Lynnette's book-Chapter 8 & Week 5 The Secret

Please click the above icon to learn more about Read With Us and how it works.

This book reading is for In Faithfulness, He Afflicted Me by Lynnette Kraft.

Lynnette had prayed that Anna would be able to spend extra time in the womb and she sure did! An extra 2 weeks! She began to feed her family a healthier diet, which I think was smart. Eating healthy is the best way to stay healthy all around. Although I'm not to sure about that green juice made from young barley grass! lol I would prolly be thinking of yard grass if I was drinking it and that doesn't really turn me on to it. Heck, maybe it tastes good. Have you incorporated any healthier living into your family?

I'm so glad that Lynnette had a nice delivery with Anna. I'm sure it made things easier for both her and Anna. I doubt that if it was a difficult one the doctors would've let her leave the hospital so soon, but you never know. It was so nice that they could hold and cuddle with Anna before the doctors took her. I had imagined they would whisk her away.

It made me mad to read about yet another doctor and their uncompassionate ways. I really think that they should teach a class on compassion in medical school. I dunno, maybe that's something you just can't teach. I don't know, like Lynnette, why people would choose to go into a profession like a pediatric cardiologist and then show a dislike to everyone. Maybe they were having an off day but it still doesn't excuse acting in that manner. You suck it up. Have you encountered any doctors like this?

I'm so glad that families can have a place like the Ronald McDonald house to go to stay. Otherwise it would get very expensive. The medical bills are bad enough!!

To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best.

I definitely want to be the best person I can be, but I have times when I don't think, work, or expect the best. Can I blame that on human nature? It's hard to think of the best of anything when a tragedy occurs. You're just trying to keep your head above the water. Worry and anxiety can set in and further keep you from thinking about the best of things. I think this is just something that takes time.

We had to travel to Los Angeles to deliver Nate so that he could go to CHLA immediately. I had to deliver at Hollywood Pres. next door and was set up with their "specialist" that handled high risk deliveries. I met her the week before I delivered and she was so mean and so awful that I burst into tears. I have never, ever met anyone so mean in my life. I couldn't believe that she was the one that was selected to deliver high risk babies. She knew that our baby had a heart defect and that we had a very long and scary road ahead of us. She had absolutely no compassion. She even spoke to her staff with the same disrespect.

We had to go above her head and find another doctor to deliver Nate. The first time I met her was the day that I was induced but she was wonderful. I was so relieved that that horrible, mean and insensitive doctor didn't touch me or my baby. I don't know how any hospital in their right mind could allow her to work there.

A great post & I didn't think I could drink that green juice either. Yes it is so nice there are places to stay when your child is ill. My sister & her husband had to stay at Ronald McDonald house when there son was 3 days old at Akron Childrens. They were there for 2 wks.
As for Drs there are some real rude ones out there. It's sad that people have to deal with that along with the illness. No reason for it. {{HUGS}}

I know you are doing many good things for your family. If nothing else, the cloth diapers and natural things you use are teaching your daughter good things!

I don't really drink V8 Juice, I drink V8 FUSION - it's the fruit juice, combined with the veggies, but it basically tastes like fruit. I really like the Acai berry. YMM!
