Chatty, can you tell us why you are sad?

I hadn't been here since yesterday morning because we hosted our family Christmas party last night. Today we went to church, straightened, and then I took my youngest Christmas shipping. I thought of all of you and was dying to get back here to see what I was missing. Thanks for being my home away from home. I love you all!

Smile, Ross is doing well. He's trying not to take insulin with dinner. His system is definitely going through some changes. This happens every 4-5 years. God gives me tremendous strength during these times, but I have to say...I could take the disease and throw it out the window.

I concern myself with his low blood sugar levels and my daughter's high levels because she has to control her Diabetes with diet and exercise. Egads...

I still say the lord knew what He was up to when our daughter was diagnosed with Diabetes. You have to remember she is adopted! Of all the diseases He could put in our home...Diabetes is the one we know how to care for. It's a miracle. Don't you think?

Thanks for your concern and PRAYERS! I feel blessed. It's nice to be on the other end of prayers at times.

My room will have vaulted ceilings, miles of shelves and closet space, and a window that looks out upon a fruit tree (just like at home!! [Big Grin] ) It will be huge and there will be all kinds of artwork on the walls. I'll be on the highest floor of the house. We'll have 87 variety of birds in our yard. Also lizards.

Hey Christmas shipping! Is that where you get to ship your kids off someplace else?? Where do I sign up? [Razz] [Razz] [Razz]

Dotsie, I can't say I truly know much about caring for a family with diabetes, but I do know how the physical implications of that disease affect every aspect of medical care and it must be equally consuming at home.
I hope you can wrap yourself in the warmth of our concern and rest in knowing that we are in prayer.
And when we're in JJ's boomer mansion, we'll all be reading your best selling book while we munch on Chatty's yum yum goodies.

And Chatty, I hope you find a light in the darkness of your daughter in law's illness. I pray that she too finds peace in knowing God is with her at this time.

Our Wendys in the hospital since early this morning and the doctors are doing major testing. Now they say that the best case is its an infected gland and they can drain the poison and she'll be laid up several days OR it could be cancer but shes in for scans and whatever else they can come up with and my son will call me tonight with any news he has once he's seen her. She didn't want me or her older kids to come up there because she's in and out and we couldn't see her anyway, so we just have to wait. Please crank up those prayers ladies. This is one lovely sweet girl that has had all the bad in a life time anyone should have. Thank you for caring....I'm feeling silly today and I think its a self defense mechanism I use when worried sick. HEY! , Wendy just called me, how cool is that? She's had her tests and now has to wait until Thursday for the answers but God love her she sounds in good spirits and is on her way home with her daughter. Once she's feeling better I want her to join us Boomers, she could use you wonderful ladies love and support. [Razz]

Chatty: we're still praying and hoping for the best. You are not alone. We love you and care for one another!-We are a family and as such, we are sticking together. God is our Healer, Comforter, and Friend.

You are in my prayers as are all the rest of the boomers. It is so cool to have this big wonderful house on earth while we wait for our heavenly one.

Keep on Dreaming

Love and God Bless
