Well, the good news first...

THE BAD NEWS... my husbands daughters are both pregnant, his older daughter lost her baby today.. it was an etopic pregnancy.. this is her fourth pregnancy, after the third failed pregnancy, she lost a tube, and this time they took out the other tube..

I can't imagine what it is like to feel that disapointment of losing babies four times.. just pray that the Lord will give her comfort and peace, and take away her sadness.. and to be thankful that the Lord has given us what we have thus far!
God is good all the time, and all the time GOD IS GOOD!

Good news!

My Grandpa Martin is home.. he is feeling much better.
He is still a little weak, but is in much better condition.. I hope you will keep him in your prayers.
I thank you for all the little comments of encouragement, for my Grandfather and for my husband, Roger.
MARTIN is in California now, and hopefully we will see him Sunday!
Have a great day!

Senior Pictures...

everyone is tagged to put up a senior picture... big hair! what was I thinking!!!!

Just stopping in ...

Well, Roger is doing okay, I guess.. he has his MRI tonight and he is at another doctor for his knee, this morning. He went to the eye doctor yesterday, to rule out glaucoma.
My mom says that Martin is going to be in the United States on Thursday! YAY!!! that means he is somewhere safe! He should be back home here in Saginaw, at the end of this month.. they have to be in San Diego to debrief and get counseling for a couple of weeks. He daughter is due on the 20th... we were hoping that he would be back in time, but we're not so sure now... but having him home at all is just a blessing..
Well, I am going to be a (step) Grandma! my husbands daughter, Gequita is due in October.. I look good for a grandma! :-)
I took Isaiah and my nephew Alex to the Library yesterday.. I used to take Isaiah with me to the Library when he was a baby, but I am sure he doesn't remember.. so this is the first time for both of them as "big" boys. It was so cute..everyone kept asking me if they were twins.. they loved the books and had a great time, and were such good boys.
The weather has been really nice since Sunday! I am hoping that the snow is gone for the season, but we will see, Michigan weather is so was so nice not to have to wear tights or nylons to church on Sunday!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

well, we were in the ER again last night.. until almost 6 am... Roger was starting to have wierd feelings in his left arm and felt dizzy. They took him right back and his blood pressure wasn't super high.. for him.. but high for someone normal!
Anyways.. they did another cat scan on his brain, due to the dizzyness and the left arm feeling funny.. well, they said that there was an abnormality and now he has to get another MRI and an MRA to see what is going on.. pray for him.. he is scared now..I left Isaiah with my mom and took Kendall with us because I had to breastfeed.. he was such a good boy!
Okay, I have to go, Kendall is crying.. I am sooo tired today!

more on Roger....

well, the doctor called today and said that the Ultrasound on Roger's liver came out okay and that the mass they might have seen on his cat scan could have been a shadow or something.. That is a relief! and an answer to prayer.. But his blood pressure is still high and we don't know why he is having this problem.. so the doctor is going to re adjust his medication and try a different dosage, and he has to go to the eye doctor to see if maybe it is glaucoma or something in his eyes bringing his blood pressure up..
Thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers, it is so nice to have friends that are praying...
Kendall is trying to stand up all the way and is all over the place! I am sure he will be walking very soon.. I am excited, that way I don't have to carry him in his car seat anymore! he is over 22lbs and oh so very heavy! :-)

BUT they saw a mass in his liver and they want him to get an ultra sound on wednesday morning.. she has already made his appointment for him when she called me..I'm kinda nervous about that..
I am praying that the Lord will take control and I am claiming good health for my husband and for strenght and patience for me...
right now I feel aweful! I am so stuffed up and have a terrible headache! my allergy doctor told us to get hepa filter room air purifiers and I think it gave me and Isaiah the sniffles! the air was blowing kinda cold...wierd...
so that is the low down..
also an update on Mr Brady from my church, his illness is an incurable cancer in his blood! it can go in remission, but not be cured.. his family has to wait a couple of months to go to u of m to get a a marrow transplant, so please pray for him and for his family.

cute things kids say.....

These have to be original and genuine. No adult has ever been this creative.

JACK (age 3) was watching his Mom breast-feeding his new baby
sister. After a while he asked: "Mom why have you got two? Is one for
hot and one for cold milk?"

MELANIE (age 5) asked her Granny how old she was. Granny replied
she was so old she didn't remember any more. Melanie said, "If you don't
remember you must look in the back of your panties. Mine say five to

STEVEN (age 3) hugged and kissed his Mom good night. "I love you
so much that when you die I'm going to bury you outside my bedroom

BRITTANY (age 4) had an earache and wanted a pain killer. She
tried in vain to take the lid off the bottle. Seeing her frustration,
her Mom explained it was a child-proof cap and she'd have to open it for
her. Eyes wide with wonder, the little girl asked: "How does it know
it's me?"

SUSAN (age 4) was drinking juice when she got the hiccups.
"Please don't give me this juice again," she said, "It makes my teeth

DJ (age 4) stepped onto the bathroom scale and asked: "How much
do I cost?"

MARC (age 4) was engrossed in a young couple that were hugging
and kissing in a restaurant. Without taking his eyes off them, he asked
his dad: "Why is he whispering in her mouth?"

CLINTON (age 5) was in his bedroom looking worried. When his Mom
asked what was troubling him, he replied, "I don't know what'll happen
with this bed when I get married. How will my wife fit in?"

JAMES (age 4) was listening to a Bible story. His dad read: "The
man named Lot was warned to take his wife and flee out of the city but
his wife looked back and was turned to salt." Concerned, James asked:
"What happened to the flea?"

TAMMY (age 4) was with her mother when they met an elderly,
rather wrinkled woman her Mom knew. Tammy looked at her for a while and
then asked, "Why doesn't your skin fit your face?"

The Sermon I think this Mom will never forget.. this particular
Sunday sermon..."Dear Lord," the minister began, with arms extended
toward heaven and a rapturous look on his upturned face. "Without you,
we are but dust." He would have continued but at that moment my very
obedient daughter who was listening leaned over to me and asked quite
audibly "what is butt dust"???

update on my husband.....

just wanted to tell all of you thank you for praying for my husband .. this week has been crazy.. we thought he was getting better because the doctor changed his medication and his legs went down a little on the swelling. Tuesday night he was in the ER at covenant because his blood pressure was 170/126 and they couldn't get it down and they couldn't figure out why it was soo high.. his eye was blurry and he had a headache. They sent him home and he went to work the next day still with his blood pressure high... they sent him to the er from work because it was 178/130 and he had chest pains, dizzyness and he was experiencing numbness in his face and his legs... we went to st mary's er instead of covenant this time and they took him right back and really did a great job to stabilize his blood pressure a little bit. they got it down enough for him to go safely home and he felt a bit better.. thursday he went to our family doctor and he sent him to get a test on his kidney, thinking that this might be why his pressure is so high... and he went this morning for that test, so we will see. his blood pressure is still high 150/116 I think.
thank you for praying for us and we covet your prayers... we hope to see you all sunday, Lord willing.. Roger says he is coming, too! Praise the Lord!

Before I was a mom.....

For all you Beautiful Mommies!!!!

Before I was a Mom

I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby.

I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous.

I never thought about immunizations.

Before I was a Mom - I had never been puked on.

Pooped on.

Chewed on.

Peed on.

I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts.

I slept all night.

Before I was a Mom

I never held down a screaming child so doctors could do tests.

Or give shots.

I never looked into teary eyes and cried.

I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.

I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.

Before I was a Mom

I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to

put them down.

I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when

couldn't stop the hurt.

I never knew that something so small could affect my life so


I never knew that I could love someone so much.

I never knew I would love being a Mom.

Before I was a Mom -

I didn't know the feeling of having my heart outside my body.

I didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby.

I didn't know that bond between a mother and her child.

I didn't know that something so small could make me feel so

important and happy.

Before I was a Mom -

I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every

10 minutes to make sure all was okay.

I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache,

the wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom.

I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much, before I was

a Mom.
