Hello, Dear Ones! Have I told you how very much I appreciate you? Your support, your kind words, thoughts and prayers for me as well as my little granddaughter, Carter, and all she is going through now.
I come to you again with a prayer request for my little Carter. Most of you know she is only 5 years old and has a rare autoimmune disease. Her doctor decided to wait on giving her another chemo treatment for a while and if the numbers are lower in her blood work, which she had done today, he will lower her steroids. She is on a really high dose of steroids and you know the ugly things they do to a little child's body. Please, please join me in prayer that her numbers will be lower. I still have every confidence that our mighty God is going to heal our baby! Thank you all so much for praying for her and for me.
Okay, I have no pretty pictures of after Christmas decorating to show you. None of that has happened around here. God bless Mr. Precious! He has been my rock, my love, my nurse, my cook, my housekeeper, my personal maid! :) He took all of the Christmas decorations down and took them into the basement for me. I may not be able to fine everything next year, but that's okay! :) Any way, I'm doing well. Had a few rough days as I had some withdrawals from the Oxycontin the doctor had put me on for pain. But the anxiety has almost left me now and I am taking some 600 mg Ibuprofen.
So... to shorten my long story. I'm still in the immobilizer and have to use the walker and I'm doing my exercises. I have a physical therapist coming by twice a week to help me. I'm still pretty much down most of the time. I didn't want to read and got tired of watching TV so what did I do? Grabbed my crochet hooks and yarn and went to town making crocheted doll clothes.
I got little Carter an American Girl Doll for Christmas and you've seen all of the clothes I made for her through last year. I waited until I got home and had her come over so I could see her open the doll and all of the clothes. She named her doll Blossom and loved the clothes and we had a fashion show.
Oh, I just had to finish off her outfit with a little crocheted headband. Cute as can be, I think. I have more things to show you in a few days.
Thank you again for your prayers for my little Carter.
Be a bunch of sweeties,
I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~
Great I Thy Faithfulness
Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father
