A pretty good day - A special request - Life is unpredictable

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

A co-worker was out today. She had shared that her nephew and his girlfriend had a baby about 3 weeks ago but that he was not doing well. The baby's heart has stopped a number of times and he has remained in the hospital. The parents have both stayed at the hospital continuously and on Saturday they went home for a shower, change of clothes, a hot REAL meal, and a nap. They were woken from their nap by a phone call from the girlfriend's mother - ranting and raving and demanding that they return to the hospital within half an hour or she threatened to call social services and tell them that the parents had abandoned the baby at the hospital. Upset, these young adults got dressed and rushed out to the car to race back to the hospital. They never got there - they were killed in a serious car crash on the way back to their baby. The baby's heart continues to stop and the accident happened on the 1 year anniversary of my co-worker's father's death in a car accident. The family is devastated and completely broken - so prayers would be appreciated.

My dangerous student DID leave and we are keeping his family in our prayers as he went home. My annoying student did NOT leave and was really whiny today. Otherwise the day went pretty well and we had a much more calm classroom.

I had a super tough workout at the pool today - felt energized and ate great.

I have a ton of emails to get through and messages to respond to so I will send all of you the best blessings, sunshine that WARMS you (not like the sunshine we had today that was beautiful but REALLY COLD), and joy, happiness, and successes in every area of your lives. (HUGS) and thanks for the prayers for those who are in such desperate need right now.

    I can't believe that a mother could treat her daughter this way. I also hope she doesn't get custody of the little one if he survives. How would she ever be able to explain WHY his parents are no longer with him.

I will definitely pray for all involved.

Happy that some of your problem are taken care of in your class.

    Oh my, how sad. Think how much more terrible it could be if the baby survives and is placed with this awful woman.

    I can't imagine anything more awful then what happened to those new parents. The family must be overwhelmed with grief. Prayers will be said for all of them. Such a sad story you shared.

Get a good night's sleep as you'll need it for your usually very stressful sounding day at school. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
