Thank you for coming to our rescue ~ Prayer Is So Powerful

Dearest Friends,

Thank you all so much for being there for us.  Your prayers have made a huge difference.  Peace and kindness has replaced much of the bitterness in my home.  This would never have happened without so many wonderful friends (YOU) praying on my behalf.

It's late and I'm so tired so I'm going to make this one brief.  Nadine (MIL) is continuing to improve.  She's finally resting (maybe a tad over medicated) but it keeps her from trying to leave the bed.  Tuesday they went in a opened up a collapsed artery/vain (I'm terrible with medical stuff, when they are telling me I get the gist of it but don't ask me to repeat or explain it).   This was in her right leg.  As week as it was they were very happy with the outcome and the foot is doing so much better.  They had even told us it was possible that she may have to have her leg amputated.  Needless to say we're pretty worn out between crying and worrying, no time for sleeping  or eating. 

We don't know what tomorrow will bring but thank goodness the worst of this has passed.

Tomorrow afternoon I have an appointment to see my regular physician and go over my scare from last week.  With all that has gone on I wasn't able to go Monday or Tuesday like ER wanted me too.  So hopefully we'll get me rescheduled to see have the stress test and referred back to my cardiologist.  I am amazed at how well I have done since last Friday through all this.  I know in my heart it is because of the prayers you have all placed before our Lord for me.  I've cried forever it seems with no relief or peace in sight.  After Fridays scare maybe Neil was ready to hear my words of "I can't take this stress anymore" as real instead of just rants. 

God has moved in our home.  I feel the presence of his peace and his angels here for the first time in what seems like forever!  Thanks to our Father for the miracles he proviides!!!  I could not have truer friends than all of you.  I just wish I could send each of you a flower bouquet with tea, candles and chocolates.

Goodnite and love to all of you,

Tracy ;)

P.S.  As soon as I get spare time I hope to drop in an visit you all again personally.



  1. Hi Tracy~
    I'm so sorry to hear about your MIL...unfortunately I understand everything you and Neil are going through right now and even though I've been through it, it's still hard to find the right words to say to comfort you. Therefore...I'll lift your family up in prayer and let HIM guide you through it.

    On a lighter note, I received my Charming Heart and I am beyond HAPPY! Tracy, I LOVE it...it is SO me!!!! :)))) The two little girls in the photo are precious and every time I look at them, I'll think of "us" :)))
    The charm you made is too cute and I love the way you presented it. You spent much time and thought in this swap and I'm SO happy that you were my partner! :)
    Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!!!
    I hope to post about it today (if I get some sunlight to photograph it).
    Until then...I hope your days are brighter Tracy...for your whole family too~
