Posts Tagged ‘juvenile diabetes’

It’s that time of year again! Every year I walk in the JDRF Walk (for juvenile diabetes) in honor of my preacher’s daughter, who is now about nine years old (I think) and was diagnosed when she was five. This year, she has a problem with her hip joint (they think it’s a complication from her diabetes), so her parents are going to pull her in a wagon or push her in a wheelchair so she can still participate in the walk. I always walk with the family, and we’ve added a few extra people to the group this year.

I’m asking for donations again (no amount is too small!). I almost hate to do this on my blog since I haven’t posted anything in awhile, but I’m going to try to remedy that soon. Anyway, if anyone is interested in donating, email me at lauralynnelliottauthor@gmail.com or message me on Facebook, and I will give you the link to donate online. I’m not going to post the link here for privacy reasons.

The walk is this Saturday, so I need all donations by Friday. I’m not usually this late posting this, but I wasn’t sure I was going to post it until today. I HATE asking for money. But this is a good cause.

Thanks!

A day late again!

Nothing to report on the writing front. I hope to dive back into that this week.

I just finished an editing job and immediately got another one. That’s how I like it…one job at a time. 🙂

I need to be walking because that JDRF Walk is coming up Saturday, and I’m so out of shape! Last year, I had been walking a lot before the event, but this year…not so much. Again, thanks to the two people from this blog who donated to the cause.

I feel like I’ll never catch up on things I need to do. Do you all ever feel like that?

Signing off!

Always a day late….

I’m finally starting to feel a little better, but something weird is going on. I’m getting a sore throat that comes and goes. There one day, gone the next. One night it hurt so badly, I was almost in tears. The next day? Nothing. I don’t know what could be going on, but it can’t be bacterial. I’ve been on two different kinds of antibiotics for my other issues. My dear friend, Anya, says it could be the pollen irritating my throat, but this feels like the gland, like when you have strep rather than a raw throat. Who knows?

Okay, enough about that. This is a writing thing, not a whining thing, right?

I’ve got a couple of editing jobs coming up, so I won’t be writing as much, but I HAVE started writing notes on the third in my mystery series under the other pen name. And I’m going to still be working on Keeper of His Soul. This illness has put me behind on everything, but I’m trying to get back on track. Maybe I’ll be able to post more on my next few check-ins.

I also want to thank the two people who responded to my last blog post and donated or pledged a donation to my walk for Juvenile Diabetes. That’s very generous, and I appreciate it so much. I’m not mentioning names because I thought you might want to remain anonymous. 🙂

I’m walking for Juvenile Diabetes again this year. If any of you can contribute just $5.00, it can really help. I know a little girl who has this terrible disease, and I’m doing this so that maybe someday she won’t have to have multiple shots per day. She was diagnosed when she was five, and I think she’s eight right now. I’m on her team and will be walking with her and her family on April 30.

If any of you are interesting in donating, contact me at lauralynnelliottauthor@gmail.com, and I’ll send you the link. I’m not going to post that here for privacy reasons.

I understand if you can’t do this. There are so many causes, and you can’t help them all. But if you can give even just $1.00, that’s cool. Thank you all for at least considering it! 🙂
