Keith Allen and Renee Deck Harrell both had back procedures.  Keith is able to get our some, but Renee is a little slower recovering from surgery and getting around.  Please say special prayers for her.

 Remember this:

Whoever turns a sinner from the error of his way

will save him from death

and cover over a multitude of sins.

~James 5:20~

(As I prepared my Sunday School lesson for today, I found a note at the end that encouraged us to invited people to Sunday School next Sunday to learn of the resurrection and its impact on our future.  That certainly is  good idea.  This morning, hears a verse to give us more encouragement to do so.)

Jadon’s Journey (Written by his mom)
Ortho doesn’t think it’s a fracture. She thinks that the tendon is tight and because Jadon is so active it is rubbing against the bone by his heel which is the area that hurts him to touch. The rubbing is causing inflammation which is causing him to not be able to walk. They put him in a cast for 2 reasons. 1 to let his foot rest so it can heal. 2 to help stretch the tendon. They casted his foot at a 90 degree angle to stretch it really well. He will wear the cast for 2 weeks and then we will go back to see what needs to be done next. He is so happy he can walk on it. I just pray it doesn’t set him back too much. He was doing so well!! The ortho seems to think we will have to do adjustments every time he has a growth spurt.

 Jadon’s Journey

Update on Jadon’s foot. The orthopedic called yesterday and said that after reviewing his xrays that it looks like a fracture. It is not his tendon like we originally thought. We will go back to Childrens Monday to get a cast. He is not happy about it. He wants it to come off now because he says it feels better. He is such a tough little boy. He kept telling me there was a crack inside his foot. Well he was right. His brace that he wears was giving him enough support to walk and that’s why he was having so much trouble when we took it off. It also explains why it was getting worse daily. It had to be hurting him and he never complained of pain. My tough little guy! (Written by his mom)

~Matthew 19:14, HCSB~

 

Christy Hayne’s dad has had more heart problems which were hopefully corrected with surgery.  He is better and able to be back at home as of yesterday.  Christy is thankful God has more plans for her dad here on earth.  He lives in Florida.

Johnnie “Lil Man” Santangelo has had some new issues and is beginning a new treatment, IV chemo, for brain inflammation and swelling and to restore vision, strength, and tolerance.

Macy Gueldner (Written by her mother)

I’ll be on my way to Baton Rouge after Cate’s soccer practice. I’m switching places with Jeremy tonight, and I’m very happy about it!

Macy is doing fine. All I know about the bacteria is that it’s a bacteria that is usually found in the intestines. I don’t think they’ve identified a specific antibiotic to use, so she’s still on a broad spectrum. They’re in no hurry to release her, so we’ll be a few more days, at least.

Thank you for all of the thoughts and prayers. We appreciate everyone’s concern, and it helps to know that we’re surrounded by so much love

Two special monthly events I attended this week:

  • Young at Heart at New Zion was especially meaningful to us as two ladies who are missionary moms attended with one of them speaking.  We formed a special bond in that short time together.
  • We were also blessed by the gathering at the cabin last night.  The group of people and each word spoken/sung seemed to be “just what we needed”.  Two special observations: Our group last night included seven retired teachers.  We heard “Happy Birthday” on the harmonica, a first for most of us!

Next week – “Young” Ladies’ Birthday Party

  • Tuesday at 11:00 A.M
  • The Cafe in Kentwood
