A Moment

If I have said it before I have said it a million times. I really don't know what I would do without my precious husband. 

Right now I am taking a break from Parent Orientation work, Baby Girl, The House, Life. Just for a moment. I have sequestered myself in our tiny bedroom and I am quietly listening to some Beatle's music on Pandora and writing. Brent and Mckinley are playing in the den and from the sound of it they are having a pretty good time. I swear she only screams and fusses for someone to hold her when i am around. She is such a nut. he even got up with when Mckinley woke up last night around 1 he took her out in the den to wear her out a little and let me get a little sleep. 

I just need a minute to write and think and thankfully I am lucky that my husband has my tired back.

I haven't had a chance to write about what is going on with Mama, but she is in need of  a lot of prayers right now. We really thought she had this past round beat until she suddenly got very sick. My Dad and Sister ended up having to call 9-1-1 because they could not get her to the hospital by themselves and she has been there since Wednesday night. I honestly am not even sure if that i the right day. My days and nights feel so mixed up right now I honestly had to look back at the calendar to make sure. She is in a lot of pain and it breaks my heart to see her like this. My Sister has been an angel and has been staying the night with her which I know isn't pleasant because no matter how you try sleeping in a hospital room those couches are never comfortable.  Aunt Debbie has also been amazing and spent the first night with Mama and I think she will spend tomorrow morning with her. Daddy has been trying to get a little work done when he can and he spends most of his time with Mama and is there right now. I went up yesterday and spent a few hours with her which wasn't long enough for me. It kills me that inservice and school is starting because I can't be there like I was after rounds 1 and 2. 

So that is where we are right now. My Mama is very sick and needs every prayer we can send to her. Please pray for the doctors to figure out how to get her feeling better. Pray for 2 and not 3 more rounds of chemo. Pray for God to give her strength to get through all of this and feel better. Pray for my family and give us the strength to do everything we can for her. 

O Saint Peregrine, you who have been called "The Wonder-Worker" because of the numerous miracles which you have obtained from God for those who have had recourse to you, who for so many years bore in your own flesh this cancerous disease that destroys the very fiber of our being, and who had recourse to the source of all grace when the power of man could do no more: you who were favored with the vision of Jesus coming down from His Cross to heal your affliction, ask of God and Our Lady the cure of these sick persons whom we entrust to you. Aided in this way by your powerful intercession, we shall sing praise to God for His great goodness and mercy. Amen.

I'm so sorry your mom isn't doing well. Prayers that her doctors will make wise choices to have her back in good health in no time.

Thank you so much ladies! She needs all of the prayers she can get right now! And thank you for praying for her doctors. I tend to pray for them a lot. To have clear minds and steady hands. They really do amazing work and they need us just as much as Mama does.
