Happy Birthday To Me.......

Update.......... We have had Dad taken to hospital in ambulance .. He has pneumonia. Thanks for your prayers....:






Well, today I am official Social Security! Checks start in May! WHEW!!!!!!!! There were times in my life did not know I would live this long.......... !! ha!


I am better today but in no wise able to go out......... My sweet hubby brought home movies last night for this weekend. A beautiful card was waiting for me when I finally got my self out of bed.......... Medicine seems to be kicking in and chest seems to be loosening up. I sound a lot worse than I am now......... Dad is very sick and we are watching him close. It will be ER for him today if he is not better, and they will for sure admit him.
I am very thankful for every birthday. There were years that I would cry and be depressed for days especially the 50.

Today I am thankful to the Lord for each day. The Lord blessed me with Dennis about 10 years ago now and the last ten years has made up for all the years before. How grateful I am to the Father God for 62 years of life.......... I will rejoice and be glad......... Thanks for all the prayers and I will take pictures of a couple of things that I have received this past week maybe tomorrow.:



I have taken my medicine for today and need my first breathing treatment now then another cup of coffee and it is off to my easy chair.

Love you gals a lot!

(I would share a piece of cake with EACH of you were you here!)

Sick and Sicker

Girls....... I am still so sick and really appreciate all your prayers...... I am trying to rest but Dad now has bronchitis and was getting him in and out of Dr. yesterday and new medicine today...... Mother is in a terrible state and something is causing her to claw her arms and legs till they bleed.... they have put her on a nerve pill today. They say it is her nerves and nothing else.....She has her left arm so red and bleeding that I needed a nurse to come and look........ I feared she had blood poising............ but thankfully just raw from her nails........... Nurse suggested to me that I cut her nail back as far as I can . I will do that when I am better......... bless her heart....... her short term is down to about 3 minutes..... .I discovered that when I do not stand and watch her take her medicine she throws it in the sink. I had to cancel her appointment with the neurologist because of my sickness on Monday......... now it will be anther 3 weeks...........

I spent most of the day over there with them getting medicine and calling nurses and Dr's........ I just covet your prayers as my breathing is still tough and I am supposed to be resting after these breathing treatments......... I know you will pray.................My birthday is Saturday and looks like I will spend it right here with my sweet DH and my breathing machine............

I will be in and out of here some but mostly will rest tomorrow...........

My Friend in India Needs Your Prayers


Some of you will remember that I have a precious friend name Chris that is a missionary in India.. He is taking the gospel to the people of his Nation.......... I heard from him tonight and he is very sick with the chicken pox....... Please pray for him......... He is doing a work among the poor of his nation that is bringing the love of Christ into many lives................

God will hear us and God will heal him............


Dad at Comedy Barn!! WATCH IT!

You have got to watch this! Do not stop in the middle and turn your speakers up!!! I laughed till tears were rolling down my face.!!! It is worth every bit of the 9 minutes...............!!!

It was sent to me from Sandy over at Flip Flop Floozie

WATCH IT! YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY FOR THE TIME YOU SPENT!

update from my Dr. I have pneumonia ..... So he has ordered bed rest...... in my comfy chair is fine. Lots of reading for me the rest of this week...........



Trip To The ER


Just got home from the Emergency Room.... guess I am a not getting better......... Had a bronchial asthma attack and bronchial tubes filled up.....
They were wonderful when I got there and got me in pretty quick.. Dr took one look and listened to my chest...... Got a big old shot of cortisone to clear my lungs, a big old shot of antibiotics to clear the infections. Chest x-ray and then a breathing treatment. Kept me a couple of hours until my breathing got better.. Sent me home with cough medicine and Medrol dose pack (6 days of cortisone) antibiotics for 10 days. I have my own Nebulizer (breathing machine) here at the house and have to use it three times a day until I get to breathing better.

Thanks for the prayers and I would appreciate you praying a bit longer.......

My HARVEST !!!!

Oh I am so sick here! But wanted to share with you my harvest !!!!
Had to laugh so wanted to share the laughter...........

4 years ago when we fist moved out here to the country, I found 4 asparagus plants at the local flower shop and being the avid "got to be in the dirt" person I had to plant them. I was told by several people that they are hard to grow so not having any faith in my gardening ability I put them on the south east corner of my house.....thinking that they would not live so no need to worry about them being so close to the house...
I have babied them and studied about them and fed them and talked to them and even prayed about them........ They are beautiful in the summer with their feathery appearance (they would look too good in a hanging basket) But alas never bearing any delectable fruit of the vine........I gave up hope and thought maybe I would put them in a different place, maybe in a hanging pot!

Me and my DH just love asparagus........ Smothered with cheese........ YUM!!!!!!!!! So in order to dine on the tasty veggie, I have to go to Wal-Mart and pay a high price for our addiction............

BUT I was wondering around the yard the other day and walked around to the south east corner and brushed away the leaves that the Maple tree had spread across the yard and what do you think I found!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Asparagus !!!!!!!!!!!
hahhahahhahahah

I am going to cook it today for my DH....... I will sacrifice myself the delectable morsel !






I am headed back to my easy chair with my Vicks and my Vaporizer and dream about an increase in my harvest! .........

I hope you had a little laugh ........
