Snow/Ice/Rain

Seriously, Oklahoma. Get it together! Y’all we had snow last week, some of the state of an ice storm this week & today is raining! I need to it be like 72 degrees outside! I hate being cold. And just so happens my birthday is smack dab in the middle of winter! In two weeks, I’ll be 29. Woot!🤔

Anywho, update on my grandma. Surgery went well & she is doing as expected! She is still in ICU which is where I’d prefer her to be because she gets more care there than she would on another floor! ICU nurses are assigned 2 patients a shift & they have to report on those patients every hour! Even though she is annoyed with being bothered, it’s good for her. She’s 72, and was cut from her breast bone to belly button. I mean, come on, that’s serious. Her blood sugars go up & down, which needs to be under control before she can go home. So we will see. She will be out of commission for 4-6 weeks. So she still have a long recovery road. So please continue to pray for her!

My husband has been the only one in this house that hasn’t caught the cold. So I have yet to be back to the hospital since the day she had her surgery. But of course, we have facetimed her a million times. Not only is she my best friend & my go to person, she is that to my children. They LOVE her so much. My son has been asking to go to grandma & grandpas, and is so sad when I tell him we can’t go. But that will only be for a few more weeks! I just so miss talking to her everyday or going to her house. But I am thanking the good Lord, that I will be able to continue to do those things with her. He had watched over her, and continues too.❤

I’m going to go enjoy this lazy rainy day with my family. I hope you all had a great weekend! Until the next time!👋🏼

So where do I begin. As you may have seen in my Cancer sucks post, my grandmother has stomach cancer. She will live with it the rest of her life, unless it’s is now small enough to remove by surgery. She takes chemo shots every month, and as you can imagine, those are extremely expensive. Well, we have just found out that my mom, had a lump on her chest. She went to the doctor this week to have a biopsy, and should hear sometime next week what the results are. If cancerous, she will have to see a dermatologist & then go from there. Cancer has affected our family before, unfortunately. The first would be our adopted family, The Grays. My grandmother kept both of their kids from newborn until it was time to start school. So they are basically family. We love them as family. Both parents are full time school teachers & a big part of the town I grew up in. Mrs. Gray was diagnosed with breast cancer, and did amazing. She is now a survivor! It’s been atleast 4 years, I believe. Praise the good Lord! Then my grandmother, and now a chance of my mother. We are staying positive about it because we know it’s possible it’s not cancerous. But that doesn’t mean the chances of it being aren’t super real. We’ve learned to be positive. And we will continue to be regardless of what’s thrown our way. The Lord has this. We just need to trust him. He has proven miracles happen. With Mrs. Gray, beating cancer. My grandma was told her tumor would probably never shrink, but it has, tremendously. So we will pray & wait. Then move on in the way we need to come whatever. If you believe in the power of prayer, please say a prayer for us. If you don’t, positive vibes are appreciated!! 😘

That was heavy. So now on to a not so heavy subject, y’all I did my makeup this morning. My hair, well, it’s still in a ponytail. But I seriously need it cut! I got up early, determined to do my makeup atleast before my children woke up. I accomplished that, pretty much. Half way through my 3 year old woke up. That’s okay cause he pretty much entertains himself. He just wanted to use the potty & have some milk!🍳🍞🍶

Hoping you are having a great day! Until next time!
