God Is Good

It has been a long long week. Grandma Chevy went into the ER on Sun Morn and it has been a roller coaster since. She had complications on Monday night and things just turned for the worse! But God always has a hand on things and he showed us this.

She has mild Congested Heart Failure, blood clots, and something wrong with her lungs. She was incubated on Tuesday Morn and is still on as of today. She is in ICU isolation because of the unknown sickness that is looking like Tuberculosis.

She had a good day yesterday considering everything. Today is a much better day! The doctors say that her organs are perfect with the exception of her lungs which are now stable. We will know the diagnosis today or tomorrow.

More good news - Mom's surgery was delayed for 6 weeks. God has his hand on all things. Tis' so good to trust in Jesus!

Memorial Day & TANS

I haven't written in my blog for over a week.. I have officially broken one of my new years resolutions! =( hahaha

It has been so busy. Mom's getting ready for surgery, my leg is still gimpy, and were hired a new women at work. Oh yes, and we went to an orientation for this weight management program. I liked it but it was so off the charts pricey. No way I could afford this!

We went to a tea house for our Mother's Day outing on Saturday, I will post some pics in the next blog post. We had such a fun day.

I am looking forward to this weekend! Memorial Day! We have our annual picnic! The best part for me is not having to worry about going to work on MONDAY! I am looking forward to swimming as much as possible and getting a much needed tan!

Happy Mother's Day Mom

Have you ever met the greatest women alive?
Have you met the strongest women?

I have met this women, she is my mama.

She amazes me with the strength she has obtained. She trust in God, never questioning, just having faith and believing. She always knows that things are going to work out for her and her family. I have never met a more patient person than my mom.
I want to let you know that I love you and admire you. You mean the world to me mom. I can't live without you (or at least that is what I believe) and I would just be a mess without your help.

I love you more than corn! Now that's alot of love!

Ripped Ligaments and Tumors

That title sounds so ew! It has been a long long few days and I am exhausted! It all started on Saturday, April 29th after 12AM. I fell off the curb in the fron of the house and ripped my ankle ligaments and tendons - it was horrific! Searing pain! I ended up suffering through the night and going to Hoag the following morning. They put me on crutches and wrapped it in an ace bandage. I though for sure it was broken... come to find out, the pain is worse than a break. Who woulda' thought!

Today I went to see my doctor and was determined to walk out with a cast or ELSE!!! I refused to walk on those murderous crutches again! My poor arms, back and good leg were about to snap from the pain! So I got a walking cast! I feel soo much better!!

Then while at the doctors office, mom found out that she has a brain tumor... it has most likely been growing since her first one 25 years ago. It is about the size of a strawberry and it will have to be removed. They are usually benign and easily removed, so this is wonderful news!

Don't be surprised if I come back on and tell you that there was no tumor once they surgically went in or if they do another MRI, it will be gone!! This would be by the hand of God only!!
