A Doctor's Appt and a Prayer

The day after Thanksgiving Anna smashed her finger in a door at church. Smashed it flat. It was ugly. It bruised her nail really bad.

It was her middle finger and if you asked to see her hurt finger she would show you. Just like you think she would show you her middle finger! Poor naive girl, still doesn't know why people were laughing.

Well, the nail has been coming off slowly. Very slowly. But the last couple of days it has started to come off of one side, and has been bothering her. And me. And now, maybe you.

Today, D&D, Anna & I were headed to Little Rock for an check-up appointment on Daniel's arm. Anna yells from the back of the van, "my finger is bleeding!!!"

I had had enough. I called the doctors office, told them the problem and get this. They said to come on in. Can you believe it?? So, we stopped by the doctor's office for what I thought would be a 5-10 minute visit. It was a 50 minute visit. But the nail is off now. Thank heavens! It looks bad, but at least its gone.

We found out that Daniel's arm is healing. We found that out after waiting in the waiting room for an hour and a half and visiting with the doctor for two minutes. 2 MINUTES!! I drove an hour and a half, sat in the waiting room for an hour and a half and saw the doctor for 2 minutes, and then drove an hour and a half back home. REALLY?????!!!

Ok, enough of me.....

I have read this blog off and on for a while, she is creative and inspirational. Down to earth and endearing. Tuesday she had a stroke while exercising. She is 38 and has two daughters, 12 and 9. She has had two operations, one to relieve the pressure in her brain. She has not woken up. Please pray for Joanne. I know some of us stalk blogs. I know some of you stalk blogs, Stacy!! I stalk Joanne's blog, and I wake up praying for her. Please join me.

Yes, I stalk her blog too. I have been praying for Joann and so concerned about her children being homeschooled and then having to enroll in school. I am going to have to quit this blog stalking it is to stressful. Ha! Loved the post about Samuel. Pray that the Lord gives my children a thorn in their side to keep them on the straight and narrow all the time. I think that thorn is ME! Looking forward to Beth Moore. Stacy
