First I wanted to tell you UNCLE ABE is doing just fine.  He had his surgery and this time they were able to get rid of that rock in his kidney. My momma collects rocks but hers told me this is not the kind of stone people want to collect.  He is off the rest of the week, so he can rest up and start to feel better. Thank you friends for all your good thoughts and prayers.

My Momma has another request also.  It is a sad, heartbreaking request but it is a simple request.  My Momma has a dear friend named Cindy that she has had since Kindergarten.  They have shared many happy and sad memories as longtime friends often do.  They were military wives together, and raised their kids together.  Cindy and my Momma have very different personalities but in some ways similar ones also.  (Cindy is the one who brought Margaret into our lives.....grrrr....)

My Momma found out that Cindy was going to get to be a grandma next month.  We were all so excited.  See Cindy got to be a grandma 13 years ago the same time my Momma did for the first time, but her little grandgirl went to live in heaven.  Cindys daughter has struggled with that loss for several years now, and only a few years ago started to enjoy the light in the world.  And then they found out they were having a little boy.  Things were going just wonderful, and he was going to be born next month.

Last Friday Cindy's girls blood pressure went way to high but the Dr. said hers was okay and put her on some medicine.  Cindy and her girl finished up the nursery on Sunday cos they just knew Peyton was going to arrive a little early.  Well he did.   Sunday night he decided he would be born, and both Peyton and his momma was in critical condition.

Peyton lived for a moment, just enough time to tell Grandma Cindy how much he loved her, then his sister took him by the hand and he went up to heaven.  His momma is still not doing very well physically nor emotionally.  Cindy of course is staying strong for the whole world cos that is her way.

Would you please keep her family in your prayers today, because I believe it will help make even a small difference in their strength that they will need this week.

I am so blessed to have you all as our friends.
Stella Rose's and Momma
