We're so lucky too have these precious children in good health again! You see both Samuel 7 and Isabella 11 had the MRSA "super bug" staph infection just 2 months ago. At the time we did not know that it was MRSA. Not until Isabella ended up in the hospital did we find out. I remember one of the nurses at the hospital telling us to read the article in Readers Digest about what Isabella had, but not until Isabella went home. Samuel got MRSA from attending a football camp..then Isabella got it from Samuel. Isabella ended up in the hospital see my past posts. She had to have emergency surgery on her leg. Isabella who suffers from Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis went to her rheumatologist this past Fri. for her regular check up. Doctor Toth told Isabella's Mother (my daughter) how very lucky Isabella (& Samuel) are to have recovered from the MRSA infection. I'm sure many of you have heard on the News about the children who have recently died from this drug resistant staph infection. How awful...Samuel did not have the problems Isabella did. Isabella is immune suppressed because of some of the 6 medications she takes like Enbrel and Methotrexate for her JRA. All this started from a tiny piece of artificial turf stuck in Sam's leg. We through it was just a splinter at the time. Isabella's infection got in via a skinned knee. It's amazing how something as simple as a skinned knee can be so life threatening... I'm so glad Isabella & Samuel's Mother is always on top of whatever goes on with them. Thank you God for healing my precious grandchildren!

My friend Ronnie is in ICU and doing fine so far after surgery. Surgery lasted almost 9 hours! They removed his entire stomach, 4-1/2" of his esophagus, the tumor and some lymph nodes. It will be a few days to see if the cancer was also in the lymph nodes. He will be in the hospital for at least 10 days, with a feeding tube. They are concerned about bleeding and infection.
Will you please continue to keep Ronnie's in your prayers..
Thank you all for your emails and concern. What would I do without all you wonderful blogger friends. I love you all! God bless you~Mary~
