THE ONLY THING I CAN THINK ABOUT TONIGHT

Thursday, January 13, 2011

I have a blog friend that many of you will  know….but for those that don’t, please add her to your prayer list, your churches prayer list…send her name to anyone who prays. 
Just do what you would want others to do if this was you or your loved one.
  I have only met Joanne twice, both times at a Beth Moore event in San Antonio.  I cannot remember what I had on yesterday nor anyone I was with, but I still remember the first time I saw her and exactly what she had on.  She had her own style.  She had the greatest smile.  As I have followed her blog, I have realized what a great Mom and Wife she is.  Shes a wonderful cook, a runner, a reader (which I love), just one of those gals you wished you lived next door to.Joanne and family
Her name is Joanne Heim from The Simple Wife!
She is fighting for her life right now in a Colorado hospital!   Fighting hard but the news has not been good.  She was on her treadmill two days ago, 38 years old, and collapsed.  She was found by her daughter.  She had a blood clot in her brain which led to a stroke and  has had two surgeries in two days.  The last surgery to go in and remove part of the skull to allow for the swelling. I would guess something similar to Gabby Gifford's.  The MRI does not look good,  a poor prognosis, something I heard a lot about three months ago when Jack had a stroke.  I know there are Miracles…I have one sitting across the room from me.  I grabbed these pictures off her site as it is always easier to pray when I have a face and a family.

Joanne and kids
Joanne needs a miracle…please pray with me for one.  Again it reminds us how fragile life is

That is so sad, and I know how much this shatters your heart. It does the same thing to me whenever I hear someone has tongue cancer.
Praying for a miracle.
Hugs

Hi Terea:

I live close to Dallas and saw your blog when Jack was in Baylor and prayed for him. I am also praying for Joanne, saw it at Lisa's blog. Of all the people to encourage them, it would be you 2...
