** 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}} **

~ My Mom ~

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.
~ Isaiah 43:2

Hi Dear Friends ~

I would like to ask for your prayers for my mom again. She was just rushed by ambulance to the hospital. She has a very high fever and is having severe abdominal pain that started earlier today. As some of you may remember, she had a very similar episode back in February that was initially thought to be Pancreatitis, but she was eventually told they believed it to be Diverticulitis. However, they never actually pinpointed what was going on. She seemed to recover nicely and hasn't had any problems since.

My mom suffers from a whole host of medical issues that are quite serious. The two most pressing issues at this time are Type II Diabetes and a severe heart condition. Her Diabetes is not currently under control, even though she and her doctor have been working aggressively to get it there. Her heart condition is NOT from heart disease but from a very abnormal heart rhythm, Atrial Fibrillation, that has led to her having chronic Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) and a very enlarged heart that no longer functions very well on its own. Therefore, a few years ago, she had to have a Pacemaker/Defibrillator implanted in her chest. The Pacemaker is to ensure that her heart pumps at a steady rhythm at all times to ensure that enough blood is pumped to the rest of her body. The Defibrillator is there in the event that her heart goes into an abnormal, life-threatening rhythm and does not correct itself quickly. If this should happen, the Defibrillator would then deliver a jolt of electricity to hopefully help the heart return to a normal rhythm. Praise the Lord, that has never happened and I pray it never does.

I would really appreciate your prayers for my mom. She is always taking care of others, no matter how sick she is or how rotten she may feel. I really hope this is nothing major. Please help her feel our prayers tonight.

Thanks so much and have a blessed Sunday.

Hello Teresa,

I just came in and read your blog post. I am praying for your mom (and you), and hope that the doctors finally find the cause of her stomach ailments. Also, I pray that they control her diabetes and heart problems.

Thank you so much for dropping by our blog, and for the kind words! We write this blog for kids. And if we help them learn in a fun way, then our job is done!

Please keep coming back, and I will keep visiting you and praying for you and your family.
