updates

I wanted to post some more pictures of the puppies but my new computer is not reading my photo disk thingy.....grrr....I don't know what the problem is....oh well, anyways they are getting so big and they are SO adorable. They are ready to go to new homes next week and I have had 2 phone calls ..... hopefully they will all sell and quickly, but as cute as they are....8 puppies poop is not so cute and adorable!

They are eating puppy food now and Shelby is starting to want to wean them. Of course the kids want to keep ALL of them but ya we are not that dumb! J wants to keep 1 and sell Shelby, she is so cowardly and sheepish it is annoying, not to mention her getting into the garbage and poopin all throughout the garage when there is a doggy door for her to get outside! doesn't make sense! oh well, so we shall see, if someone wants to buy all the pups then I say let them go! and Shelby too!! I know cold hearted I like dogs a lot but admit I am not a dog lover and will not put up with crap.....literally!

J is gone to the ER right now where he is meeting with his neurologist. We made a list of questions for him and hopefully he will have the answers! and he has to fill out the disability claim form. J has been doing progressively better over the weekend! He is standing a bit taller and although he still has a lot of numbness he is walking better. He has more energy too and there is no more depression. He still will get frustrated with some finer motor skills and when I ask what is wrong he says, "oh nothing just loving this perfectly wonderfully made body of mine"..... I don't blame him, it would be frustrating not being able to do simple tasks. I know I have said it before but we are so thankful for all the prayers! even on the CIDP support website in one of the treatments it says prayer....there is power in prayer and positive thinking and speaking! We know that God will be and is glorified in our lives.

Our Pastor came over this morning with another man from church and they prayed over J. It was a great morning getting to know our new Pastor as well. He seems like a real down to earth guy and we feel so at home with him and our new church. That is such a great feeling! J said he knows he is going to have a powerful testimony from all this, to the staff at the hospital to the lady he met there that also has CIDP and walks with a cane and spends several months a year in a wheelchair, to the guys at work. God is bigger than CIDP and He is showing Himself Faithful to J and to our family.

Lastly J's parents are coming out for the weekend. I pick them up Thursday night and they are staying until Monday morning. We are all really excited to have them come as they have not seen our new place yet. The girls are thrilled as well. It should be a great weekend!

I can't believe all the things that have happened in such a short amount of time.

I hope the visit with your in-laws is wonderful.

We have 1 puppy and cannot imagine having more than one. I'm not a dog lover either, but am planning on our dog one day having puppies of her own too. Lots of work huh? What kind are they?

I am so sorry to hear about the CIDP. I didn't know what it was, so I googled it. Being prayed over is so healing. I am glad he got to experience that.

Blessings!

I'm glad he's feeling better, and getting around better. One can never underestimate the power of prayer. There have been many studies conducted linking spirituality to the level of well-being in chronically and/or seriously ill patients. He works in wondrous ways.
