About Me

My photo
I am a person who loves life and loves capturing it in pictures and recording it in many ways. I have been happily married for over 40 years to my wonderful husband Mike. We have raised 4 daughters, were foster parents for 11 years and are now raising 2 of our grandchildren. They are the love of our lives and the light in our eyes. At this time in our lives, we would expect to be planning for retirement, but instead we are planning for the future of these children. Starting over so to speak. At the ripe old age of 50, I found myself as a mom of a pre-schooler again so it's the second time around for us, thus my title. We attend church and teach Sunday School. Life is never dull, as you can imagine. Enjoy the pieces of our lives and allow this grandmother some bragging rights occasionally, ok very often.

3rd Time's the Charm

So, the new and improved larger tube they put in yesterday was defective. The valve had a crack in it.
Soooooo, they will put in a THIRD tube at 2:00. Mike said if they would just take him to Home Depot, he could fix it himself. The good news is, it's a short procedure and they will give him some "I don't care" medicine. As soon as the procedure is done, we can go home! He is in good spirits and the pain isn't as bad as it has been..
Yesterday I lost my car keys in the hospital, which is kind of a big place to search. I called security and they had no keys turned in. I went back to the restroom I visited upon arrival and came out looking flustered I sure. The two little volunteer ladies sitting at the information table asked me if I needed some help. I explained I lost my keys.... They held up my keys and said "These keys?"
They said they had been sitting there for hours wondering whose keys they were. I told them I had called security but they didn't have them. They said that they were going to give them to security but they hadn't been by their desk. So I hugged them both and returned to Mikes room to pack up and leave. When I came back down, they were gone with a sign that said to visit the after hours info desk. I never would have found them because I had already called security before I began searching . I just appreciate how God orchestrated the whole situation so I could find my keys. So, if God cares about the little things like lost keys, He's definitely got this cancer thing in the bag.

Specific prayer request for the new tube to be in good working order.
That Mike would continue to feel better & eat more.
We have a good visit with the oncologist Thursday.

Our Sunday School class is providing dinners this week and the first one was delivered last night .
It was amazing! We have an awesome group of friends in our class. We love and appreciate every one of you.
