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
