"I'm a mother, I'm a lover, a chef, a referee. I'm a doctor, and a chauffeur seven days a week. I ain't asking for a medal, yeah I know you work too. I'd just like a little credit where credit is due. It's the hardest gig I've ever known. I work my fingers to the bone. Yeah the dishes and the diapers never stop. Lousy pay, there ain't no 401K. I know this may come as a shock, but this here's a full time job!"--Full Time Job sung by Gretchen Wilson

Prayers are Needed BADLY!

I have 2 people in my life that are in desperate need. If you pray, please pray. If you think, please think. These are important people in my life and I hate that this is happening to each of them.

The first is a man I have known my entire life. He is in the hospital fighting, but it is scary. I just keep praying that he will be OK. I also feel so bad for my dad. He lost his best friend last year and now the man that would probably be his second closest friend is lying sick in the hospital. Neither dad nor I do well with not being able to do anything!

The other is my good friend Jen. She is a sorority sister, but so much more. She was my Big Sis in the house, and just a big part of my life. She is a kind soul who would do anything for anyone. She has a beautiful daughter that is the same age as J (2) and a wonderful husband. She was pregnant with their second baby girl and due in August. Jen had gastric bypass a little over 5 years ago. Well, Friday night, she started having some pain, so they went to the hospital. The doctor couldn't find a heart beat; they had lost the baby. They took her back for surgery and discovered that 90% of her bowels were not getting any blood. They had to keep her sedated and went back in again yesterday removing the majority of her bowels. It is a very touch and go situation. She has had 2 good days and had a good night last night. The surgeon judged her healthy enough to have the 3rd surgery that she needs tomorrow to finish fixing her bowels and then to sew her up. Assuming all goes well, they will start to wake her up after that. We have a lot of people praying for her and her family, but it just sucks to not be able to do anything else for her. I have been in contact with her husband and have become the spreader of the information, finally getting er husband's permission to post it on Facebook. So, we are all trusting in God to take care of her and being grateful that Jen is a fighter. It is just difficult to not be able to do more.

So, please please please pray for my friends. They really need them. Thank you!!
With Love,
