Changes and Updates

Hello all! Sorry for a brief absence in the blog world. I have been super busy and a little on the sick side this week. I still feel pretty bad today, so keep me in your prayers. I would really appreciate it!

First, I would like to thank you all so much for praying for Gary and his family. The spinal tap showed that the mass on his brain is not an infection at this time, and think that maybe the medicines he is taking for his heart have something to do with it and the seizures. Gary is now on more medicines to keep him from having seizures. He is home now and doing good. Please continue to pray for him and his family. His recovery time from the transplant is at least 6 months. At this point he is unable to leave his house, for fear of infection. So that means sitting at home for the next few weeks, unable to even go to church.

School is going well for me so far. I believe I still have a 100 average, and also made perfect scores on a roller set evaluation and perm evaluation. I'm loving school and can't wait to learn more. I may even start a new blog, strictly for hair and cosmetology :-) That won't be anytime soon though. I can't even keep this one up to date sometimes!

Speaking of keeping this blog up to date...I'm going to be changing the P.U.S.H. prayer post to Mondays, mainly because now that I'm working, I'm never home until close to midnight, and I don't want to keep missing it. I don't have school or work on Mondays, so I can take my time on it, and that's important to me. So, starting next week, P.U.S.H. will be on Mondays. Make a note, tell your friends, ect. And email me- - with any requests you want included. Or you can post them as a comment on this post. Either way, I'll get them and post them Monday.

Work is going well. I've been working a lot of shifts this week and have been worn out, but at least I'm getting hours. I need them terribly so I'm thankful for the work. Next week isn't too promising. I work Sunday night and that's it. So money is going to be tight for me for the next few weeks. I have faith that God will provide though.

Sarah made mention about a possible 90210 discussion. That may just have to happen :-) I loved that show when it was on the first time around, and I'm loving it this time around too.

I'm interested in just how many readers I have, and where they are from. If you are a reader and have never introduced yourself, please, feel free to do so. I love hearing from new people!

Sidenote: Jamie, from Dreaming Big Dreams has made it to Haiti. Head over to her blog to read more, and keep her in your prayers!

My Uncle Bill is still doing about the same, but getting worse as days go by. Please keep him and my family in your prayers. I love him so much, and Aunt Jean too. I know it would be great to keep him here with us, but his home in Heaven is far greater, so if he leaves us soon, I know he will be in a much better place. I just really wish I could be there....

Hope everyone is doing well and wonderful. Head over to Sarah's blog and read her good news...
