Hi Folks!  Just a tiny update as I have very little time this morning.  I hope to update with pictures soon, but for now I just wanted to let you know I'm alive and kicking.  I have been a bit under the weather, but am finally feeling better.  I've been stitching merrily away, but my laptop crashed and I hesitate to try anything too difficult on the ancient dinosaur we have hidden in the basement.  I've already messed up the printer using it so hopefully my blog won't blow up too!  LOL

I would like to ask for prayers for Tyler today though.  He is having complications due to the bone marrow transplant and his organs are beginning to fail.  He was placed on a special ventilator called an oscillator and a special kind of dialysis called CRRT earlier this week and if he doesn't receive a miracle, they haven't given him much hope of living past Monday.  The last word last night was the next 48 hours are critical.  His parents are clinging to hope as we all are, and my son is so sad, the whole thing is breaking my heart and I feel helpless to help anyone.  Please pray for this boy, his parents and the youth group he and his friends belong to.  I still hope for a miracle!  Our God is able, it's a matter of His will and what is ultimately for His glory.

Last thing I want to mention, I've been getting some strange and inappropriate posts to my blog.  I've removed them, and hope I don't get any more.  They weren't "bad" exactly,  odd, and from places I really don't want to be associated with, and on older posts.  I wonder if anyone else has been having similar problems?  

Hopefully my laptop will be back from the doc's soon and I'll be able to update with pictures.  See you soon!!

Hi DJ. I have gotten 3 weird comments on just one older post. In fact, I had 2 yesterday. It kinda scares me.

I will say a prayer for Tyler to improve and recover. God surely is able. I received weird comments too... Together with two other incidents going on in blogland, I guess it is time for the uglies to try and ruin our little world too! I just don't understand what they benefit?? Big Hugs!

Sometimes it's just about impossible to have the words to express our deep sadness. My eye often falls on your little 'Remember to pray for T' note, and I do. Thanks for the update.
Re the 'odd' messages, I don't have a blog, but I am pretty sure I first saw that type of 'weird comment with a promo link' appear in the comments of a competition blog (set up for The Gift of Stitching magazine). If nobody else is able to help, I'd be happy to ask Kirsten if she ever found out what the fix was.

How horrible to receive weird posts.

I will pray for Tyler and his family.

Wishing you a good weekend with lots of stitching time.

I think of him during the day sometimes, and when I do, I say a prayer for him and his family.

As for the comments, I'll try not to be so strange in the future! ; )
