Happy Birthday to Me!

Today was my birthday.  Events of the day didn't go the way I would have chosen, but it was a day the Lord has made and I will rejoice and be glad in in!

My 6 year old granddaughter has been in the hospital since Monday morning.  They still aren't sure what is wrong.  A spinal tap has been done to rule out meningitis.  She has pneumonia and possibly Kawasaki disease.  She's in quarantine over 4 1/2 hours away from me, her Grandma.  It's a terrible thing to be so far away from your grandbaby with they're so sick.  Dear hubby has a bad cold and it wouldn't do us any good to travel over there.  No one is getting in except Mom and Dad right now.  If you are a believer could you please keep her in your prayers?

My best friend Jenny took me out to lunch and we spent a lovely couple of hours visiting.  I've certainly been blessed by the friends in my life and I'm very grateful.

I'll be talking to you soon.

Blessings,

Betsy

  1. Happy Birthday! I'm glad you were able to spend time talking with a friend. That always helps ease the heart.
    I will be praying for your granddaughter. I know of the pain of being separate from the ones who love you when illness strikes. But this time will not prevail. God is holy and hears our prayers! May your faith be increased during this time.
    Hugs and blessings sent your way,

  3. It is tough when kids get sick and you can't do anything to help them. I will be praying for her too. Also praying the doctors are wise enough to start an appropriate treatment and that her parents stay strong and healthy.
