We've been on vacation all summer it seems. In June we went to FL (daughter), GA (son), NC (brother), and LA (good friends). Before we even got started my dh stated that we'd never do *this* again! He does all the driving and just the thought k... Read more

Well, here it is almost 2 months since I last blogged. Just thought I'd let any interested parties know what's going on in my life. Would you believe that my son and his family have STILL not moved? They're moving into a home that had been... Read more

My missing tooth caused me to gain! I didn't know there was SO much sodium in chicken noodle soup. I may never eat it again! Anyway, when I weighed Thursday morning (the day after the tooth went missing), I was glad to see that I was at my ULTIM... Read more

I had a MAJOR toothache (the kind that gets all the others hurting in sympathy) for 2 weeks. I found out (courtesy of the internet) that cloves are a natural home remedy for that, so I got the cloves (which I have never used) out of my spice rac... Read more

But all's well. As I write this, I'm listening to my son singing on a CD. His wife and others have told me that he's singing and playing (piano) about as well as he used to. I can't wait till we go to GA in Dec. so I can judge for myself. And, o... Read more
Good report!

I had my annual physical yesterday and found I'm doing pretty good for someone my age! The scale there was actually 1 and a half lbs. lighter than mine (surprise, surprise!) and showed that I had lost 26 and a half pounds since last year. Yay!!!... Read more

We just got back from GA, where we got a new granddaughter! She was born on July 3 (she's a "firecracker" anyway!), weighed 5 lbs. 10 oz. and is 19 1/2 " long. I had the privilege of caring for her and her mom all while they were in the hospital... Read more
A "bump" along the way
Saturday, May 17, 2008      1 comments

Andrew has hit a "bump"; he's in the hospital in GA. He's seemingly all right for now. The cardiologist came in and said he's in the beginning stages of heart failure; they're going to "fiddle" with hismeds to try to deal with it. Basically, hi... Read more

I made goal this morning! I think I'm going to savor it a bit and then press on toward another goal - kinda secret, like Mrshoneyc. BTW, my son is doing GREAT! He and his wife sang at a church Wed. night. He played and just sang on the c... Read more

I was just hoping for the best weightwise after being gone nearly 7 weeks. We stayed in motels and ate out for all meals and got no exercise. Guess what? I didn't gain ANY. I'm real happy about that and hope to shed a couple more pounds by S... Read more

My son, Andrew, got out of the hospital Wed.; we all started off for their new home in Dearing, GA; after stopping for the night, we arrived at their new home and they were reunited with their three children. He tolerated the trip very well but ... Read more

My son is improving daily. To God be the glory! 2 weeks ago the doctors told us he wouldn't live much longer and now he is walking - mostly with a walker but sometimes alone - he's off all tubes and most meds, and they're planning to send him ho... Read more
Update on my son
Wednesday, April 02, 2008      1 comments

Hallelujah! He's mostly awake. He's only on one sedative now and that one's being turned down. His vitals are stable - please pray that they remain so. He nods and turns his head to the speaker; so we know that he knows and understands things. ... Read more
