My cousin's wife is doing well...thank all of you who have contacted me letting me know you are praying for her and donor family/loved ones.

Doctors and nurses are very pleased. Some fluid around a lung. That is common they say. Drain tube and mild diuretic keeping that in control. Weening her off one medication so they can start weening her off respirator. Responding to nurses commands and opens eyes when my cousin/her husband and their daughter speak to her. Heart is working beautifully! So very much to be thankful for and to praise God how he is working in this miracle in our family and this miracle leading to other miracles/healings as well.

A good friend of mine back in school days of years way gone by and growing up in beautiful Mathews County... Who also is the wife of (41 years this July) my dear first cousin after being on transplant list for almost two years got her new heart last night/early this morning.

Wonderful news is this is now beating on it's own in her body. Next 48 hours critical for her and her new heart.

If you pray, please keep her and her family in your thoughts and prayers.

AND also keep in your prayers the family of the donor who gave our family this wonderful gift in the time of their deep loss and time of tremendous grief.

If you are not a prayer...keep them all in your good thoughts.

Thank you so much!

Bad, Bad, Blogger

My oh My I am a bad blogger...last time I blogged I had just broken my foot! Well...I switched groups and went to the one I have past history with and trust. He told me it was not bad, he saw no need of surgery, the boot was all I needed. Went back month ago and 90% healed...go back end of this month. Apparently takes as long for the last 10% as it does for the first 90% in the healing process.

Memorial Day morning I looked out my kitchen window and saw several deer in my backyard. Grew up in the rural country and never saw a deer except along roadside near woods or victim of an accident with vehicle. Live in the "BIG CITY" and see deer it seems all the time the past year or so. By the time I found camera they were in neighbors back yard behind mine.

Laura is playing T-ball. Hope she follows her mom's footsteps and play baseball with the boys! She and sister Rachel are both riding two wheel bikes learned in a couple hours. Emily is ripping behind them on her trike.
I did polka-dotted initials on t-shirts for the girls their mom bought for Memorial Day and the Fourth of July

These were taken at Memorial Day cookout.

I'll try to do better...
