Merry Christmas to you and a blessed day for me

I hope you all have had a day filled with peace and happiness and that it was spent with loved ones and freinds.
As many of you know this past June my 38 year old son had a major heart attack and for the past three months my husband has been extremely ill and got a pacemaker just 3 weeks ago.
Being able to sit down our table with both of them today and enjoy a wonderful Christmas feast was the greatest blessing I could have asked for.

Today- the scope and the doctor that did it were quick and it is good news- the doctor did not see any cancer- just a lot of thick mucous plugs that my husband can not cough up. When they lay there in the lung they get infected and the pnuemonia develops. He washed out his right lung and when hubby is better he will start on breathing treatments to help keep the plugs from forming. Hubby is now at home- yippee!!

Hospital Again

Please say some prayers for my husband and me. He was admitted to the hospital again today- pnuemonia and fluid in his lungs.
I am hoping he gets cured this time.

This is the Plan

The bathroom should look similar to this- with some prim decorating thrown in!

Hoping for a quick fix!

We are needing to have our house appraised and the back bathroom vanity is horrible- it has a wood grained contact paper veneer on it- I am on the process of painting it black but it isn't easy over the contact paper- hopefully it will look better when I am finished- the whole batroom will be re done- as economically as possibel and still look good- I hope!

I'm Stitching!

Things have finally settled down here enough that I can do some stitching and crafting- this is what I am working on now.

Thursday, October 6, 2011

Thank You

The scope revealed a very small polyp that they removed but no bleeding- so.. they think the bleeding is in the small intestine- they decided to not have him swallow the camera that would travel the 23 feet of small intestines as they think the bleeding is very light and the only way to fix it is to remove the area that is bleeding. So he will have frequent blood draws to check his hemoglobin- if he starts needing frequent transfusions then they will reconsider using the camera.
Hubby is now home. I want to thank all of you for all of your concern and prayers.

Pnuemonia, Anemia, Transfusion, Colon Prep- Oh My!!

The plan was to have new things to post on here but.. hubby ended up in the ER last Saturday afternoon and was admitted. He had fluid in his lungs and on Sunday they found pnuemonia, his anemia keeps getting worse so today he had a plasma transfusion and tonight he will get a colon prep and have a colonoscopy tomorrow. He is tired of the hospital stays and I am so ready to find out where he is bleeding from and get him well!!

Thank you for the prayers

Thanks to everyone for their prayers.
He has no bleeding in the brain or stomach so that is good news. They still don't know where the bleeding is and his kidney function is still worsening but he will be seen by a kidney specialist later this week. It is amazing but he still looks healthy!

My Hubby is Very Sick

A few weeks ago my husband started having some mild stomach pain and some nausea.
After 5 Dr. office visits and an ER visit he was admitted to the hospital yesterday.
He takes a blood thinner and they now think he may be bleeding in his stomach and possibly his brain. His kidney function is also deteriorating. A ct scan of his head was done last night but I do not know the results yet. They are going to do an ultrasound of his kidneys today and also a scope to his stomach.
Please keep us in your prayers.

I am writing a book about Anna...

my ggg grandmother Anna that is. As many of you know I have done a lot of geneaology research and this pioneer grandmother has fascinated me the most. She was born in olde Virginia to families that were among the earliest settler's there. She bore many children and endured many hardships and when she was in her 70's she traveled by covered wagon to live in Indian Territory. I guess this book will be considered historical fiction as I have accurate dates of events but of course not being there I had to try to fill in the details so that will be the fictional part. The picture shows how I want the cover to look but.. I have discovered that having a book published is not as easy as I though it would be so the cover may change by the time it is published.

I am currently on chapter 13 and have no idea how many more chapters there will be.

I am hoping to have it finished soon as I think this book would make a great Christmas present for those that love the pioneer/ priairie look and lifestyle and enjoys reading about that era.

Stay tuned- hopefully it will be a finished book soon!!
