Good morning, Allbodies. I hope you have a lovely Sunday. It is raining here.

Liz, Mackenzie's younger sister has cystic fibrosis also, so she knows that, eventually, she will need a transplant. It isn't something that she needs right away, thank God.
These parents are incredibly strong people. So are the girls.

Baby shower in two and a half hours and here I sit, in my jammies.

Good Morning All

Murph how was the shower? The baby is due in September right? Wow this Christmas will be fun with the new baby's.

My sister came over yesterday and I made a pork roast for dinner. I could tell she wasn't feeling well and just wanted to be around people. I wish she would just sell her house and either move in here or buy a small house closer to us.

Not sure if I told you or not but last year was the last year Jerrod was eligible to play football. His coach offered him a job as a assistant coach for the team. That makes my sister proud that Jerrod's one of the coach's now. I told her we'd go make the drive to go see a few of the games.

Good morning, Allbodies. I hope you're having a happy day.

Liz--Congratulations to Jerrod. I wish your sister felt better. I also wish she would move closer to you.
The baby shower was great. The baby's room is jungle animal theme and the party had the same theme. Ryder is due, C-section, on September 4. He will be born in a hospital about 45 minutes from here, so I don't know whether I will be able to see him when he is born. That is where Ronnie was born and she felt more comfortable keeping the same doctor she had when he was born.

Here I have sat, for 15 hours, no potty break, no food, no sleep, no company, just waiting for someone to talk to me.
Ain't nobody talkin' to me!!!
We're having a really nice thunder/lightning storm right now. Another day when I won't have to get out and water.:)

Good Morning All

Murph here I am, just 15 hours too late. Story of my life.

Soon after I mailed you the picture of baby Bella my cousin emailed me. Bella's one lung collapsed and the hospital is running more tests. They think she may have a infection. We need to pray hard for Bella. After the email I went on the internet and googled babies born only weighting one pound. For the most part none of my search result had encouraging results.

Good Morning to all you wonderful people who post on this thread. I may not post a lot, but I always read. Im going through a rough time financially in my life but I try to stay positive. I have such a wonderful family and couldnt ask for a more beautiful daughter inside and out and my boyfriend is my best friend in the whole world. He works so hard to try and keep our family afloat and if he could he would work day and night. We are sending out resumes everywhere, so please pray for a good job to come his way. This man is amazing, he works when the work is there and even when its 7 days a week/10 hr days, he still comes come and cooks dinner everyday and he's a clean freak, so even if I did the cleaning, he'd probably do it again,lol.
For the past 10 years he's worked for a tree company that only pays under the table, has no health benefits,vacation time or sick time and most of the winter he only works maybe 3 days. He is almost 37 and we have no savings, so he went and got a mining certificate about a year ago. Right after he did a lot of mines were getting shut down. Im not sure but I did see a lot of signs saying Obama was the cause. Right out of HS he started working and never went to college, so his job pool is limited. He deserves this so much, even when we have nothing, he still thinks of helping others who have less. He is the most amazing man I know and I am grateful he also stepped up as the dad for my child when her father fails to do so. I know I am praying hard for him to catch a break and find a good job. Please pray for our family in our desperate time we are having. Thanks

LizW, I will also be praying for baby Bella. It is so hard to watch such an innocent, helpless newborn fight to live. I will also be praying for the babies parents to have the strength to get through this difficult time.

Murph- Mackenzie and her little sister and family are also on my prayer list. As I said to Liz, it is so difficult to see a child experience so much suffering so soon in life.

Zazz- Where ya been? Haven't seen you post in a few days and I noticed you weren't on the leader board today. I hope all is well!

Yoohoo321- Good luck on going for that crown this week! I'm also gonna try, the last few weeks have been hard for me to finish getting all my points. Either I was sick or my wifi was acting crazy,lol. And Im glad to hear your "share" button is working!

Bella is definitely in my prayers. That tiny little angel needs to be totally Covered in prayer. I tried to show my helper the picture and I had accidentally deleted it. If you get time, could you send it to me again? I was surprised that the mother was holding her. I think, most of the time I've known of tiny babies (and none were as small as Bella) the parents were only allowed to put their finger through a hole in the incubator and stroke the baby.

I am so sorry that you and your lovely family are going through this. You are not alone. This is happening to thousands of families all over the country.
Once he applies, he should never give up. Keep calling the company. Some companies throw away the application after they have hired someone, then when they need someone else, they re-advertise. He should call every place he has applied to make sure they have his application on file.
Your family is in my prayers.

Thanks for the prayers Murph. It just brakes my heart cause he is "one of those big tough guys" and I can see the pain in his eyes when I say things like, I can't wait to have cable again or constantly saying, school's starting,we need to figure things out. And I know there's nothing we can do and I know he is trying so hard, and thats what kills me. I do have family that does help, but it gets old asking for $20 bucks here or can you help pay my light bill. My family all but had to drag me on vacation because its embarrassing for me to have my grandmother who's on a limited income pay for my daughter and I to do everything. When he does send in his resumes, they tell him we should be hiring here soon, then he never gets a call. Im not sure if he should just start harassing these companies and calling a few times a week or if that would be to much. And I know so many families are going through this, 5 years ago I had a savings. But as the jobs kept coming in less and less and bills just keep getting higher and higher, and the home we own needs repairs that we are letting go,it just becomes so overwhelming sometimes. I am just gonna keep praying and hope something good comes our way sooner rather than later.

Good morning, Allbodies. I hope you have a really good day.

Hello There.

What did you do today? Anything exciting?
Did you ever read a book about a set of black twin sisters back in the 70's who were from the Barbados' but living in the UK. They wouldn't speak to anyone but each other and when they became teens they set a series of fires in the UK. A judge sentenced them to a mental hospital until age 30. I saw a TV how about them last night, I bet the book would be interesting.
Their names are June and Jennifer Gibbon's.

We just got home from watching Noah at football camp where they scrimmage a bunch of other teams from the county. Geez, some of those kids make Noah look like a little peanut!

Murph I was thinking about what you mentioned about it being odd that they were letting Bella's Mom hold her. It sounds like it might have just been the once they let her be held, I'm not sure but you're right they usually don't let anyone hold the preemies until a certain stage in their development.
My niece had a preemie 8 mos ago who weighed 3.8 pounds. For the first week or so they could only touch the baby with a finger. Even after that they couldn't rub the skin, just gently pat her.

I had an exciting day, sitting at the computer fr 7 hours, hitting the refresh key, waiting patiently for someone to Talk to me.

Well....to tell the truth, I spent most of the day in bed.

My GS and his fiance were here this morning and she was having contractions and feeling miserable. She finally called her doctor's office (in a town about 45 minutes away), and they told her the doctor would call her and would probably send her to the hospital. The doctor called her and told her to go to the hospital here in town. They hooked her up to the monitors and put her on an iv. They kept her most of the day, then let her go home. She said she had gone through with her son, soon to be 4 years old. She says she is going to keep working until the baby comes. Not quite a month to go.

My cousin keeps bringing me Aloe plants and I keep accidentally killing them. The last one she brought, she said, "Don't Kill It." It is looking sort of sick and she is going to be here Thursday. I hope it holds on until after Thursday.

I haven't heard of those twin sisters, but it sounds like an interesting story.

We've had a lot of rain which is great for me because I would not have been able to get out and water.

I am excited about my Ya-yas coming. Can't wait!

Hello everyone, its 3am here and I just cant sleep. This has been a horrible issue of mine for awhile, most likely due to stress. I tried medication and it turned me into a zombie, so thats out of the ?. Also, I have a dentist appt today at 3, I am so anxious when I see the dentist. Even if its just a cleaning, but today I need a cavity filled. I am so not looking forward to this day.

Liz- I am so saddened to hear the baby took a turn for the worse. I am praying for her and sending positive vibes to her family.
Also, just to let you know, my bf never made it past 9th grade. He started working at a very young age due to having a child. That is why he has busted his butt doing labor jobs his whole life. We thought taking the mining class would be perfect, but it seems to have been a wast of money. Im not sure what politics have to do with it but I have heard so many coal miners rallying to open back up the mines. I am praying hard for my family to make it through these desperate times.

Murph- How is your GS's pain from the surgery? I hope he is feeling better.

? Has anyone heard from zazz? Havent seen him around in a few days!
