2nd time around grand parents YAY!!!

‎7-30-12.....had a wonderful day today by being able to meet our newest grand-baby, Leea Ruth, she is adorable!!! Heaven is doing great so far...she will be getting labs drawn tomorrow before camp this weekend and before her Make-A-Wish trip next week. Pray that all goes smoothly at the airport and that there will be no delays. It has been 19 years since I have been in an airport so I need all the prayers I can get to find my way around.
Please continue to pray for our family as the devil is once again on our backs. Pray that we will draw closer to Christ as a family and that we can reconize when the devil is attacking. Samantha is about as excited, if not more, than Heaven for the trip. Pray that Wayne will be safe here while we are gone. Also, pray for Waynes Momma and GranPa, they both need alot of prayers. ♥ Love to all and many blessings to.
Isn't she adorable!?!?!?

Happy Sunday Morning :-)

7-22-12.....Wow, how time flies. Been so busy and I didn't even realize its been 5 days since I have posted anything on the blog. Please accept my apologies to those who visit here daily. As for Heaven, she is doing good. God is good. We went to the Clinic for her appt. and Dr. Atkinson took her off of one of her meds, she (Heaven) is happy about that. Anyways, they drew a CBC and her results are.....

Some of her counts have come down and Dr. Atkinson informed me that it will happen and she also told me that I really need to put Heaven in the Lords hands and get back into church. lol. We, Heaven and I, are planning to go to church starting just once a week and work our way back to going to every service. But I told Dr. Atkinson that the first sneeze I hear that I am going to pick Heaven up and run out the door...she laughed so hard at me. I will always be careful with her and I am pretty sure that is the job of a Mother. :-) To love, nurture, and to protect as much as possible. Also, she was so wound up yesterday that I had to make her sit and calm down. She had a burst of evergy and she was laughing, joking, playing and jsut being herself, but I had to calm her to conserve some of that energy for today. lol.  Please continue to pray for our family and thank you all for your prayers.

As for what else is happening around here.....Wayne put in more than 100 hours working on his pheasant run this week (his other job had no work for them) and he worked in close to 100* temps to get it done so we could let the pheasants out. Well, this morning he went to feed them as he does every morning. He heard a loud scurrying inside the coop and thought it may be a coon...well he looked in the run and saw a pheasant had had its wing torn off...he looked in the coop and saw nothing. Well, he proceeded to walk around the entire run and then he saw it.....the culprit.....a cat! That cat had to squeeze though a small spot in the top of the coop that Wayne had intentionally left open for air flow. The cat was big and how it got through that hole...I nor Wayne will ever know. Anyways, the damage that was done was, the cat ate 1 whole bird and killed 2 others. But I will say this.....that cat won't be eating anymore birds cause his last meal was piece of lead.

For all of you animal lovers.....I love animals too. I actually found 2 wild bunnies yesterday that we fenced in the run and they couldn't get out, I brought them into the house so the girls could see them, but then it started raining, so the little bunnies will be released today when Wayne and Samantha arrive home from church. I dont' get a joy of shooting an animal but when the animal is eating up any profits you may time for that critter to go. Also, we have a problem here beings we have a couple of ladies down the road that won't get their cats fixed and therefore there is a hundred cats that runs around loose, but animal control won't do we have to take care of matters for them.

Anyways, God is good! Hell is real! and if you are saved today...take the opportunity now to tell someone else about the Salvation of Jesus Christ that they may be able to be saved from a devils hell.

Love to all may may your day be blessed abundantly.


So happy.....Heaven and I are heading to church with Wayne and Samantha tonight. First time in a while that we have been able to sit in a service where the TRUE Word of God is being preached. Thank you Lord for this opportunity...I pray we never take it for granted.

We have a Clinic visit to ...have her port flushed and for the Doc to do a overall physical and also before that the Make-A-Wish volunteers are meeting us at Pizza Hut in Roanoke for a Pep-Party to get Heaven exicited for her M-A-W trip to the Mall of America in about 2 WEEKS!!! Ahhh!!! it is so how time flies.

Comp. malfunction

‎7-15-12.....Computer was working fine today until someone got on it and clicked on something...not sure what but it totally messed up the comp. I set it back to factory settings (until we can afford a tablet or something) and I am very upset as to the fact of all the pictures of my daughters that I have lost...yet again. So if you have any pics of my girls please tag me in them so I can go to the... CVS and get them printed.
Heaven has been outside twice today, but not for long beings it is a bit warm out. Samantha is here withus this evening and not at church beings she has a big headache and is in her room sleeping.
Continue to pray for our family as it seems as if hte devil is fighting tooth and nail...again. Blessings to you all and Praises go to our Lord and Saviour.

Lazy day

‎7-13-12.....Hope you all are enjoying a wonderful evening with your families as we have. Children are a gift from God and we need to care for them as He cares for us. Tell them you love them, laugh with them, hug them, spend time with them.....for our lives are but a vapor.
Enjjoyed the cool gentle rain that has fallen today beings I don't have to water our garden. Watched Little House on the Prairie with the girls and I am now making some homemade paper items.
We all had somewhat of a lazy day today and we certainly enjoyed it even though we didn't agree with one another at one point. Praises go to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. ♥ to all and thank you all for your prayers.

Make the choice to talk more about your blessings than your problems, more good things will come your way when you do.

Bee Sting!!!!! OUCH

‎7-11-12.....Heaven, unfortunately, stepped on a Yellow Jacket (that was probably on her clothes when she came in from outside) and I cant get the bard out being it is driven into her heal. I am going to try one more time and if I can't get it,,,we are heading to the Dr.'s office in Broville. I have tried to apply tobacco (given from the neighbor) and I guess the barb is to far in her heel. Will update later.

Took Heaven to the Dr.'s office and the Dr. Bridges said that it looked as if the bard was out or either it was pushed farther up that he couldn't get it. He suggested that I keep an eye out for any unusual swelling or redness, and to also keep a close eye on Heaven for fevers or anything alike. Her labs were also taken and they had to stick her 3 times and they think it was due to her being so tense from the bee sting, but she did o.k. with it. Thank you all for watching for updates and praying for us tirelessly. ♥ and blessing to the Lord and to you all.

Restful but fin day

Had a great time at the YMCA with Samantha and Heaven today. Also, Veronica and Nick came (cousins) and they all played in the pool until someone messed it up and they all had to get out for 45 minutes ( I think a babies diaper came undone). yuk. Anyways, we all had fun and Sam also had fun playing volleyball.
Before Sam is done with volleyball, Heaven and I run up the road (in the truck) to Sonic and I get her a wacky pac and I get a milkshake for me and Samantha, then we go back to pick her up. Well, tonight while waiting at Sonic for the food and MS's, Wayne calls and ask where the extra flash-light is because there was a big black snake in one of the pheasants the time he got to them the snake had already killed one and then the snake had to go. I hate it when we have to kill black snakes but when they are eating any profits that you can make....they have gone to far.      Anyways...........
Heavens BP was good tonight 106/65 but she certainly is a tired little puppy and is going to bed to get her some rest. Sam is waiting in the rocker for the computer so she can stay up for a couple more hours watching netflix. lol. She is on some B-12 time released vitamins and she claims it kicks in more at night and therefor she can't go to sleep.
I will post a few pool pics tomorrow as to the fact that I can't get them to load tonight for some reason. Blessing to all and may God bless you accordingly. Thank you Jesus for all you many blessings.

Hard work day...BIG scare

‎7-9-12.....Had a great day working side by side with Wayne. From 8:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. we woked on getting a trench dug, fence hung and a bunch of other stuff and boy are we tired and burnt and hot still almost 6 hours later. lol. Samantha came out earlier today and said "Mom...Heavens BP was 165/140 (or something close) and I almost lost it (inside, I didn't let it show) well, I came to notice tha...t on teh machine there are 4 settings and it had been moved up 2 notches (whew!!!) I had a great big sigh of releif, because in my mind I was already half-way to Roanoke. Well, her BP when the setting was put back in place was 85/49 still a little low but she does carry a low BP. Thank you Jesus. I am glad Samantha keeps an eye out for her when we have work to do outside. Thank you all for all your continued prayers and I pray that you all are blessed with a wonderful day tomorrow. All the glory and praises go to my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Also, here is a pic taken later this evening of Heaven and her new wig (in which Samantha washed and braided for her) Looks so natural on her. Thanks goes to my friend Ginger in PA. Love ya girl.

The heat continues.....

Had a nice morning this morning with my family before half of them left for church. Wayne and I went outside and I covered the tomatoes with a sheet to keep them form getting scorched from the sun ( I have been doing this every morning for the last 2 weeks) and Wayne, bless his heart, had to put gas in a spray bottle and tried to kill a bazillion yellow jackets that are hovering around where the honey was.
Well, once Heaven got out of bed this morning, she wanted a sandwich so I made her a chicken one using a hot dog bun. When I handed it to her, she laughed her head off saying the bun was real bread. LoL. I am so glad that I can laugh and have fun with my kids and hubby. When Wayne and Sam returned home from church we had lunch together (as we always do) and Heaven went to say the blessing and we all started laughing because I had earlier stuck a piece of ice down Wayne's shirt and he was laughing his head off.
Then when we were done with lunch, Sam gave my dog Suki a cob that she had ate the corn off of and my dog ate it!!! They laughed their heads off, gives new meaning to corn dog around here now. LoL.
Can't wait to get ot go back to church as a family but I just want ot make sure that Heavens immune system is strong enough to handle the germs (if any).
Hope you all have a wonderful (rest of the) day today...and do your best to stay cool. Praise the Lord for the cool front that will be here starting tomorrow. Love to all.
I think I hear some thunder.....I pray there is some rain coming to.

Had a nice nap today, the heat can really wear you out. Went with Wayne later this evening to water the pheasants and the neighbor gave us 2 cantelope and 6 ears of corn in exchange for a fresh jar of Axton Honey. can't get much fresher than that. Anyways, we are all sitting here in the livingroom just chatting and giggling with each other but we are now getting ready for bed. Thank you Lord for all your many blessings. ♥ you.

Heat wave.....

‎7-7-12..... Had a very long hot day today (107*) heat index, helped Wayne outside, planting a lot of fence post for the pheasant runs, until about 1:00 (it became just to hot) then we went to town to pick up a few things and get some more pics developed for Heavens invitations. Heaven and Samantha stayed inside, it was just to hot for them to be outside, plus Sam keeps an eye on Heaven while I am that helps us out. Anyways when we arrived back home I wa...s so tired I laid down and the next thing I knew...I had taken a 3 hour nap. lol. I guess I must have needed the rest. Heaven is feeling well and is staying inside alot until this heat wave leaves, she usually goes outside after 8:00 0.m. but tonight it was so humid that when I went to water our little garden, I was sweating like I had been outside for 2 ours or more working,,,can't wait till this heat wave leaves, but hey...God is so good, He is bringing us some much needed rain this coming week. I can't wait to be able to open the windows again to air the house out, I can't stand having the same stiff air in the house. Anyways, I hope you all are staying as cool as possible and I pray that youwill be blessed accordingly.

Lab Draws Today

7-5-12.....Heaven has been doing quite well since we have been keeping her hydrated and keeping her in where it is cool. We do, however, take her to the pool on Tuesdays so she can get out of the hosue and hang out with a couple of friends while Samantha plays volleyball. They both enjoy it.
We will be heading out here soon to get her labs drawn in Brosville at a new Health Care Center. Heaven has taken to the Nurse that does the draws and we are going to go when she is there, trust me, I would have rather went at 7 a.m. this morning but the Nurse won't be there until after 1:30, and now we are waiting for Daddy to get home.
Please don't think for a second that, "well Heaven is better now so....." please keep praying for her and all the other children that are fighting this aweful disease. No child should have cancer.
Again, from the bottom of our hearts we thank you all for all you have done and the time you all have sacrificed. And for all my family and friends that will read this. We have an announcement to make...

August 18th, 2012 you are all invited to attend a Celebration in Honor of Heaven....for Completion of chemo with a great spirit, Dr. Appretiation, and her 13th Birthday. It will be held at the National Guard Armory in Martinsville, Va. Arrival time for everyone is between 10 a.m.-12 p.m. The Celebration will begin at 12:00. Come on out and celebrate the greatness of what the Lord is capable of doing in a young childs life and how He can touch many others while doing so.

I am trying to get invitations made and sent so if you do not get one, please know that you are still invited, beings we have so many family members and friends. God bless you all.

Labs went really good today, the only thing is we have to wait until tomorrow for the results. They drew a CBC and a Diff. which will give us the main numbers and her ANC. So anyways, we hhad a few extra minutes and we stopped by the library and the girls picked up some movies and I picked up some books. Thought I would share a photo with all of you of Heavens hair here it is........

Been a great, but {{{HOT}}}, weekend so far.

7-1-12.....The days are rolling by so quickly, I can not believe that it is already July. Seems like only yesterday we were hearing the words "Your child has cancer". All praises go to our Saviour Jesus Christ for bringing us thus this far. Thank you Lord for all you have done and may your blessing continue with Heaven becoming more and more healthier with each, quickly passing, day.

Heaven has stayed in the house 95% of this week. I know that she must be getting cabin fever, but it is all fo rthe best. Since we have kept her hydrated, (an alarm goes off every 3 hours from 9 a.m to 7 p.m) she has been doing much better with keeping the blood pressure in a much normal range for her. She does in fact goes outside after 8-8:30 p.m. but not without supervision, not only because of health reasons but becasue we have been unofficially informed that mountain lions have been released in Henry Co. to get control of the if releasing coyotes wasn't enough. One was spotted about 1/2 of a mile from our house, way to close for this Mommas comfort. No one goes outside alone here. Heaven has only had 2 very small nose bleeds and then her gums bleed a little to after brushing ( I need to get her a new brush). She has had some good energy and says she feels pretty good on a daily basis so far. So please keep those prayers coming. Christ showed me the other day that if we would spend just our spare time praying for others instead of complaing/gossiping/fussing with or about them that this world would be so much better. So love one another as Christ loves the church. Its that simple.
Well, we have had 2 rough storms the last couple of days and now my NOAA radio is going off yet again. Right now the storm is in Hillsville, Va and is headed east/southeast at 75 mph. The temps have been in the triple digits and we are under a severe heat alert. Well, anyways, I am signing off for now and I pray that you all remember that you are only here today because Jesus asked that you its up to you to find out why. Love to all.


So let me get this straight...we are going to be "gifted" with a healthcare plan that we are FORCED to puchase and FINED if we don't, which purportedly covers at least 10 MILLION more people, WITHOUT adding a single new doctor, but provides for 16,000 new IRS AGENTS, written by a committee whos CHAIRMAN DOESN'T understand it, PASSED by CONGRESS who DIDN"T read it but EXEMPTED THEMSELVES from it, a...nd SIGNED by a DUMBO predident who SMOKES, with FUNDING administered by a treasure chief (should be THIEF) who DIDN"T PAY HIS TAXES, for which WE will be TAXED for 4 YEARS before this takes effect, by a gov't which has already BACKRUPTED SOCIAL SECURITY and MEDICARE, all to be OVERSEEN by a SURGEON GENERAL who is OBESE, and FINANCED by a country that's BROKE.                 D.T.

YOU tell ME if all this is making ANY SENSE whatsoever. We Need to TAKE AMERICA BACK!!!
