I was one of many millions watching this wondrous event and was amazed and awed at the glorious event. I am still reeling and of course there are others who could care less. It does not bother me. It is my day to share with them. It is a day I can say in 20 or 30 years and say I was there and remember it. (hopefully, lol!) Have you all a story to share of today’s events? If you do, please share them.
My father~in~law passed away today at 3pm. We were all there with him, surrounding him with love and kisses and hugs. He went peacefully.
They have been married for 55 years. They had 2 children. Janet and Jim. Jim is my husband of almost 30 years. Janet almost didn’t make it here in time to see her daddy alive. She got here this morning at 6am. The Lord saw fit for her to make it in time. He passed at 3pm. Now many family members will be traveling to see us from near and far. It will be a time for remembering and sharing. A time for mourning a great person, a time for putting a wonderful and precious person to rest.
Good bye daddy, we will miss you and know that you are in a better place. You will always be in our hearts and lives. You were a BIG part and always will be.
Today my husband called as I was walking out the door to go to physical therapy and he was crying. He said, “You need to come up to the nursing home with mom now, the hospice nurse and social worker are going to talk to us.” I didn’t know what to say. I was shocked. I hung up and told my mother~in~law. She was confused, as I was, but proceeded to get ready and we were off.
That was yesterday. Today he has declined even further. If you know someone or have lost someone, you may know the stages of dying. It isn’t pretty, and it doesn’t come instantly. So here we sit, waiting. we have called the family. My sister~in~law and husband are on their way as is her son. They live in Delaware and SC.
His vitals keep dropping, and they are keeping him comfortable. That is all that we can do right now. I ask for prayers that this will go quickly and peaceably. He has suffered so much. The poor man has dwindled down to almost nothing. He has had a good long life, and I feel blessed to have been a part of it. Yes, my life is fuller knowing this God fearing man. He has made my life richer and fuller just to know him. Not to mention he fathered the husband I have loved for over half my life!!! lol Gotta love that!
Thank you all for your love and support before hand, and I will keep you posted as to what is going on. Your the best bloggy buds out there! xoxoxoxo
My daughter went to her neonatologist appointment today. They examined all the chambers of the heart and told her that Delilah was fine! THANK YOU GOD! That was great news to my lil ears. They took lots of pics too. (I will post those when I get them) She is only 3.5 lbs at the moment. She is in the 37%ile of her peers. So, she is pretty tiny. I call her petite. Jin and I are both small ladies. And her daddy is not a big man either. So….lil tiny thing, she comes by it naturally on all sides.
Thank you for all your kind words and prayers. Please continue to keep them lifted up in prayer for her to gain weight and be healthy. She may have to deliver at Sacred Heart just to be safe. She has to go back and see him again in 4 weeks for a follow up. Just to be safe. Thanks again me bloggy buds! have a great week~end!
ok, lil face, on its side, look closely, it is just her head, her fat lil cheeks, eyes, nose and chin. The line on the right is the top of her head. It is not a very clear ultrasound, but hey, when your looking inside someone’s tummy? I will take it!! See you soon Lilah Loo!!
My daughter found out today that her (in utero) baby Delilah has an arrhythmia. It is not known as of yet what type. The doctor seems to think that it is the valve that closes at birth. Her other daughter Molly had this same thing when she was born. He also told her it was common. I don’t know about you, but I don’t ever remember this being a common thing when my kids were born, do you? Are they having new diseases nowadays? GEESH!
Her hubby is still deployed, well here in the states. He will be home in this month. He is the type to worry when it is unwarranted. Bless him. He can’t help it. Jin is doing Ok, but Nonna and Papa are a little worried. It comes with the territory of being parents. Ya know? Then grandparents. She goes next Thursday to see a neonatologist at a special hospital in Pensacola. So, please keep her in your prayers as well as her little family.
Also, just to let you know, my FIL is not doing well at all. He had a very bad urinary tract infection last week. He is at the end stages of his disease, and since he is requesting no heroic efforts to sustain life, he is on HOSPICE care now. The antibiotics are not doing anything for him. He is refusing food. He will drink some, but that will not sustain him very long. It is just a matter of time. They will keep him comfortable. God bless him, he has fought this battle for several years. Our family has been through a time. I think it is a blessing for him. My husband and MIL are not doing so good. Please pray things go peaceably and quickly for them. Thanks so much. You all are so great. Updates to come.
So how many of you got snaggled? How many got taken? How many of you really fell for your friends pranks and antics today? (Me is raising me hand very high and hard!)
Yup I did! My middle sister who is not the funny one or the jokester in the family, except for this one day a year…texted me. She lives in Nebraska. I am in North Carolina. She says, “Go look out your front door.” So I text her back as I walk to the door and open it, all the while thinking, WTH?? (I don’t say the F word, folks. That’s my sister, C!) Anyhoo, another text….”did you do it?” I said yup. She said, “There should be someone pulling in shortly!” Well our cleaning people just got there I told her. She said NO! not them! Then my MIL came in and said what’s going on? I told her, and she said is she playing a joke on you? Then I realized it….DUH!!! (I should of slapped myself, but didn’t!) So…I texted her, APRIL FOOLS!! At the same time, she sent me APRIL FRIGGEN FOOLS DAY!! So, it was like a tie….I think.
Anyway, some of the pranks she pulled at work: she put a sign on the ladies restroom door: PLEASE USE OTHER DOOR!
Then she put a post it note under everyone’s mouse, and wrote April Fool!!
As if that was not enough, she took a brown paper bag and stuck it in the fridge with the words written on it: Squirrel
This is my sister that usually has no sense of humor and gets me and C pretty upset sometimes. But today…well she got us good. OH! She called C’s house and said put the coffee on, I’m on my way. And.never.showed.up! LOL
Let me know what happened to you today or what you heard went on. I love a good laugh, usually at someone else’s expense! I’m taking notes, so next year I can get my sister back!! So please leave me lot’s of comments!
