Updates

Man alive! It's been a LONG time since I've posted a blog here! Things are wild here at The Doublewide.
Yesterday was Big Daddy's 35th birthday! My sweet little sister called me and told me that she'd sit with mammaw while we went out to eat. I tried to find a babysitter for Lil R, but wasn't able to. After calling Big Daddy to tell him that we'd be going out to eat for his birthday, and that I was working on getting a babysitter, his reply shocked me. He said, "I want just the three of us to go out to eat--there's nobody I'd rather spend it with that you and Lil R." I almost cried because it was too sweet.
With all the stress that I've been under lately, he almost caused me to lose it---for real. I'm so thankful that God gave me a sweetheart like Big Daddy. He might not be someone who'll get up and do things without having a little prodding, but he's got the biggest heart! At the end of the day, I think that's what matters...it does to me anyway.
This afternoon Lil R was on my lap at the computer. He likes for me to go to YouTube and play the Bibbiti Bobbiti Boo video and he also love to hear The Chordettes sing "Lollipop." Today, he kept wanting to watch a bunch of other videos for kids and I finally had to tell him that I needed to go to Mammaw's and check on her. He stuck his cute little finger up in the air, and said, "No you don't mama--no you don't". I feel guilty for having to leave the house every hour or so to check on her, but she needs me too. Her bed sore is AWFUL! I won't gross you out, but if you're bored, google bed sore photographs--hers is probably Stage 3--maybe even Stage 4, and the packing and bandaging needs changing twice daily. I'm the only one in my family with a stomach of steel, so I don't mind. Bless her heart, she says she doesn't feel it, but when I see it, I'm like, HOW CAN YOU NOT?!
Anyway--I'm taking her back to the wound specialist this coming Wednesday. Please pray for healing and rest.
Have a great rest of the weekend. If it's not TOO muddy from all the rain we've had lately, I'm hoping to take some pictures outside while the leaves are still somewhat colorful.
Enjoy your day!
