Happy Birthday Matt . . .

Dear Matthew.
It has always been a joy to call you 'son'.
Congratulations on all your accomplishments
& enjoy that new little granddaughter of yours.


Matt is holding his nephew, Tommy.
Matt is President of Laborer's Local 310 in Cleveland
but he's still on the job site everyday.
His latest project is building the Cleveland Hilton Hotel.
It has to be finished in time for the Republican Convention in 2016.

Good job and God bless you!

She's here . . .

Great grand #3 was born today. She is my son, Matt's first grandbaby. OMG! My son is a grandfather. Holy cow! Thanks to Jackie and Steve for the blessed treasure they added to our family today.


Giving up on the 365 challenge . . .

Don't know who else in Chatterbugs was doing the 365 challenge except Lori and me.  

Anyway, I did pretty good with this posting thing until this month.  It was a fun activity and I took the challenge pretty seriously.  I fully expected to complete it but apparently that won't be happening.  Just by way of an explanation . . . 

I went to the ER on 9/17 and was in the hospital for 4 days.  That put me way behind in the 365 entries.  I tried doing some 'catch up' but that hasn't gone good either.

I'm home but I'm not bouncing back like I usually do.   In fact, the breathing isn't that much better than it was before the hospital admission.  WTH!  This isn't supposed to happen but it did so I'll just have to accept what is and go from here.

Joyce was kind enough to take me to see Dr. Bhatt yesterday & he's made some changes to the medications so perhaps that will help!  Please keep me in your prayers.  Thanks.

Time out . . .

I'm cooling my heels at Highlands Regional Medical Center.  I've had breathing problems since last w/e so on Thursday, Joyce came & got Dahli & 911 came & got me.

I was doing much better until I woke up this morning with swollen ankles & feet. Oh no! Looks a whole lot heart failure to me.  Too many fluids so instead of going home today it's WAIT until tomorrow.  Better news then, I hope.

Please keep me in your thoughts & prayers. Thanks.
