OUR NEW BABY GIRL and Please Pray For My Friend, Joanne and Update on Ken

We have a 
NEW BABY GIRL
and I will share more about her later this week.
I will tell you today that she was born yesterday.
She is pink and perfect.
Mimi has asked for a day or two to have her
all to herself before she shares her with
the world.
Is this the cutest little skirt/slip ever?
Meanwhile,
I have a favor to ask of you.
This is one of those people that never
asks for ANYTHING for herself...
so....if she asks...
you can bet 
SHE NEEDS PRAYER.
Her name is Joanne 
and her blog is

Here is her plea:
You know how much pain I must be in if I am turning to the blogging world for help, it's just not how I roll.  I pray for everyone but rarely, rarely do I ask.  I am now and I am hoping you can help me.  A few years ago, many years ago, I was hurt in an accident that left a section of my spine crushed and after much rehab I was able to recover.  A few weeks ago I had a stress fracture in my spine in the same spot as in years before.  I have been so completely incapacitated by all of this.  Unable to get any relief from the pain, be it hot/cold, muscle relaxers or even narcotic pain meds.  I am completely bed ridden and need help to get to the restroom, bathe, and fix meals.  I am at my wit's end.  What I need most is prayers.  Prayers for healing light and life to be sent to the heavens for a relief of this pain and a road back to normal.  I just don't know what to do, where else to turn except to my bloggy friends.  Please hear my cries.  love you.

And - the other day I asked for prayers for 
He continues to be in a serious medical condition
and still needs prayers.
They are still searching for answers and they are
holding onto hope while waiting for test outcomes.
Please pray for both of these people...
oh- AND our NEW BABY GIRL-
Can't WAIT to share some pictures of her with all of you.
Bear with me this week- I will be a busy Nana with
two little guys and a Mama that had an emergency C- Section.
Thanks- You are THE BEST...
THE BEST....
Well, right next to NEW BABY GIRL!!!
