Once there had been three
grandchildren to me
But now, man alive
the three became five!
On April 25th, my son and his wife had twins!! A boy, Hayden Ray, and a girl, Lillian Jo. Both are healthy (over 5.5 lbs each), although Lilly Jo was breach and broke her collarbone on the way out 😦 but is now moving her arm like nothing ever happened. After all of the depressing news we’ve had over the last 6-9 months, this is a much needed breath of fresh air. Here are some picture collages I made of our darling beauties!
The world keeps turning
as faster it goes
bonfires burning deliver their blows the acid ‘s churning as all heaven know and what I’m learning while the stress grows is all I’m earning is an ulcer, suppose?
Well, I said I would update you on everything, hopefully I remember it all:
Dad is all clear of cancer. We are guessing that it just went too long before they realized that he needed surgery and has suffered permanent nerve damage in his spine 😦 The dementia is continuing to worsen.
Jodie’s son was buried on Wed. Her grandson is doing pretty good now; granddaughter is doing much better and expected to recover, fully? We will pray it’s so! Children are strong, resilient little boogers. Hoping for the best.
Mark is back to square one, we think, but are unsure. One message said the tests he did were negative but he still needed to get the rest done. The cardiologist told him last Friday that he didn’t, ? He has an appt. with his regular doctor tomorrow, guess we’ll see what he says then. He still can’t go back to work until they find the cause. Burning through his vacation time rapidly and harvest will soon be upon us 😦
I need a break. The stress finally took its toll and I slept for 2.5 days straight. Only woke up to go to the bathroom and eat occasionally. Hanging in there though 🙂 Thank you all for your comments, love and prayers!! It means the world to us.
I have been having a hard time, especially lately with Mark off work, keeping myself supplied with clay. I started thinking about who I could ask if the mfg’s offered discounts to the disabled who used clay as part of their therapy. One of my doctors has already confirmed for me that it was. So i asked one of the polymer clay associations/guilds/groups that I’m linked into. It never ceases to amaze me just how many great people I have met on the internet. First I start out writing this blog and meet a wonderful group of faithful new friends and now these people. Within a short amount of time iIreceived: 4 offers to send me some clay and one lady who designs tools for handicapped artists, called “Sculptools, has sent me tools for free. Here’s some pics of them :
