While you are praying for me, one more request

May5,2008

As some of you may know I have a sister that is 8 years old and has leukemia, she could really use prayer also.  She has been sick for a long time and we know that prayer encourages miracles to happen, so if you would please pray for her to.  Her name is Taylor.  Thank you,  Love Cole

WILL YOU PRAY FOR ME

April30,2008

    I’m sorry it has been so long since I have wrote anything I have just been really sick. A few months ago I had started throwing up like last year when I got mono. So I went to the doctor and they didn’t notice anything wrong. I kept throwing up but, it got worse everything I ate or drank came right back up. It made me lose about 20 pounds. The day after I went back the doctors told me too wait another week. I was in school and we were about to go to lunch when I was called to sign out. I got up to the office and my mom was there and she wouldn’t tell me what was wrong and we got home and she said to get some clothes and she very upset. I kinda figured that I was going to the hospital and that ended up to be where we were going.

   We got there and the doctor said that I had to stay at the hospital. He said to stay in room 316 and all I could think was John 3:16. I didn’t know what was going to happen and me and my mom sat in the room for about an hour or so and three doctors came in the surgeon said that they are going to have to take my gallbladder out. They had to plan when to do the surgery so we had to wait. The surgeon wanted to do the surgery on the next day which was Saturday so I could get out of there on the weekend but, he couldn’t so we had to wait a week till surgery.

   After the surgery I felt like I weighed 500 pounds. If you have a weak stomach skip this part. I had to use the bathroom so I got out of the hospital bed and yellow stuff from my stomach poured out all over the place. I could barely walk so my stepdad stayed and he had to help me get to the bathroom. The yellow stuff kept on pouring out seaping through the three pads I had on top of my bellybutton. I had four stitches and two were about two inches long and the other two were just dots. I also had no belly button it had to grow back cause it was closed up. I also could not sleep because every two hours the nurses would come in and take my blood pressure. The next day I went home but I couldn’t go to school or anything.

   I had to be on hospital homebound for two months. I went back to school for about a week and I had gotten sick again. My mom and I went to the doctors office and the doctor did not no what to do so he did some bloodwork on my liver enzymes and ordered an ultrasound on my liver. When the test came back my liver enzymes were high and my liver was swollen really bad. The doctor researched some things I could have and there was a lot of different things that had the same symptoms so he did not know what was wrong. Just a few days ago we went back cause I am still hurting so he ordered a cat scan for may 8th so maybe on may 9th we will know something. So please pray for me. Thanks!!!

7th grade Football Practice

August17,2007

    In football practice last week and this week I have done an awesome job! Also during practice I was injured. Last Friday i had gotten tackled and the back of my head went all the way back and my heels and pulled a muscle in my back. Then Wednesday i had got hit and my helmet turned all the way to the side while my head stayed straight. That wasnt what was hurt it was my chest.

     I went to the doctor yesterday and they had to take an x-ray. After I took the x-ray the said I had a mild bruised lung  and it has been so hot that i was mildly dehydrated. On top of that the bruised lung is causing me to have a shortness of breath.

A Week Before Her Journey!

July30,2007

In my previous post I mentioned how much I missed my Granny ! This is one of my favorite pictures that I cherish !

     This photo was taken one week before she made her journey to be with our lord ? She died with a brain tumor that was cancerous and it had spread to her lungs ?

     All of Granny’s life she always said that she didn’t want to suffer for a long period of time , I believe that God heard her request because she was diagnosed the last of January and We laid her to rest the last of May !

     I thank my Sunday School teachers and Bro. Gordon for thier prayers , love , and concern .

      Thanks everyone for your time to listen because I needed to share this part of my life !

      With Love ,

       Cole.

Granny

July25,2007

Today is already starting to be a rough one, I know that my granny is in heaven but I wish I could see her again.  We get up sometimes in the morning and I think about her alot but on some mornings it is so hurried that I really do not think alot about it.  My granny used to let me stay with her and take me places.  I always remember her telling me I could stay with her and we would go swimming.  She also let me rent games and she would watch me play them.  My granny was fun, she was not like her age she acted younger.  I really miss her today.  I have to ask God to help me through today so that I can look for tomorrow.

Bobby Bowden .

July21,2007

I am glad Mr. Bobby got inducted into college football hall of fame! I know at times I might be partial to Mr. Bobby but Its probably cause I have grew up only about 35 miles north of Tallahassee Fla.

   Leave a comment about Mr. Bobby if you wish !

    I know I’m proud of his accomplishments and respect his christain life style in coaching football? Its my dream to play football at Florida State and I realize that it will be under another coach because I’m only 12 years old ?

    Have a good day.

     Cole.
