I know several of you 
Laurie's blog
You can find her blog here.

They flew her husband
to another city for
emergency surgery.

Please pray for the
Doctors' hands as they
perform an angioplasty.
He has had some complications
along the way which makes
the surgery even more touchy.

Please pray for Garry's
outcome-that he will be
returned to good health.

And, please pray for
Pray for her peace of mind
and that she has some
serenity during the surgery
and in the hours and days
that follow.

Please pray for our
Little Lulu.
She has been to the hospital
twice this week
and has a lung infection
and some bronchial issues.
She is having a hard time
breathing and eating
 or drinking and
feels sick and miserable.
She came to stay with
Nana and Papa
for a couple of quiet days
where there is not a
lot of commotion from
sisters and family life
in general.
Please offer up a prayer
for this very
good little girl.
Her birthday is coming up
on Wednesday
and we are hoping she
feels better by then.

Thank you so much.
I do believe in prayer.
I do believe in you.
I do believe.
I do.

Yes, I follow Laurie's blog and have been keeping her and Garry in my prayers.
I will pray for Lulu too, I know how awful she must be feeling because that is something I am predisposed to getting, and it is rotten. I do hope she is feeling much better in time for her birthday.

Mark said...

Nonnie said...

Thank you for posting this. I had somehow missed out on exactly what and when Laurie's husband Gary was having surgery. Praying for a good outcome on that and the peace of God over both of them.

Also for Lulu. I so sympathize with her. I have had pneumonia several times and remember well the agony of not being able to breathe. God bless her and Happy Birthday to her. Our granddaughter's birthday is alsonon Wednesday.

Diana, Im praying for Laurie and Lulu too! I sure hope everything turns out ok for everyone!

Maria Elena said...

Praying for Laurie and her husband for a quick recovery and good health. Also for Lulu. My heart goes out to her. It is so hard when the kids get sick. Happy early birthday to Lulu!

andrea@townandprairie said...

O my. Sometimes it seems the whole world is caving in. Poor little girl...lung issues take a while to clear up. She may not feel better for a month or so. I'm assuming she has asthma, too, being a multiple? I just got over horrible bronchitis this spring and I had it two months and with the humidity I thought I would nearly choke when I went outside. And Laurie's husband, how frightening. Angioplast is a common procedure, but it is also very very delicate and dangerous. Jesus, please step in here and intervene and make these troubles go away. Bless these people with your healing love and help them overcome their illnesses. Protect them from harm! Amen !

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Oh no, I really hope everything turns out okay for Laurie's husband. Poor LuLu; I hope she is feeling better soon, Diana. I'll have everyone in my thoughts and prayers.

Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. said...

Seems like so many people are going through difficulties right now. Prayers and best wishes to all!

Shirley said...

Hi Diana, I will be praying for Laurie and Garry along with your Lulu. Hopefully Lulu will feel like celebrating her birthday. Then does school also start this week for her. Take care Hugs from your Missouri Friend.

Gretchen said...

I will happily add Laurie's husband to my prayers. I'll also pray for little Lulu. What a tough thing for a little girl to go through, especially with school starting soon.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Certainly will remember both. Sure hope Laurie's husband does well. I feel bad for your little one. Hope she gets better quickly.

Geneva said...

I believe too, and just whispered a prayer for Laurie, Garry & Lulu. It's so wonderful that Lulu could come and spend time with her Nana & Papa while she's trying to feel better. Wishing her a very Happy Birthday on Wednesday. Thank you for reaching out for prayer...I can't imagine a greater expression of love.

Diann, I just got home from the dentist with Bob.
Sorry to be so late getting here. I am praying as I am typing. I had no idea Lulu was so sick when I wrote to you yesterday. I am so sorry. She is a precious little girl. Praying for her to get results quickly and bounce back to health . I know her nana is taking very good care of her. I am so glad you are able to care for her. There is a reason you are home now.
I pray that Garry and Laurie will have a great outcome and that Garry will get relief and Laurie will be comforted.
Blessings, Ginger

Donna said...

My Dear friend,

I will certain pray for little Lulu, and for her health. That she be feeling better for her birthday, mostly that this affliction be lifted from her little body. There really is nothing worse than not being able to breath properly. May our Heavenly Father cover her with His love and surround her with Angels, lifting her, and heal her from the top of her little head to her tippy toes. Bless you, Sweet Lulu!

I will also pray for Laurie and for her husband, Garry. My prayer list has been growing so quickly and is so long these days - that old devil certainly prowling around causing problems!

God bless you Diana,

Kay G. said...

Dear Diana,
Just to say hope Lulu is better soon. I had double pneumonia when I was just her age and was in the hospital for weeks and then came home and was so weak, I could hardly move. I recovered and have been as healthy as a horse since then. I am wishing the same strong health for your little one.
Will go to Laurie's blog now, praying for her and Garry.
