Greetings Katherine Followers:
Tonight we have many updates, but first things first. Katherine had to return to surgery yesterday, there was a problem with her incision from her heart surgery that they discovered.  Once they made this correction, she is taking baby steps to improve. They have Katherine off all medication except her BP medicines.  She is still sedated, but not so much. Tonight Tim asked if he knew who she was when she opened her eyes and she shook her head yes.  They have been taking her off the vent some but she is still struggling.  The nurse asked her was she having a hard time breathing and she shook her head.  
Truly our prayers are being heard.  This is more than she has been able to do in sometime. Again, this is baby steps.
Tim, Greg & Buddy are there this weekend.  
Keep those Prayers pushing. Our God is an awesome God!!
Have a good weekend!!!

Thankful Thursday

Good Evening Katherine Followers,
A couple of quick things.  Steve and his girlfriend are in GA and made in in time to be with Candy's father.  Tim is in route from KY and should get there on Friday.  Greg & Sherry will be coming on Friday.....
They are looking to move Katherine to Regency Hospital, which is located on St. Dominic's in Jackson, MS.  The hopefully will happen in the next week or so.  We need your prayers for a door to open and for her to be admitted to this facility. 
Thank you for the ones that have sent me pictures to post on this site.  It's wonderful.   You are wonderful family and friends and we appreciate you more than you can know.
We will leave you with this quote: Language of Letting Go:
The Good in Step Ten

Step Ten says: "Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it." It does not suggest that we ignore what is right in our life. It says we continue to take a personal inventory and keep a focus on ourselves.

When we take an inventory, we will want to look for many things. We can search out feelings that need our attention. We can look for low self-esteem creeping back in. We can look for old ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving. We can look for mistakes that need correcting.

But a critical part of our inventory can focus on what we're doing right and on all that is good around us.

Part of our codependency is an obsessive focus on what's wrong and what we might be doing wrong - real or imagined. In recovery we're learning to focus on what's right.

Look fearlessly, with a loving, positive eye. What did you do right today? Did you behave differently today than you would have a year ago? Did you reach out to someone and allow yourself to be vulnerable? You can compliment yourself for that.

Did you have a bad day but dealt effectively with it? Did you practice gratitude or acceptance? Did you take a risk, own your power, or set a boundary? Did you take responsibility for yourself in a way that you might not have before?

Did you take time for prayer or meditation? Did you trust God? Did you let someone do something for you?

Even on our worst days, we can find one thing we did right. We can find something to feel hopeful about. We can find something to look forward to. We can focus realistically on visions of what can be.

God, help me let go of my need to stay immersed in negativity. I can change the energy in my environment and myself from negative to positive. I will affirm the good until it sinks in and feels real. I will also strive to find one quality that I like about someone else who's important to me, and I will take the risk of telling him or her that.
