Good news!

Thank you friends for all supports and prayers for Wan. He is cured and healthy as before now! It's great to know that God still gives him another chance to live and have both of his leg normally.

I meet Yah last week as well, sorry for late update... she is getting better as well. She still needs our prayer supports as she has to take some treatment but I think she is so much better! Her daughter needs a new glasses but they don't have enough money to buy one. She used her old glasses that actually has not fit to her face anymore. It was glasses when she was at elementary school and now she is in high school! A few months ago my hubby changed his glasses and we offered her my hubby's previous the glasses' frame. She was happy to receive it. We hope she still can use the lens from her old glasses and use this frame. I will call her to make sure about this.

When You Believe...

Many nights we've prayed
With no proof anyone could hear
In our hearts a hopeful song
We barely understood

Now we are not afraid
Although we know there's much to fear
We were moving mountains long
Before we knew we could

There can be miracles, when you believe
Though hope is frail, it's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles you can achieve
When you believe, somehow you will
You will when you believe

In this time of fear
When prayers so often prove in vain
Hope seems like the summer birds
To swiftly flown away

Yet now I'm standing here
My heart's so full I can't explain
Seeking faith and speaking words
I never thought I'd say

There can be miracles, when you believe
Though hope is frail, it's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles you can achieve
When you believe, somehow you will
You will when you believe

They don't always happen when you ask
And it's easy to give in to your fears
But when you're blinded by your pain
Can't see your way straight through the rain
Small but still, resilient voice
Says love is the relief

There can be miracles
When you believe
Though hope is frail
It's hard to kill
Who know what miracles,you can achieve
When you believe, somehow you will
somehow you will
You will when you believe

You will when you
You will when you believe
Just your heart
Just believe
You will when you believeeeeeeeeeee

What I do all day.. hhh...

Feel need to share so many things but suddenly I feel really tired! Today we have quite a not so good day... still can thank God for His blessings though so this is not supposed to be a bad day at all in God.

I know I've blogged this morning..and now is nite already. My hubby is out of town for working..This morning was just perfect as usual... I sent my Clay to school at 6.40 AM and be back home to blog for a while, looking for some opps. Around 8 AM I was shocked with my new helper, she only been working here for a week, she wants to leave! It's so shocking for us as we think we are doing fine. I have done my best to make her feel at home. I even took her around Bandung, showed her famous building in Bandung and yesterday we went to a mall. I just thought my helpers are human and they need entertainment as well..and this morning I found something so contradictory.. she wanted to leave, that's it. I told her to stay until I find another one to replace her position but she refused to help me.

My friend Stacey said that I shouldn't complaint at all as I still have another maid with me. I know, Stacey.. :-) I try hard not to be sad... still I feel rejected as I try to be nice to her but she doesn't appreciate it at all. One more thing that makes me feel burdened, my maid is so sanguine and she needs a friend to work together. She will be gloomy all day and it really ruins our mood atmosphere. Cliff is crying a lot simply because babies can feel what we feel. Enough writing about maids.

Cliff's nose is wet all day today.. his cough is getting better after a month taking some medicine, but today he has so many mucus on his nose. :-(( My cough is nearly cured, and so is my maid. Clay still has flu a bit. Prayer please... This afternoon I have to meet a friend, so I brought Cliff and my helper to my sister's house. My mom is also there. Cliff refused to take a nap on bed may be because he couldn't breath because of his flu, and my helper, sitting on a chair, carried him while he is sleeping for half hour. I took them home and let my maid has her lunch on the way home. She only ate a bit and she felt dizzy she said. When we arrived home she vomited her lunch. She said she couldn't eat in a moving car... oh well... it's ok.. I gave her a herbal medicine to make her better.. then I have to leave her and Cliff at home to pick Clay from school.

It was raining heavily when I picked Clay up from school. I told Clay about the leaving maid and told Clay to be nice to our other maid. She is not healthy and I bet she feels sad and tired as well, so I asked Clay to be nice to her and to Cliff. I just want to create a good atmosphere at home. I didn't ask Clay how his day was...

That afternoon, I keep asking Clay to be nice and yield to Cliff. Sometimes they just grab each other and that makes mom crazy! I tried to take Cliff for a nap but Cliff doesn't seem to be sleepy at all... while Clay sitting on his desk trying to do his math homework, keep calling me asking to be accompanied. I was not so nice to Clay as I have become frustrated taking care of Cliff. I made him sad. No I don't scold him, I just was not smile and encouraging. Clay only did half of his math and he told me he was tired. So I let him to rest, I didn't force him to finish it. He took his favorite book and soon occupied with his book. I played with Cliff in the same room. Then Clay said to me, "Mom, did you know that today was a bad day at school.."

I was stunned, shocked. I thought it's me who has a bad day... I never thought about Clay's feelings! Oh I really feel guilty... and asked him to share what happened with him. Clay told me everything, not too important for adults but really matter for a kid of his age. I hugged him and he cried...we cried. I said we do have a bad day that's why we have to pray and tell God about it.
At night before Clay slept (Cliff was sleepy but so naughty! Refused to sleep and play around all the time!) I gave Clay a hug and kisses. I said to him, please always tell me your day at school on the way home. Sometimes I forget that you may have a bad day at school... please tell me. Clay cried again. I said,"Clay you are my good boy, I love you. Do you feel sad because our new maid left us?" He nodded.
"It's not your fault, ok. It's not my fault as well. We have done everything we could to make her feel at home. Don't feel bad ok."
He asked me why... I said,"She just wanted to leave. She doesn't want to work as a maid." (that's true)

Now the children are sleeping and I thought I have to take a rest now. Cliff might wakes up every single hour at night, he can't sleep well when he is sick. So I have to spare my energy...

By the way, there are many things I want to thank God before I sleep:

Dear Big Daddy, thank you so much for being with us in our gloomy days. Thank you for Your protection and guidance, especially to my kids.. When I was not around, Your eyes never let Clay go. You always watch him at school. Thank you dear God.

Here's Clay's monthly report I received today..

Thank you God for this smart young boy. Clay is such a blessing and comfort for us. Thank you for cute Cliff that drives me crazy but so funny. Thank you for this great moments I can spend with my sons and share our life. I am so sorry for all mistakes I've done today, Big Daddy. Please grant me patient and wisdom so I can raise my kids as You wish.

One more thing, thank you for sending me a friend to laugh before I sleep... have I thank You for my PR3? I guess I haven't... for this, I really thank you God!

In Jesus name, Amen.

Not a good news

Hope you still remember my post about Yah and Wan and still pray for them. To be honest I once feel they are getting better and nothing serious anymore, but last night my hubby brought a horrible news about Wan. I will share it after Yah's update.

Yah will see the doctor again on Oct 10th, 2007. I tried to call her several times before but no one picked up the phone. Just now I call her again and talked to her hubby. He said Yah still coughs often and loose her weight significantly. They have to spend more than 300,000 rupiahs or 33 USD for one time doctor visit and a month medicines. May be it's so cheap for you but for them, 8.3 USD for a doctor is quite a burden. I asked them to bring her every 2 weeks to the doctor but the doctor's fee is expensive. Yah has to have 8 months treatment to get well again, so I think it's ok to meet the doctor once a month as this is a long term treatment. I just make sure that she bought all the medicines and took them regularly.

Wan is still hospitalized and yesterday my hubby was called by the hospital because Wan urged to go home. Wan said he couldn't stand to lie down all the time and the hospital is so hot. He wanted to get a treatment at home (actually at his hometown- a small town). This is a very difficult time for this young man, we have to support him in our prayers. He wanted to walk and get convinient environment but he doesn't realize that his own life actually is at stake! My hubby talked patiently to him that he has to hang in there. He must have a perseverance and willingness to do all he can for his recovery...

He is told to eat 6 eggs a day and eat fish oil to get much protein to build his body again, but he refuses it. He becomes so thin, how can his body get nutrition and protein to recover? Hm... I don't know.... The worst thing is that one of his leg is actually damaged inside. I posted the other leg's picture, the black and burn one... in fact it was burnt by the surface only. Electricity can damage our body from inside and we even don't notice it until it was severely damaged!

The other leg got infectious and has pus inside. It has been operated 4 times to clean the pus and the doctor hope that eventually the pus will decrease and stop then the leg can be covered again. If you want to see his leg, you can click picture 1 and picture 2 warning, it is really horrible! We can see his flesh, pus and bone on those pictures.

After seeing that pictures you will understand why he needs high protein to recover. The worst case, if this treatment is not successful, his leg has to be amputated. Sorry to share this sad news to you all.

Support Yah and Wan

Please don't stop praying for them. Though you don't know them, God loves them and your prayers mean a lot to give them strength in this hard situation.

Thank you for my friends who spread this prayer request to their readers. It is highly appreciated. For those who want to support them by spreading this news, you can attach the badge on my right sidebar to your blog.

Update about Yah...

Sorry for late posting.. I have called Yah and asked about her condition.

She has her lung x-rayed and her phlegm was checked. She went to a lung specialist doctor as well... her daughter told me that the laboratory proofed she has no pneumonia in her phlegm.. that a relief for sure.. but there are some spots in her lung, so she still has to be treated well. Her cough is not so severe anymore, but it is still difficult for her to breath... they will go to the doctor again next month at 10th. When I asked them why it takes a month to go check up again, she said they didn't have enough money to go to the doctor twice a month. I made sure they have a month medicine, not just half.. and also will find a wise way to take Yah to the doctor 2 weeks later. I said wise because if I gave them money, they might use the money for something else instead of going to the doctor...

Please continue to support them in prayer and update this news for your readers as they also pray for Yah... if you need the badge you can take the code here. God bless your kindness...

Yah and Wan update..

This is a prayer need update. Yesterday I called Yah and talked to her daughter. Yah is home now after being in hospital for several days. She still has difficulty to breath, at least she doesn’t need added oxygen to breath now. The hospital expenses also have been covered by the help of our friends. She can have treatment at home. On Sept 13 she should have her lungs x-rayed and visit the lung specialist.

I also used the chance to tell her daughter to take care her mom well and don’t make Yah worry too much about her so she better goes home directly after school. I told her to cook for Yah and don’t allow Yah to do house chores as she has to rest. She said she is learning to cook but they usually buy the food. It takes time for them to adjust this hard situation indeed. I really hope Yah’s husband will change into a more responsible and faithful husband. Do remember them in your prayer.

We have Wan’s picture as well here. Now his wound has been

banded and he got a good doctor. My hubby has talked to this new doctor and got sufficient explanation about Wan’s treatment.

Being stroke by electricity that bad made him loose water in his body and he has to be treated carefully to prevent dehydration. He also needs to recover his blood as most of the blood’s cell has wrecked. You can see his leg is black, my hubby said he smell like burning meat! Poor Wan…

Prayer Needs...

In this weekend I heard two sad stories about our friends. Both of them are sick and need to be help. Let me share it with you…I think I will make a false name to hide their identities.

Yah, 35 years old, is a woman who lives with her teenager daughter and hubby. Last Friday she was brought into a hospital because of suffocation. She has a pneumonia for about 3 months. I visited her a day before she went into a hospital, she was still ok. I was surprised when my mom told me that she was in hospital now.

Doctor said that there is a constriction in her lung, and an ulcer in her stomach. What makes me very concern is that she is a needy. She works as a maid with salary around 44$ a month. She has a hubby who likes to spend her money for drink and women. In order to get some money she cooks and sells ready meal to her neighborhood workers. I estimate her husband and she can only earn less than 100USD a month.

She loves her daughter very much, unfortunately her daughter seems not to understand her. One day, her daughter left home for several days without permission, and Yah cried all day looking for her daughter in her illness. She searched her daughter, walked very far although it is hard for her to breath! I wonder how her daughter could let her mother so in pains like that. Thank God her daughter has come back home now.

This evening my mom visited her in hospital and asked her to believe in Jesus. They cried together and prayed to accept the Savior in her heart. I am very grateful for this and I hope she did it not only to be healed but also to be saved. My mom said that may be she can’t live longer.

Please help us to pray for Yah and family. If one of my readers want to help her you can contact me.

Another sad news is about Wan, my husband’s employee. Yesterday he got electricity shock. It was so bad that half of his body burnt severely. His leg was black, his skin was peeled off! It is not a work accident, luckily. He was climbing a mango tree to pick some mangoes when he was stroke by a high voltage electric wire. Thank God he is alive.

Now he is at the hospital, my husband brought him at 9 o’clock yesterday night. There’s only one hospital in our city which has a burn injury division. We have no choice, we have to take him to this general hospital in Bandung. What makes us concern is that the service is so terrible. The doctors seem does not have a heart to help their patients. They leave Wan without taking care of him carefully. They even don’t give a cloth to cover his burnt body!

Now he got a fever, we assumed that he got infection. May be the meds didn’t sterilize his wound carefully. When my hubby asked about his condition to the doctors, they can’t explain clearly. It is really pathetic if a doctor only pursue of knowledge and position, they become so ignorance towards other people’s pain.

I am so sad about them. I hope this writing can touch your heart to at least pray for them. May we always have a thankful heart for His blessings and may we always have concern towards the needy.

Diet Day One

Hm... today I have a lumbosacral x.ray to find out about my scoliosis... And for this, I have to clean my colon with dulcolax a day before... So I took 3 tablets of dulcolax last night. And at 3 o'clock my stomach hurt and I have to go to the toilet to and fro several times! I was only allowed to eat plain porridge, and 'clean' the colon with the tablets... so I'm sure I lost some ounce of my weight... :-D That was became my first day of diet than! hahaha...

Why do I have to take the xray?
I have to check my backbone, whether or not the curves get worse... My backbone is not curve too much. But still I feel uneasy about that. Especially when I am pregnant, my hip hurts. I also can't walk too long, yes I can't sightseeing at malls for hours and hours... I can't take heavy weights or carry my
youngest son too long.

Yeah, that's the results... the pictures of my backbones. You see there's a slight bend on my hip. And on right the pictures, my backbone look so sexy!

Hm... the doctor's analysist has not come yet. I will find out this evening. Anyway... I think I have lost 2 pounds because of diarhea! I have to continue dieting to get a star from the challenge!

My Prayer Room

This is a room of my heart... and I add a prayer room today...

Hm.. I have a prayer...I would like to share it and may be we can share our prayers and pray together.

I am praying for my family and a new house... My sons got a flu all the time. In a month, they are healthy may be for only a week...! I feel sad about this... especially my youngest son, Cliff, he is too young to take too much medicine. We are 5 people in this house, and all of us often get flu almost all the time... some people said that may be the air circulation in our house is not good... so the virus spreads easily. In addition, the water has alot of manganesse (pardon me if the spelling is wrong). So the water makes our clothes yellowish, and leaves some marks on the bathroom, wastaffle things...

So, I pray for a new house... with good circulations, with clean air, with clear water... we are looking for the house several times but we still don't know where is the best for us... we hope we can solve this problem by moving to the new place.

Cliff took an allergy test yesterday... and the result is quite bad. It is a serologi test, and his IgE total is 34.47 IU/ml while it should be 0-20... I pray so I can find an allergy specialist for Cliff...

Do you have a prayer list? Just share here with me...
