Thursday – I'm Back!

“For we are … created in Christ Jesus to do good works,

which God prepared in advance for us to do.”

~Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)~

Lightning took out my phone and my computer satellite last week.  I changed servers and am back in operation.  Thanks to all of you who checked with me because you missed The Prayer Link.  David said I had computer withdrawal.  I did!  I think that was the longest I have been without a computer since I first go one.  I hope not to repeat that!


Mrs. Annie Bell Harrell is home from the hospital and doing a little better.  Please continue to pray for “Miss” Annie Bell and Mr. Phillip.

Mrs. Shirley Frazier has been “down” with a back problem for three weeks.  She is not well yet.  Pray for her to feel better soon.  Her doctor’s appointment is still a month away.

Mrs. Mary Womack will be having surgery soon, but first has to see her surgeon. Pray for her as she prepares for surgery.


Mrs. Mary Young Miller survived a collision that could have been much worse. Thank God for His watchcare over her.


Jadon’s Story

Has it really been a week?

Posted: 14 May 2011 04:52 PM PDT

Sorry I haven’t updated you. I have been busy helping my daddy build a fence this week…LOL I had a really good week. My seizures are staying around 70 a day. We haven’t noticed a huge increase since we weaned steriods. Hey we are still under 100. We were fighting 200 a one time. We are getting there. We stopped the banzel wean at 300 mg. We were trying to get down to 200 but my seizures increased when we lowered the dose to 200mg. We now know that 300mg is the dose I need to be on. We increased my lamictal yesterday. Of course I’m still not on enough of this to know if it is going to work. So far there has been no change, but we were expecting that. I started sneezing a lot today and my nose is running. I really hope I’m not getting sick again. Please pray that this cold will go away soon. We have an appointment with my neurologist on the 24 so I will let you know what they say. I’m leaving you a picture of me on my new wheels. I can go backwards really well. I can move forward, but I go really slow. This is going to be a great therapy toy for me. Thanks you Katie and Coye!! I love it!!!!

A Sunday Happy

I have learned a new trick. When my mommy puts me in my car seat, I start waving bye bye. I’ve been waving bye bye for a while now, but now I understand that when we get in the car we are going bye bye. I’ve been doing it every time I get in my car seat. I’m just too smart. My family is so proud of me. I keep showing great cognitive skills. I’m also signing eat more and more everyday. I really wish I could find the ER doctor that told us not to expect much. She couldn’t believe that I was sitting up the day she saw me. She really wouldn’t believe what I’m doing now. I would love for her to see me today. As far as my cold, I’m much better today. Pray that I keep getting better. Thanks for praying for me everyone. Your prayers are helping me do the impossible.
