I have to say that those were some powerful prayers being said. She certainly isn't cured, because any moving around has her gasping and wheezing, but as long as she lies down she is fine. As a result, the hospital let her go yesterday, and Christmas is back on at Casa Scruffy! Thank you all so much for your prayers, and I'm sure that she will start improving soon. At least I can see her now without having to put on a hazmat suit.... If I'm not back on in the meantime, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of Nauvoo (past and present) from a reunited Scruffy clan xxx

I am so sorry to hear that she is going through this. It is great news that she is home. We will continue to offer prayers for her recovery.

Scruffy, how is Sister Scruffy doing? I hope she’s continued to mend well. The flu is especially wicked here this year & it seems half the people I know have had it. I may have just had it, or perhaps it was a bad cold, but it was an unpleasant couple of weeks. Anyone with pneumonia, bronchitis, or other nasty respiratory ailments has my sympathy. :(

If anyone is ailing that I don’t know about, you’ll be in my prayers as “Sick Nauvoodle.” I know the Lord will know who that is.

All of California would appreciate any spare prayers. Nature bashed us again. The major wildfire in Ventura County that began in early December, & became the largest ever in California, was finally put under total containment a few days ago. New Year’s weekend & we’re fighting wildfires  ::) . We hadn’t had huge rainstorms in a few weeks, but then one moved over the entire state over the last two days, with 7-10 inches of rain in some places. And because the wildfires in Ventura County (near Santa Barbara, north of Los Angeles, for those who don’t know California) were so recent, there hasn’t been new plant growth to replace what was burned, & the soil is in bad shape, & there’s ash & loose fire debris instead of buildings on foundations, & you name it, overall conditions were ripe for disaster. And it happened last night while folks were asleep – like in Santa Rosa where the wildfire sprang up in the middle of the night & dozens of people never had a chance. IIRC, Santa Barbara or Ventura county was where Jacaré used to live; I don’t remember which town.

At least 13 people are dead. More probably, once the searches are complete. Any prayers may help people needing help or needing comfort.

Hi Curelom,

Sorry to see that things aren't improving for California in the new year. Mrs Scruffy is feeling a lot better, but her peak flow is poor still. Her normal is 420 (mine is 650), and she has been told that if she drops below 200 she needs to go to hospital. She is consistently between 200 and 250, dipping below 200 in the evenings until she uses an inhaler. As long as it comes back above 200 after the inhaler, I'm not insisting on an ambulance, but at the slightest hint that it isn't climbing again, she'll be off to hospital again. For the first couple of nights there last time, they were waking her every 2-3 hours throughout the night to nebulise her; that shows how serious it was. She's beyond that but isn't fully right. She insisted on going back to work as a primary school teacher today, so I have no idea how that will work out but I suspect not well. As long as she makes it home, though, we're golden.

Scruffy...such a worry indeed. You have my prayers.

Sometime back, because I feel like the captain of a tiny ship on really rough seas with no crew, I started a prayer group on facebook ( strictly private) to help give strength to my little voice as I pray my kids into adulthood.
I post updates periodically when I feel a situation is bigger than one mama prayer...so here is the last post for those who are not on Facebook:

I just got off the phone with a very teary unhappy Sweet pea. She has not been happy in London and it is going downhill, in spite of working with distinction at the university. I sensed something was going on at Christmas and it's obvious she's even lost weight. I was just waiting for her to open up. and boyhowdy, she called. after crying on a professors shoulder and being told to call mom. I was able to cheer her up at least for now.
Our GP here refuses to send her to an endocrinologist. I am positive having a full work up will show she has one of the several hormone problems that our women display.
It might not be an easy fix but maybe she will get some relief.
She is in the process of intake for a London GP. Already the intake nurse was surprised she's never had a thyroid test. In any case she has access to another GP practice for 6 months that might finally figure out a medical intervention so she can live the rest of her life .
So help me pray that she gets help, that she gets answers, that her London medicos are sharp gifted and competent.
oh and that I do not completely become an insomniac.
any spare prayer is so appreciated...
