Wednesday Update...

I've been out of the Blogosphere for a little over a month now. It all began with the birth of my youngest grandgirl, Belle. She is a beauty. But she is deeply in need of prayer.

I mentioned a couple weeks ago that she had been hospitalized for tests. The doctors felt as though they had her on a path of healing with medication and a different formula. She is not responding as well as they had hoped and more testing will be done on the 2nd. At her one month visit yesterday, a couple other issues were discovered...none all too serious, but they do exist and must be addressed.

I'm asking for continued prayer for not only Belle, but for her parents as well. Not to mention her two big sisters. This young family is in a tough place right now. It's difficult enough to have a 3 year old and 2 year old in the house with a newborn, but add medical issues on top makes it all the more challenging. It is a blessing to see the strength J & K pull from prayer. I know they are beyond exhaustion, both physical and emotional.

It's funny to listen to people gripe, in the course of a day... oh the woes of so many, who truly are not suffering at all. Oh my, a Weeping Cherry tree died in their yard or they have some scale on a Rhodo or we did not install their Leylands within 2 weeks and they are furious...screaming like a Banshee. Get a grip. Deal. Your life is damn good. Give thanks. I look at these people and chuckle under my breath. I'd like for them to hold my grandgirl, this tiny little person who is unable to keep food in her body.

Let's all try a little harder to keep life in perspective. What do we have to complain about? What are our hardships? To those of you I know live with genuine troubles, I will remain your prayer warrior. For the rest who have difficulty with the slightest bit of adversity...D-E-A-L!

Thanks for the update. Are they suspecting an allergy to milk? I hope they find the right formula and that she grows out of whatever is bothering her. Acid reflux?

Food for thought....

Continuing to keep her in my thoughts and prayers.

CJ was hospitalized for almost his entire first year and had to be tube fed. It was rough. Still not sure how we managed at such a young age to deal with it all.

I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

I think we have been so spoiled as a country that we are far too quick to whine about things. I'll be praying for Belle and family.

DEAL indeed. Young married couples have it rough trying to get started, but to add this to them is beyond sad and frustrating. It is a heart beaker to see one so young fighting so hard. You and yours, especially little Belle, are still in my prayers. God Bless!

Praying for Belle and her family and you...I have been to a similar place and it is very, very difficult and that is putting it mildly. I don't understand how so many get carried away with useless chatter...it has always amazed me. Stay strong...

Keeping Belle (love the name!) and her family in my prayers. Hang in there, AM.

D-E-A-L, yup, what I'd love to tell 99% of the people I meet in any given day. And one of the reasons I talk so much about my kids and their troubles...hopefully to show another all they have to be thankful for!

I remember the days of having a 3, 2, and newborn...vaguely...through a haze.

hold tight that your girl is in God's hands and the doctors will do all in their power to help her body adjust to life in the big world.

AM, sorry to hear this.
Your Belle and her family are in my prayers.
Dear God bless this precious little girl with excellent health today and always. Dear Lord we place her in your healing hands. Amen

You are so right about people not appreciating what they have. Take a look around.
BIG HUG going out to you and yours.

My prayers go out as well...some of them went out as I was reading your blog...more will go out each time something reminds me to pray which happens quite often during each day.

I have been out of sorts lately as well. Lots and lots on my plate but that is another story. There is NOTHING more heart breaking that a little one in distress. I will pray that God will keep her safely in His Hands. And that the rest of the family will find some peace as well. I am truly sorry you all are going through this. Thank you for the update and please keep them coming.
