Do you believe in miracles? Do you believe in answered prayers? I sure do!! I had a phone call this morning from Melody with an update on Baby Gracie. Well folks the news is wonderful to say the least. The Doctors did 'Gene Testing' on our little Baby Gracie and the results are in. Baby Gracie is a fine healthy baby girl that does not have Smooth Brain Syndrome. Not only that but they did a few more test and she is in the 98 percentile for her age. Just how wonderful is all of that? Just a few short weeks ago a prayer request went out for Baby Gracie and her family and thanks to the many people that honored that request with prayer, God heard us and touched this sweet Baby with His healing love as only He can. If you react to this news as I did, you have tears streaming down your face right now. I take comfort in knowing that all we need to do when the burden becomes too difficult to bear is to offer it up to the Lord and He will take care of it for us. Thank you all for your prayers and if you posted the prayer request on your blog for Baby Gracie, please be sure to spread the good news.
We also have news about Mindy's health issues. The lung specialist told her that he does not believe that she has lung cancer. He did say however that she could very well have something else wrong that can be just as dangerous to her health as cancer. He wouldn't go into any detail until after she has gone through a series of tests. Mindy is a smoker and is trying very hard to quit. She also went to a Diet Dr. in Kentucky for quite some time. The lung specialist told her that between the smoking, diet pills and caffeine she has done considerable damage to her heart. He has ordered an EKG for her before he will scope her lung. He also told her that if she doesn't kick the smoking habit she will be dead by age 31. She will be going back to him the end of the month. So please keep her in your prayers. I know when I quit smoking, I did it with the help of Chantix. Mindy is going to have to quit on her own. I tried that and I failed numerous times. So your continued prayers for Mindy will be so very much appreciated.
Operation 'Git-r-done For Winter' is still in full swing around here. I was going pretty good for a few days and got side tracked with a Doctor's appointment. I also had a bad flare with the fibromyalgia and the Doctor took me off of Byetta and replaced it with Humalog. My blood sugar readings have been yo-yoing between the mid 200s and high 300s, which makes it difficult to function. I have been working with the Doctor trying to adjust the dosage, but haven't hit on a winner yet. I have a date with JD this afternoon to get the screened porch cleaned up today, then I will probably look for a spot to curl up and take a nap.
May your blessings be many.
