Asking for Prayers…….

I first want to apologize if we seem MIA lately…….besides Sophia having a rough winter (thank god she seems to be over her sickies) We have been dealing with a lot of personal issues. Vinny is the last person to ever come out and ask for prayers or sympathy…..but I am……Vinny has been dealing with his own disease since I have known him, Crohns Disease……When I was pregnant with Sophia we got the disease into remission and under control, but as you can imagine once Sophia was diagnosed Vinny abandoned all thoughts of his own health….for the last 3 years he has been running 110 miles per hour pushing and fighting full speed ahead to end SMA……but this has taken a toll on him and sadly his Crohns is back and more painful than ever. I had no idea how bad it was because Vinny would not tell me everything, but over the last month the pain has been unbearable…..over this last week we have met with a Dr. and Monday Vinny will be having a procedure done which we hope will help. So I ask you to please pray for my husband, for Sophia and Jacksons father…our family is a team and it does not work if we are missing anyone…..I apologize if our family and SCF has seemed hard to reach lately or if it takes us a while to get back to you, we pride ourselves on running this organization ourselves (100%) volunteer …so if we take a day or two to get back to you, please understand…..We are always so humbled and grateful to everyone who believes in us and our mission……The recent death of Gary Carter (all star catcher for the Mets) just got me thinking how much he reminds me of Vinny……when I first met Vinny, he always spoke about how much he loved and admired and looked up to Gary Carter, he was his childhood hero….Vinny always said Gary Carter put his whole heart and soul into the game, that he was a “stand up guy”, a gentlemen, …well now as I sit here those same words can be said about my husband….I have never met anyone in my whole life who is as dedicated as he is, who puts every ounce of his heart and soul into what he believes in, he has that attitude that NOTHING will stop him…nothing…..he fights for what is RIGHT, for what he believes in, he is not afraid to stand alone…..Im so proud he chose me to be his partner in this journey, and Sophia and Jackson are so lucky to have him….So on Monday if you can please keep my husband in your prayers, for the Dr. to perform a safe procedure and for us to get positive results!!!!! Thank you all so much from the bottom of my heart !!!!!!
