Now Where Did I Put My Waders?

Didn't get to go to Judy's....didn't get to go to Gina's and Portia's....didn't get to go work at Winnie & Tulula's...power on and off all day yesterday...still no cable...couldn't get on line until late (stupid power issues)...over 9" of rain in my backyard...batteries on phones went dead...all in all, just a wonderful day in the neighborhood!Jenn & Roby did meet with the hospital staff on Tuesday and the meeting went well. Thanks to all of you for your prayers...God heard and answered. The doctor commented on how diligent Jenn is about keeping up with changes in routine and meds and the overall effect on Bella. He was quite impressed with hers and Roby's questions and answered all of them. He has already begun making the changes they requested and addressing their issues. Bella had to receive a blood transfusion yesterday and adjustments have been made to try and get her to start taking the bottle again. A major step back, but hopefully a short one, she has been put back on the C-pap machine for breathing. Jenn will be doing a post (with NEW photos and all the medical information) soon. Today Bella is 3 months old...can you believe it? I just can't say thank you enough. Y'all always come through for us and you always do it without a moment's hesitation. Is it possible to be in love with people you have never met? It has to be...I love you all!
So far now kiddies, I have got to get it into high gear so I can be ready to face the world tomorrow. I hope to see a lot of you here for the grand opening and hugs! If you can't come join the fun, here's me throwing you a big kiss!!! XOXO!!!

Sounds like you had an eventful Thursday. Hope to see you today. One step back, 2 steps forward (hopefully) for beautiful Bella.

Don't you just love it when you have plans all set up, but Mother Nature just decides to take over? Have a great time at W&T's opening tomorrow. Promise you'll have a drink for me at the end of the day, ok? Hope it's a lot of fun, Deb.

Debbie, I have been MIA in blog reading this week. Ack, I missed all the turbulence with sweet Bella. So sorry that things took a bit of a dip. But your girls have carried on thus far so I am praying for leaps and bounds in the next few weeks. Hope you are caring for yourself as well. You have a lot going on right now. Good luck with the grand opening and may all your sales be big ones. Love, Pam

I heard that Texas was being bombarded by the rain! We had it for weeks but it has finally started to clear. I was really close to erecting an ARC!

I hope you have a great weekend and sell EVERYTHING!!!

Wish I could be there!

I don't understand Texas weather, sorry I'm just a California gal with "no weather". Rain for us is when it drizzles real hard. Your family is still in my heart and prayers, and I so admire your daughters strength and courage! She is quite the kid. Good luck on the grand opening, you'll have a blast!!

Take care, Sue

You never think about things like electricity until you lose them, and it gets hot really quick! There's nothing worse than being hot and sticky, and without a computer! I hope that Bella recovers quickly, will keep her in my prayers.
Good Luck with your opening, but know you will knock 'em dead with your display!
I will talk with you when I return!
XOXO Carolyn

P.S. Just noticed that Bella is wearing the outfit that I gave her, and she looks beautiful in it, just as I knew she would! Hugs and Kisses to her and Jen!

Glad to hear you and your family are doing well! We got to spend some quality time with Sue & Joe (Bella Shabby) as they were our neighbors at Farm Chicks...lucky us! Hope to make it to TX soon. :o)
