I don’t know what’s so bad about a bad penny (seriously, does anyone care about pennies anymore??), but I keep turning up like one, as the saying goes. I’d looked into starting a new (and more God-ish) blog, and there was no “Free blog” option! It’s not like I can’t handle $2.99 (I have a sofa with 3 cushions, a back, and 2 sides — there could be dozens of $2.99s in all that), but I don’t want my financial info out there in cyberspace via cards. So, I will have to go on bending your
ear eye, here.
Today, I became a great-grandmother. Well, as I see it, I’ve been that for the past 9 months, but as of a few hours ago, I can prove it!! His Mom had the roughest day of her life… ended up with a C-section, so my daughter and her husband were worried. All is well, and the child is truly beautiful to behold. Named after two Old Testament fellas, Asher Isaiah. 🙂 He was nearly 10 lbs., so I expect him to be required to purchase an airline seat even that first time he flies here to visit with us. 😉
In other news, DH is not doing well, and I wouldn’t say he’s hanging in there.. he’s pretty much down for the count. Broken rib pain, and torn muscle pain, and broken pelvic bone pain (and the 4000 bruises all over) are causing him agony with every attempted ADL, and to cough is to be hit by a train throughout his whole mid-section. He literally vomits from the pain, it’s that shocking. When he goes to acute rehab, they won’t administer IV pain med, nor hypodermic needle — only pain pills (much slower to work), so presently, everyone’s trying to find him a pain pill that will allow him to be rehabbed.
The potential good news about that is there may be a bed in the local acute rehab facility as early as this weekend sometime. If not, he’ll have to be shipped out to one of the two others, both of which are about an hour’s drive.
All in all, I’ve been deep in conversation with many corners of heaven for days, now. They never get sick of hearing from me. I hope you won’t, either.
