Update and 911



Hello my friends, I know your day was filled of memories of 09/11/01....a horrible day for my American friends and a day the world changed forever. We lost many of our own that day, Canadians that worked in the Twin Towers....so so sad. To me it is also very sad that we still are losing our young men and women today. Will there ever be a time in history where we are not at war? I don't know but I pray that one day all wars come to an end. Just last week I watched on TV 2 funerals of young men, killed in Afghanistan. They were only in their early twenties.....as I have said many times, Life is not fair but it's Still Good.

Thank you for all your prayers and please keep them coming....Kathy called me twice today to update me but I haven't heard from her since 1:30. Lucy's fever had gone down and she is resting and seems comfortable. She is still in ICU. The family had met with her pediatrician and were waiting for a neurologist to view her x-rays, CAT and MRI scans. Apparently Lucy was born with a small birthmark on her head which has grown and became infected.....she may need surgery but Kathy is hoping that will not happen. The good news is that if it is only the infection then the antibiotics she is on should help her, they won't know if it is more than that until they speak to the neurologist. Kathy is very emotional and exhausted but she ask that I thank everyone for their prayers. She has a wonderful and strong faith. I will keep you posted. I wanted to mention the picture I have shown you these past two post was taken on Aug. 26th the day after Lucy was born. I will never forget how happy the family was that day.....a day I always want to remember.

In closing I want to say that all Americans should be very proud today. You are all kind, loving, caring and a very strong people. You all came together with hope and pride on that horrid day, stood together as one......and through your pain reached out and helped one another. God Bless you all and may God Bless your beautiful country.

Good Night my friends and God Bless.............:-) Hugs

Hi Bernie-

I so appreciate the update on Lucy - from what you are saying it seems she will recover and be well soon - and hopefully she wont need surgery. I will keep her in my prayers for a long time and the family and you too Bernie.

Today held true that we will all "never forget".

Love to you Bernie
Gail

Eileen said...

Thank you, Bernie, for all your kindness.

There are so many 'battles' in life that draw us together, and now we are drawn together in prayer for Lucy's battle. May God's Healing Touch be upon her, and May His Peace be on her family.
Love and Prayers,
Eileen

Bernie said...

Hi Gail, I am still thinking of you and your son from that horrid day....you must of been frantic.
Let's keep praying for Lucy, she just has to make it through this, she is so loved and wanted and has been so blessed to be born in the most amazing family......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Thank you my friend, luv you..Hugs

Barb said...

Hi Bernie,
I came on to visit you before I go to bed. I was thinking of Baby Lucy constantly. I'm glad there is some indication that her infection is clearing. My heart goes out to her family.
September 11 always brings very strong memories of loss. Thank you for your kind words.

Bernie said...

Hi Barb, I have been thinking of you and your friend as well.
Still need your prayers Barb, she still is in ICU and well we just don't know yet.....Luv ya...Hugs

You are right. Today changed the world forever! What is the use of fighting over territory/ religion. I don't see any logic in it whatsoever, but wastage of resources and lives. We have emerged stronger out of this, and will continue to go from strength to strength. Amen!

Valerie said...

Bernie, I hope the corner has been turned. I shall keep praying.

GrandmaK said...

So good to hear that little Kelly is improving. Will continue to pray! God bless you all! OH! I like your darling header! Cathy

Wanda said...

Good morning Bernie...
Almost immediately on waking, I thought of Lucy...may she please be better. A sick child is so disturbing, just heart breaking.

Seems the world should be able to find peace for the sake of all children...come together for their welfare...be as respectful and friendly as America and Canada, we are lucky!

I am hoping for the best...I know how all this affects you Bernie, take care and find good in your weekend.

Always,
Wanda

Diana said...

Oh Bernie I will keep hoping and praying for beautiful little Lucy. I almost lost Ginny when she was 11 months old from spinal meningitis. I was in such despair those days. It was horrible. Fortunately she came out of it but has had a few problems from the residual.
I pray that Lucy pulls through and grows up to be a strong and intelligent woman like Ginny!
Love Always, Di

Bernie said...

Oh Stillness, I so agree whether we believe in the good guy/bad guy thing, the bottom line is these young people are dying leaving young families, mothers and fathers in deep grief....breaks my heart. I still don't agree with war but then there are many things I don't know that those in power do. I just get frustrated with the uniformed making decisions and spreading untruths......thank you for your prayers for Lucy, she is in a real battle right now. Love you my friend......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Val, thank you for your prayers, she is still in a battle....Hugs

Bernie said...

QMM, it is so very easy to find kind words for the USA, they have been wonderful neighbors to Canada. Thank you for your prayers for Lucy......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

GrandmaK...thank you for your prayers, Lucy is still struggling but we are all praying for her. I like the header on my blog as well just wish I knew how to wrap it.
Have a wonderful day.....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Good Morning Wanda, I too thought of Lucy first thing this morning, I am praying very hard for this all to work out.
I am going to relax and enjoy the tennis today. Thank you for caring my friend, luv ya......:- Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Di, it is a horrible to watch an innocent baby so ill and not being able to help anyone bothers me tremendously....thank you for your prayers my friend. How is your knee today?......:-) Hugs

Jackie said...

Lucy has been in my mind and heart since I first received your prayer request...I continue to pray for her with all my heart. Thank you for the update on her. She and her family are at the forefront of my prayers today.

Bernie said...

Jackie, thank you for your prayers, pray has become a part of my day just as often as brushing my teeth. I only wish I would hear from someone today to let me know how Lucy is doing. I am not going call Kathy's cell as it will be turned off if she is in ICU with Lucy and I know how tired she is. I am just going to keep praying until Lucy goes home safe, and healthy. Luv you.....Hugs

Sniffles and Smiles said...

The Retired One said...

I hope the baby continues to improve and that they reach a diagnosis soon...nothing is worse than not knowing what is happening.
9-11 was a horrible vicious crime and one that none of us (from any country) will forget. The families of those lost will never be the same, either. So much courage was shown by the survivors.
I hope you are feeling well, Bernie and enjoying the beautiful autumn weather. You are in my thoughts lots!

Bernie said...

Joan, we are all still praying for Lucy, haven't heard anything today and don't want to bother them as I know they are emotionally exhausted and spent.
Our weather is beautiful today, enjoy your Saturday....:-) Hugs

Kay said...

I couldn't read this blog yesterday, the rememberance of 9/11 still to raw, to emotional...but glad I did to see the update, it seems there is hope afterall, so glad!

And in reference to your comment, you are an inspiration! :) Have a happy day!

Bernie said...

Kay, your post was wonderful...it is wonderful to see how each forms their opinions.....Will update on Lucy as soon as I know more...Hugs
