My Wonderful Friends

This week has been such a trial for me. In my previous post you'll remember I told you I was urinating blood well I went to the doctor and had a stat CT done he was checking for kidney stones. Well, the results came back negative no stones, but I'm still bleeding. The words bladder cancer were mentioned, but I need further tests. I am hoping it is only stress related. I look like death warmed over dark circles under my eyes and now I can not stop shaking. I was eating, but after the text conversation with HER, since he won't talk to me at all, I stopped eating again. She was very rude and mean to me over something she should not be involved in. The good news is he has decided to only have visitation with my son and I get custody. The bad news he wants the house, which I was ready to deal on until SHE got nasty with me. We are going to try a dissolution, but I can't see my attorney until next Tuesday. And then it means we must agree on everything. As long as I have my kids I'll be OK.

On to many Thank you's.

This beautiful inspirational card was sent by Linda Thank you so much it was so kind of you to send it my son also thought so to. P.S. I tried to email you, but my email addy for you isn't working.

This stitchery was just what I needed to see each and every day. It is still my motto. Thank you so much Kimberly it was so sweet of you.

Justina was so kind to send me this book. The awesome thing is her aunt helped write it and even signed it. I have only read a couple pages, but so far I love the way it is written.

This is where things get odd with the bracelet. Each and every bead on this bracelet has a meaning. It is about the life and death of Jesus and how much he cares for us. This bracelet was given to me by the CT tech at the hospital. She noticed that I wear bead bracelets and she took off her wrist and said I think you need this more than me. She had made it herself. She didn't know me from anyone else she just gave me a hug and the bracelet.

Then as I sat at the table telling my Mom about the bracelet she started to giggle. She said I need to show you something. She pulls the key chain from her purse and said a lady that she and my dad have talked to at Wendy's restaurant before saw them that day and talked with her at lunch. She is a member of a local church and does RAK. She handed my Mom the key chain and said give this to someone who needs it. So guess who has it. I know that you are all praying for us and I can see that it is working as things are getting easier. Thank you so much everyone.

You are in my prayers...Everyone involved is in my prayers.
I know your motto is Day by Day...I love that. Mine is "Let Go and Let God" On bad days you can hear me say out loud-"Lord, I can't handle this so I am letting go of what is out of my control and giving it to you." I always think he must say back, "Thank you Robin for FINALLY getting out of my way so I can get down to business!" LOL!
Let us know as soon as you find out about what is going on with your health...In the mean time we will pray for a miracle for you over here in Washington. :)

So sorry about the heartache, but isn't it amazing to see the hand of a loving Heavenly Father in your life. What an inspirational post to see that you have been the recipient of such goodness. You more than deserve it. Please email me your address when you have a minute--you're still in my thoughts, too...and not just at the grocery store---HEEHEEHHEE!! Hugs---Julie

Hang in there - we are all thinking about and it seems clear to me that God is watching out for you, although sometimes I know you must feel very alone. Try to take care of yourself as best you can - if you can't eat, make smoothies and sip them. Whatever it takes, you know?
