Hi! I've been kind of quiet lately. Not much time w/3 little ones around. First off, praying for Caleb. I hope the incident doesn't make him afraid of dogs. I was bit a couple of times as a kid and I'm not a big fan of dogs. Well, I was wondering if you all would pray for me. For the past couple of weeks I haven't felt like eating and when I did I could only eat so much before feeling full and/or nauseous. I've lost 5lbs in 2 weeks or less - which would be cool but I'm not trying to lose weight anymore. I did go to the doctors today and it could be GERD/reflux, an ulcer, a hiatal hernia or I suppose worst case stomach cancer(my grampa died from complications of stomach cancer). I am to take Prilosec once a day for a month and go back for a follow up. If symptoms worsen of course I am to go back sooner and they would probably schedule a test to have a scope done. I am obviously not eating enough so I get light headed and feel lethargic. Of course when I do try to eat I just end up feeling sick. We're going to England mid-April so if I had to have surgery for some reason this would all have to be done before then. Oh and I do have a praise. emoticon When I went to the dentist a few weeks ago I knew they were going to tell me I needed more sealants or better yet resins(told me the same thing last year, but don't have the money). So they decide I needed a new bite splint - I wear it at night b/c I grind/clench my teeth so bad I have worn my back teeth down(hence the sealants). These things cost around $300-$500 or more. My dentist said that b/c I had so many problems w/this one they will cover the cost of it. I could've cried when I heard that. I NEED to wear this thing and there was no way I could afford a new one. God is so good & so gracious! emoticon

Trying to get back to my maintenance weight range of 145-150.

Carol, I saw today on Facebook that Beth is heading back to Tuebingen soon. Praying that all goes well with the temporary quarters, with the renovations, and with the relationship with the building owners. And, of course, prayers for the ministry to the young people at the Uni. So needed!


Blessings today,
Michelle

Emotionally Caleb seems to be fine, he just doesn't like the bandages changed. The dog trainer has promised him he can have a puppy when he gets better, so he loves that idea. He doesn't seem to be afraid of dogs but we are watching close.

He goes to the surgeon for a checkup tomorrow. If everything is ok he will have his first surgery next week. Will let you know.

Thanks for the prayers and Janet I'm praying that this is the one!!!

Keep us in your prayers concerning the closing out of Dad and Louise's will.

Praying for little Caleb and your family. What a terrible thing to happen...I read about it happening here too.

Please remember our house in Spain, we have a viewer on Saturday...praying these people are the ones that the Lord has directed.

Please add my grandson Caleb to your prayers. He was bit in the face by a dog last night and it is going to take several plastic surgeries to take care of the wounds.

Praying for all the needs listed, especially the baby Nellie and Carol for your granddaughter. You are right, God will take care of the other matter.

Carole...the map wasn't sold, didn't quite reach the reserve price so well try again at the end of April. They only have that auction every 6 mths. No news on the house.

I am praying for all those needs. Our God is able to do much more than we could ever imagine.

An update: DH's father's estate has been settled. One brother got away with "robbery". But God knows and in the end He will take care of it.

Also, when granddaughter Alexis was in the hospital for her "clean out" they discovered a lump on the side of her neck. She went to her regular doctor to have it looked at and it was still there and they found another one on the other side. She is scheduled to see a specialist on 1/23.

At this point they don't know exactly why the baby is so low weight! They are calling it I.U.G.R. which means Intra Uterine Growth Restriction. When I looked it up, there seemed to be several possible causes. What is bothering me is that both my mother and I tended to have miscarriages easily. This condition is something relatively recently discovered, especially since the use of sonograms became so common. With my children, the only one that had a sonogram was Catherine because during the pregnancy with her, I almost lost her and it is thought that perhaps there was another baby that died in utero and I lost that baby. The sonogram I had during her pregnancy showed that she was healthy, but didn't show much else about what happened.

Nellie, I will be praying for Catherine and her baby. Does the doctor have any explanation as to what is causing the low weight?

Janet, was Joseph ever able to sell the antique map? I still pray for the house in Spain to sell, knowing that God will meet your needs no matter what. The economy is so messed up around the world, it seems.

Please pray for my daughter Catherine and her unborn child. She is about 27 weeks pregnant and her most recent sonogram verified that the baby is only 2% the size that he should be. The doctor is telling her that she will be having weekly sonograms after this and that at any time if the baby seems to be having further problems, they will take the baby by C-section.

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


Janet (REYNJANET)
1/5 - please remember our family in the passing of my step-mom. Also remember me as I face some new challenges


Carole (PIANO*LADY)
1/5 - Praise that my daughter and SIL, Beth and Daniel, are home for a few weeks and we are enjoying our time together so much! Regarding the campus house in Tubingen, it looks like they will get to keep it, but at a much higher rental cost, so additional support will have to be raised.. They have found an economical temporary location during six months' of renovation by the mission organization they rent from. This may not go smoothly, so prayers are still appreciated.


Diana (BUSY4HER)
1/5 - Please continue to pray for my brother and father who are battling colon cancer. My father continues to get the same news his cancer is no better or worse and my brother is still at home, which means he is doing better.
-- Praise! We got our new car yesterday!


Elayne (ANGELBELIEVER)
12/23 - I ask for prayer that my parent's home will sell soon. We keep dropping the price and not even a bite in 16 months. I am helping pay the electric bill now. We have to keep the heat on to at least 60 degrees so the pipes don't freeze. . . . The realtor's contract is up mid Feb and my brother contacted an auctioneer who will have an auction as soon as the contract is over. Like you Janet, we just want this to be over with. Sometimes the auctioneer can do better than a realtor. The house is worth whatever the bidder thinks it's worth. I know Mom and Dad never thought this would happen but it's a tough time now to sell a house. I have given it to God now. I can't worry about it as that would not help or make it sell any faster! This falls in the category of things I cannot change...But God can!


Janet (JANETELIZABETH1)
12/9 - We continue to wait for a buyer for the house in Spain...been 2 yrs now...the Lord must surely have a reason.
-- Joseph sent an antique map to a large London auction house to be sold. It didn't sell but he's been told that a private buyer will be looking at it during this week. Praying it sells this time.



CONTINUING NEEDS:
-- JanetR and her husband need our prayers.
-- Shirley has health problems and needs insurance reinstated
-- Mel's husband, Andy
-- Janet - My unsaved family, they badly need salvation and don't even know it!!
