Health news, a baby boy & last of FFC Winners~

Hello my friends...
I want to start this post with saying thank you to all of you who have been praying for me and emailing me with your kind words and love. I would have loved to get on here sooner but my health and time did not allow. I have been through a rough couple of weeks and my body is taking a beating, literally. What I do know as of right now is that my diabetes has grown a little more out of control, my body has been more tired then normal and I'm starting to bruise in various spots of my body. Mainly my legs. I'm saddened to say that I am in the middle of ordering myself my first wheelchair. That time has come. I have dreaded this time coming but I no longer can prevent the inevitable. My DDD is showing rapid progression and while I still have my mobility and the ability to walk, it is very limited. So now I am working toward acceptance of my health issues and staying positive to find a way to move forward and make the best of each day. So again, I thank you for your prayers and your continuous support, love and patience.

I also wanted to announce that I'm an aunt again!!! My sister gave me a little nephew!
Please meet Gavin Joseph!
Gavin was born on 7/16/14 at 2:47am weighing 7lbs, 9oz. He will be 2 weeks old tomorrow! His big sister Alaina Rose is super excited! I cannot wait to meet this cutie pie next week!

  2. Congrats to all of the winners - What a cute baby Jo he is adorable - I am sadden to hear of your health issues - I cannot image what you are going through - It has to be a difficult struggle each day - May you get all the help and encouragement you need to keep on keeping on - I pray God will grant you a healing - I believe in miracles - but I do not understand why some people are healed and others are not - it is surely a mystery - I do know that God says "My Grace is sufficient" - have a happy day - blessings - Gail

  4. I am very sorry to hear this news Jo, it's not news any of us want to hear. But you are doing the right thing and not fighting the wheelchair to hard.

    I am so sorry that you are going through health issues. you know I have been there.
    I believe in prayers so I pray even when it seems impossible. But I also know how difficult it can be when you just cant even pray because you are overwhelmed with so much ...so I will do that for you my friend. You are forever in my heart...
    Sending you TONS of my love and hugs
