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.

My dad died several weeks ago. The death was quick, and he was elderly. My challenges are that I have several difficult memories of him. I am unable to share these memories with my loved ones. These were moments-in-time, and not a repetitive pattern. But, these moments-in-time made me distrust him. As a result, I was not close to him. During the funeral, I heard many people talk warmly about my...
My dad died suddenly, unexpectedly, 4 weeks ago. We were super close. Everyone keeps saying to allow myself to "feel" my feelings. That it gets easier with time. I've gone through shock, disbeleif, denial, ANGER (SO MUCH anger) and just complete heartbreak. I returned to work, in a very stressful field 3 weeks ago. Most days I can hold it together, at least in front of people at work. Today I...
