A Little of This and a Little of That

Not a lot going on in my life right now. It seems it is dialysis one day and tired the next. The weather is beautiful and I did sit in the sun a couple of days. I feel like I could do so much more if only my feet did not hurt so much from the numbness and gout.

I had my fourth surgery on my arm trying to get it ready to use for dialysis. It will make my life so much better if it will work. The date for trying it is March 2nd. Please keep me in your prayers. For those of you who turn on the shower and get in and let the water run over you, be very thankful. I have not had a shower since June. I use a hand held hose and have to keep the site where they do dialysis dry. When I wash my hair, I have to lean side ways to keep the site dry. WHEN the arm starts working, I am going to get in the shower and stay till the water runs cold.

We very much want to go see Kellie and her family in KY but I need to get stable with this site before we go. If I let myself, I get very depressed thinking about how I just want to get in the car and go. It is going to be quite a trip for us but we are going to do it. I am ready to see those grandchildren.

Monica and her children came down last week and we enjoyed the visit. It gets kind of lonely sometimes. Of course, just like Marcy, Monica works the whole time she is here. Carrington and Clayton worked too. Clayton picked up leaves with Ed while Carrington helped me with my room. Just wish they could come and we could just visit.

The one high lite of my week is our Bible study on Monday nights. I have learned so much as Ed teaches us each week. I have been in church all my life but was never taught the Bible like now.

I cannot believe our first granddaughter will graduate from high school in May. I watched her come into the world and have enjoyed every minute I have spent with her. Her parents have done an amazing job teaching and training her. She is a beautiful young lady both inside and out.

All three of our daughters and their husbands are teaching and training their children to love God with all there hearts and they live that before them each day. I am so thankful that each of our daughters married godly men who are supportive of them as they stay home and teach the children. Not an easy job. All of the grandchildren are a pleasure to be with and we enjoy and treasure each one of them.

Cherish your families.
