The more difficult the circumstances, the stronger one becomes after hurdling it," I am facing some very serious medical problems with several of my children. I have mentioned before that my daughter in NC had a liver transplant. It appeared to be fine until her body started to object to that foreign organ that was installed! She has been in and out of the hospital and in for test over and over. Physically she feels fine though at times tired, but don't we all? Yesterday I got a call from her saying she was told she had 6 months to a year to live! I can't help but tear up as I write this. After telling me she did cheer up and said no one can say for sure, maybe she will have several years, etc. One finds it hard to hear a child may die before you do. I know some of you have been praying for her and I know you will continue to do so.
My younger son is in great pain from nueropathy (never know how to spell that) he and the above daughter both have diabetes, which does not help matters. He had to quit his job as it was lifting very heavy bags of mail, now awaits finding out if he will be approved for disability payments. Paper work is horrendous and doctors are slow to send papers needed. OK, now for my third child. The one who lives here (came to care for the house while I and hubby were in assisted living facility) she had to go in for an ultra sound yesterday and the operator, asked what her cardiologist had told her! She has never gone to one and had no idea about a heart problem. She had some pain in her stomach and chest has bothered her (getting out of breath) That old saying "When it rains, it pours" fits very nicely here.
Now to my Heading... I am taking some time off, I have had a few little unnerving problems too, so a rest is required and I need time to handle all these things that came up so close together. Praise the Lord my oldest son is healthy! I know that God is in charge, in His time things will work out, I of course do not know what His plans are.
I will be reading my mail every day but will not be coming on unless I see a great need. I love you all and will miss seeing all the messages, and not being able to take the time to respond. I will still be doing my best to lose and hope when I come back I can report a loss. Those who have been close to me and anyone else may use my own email "firstname.lastname@example.org if they need prayer etc.
I will miss saying hello to newbies, but will try to find them when I get back.
Wow, I still have not gotten the clothes out of the drier since yest. and other things need to be done. Like to have those things finished before daughter comes home from work.
Sending you all lots of love and hugs, Betty
