I need all your help PLEASE.

Pepsi is giving away millions to fund great ideas It's called Pepsi Refresh project.
As alot of you my 8 year old daughter Sweet Pea has just been diagnosed with PANDAS. There is a group of parents with children who have PANDAS who has created a group to win some of this money Pepsi is giving away.. but in order to get the money we need to have the most votes. the groups is called. Parents on behalf of Dr.Cunningham's P.A.N.D.A.S. research

Dr. Cunningham is a research director at the Univ. of Oklahoma. She has been tirelessly researching the autoimmune process involved in PANDAS. She is on the verge of a medical breakthrough, which will help 1000's of children suffering with tics, ocd, etc. receive the proper diagnosis and treatment.
If your wondering what exactly is PANDAS.. read below.

P.A.N.D.A.S.(Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorder Assoc. with Strep)When a child contracts strep, antibodies that are aimed to kill the strep turn on the child and begin to ATTACK THEIR BRAIN causing inflammation. This swelling causes dramatic behavior changes. A once "normal" child suddenly has OCD, tics, high anxiety, sensory issues, and more. Most doctors are not aware of the complexity of PANDAS, how it presents itself, or how to treat it. This may lead to a misdiagnosis of clinical OCD, TS, or other mental disorders. Imagine a childhood of unnecessary psychotropic meds, suffering, and unanswered questions. With CORRECT DIAGNOSIS and treatment, remission is possible!We need this grant to fund Dr. Cunningham's study because it gives hope for correct diagnosis and treatment of this alarming disorder.Please help these kids and REFRESH the RESEARCH! Vote Project P.A.N.D.A.S!
My little girl.. is suffering from this.. every time she comes in contact with strep.. she doesn't even have to get totally sick herself.. just just has to be around it pick up a little bit of it and her body starts making these antibodies that then turn on her brain and really messes her up.. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE take the time to go and vote every day for Project P.A.N.D.A.S.. to help all the children just like my Little Sweet Pea.

From Gods Word Friday #14(5/21/10)

Nehemiah 2:1-10
1 And it came to pass in the month Nisan, in the twentieth year of Artaxerxes the king, that wine was before him: and I took up the wine, and gave it unto the king. Now I had not been beforetime sad in his presence.
2 Wherefore the king said unto me, Why is thy countenance sad, seeing thou art not sick? this is nothing else but sorrow of heart. Then I was very sore afraid,
3 And said unto the king, Let the king live for ever: why should not my countenance be sad, when the city, the place of my fathers' sepulchres, lieth waste, and the gates thereof are consumed with fire?
4 Then the king said unto me, For what dost thou make request? So I prayed to the God of heaven.
5 And I said unto the king, If it please the king, and if thy servant have found favour in thy sight, that thou wouldest send me unto Judah, unto the city of my fathers' sepulchres, that I may build it.
6 And the king said unto me, (the queen also sitting by him,) For how long shall thy journey be? and when wilt thou return? So it pleased the king to send me; and I set him a time.
7 Moreover I said unto the king, If it please the king, let letters be given me to the governors beyond the river, that they may convey me over till I come into Judah;
8 And a letter unto Asaph the keeper of the king's forest, that he may give me timber to make beams for the gates of the palace which appertained to the house, and for the wall of the city, and for the house that I shall enter into. And the king granted me, according to the good hand of my God upon me.
9 Then I came to the governors beyond the river, and gave them the king's letters. Now the king had sent captains of the army and horsemen with me.
10 When Sanballat the Horonite, and Tobiah the servant, the Ammonite, heard of it, it grieved them exceedingly that there was come a man to seek the welfare of the children of Israel.

What 1st jumped out at me is how God answered Nehemiahs prayer from Chapter 1
Nehemiah didn't come before the king to ask anything of him. But How Gods hand moved the kind to ask Nehemiah What was bugging him.. Once Nehemiah told the king God stepped in again to work through the king by moving him to ask how he could help.
What I love here is how Nehemiah just didn't start blurting out stuff. He took it before God and prayed then asked in a respectful way.
Then God had His hand on the king again to grant Nehemiah what he asked.

Isn't the way our Lord works amazing?!?!?!

Thought I would share

Thought I would share this because I couldn't stop LOL when it happened..
On Friday DH, the Girls and I were heading to Sweet Pea's 1st softball game of the weekend.. We were in DH's car not my van with the dark tinted windows.. We had the windows rolled down and we came to a red light. DH was turned looking at me talking and I was facing him.. All of a sudden he was looking over my shoulder and yelled at the window.. "SHE IS ONLY 12 STOP STARING" I turned to see two older teenage boys like 18 or 19 maybe even 20 in a fancy sports truck looking back into our car where Princess was sitting.. She is turning bright red and her and I are both LOL at DH yelling at these boys.. mind you she is NOT 12 she is 14 but still too young for the driver of the truck and his friend ....
BUT DH yelling at these guys wasn't even the funny part of this... It is what happened next..
The friend from the passenger side of the truck leans over and yells out the driver side window

ROTFL... I thought DH was going to die... but Princess, Sweet Pea and I all got a good laugh out of it..
