Just a Quick Note…

…to say that we are experiencing technical difficulties here at our house.

My computer is dead, and a friend from church is working on her.  We believe she is going to make it, but I'll be losing almost everything.  I am working on a borrowed computer now, thanks to another kind friend! ; )

If you are expecting an email from me, you probably need to send me one instead.  Anything that was pending in my inbox is now gone, and I have lost all my email addresses.


Update on prayer requests:

  • My grandmother is in the hospital, and although she is doing a little better, is still not doing well.
  • My uncle had surgery yesterday.  He was not in a full coma, but was incoherent due to drug usage, apparently.  I have not heard how the surgery went.  I believe they were repairing or removing the spleen.
  • My friend Gail is back in the hospital, and is in severe pain.  They suspect there may be some other medical issue besides the Hodgkins lymphoma.

I appreciate SO much your continued prayers for these dear folks.


Doug is fully recovered from his cold, but Isaac is continuing to cough and run a low-grade fever.  Since it has been continuing for 2 weeks, we will be seeing the pediatrician today.  I'm praying they can pinpoint the cause of the fever, and I am sincerely praying that his lungs are clear.  I have been working very hard to do his treatments and chest PT in hopes that he would not develop pneumonia.


I visited my doctor last week, and am happy to report that I have lost a grand total of 35 pounds!!!  Yay for me!!! : )  We were also able to decrease my thyroid medication, which is a blessing!

I guess that is all I have to report for today.  Thank you for visiting my blog and keeping up with us.  We certainly appreciate your thoughts and prayers for our loved ones.

Blessings to you,

  1. I’m glad that you’re able to get online again. Your friend must really like you. 🙂
    Praying for your special needs and that you get some answers at Isaac’s appointment today.


  2. So good to hear from you. I was wondering what was up. I did see that Doug updated you FB status, but I wanted to know more ;o) Praying for Isaac’s – & your computer’s – full recovery. Those low grade fevers and coughs and such are so hard to pinpoint but make for much concern on the parents part.
    Congratulations on your weight loss!!! GO GIRL!!!!


  3. Hi Alesha,
    Just a quick note. Robbie appreciated your note on their blog. Grace is starting to slowly improve although she is still so very weak that she is unable to even prepare her own food. She is able to get out of bed a little now though, which is a blessing. So we are thankful for the little things. Thanks for your prayers. I am 2 1/2 weeks out from my neck surgery and slowly healing, thanking God that Jim made it home in time (with a Red Cross message) to be there for the surgery.
    That is my update. Glad to hear that things are going well (mostly) for you. Congrats on the weight loss. I know how hard that is to do (esp. at our age-I’ve been working on that myself) Keep up the hard work. I’ll be praying that your computer isn’t completely lost.Robin
