



These little donkeys are the ones that Eeyore and the Shrek Donkey are fashioned after. Bill had a hard time getitng a photo because that mama was protective of her baby. Isn't his baby coat pretty?!



Trying to pet or feed the zebras would end the tour instantly. We were told if the zebras like you, they will bite you. If they don't like you, they will bite you harder! lol They can easily take a person's fingers off with one CHOMP. Since it was actually the anniversary of cutting my little toe off in a treadmill mishap, I DEFINITELY did not want to celebrate the event but losing several fingers. So we left those beautiful zebras alone!!



Because the ground was so soft from our recent maniacal rains the train was unable to go to where the giraffes and lamas were hanging out and the only photo we got of the kangaroos didn't come out so well. Then we have my favorite characters, the two-legged critters! I was only able to hold onto Heath for a moment before he began exploring our train car neighbors and the buckets of feed.



Heath had multiple uses for the feed bucket and our new little pal, Issy, was intrigued! (Already he's a little flirt! lol)





Even Mama was having a hard time holding onto Heath. There was just so much to see and do!



Our youngest, Melanie, 12, was pretty bored with it all. I really think that 12 year old girls are among the most curious of all the critters there!



Dad finally gave up the camera long enough to let one of our train-mates take a shot of our whole crew:



I hope you enjoyed sharing a visit to Global Wildlife with us!

*hugs*

Missy

    Fortunately,many people did extend themselves and their provisions and hunkered down together.I had a very close relative that offered refuge to her neighbors because she had a second floor apartment .Yeah,I remember when hurricane talk centered around Bessie and Camille ,but Katrina took the cake and I'm sure will make the annals of history..What probably won't make the books-the toll Katrina took on the
"survivors" physically,psychologically,socially and emotionally.I put survivors in quote marks because everyone that eventually made it out of New Orleans isn't living nor"living".

Your post is very inspiring .I agree we can learn a lot from animals ,especially compassion and care.I'm always happy to see people that have managed to stay faithful , hopeful ,and keep first things first-God and family.

    This looks like a lot of fun. It's amazing what the animal kingdom can teach us humans sometime. My pastor always says, " Look at cattle, in a field when it's storming outside. They just go about their business eating, like nothing is going on around them. Like they don't have a care in the world. They are just doing their job eating!" He says that's how we need to be in the storms of our lives. It's our job to trust and leave our worries to God! I think it's quite a good analogy. I'm glad you all had a really good day. It's always good to have good quality family time together. Sometimes there's nothing better!

    Thank you so much for sharing! As Linda said, the pics and the blog made me feel just like I was there touring along with you all.

But the tale of the animals hunkering down and survival through Katrina and your summation of the result, meant so much. I just had to copy this sentence to my file of inspirational quotes: " Instead, if we join forces with our neighbors and friends, even the ones who can be quite mean, folks we'd ordinarily avoid, and brave the storms, shoulder to shoulder, pooling our strength, our warmth, our courage, then we are more likely to still be standing once the storm has passed."

You truly are inspirational!! emoticon

A Hospital Visit

Wednesday, March 03, 2010

Thank you, once again, to all of you who prayed for and asked after my husband, Bill, as we went through round three with his kidney stones. His side is sore from the lithotripsy procedure (3,000 hits with sound waves) but he hasn't gone through any of the usual agonies with urinating. That causes us to wonder if any of the two large (of the remaining five) stones in the right kidney was broken up at all. Not expelling any grit can't be a good sign. We'll see when he returns to the doctor April 7th, after his next four week hitch out on his ship. Please remember him in your prayers. This thing ain't over, yet, I'm afraid!

Having not spent a lot of time with doctors or in hospitals, this was all very intimidating at first. By now, though, I'm comfortable with the routine. I pretty much know what to expect for me in it all. Having played this out three times, at two hospitals, I've made some observations and have a few questions.

First of all, when did I, at the age of 50, nearly 51, become unable to determine how much soap I need to wash my hands in the ladies' room??? When I reach under the soap dispenser to pull the lever and get my soap, no lever is there. And foam squirts out. Startling me! Being rather quick with my hands, I managed to see the little blop of foam land on the floor next to the trash can. Being nobody's fool, I caught on fast and managed to get the little blob of foam soap actually ON my hand the second time. Yay, me!

Secondly, who decided to put the sensor on the water faucet in such a place that no matter what you are trying to empty into the sink, the water comes on and soaks it, AND no matter where you hold your hands as you wash, the water won't stay on for more than three seconds before you have to do some kind of hand Macarena dance motions under there to make the water come on again? Is there any way to earn their trust back so that i can be trusted to turn my own water on and off? Can't you just imagine male design engineers breaking out in guffaws as they imagine women juggling coffee mugs, purses, laptop cases, and books as they stand before these 21st Century faucets? I can. I could also imagine fashioning VooDoo dolls that look like them and handing out packs of hairpins to women as they enter! (Okay, that was a joke. I do not advocate VooDoo, curses, or violence against engineers. Honest.)

Lastly, who was it that came to the conclusion that I could not be trusted to know when to flush the potty?!! Am I the only person who finds this insulting? I mean, what if I want to flush BEFORE I get up, which alerts the motion sensor that I'm done. My dear mother-in-law has a certain code of public rest room etiquette and some of it makes a lot of sense. Her philosophy is when you have to make number two, you flush as you go so as to spare the other ladies in the vicinity any unpleasant odors. Makes sense to me. No can do. That would require standing up in the middle of the performance, and we're better off NOT discussing the folly of THAT. So some guy who graduated from toilet design school has figured out that the world is a better place if women are NOT trusted with the all important decision of when to flush the toilet. Again, my intelligence is insulted!

I will give a word of warning to the wise on this matter. Never, under any circumstances, decide to lean down while in one of these robotics ladies' rooms to scratch your ankle while still using the potty. This confuses the motion sensor. The toilet thinks you've gotten up and the WHOOSH from hell occurs, scaring the bijimminies out of you, and it suddenly feels like a vacuum from seven floors below is trying to suck your teeth fillings out through your hiney. It momentarily occurs to you, causing a wee bit of panic, that you will be irrevocably stuck from this monster suction. You find yourself praying you have your cell phone in your pocket and simultaneously wondering who on EARTH you could possibly call to get you out of THIS one if you really ARE stuck!

Not that any of that actually happened. To me. Absolutely not. Really. I just wanted to impart some rhetorical wisdom. *eye roll*

    You are hilarious! I too have wondered about these things, thinking I was probably the dummest person in the world when I can`t figure out how to get soap on my hands, then having figured that out, how do I get water out of the faucet? As for the self flushing toilet...scares a year off my life everytime it happens.
I do love your sense of humor...finding something to smile about, even in the storm. You are precious. emoticon

    Evidently,the engineers don't trust our abilities to use paper towel wisely either.That red eye is also on the front of some dispensers and if you don't wave your hand just right ,I am considering going for training for the ground people that provide directions for pilots ,there won't be any bonanza.By the time you get the paper to come out you've already air dried.

Hope your husband has a thorough and speedy recovery.

I don't think you have had the blessing of seeing the toilet paper electic dispenser. After reaching my purse with my cain, got the kleenex and stood up, then the toilet paper was coming out. Still have not found the secret EYE on this one!
After three hospital stays for kidney stones, I was seen by a doctor with a DO after his name. One that believes in natural cures told me to try Choline Bitartrate Inositol 500mg. Starting with 5 tablet each day with food. After three months I haven't had any problems and that was three years now! I still take one every day and when I stopped I did after a month start having signs of trouble. He could give it a try. I think one bottle goes for like $8. Will be keeping you both in prayer. Will have to keep my eyes open for more fun on your page! Kay

You know how much men dislike having to get close to doctors, much less hospitalizations. Still praying for you & him even though I didn't realize he had gone back to the hospital.

Thanks for posting this blog and letting us know how he's doing PLUS making us shake, rattle & roll with big loud outbursts of laughter! You're the Greatest!!

    Sounds like you're getting into the wife at the hospital routine. Isn't it fun! I happen to like the automatic stuff, but I think Wisconsin (where I learned to love this stuff) has better manufacturers. I've seen the kind of handwashers you're talking about, and I'm not fond of them. I'm with you on the toilets, though. In Penney's today, the darn thing flushed four times before I sat down. Very frustrating.

I hope that your fears about Bill are unfounded, and that lithotripsy worked better than before and not worse. You remain in my prayers.

    LOL Oh Missy! I so agree! And, one other thing I would like to add is who had the brilliant idea to put the toilet paper on contraption that allows only a couple of squares to come out at a time? Yes, I know...they don't want people wasting it. But come on...then, they have the double roll feature, and of course, the roll you can access is empty. Just try to floow the directions of "slide to access spare roll". HUH? When there is nothing to slide, because the spare roll is locked up....grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.I won't even mention narrow stalls with doors that open to the inside, and toilets that sit so low to the floor that a toddler would have to squat way down to get to them.

Anyway, thanks for the laughs! And know that you and Bill are in my continual prayers.

Love you much.

My hubby and my best friend's hubby BOTH lost rings in the WalMart toilets. I agree that it's a nightmare. Public Restrooms everywhere are like this now. I HATE getting a wet hiney from the WHOOSH that occurs if you move even the slightest "wrong" way. GRRR. I'm with you.. give me the good old days. Prayers for Bill and YOU as well being offered up.

Always ask. Never assume!!

Monday, February 22, 2010



His request approved, the CNN News photographer quickly used a cell phone to call the local airport to charter a flight..

He was told a twin-engine plane would be waiting for him at the airport.

Arriving at the airfield, he spotted a plane warming up outside a hanger.

He jumped in with his bag, slammed the door shut, and shouted, 'Let's go'.

The pilot taxied out, swung the plane into the wind and took off.

Once in the air, the photographer instructed the pilot, 'Fly over the valley and make low passes so I can take pictures of the fires on the hillsides.'

'Why?' asked the pilot.

'Because I'm a photographer for CNN' , he responded, 'and I need to get some close up shots.'

The pilot was strangely silent for a moment, finally he stammered, 'So, what you're telling me, is . . . You're NOT my flight instructor?'
