Snow days.. the best!

We have been having a great time with the snow days, I know some of my friends are ready for the school to be back in session because they have fighting kids and such but yesterday we all were laughing here so much, I almost hurt myself. Jeana is one of the funniest little people I know and she makes me laugh all the time. Jana the older one, well how can I say it.. she is just a easy target! So we were all playing on the computer yesterday and reading every one's 25 random things and I had commented on some one's that I knew something was wrong with them because they liked chunky peanut butter. I then got a extra dig in on my hubby by saying he like chunky too. So Jana and I were laughing so hard at that and then she realized and said HEY! I like chunky peanut butter too! I laughed so hard at her. So that set Brian to laughing and so she started acting all indignant and walking through the house. Jeana at the same time was creating a SHOW.. She said as Jana was walking through, Hey you can't go back here you have to have a pass a backstage pass.. (Jana ignored her and kept walking) then the next thing we hear is Jeana yelling SECURITY! SECURITY!.. it was the funnies thing and Brian started laughing all over again.. Good ol' Hannah Montana. I'm sure that is where it came from.

Super Bowl party..

So We are having a super bowl party. Yes I know I hate sports but it is for my husband. We invite our Sunday School class and some other friends over and those of us who don't care about the ball game can gab and stuff our faces with all the yummy food. Brian's birthday is the week after the game so he considers it his birthday party. We did this last year and we had so many people we couldn't fit them all in our living room. So this year we moved all the furniture from the living room into the family room. We had gotten a larger TV in the Family room this past summer but have not gotten furniture in there mainly because it's full of Jeana's toys. But it is connected to the Kitchen and therefore more people can sit in it and we can have a better party. So we moved all the toys to the living room and all the furniture in the family room. As soon as we did it I sat down and started thinking.. This room needs painted. I hate these curtains.. I will make myself crazy by the time the superbowl comes around. OH well that's just me!!

Feeling peaceful.

Just a quick note to let you all know, I AM doing ok. I am feeling peaceful about my Grandma. More than anyother person I have ever lost before. It seems like since I have gotten back things have just been crazy, Jana had a make up concert the evening we got back and then some theif broke Brian's window on his car and stole his School laptop. YEA! He had to drive around in the cold for a few days but we got it fixed friday. In the meantime, I didn't want my oldest freezing her fanny off getting to school so I have been burning the gas driving across town and taking and picking her up which adds time to my already busy schedule. So I am glad to have the extra day off for Martin Luther King Jr Day. But I better get off here. I promised to post some old pictures of my college days at NSU to some BSU friends and I also promised to watch a show with my husband and tomorrow we are rearraging the furniture so we can have a Superbowl party. Later about that. For now I have to go.

In Memory

Mamaw went to be with our Lord last night late. Mom called this morning. I don't have any more words right now. I'm glad she is no longer suffering and I will always miss her.

Monday, January 5, 2009


Hey I will try to make it short, Mamaw is worse today her leg has turned purple and black in the thigh area and the lower leg is cold and white. I don't remember if they said she had a pulse in the bottom part of her leg. Her pulse/oxygen is like 80. They did get her on hospice and finally got her some morphine so she won't have so much pain. She is not responsive to anyone much. The doctor said it could be 2 days to 2 weeks depending on which order her organs shut down. He also thinks this clot is not related to her fall since she has congenital heart failure. So please just pray for my family, my Grandmother is saved and we are ready for her to go to be with the Lord. We want no more pain for her. This has been such a long time in coming and I don't want to remember her that way, or for her to feel lost, imprisoned, or alone. I know she is not alone but she doesn't know it anymore.
Just on a side note if you will please pray for my cousin Jennifer, she is not talking to anyone in the family for some reason we don't know, she won't return any one's phone calls for 2 years now. And I so want her to get to say goodbye to our Grandmother, I think it will bother her later if she doesn't get to. Maybe this could be the turning point for her to come back to our family. I don't know but I do know......Jeremiah 29:11 (New International Version)
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Thanks to Beth Moore for reminding me and my sister for giving me the book she wrote it in. I was reading that today, and it helps me tonight, God always slides it right in, his words fit everywhere.

Crazy stuff

Just a quick update... I was planning on going to church tonight but got waylayed by the phone. My Mom called and said they had to transport my Mamaw to the hospital last night about 1am. They called my aunt around 11pm and said she was complaining of pain in her leg but not the leg that she fell on (she fell before Christmas and had to have her leg x-rayed cause they thought she might have broken her hip, it was just bruised) She is not really easy to understand because when she starts hurting she gets real manic and the weekend staff at the place don't know how to deal with her. So they call my aunt and my aunt doesn't want them to transport her because this is like the 4th weekend in a row they have called and want to take her to the hospital. They mostly don't know how to pacify my grandmother. Anyway she wants to talk to the Doctor that told them to transport her and they give her the number. She calls and he says that she can stay and he will come see her tomorrow and he will call them and tell them NOT to transport her. My aunt calls them back and they have transported her anyway and so my aunt has to drive from Enid to OKC at 1am and she has already taken her pain medication that makes her sleepy so my Mom stays on the phone with her in B'vill till she gets to the Hospital to see what is going on. Turns out she is complaining about the other leg and not the one she fell on but they have already x-rayed the other leg before my aunt gets there. She has a blood clot in the other leg so they gave her some blood thinner and pain meds and sent her home with my aunt. They wanted to transport her again but that would have cost more $$$ and would have made my Grandpa mad. So my aunt took her back and gave the people the meds and paperwork that said they should be able to put her on hospice. This was at 4am. She went to her apartment in OKC and slept for a while. When she called they said mamaw was fine. But when my aunt went to check on her she said she was pitiful and saying she hurt again. They had not given her the pain meds and they had lost all the paper work about the hospice and medication. This makes me want to bang my head into a wall because if they don't have paperwork about the medication they can't give it to her. My aunt was calling the doctor to find out if he took it when he saw my grandmother today. This was the last I heard and so I may update again, Later today. Oh and the doctor in the hospital said this clot may break loose and cause a stroke or a heart attack for my grandma but the other treatment is surgery and no doctor will touch her with her history. Not that we would let them she is DNR already.
