where do you even start...

well, david is in bed, ben and kobe are out in the kitchen and I am tired.

ben just talked to dave...bobbie's last blood test came back and her hemglobin went back up which is GREAT news...it makes surgery less likely.

Ben, along with several of dave's friends have moved everything from the house in oxford to the new house. now we just have to put everything away.

today i sat with bobbie for a while by myself while she slept. i just kept staring at her nose and lips because they have the least trama to them that shows.

every prayer i have prayed has been answered:

on the way to the hospital:

"Lord, please don't take my sister" - He answered.

Since then we have prayed for continual healing...He is there with her...healing her.

She is in so much pain. When they did an ultra sound to check out some of her organs they saw the baby-flipping around, perfectly fine.

God is so good.

Bobbie is as stubborn as ever, trying to take as little pain medication as possible. I know it is just the mom in her wanting to protect her baby.

she told her nurse she is having a girl (still too early to confirm by ultra sound) and that she is going to name her Madalyn. It is going to be one of the most joyous occations of my life to see my sister give birth to her second child...two people we almost lost.

when bad things happen we only have one choice...to look for God...and trust me...HE has not left Bobbie's side since that Truck even touch their front yard.

Pray with us...Praise God for HIS protection...HE is so good.

You are right GOD is good all the time. It is us who can't wrap our minds around his plan. So many people said to tell you all that they are praying for your family. We will see many good things from this, cause God takes our trials and turns them into treasures as we help others when they go thru things that we have gone thru.
Love you,
Mom
