Prayer Request

This is a prayer request for myself friends! As some of you know I have a disease called psoriatic arthritis! It is similar to rheumatoid arthritis in that it is inflamatory and attacks your joints. I have been having a bad few days and my hands are swelling and painful to the point that they are splitting and bleeding. Please include me in your prayers! Thank you all and God bless you!

Update on My Son Todd

Todd was diagnosed with renal failure yesterday at the Doctors. The Doctor does not think that it is permanent, but related to dehydration from which he is also suffering. This they believe is the reason that he is having a breakout of seizures. He goes back to the Doctor is morning and if he is still dehydrated and/or his kidneys are not working, he will hospitalize him again. Please continue your prayers for him and I will let you know more when I do. Thank you all so much, it is so greatly appreciated. God bless!

Prayer Request for My Son

Please add my middle son, Todd, into your prayers. He became really sick yesterday, with a high fever and seizures. He has tested positive for the influenza virus, and has been hospitalized in the MSICU unit on a ventilator. They are doing a spinal tap this morning in order to see if he has meningitis and are going to try to take him off the ventilator today. Please include him in your prayers. He is mentally disabled and an epileptic but otherwise has been very healthy and this is the first time he has had seizures in many years, his temp. was 104.4 at the time of his admission. If you know anyone with the flu, please do not take it lightly. And thank you and God bless you all!

Myshkin Ingawale: A blood test without bleeding

I am not a Doctor and so not an expert by any means, but there is one statement that is made in this video that I must correct. Post partum hemorrhage  is not only caused by anemia, it also occurs sometimes when the placenta comes apart and stays with in the womb. I know this because it happened to me and I nearly died. Any type of post partum hemorrhage can kill within a matter of minutes, the blood loss is that fast.

This is also a great example of a need being solved by someone who sees it, and decides to do something about it. He did not wait for some government agency to tell him this might be needed. He was also able to work with his peers to pursue and develop this lifesaving product.

An Eagle kissed by God – Amazing Story

This is the kind of story you need when it seems like the world is spiraling out of control….
Not many people get a picture of this proud bird snuggled up next to them Freedom and JeffFreedom and I have been together 11 years this summer. She came in as a baby in 1998 with two broken wings. Her left wing doesn’t open all the way even after surgery, it was broken in 4 places.  She’s my baby.When Freedom came in she could not stand and both wings were broken. She was emaciated and covered in lice. We made the decision to give her a chance at life, so I took her to the vets office.  From then on, I was always around her. We had her in a huge dog carrier with the top off,  and it was loaded up with shredded newspaper for her to lay in.  I used to sit and talk to her, urging her to live, to fight; and she would lay there looking at me with those big brown eyes. We also had to tube feed her for weeks.This went on for 4-6 weeks, and by then she still couldn’t stand. It got to the point where the decision was made to euthanize her if she couldn’t stand in a week. You know you don’t want to cross that line between torture and rehab, and it looked like death was winning.  She was going to be put down that Friday, and I was supposed to come in on that Thursday afternoon. I didn’t want to go to the center that Thursday, because I couldn’t bear the thought of her being euthanized; but I went anyway, and when I walked in everyone was grinning from ear to ear. I went immediately back to her cage; and there she was, standing on her own, a big beautiful eagle.  She was ready to live.  I was just about in tears by then.  That was a very good day. We knew she could never fly,  so the director asked me to glove train her. I got her used to the glove, and then to jesses,  and we started doing education programs for schools in western Washington .. We wound up in the newspapers, radio (believe it or not) and some TV.   Miracle Pets even did a show about us.In the spring of 2000, I was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma. I had stage 3, which is not good (one major organ plus everywhere), so I wound up doing 8 months of chemo.  Lost the hair – the whole bit.  I missed a lot of work. When I felt good enough, I would go to Sarvey and take Freedom out for walks. Freedom would also come to me in my dreams and help me fight the cancer. This happened time and time again.Fast forward to November 2000, the day after Thanksgiving.  I went in for my last checkup. I was told that if the cancer was not all gone after 8 rounds of chemo, then my last option was a stem cell transplant. Anyway, they did the tests; and I had to come back Monday for the results.  I went in Monday, and I was told that all the cancer was gone. So the first thing I did was get up to Sarvey and take the big girl out for a walk. It was misty and cold. I went to her flight and jessed her up, and we went out front to the top of the hill.  I hadn’t said a word to Freedom, but somehow she knew. She looked at me and wrapped both her wings around me to where I could feel them pressing in on my back (I was engulfed in eagle wings), and she touched my nose with her beak and stared into my eyes, and we just stood there like that for I don’t know how long …  That was a magic moment.  We have been soul mates ever since she came in.  This is a very special bird.On a side note:  I have had people who were sick come up to us when we are out, and Freedom has some kind of hold on them.  I once had a guy who was terminal come up to us and I let him hold her.  His knees just about buckled and he swore he could feel her power course through his body. I have so many stories like that..I never forget the honor I have of being so close to such a magnificent spirit as Freedom.Hope you  enjoy this!
May God Bless You All.
“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”Isaiah 40:31
