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.
