A Short Update

Thought I would give a short update on my daughter. Tomorrow around 9:00 AM CST she will have back surgery again. The last MRI showed that disk had herniated and is pressing the nerve really bad is what is causing all that pain. Therefore the doc will have to clean all that out. Ken will take her and be with her as I am unable to go. She will be laying down in the backseat of the car and I can't sit that long. I would appreciate more prayers and good thoughts that you all will send her way if you will please. Thanks again in advance.

The house finches have shown up again and the Goldfinches seem to have thinned out a lot.

 House finch 5-2-09

Have a blessed evening everybody, Helen


  1. That is one thing we have in Ohio. I recognize those house finches for sure. They played havoc with my hanging baskets on the porch for years. They would build their nests in them every spring.

    Your daughter will be in my thoughts and prayers as she goes through yet another surgery.

  2. Will be thinking of Mira and praying for the best. It sorta sounds like they know what is causing the pain, I am not familiar witht he back too much I just know thoughts of it scare me. But with the Lord and the Dr. this should help tremendiously.
    Lovy y'all,
    Jack & Sherry
    OH! I love the picture! The color is great.

  3. Oh Helen,
    I'm so sorry that she has to go through this yet again. I will be keeping you all in my thoughts & prayers. Please let us know how she does.
