He is also starting every conversation I have with her with "Hi Grandma" which he says plain as day. I will confess it melts my heart. Just wanted to show you a picture of his new book shelves that daddy made for him out of rain gutters. I thought it was soo cute! Sam LOVES his books, so I have a feeling this will be a big hit in his new big boy room...
|HE IS READING THE VIDEO BOOK THAT GRANDPA AND I MADE HIM FOR CHRISTMAS. I GUESS HE LOVES IT, BUT MOM AND DAD HAVE HEARD IT ONE TIME TOO MANY, HAHA|
Other than that, our visit yesterday with the neurologist went very well. He has prescribed a new medication HOWEVER!! it is the same medication she has been on, but it comes in a time released form now so he is hoping that the steady stream of it in her bloodstream will keep the seizures away, and yet we will NOT have to go through an actual drug change. I am soo excited about this. Guess time will tell, but I am VERY hopeful that this will be the answer to our problems, and SUPER excited over the NO drug change at this time. Meanwhile poor mom is still struggling with her injuries from the fall (which btw the neurologist said more than likely caused the latest small seizure, not a medication problem ~ also good news!) and her primary care doc has ordered an MRI and we are waiting for authorization. Meanwhile, the neurologist got through an authorization on a cat scan and so we are hoping to "maybe" get that done today. But mom can just barely walk, and is quite a bit of pain. I wheel her around in her wheelchair when we have to be out, and here at home she struggles along with her walker. Sooo hopefully we will have more answers on that soon.
It was 96 degrees here yesterday and this house just really is not insulated well, so I popped on the air conditioner late in the afternoon, and was horrified when I realized it wasn't working! So today a repairman is coming around noon, and hopefully it will be nothing expensive to fix, and it won't be when we need to maybe go get the cat scan done. It is not suppose to be quite as warm today, which I am grateful for. Not quite ready for BLAZING heat yet. I know lots of you have had some snow again this week, which is soo hard for the So. California gal to fathom.
I am TRYING to wrap up the bibs and burp cloths this week, but we have been soo busy it hasn't happened yet. I have a total of 13 bibs for Larissa, which does seem silly, but like I said I am mainly using scraps and trims on hand, and it only takes about 15 minutes or so to do from start to finish, so why not? Drooling, spitting babies can go through several a day as I recall. Anyway, here are the "new" ones I did this week. Some of the ones I made were just repeats of ones I already made for Melody. Melody only got 7 btw, haha, but she has LOTS left over from Sam.
|LOVED THE BEE ONE! THE BOTTOM HALF AND BACK OF THIS BIB IS DONE IN YELLOW TERRYCLOTH. SOO CUTE!|
|THIS ONE HAS THE FLIP SIDE OF BRIGHT AQUA BLUE TERRY CLOTH, YOU CAN KIND OF SEE IT IN THE STRAPS|
|SWEET LITTLE TURTLES...THIS ONE WILL HAVE A MATCHING BURP CLOTH|
|LOVED THIS CUTE FABRIC!|
Guess that's about it for now. Looking forward to another hopefully (God willing) relaxing week-end. OH! and one last post. My son posted this on Facebook yesterday for National Prayer Day....maybe you can join us in praying for our Nation. Enjoy your week-end, and God's blessings to you all!
Heavenly Father, You are the Creator of Heaven and earth. You have been so gracious and merciful to the United States of America over the years. Yet Lord we know that we are on borrowed time. We have turned out back on You in many ways. We have kicked you out of our schools, our courtrooms, and our government. Our sins against You are many; abortion, murder, sexual immorality, drunkenness drug abuse, idolatry, greed, lies, and selfishness. Lord you would be totally right to bring Your judgement upon us, for we are guilty But we cry out for Your mercy, we cry out for Your grace! According to Your abundant mercy and loving kindness, please forgive us Lord. The nations of the world identify Your name with the United States, God glorify Your great name! Lord Jesus bring revival to Your church, baptize us afresh in Your Holy Spirit! Add to the church daily such as are being saved, as the gospel is boldly preached. May we repent with all of our heart and turn back to You personally and nationally. Oh Lord, forgive! Oh, Lord save and heal! Not because of who we are but because of who You are. But no matter what Lord, we will worship and obey You. For Yours is the Kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever, in Jesus name, Amen.
