Bella seems to have a new problem and that is that she does not have much appetite and has been getting daily episodes of low blood sugar and also seems unusually tired. She has an appointment tomorrow to see the doctor again. I am hoping the doctor will have wisdom to discover the cause. Her daycare is very concerned about her and so are Catherine and I.

Please let us know of any praises or prayer needs that you may have, so we can pray for each other.


JanetR (REYNJANET)
1/28 - I wanted to ask you again to pray for our son Gene. The infection in his thumb has turned into a deep ligament infection and he won't be able to work for at least a month. He finally got the go ahead from his boss for unemployment but still trying to get it started! This is taking its toil on all of us!
1/5 - Leah just found out that she has to have more internship hours under a specialist to be able to take a test to use her degree in the way she wants to. She has found the perfect one and has taken the first step to getting it. Now she has to submit a resume and an interview. There are a couple others applying. PLEASE pray that it comes through!!!She has spent a lot of time and money achieving her dream. She would be devastated if this stops her.
12/30 - Please add Mitch, Leah's significant other to our list. Also Kevin and I have a special need.


Nellie (NELLIEC)
1/25 - Please pray for my granddaughter Bella. She has a norovirus which has been causing vomiting. The last couple of days she has eaten hardly anything and today she had a low blood sugar episode.


Mel (MEL27P)
1/25 Update - I truly believe that I have witnessed a miracle. From being near death Saturday afternoon, to alert and talking this afternoon makes my faith in God even stronger. I do know it will bring Andy and I even closer, if that is possible.
-- The doctor says there is no sign of pneumonia, Praise the Lord! He said to continue using Mucinex, codeine cough syrup, albuterol inhaler, and Dayquil/Nyquil as needed. Now I will be able to rest peacefully for the weekend.


Barbara (BELLACUDDLES)
1/23 Update - This is a slow recovery.......this fall on my kitchen floor on 12/20. I still feel the pain in my arm/rotator cuff area, despite the exercises, but I guess it is to be as long as or more than 3 months as my orthopedist told me. Please continue prayers for healing and sleeping through the night without waking up from the pain


Carol (RURAL3)
1/9 - My son in law Jason was just diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Please pray that he would take seriously the condition and change his eating and exercise habits. And the end result will be that the whole family will become healthier. (DD Heather and kids: Ashley 11, Alexis 5 and Gabriel 15 months. )


Janet (JANETELIZABETH1)
1/3 - I've managed to twist a ligament in the side of my knee and it's swollen. Am taking meds and icing it but like Barbara it's painful and uncomfortable. I'd appreciate your prayers too.
12/27 Update - The colonscopy showed some pockets of diverticulitis but nothing nasty! PTL that they haven't found any issues for Joseph that need further treatment. He just needs to remember that his stress levels don't help the situation.
-- We do have a glimmer of hope re the house in Spain. The contract with the prospective buyer expired in March 2013 and our legal lady is hoping to work within that time frame! Please God, that would help us so much.


Michelle (ZELLAZM)
1/1 - I have some praises to add: First, the part-time job that I started shortly after arriving has been a huge blessing. I'm working at a children's boutique with a team of super-nice ladies and a super-nice boss. I even got a bonus after having only worked there for about a month! It's also great because working there keeps my mind off all the other things I'm dealing with - I get to play with the toys, too.
-- Also, my financial needs have been provided for so far - I determined to trust God for this aspect of this "project" and he has blessed.
12/18 Update - I'm taking it one day at a time, seem to be behind on some of the deadlines the lawyer has set, but it will all get done in it's time. Grieving over my parents (3 months since Dad' passing) but most family Christmas memories are sweet ones and I take comfort in them. God is good!



CONTINUING NEEDS:
-- Mel's husband
-- Janet - My unsaved family, they badly need salvation and don't even know it!!

Mel, I don't doubt that you have indeed witnessed a miracle! I pray for Andy's continued improvement and your peace as well.

I'm sorry for not updating this list sooner, but I haven't been receiving notifications and was just praying from my last list. Will update shortly!

Don't like hearing about that virus...seems it's around here now! Praying it stays away from anyone I know too and for the Lord to touch Bella and Andy and also Gene. I know how difficult it is to work with a hurting thumb. I hurt mine a long time ago and still treat it with a lot of care.

This virus (es) going around are rough! Praying Nellie for grandaughter and Mel for your husband. I keep praying it stays away from here! The worst thing than active grandkids is sick ones.

I wanted to ask you again to pray for our son Gene. The infection in his thumb has turned into a deep ligament infection and he won't be able to work for at least a month. He finally got the go ahead from his boss for unemployment but still trying to get it started! This is taking its toil on all of us!

Please pray for my grand daughter Bella. She has a norovirus which has been causing vomiting. The last couple of days she has eaten hardly anything and today she had a low blood sugar episode. Her doctor says to give her Gatorade if she isn't eating. (I personally detest Gatorade.)

Andy has been coughing and congested since he came home from the hospital on Monday. I took him in for his follow-up visit this afternoon in a snowstorm. I refused to wait until Monday.

The doctor says there is no sign of pneumonia, Praise the Lord! He said to continue using Mucinex, codeine cough syrup, albuterol inhaler, and Dayquil/Nyquil as needed.

Now I will be able to rest peacefully for the weekend.

Hi all and may God bless all of you!!

This is a slow recovery.......this fall on my kitchen floor on 12/20. I still feel the pain in my arm/rotator cuff area, despite the exercises, but I guess it is to be as it takes time......as long as or more than 3 months as my orthopedist told me. PLEASE continue prayers for healing and sleeping through the night without waking up from the pain. I am keeping you all in prayer as well.

Andy was taken to the hospital Thursday night by ambulance for the worst nosebleed ever. He bled over a pint into the sink in less than 10 minutes. While in the hospital getting tests Friday and Friday night he had 3 more serious bleeds. He was scheduled for surgery Saturday at 11 to look for the cause, but on the way to surgery, the artery burst and he came very close to bleeding to death. They got the artery repaired but in the process, he aspirated blood.

The doctors worked furiously on him all afternoon in the ICU, and got him stable by 5 pm. He was put on a ventilator because he could not breathe by himself. He was kept sedated, and remembers none of it. I was awake 60 hours from 8 am Thursday till 8 pm Saturday. I had been at the hospital with him the whole time (since midnight Thursday) and was not in great shape myself. I went home last night and slept for 12 hours straight, and went back in at 9 this morning.

He was taken off the ventilator this morning and through the day he has continued to improve. His vitals are good, though his blood pressure is erratic, from good to very low. He is talking and aware.

His 3 children drove here to spend his birthday with him today. We had a birthday cake and he was pleased. I stayed with him until he went to sleep tonight at 11 and will have another night in my bed. Tomorrow if he continues to improve, he MAY get taken to a regular room.

I truly believe that I have witnessed a miracle. From being near death Saturday afternoon, to alert and talking this afternoon makes my faith in God even stronger. I do know it will bring Andy and I even closer, if that is possible.

Would appreciate prayers, as they watch for signs of pneumonia from the trauma of breathing in the blood. I will update you when I get a chance.

Hi all...saw my orthopedist yesterday; had x-rays and nothing was broken and I didn't think it was, but you never know about those hairline fractures! Anyway, he told me it could take 3 more months to heal and ga e me some exercises to do, and told me if I wasn;'t 85% better, to call him and he would order and MRI, kwhich would show tears if there are any! It still hurts, but I'm giving it to God for healing and t hank all of you so much for your prayers!

I too am praying for all requests here. God bless all of you!

I'm finally going to the orthopedist tomorrow for my arm and shoulder pain.....it wakes me up and I am not getting quality sleep....this has been going on since 12/20, so it's time to go and get it checked out. I'm hoping I did not tear my rotator cuff and will NOT require surgery!

She has found the perfect one and has taken the first step to getting it. Now she has to submit a resume and an interview. There are a couple others applying. PLEASE pray that it comes through!!!She has spent a lot of time and money achieving her dream. She would be devastated if this stops her.

12/30 - Please add Mitch, Leah's significant other to our list. Also Kevin and I have a special need.


Mel (MEL27P)
1/4 Update - Andy got much worse and I took him to the doctor. He was given an antibiotic, codeine cough syrup, and a steroid inhaler. After 24 hours on the medication he feels remarkably better. He is napping now without coughing or wheezing and I am having a quiet afternoon. Thank you for your prayers.
1/1 - My husband Andy caught a bad cold on the 27th of December. It has really aggravated his asthma, which is why this is so difficult. I am also having trouble getting liquids into him.


Janet (JANETELIZABETH1)
1/3 - I've managed to twist a ligament in the side of my knee and it's swollen. Am taking meds and icing it but like Barbara it's painful and uncomfortable. I'd appreciate your prayers too.
12/27 Update - The colonscopy showed some pockets of diverticulitis but nothing nasty! PTL that they haven't found any issues for Joseph that need further treatment. He just needs to remember that his stress levels don't help the situation.
-- We do have a glimmer of hope re the house in Spain. The contract with the prospective buyer expired in March 2013 and our legal lady is hoping to work within that time frame! Please God, that would help us so much.


Barbara (BELLACUDDLES)
1/2 - I still need your prayers for my right arm and shoulder; I'm icing, but I still am waking up with pain during the night; I also am taking Aleeve and trying not to use it too much; I would love to be able to lift my weights again soon, but this is day 12, so just not using it too much!


Michelle (ZELLAZM)
1/1 - I have some praises to add: First, the part-time job that I started shortly after arriving has been a huge blessing. I'm working at a children's boutique with a team of super-nice ladies and a super-nice boss. I even got a bonus after having only worked there for about a month! It's also great because working there keeps my mind off all the other things I'm dealing with - I get to play with the toys, too.
-- Also, my financial needs have been provided for so far - I determined to trust God for this aspect of this "project" and he has blessed.
12/18 Update - I'm taking it one day at a time, seem to be behind on some of the deadlines the lawyer has set, but it will all get done in it's time. Grieving over my parents (3 months since Dad' passing) but most family Christmas memories are sweet ones and I take comfort in them. God is good!


Carol (RURAL3)
1/1 - My bruises have healed from the outside, just waiting for some to catch up from the inside . Also a praise that the insurance covered $1850 of the $2200 damage to the car.


Nellie (NELLIEC)
12/29 - My youngest son is seriously considering getting a divorce now since there has been no response from his wife to the idea of getting counseling. Our family has advised him to make sure that there is a parenting plan to protect the children from her mood swings.
-- My oldest son Jason has had what he thought was the flu, but it is hanging on and he is wondering if it is pneumonia. He doesn't have any way to pay a doctor to find out, so please pray for his return to health.



CONTINUING NEEDS:
-- Mel's husband
-- Janet - My unsaved family, they badly need salvation and don't even know it!!

Glad Andy is getting some relief. Janet and Barbara take care of your bones! These twist and sprains are hard to get over! Praying for you all!

Leah just found out that she has to have more internship hours under a specialist to be able to take a test to use her degree in the way she wants to. She has found the perfect one and has taken the first step to getting it. Now she has to submit a resume and an interview. There are a couple others applying. PLEASE pray that it comes through!!!She has spent a lot of time and money achieving her dream. She wouldbe devastated if this stops her

Praying Barbara, the Lord can touch that place and make you 100% well again.

I've managed to twist a ligament in the side of my knee and it's swollen. Am taking meds and icing it but like Barbara it's painful and uncomfortable. I'd appreciate your prayers too.

My prayer request remains about the same but I have some praises to add: First, the part-time job that I started shortly after arriving has been a huge blessing. I'm working at a children's boutique with a team of super-nice ladies and a super-nice boss. I even got a bonus after having only worked there for about a month! It's also great because working there keeps my mind off all the other things I'm dealing with - I get to play with the toys, too.

Also, my financial needs have been provided for so far - I determined to trust God for this aspect of this "project" and he has blessed.

Blessings, Michelle

My husband Andy caught a bad cold on the 27th of December. This is day 6, and he is still miserable. Please pray that this cold will run its course quickly and that he will feel better soon. It has really aggravated his asthma, which is why this is so difficult. I am also having trouble getting liquids into him. I told him if he does not drink he would have to go to the ER and be hydrated on an IV.

Thank you.

Mel

12/21 - I fell yesterday on our tile floor in the kitchen and hurt my right shoulder; have been icing/heat and using ibuprophen.
12/3 Praise - Praise that our 2 adult children are coming home for Christmas!!
-- Prayer request that our Catholic RCIA director has a successful mastectomy the end of this month. Her cancer came back after 7 years of remission!


Michelle (ZELLAZM)
12/18 Update - I'm taking it one day at a time, seem to be behind on some of the deadlines the lawyer has set, but it will all get done in it's time. Grieving over my parents (3 months since Dad' passing) but most family Christmas memories are sweet ones and I take comfort in them. God is good!


Carol (RURAL3)
12/5 - I fell off an 8 ft ladder on Monday as I was getting Christmas decorations. Thankfully I have no broken bones. I praise God for his provision for that and for stretching out His arms to cushion my fall. I am very bruised and and achey. Please pray for quick healing.
-- Also, pray for my DH. His ladder is trashed and I did some damage to his 78 MGB parked in the garage. Some scratches, a dent and a small tear in the convertible top. Ouch! Thankfully, though he was more concerned about me. I was home alone.
