I will update everyone as soon as I hear anything. The hospital is 45 minutes from where they live so they should be there by now. Hopefully the wait won't be long and I will have some news soon. I am waiting to hear before I decide what to do. Since sleep is out of the question at this point.....

Thanks everyone for your prayers. You are an awesome group of people :-)

Hugs,

Just talked to her and she is ok. They had given her some sort of shot to stop whatever was going on. She seemed in good spirits and a little more relaxed. They are sending her home.

I am so amazed at the goodness of God. He is so wonderful and an ever present help no matter what. How awesome that we can call on Him at any given moment and He is always right there. I am once again humbled by His goodness.

Just thinking out loud but how many of how think that Lindsey's closeness to Hurricane Gustav and the drop in barometric pressure could've had anything to do with this??

Not sure about barometric pressure causing issues in pregnancy, but I know the stress of an oncoming storm could certainly trigger something.

I'm thankful that she is getting to head home more relaxed and pray that the rest of the pregnancy goes on without incident.

Hoping for an easy delivery for Desi & Darren, too.

Glad to here Lindsey is going home! Will continue to pray that all is well now. I'll also be praying for Desi and Darren as Hanna and Ike seem to want to come and visit Charleston just as they are expecting the arrival of Raileigh. (hope I remembered that correctly) Are they thinking they will have to evacuate?

As for Desi and Darren.... no plans to evacuate just yet. The area they live in is very prone to flooding. I mean in a heavy reain they can't get out. Guess that's why it's called the "low country". Right now we are playing a waiting game. Desi goes to the doctor on Friday. Kind of waiting to see what doc says before plans are made. I've got this image in my head of everyone trying to leave and me trying to get in. Here again, just trusting God to work it out. :-)

Thanks again for all of your prayers!!

Your patience and faith are really being tested. By now I am sure you are saying that you know GOD doesn't give you more than you can handle with his help, but you wish HE wouldn't trust you so much!!

I just think of poor Mary at times like this, so near her delivery day, and riding on a donkey into Bethlehem.

Can anyone relate? I remember those last 2 CAR rides!!!

Love and smiles as well. Granny

Someone said once if you can't be grateful for what you have, be grateful for what you don't have.

Having had a lumpectomy in September and then a series of questions at the year point of the first mammo this year, all now OK, I am grateful for what I don't have.

Praying that your friends are well and coming through their valleys of shadows with HIS help.

I'll be praying for them and if you need someone to watch Jdog bring her over and I'll watch her for you. I can take her to and from school for a few days if you need the help.
May God bring you peace and strenght.

HEY! I just got back from hospital! GREAT NEWS!!
Skip is out of surg. The doc came out shaking his head and said he had never seen anything like it . . . . what was to be a 4-6 hour surg. only took 2 hours . . . his heart ran on its own the whole time . . . and he did not even need any blood transfusions!
None of these things are the way it happens usually! He is in CCU but was able to give me the thumbs up when he saw me!

God IS good! Prayer is Awesome . . . Thanks to all of you! you Rock!

Now if we can just get through breat cancer surg later in the week all will be graced! T :)

Many thanks to all of the offers to take care of Jdog. I've got arrangements made for her. She will NOT be making the trips with me. Way too much school to miss especially now that she is in middle school. I'm thinking that I will probably be heading to Desi's on Friday unless the doctor gives me reason not to. I talked to her today and she is complaining of feeling funny and just not feeling good. My opinion....early atages of labor. But we'll see.

Again thanks for everyone's prayers. God has once again taken care of my family.

Post-hurricane Quick Report
Board: Prayer and Healing

Just a quick post to let everyone know how we are.

If you have watched the news, you know that this storm was a mean one, but there was great mercy before landfall as it lost strength. We are so thankful.

Some areas were terribly hard hit, and we're waiting to see just what that means. Houma and Baton Rouge, Louisiana were hammered, and the damage was extensive. Many other areas were, as well. We are north of the roughest areas, but we may be without power longer than they will be. Estimates are ranging from one to six weeks, depending upon the area.

Our home was spared any damage; our trees filled the yard with debris. It's hot, hot without power, but we are more thankful than we are uncomfortable.

What mercy! To all who have prayed and thought about us, thanks so much. God is indeed good.

Mama Cache our prayers continue to be with you. Take care in the heat and remember to drink plenty of water since you will not be able to have much relief from the heat until you have power back. Gook luck with a speedy clean up.

I am so glad y'all are okay - and that you have temporary power for now! Wish I could drop in this weekend with my dear friend out of town... Louisiana is a little far from the Seattle area for a weekend jaunt, I'm afraid.

Has anyone heard from Blackberry Patch - she's in the Baton Rouge area.
