Went to see DS at his new apt

Sunday, February 17, 2013

Good Morning; DH and I went to Killeen the home of Fort Hood to visit with DS and GF. We brought a crib mattress with us. My DS has not been able to sleep at night b/c GF is having problems sleeping. They both looked so tired. GF is due in 2 weeks.
She is still having fainting spells on occasion. they organized the apt well. But as we entered the repairman from the complex was there- toilet leaking, kitchen light not working- one of the bedroom lights did not work. Blinds in LR did not open. What a mess and baby due in 2 weeks. I am so upset with the apt management. emoticon My DS says he has it handled. He just looks worn out and baby has not come yet. I think I need a heart to heart with him. GF thanked me over and over for the gift of a washer and dryer for them. We had bought also a crib, breast pump and a lazy boy rocker for my son so he could feed the baby and support his back. DH & I felt they needed a head start. emoticon Grandma had made a quilt for the new baby and it was wonderful as she always makes lovely quilts. emoticon Even my DH is having health issues again. He has had 3 colds since Christmas. This has me concerned. We made an appt for a physical but it will not be until middle of March due to doctor and my DH schedule. DD is doing great. She has been Skyping with me 2x a weeks and calls 5 x a week. It is very nice she wants to share her life with me. I really admire her. I call her my renaissance daughter.
She does it all. She just sent her brother 3 paintings she made for the baby's nursery. I just pray these next two weeks go well. GF told me that her birth mom is going to help her after the birth. Her birth mother was not a good mother. GF was taking away from her at 4 years old by social services. This makes me nervous, but GF assures me that she is in counseling for months. I am not too sure I want her around my grand child. I need to talk to DS about this but do not think I can change things at this point. GF's adopted parents have not been supporting her at all per DS and GF. I have to let it go. Every one have a good day!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Oh boy. The GF's birth mother "helping out" would concern me as well. MONTHS OF COUNSELING? Hmmm...doesn't always change things. Prayer is about all you have in this situation.

    That was wonderful that you gifted them with a washer/dryer and crib/mattress. I can only imagine they were very grateful.

    Hope your DH feels better! It is such weird weather! I had my annual check up on Friday. While there in the waiting there was one poor soul coughing her lungs out it seemed and another was "tossing her cookied" (obviously they took her in right away). I stayed away as far as I could. But apparently not far enough as I came down with the stomach flu yesterday. Feeling a bit better today but it knocks the stuffing out of me!

    HUGS and prayers, my dear.

    It's hard to let our kids live their own lives and make their own decisions. We can offer advice and opinions, but ultimately they're on their own!The best we can do is pray. I usually use scripture for my springboard , such as Colossians 1:9-11 "We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience"
    Blessings on your journey to a healthy lifestyle, and may you have great delight in your new grandchild.
