Latest and Best Update on Baby Scarlett!

Tuesday, July 29, 2014
Great news....Baby Scarlett is doing great...pooping, eating, off Morphine, and she gets to come home tomorrow!!!! I am giving God all the Glory, and a sincere thanks to everyone who lifted this sweet baby up in prayer. I cannot even begin to express my gratitude. Our God is an awesome God!! Never, ever, underestimate the power of prayer.

How excited I am that all you who put Scarlett on a prayer chain, can report back this awesome answered prayer!!

I may be off a few days so that I can stay with them and take care of the kids, cook, clean, whatever is needed so that these exhausted parents can just sleep and recover from this horrific ordeal.  You can still place orders via e-mail and I will be able to keep on top of things from my laptop.  I am trying to get all the shipping out that I can and all will be back to normal by the weekend.  Thanks for your understanding.

With most sincere gratitude,

Terri

Tuesday Update on Scarlett

Good Afternoon Ladies (or rather, Friends)

Never thought I would be so happy that a baby pooped...But Scarlett finally pooped around 5:30 this morning!!! So that is half the battle. She needed to take 2 Pedialyte feedings and keep them down before Andrea could nurse her.  And I just got an update from Andrea that she was able to nurse Scarlett twice in the last few hours and she seems to be able to keep it down or hasn't vomited it up so far.  So that is promising.  Although Scarlett is still in pain and is irritable, Andrea believes the pain may be subsiding a bit. The morphine was making her itchy, so they gave her Benadryl thru her IV.

Finally, a light at the end of a very dark tunnel...Thank you Lord.  And thank you ALL for your thoughts and prayers, encouraging words, etc.  I am forever grateful.   I serve a Mighty God...and I give Him all the glory!!

This picture lifted my spirits and melted my heart.  I just want to sweep her up and smother her with kisses!


Baby Scarlett on the mend .... praying and believing for a speedy recovery!

Thank you all so very, very, much.  What a blessing you have been to me and my family.

Forever Grateful,

Terri

Monday update on Baby Scarlett

Monday, July 28, 2014
I was wanting to hold off on an update until I had something a little bit better to report.  But that is not the case right now.  After 4 air enemas failed to correct Scarlett's condition, she had to have surgery last night (5:00 - 7:30 p.m.)  The doctors had to remove 6" of small intestine that was now dead and also her appendix.  They discovered that she had a rare disorder called Meckel's Diverticulum that only 2% of children are born with, and it is more common in males.  Now that this has been taken care of they are needing her to have a normal bowel movement.  Once that happens, Andrea can feed her.  Then she must not vomit.  If she vomits one more time they are going to have to put a tube in her nose.

Neither of these things have happened yet.  She is in alot of pain which they are trying to control with Morphine and Tylenol.  Her bottom is in sad shape from the enemas, her throat is irritated from all the vomiting and having a tube down her throat during surgery.  My poor daughter-in-law is at an emotional breaking point having to see her baby in such anguish and she can't do anything to make it better.   She said Scarlett looks at her with these sad eyes and she fears that Scarlett is ready to give up like her little body just can't take anymore.  This just broke my heart.  Still praying for a breakthrough.  Something.

I cannot begin to express my appreciation for your prayers, encouragement, caring and kind words...this has really lifted me up as I am just emotionally exhausted.  Just as they are watching their baby suffer, I am also watching my kids suffer. 


My baby holding his baby...

 Thank you for continued prayer for Scarlett.

Sincerely,

Terri

Update on Baby Scarlet

Sunday, July 27, 2014
I am overwhelmed at the outpouring of prayers and encouraging words from all of you from all over.  Some I know well, and some I do not know at all.  I am overcome with emotion and thankfulness for this.

Unfortunately,  an ultrasound performed earlier revealed that this condition has returned.  Now, 3 procedures have failed and Scarlet is still vomiting continually.  Surgery is now needed.  This is killing my son and daughter-in-law to see their baby in such pain.  They are nervous as the doctors discuss the next steps...

It truly amazes me, how many people are praying for this little angel.  So many of you have put her on your churches prayer chain, etc.  Thank you! 

My church all stood in agreement and heaped prayers on Scarlet, Chad & Andrea, and all the doctors and other suffering children at Riley's Children's Hospital.  It was moving...I am believing for a miracle for which I will give all the Glory to God when this ordeal is over.

Thanks again for continued prayer.

Prayers for Scarlet

Good Morning Ladies,

Wow.  You never know what a day holds in store for you.  It can start out wonderful and with one text or phone call it can all change.  Yesterday afternoon, I received a text from my oldest son, that they had to take my 4 mo. old granddaughter Scarlet to the ER - she was vomiting, dehydrated, and lethargic.

This is my sweet little angel girl...she is normally the happiest, smiley baby ever:


 

Then the next I heard they were flying her to Riley's Children Center .... That was alarming.  She had been diagnosed with a serious condition called Intussusception.  Intussusception is a life-threatening illness and occurs when a portion of the intestine folds like a telescope, with one segment slipping inside another segment. This causes an obstruction, preventing the passage of food that is being digested through the intestine. It causes intense pain.

Due to thunderstorms in Indy, they were unable to fly in and had to transport her by ambulance.  Andrea got to ride along, Chad had to follow behind in a couple hour drive.  So heartbreaking to think of her going through all this.
In hopes of avoiding surgery, the doctor's performed a procedure that is best described as an "air enema"  where air is forced thru to try and correct/reposition the bowel/intestines to eliminate the blockage.  The procedure went well and the doctors are hopeful.  She will need to be watched for at least a day.  Scarlet is doing well, but very weak, tired and hungry.  She cannot eat for several hours after the procedure.  Andrea was going to get to try nursing her at 6:00 am.

Chad texted me at 8:30 this morning that feeding did not go well .... she was still vomiting.  This just breaks my heart.

I know this has nothing to do with business, no new product to introduce ... this is just a grandma asking for prayers for her granddaughter in need.

I feel like you all are not just customers, you are also friends.  I appreciate all the encouragement and well wishes you give me.  I also know that many of you are prayer warriors and I am asking that you would stand with me in prayer for healing of sweet Baby Scarlet.  I am believing for a total healing with no recurrence.  I just feel so helpless.  But I do believe in the power of prayer.  And my God is a mighty God.

Thank you all.

Sincerely,

Terri

The Glue can also be sponged through mask designs and stencils onto projects. Bottles contains 30ml. 
  If applying the glue with a stamp ensure you wash the stamp immediately in warm water.

**SEE COLORS BELOW**
$10.00 plus shipping
Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Flakes can be used in a variety of ways. 
You can use it in the traditional way or use it with a layering technique with adhesives. 

Use with Cosmic Shimmer Flake & Glitter Glue (item #CSF01) or with double sided tape.
  • When using with the glue you apply the glue to your project and wait for the glue to dry. Once dry the glue will remain tacky, place the flakes onto the glue and pat them down. You can then use a dry brush or sponge to remove the excess flake and reveal the detail. 
  • Use the same techniques for the double sided tape with any of your favourite crafting dies.
  • You can use with stamps and glue. If applying the glue with a stamp ensure you wash the stamp immediately after in warm water.
