Setting the record....

First let me say this, I have no intentions of whining about what is happening. I’m just explaining what is happening because there are so many out there praying for me and my family, and they want to know what is actually going on. In fact... Through out this entire thing, I have NEVER ONCE asked “WHY ME”. Instead, I’ve been praying my butt off that I, and anyone around me, is learning exactly what I (we) are supposed to be learning.

God doesn’t “punish” us. He forces us to learn what we need to learn. Just like a mom has to let her toddler learn to walk. That toddler will fall many times before being able to do it well on her own. But mom stands there with her arms near that toddler in case she falls, so the fall won’t hurt quite as much. But the fall has to happen, till you learn. Sometimes God has to let us fall down and scrape our knees to learn a lesson. But he is right there to pick us up when we need support.

Carol,
Know that we are praying for you to get through this - sounds like you are on your way - I know sometimes it must be almost impossible to keep a positive attitude, but hang in there!!!!! If there's anything we can do, call me! Brenda

Jilly Bean - prayers are being sent from my angels wings..you know that. You also know..you can call any hour of the day - it may just get me out of having sex! ;)

You call, text or IM me anytime your sweet soul is ready. You once said there was only one word for that particular person or thing that was pissing us off.. I say use it to fight this battle.. whatever it is that comes your way.. you know what it is, use it!

Carol,

We miss your beaming face here greeting us in the mornings! I can't wait to have you back!

Your courage, wisdom and faith will get you through this. The rest of us will do all we can, and that is to pray for you and your family.

Oh Carol, what a mess. I am so sorry and wish I could do something for you, for your family.
I actually had surgery 15 years ago, but thankfully it was nothing. But for that I know how frightening this ordeal is and also how painful. Mentally, physically and emotionally.
My prayers and wishes for healing go out to you my sweet friend and if there is anything I can do for you please let me know.
Hugs, Brigitte
