Therefore confess your sins to each other

and pray for each other

so that you may be healed.

The prayer of a righteous person

is powerful and effective.  

~James 5:16~


Mr. J.D. Smith will be having an outpatient procedure at 9:20 Thursday morning at Advanced Pain Management in Hammond.  He would appreciate your prayers.

Bobby Simpson‘s back procedure went well yesterday.  Thank you for your continued prayers.

Macy Gueldner – I saved the best for last.  Macy is completing her chemo.  I am thrilled.  I remember when Macy’s grandmother contacted me to pray for Macy at the beginning.  Since then, the grandmother, Martha Drago, has had to fight a battle with cancer.  I am so thankful to know they are both doing so well today.

Go to the Caring Bridge and review the pictures and memories of our journey with Macy and her family.

Here it is, the end of the tunnel. Some roads throughout this journey seemed impassable, but somehow we triumphed and the light is now shining bright. I never thought it would be so difficult to find the words to describe my emotions. Despite the many tough hands that we’ve been dealt, I still keep my emotions private. But, this moment has brought forth  a surge of some of the most powerful and unexpected feelings that I’ve ever felt.
I feel a great sense of pride. I’m proud of my husband and our marriage. I’m proud of Cate. This has been a burdensome and exhausting journey for our family; however, our family bonds have only become stronger.
Macy has just 2 more weeks of chemo remaining. Tomorrow we will celebrate the end of her treatment in Baton Rouge. These doctors and nurses have become our family. They’ve been a weekly part of our lives for nearly 3 years. It will be sweet to leave the chemo behind, but so very bitter to say goodbye to everyone in our clinic who genuinely and deeply loves Macy.
To my dearest Macy,
You are a marvel. Your strength is immeasurable; your fight is valiant. You display a vast amount of courage. You love deeply. You show such resilience each and every day. You are my hero. You are my sunshine.
When I was 17 weeks pregnant with you, we were given the diagnosis of DS. I cried. I cried a lot. Then, I abruptly stopped and thought, “If anyone in the world has to stand behind you, to love you, to support you, it must be I. I am your mom.” And, I’ve been trying every day since that moment to be the very best mom to you. You make it easy for me.
In the words of Dr. Seuss, and the theme of your celebration, “You’re off to great places, today is your day. You’re mountain is waiting, so… get on your way.”
“Oh the places you’ll go!”
