I'm ready for Spring...

Most of you know that I LOVE snow, and everything else that comes along with it...sweaters, bundling up, boots, and everything...especially during the holidays, but I am SOO ready for Spring. And it needs to get here quick! haha It has been so stinkin' cold here. We've been having windchills of -8 and -9. It's insane. I am soo ready for Spring.....where we can wear flip flops and short sleeves. lol Oh well, it'll come soon enough I suppose. :) Before long we'll be complaining on how hot it is! lol But, all in all...I wouldn't trade our winters for anything. :)

My Mammaw-UPDATED 02-09-08

Well, It seems like here lately there has been one thing after another happening. We found out this past weekend that my Mammaw (Dad's Mom) is in the hospital. She hasn't been doing very well. She has pneumonia really bad in one long and is having other complications as well. The Dr said that if she makes it 24-48 hours then we might have hope. But I think we're almost past the 48 hour mark and she is doing some better from what I heard today. If you think about it...please keep her in your prayers.

Update 01/24/08 PM- The Dr's are talking about letting Mammaw leave the hospital on Tuesday, but she will most likely have to go to physical therapy because she has lost all of her strength and can't walk or anything. The good news is that her pneumonia is getting better!!

Update 01/30/08 PM- Well, Mammaw won't be able to go home now. The pneumonia has gotten worse and is now in both lungs. We aren't sure as to what extent. And her lower lungs have somewhat collapsed. Yesterday, her throat was either shutting down or swelling up and she couldn't eat without choking very badly. They gave her some meds today to try to help that, and she was able to eat better today but if that continues then she might have to have a feeding tube. So, we'll just see what happens and continue to pray that God heals her.

Update 02/02/08 PM- We got a call this afternoon that my grandma has taken another turn for the worse... She is now in a coma, her white blood cells have gone back up, and the Dr has now said she may not make it through the night...maybe tomorrow. We are leaving this evening to go to Louisiana.

Big Mommy's Funeral

So, this weekend was very rough. Last night we had the Visitation for my Grandma. She looked absolutely beautiful! She looked like herself (before she went in the nursing home) and she looked so peaceful. She had a little smile on her face and she just looked beautiful. Today we had the Funeral Service and it was beautiful. All of this hadn't really hit me until today. So the day was full of tears and I miss her so much. But, she is now with Big Daddy in Heaven. We had a beautiful "homegoing" service for her today and if she were here, she would have been very pleased. We had church in honor of Big Mommy. She was such an incredible lady. She always cared for others before herself and we have so many wonderful memories to keep in our hearts forever. I love you, Big Mommy!

I want to say Thank You for all of your support, love, care, concern, cards, hugs, and most of all your prayers. It has meant more to me than you will ever know. I have felt the prayers prayed over me and my family these past couple of weeks and especially right now. I am forever grateful.

My Grandma

As most of you are aware my Grandma has not been doing well this past week. Big Mommy, as we call her, went Home to be with Jesus and Big Daddy this morning at 4:45. She had a peaceful passing and is now dancing in the streets of Heaven. She has no more pain, she can now remember everything, she has no sickness. I can just imagine Her and Big Daddy holding hands with my brother Bryan on their lap talking to Jesus. I can just imagine hearing Big Daddy saying to Big Momma...."Come on, Mother". After all, that is our main goal in life is to make it to Heaven. As the song says, "I Can Only Imagine".

Thank You all for the prayers you have prayed for our family the past couple weeks. We can definitely feel them. I love you all dearly!
