Needing Prayers

We have known for a while that Zach's grandfather isn't doing to well; there are alot of details that I am unsure of so I will leave out the "technical" terms. He has been in and out of the hospital for weeks now...I haven't mentioned it on here yet because if you know my husband you know he does not like being confronted about situations like this...when people tell him sweet things or ask about Poppee it makes him feel uncomfortable...men don't handle emotions well sometimes...

However, I must tell my bloggers now, and I need to ask for prayers....we just got word tonight that his grandfather isn't doing well at all...he needs heart surgery, however they don't believe he will make it through alive...he is drifting in and out of coscienceness and they don't know how much longer he will fight for his life. (This comes as a little shock as we just got word a couple days ago he was doing better and going to a nursing home for rehab...)

We know in our hearts that God is with him during this time, there is no doubt about that...but please pray that whatever happens to Poppee that he's pain free and peaceful...please pray that God is with Zach and his family...until recently when my brother in law moved back to TX, Zach was the only one from his family here...his grandfather and mom, dad, sisters, and other grandparents (all his family...) live in PA...not being able to go up and see Poppee during this time is killing him. Poppee is one of the sweetest men I know--"God Please Be With Poppee"!!!

Zach-"Lucky"-Poppee and Me on our trip to PA last October.

**P.S. if you know Zach PLEASE do not say anything to him at this time, just pray for him...like I mentioned above this is a difficult time for him right now and he doesn't know how to handle the questions when people ask about Poppee...he appriciates it more than anything, really he does!! Just in the meantime direct your questions to me if you are wondering...just pray for him please**

Thank you loves!!!!

Hello,

I have been meaning to get over here and leave you a comment but my goal for today was to try to limit my computer time. Anyhow, I wanted to let you know that I got your comment the other day. I'm so excited that Julie is going to be doing your blog makeover for you. She's awesome! I do believe you are the first one who's gone over to get a makeover since I posted about it on my blog, so that makes you the winner of the free hat! Please let me know if you'd like me to make you a hat, or you'd like to wait until sweet little Baby Pifer is on the way to redeem the free hat! Whatever you'd like to do is fine with me. Just shoot me an email or leave me a comment.

I will be praying for guys this weekend. I'm sorry to hear about Zack's grandfather. Praying that you'll all feel the Lord's presence and that he'll give you the strength you need to get through this.

Hi there

I've just found your blog and wanted to say that your bravery and courage is inspiring.

It sounds like you have been through SO much in the last 3 years.

I look forward to reading more and really hope that your journey has a very happy ending soon.

I also hope that your husband's grandfather will pull through.

Take care, N
