Thirty-nine-year-old Jennifer Saake (founder, Hannah's Prayer Ministries), experienced 6 strokes via vertebral dissection at a chiropractic office, including brain stem and cerebellum bleeds, in Oct. 2011. Jenni remained hospitalized for nearly 2 months and was not expected to live (near death experience) nor recover, but if she even survived, she was slated to live out her days in a nursing home or, best case, to maybe come home but wheelchair-bound and needing 24-hour care. At 5 years, 7 months God showed how He was writing her story from the beginning.

Jenni is currently writing more books and stays active on both Facebook and Pinterest. Here is her resume.

Since Jenni's chiropractor carried no insurance and moved out of the country soon after the accident (thus avoiding any legal or financial consequences), if you would like to help contribute to the Saake (pronounced like the two small words, say and key) family's massive financial needs (medical expenses alone are estimated to cost between $1- and $1.5- Million in Jenni's lifetime), please visit Jennifer Saake's Stroke Survivor GoFundMe Page. (This support information has been added in direct response to several reader requests.) The Saakes sincerely thank you for your prayers and if God prompts and equips you to send any monetary assistance as well, this is a significant added blessing.

That's How The Cookie Crumbles

We had three of us home with a tummy bug today. I did manage to get the dishwasher loaded today, but that was ALL I had the energy for, and I had to try just a couple of dishes at a time, then take long drinks of electrolyte drinks and go rest again between each dish.

Oh, I managed to do my hair to (see flute video below). The new detangling brush Rick got me for Christmas makes a world of difference, though six months ago, even two months ago, I didn't have enough hand skill that it would have made a difference! Kendra, my Jamberry Nails came last night and hopefully I will feel enough better enough to try them tomorrow! :)

 

Both of my friend who had brain surgery last week are home now and doing well. It will be a long road toward recovery, but as bad as they were both feeling before surgery, we pray that recovery will come quickly. Thank you for praying!

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.
