She's coming home!

My daughter, son in law and granddaughter are at the airport in Chicago waiting to fly home to Arkansas.  Her surgery went well, she will have a kidney ultrasound in 4 to 6 weeks here at home and will go back to Boston in 6 months to a year depending on the ultrasound results.  God has blessed us so much during this time, the kindness and prayers and generosity of everyone has been wonderful.
We are so thankful for His healing hand on Caitlyn!

In other news we canned tomatoes this morning!  I use them in so many things that I am always happy to have more to can, we did vegetable soup last weekend so the pantry is filling up. My mother and my mother in law both gave us okra too, so we have been enjoying fresh fried okra, there is nothing like it!

Praising the Lord!

We are so thankful for Lord's healing hand.  Caitlyn left the hospital today feeling well enough to tell her mom she wanted to go to the Children's Museum today!  Her mom explained that she wasn't quite ready for outings yet but I am so happy that she feels that well after major surgery.  They have gone to the Inn that the hospital has and will be there thru next week, Caitlyns post op appointment will be next week.  I am so very thankful for all of the prayers offered up for Caitlyn from our loved ones and from those who do not know her.  God has truly blessed us and taken care of all of us through this trying time.

Granddaughter's Surgery

This morning my daughter, son in law and granddaughter left for Boston.  Caitlyn will have pre op tomorrow and Wednesday they will do the surgery.  We appreciate all of the prayers and kindness of so many, God has truly blessed us.  I know that Cait is in his loving care and she's going to be just fine.

We have the younger sisters with us for this week and partially next week. I took off so they could have one week of not being sent here and there, next week I have all kinds of volunteers to help out with them, that is a blessing too.

This morning I got up with my husband and started peeling apples to can apple pie filling.  I got it all canned before any little girls woke up!  It looks pretty sitting on the countertop cooling. I am going to let the little girls in the wading pool later and we have lots of fun stuff to do!

Please keep Cait in your prayers!
