An Oldy but Goody!

Big Mick..............

I just wanted to give everyone an update on Mick.  He did get the results of his MRI this evening on his brain and his tumor has NOT returned.  Praise the Lord!

It looks so far like all the symptoms are being cause by diabetes which he is still trying to get under control.  Thank you all for your prayers and caring.

Thank you Father God for your gift of Love to us in Jesus, My Lord and Savior.
This song has put me on my knees.

Applique Thursday and a Prayer Request.

I've decided this must be the back. Maybe I should sew a tail on him.


Hop over to Angie's at A Quilting Reader's Garden.  She has finished her Black Bird block. I'm so in love with it. Hoping he'll fly to my house.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

Big Mick hasn't been feeling well for a while. Of course, we were all worrying weather his brain tumor had returned and didn't even think about his diabetes.

He is now taking a pill, and we are hoping to get his sugar lowered. We did go to ER and spent a couple of three hours there on Tuesday. His sugar was 599 and 460ish when the ER doc took it.

This morning we had another MRI on his brain to check that out. We won't get results on that until next week. I don't normally post serious, personal information here, but I would like to request prayers for my sweetie.

I took a cute picture of him, but he thought he looked to old to post. Yes, he's still a little vain...giggle.  He'll be 66 on Christmas Eve. I think he looks great!

Thanks Guys and Gals!!
