Prayers for Madalyn

Hello All:
This will be a very short post as my week has been VERY hectic and a bit stressful. I will try to post in more detail once things settle down.

For now, I would just ask an interest in your prayers for friends of mine,
Katie and Shaun. Their daughter, Madalyn, is having bladder/ureter surgery next Thursday! Miss Madalyn is a very SWEET, energetic child. I would truly appreciate it if you all kept the McDonnell Family in your thoughts & prayers. Here is a link to their page if you wan to read more about Madalyn and her condition.

That's all for now. I'm back to studying the digestive system for anatomy. Who knew the bladder could hold 900-1,000 ml?

I Love Alabama

My trip to Birmingham was stupendous! I had a great time with my “sisters” and dear friends. While in Alabama, I was graciously welcomed by the members of ZRPBC. I must say -it truly felt like home. I would like to thank everyone who made my vacation unforgettable. You all are welcome in my home ANYTIME!

After a sad goodbye, I sat in the airport terminal and waited for my plane to take off. I cried off and on remembering the days and nights spent in Birmingham. My tears were lessened when I talked to a friend of mine. I was reminded that it was not goodbye but see you later. Those words put a smile on my face. (I appreciate those kind words…Thank you)

While sitting in front of the gate, I couldn’t help but miss everyone. I’ve never visited a place where I felt such a warm spirit. This past weekend, I made memories that will last a lifetime.

With that said, I am going to share some of the landmarks from my vacation. ENJOY!
