Starting limping again yesterday and same this morning so I can't exercise and can't volunteer at the hospital. Have a 10:30 a.m. dentist appt. only now today. I guess I started with the walking too early and didn't give my bursitis time to heal. Going to attribute this to age! Have a great Friday and weekend. Fri, 26 Aug 2016 07:16:21 EST Thursday I got 6 hours sleep last night. Yea! 75 Minutes on treadmill before my daughter brought 2 grandchildren to babysit. Will be a late night with them as she has parent/teacher conferences after school. Limping a bit today so need to take the balance of the day easier. Have a lovely Thursday. Thu, 25 Aug 2016 12:17:13 EST Wednesday Well only 3 hrs. sleep for some reason as I should have been able to sleep since I got hardly any the night before last. Had my daughter leave the stroller in case I can get a walk in. Hope the soon to be 4 month old granddaughter takes it easy on me today and naps a couple times. Just turned The Adamm's Family on for my 4 year old granddaughter and she is enjoying the show. Need to have energy as I have a 6 p.m. wake to attend. Hope you have a nice day. Wed, 24 Aug 2016 08:05:18 EST Tuesday...Exhausted...Going on Adrenilin! 80 Minutes on treadmill before the 4 month & 4 year old came for me to babysit. The 7 year old started second grade today. The baby decided to stay up all day with me. Perhaps I can get her to nap tomorrow. Hope you had a good day. Tue, 23 Aug 2016 18:24:38 EST Monday Up at 5 a.m. to get an hour in on the treadmill before my 3 granddaughters got here for me to babysit. Left at 1:30 for the Cleveland Clinic with my son-in-law and the baby and just got home at 6 p.m. My husband watched the 4 & 7 year olds for me since I went to the clinic. Ready to relax the rest of the evening. Hope you had a nice day. Mon, 22 Aug 2016 18:13:57 EST Peaceful Sunday Church, choir practice and my granddaughter's first away soccer game.

You are wonderful. Have a great weekend. Roxanne Fri, 19 Aug 2016 07:03:26 EST My Dear Prayer Warriors! Charlotte is cancer free with no chance to turn into it. It is a hemangioendothelioma. Ultra rare but benign. It is basically a cluster of blood cell tumors on her liver which could dissolve at 12-18 months. She has a lot of them though and her liver is huge. They will start her on blood pressure medicine this morning to shrink it and my daughter and husband will stay at the clinic for 48 hours to monitor. This has a high success rate. The risk is that her liver is very big and if it ... Thu, 18 Aug 2016 08:34:58 EST Dearest Prayer Warriors.... <img src=""> <BR> <BR> Today they are doing an MRI on my sweet almost 4 month old granddaughter this morning to determine if the lesions all over her liver are benign or malignant and then we discuss the course of action. Please pray that they are benign. In God's name I pray. Thankyou. Wed, 17 Aug 2016 07:33:08 EST Calling ALL Prayer Warriors!! Please pray for my granddaughter Charlotte Josephine born April 26 as she is in the Cleveland Clinic and they found a bunch of lesions on her liver on a sonogram early this morning. She is going for an MRI this morning and biopsy. I don't understand as she is perfectly healthy, happy and talkative but her tummy was swollen. Please pray for healing. Thank you. Tue, 16 Aug 2016 08:13:14 EST Monday 60 Minutes treadmill and 60 minutes pulling weeds.

Fri, 12 Aug 2016 07:07:37 EST Thursday Just have the baby for a few hours this morning while my daughter goes into school with her 4 & 7 year olds to do a few things in the classroom. It is in the low 90's today and the classrooms are not air conditioned except the principle's office, library and the like. Teachers are allowed to buy their own fans for their rooms. I was in earlier this week and had a fan positioned at me while I worked. Last year the principle brought a few classes in his office for periods of time because th... Thu, 11 Aug 2016 07:39:39 EST Wednesday Just have to 3 boys to watch today until around 4 p.m. Got a lot done in my daughter's classroom yesterday but need to take it easier today.

Tue, 9 Aug 2016 06:56:28 EST Monday Going to try one crutch instead of two today (diagnosed with bursitis in my knee Wednesday) as my ribs are sore from grocery shopping with my DH yesterday on 2 crutches.

Sun, 7 Aug 2016 08:28:37 EST Day 4 on crutches My bursitis in my left knee is better and I can stand down on my leg a bit. Looking forward to getting in the shower this morning and was thrilled that yesterday was Friday and no children to watch this weekend. I pray I am well enough to help my daughter set up her classroom next week as I have helped her for 10 years now. Have a lovely and blessed day! Sat, 6 Aug 2016 08:48:17 EST Friday Third day of crutches. DH has been taking care of the 5 grandchildren but today my daughter has no one to give the 3 month old to, so I will care for her in bed.

Will just be working around my bed today with the changings, etc. Looking forward to 4 p.m. Have a lovely day. Fri, 5 Aug 2016 06:19:30 EST Thursday Another forced day of rest.

Probably a morning hike with the 11 year old twin boys. My DH can watch the 6 year old while we go as he is too young for our hikes. Tried him last night on a short hike and he kept falling and is way out of control trying to run ahead of us. Hopefully after my son picks up the 3 boys around 5 we can go and visit my son and his family for a bit in Cleveland. Have a lovely day. Tomorrow I have my 3 granddaughter's all day and my DH work... Wed, 27 Jul 2016 08:06:22 EST Tuesday Just got my son's 3 soon to be stepsons for the day. The twins are almost 11 and the other one is 6. The twins just ate 2 heaping bowls of cereal (equivalent to 4 bowls) and grapes. I stopped them at the two and said to save some for tomorrow. Wow, to be able to eat like that and burn it! LOL. Have a great day. A few weeks ago when I had the twins for a week they polished off 3 large boxes of cereal in 3 days. I wonder if they are that hungry or if they eat like animals and you have t...
