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 become my moms caregiver after she had a stroke on Mother’s Day. I am 59 and married for 32 years. Mom is 77 and dependent on me for a lot of her cares.

My grandma hasn't been diagnosed with anything YET but she recently moved into an independent living community near me (her granddaughter) and I am realizing how terribly confused and negative she is all the time. She has regular hallucinations, doesn't pay her bills, can't remember what day or month it is, and all she does is COMPLAIN about how terrible her life is. Half the time I have no...
