My sister's husband Dennis Lickly July 7, 1948-Aug. 28, 2006 As he was dying I stood by his bed rubbing his face. Tears ran down his face as I told him not to be afraid. He promised he would give all my loved ones in Heaven a hug and he slipped away.

Thank you Rosie for adding me to your page for prayers. I'd also like to thank sr/ks, GeorgiaCA, Cari, & Judy Miller for putting me on their page for prayers. Thanks to all who have done so for me.

In Oct. 2010 they did a bronchoscopy while I was in the hospital and found I have both MRSA and Pulmonary Fibrosis (scarring) in the lungs. The scarring (Pulmonary fibrosis) will keep growing until there is no room for oxygen in my lungs. Please keep praying for me that God will heal me or take me home. I have fought a hard battle for so long and I am so weary.

My Dr. said I would not be alive past April 2012 and yet here I am. I am blessed and so thankful for the 2 years I have had. Having been in church my whole life I believe in miracles. I pray for a healing or to die quickly when it is time for me to leave this world.

I also have rheumatoid arthritis and several of my fingers have been affected. I also have had asthma all my life.
July 24, I cried and prayed for hours most of the night from spasms all over my body. My heart rate kept going down to 45 and would work it's way up to 150. We had to send Jovanni home yesterday. I believe he is what keeps me hanging on.

Nubbins is a great cat except she wants to get in our plates when we eat. It is hard to try to break her from it.

Checking in today!
Hi Ann,
Sorry that you were in so much pain from the spasms last night. We will put the spasms back in our prayers!
I'm thankful that you've been able to spend quality time with Jovanni! He is such a joy for all of you! How's Bethann doing?
God Always Hears Our Prayers! HE WILL ALWAYS WALK BESIDE YOU!
Nubbins sounds a bit like a spoiled kitty! So, he seems to be accustomed to people food, huh! That is a really hard habit to break him from because I'm sure cat food isn't particularly tasty!

Bless your heart!
We lost power for 7 hours... starting at 7 last night..and didn't get power back until 1:30am today! UGH... It was so hot here in Texas, but am so thankful it was at night and not during the day! We got internet back earlier this morning, followed by the telephone...and then some of the TVS got cable far I have not got it back on mine.. GREAT... is that somebody's way of telling me to get my work done first? I couldn't sleep last night because of Brandon (9 years old)... he has Asthma and I was so afraid that would rear its ugly head.. and the doctor is saying that the left side of his heart is enlarged... that is why he is having chest pains... Remember I sent him to ER by ambulance last May after the school had me come and get him... They had already given him his inhaler and that was not I made a judgement call and sent him to Tyler ER by ambulance..I knew they could help him a lot better than I matter what was wrong! Apparently the doctor agrees that was the best thing to have done... am praying that the 28th we will find out what they need to do for him!
God bless you, dear friend! I know that baby keeps you going, but you still need to take some time FOR YOU..and get some rest! Praying that GOD will bless you with some very good days... and lighten the load you are carrying! Hugs, Cile

I'm with Cari...I enjoy your posts as you keep us all informed. The loveliest ones are when I read of your family gatherings and all of the wonderful memory making. Keep heart dear Ann, as you have done along the way.

I'm so glad that you're able to truly enjoy your time with Jovanni! What a blessing he is!
Sorry to hear that you're having increased trouble with the CHF. Have Faith! Believe in Miracles, my dear friend! I know, you're probably tired of me saying that, but it's so true! Miracles happen every day!
You are an amazing lady and I enjoy your posts!

Keep those legs elevated!
Water weight.. UGH... I know that feeling! I am afraid I am going to start losing ground on weight loss... the warmer weather is coming back... but I don't know if I am going to be able to stand that even at the waterpark for exercise! The cooler weather makes my bones hurt... So I guess in my old age (59) there is NO PLEASING ME! LOL... I get yelled at all the time elevate your legs... OK... how do I do that when I am doing laundry... and washing dishes? I need a doctor that is a female WITHOUT A MAID! They all know that fussing at me goes in one ear and out the other... so could they just say hello and your tests are fine...goodbye..see ya in 6 months.. like the cardiologist did? LOL... Did I mention that she wanted to do 100 tests and I said NO... well she and I are not great friends...but we weren't to begin with so I figure that wasn't a loss.... LOL.... Time to haul some more water to the washing machine so it can wash/ask for more water/rinse... I am doing MORE work than it is these days! LOL... Love ya!

RE: Just dropping in
Thanks, Ann! I appreciate your prayers so much! I know you have so much to deal with, and I pray for you and your family, too! God bless you all. I hope this is a great weekend for you. Will let you know when I find something out.. WHENEVER that is... Christopher's kidney issues turned out to be FALSE... after a trail that led to the kidney doctor at long last! They think he has a larger than normal bladder and that he is not emptying it enough because he doesn't need to! Must be nice... MINE must be SMALLER than normal! LOL.... Take care, sweetie! Hugs, Cecile
