Need Some Prayer Here

I know we could all use a little prayer but tonight I'm asking for specific prayer for my dad, Ken Rabenold, who is going in the hospital on Monday morning to have a biopsy taken via endoscopy of his lungs.

He had a PET Scan several weeks ago which didn't tell the doctors for sure if he has cancer, so they say, even tho it lite up~which was my understanding that if it does, it means it's cancer. Plus there are some black spots on inside his chest or in his lungs that they don't know what it is. So they are doing the biopsy to find out what it is.

If they discover it's cancer or something they can remove, they will be staffed to remove it and he will be in the hospital for awhile.

I worry since his lungs are in very bad shape that he might contact pneumonia which would be very bad for him. This is all so hard for him too because at 82, last month he thought he was fine, except a little dizzy when he stood up. Then to go into the ER for that and be admitted and hospitalized for over a week with all kinds of tubes in you and medications and then being sent home with 8 medications and an oxygen system and breathing treatments etc. is quite scarey!!! His life as it was will probably never be again. He wasn't taking any prescribed medications before this and the doctors say that he is in excellent shape except for his bad lungs.

This place of employment is still open..sad, I wonder how many people that have worked in places like this, have problems with their bodies because no one knew that the chemicals they were dealing with was poisonous to them.

So if you belong to a Church group, or prayer group or just pray period, please remember my father this Sunday or when you pray. I appreciate it.

On another note, have you seen my newest designs on Etsy? If not here's a look at some of my newest offerings

These are great for hanging on your Easter/Spring trees or as package tie ons for a gift. They are really popular sellers. Another great addition is this adorable rabbit

Isn't she adorable? Told you she was. You can reach them by clicking HERE

Then I have several Valentine ladies on ebay which go off tomorrow. There are two heart shaped head one and a great primitive angel cherub angel too. Here's a sampling:

All are at starting bids which are a great deal for these designs. Be sure to check them out while there's still time.

I'm working on lots of new Spring designs. If there's something you'd like to see me design, just let me know and we'll see what I can do.

Today my daughter and I were in Michael's looking for some feathers for the new earrings and hair clips she's going to make for Etsy, anyways, there was a Somerset Life magazine there and I was browsing to see if there was anything I liked in it. Lo and behold on page 11 is a photo of my frog and dolls!! Do you know how that makes you feel?? Words can't describe when you aren't aware that you are published. Reason why I didn't know was because Jenny Doh and a photographer from the magazine attended the last Glitterfest show that I sold at in October in Santa Ana, California. I acknowledged them and never thought anything of it. Well in this issue they did a cool article on Glitterfest and featured my frog and dolls as part of the show. How cool!!!! Great photo too ladies!!! yahoo! Thanks girls!!!

This same frog will be featured in the Spring PRIMS magazine too. I am one lucky girl!!!! So today was a good day! Thanks for sharing it with me.

Hi Sharon,
I'm sorry to read of your dad's condition. Praying for him and your family.
Love the little bunny in blue. Congrats on being in the mag. I'd be on cloud nine too!
Have a great Sunday.
Prim Blessings,

Wishing your father the best possible healing.
Lovely dolls, it's strange the way so many magazines don't let you know when they feature your items.
