    I too need more prayers. I know this is the place I can come to, I too believe in the power of prayer. My godchild's baby was born on Thursday, the long awaited arrival, the joy during a time of the birth of a new baby, a boy. We had a baby shower for her a month ago. Only to have problems develop within 24 hours. He wasn't feeding, and wasn't breathing properly. They have transferred him to the best hospital in the area, will have to have some sort of surgery, we are not clear exactly what the problem is. He will undergo all sorts of tests to ensure there isn't anything else wrong. He is on a feeding tube right now. Parents are the only ones allowed at the hospital. Its an hour away, but a friend and myself will be making the trip to try and give her support.

    She is communicating by text messages to her family, who relay the info to us, which none of it makes any sense.

    She is beside herself, she's a mess, and can't stand looking at her new baby hooked up to so many tubes. Her wonderful husband is taking right over. She needs the support of her family and prayers. Thanks to all.
    Prayers are going out for you and your family as well.

    Thanks everyone for the prayers. Its very much appreciated.

    An update, he was examined by a specialist yesterday who says one of his nostrils is smaller than the other. He has had a cat scan and ultra sound, and they think he might have a cyst or polyp in his nasal passage-way which might be treated by a steroid spray. That's all I know at the moment. We were told not to make the trip, we were have rain/wind storm all day/weekend, we can't see the baby, they won't allow anyone, even the grandparents, just the parents, and they didn't want us driving in that. Hopefully we can get there next weekend.

    Re: Talk about your troubles

    I have talked about my sister here a few times before. A few months ago, my hours at work were drastically reduced so a friend of the family hooked me up with an interview for a job in the education field. My sister has a full time job and hates it. When I talked to her today, I told her that I am in the running for the position and she was fuming mad. She called our family friend and left a message that she wants to talk to him regarding the open position because she is interested in it. She got off the phone and told me that she doesn't mind taking me on as competition but could tell that I was intimidated by her. I stared at her blankly. Then she threatened to ruin me and walked away. She's doing her best Na'Onka impersonation, I suppose.

    Sorry to hear that your sister is so over the top angry about this! Life is hard enough without those "nearest and dearest" turning into your arch enemy!!

    RealityLovesMe -- I've read some of your earlier posts about the troubles you have with your sister. I give you this old saying: "Blood is not thicker than water." I hope you will do what you can to protect yourself against this woman. She obviously is out to mess up your life. Good luck!! (P.S. I don't get along with my sister either, so I can relate to your distress!!)

    Re: Talk about your troubles

    just because someone is related by blood, does not mean they need to be in a persons life. If they are toxic they should be erased from your life. I've done it. I know people that have done it to siblings, parents, cousins, etc.

    I have come to understand that the phrase "familiarity breeds contempt" can just as easily apply to a relative as it does to a non-relative. I can be related to you, but I do better not having to much personal interaction with you.....family, or not.

    I've also got the "sister issue", and we've just started to communicate (occasionally, by email) just lately, after about 6 years of no contact. I think I will be keeping the lines open, but the buffer distance will remain intact. The problem seems to be that it makes OTHER people uncomfortable. And that would be THEIR problem, not mine....so I will let THEM deal with it!
