My Grandmother's memorial service just concluded moments ago in Palm Springs. I just got off the phone with my Mom and she said it was a beautiful service. A, Baby J and I obviously are not there. We decided it was just going to be too much and it was more important for my Mom to have us come down to the beach house next week. My Mom is surrounded by her five brothers and countless friends of my Grandma's. I wish I could be there to give my Mom a hug. I know this is going to be a tough day for her. Please keep my family in your prayers today.
I have another heartfelt prayer request. One of my very best friends recently found out her 11 month baby girl, Scarlett, has "Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum," meaning, during the 2nd trimester, her corpus callosum never developed. Your corpus callosum is the tissue between the right and left side of your brain, so it is what sends all those synapses/messages back and forth. Scarlett's right and left side can't communicate, which means she may have coordination, perceptual, and/or visual problems. This is extremely rare, and its effects range greatly. Therapy is the best remedy to exercise the brain and rewire itself. They also found out that Scarlett is having infantile seizures. They are currently trying to rule out Aicardi Syndrome. My friend A and her husband M have a deep faith in God. I'm so proud of how well both of them are handling this, but they need your prayers. Please stop where you are today and say a prayer for sweet Scarlett. She needs as many prayers as she can get and I know from past experience that I can always count on you girls to pray for my friends and family! I am so lucky. A&M have a long road ahead of them during the upcoming weeks and months and they also need your prayers. Thank you!!!
