Very Cute....Love their little faces.
Carla took the words right out of my mouth, Chris. Even the little boys are darlings!
Oh my how cute are those!
Thoughts and prayers needed. Mom fell early this morning (about 12:50 am). Have been at the hospital from 1am until 9pm tonight. She burst her T12 vertebrae and will have surgery at 8am tomorrow (Sunday). We have not told her she is having surgery, hoping she will get a good night's sleep. The doctor gave us all the pros/cons of surgery at 97yo. The pros outweighed the cons. Off to the hospital at 6am so we can see her before she goes into the prep room for surgery.
Will do, Wilma. So sorry you, she and yours have to go through this.
Thoughts and prayers are with you all, Wilma.
I’m prayer for her and you! Keep strong! WOW she’s up there in age hope all goes well.
Well the water supply is all hooked up. Furniture back to it correct spots. Pictures hung. Rugs set except my kitchen haven’t found them yet they are the thick cushion chefs mats for in front of the stove n my work area. TV up n running so now we can lounge n watch the tube. Kitchen almost functional except the cantilever with work lights and good over stove which gets worked on this week. Got the lights so hubby n son can get the proper fit. I’m starting to cleanup my sewing room too! Sheesh I have as many quilt books as I have cook books!
Surgery was a success. Doctor said her heart rate, breathing on own after tube removed and blood pressure were amazing for someone her age. Now the fun will begin. ICU again tonight, regular room for next 2 days and then off to rehab/skilled nursing for a couple weeks. She will wear a protective vest/brace for about 12 weeks. The challenge will be rehab with dementia...thanks for thoughts and prayers.
Glad to hear. She certainly has a strong constitution.
Nice to hear surgery went well. Keeping you in my thoughts.
