Update On Betty

Going to see Betty and staying the whole days has just exhausted me, but I am so glad to say that she is getting better.
Although she is still in intensive care where the nurses can keep a good eye on her, she is definitely feeling better, and she tells Rachel that she is having no pain.
The main problem has been with her muscles.
In our family, six of the nine Golden children have a disease that is called myotonic dystrophy.http://goldbamboo.com/topic-t6872-a20634.html..
The two biggest symptoms of this is weakening muscles[neck, arms and legs] and cataracts at the age of the late twenties and early thirties.
Betty, Teddy, Gail and I have all had cataract surgery in early adulthood.

It took Betty a little time before she could lift her head off the pillow after her recovery from the operation.

I am so sorry that I haven't reported sooner but I have just been so exhausted.It doesn't mean that I haven't appreciated all of your prayers and support and that I have missed out on reading the answer to prayers for Donna's sister, and that I have not prayed for Little Missionary Julie, our Montreal family,David, Grandaw Ron,Leo, Gunnar, and all the rest of the Pals!!
All my love and blessings....love Terry

Dear Terry,
good that you can finally relax for some time and leave the job to the great healer.
I wonder, did you miss your appointment for yourself at the doctor? You certainly have a lot to deal with yourself. Read about the muscle dystrophia. Not just encouraging reading.
Well, the good Lord needs you, so he'll have to care about your health too.
If He is God, He is God Almighty. If He can heal headache, He also can heal your muscle illness.
Thy guardian does not sleep not slumber.
Have a special wonderful Lord's Day.
From Yours, Elise
