Busy week for me

This has been a very busy week for me. Monday, was Heather's birthday party. Tuesday, I took my pretreatment shot and had another dr appt and some tests ran. Wednesday, I cleaned and made a huge stock pot full of veggie soup. It is so yummy. And I love sharing it. We all need to eat more vegetables. Also spent some time with my birthday girl. Thursday, I took our elderly uncle to the dr and had another dr appt for myself. Friday, I left early and went and spent the day with a very dear friend. Got home late. Found out while I was gone that my father-in-law was in the hospital. Problems with his kidney functions. Woke up today to a phone call that he has several bloodclots in his lungs and legs as well. The doctor told him he was a miracle!! That he would have died shortly with these undetected and untreated AND he was blessed that they are not the kind that break down and travel as they dissolve. His just dissolve and stay in place!!!! Thank God for that. He will be in the hospital several days and on meds for a long time. But much better than the alterrnative!!!

Also today was our sweet baby Shayla's 6th birthday and her party. She is so precious to us. Love this lil niece so much.

The years have flown by it seems. Went to her party and the local kiddie pizza/playland place (What a money rip off!) and to the hospital with sis to see her Papa. Home to catch up the housework tonight and give my fur babies some loving. This ole girl is not used to so much running. But you know, it was good for me to be busy and be out and about. I am so happy I was ABLE to do what I needed and wanted to do. God sent me the energy. And the gas money. Both I am grateful for. This week I am hoping to be crafty and have some new pics to share with you. I am sorry I am behind in all my blog reading! Will try to get caught up with everyone.

I will leave you with this thought.

What a little doll baby Shayla is. I'm so glad to hear that you keep getting up, and are keeping that devil down. I'm glad you're father-in-law will be okay with treatment. My daddy was less fortunate as his blood clot traveled to his heart. This was in the 1969 when he passed. I know it was his time to go. You keep on keepin' on Angela;o) -firecrackerkid
