Since May 16th, 2010

So much has gone on in the last 2 week it be hard to know where to start.
May 16th my sister was in a house fire. She is in ICU in the Burn Unit at Vanderbilt Hospital Her house considered totaled by the
She has 23% burns to her face neck and arms. She had been on a vent up until last night that is 12 days I believe. Today she was breathing on her own ( she has a tracheotomy) to be a temporary support.It is just taking a while for her to mend. So continue or add her to you prayer list.

Next my status change forever.
I am a Grandmother , that seems a little strange. So now am i that old enough, look like one or even act like one LOL yeah your right all of the possible mentioned. So what is one to look, act,age enough to be the such. It doesn't even matter , What matter is that I am and it is an amazing thing for you little one to have a little one. :) so let's see if I can get a new look at the new me.

May 14th 2010

Yea today is the start of my 2 week vacation. I had plans to visit the beach of Pensacola for 3 full days and to visit my first grandchild on her "birthday" . Well when you live with other people your life is not your own. My S/O use ALL of his vacation and sick time up on sick days and "other" vacation days thru the past several months ---- so it DEFINITELY affects me. SO Now I must cancel the blue skies and sand ,sun and relaxation of residing on the beach for 3 full days of doing nothing but reading,gazing and playing in the warm gulf water I hope I get my money back! If my actions would not affeCt anyone, I do what I wanted and just go on down, but as you know generally there are consequences that one lives with.
As usual I try the most to make the best of what is there. WE will be traveling to the gulf of Mexico visit and assist as needed with our daughter's need ,Her husband can not take off the usual 6 weeks and in the mist of it all she has to have SURGERY to get the baby out. Surgery is a simple word but is a stressful subject on the body. She is young and should do well. It does mean that all futures pregnancy will end up this way, LORD PLEASE TURN THAT BABY AROUND . With any surgery you have the risk of adhesions and that generally causes problems later on. I don't know why he Dr does not try to turn it around to avoid surgery. Almost 60 years ago babies were turn around at delivery time. Course Dr's probably were more like vets. They use what they had and rolled with it and generally did work well. My brother was turned at delivery he was breech. That was almost 60 yrs ago and no that not what wrong with him.
Oh on to greet this sunless day beginning, I sooooooooo need the sun!

Oh Happy Mothers Day!

I am hurt,shall I tell you why. My daughter and her hubs do not want me to visit when she goes to the hospital to have her first child ,which is our first grandchild. I find that very strange. Anyone would be thrill to have anyone come to say " oh she so cute," and esp you think you would want your family that could to come and visit.
Least that is what most people want. I sometimes wonder if this is my daughter, the excuse "well there is no sense in driving here for 8 hours for a 30 minute visit"
I not going to lie up in your bed an eat potato chips.
I went with a friend to visit a ex co worker at Summit Hospital. She was thrill that we came for a visit.She even let us both sit on her bed and even offer us chips. There are places to stay so not to intrude upon the privacy of a young family with a new baby.
All I can say is just wait and perhaps you will understand once you are a mother.I certianly hope you will, just a characteristic of being a mom. No wonder some mothers ignore their kids.
Happy Mother's Day for any of you mothers.
