Pray Request

My youngest daughter, Kristin, (22), has been admitted into the hospital for the second time this week. Something is wrong with her pancreas. After the first admitting we went and picked up "Zoey" while she waited to see a GI specialist. Last night she was admitted again in incredible pain. I decided to share this with all of you to ask for your prayers for Kristin, Michael, and of course little Zoey. If you don't hear from me it is because I cannot right know worry about deadlines, sewing, or my own fun. I hope you all understand!

Back to school tomorrow for hubby and David. I'll find something…
