Yes, I'm Still Alive!

What a week! My friend Tina and her adorable kids are leaving tomorrow...I can't believe it's been a week already! Jacob will be lost without his playmates. How wonderful though, to have Jacob occupied all week, be able to rest whenever I needed to, and have a girlfriend to talk to as well. Awesome.

There are some wonderful things going on and some not so wonderful, but the wonderful are starting to outweigh the rest. I can't go into too much detail, but I would ask that you would pray for guidance for me and the folks at Love INC who are so amazing in their outreach...that God would bring the right people together to fulfill His will and His desire for the sick and imprisoned, the hungry and naked, the stranger and the widow all be attended to.

Love INC is nation-wide...I would love for you to check out this ministry! Click here to find out more.

On another front, there is a fantastic organization locally that is offering 2 hours every other week to come and clean my house. I am so thankful. I finally got hooked up with the right people, and though I see some doors clearly shutting, I see so many others opening up.

I am continuing to improve in health, Praise God. My vitamin D level is no longer considered "deficient" so THAT has helped my energy level as well. Between that, the breathing machine during the day, the rest I've been able to get this week and medication changes...I think we may be one to something! Today would have been my week for plasmapheresis, and I don't feel like I need it at all!! That is HUGE.

I will be back more regularly from now on...I just was so stinkin' busy this week! Looking forward to sharing more as I get details of some really cool opportunities.
Have a great weekend!

I am so glad to see your spirits up, and so glad that you have had a weeks respite. I am also glad that your friend could come visit you so that you could be filled with the things you need. I hope next week continues to improve and that you are blessed with a much needed break!!

What a terrific friend, to drop her life and come to you!! And for you, allowing her to give you so many blessings!

I picked up on your vitamin D levels. At my 3 month appts, I always have blood work. For the last 18 months, my level is very low. My dr prescibes mega doses, once week for a month. This month with the levels being so low, I'm now on mega doses once a week for six months. Oh I pray I can find that little boast of energy and maintain it, just like you. I used to feel a little better the 2nd week and then would plumit as did my energy.

I'm just always so grateful for you, and your blog. It has been so helpful!

Blessings,
Krista-a child of Christ, wife to an amazing husband and momma to five blessings. I have a chronic illness but it doesn't have me.
