God Answers Our Prayers....

Wanted to give you all an update on my sweet Mamaw. She's doing better and should get to go home in a day or so. She looks so much better than she did. She's just trying to gain her strength back. I am so Thankful that God has seen her through this. God truly does answer prayers.

I must go now because DD is into things right now....

Big Hugs to you all.

Please pray with me.....

Please pray with me for my 82 year old Grandmother Katie. She is just the sweetest lady you could ever imagine! She has always wanted to make sure you weren't hungry. She always gives the kids snacks when they come to visit. The kids love going to Mamaw Katie's!! I actually just went to see her friday morning. She looked fine. That's why it shocked me when DH woke me up at 1 am and told me that I had got a call that she was at he ER. She was having trouble breathing and was hot. I actually beat the ambulance to the hospital.

When she got to the hospital they were trying to figure out what was wrong. IT did sound like she had had a heart attack. She has congestive heart failure and she aparrently hadn't been taking her meds. She was full of fluid. If my Uncle hadn't called they said she would have died! They started giving her the lasics to get the fluid off.

Well, I'll fast forward to today. She has had to have 2 pints of blood, she's on the ventulator but it's down to 8% now. They are keeping her asleep so she doesn't pull out the tubes, like she was doing early Sat. morning. It's so hard to see her like this. They think she may have had a small heart attack, they said it didn't affect her heart though. The Dr.'s think she may be able to come off the vent in a couple of days. They want to wake her up and see how she's doing in the morning. She is a diabetic, she has had surgery for various things and been so close to dying. She has always came back to us better than every. I just pray God will help her with this. I know God's will will be done, but that selfish side of me begs God to let us keep her here for FOREVER!! We love that woman!! She's just awesome!

I've been up there several times and it just seems so strange to see her in that bed. She's always up moving. She still gets her own groceries, goes shopping for clothes etc. Oh, and she's going to be so mad!! They had to cut her clothes off of her. My Uncle said that she had just put those clothes on while he was calling 911. So, I really hope that it wasn't anything she really liked. I said we'll have to give her a gift card so she can go buy a new outfit!

Well, I just hope you'll say a prayer for my Mamaw. She sure does mean a lot to her family. She's the butter in Peanut Butter. With out it it's just not the same.

Thank you so much. Many Hugs and Blessings.

It's Finally Friday!

I don't know about you all but it's been a long week here at our house! Glad we'll get a break from school/work. DH will be home some time this morning. Youngest DS has speech this morning at 10. Aunt Kathy is suppose to be coming in from California and visiting today and tomorrow. She's always a hit at our house! If I can remember to grab the camera I'll snap some photos and post later. Aunt Kathy is DH's Mom's sister. She always sits down with the kids and plays with them and they love that attention from her.

Today just house work and some time I have to work in going to the grocery store! We're down to bare bones here. I've GOT to go and get FOOD!! DH will come home and wonder what we've been eating all week.

Well, I'll close for now and be back later or tomorrow and try and post my grocery finds. I'm hoping to start stocking back up on things in the freezer. It's getting empty since we had Christmas and I was trying to not spend as much on food. So.....I need to get back to stocking up.

Hugs to all.

Oh, if you stop by feel free to comment. I want to hear from you!!!

We share just about everything!

I guess you could say that our family shares just about everything!! The stomach bug has been what my family has been sharing here lately. I think right now I'm next in line. It started with our youngest son, then the baby, then the twins and now our oldest one is complaining and DH has it. So, this is what I have to look forward to every day for the past week or more!

Stomach bug or not God has blessed us each and every one of those days and I'm greatful even if I'm cleaning and doing more laundry. :0) I'm thankful to be able to clean and have a washing machine and a place that we can all lay our heads at night. We are all together and will get passed the tummy aches. Thank you Lord.

Would give a hug but you'd have to Lysol yourself down!! :0)

God Bless you all and Stay well and WARM!! Don't let CHRISTmas end because the holiday has been thrown to the curb. Remember why we celebrate it. Jesus died for all of our sins so that we could be saved from hell and one day go live ETERNALLY with him in Heaven. That is why we celebrate Christmas! We don't deserve any of the blessings that he gives us but he loves us no matter what! Isn't that beautiful!?

Love you and so does Jesus,
