So glad to hear your grandson is doing well, you are all in my thoughts and prayers!

I am so sorry for the long delay in getting back with you all. Thank you for responding to my blogs. Daily, I have been visiting my precious preemie grandson at the Children's Hospital, spending time with my daughter and raising my (3) guys at home. YOU ALL ARE WONDERFUL SP friends!!
Update on my preemie grandson. Armonee was born on January 1, weighing 2 pounds / 14 ounces. He is "living" in the NICU and has had several setbacks, however, he is one heck of a tough little guy. He reminds me so much of when Nicky (my son was born a preemie at 1 pound / 14 ounces and came home late Christmas Eve, 1996). I haven't taken any pictures because his eyes and most of his head are still covered due to being under the light to help his jaundice. Everytime, he recognizes my voice by stirring around and moving his head towards me. Armonee has not been intubated except for the first day of his little life. WOOHOO!! I love when he starts crying. Not only is it building up his lungs, but it is music to my ears because my son was intubated for (2) months. My heartfelt gratitude for all you have been to me, my beautiful grandson and daughter. Armonee is giving preemie kisses to each one of you.
Update on my health. My biopsy will be performed on January 27. If the doctor rules out thyroid cancer, the next step will be checking the neck and head areas. I already told them there's no need to check my head because my brain took a break (lol). I'm still having the same symtoms and while the boys are in school, I rest a lot. I told them the doctors are takings lots of tests and should know what's going on after the 27th. Thank you for your continuing prayers, positive thoughts and being there for me. Love and hugs to you all!! Have a beautiful and blessed weekend! I miss you all so much!
