** Due to the increasing severity of MY ILLNESS, it has become impossible for me to continue to post on a regular basis. Unfortunately, as much as I desperately long to, I am also unable to visit each of your blogs often or reciprocate all the loving, supportive comments many of you continue to leave - even though at times it may appear as though you've arrived at some long ago, forsaken blog! With that said, I really want you to know that I miss every single one of you and that I really am still here! I'm just too sick and too weak most days to be able to sit up long enough to create a brand new post...or even read one. However, I absolutely do receive AND read every new encouraging word you leave (and, often, the old ones, again and again!) and I cherish them now more than ever! I truly appreciate your love, support, and, most importantly, your precious time spent on your knees in prayer for my family and me. It ALL means the world to me and I am truly blessed to have friends like you!
~Hugs and Sister Love, Teresa

FYI: All comments come to my email, which I can easily read on my phone. I also enjoy Facebook on my phone because I can catch up on A LOT in a very short time there. Soooo, if you're on Facebook, come 'friend' me there! {{HUGS}} **

Update #4 - WE'RE HOME!!

Hello everyone. I'm going to try and make this short and sweet because it has been a very LONG and ARDUOUS day! We wanted you all to know that Teresa was FINALLY released to come home around 4:00 this afternoon. She is doing fairly well, all things considered. She is extremely weak and exhausted from the nasty bacterial bug she has, not to mention how difficult it is to get any real rest while in the hospital!

Teresa really hopes to be back posting soon and to be able to sharing more about this long ordeal with you. Until then,
if you are one of her many prayer warriors, she would like to humbly ask that you specifically pray for her pain to be relieved. This is her third port placement but this has by far been the most painful one. It was placed in her left upper chest, near her 'collar bone' and it is really difficult for her to use that arm. She had a very significant injury to that area from an automobile accident back in 1999, so please pray that the surgery did not reaggravate that injury. Hopefully, it is just due to some of the manipulation they had to do of that area during surgery.

Other than that, things are looking good for now. As always, our whole family truly appreciates your countless phone calls, visits, cards, meals and so many other things you have been doing to help encourage us and to make our lives a little bit easier to bear right now. May the Lord bless you 10-fold for all you have done and are continuing to do.

Thanks so much for all your support,


P.S. As for the 'Pay It Forward Giveaway', the two winners will be chosen at random by our youngest daughter, Bek, on Saturday afternoon, January 30th. The two winners will be notified via email, plus Teresa will do a post letting those winners know. Good luck!

Tell Teresa that I am praying for her. She has been on my mind when I go through my blogs and haven't seen her in awhile. I knew she was feeling bad. Tell her we hope to hear from her soon! Get well soon Teresa!
