August 2015

I know it's been a while since my last blog. It's been like a roller coaster ride the past four months. Baby Elizabeth my eighth Great Grand child is four months old now and still in the intensive care unit at Duke Hospital. She has under gone five major surgeries and has another big one coming up this week. They are going to be working on her heart.

This little angel has been a fighter since the day she has been born. We don't know the reason she was sent her from haven but God must have a pretty good reason for letting her be born and giving her the strength and will to survive. Whether it is to teach all of us patience, and endurance, or to just give all of us a sample what we can manage on our plates, or just to give us something to hang on to for a little while, the precious gift of life so we don't abuse it. These are the unanswered questions we'll just have to ponder.

No matter what the reason, I pray that it has taught all of us a very valuable lesson in life. Don't abuse what you have and be thankful for what you do have. Gift thanks everyday to the man upstairs and give the gift of love to all those whom you hold dear to your hearts. We're only here on this earth a short time, whether it's a one day or a hundred years, the time slips by so rapidly we have to take pause to reflect from one day to the next.

I was really frustrated one day at work trying to put out several small tragic evens I wanted to throw up my hands and quit for the day. then all of a sudden an old saying came into my mind and I had to pass it on to one of my clients, which made them laugh. So I leave you with this thought.
"In fields which we walk there are many weeds. Step on the weeds and smell the roses."
I know this may not make sense to you but this is the way I interrupted it:
Squash the problems, slow down to take time to think of the good things and the day will go a lot brighter.

For all of you that read my blog, may God bless and Thank you for your support.

Baby Elizabeth!

Well I must say it's been a long three months, but Baby Elizabeth has really surprised everyone around. She is now up to four pounds and three ounces. Growing every day.

The Gastro Physician has put her on the schedule for surgery on Thursday to hook up her intestines and get rid of the colostomy bag. This will be her fifth surgery. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

She is determine to make it despite all the odds that have been against her. Although she has several surgeries to go, it's take one step forward and don't look back!

Today, Tomorrow, & Yesterday!

It's funny how time seems to fly. It seems like yesterday my eighth Great Grand Baby was born. Each day this little one struggles to breath and to put a smile on her face. Today is a good day, but they had to put her back on oxygen. She was able to go without it for three days and three nights.

Will she ever be able to do with out it? Probably she will never be able to go without for more that three or four days. Will she live a normal life? Play in the yard with other children without over doing it? Probably not.

Will there ever be a change this little person will be able to attend a public school? The answer to that is a no also.

Will she be loved? Positively Yes with her mommy & daddy, grandmother, and great grandmother's whole heart she will be loved to eternity and back.

Baby Elizabeth has strong determination and a possible will to fight. This will get her a long ways and help her with her battles yet to come tomorrow.

Hopefully all the things she is going through now will be a fleeting memory of Yesterday and she'll live to the fullest today, and look forward to tomorrow.

Please keep the Prayers coming. This is a positive, and gives us support and strength to face the unknown of tomorrow.
