Lord, hear our prayers. I want to send out another update on the preemie twins. Cory, the boy, is doing wonderfully. Ally has always been our concern. I will keep her photo as my avatar for the next few days and hope to gather many prayers. If you could, maybe when you read this you could bump it and keep it going for a few days. Ally is at about 3 lbs. right now. She had a heart murmur and had surgeory on Sunday, January 13th. Things appeared to have gone well. When the nurse was removing her ventilator tube she noticed green on it. She has an infection. The doctors put Ally on a cocktail of antibiotics right away. A mix of 3 antibiotics that cover all the different types of bacteria. After waiting 26 hrs. they were able to identify it as a staff infection. Staff infections are the worst of the bacterial infections. Ally is on two antibiotics directly aimed at the staff infection. This is usually effective. However, grown people are hospitalized or are medicated for a month or longer and sometimes even die with a staff infection. The doctors took some spinal fluid to try and determine whether the "staff" had spread outside the lungs. If it has the situation is more dangerous. They couldn't take enough to quickly determine anything so "they may" have taken what they took in the lab to see if it grows anything. It's not over yet and we do appreciate your prayers. All continued prayers are greatly appreciated. I had originally posted about the twins before their birth, since they were high risk, in the Depression Community. I will now post it there, in my journal, and also in the BD Community. Thank you for your continued support and any new prayers. Thanks so much.

I have a cold, so I am staying at home so I don't get everyone else sick. This isn't what I need right now. This New Years Eve will be my first without my dad (he passed in October). When the clock strikes midnight we will enter a new year. A year where my dad would have turned 80. A year that he will not physically be here.There has been a lot of great things that happened this year, but it is...
I picked up my brother's ashes the other day at the funeral home which is one of the hardest things I've ever had to do and after I was handed the box containing the 4 small urns, the young man had me sign a paper and then told me to have great day. I was stunned and speechless. How about saying something like "I'm so sorry for your loss"?
