My Wish for You in 2010.May peace break into your home and may thieves come to steal your debts. May the pockets of your jeans become a magnet for $100 bills. May love stick to your face like Vaseline and may laughter assault your lips! May your tears be that of joy. May the problems you had, forget your home address! ...

Cup cakes anyone?

As you know the twins were in the hospital on their first birthday and their party had to be cancelled. So, Sunday we decided to have a "little" something for them. Most of all they enjoyed the cupcakes. Everything you see here was "self-inflicted". HA!! Happy Birthday my little angels.

Thanks-giving Today

We are giving thanks today for God's goodness. Prentiss went to the cardiologist today for check up after his heart surgery. He had an echo, EKG, and chest x-ray....all were good reports. He gets to stop his heart medications. He will continue to take a baby aspirin for 3 more months. GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME. I appreciate all the prayers and concerns by so many for our family this past year. God has brought us through. Luke and Prentiss are both doing great. They are glad to be out of daycare....for now anyway. More updates and pics later.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY my little angels

Happy Birthday to my little angels. We will have to celebrate once discharged from the hospital. They seemed to be some better today. Attempts were made to wean Luke off oxygen today, but O2 sats dropped to had to go back on O2. Doctors are thinking it is viral pneumonia, which basically means....time and treat the symptoms. Prentiss is still getting steroids through his IV. They both are on antibiotics for ear infections. With all that said he are still trusting GOD. HE did not bring us this far to forsake us. GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME. Please continue to lift them up before the Lord.

Luke is taking a brief nap.

Prentiss thinking "what you doin yaya???"

Check out these "serious" eyes! HA!

In hospital

Last night Luke and Prentiss were admitted to the hospital, Blair Batson Children's Hospital
They ran high fever again last night. Doctors are not sure at this point what is going on. Still running tests. They are on oxygen, IV fluids, breathing treatments...Will keep everyone posted when I learn more. I have temp so I can't be there with them. It is very frustrating.
Their 1 st year birthday party for Saturday has been cancelled.

Trusting God

Please pray for Luke and Prentiss they are very sick tonight. Prentiss has fever 105.9. We took them out of day care Tues. at the doctors recommendation. They have been in daycare for a month and have not completed one week without being sick. This past weekend they were at the doctors after hours clinic 3 times. It is so hard to see them so sick. We are trusting God for His healing power.

Trip to Wal-Mart

Yesterday I was at my local Wal-Mart buying a large bag of Purina dog chow for my loyal pet, Biscuit, the Wonder Dog and was in the checkout line when woman behind me asked if I had a dog.

What did she think I had, an elephant? So since I'm retired and have little to do, on impulse I told her that no, I didn't have a dog, I was starting the Purina Diet again. I added that I probably shouldn't, because I ended up in the hospital last time, but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.

I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way it works is to load your pants pockets with Purina nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so it works well and I was going to try it again.

(I have to mention here that practically everyone in line was now enthralled with my story.) Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food poisoned me. I told her no, I stepped off a curb to sniff an Irish Setter's a** and a car hit us both.

I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard.
Wal-Mart won't let me shop there anymore.

Better watch what you ask retired people. They have all the time in the world to think of crazy things to say.

Halloweeny is OFF

Our Halloweeny plans are off this year for the boys. They woke up this morning burning up with fever. We took them to the doctor this morning and they were put back on antibiotics. When does this end. As I have said before, they started daycare and this has really been difficult on them. We are hoping it won't continue much longer.
Oh brother, it is very difficult to hold babies with 102+ temp and hot flashing at the same time!!!! Can't you see the misting on the face????? I would laugh if it weren't so miserable!! HA!!

Happy Halloween everyone!! Be safe and have fun trick-0-treating!!! Look out next we come....

Patiently awaiting

This photo was taken with Lil Dad's phone while Luke was patiently awaiting surgery. You can see he is wearing his little hospital gown. The procedure went well. They were back home by noon on Friday. The doctor said he just didn't know why his ear drums had not ruptured because there was so much pressure. Thank God for His goodness and mercy. God is good all the time.

Luke having ear surgery on Friday

Ask I love my passie and I'll show you!!!!!!!!!

Even though Luke has been so sick, he is still so sweet. He saw the pediatric otolaryngologist today and will have tubes put into his ears on Friday. He has had chronic ear infections since starting daycare. Dr. said this should resolve this problem....I guess Luke did not want baby brother to have one-up on him for surgeries. Please pray all goes well. We are still believing God for these little angels. He hasn't brought them this far to leave them. God is good all the time.

We love to read our books and play on the floor with Daddy.

Help me brother!!! I'm me out here!!!! HAHAHA

We've started daycare

It has been a while since I have posted. Prentiss is still doing well after his heart surgery. As you can see below he loves his walker. He can "go so fast"! Lil Mom started back to work two weeks ago so the boys started daycare. It has been difficult for them. In just the short time they were there, they both have had strep throat and ear infections. They had 3 doctor visits in less than a week. They are much better now and have gone back to daycare.

Doesn't he look mischievous? Prentiss thinks it is so funny to see us run from the walker. It is murder on your ankles and toes.

Yaya the flash is too bright for my eyes. This is Luke.
Prentiss loves to wrinkle his nose at you.

Luke resting after a hard day at daycare.
More later. Going to cook dinner so Lil Mom won't have to when she gets home from work.
