Good morning, Allbodies. I hope you have a really good day.

Liz, I remember Amazing Grace. What a heart breaker. It sounds like little Bella is in a mighty struggle. She is so tiny to be going through so much. She is in my prayers.

Hello There.

What did you do today? Anything exciting?
Did you ever read a book about a set of black twin sisters back in the 70's who were from the Barbados' but living in the UK. They wouldn't speak to anyone but each other and when they became teens they set a series of fires in the UK. A judge sentenced them to a mental hospital until age 30. I saw a TV how about them last night, I bet the book would be interesting.
Their names are June and Jennifer Gibbon's.

We just got home from watching Noah at football camp where they scrimmage a bunch of other teams from the county. Geez, some of those kids make Noah look like a little peanut!

Murph I was thinking about what you mentioned about it being odd that they were letting Bella's Mom hold her. It sounds like it might have just been the once they let her be held, I'm not sure but you're right they usually don't let anyone hold the preemies until a certain stage in their development.
My niece had a preemie 8 mos ago who weighed 3.8 pounds. For the first week or so they could only touch the baby with a finger. Even after that they couldn't rub the skin, just gently pat her.

I had an exciting day, sitting at the computer fr 7 hours, hitting the refresh key, waiting patiently for someone to Talk to me.

Well....to tell the truth, I spent most of the day in bed.

My GS and his fiance were here this morning and she was having contractions and feeling miserable. She finally called her doctor's office (in a town about 45 minutes away), and they told her the doctor would call her and would probably send her to the hospital. The doctor called her and told her to go to the hospital here in town. They hooked her up to the monitors and put her on an iv. They kept her most of the day, then let her go home. She said she had gone through with her son, soon to be 4 years old. She says she is going to keep working until the baby comes. Not quite a month to go.

My cousin keeps bringing me Aloe plants and I keep accidentally killing them. The last one she brought, she said, "Don't Kill It." It is looking sort of sick and she is going to be here Thursday. I hope it holds on until after Thursday.

I haven't heard of those twin sisters, but it sounds like an interesting story.

We've had a lot of rain which is great for me because I would not have been able to get out and water.

I am excited about my Ya-yas coming. Can't wait!

Hello everyone, its 3am here and I just cant sleep. This has been a horrible issue of mine for awhile, most likely due to stress. I tried medication and it turned me into a zombie, so thats out of the ?. Also, I have a dentist appt today at 3, I am so anxious when I see the dentist. Even if its just a cleaning, but today I need a cavity filled. I am so not looking forward to this day.

Liz- I am so saddened to hear the baby took a turn for the worse. I am praying for her and sending positive vibes to her family.
Also, just to let you know, my bf never made it past 9th grade. He started working at a very young age due to having a child. That is why he has busted his butt doing labor jobs his whole life. We thought taking the mining class would be perfect, but it seems to have been a wast of money. Im not sure what politics have to do with it but I have heard so many coal miners rallying to open back up the mines. I am praying hard for my family to make it through these desperate times.

Murph- How is your GS's pain from the surgery? I hope he is feeling better.

? Has anyone heard from zazz? Havent seen him around in a few days!

Good morning, Allbodies. I hope your day is just what you want it to be.
We have been getting rain every night. There is standing water everywhere--no way the mowing man can get in, and the rain has caused the grass to grow really thick and tall. And shaggy.

Jordan, about 3 1/2 years ago, my grandson went through what your bf is going through now. He had to pay child support even though he had the child more than she did, and just couldn't find a job, even though he had graduated and had several hours of community college.
Every day he would drive to where ever there was any kind of construction going on. He would ask if they needed any help and, if they didn't, he would give the boss a little card he had printed himself. He had worked some as roofer's helper and drywall helper while he was in high school, and also construction clean-up.
He also stopped where he saw a yard needed mowing and offered to mow. He picked up several regular mowing customers and construction bosses who would call him if some of their regular help didn't show up. It was really rough and he barely made enough to pay child support, gas, and insurance. He did that for almost two years before he got a good job with good health benefits for himself and his daughter.
Your bf will find something, but I know it seems like it takes forever. Don't give up hope. Keep encouraging him and praising him for trying.

The economy is worse now than it was then, but there are still jobs out there. There are some employers who don't really care how much education a person has; they want someone who will show up every day and put in a full day's work and be able to pass the pee test. Keep praying.

Grandson is going really well after the surgery. He hates the sling, the box thing that fits under the sling digs into his stomach, and all the various kinds of tape they have used on the bandage cause a rash. --But, his shoulder is looking good and the pain finally went away.

Good Morning All
Murph I'm glad GS is doing better. How's your other GS fiance doing now? Did the contractions stop? The jungle theme nursery sounds adorable.
I'm glad this week is over. My taxi needed a break and so does Noah. This varsity football deal is kicking his butt. When I picked him up last night he looked like he was ready to fall asleep in the car.
Jordan did you check out the your local career builders ( it might be called something else). It might be a good avenue for your BF to pursue. I believe it's mostly just based on what type of work he's done before and what he's interested in doing now.
Good morning, Allbodies. I hope you have a really nice day.

Liz, my GS saw GS's fiance yesterday afternoon. She was working and told GD that the boss said she couldn't leave because they were short staffed. Her out of town doctor finally returned her call and told her to come there (45 minute drive) to the hospital. GS couldn't get off work, so she drove herself over there.
The last I heard was yesterday evening. Daughter was here and she called GS. By then, he was off work and over there with her. He said she was on an iv and they were giving her some kind of drug to make the contractions stop. He said his impression was that, once the iv was finished, they were going to send her home. Which means tonight, when he gets off work, he will have to drive back over there with someone, and get her car.
I really, really wish she had gotten a doctor here in town. This is too scary, thinking of them racing over there in the middle of the night, if the contractions get bad. 27 days until they are scheduled to do the C-section.

I'll bet that football practice was really intense. This is second youngest GS's first year of high school football. He has conditioning in the mornings and practice in the afternoons and some evenings.

I cannot believe he will be in high school this year. Of course, youngest GD, who is only 8 days older than him, started high school last year. They went to different grade schools and had almost identical scores on their state tests. One school believed in moving them up a year, one school believed in giving them accelerated classes. I'm glad GS didn't get moved up a year--that would have been a real disadvantage in athletics.

Good Morning All

Murph did you find out yet if the contractions have stopped?

It sounds like your GS football programs works similar to the one here. Last week and this week they have training camps. The week after will be double sessions of practice and the kids will get a idea of exactly where they stand. Actually they'll know where they stand, none of the positions are sewn up yet, kids have been leaving the program already because they know they won't get playing time.

What position does your GS play?

Yes, daughter said the iv meds stopped the contractions.

My Ya-yas came today. It was a lovely day. They hadn't been here since my birthday, so I not only got birthday gifts, but also gifts from Scotland and Ireland. Two of them just got back from there.

GS was running back in Middle school, but I don't know if that is where they will play him in high school.

Good Morning All

Murph that's good news about the contractions stopping. My cousin sent a note yesterday and said Bella might come off the ventilator this week-end.

What kind of gifts did the Ya-Ya's bring? Hopefully no more hoses. Did you all go out for lunch?

I hope GS gets to keep his running back position. It's tough when the kids get moved up to the high school level and there's already kids from the team in that position. Noah started off as a WDR and safety. The past couple years he's been a RB and tight end. Now that he's playing with the seniors it's hard to tell what the coach is thinking at this point. His Dad has been going to some of the practices and it looks like Noah has the tight end position sewn up but lost the starting RB position. So far during the scrimmages he's been in the slot position. Meaning the coach will tell him the plays and send him in as RB for a couple plays , then pull him out until they need him to go in with new plays.

Good morning, Allbodies. I wish you a lovely Sunday.

That is good news about Bella, Liz. I pray that she continues to grow stronger.
SOme of the gifts I got were a 'welcome' angel, a butterfly wind chime, and cooking utensils with Fat handles, that should be easy to hold onto. Some of the souvenirs were a real shamrock, a wolf rock, fuzzy black faced sheep for the fridge and a magnet with 4 fuzzy black faced sheep(she got one for all 4 of us, so that is now our official Ya-ya card) a wolf rock and something else wolf--I will have to look through them better when my hands aren't as painful.

I don't like for anyone to see me hobbling like this, so we went to our favorite restaurant, which is the one farthest from me, and I just went along to get out of the house. They said our order would take 20 minutes, so we drove around, then went back and got our food and brought it home. It felt good to get out of the house.

Word War Z, I hope your Sunday is wonderful, also.

I thought this was pretty cool: sometimes when my cousin is here, from a certain way she turns her head, I think she looks enough like one of my Ya-yas that they could be sisters.
Yesterday, when Nevaeh was here, she talked to all my Ya-yas but stayed by the one that I think looks like my cousin.
My ya-ya said, "Do you remember me?' and Nevaeh said, "Yes. You are Big Mama's cousin." --Guess I am not the only one who sees the resemblance!

DIL and GD brought Landyn. He was wide awake and being very sociable. They all got to hold him and love on him.

My cousin has always collected cookbooks. The tornado took her really large collection. Now, any time she goes to a flea market, she tries to find at least one cookbook.

Yesterday, daughter was in St Vincent De Paul and found a cookbook from Shawnee Mission kitchens, from 1946. It is all handwritten and has sketches throughout. It originally sold for $1.25. Get got it for my cousin. Cousin is going to Love it!

Hi Murph, thanks for the kind response. I think if just one employer would see what a hard worker he is, they would hire him in a second. When he does do tree work, he is the owners only employee. He uses him and it makes me so angry because he knows when they have a job he will bust his ass. So many customers have told the owner how lucky he is to have a guy like him because they've seen a crew of 5 not do what he does. And I would b!tch at him and tell him, slow down, your just makin this guy more money the more jobs you do and you get nothing more. But he tells me, I go to work to work, thats how my grandfather raised me. And it would make me so upset when he came home so tired and wore out, back hurting and ready for bed and the owner cant even give him a bonus for all his hard work. I mean, my bf could say im not doing all this anymore and he can hire another guy to help with the groundwork when my bf is done cutting and he would have to pay another guy like he did before the last guy quit over a year ago, and he just knows my bf is a hard worker and he can use him. I hope and pray everyday something great comes his way. He is always looking for side jobs, some have came through and some people just bs saying they want this done then never call. The child support matter is a whole other issue. I have a child and I fully believe in men supporting their children, but the system here is crazy.

I just want to let you guys know I am so grateful of your prayers, they mean the world to me.
