     This is my first post, I have always found that writing something down makes me feel better, whether anyone reads it or not!  We have a trial in our lives right now, our oldest granddaughter is going through some health issues now.  She is a beautiful seven year old with curls and big eyes, she has a kidney reflux and neurogenic bladder and yesterday her parents, other grandma and I went to learn how to catherize her at home.  Her bladder never fully empties when she goes by herself so to keep infections down and help the bladder we are going to empty it completely for her.  She has an appointment with a specialist May 9.  As hard as this is we have certainly seen the hand of God in everything, the hospital here is very overbooked and understaffed by their own admission and she has not been able to always have tests in timely manner.  God has worked on that  - her dad found a Childrens Hospital in another state and they called our hospital for records and set the appointment all in one day!!  The financial strain was a worry too, but an anonymous person has paid for the plane tickets to the appointment!  Wonderful people and churches have offered to help and I am overwhelmed by what God has done with this situation, he is good all the time.
     God also balances the trials in our life with blessings, our first grandson is due the end of May. We
have five beautiful granddaughters that we are thankful for, but it will be nice to have a little boy added to the family!
