NOT DEAD YET..BUT TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT.

HERE IS WHAT HAPPENED....

I GOT UP BRIGHT & EARLY SUNDAY MORNING AROUND 7:30 & WENT INTO THE LIVING ROOM.

(THE DAY BEFORE THAT I HAD NEARLY SLIPPED UP AT THE BBQ IN THE SHOES I HAD ON.) WELL I HAD THEM SAME DARN SHOES ON SUNDAY WHEN MY RIGHT FOOT HIT SOME WATER AND IT WENT UP IN THE AIR.

I FELL BACKWARDS AND HIT MY HEAD AND ARM ON THE BIG OAK ROCKER THAT DADDY BOUGHT ME WHEN I WAS PREGNANT WITH AMANDA.

I REMEMBER THINKING WHEN MY HEAD HIT THE ROCKER THAT IT SOUNDED LIKE A WATERMELON HITTING PAYMENT AND THAT I WAS GONNA DIE LIKE MY B-I-L…WITH A BRAIN HEMORRHAGE.

THINKING BACK NOW....I MUST HAVE PASSED OUT CAUSE WHEN I CAME TO MYSELF; THE PUPS WERE ON MY CHEST TRYING TO GET ME TO GET UP....BUT WHEN THE ER DR ASKED ME IF I HAD; I TOLD THEM NO......I DID NOT REALISE IT AT THE TIME.

BUT WHEN THEY ASKED ME WHERE ALL THE SCRATCHES CAME FROM ON MY CHEST....WELL, THAT SHOULD HAVE TOLD ME THEN.

AFTER I CAME TO MYSELF...I REACHED BEHIND MY HEAD AND IT WAS PUMPING BLOOD...SO I KEPT MY HAND PRESSED ON THE HOLE.

BY THIS TIME; DAN CAME AND I WAS TRYING TO GET HIM TO BRING ME A PHONE, SO I COULD CALL 911 BEFORE I PASSED OUT CAUSE...BLOOD WAS EVERYWHERE..AND HE; BEING SCARED...WELL, HE KEPT RUNNING AROUND AND AROUND THE HOUSE.....AND DURING ALL THIS, I NOTICED THAT MY LEFT ARM AND WRIST WAS NOT SHAPED RIGHT ANYMORE AND WAS JUST HANGING IN A WEIRD WAY.

I FINALLY GOT DAN TO STOP AND COME CLOSE ENOUGH TO WHERE I WAS HALF LAYING, HALF SITTING IN THE FLOOR....TO GIVE ME THE PHONE...

AND THEN I CALLED 911....I KEPT WONDERING WHY THEY DIDN'T ANSWER AND FINALLY I NOTICED THAT I DID NOT EVEN HAVE THE PHONE ON. I WAS SO SCARED I WAS GOING TO PASS OUT FROM LOSS OF BLOOD BEFORE THEY GOT THERE AND DAN WOULD HAVE BEEN TERRIFIED.

I FINALLY GOT THE PHONE ON …DON'T ASK ME WHAT I TOLD THEM...BUT A POLICE WAS THERE IN A HEARTBEAT…AND THEN TWO AMBULANCES. SO...I WENT TO ATHENS REGIONAL IN THE AMBULANCE.

ANYWAY...I WENT TO THE ORTHOPEDIC DR TODAY AND HE SAID IT WAS A REAL BAD BREAK.

I HAVE GOT TO HAVE SURGERY. EITHER FRIDAY OR MON. ACCORDING ON IF THE SWELLING IS DOWN.

I HAVE A HOLE IN THE BACK OF MY HEAD THE SIZE OF AN ORANGE...SO MY HEAD HAS STAPLES IN IT. I NEARLY BROKE MY TAIL BONE ( YES THEY X-RAYED IT TOO!) THEY THINK MY SHOULDER IS DISLOCATED. ...AND POSSIBLY MY ELBOW IS MESSED UP....NOT MUCH LEFT IS THERE????

EXCEPT THAT I AM OVER $8000.00 IN DEBT SO FAR…..

LIKE I ALWAYS SAID...

WHEN I MESS UP...

I DO IT RIGHT.

( COPIED FROM A TEXT TO MY ADOPTED SIS...SORRY ABOUT ALL CAPS )

BUT GOD IS STILL GOOD…IT COULD HAVE BEEN WORSE…AND MY SIS DORRIS IS HERE WITH ME DOING MY HOUSEWORK AND HELPING ME ANY WAY SHE CAN, GOD BLESS HER…

THANK YALL ALL SO MUCH ALL YOUR PRAYERS….I DON’T KNOW WHAT I WOULD DO WITHOUT YALL.

GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

I FELL

JUST A QUICK ENTRY TO ASK YOU ALL TO PRAY FOR ME.

YESTERDAY MORNING AROUND 7:30AM I SLIPPED UP IN SOME WATER . MY RIGHT FOOT WENT UP AND I FELL BACKWARDS…HITTING MY HEAD ON MY BIG OAK ROCKER….BUSTING IT OPEN.

I ALSO HIT MY LEFT ARM ON IT…

I NOW HAVE TWO BROKE BONES IN MY WRIST AND STAPLES IN THE BACK OF MY HEAD ….

GOT TO GO TO THE ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON WED. MORNING…THEY MAY HAVE TO DO SURGERY ON MY ARM. IAM IN SEVERE PAIN…NOT TO MENTION I AM WORRIED TO DEATH ABOUT MY BILLS. I WILL HAVE TO HAVE 500.00 UP FRONT FOR THE  SURGEON…AND I WILL BE OUT OF WORK AGAIN FOR I DON’T KNOW HOW LONG.

PLEASE PRAY FOR ME.

GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

CRIB RECALL

               HELLOREDROSE

Just wanted yall to know that there has been a recall on a certain baby crib….

A baby has died because of a safety issue….please see below:

Delta's Recall Hotline: (800) 816-5304
CPSC Recall Hotline: (800) 638-2772
CPSC Media Contact: (301) 504-7908

Infant Death Prompts Recall to Repair 985,000 Delta Enterprise Drop Side Cribs; Missing Safety Pegs Can Cause Entrapment and Suffocation Hazards….

For photo’s of the crib and other important information go here:

http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml09/09017.html  

Please help to get the word out about this…There were so many  of these cribs sold in many, many stores. We don’t need anymore babies dying.

We took little Wyatt for his four month check up today. He now weighs 14. 8 pounds. He also received his new round of immunizations…three shots….1008081549

Yes he cried…and his Granny cried right along with him.

Oh, I know they are for his own good…but he was laughing and babbling so happily and then the nurse stuck him…He looked up at us with those pitiful baby blue eyes as if to ask “ why did you let them hurt me???” and my heart broke.

Soon enough he was feeling better, but his Granny wasn’t! lol

Funny…I don’t remember it affecting me this way with my own two…Guess I’m getting soft in my old age, huh?

GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

MOTHERS

000e01c91cad$ee3e4cb0$6401a8c05MA22689957-0008

Well, I made it through another work week….and only had a minimal amount of pain. It is still there, but I can deal with it as it is now…It is nothing like it was...and for that I am grateful Lord. Thank all of you for your prayers and concern too.

I was so happy to turn the news on and find out that they found the little six year old boy that had been kidnapped from his home in Nevada…and he was alive! Thank You Jesus. Apparently men dressed as cops knocked on the door of his home and his mother opened it. The men burst in and then bound and gagged his parents and kidnapped him at gunpoint. It is a miracle he is still living…He was found walking alone…. in front of a Church.

Now, only if there could be a miracle for little Caylee Anthony ; the little three year old girl missing from Orlando…..God bless her little innocent heart. I keep praying that they are wrong; but the woman who is suppose to be her mother has been charged with murder; (though they have yet to find the baby’s body)

I say suppose to be, because I am not willing to call a person who kills their own baby the sacred name of Mother.

True Mothers LOVE their children in unconditional terms, no matter what. They will PROTECT their children from any and all harm and will FEED their child before feeding themselves. They make sure their babies are SAFE…

And most importantly…

A  MOTHER  will fight off hell and all it’s demons for their child.

Mothers  however, do not ever kill their children for their own personal gain….That is not a Mother…That my friends is a monster.

I went to see my mama today, God bless her. (I took my sis with me.) She is more and more into her own world…but you know what? She tells  me every time I see her that she loves me….and never fails to give me a big kiss. She may forget a lot of things, but she has not forgotten that she loves us.

And when the time comes that she does, it won’t be because of her own selfish motivation, it will be because of a disease that has taken away her mind. She gave up so much for her six children…so very much…and had a life filled with pain and dirt poor poverty.

Oh, she whooped  us…( seems not hard enough for some of us) and yes,  she even yelled at us…and ‘tortured’ us with her sermons on why we should behave and act better…

But she never once stopped loving us…She never stopped protecting us…She never ate before  we did….and She dang sure never ever put her own self before us.

That my friends…

Is a TRUE MOTHER.

GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

IS IT TUESDAY ALREADY?

             0925081926

                     Sundown on my Street!

Yep, I think it is Tuesday….Funny how the week flies by untilyou have to go to work! lol

Today, I woke up with the dang pain again in my left side and when I had to go to the bathroom…more pain. I am hoping this stone or stones are about to move…I really hope the pain is gone by Thursday when I have to go back to work.

           1004081458

I brought Wyatt  over to my house today. I needed a day with my little buddy….He is teething…putting that little fist of his in his mouth and chewing on it…and drooling. Dan helped me with him while I cooked and cleaned the house. Let me tell you; He loves his Uncle Dan…Let Dan come into the room and say one word and Wyatt will look around until he finds him!

            carlenehavingfit

I am so mad at myself that… I could eat a bug. After I took Wyatt home, I ate supper. Then I laid down on my bed trying to ease the pain in my side….Well I went to sleep…and slept right through “HOUSE”….one of my favorite TV programs… :-(     ( Anybody see it? )

           leavesbkg

The weather here is in the high 80’s…It is suppose to cool off Friday. I sure hope so. I do not like hot weather…Especially in the Fall of the year! It just ain’t  normal, is it?  ;-)

Not long til we have to go vote….Well some folks here are already voting …. ( They have the vote early thing here.) I don’t know when I will vote…but I do know that I will vote….It’s not only the patriotic thing to do….It’s called…

Being an AMERICAN CITIZEN !

Well, the  pain is back…so I think I will go lay down on my bed again

And this time;

It won’t matter if I fall to sleep! ;-)

GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

I Made It

          CarleneSazzyKreationzVictorianElegance

Well, I made it through Saturday…thanks be to God. It was hard, but I did it…and if I sound proud of myself…I admit that I am….Before, when Danny was living, I would never have even tried to make it to work….but now….

Well… now times have changed and I have to put my big girl panties on….not to say I was ever a wuss… :-) It’s just this pain has had me down on my knees, literally… but as long as it will hold off, I believe I can make it.

So what did I do with my two day paycheck??? lol…I went and got groceries…yippee!!! I am clipping grocery coupons now and actually saved over $6.00 by taking the time to use them….I think I may even have enough left to get a little gas for the car too…which is nearly on empty.

My phone bill is due next week, so I pray that the good Lord will let me work again nest week, so I can pay it. My car insurance is due next month, but I will worry about that one later…

This morning, I went and got my sister Dorris and we went to church . The choir sang a song that I liked for me…and the preacher had put me on the prayer list…This truly is my church family, so I am glad that I can go to my church now . You see, after Danny died, I could not sit through a service without crying. It took me over two years, but I am finally able to.

Afterwards we went to see my mama out at the nursing home. She has Alzheimer's, so it is rough sometimes on your spirit to see and hear your mama like that…but today was a good one for her. It seemed like her memory was not quite as bad as usual.

While there I gave her a manicure…and pampered her a little. We took her some cookies and candy and she really loved that! lol (Fortunately she can eat anything she wants.) I found out she loves cow tails…no not real ones! There is a caramel candy named Cow Tails that I took to her today…and she loved them! Yes…I will be taking them again. :-)

You know…I have found time and time again, that if we can just stop and be still…then we can hear God when HE tries to talk to us…and HE will find a way for usin HIS own time.

GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

BACK TO BASICS

              bunnyhello-1

I dragged my body out of bed this morning and forced clothes on this old body….unfortunately bills do not stop coming just because you are sick and can not work.

What with all the journal madness and such, I don’t know if I told yall about going to the ER or not…Well, I did…and they found blood in my urine and something about proteins??? Anyway they said I had a kidney stone and wanted to do a CT and dye job on me the following Monday.

         bunniestwo

I had to hurt all weekend and when I went to the hospital that Monday, the lady there in the registration office said it had to be scheduled…I told her that the ER doctor did it the Friday before…She said…”ok…I need your insurance card”…I said I no longer had my insurance…she said “ok..Then that will be $1284.00 up front”….

I was shocked…I said,” can’t we work out a payment plan?”…and she said…that “this is NOT a free hospital”…Heck I didn’t say it was…I have never gotten anything free…why start now at this late date…Of course I didn’t say this…only thought it…

What I did say..was …”well…ok…I see”…and as I started out the door…the lady said..”You should have went to the ER and they would have done it there”  I told her I did go to the ER and the DR. told me to wait till Monday because there were no radiology techs there on weekends…….she said”well he wasn’t suppose to do that”…

but he did

       fallpumpkinkitties

So I have been here, at home, for over two weeks, trying to give birth to a kidney stone…fighting a raging kidney, and bladder infection…and after 4 different types of antibiotics, plus a bag full of the strongest kind in the ER…I have also been fighting a yeast infection of the mouth, throat and other areas of my body…The bottle of stuff for that was over $50.00.

girlandkit

So I dragged my self to work today. I kept praying that the day would hurry up and go by…By the end of eleven hours, my left side and back was killing me so bad that I kept hoping the dang kidney stone would just fall out….but it didn’t.

Tomorrow I go back again…..Please say a prayer for me.

GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

MY GRANDSON

Want to show y'all some photos of Wyatt that were taken today...
Look at this one :

Yes the pacifier is pink! lol
Wyatt doesn't care though...He loves it! I had this one and a blue one...His mama lost the blue one...:-(
So I keep this one at my house and he LOVES IT!!! I think it is because the nipple is big and different from most I have seen. It is a brown nipple, large; but sort of short and stubby. I will be trying to find him a blue one...but in the mean time ...he gets what he wants at grandma's house! :-)




Look at him holding his little hands! If I sound like I love this little fellow... it may be that...I do......with all my heart.


He is getting ready to roll.....in one split second he will be over onto his little belly. He is moving now! He can roll over faster than I can move!!! I believe he will be one of those kids that will roll, then walk..instead of crawling! lol
Grandma's little sweetheart
He is growing so very fast! Can't tell he only weighed 4lb.15oz at birth now! He has a good appetite. His little naval hernia has gotten smaller...he has to go back at the end of this month to check on it and the two that are in his groin....Keep him in your prayers, OK?
An while you are praying...Will y'all please keep Lori's daughter in your prayers...She is almost due and her baby is breech...Also please pray for Helen and her husband Ken...She had back surgery today.
I am feeling some better. I am still having some trouble with my kidneys and it seems like when they get one thing fixed; the other goes wrong...but I will not give up.
Having no insurance is really bad...but there is not much I can do about it...Even if I had insurance....I would have had to drop it by now for sure ...What with being out two weeks with no money at all coming in.
God will take care of me though...
He always has and always will...
So I am not going to give up on Him now...
After all...He has never given up on me...
Not even when I gave up on myself.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

Can you see the faces that appear in the upper lefthand portion of the picture? I took this on Sept.25 while walking the pups.
********** UPDATE***********
[PLEASE LEAVE YOUR BLOGGER URL IN YOUR COMMENT SO I CAN PUT YOU ON MY FOLLOW LIST.]
So here I am... again. I had forgotten that I had this blog from a long time before and it's password was giving me grief when I tried to leave a comment on someone elses...I hope I have it fixed now.


Don't ask what or why....it has driven me crazy enough for all of us. :-(


Anyway, just wanted to update so I could get the url straigtened out...if yall hear anything before I do about the AOL tranferring process, please let me know ok??? It takes my old brain a while to adjust and learn new things you know.


BTW...I ate solids today for the first time in a while...One thing about all the pain and infection..I have lost 9 pounds! Wouldn't want to do this on purpose though.


Think I am ready for bed now...


Yall take care

and

GOD BLESS YOU ALL
