Our Angel Baby needs your prayers!

I just wanted to post a quick note about my latest grandchild. She was born a week ago wednsday and mom was about 6 1/2 months. She weighed in a 2.9 lbs and is now in the Pedi ICU. She is not doing very well. They were tube feeding her untill tuesday when they tried to up her feedings by an oz. She had blood in her diaper the next morning. They shut off the feedings and did some X-rays and discovered she had an infection in her stomach. She is now on TPN for feeding, that is a high concentrated IV feeding. Her veins kept blowing so last night they put in a central line IV that is going into one of the main arteries of the heart. She has become listless and we are waiting patiently for her to pull through this. In the last 3 days she has had 2 blood transfusions.

I would like for anyone who reads my blog to please say prayers for her. She is so tiny and is fighting so hard to live.

A Stormy Week!

Well this week started out with a bang. Lots of wind and some rain on Mon, than tuesday rolls in with some more wind and rain. Finally on wed, the day of our big BBQ at work in comes the really nasty black clouds and lots of rain. Here are a few shots I took of the weather. These were some pretty nasty black clouds and out of these come tornados, I have posted a pic of one of those also. This was taken by one of the news storm chasers last year. When you get up close and personal with one of these it does get pretty scarey.

Spent the day with the grandkids today, I sure do have fun with them. We took them to the local dollar store and gave them each $5. Savannah bought a package of the tiny snickers bars, a red model wig that had a comb with a bow attached, a bunch of flowers to give her mom on mothers day and I can't remember the other. I am proud of her that she remembered her mom with that money. Jakob got a circus clown on a Unicycle that he promptly stepped on and broke, a little parachute guy, ball to knock over bottles with, a puzzle that he spilled water on and a water gun. Unfortunately he did not think of his mama.

I took them both to my friend who cuts my hair and she cut all of our hair. We all look quite nice in our new hairdos. Oh, I almost forgot. I gave the cowboy quilt to my friend at work who is really into cowboy stuff. Well one of the other therapists made her a little pair of crocheted cowboy boots. I think these are the cutest things I have ever seen and I had to post a pic on here. REMEMBER, I DID NOT MAKE THESE. SHE DID!!!!
Well that is all for now. There may not be any posts in the next three days. I am working sat, sun and mon on my 12-hr shifts. Hope all the mothers out there have a wonderful Mothers Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Savannah Sews

Well I spent the day vegging out. I ordered the movie PS I Love You on pay per view and sat and sewed and cried. This is such a good movie for anyone who hasn't seen it. One of the neat things about sewing is that when you are doing it sometimes those around you want to get into the act. Who am I to deny my beautiful granddaughter a lesson at my favorite sewing machine. We used a bandanna and made a pillow for her great-grandma.

I love my children and I never thought I would be able to love another child as much as I had loved them, but becoming a grandmother changed that. The love I have for these 2 children is so much different and so much more precious. It is a chance to try again at changing a part of their lives for the better. My grandson is a special needs child and I think his kisses and hugs are so much sweeter than others. He is a joy to be around as is my granddaughter.
