and I think I'm in a fog...most evenings as I reflect on the day, I'm not sure where the day went...it truly is a blur. Josh, Katie and the kids came in a week ago Thursday for Mom to meet her new great grandson, Peyton Wells Crago, for the first time. The doctor said they could travel by car with him at 2 weeks and bless his heart he turned 2 weeks that very day. They were here over the weekend and headed back home on Monday. It was truly the most wonderful 3 days...we just couldn't have asked for anything more. Mom spent many hours holding Peyton, and when she wasn't holding him she was playing Matchbox cars on the coffee table with Hampton or coloring and reading with Camden...Hampton also tried to teach her how to play Angry Birds on dad's IPad...we laughed a lot and shed some tears...it was the BEST family time. We took a few minutes to take a new Four Generations picture with the addition of Peyton.
A picture that we will all treasure.
Not much sewing going on here...most of my time is spent with Mom, or taking care of stuff for her. We had a hematologist appt on Tuesday and her blood count was down so he sent her for another transfusion. So all day Wednesday was spent at the hospital...then on Thursday she decided that she would not have anymore transfusions. She's decided to just let this play out...it's so hard on her and as she says "For what?" When she first got the diagnosis back in October she said all she wanted to do was to be able to see her new great grandson...the kids made that happen, and for that I am forever grateful. She's content and has accomplished what she wanted. She's not in any pain, is in good spirits and still sharp as a tack...what more can I ask for. So, don't think she'll last too much longer, and she knows that, and is good with it all...so I'm OK with it too.
I found a bit of time yesterday and got my January project for Christmas Through the Year done...a flannel pillowcase for Camden.
Thanks so much Darlene and Cheryl for doing this...I sure had fun!
I've sure missed all of my Blogland friends and I want you to know that I appreciate all of your notes, good thoughts, prayers and support more than I'll ever be able to express...Thank you my Friends!
