First I want to thank each and everyone of you who have been thinking and praying for my family!! It was been a really rough week...but I am happy to say it is all over!! The doctors have finally figured out what is causing all of my husbands heart problems...a hyper thyroid!! Can you believe that one little tiny gland can cause so many problems!! It was making his heart work 2-3 times harder than it should!! I am so thankful that this is finally over...yes we have lots of follow-ups and appointments with specialists, but at least they know what it is!! He is finally home from the hospital too...which is another wonderful blessing!! So again, thank you all of you for your love and support!!!

MIA and prayers!!

Hello everyone!!
I just wanted to let you all know that I will be MIA for awhile...not really positive on how long it will be actually! My hubby has been in the hospital since early Wednesday with some really serious heart problems!! They are still running lots and lots of tests to figure out exactly what is wrong!!
I ask if you could pray for him and my family these next couple days...and even for the doctors so we can get this taken care of and get him better!!
Thank you all and I will be back as soon as I can!!
