I can't believe how long it's been since I last posted!
{15 days to be exact}
Bad me..
There has been a lot going on all of the sudden in our lives...
Long story short...
I am having difficulties breathing so I had a stress test....
that went well...
Breathing test showed my lungs working at 90%.
My doctor wants me to have a heart catheterization so I am going to see a cardiologist for a second opinion!
{ doctor is a 3 hour drive one way}
He sent me home and said "DO NOTHING"
That is not an easy thing for me... I have raking to do, flower beds to clean, a garden to plant, spring cleaning yadda yadda yadda and all I do is sit here thinking about all I have to do!
** PLUS **
Our oldest daughter is expecting in June and is having some difficulties so she is seeing her doctor twice a week.... once for an exam and once for a fetal stress test.
{her doctor is an hour and 1/2 drive}
Needless to say I am spending way too much time in waiting rooms and on the road!
My bum is sore from sitting too much! :-)

Below are some of my favorite pictures from our Easter weekend!
We had several egg hunts that weekend.....
I think that was their favorite thing to do.

This is Madison Rae... she is 10 months old
Our cuddly lil princess!

Madisons' brother Austin and sister Miley Cirus... oh I mean Coral Lynn

Miss Emma sharing her eggs with baby Madison!

** Grandbabies are such a blessing **
Have a wonderful weekend

I pray that you feel better soon. Although, living with a chronic illness I know how there are seasons one can gain illness fatigue.

Being a grandmother is wonderful, isn't it? My grandchildren live 1,000 miles away but they may be visiting in early June.

I'm not getting my hopes up too much since all kinds of things can happen with their Daddy's work which would mean they couldn't get away.

Oh sweetie, you take it easy and get plenty of rest. Praying for you! What sweet grandbabies you have there!

Hugs and Blessings,

Those little sweeties are so cute Dolly!
Now make sure you do rest up and do nothing, we don't want you to over exert yourself ~ I hope all is well and that everything will be fine xo

Kathleen Grace said...

I will be prayng for you Dolly! I think a second opinion is good for any major medical work. No matter how much work you think you need to get done, it is more important to be here for your family than to damage yourself by doing too much! Please take it easy! I'll bet you can kill some time cuddling those grandkids, that sounds like more important work to me anyways:>)

Lori said...

Dolly, your babies are adorable!!! i will keep you and your daughter in my thoughts and prayers:) take care of yourself!!!

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

I will pray for you to feel better soon!! The grands are so sweet..m.

Hi Dolly,
So nice of you to visit me. I will keep you in my prayers dear. I went through a season that I couldn't do much and so my heart certainly understands how you are feeling. I didn't have the wonderful world of blogland then. Why just think of the friends that you can make and visit not to mention the wonderful crafts you can give you hand too.
But whatever you are doing while idle just know that there are prayers for your health being said.
God Speed

Dolly said...

Thank you Thank you Thank you dear sweet friends.....

Your prayers, warm wishes and caring advice is greatly appreciated.

Its so hard to stay idle......

I love you girls. May God bless you and keep you healthy and safe!
