Our sweet treasure...PLEASE PRAY ... ~

If you're my friend on facebook you know my grandma is very sick and in the hospital in ICU with a broken hip (now repaired), a possible mild stroke, sepsis, and pnuemonia and low blood pressure. It has been a tough 2 days. She is 89 years old and she is one of my most treasured blessings.  I was born on her birthday and I am her baby girl. (yes even at my age) I ask for you to pray for her and for our family. We know that God is in control and she is being cared for by him, and only  him. Her life is in his hands. Just wanted to share a letter with you my daughter Preslee wrote to her. She is actually her name sake... Sarah-Alice Preslee Lyle. Most children don't get the opportunity to know and love their great-grandmothers but my children have and we are so thankful.  It is a gift. She is fighting and hanging on, so we keep praying and believing. We have a hope... that our Wildcat will come back. She is so strong.

She is a fireball and my favorite Comedian...

 Dear Granny,

I love you and hope that you get better as soon as possible and that someday soon we can be together again in your bed reading Billy Graham books with each other and telling each other stories about our days. I am so glad to have you as my grandmother and to have you love me as myself. You are a wonderful person and a great granny. You are my world and I love you for having the heart to love me. God has a plan for me and you and loves us no matter what. He will prosper us and make us new in him. You are so funny and make me smile when I am with you. I will come to see you soon and I will write you another letter soon too. I'll try to stay away from the "meanies" and come see you soon because "saying I love you makes a person's day whole".

Your Dancing Doll,

* This letter is worth more than any amount of money in the world..I consider it PRICELESS and the meaning behind it even more valuable. God has surely BLESSED our lives with my Grandmother, Sara Elizabeth Giles. I pray he isn't needing a perfect angel right now... Pray with us.

God Bless you All,

This was yesterday.. 1-18-12... My sweet heart ..I love you so !

Target Practice

Its been a couple of days since Zeb's 6 month cardiology appointment and I have finally come to terms with it. YES, all in all we got a great report, and I cannot say how THANKFUL we are.  I will admit that even in this thankfulness, I have been sad. Actually 2 days of complete sadness accompanied with nausea, and down right depression.  His gradient went up significantly since his last 2 appointments. This is a red flag, a sounded alarm. I am upset. I am scared. There I said it. 

Dr. L seems completely confident that Zeb is not in any danger now. I trust him with Zeb's life. After all he did save his life. God used this man to save my child's life.  He was very positive that we don't need to stress or rush him back in earlier than 6 months, but he did stress that he couldn't go past 6 months.  I was so frozen in the shock of the moment, I didn't dare ask him what happens if it goes up more. I know what happens, I know the reality. I know what we have  been told time and time again. I don't ever again for as long as I live want to hear those words. I will not even say it on this blog or anywhere out loud, but I know my heart mom friends know the answer.   It is always in the back of my mind but sometimes for a minute you forget.
For now , we wait and we believe and we hope in God and trust him for the miracle we know Zeb already is and we continue to be thankful every day.  This is what we do.

In reflection of the last visit, I couldn't help to think that somehow every time we go for the heart check, its like walking into a target range or target practice. You are going in not knowing if today is the day we are going to just be a target or if today is the day we are going to be hit with the bullet.  Frankly I don't like being in the line of fire or my son being the bullseye. It is not a good feeling. It SUCKS!!! I can say this I would stand in front of any firing range for him any day to keep him from having to face another $#@*(!#* . 

God  in his unconditional love and grace gave me some assurance that day as well, even as we got into the car to drive home, smiling on the outside but riddle with  hurt and fear on the inside, through song... These are the 2 songs that came on the radio:  "While I am Waiting" ( I will Trust You) - John Waller and then immediately  after, " My hope is in You Lord" - Aaron Shust.  I am still amazed every time he speaks to me so boldy. I am thankful...and I am clinging to these words and to HIM.  He is GOOD.

Thursday Morning Car Ride .... and SITE IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION>>>

The Things going on in my car this Thursday Morning:

"Would you rather eat buggers on a sandwich or roaches? Remember Buggers aren't alive!"

"She's touching Me, and breathing on me!! "

Kerrigan reading to Zeb a Halloween book... in January.

Preslee telling me about this boy at school who pretends to hug hisself while making smoochie faces...He thinks he is funny... Really??  Then she says.."You know mom like he is making out?"" .... WHAT!!!! She is 11....I spun my head around like the exorcist lady on that one......

Radio Blaring Justin Beiber or Jason Aldean or whoever my daughter's have hijacked my radio with that given morning....and the sing along which with all the other chatter, I don't see how they do it... and then someone starts singing "All the single ladies".... That would be Z...he is so funny sometime....
