Update

Well let's see.....My grandmother came home from the hospital to my mom's for a bit. She had another heart attack and had to have 2 stints put in and now has to have oxygen 24/7. Mom is feeling a little better, still weak from being so sick and taking care of my grandmother. My sister, Chantal had an appointment yesterday with her heart doctor and has to wear one of those 24hr monitors and they changed her raised her medication. My BP is soaring again, but I know it is mostly due to stress. Right now I am having to do one of those 24 hr urine things. :( Just checking my kidneys again because of the BP. So other than all that not a lot going on here! :)

Andrew leaves for Europe Friday morning!!! I am very excited and proud that he gets this oppournity but as a mother I am scared to death about him traveling so far away. He is sooooooo excited about this trip so expect tons of photos when he gets back. Seems like we have been packing for a month! He has never been on a plane before so he is a little nervous about that.

Hopefully, I will be back in a few days...

I've been wondering where you got off to! I hope that you all start feeling better really soon!! And try not to worry so much! I hope that you can get your BP to drop a little! Maybe after Andrew gets home....

I hope you have a good week!!

I hope you all get to feeling better MUCH soon. Does this mean your mom is missing work? Andrew will have the time of his life. Try not to worry. Talk to God, and He will keep you calm.
be blessed, Michelle

With all that is going on I can imagine your blood pressure could be crazy.

Andrew will have fun...scared and nervous at times - but he will be fine...as long as they all stick together and not venture off alone.

May God grant you the peace and strength you need during this time with son being gone and the health of you and your family.

Kristie, you and your family sure do go through some hard times, and everything bad seems to happen in groups! I'm glad people are feeling better, and I hope you feel better soon, too, not just physically, but I hope your quilting mojo comes back, too!
