Update on Callie

Praying for Callie

 Callie went to the  pediatric neurologist on Friday..  She has  Juvenile  Epsilepsy
It is not the kind , that she will out grow. She  will have  to take meds
the rest of her life. They have started her on  these. and will work to
get them  regulated.  She is still having seizures at night.  She has 3 types
of seizures. They are:
1- The convulsive type-  which is the bad ones. like she had last Thursday, when she
quit breathing and required CPR.
2- Myoclonic Seizures-  this is where she has the jerking/spasm on the right
side of her body.
3-small seizures  [during her wake hours]. that only last 8-10 seconds.  The doctor
said. she nor anyone else  would notice it. But,  she is doing this so  much,
and  has been for a long time. that is why she is always so tired, and needs

 We are very sad, that  she has to deal with this , for the rest of her life. But, are
so thankful , that it is treatable with medicine. We know, the  outcome,
could have been so much worse.

I want to say a special thank you to all my blog friends. I thank you so much
for  all your prayers and thoughts. May God bless each of you.

ps.. went by  to see her after church.. she is still sleeping a lot, and  not
feeling well.. Hope the medicine gets regulated, and she feels better soon.

Skirts/Tees for the Twins [and a few other sewing projects -completed]

Ashlee Gail

 I made the girls a  monogrammed  pocket
 for a RTW t-shirt. I had lots of  chevron fabric
left, so I make them  a simple a-line skirt.
They both like them, they said,  they look
like big girls.ha

Amy Grace

Disney princess pillowcase dress for Elly.

I was asked to make this Doc McStuffin
a-line dress for a little girl. It was super easy
to make.  It has one button in the back..  I
embroidered "Doc McStuffin" on
the yoke.. This little girl  LOVES this cartoon.

When my life settles again, I have lots of sewing
for me, planned. Happy sewing to each of you,
and again thanks for your prayers for  Callie.
Will update when we know something.

Update on Callie

Update on Callie:

Callie's hand/arm is having tremors/shaking, when she is asleep.. She is very tired and is sleeping  most of the time.  She is complaining of   being dizzy and  her
head feeling funny. She says , she is so tired.  Her leg gave way today and she fell. She told her mom, she was just dizzy ...

The Children's Hospital in Memphis called today. She has an appointment
Friday morning. [They were not happy that our local hospital, did not bring
her on, last Thursday when this happened---me too!!}

She has an EEG scheduled for Friday..

Please pray for  her..

I really appreciate all of your prayers.. Such wonderful/sweet friends..

Prayers for Callie


                                                                   Prayers for Callie

                    Callie is our 13 yr old granddaughter. She is a very sweet and lovely
                    girl. Just a joy to our lives.

                   On Thursday night, I got the worse call , that a grandparent could imagine.
                   Cindy called, and when I answered the phone.... All I could hear was,
                   screaming and crying,  She said," Mama, please pray, Tell Daddy to
                   pray... some thing is wrong with Callie, I don't know what?, " I was hysterical and ask
                   " what is wrong?". the phone went dead..  A few minutes later, it rang.
                   She screamed," Oh Mama,  Callie is not breathing, Stanley is doing CPR,
                   and the ambulance is on its way."   I have never felt such terror, in my life.
                   When we got there,  She was being loaded on the  ambulance.

                  After many test,  The doctors said, she had  a seizure.[she has never          
                  had seizures or no one in our family]. She stopped breathing, not sure
                   why? They have called a pediatric neurosurgeon
                  at Lebourner Childrens  Hospital in Memphis, Tn., to get her an appointment
                 .Cindy  is scared to go to sleep, scared to leave her in a room alone, It is terrifying.

                  She seems to be doing fine now..  Other than when, she goes to sleep,
                  her hands are jerking??? Not sure what is going on?

                  I know that God is in control, and He is with her, I  pray for strength \
                  and courage to trust Him and know that He will take care of our sweet

                 Please remember Callie, when you pray..

The Place I Call Home

Turbon Lily
Kenny found one bulb, while deer hunting.Brought it home
and  took such great care of it.. It has multiplied  and now
there are 8 plants.. They bring us such beauty to look at.

Flowers are blooming.. All the wonderful rain and cool summer
have been great..

This is what I call- Home!!!

The red bench, is a  nice little seat...Just to take a seat,
and look around !!!

These lilies are blooming around the bird bath too.
The lonely play center,, seems to be calling some
sweet little kids to come play..[How sad, that my grandkids
have outgrown it. But, when Papa built it for them, quiet
a few years ago, they loved it..]

Kitchen got a small facelift....New counter tops, and  a new floor..

I   have sewed /embroidered some during the month of July,
 however, have not posted any thing.. I have had internet
 problems ,all month. Hopefully , it is fixed now, and I will get
 some things posted..
