Thank you so much.

First I want to say thank you for all of your responses. I really, really appreciate all of the kind words of encouragement. Some of your comments had me in tears, and I heard the Lord's voice in your words. I was getting so behind on updating, I felt bad even trying because it has been so long. I have had offers from some of you to help, and I think I will take you up on it. I want to say thank you to those of you that offered, and tell you I will be in touch with you soon. I also want to address a few comments/questions:

1. There was a suggestion to organize the prayer list by category, those going through the same diagnosis. This would also give those going through the same thing a way to find others that have something in common, and provide a sort of support group. I think this is a fabulous idea, and I will be making those changes soon. Thank you!

2. There was a question about making a list of the prayer requests so you can check them yourself. If you look at the top of the blog, the different lists are across the top, and if you click on them, it will take you right to the list. I used to have them all listed out on the side but it made the blog so long to scroll through, I seperated them into different pages.

3. There was another suggestion to list the requests so that the ones most recently updated will be at the top. I do not know if the pages I am using will allow that, but I will look into it, because that is a great idea. It would allow for ease of knowing who has posted an update.

4. Someone metioned having the comments set to where I do not need to ok them before they are published. The reason I had it set like this is because I was getting a ton of spam. It has seemed to ease up though, so I will change the comments settings. Thanks for this input.

Thanks for all your ideas. You ladies (and guys?) are awesome and I appreciate you. I know God does too. I will be working on some changes and hopefully some updates will start posting soon.

In the meantime, here are some prayer requests that I feel HORRIBLE about not being posted. Please forgive me.

Schroeder Matter

Logan has been listed for a heart transplant. His little heart has too much scarring on it. Please keep him in your prayers, and I have moved his blog button back to the prayer requests list.

I commented on my last update that Jace's blog was gone, and someone left a comment that he is doing so much better that his mom took his page down. Praise Jesus!!! :)

This is Harmonee. She suffers from Biliary Atresia, and had a liver transplant on May 14th. Now, she is having some signs of rejection. Please add her to your prayers!

Thanks again so much, and hope to have some updates soon!!! :)
