Thank you, each and every one.  May the new year hold more blessings than trials but most of all, undieing faith.  

Rebecca's about the same, still in Intensive Care, but hanging in there I'm thankful to say.  I'm not telling her about Michael or her great aunt (on 12/22/04) passing on until she's better. She's aware of this great Passions family praying for and cheering her on.

Love,

  Rae

Thank you Rae for keeping us in touch with what has been going on. I'm sure that she will be better soon and that she will be glad to get out of there. Happy New Year!!! I wish you all the best for the new year and I'm glad that the family is still alright.

*hugs and kisses*

I'm still here if you need anything.

Love,
Ladycat

And when you do tell her about Michael? Maybe read a couple of his posts from the archives, I've bumped up a couple today that are favorites of mine, that I believe Becky will connect with,  that are both beautiful and positive.
Hugs, and still lighting a healing candle for all of you.

I am just hoping we see her get out of ICU and into a regular room, not too much to pray for I don't think?  That would certainly be a step forward and she would know that causing even more determination in what I am sure is a tired little lady.

Still lighting my candle for her Rae, and thank you so much for the beautiful writing you sent me, I printed that.

Tears of thankfulness always brim as I read your caring thoughts and prayers for Rebecca.  Yesterday was her oldest son's 16th birthday.  Unfortunately, Rebecca had more problems with a plugged tube for dialysis and they put her on a different machine that operates through a neck vein, I guess.  Husband, Tim, said she was out of it yesterday and had no clue he was even there.  We did our best to help Sam celebrate his birthday. He's a great kid.

She has a lot of love surrounding her from all over the world, and it will continue until she is back home reunited with her family and long after

Let's all have faith that it is always worse before it gets better, and she will. It is hard to see the bad days, but she needs that rest for those good days.  My prayers are of course still with her, and all of you Rae.

This goes out to Becky..
I want you to know that you are in my prayers and not a day will go by that i wont think of you.. I have been through 3 months of hell and with the help of all the prayers I have made it and are going home. Father, I pray that you bring Becky out of ICU and that YOU will direct the doctors minds and hands and that YOU will bring her safely through the mist back to us. In our Lord's name I pray. Amen.

I got a wonderfully encouraging update from Sandgrain regarding Rebecca's progress that I am glad to share with her "family" here.  

Although still in ICU, yesterday, the report on Becca was better.  She got a new male nurse who said he'd been studying her record to better understand her case.  Ramona (was at the hosp.) said he told Rebecca she needed to get out of bed.  Rebecca shook her head, "No."  The nurse got a reclining chair in there and carefully disconnected what was necessary to move her.  He told her each thing he was doing, then carefully lifted her from her bed onto the recliner.  He said it will help circulation in her legs and feet (she can't move them), and put her more in controll of her body.  He said maybe just 10 minutes at first, and she should try to let him elevate her as much as possible to a sitting position.  She had him raise it a couple of times and actually sat in it for about an hour and a half.  This male nurse said he's going to find out today if maybe they can take her off the dialysis.  Her Dr. had said she'd be on it at least 8 -12 weeks and they now have one hooked up to the juggler vein in her neck, as the line in her side plugged up again.  I'll be anxious to learn what happens with that.  She was awake more.  Ramona said Becca said she wants to go home, so they were talking about having a Christmas in July celebration and Ramona said she'd cook her something on the grill.  Asked what she'd like, Rebecca said, " Enchalladas."  Ramona said Rebecca's really scratched up on her eyes and shoulder.  She's peeling all over so I imagine it's itchy and she doesn't realize how hard she's scratching herself.  Tim said when they first rolled her over the skin on her back sort of just stayed on the bed, like when a snake sheds.  This new male nurse will be back with her again this weekend.  Ramona said he has such a gentle positive attitude with changes he feels will be helpful for her esteem as well as physical well being.

Thank you Rae

This is such an encouraging report to read. Maybe that new male nurse is an angel in disguise??  Sounds as if he is coming at Rebecca's problems from a new angle. Hope this is the first of many really positive updates!

I think it's time for another barrage of get well or 'thinking of you' cards for Becky don't you all? If you need her address, please contact Mysteria or myself or her mom, Rae (sandgrain).
