My best friend passed away December 10th at 4:28 a.m., with me holding her hand as I had promised her.
Please pray for her daughter, Jazmine Rose, who is only 12 years old. Also, her husband, Robert.

I am not sure what my days are going to hold....Mel and I talked everyday on the phone. I miss her so very much, my heart aches beyond belief.

I love ya girlie.....all the way to heaven and back.

Zoe's appt. went ok, they would not give her the H1N1 booster because she was so sick. She has been put on 3 weeks of Bactrim. She is coughing a little less today and has more energy. Hopefully she is on the road to recovery.
Mel (my bestfriend) is doing the same. Her CO2 level got to be 81 the day after she went on the Bi-Pap, but now it is back up to 88, using the Bi-Pap. I am flying to New York tomorrow, a very generous couple has bought me my tickets and hotel near the hospital. Our oldest daughter, Tara, is on her way to our house right now to take care of Zoe while I am gone and Scott is at work. I couldn't make this trip if it wasn't for these angelic people in my life (the couple, my husband-Scott, Tara). People that know and love Mel, are hoping and praying that me being by her side will help her in some small way.
Please pray for Mel, Zoe and my family to be well while I am gone.

The last couple of days have been rough.
Zoe woke up in the middle of the night Tuesday with so much mucus in her throat, she was constantly choking. She has a really bad sore throat, runny, stuffy nose and a wet gunky cough. She was already scheduled to go to clinic tomorrow for her H1N1 booster, so, I'll let them take a peek at her then to see if they want to do antibiotics. We have had such a long stretch without her being sick.
My bestfriend has been in the hospital for 2 weeks now with a CF exasperation. She is not moving forward, but backwards. For the first time ever in her life, she was put on the Bi-Pap machine to help her with her breathing. Her CO2 level was 92. Normal is in the 20's-30's. She can't talk while on the machine, so she has her social worker calling me to give me updates. Thank God. I'd be going insane without knowing how she is doing.
It is so hard, being so far away (she lives in NY) and not being able to do anything. I have to admit I've been pretty scared about losing her. Please join us in prayers for her to make a turn around.
Another sweet, young, lady with CF passed yesterday. She was a mother to a little 6 year old boy. She died from complications with her CF from getting H1N1. Her name was Ginger, Gingerloveslife, was her user name for She loved life. Please pray for her family, husband, and son.
Well, a blog of yucky news. Sorry, but sometimes this is what it's like.
