Hey everyone, it's Liz!
I have been so appreciative of all the support from my family, friends, and even random prayer groups or friends of my other friends! Sounds confusing, but it is just neat to know how much people are caring for me!
At first, when the night/morning i found all this out, first thing i thought was, how much longer can i live? Or even just the fact, can i still live? Being all new to this and not having the word get out to a lot of people, i was just so frustrated with God, asking every second, why?!? Now, i never, (still) never listen to the doctors because it is just information i don't need to know. Ya, my blood counts can be low, or anything can be wrong, but like Joe came and said to me on the second night in the hospital; "You believe in God, you believe God was the creator of every single person, do you believe he will heal you, do you believe he has already healed you?
Ya, i do. I have 0% worries and i know with all the prayers, i am put into God's hands, and he has already healed me.:)
Ok now to all the helping out, gifts, etc.. It has been a huge help with all the gifts i have been getting! There hasn't been a day spent bored in the hospital yet. I would like to thank my Aunt Theresa for all the work she has generously done for our family! She is crazy! She will come to visit me during the whole day, then at night, we get all situated and go threw all my gifts and just organize. She also helps out with my mom and keeping up with the house, laundry here, buys me good bed stuff!:) Even the other night, she colored my sisters hair and gave me a pedicure! I love you Aunt Theresa! I would also like to thank everyone who has sent me cards, clothes, lotions, books, etc. they really are what keep me occupied during the days here.
Not trying to sound all demanding or saying you have to do this or as if it is a need, but people are still wanting to get nice, helpful gifts, but just are confused on what to get. I have already stashed up on lotions, word searches, and all these other wonderful gifts! One thing that i feel like we are short of, but are very very helpful, are gift cards. Now i am not saying go get us gifts or anything, but many people are asking and i finally came up with the solution of gift cards! :) Gas cards from speedway are very helpful for my brother and his day trips here to the hospital! Then again, food cards such as, fast food places, chipotle, boston market, BW3's, and Panera, are very helpful too! I kinda get sick of the hospital food! :P
Thank you again! I can't find any way to express how loved and thankful I am to have all the support!
