Hi Everyone!! Thanks for the concerns...Guess this is going to be a long ordeal. I'll try not to be too lengthy...Heehee...me???? Any way. 1st surgery went ok.except that after 20 years the shunt line has calcified both at the end of the tube in the tummy area and at the main shunt in the head. They have an external line right now while they run labs which wont be conclusive til thursday afternoon. 2nd surgery will be determined later if there is no infection. A general surgeon will then assist the Neuro surgeon. General will try to remove calcified tube and scar tissue from belly then Neuro will replace the shunt line. A couple days for recouping and then send home on antibiotics. Maybe Sunday or Monday. All in all he's doing fine but bored. They said we can get him into his wheelchair and wheel him around the icu today so we'll see how that goes.
Again thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. Appreciate all of you more than you know. Im sure if Nick could talk he'd say thank you too.

Oh Susan, that sounds like quite a lot to deal with... yet Nick seems to be handling it quite well. I hope his "stroll" around ICU gave him a change of scenery that alleviated the boredom for a bit. I'm continuing to pray for him... and you!

Lynn, well said!

Susan - continued prayers for your sweet son, Nick. He sounds like he is in good hands - both with our Savior watching over and lots of prayerful friends!

We were off to the zoo today and the minute we were leaving, a passing shower turned into torrential rain! Oh my - did it ever open up. It's passing a little bit, but I'm staying home just in case!

{{{{{ Hugs for all the wonderful friends }}}}}

Kelly, I'm sorry the rains put a halt to the zoo outing!

It's getting ready to storm here now... I hear the thunder in the distance, but it's drawing closer.

Hi all Today has been totally strange! We made a mad dash for home after our planned multi family picnic got rained out by torrential rain! But at least we had a little while there before it opened up. My neighbors are having a party of some sort and the Cubana music is blaring! And ... there is not a single person out there - ROFL! Guess it's for the palm trees! And dh is working on his car which literally shut off when he coasted into the drive way - just like that. PTL he was home .. and not out in the streets (though we have AAA and other back up!)

I'm going to work on some more cards today after getting more and more supplies that just keep running out

Hoping to hear some news soon from Sue that Nick is doing well ♥

Hugs!

Hi everyone! Happy Monday to you, Jeanette!

I got my Starbucks so I'm good to go - LOL. Had a laugh at the new middle school as the summer staff was quite clueless. Now we are on the hunt for uniforms for next year as they are required.

Waving to everyone ♥

I think you're right, Lynn!

FYI - we are heading out-of-state this morning... going to go help my dad celebrate his 86th birthday, which is tomorrow. I won't have my computer (nor internet) while I'm gone, so you won't see me here in the threads for a few days. We'll be home the end of the week. Then I'll leave again on the weekend for meetings out-of-town.

Do you see a pattern here? Come and go; go and come.

HELLO!!! I am happy to report that Nicks surgery went great on Monday and they allowed him to go home tuesday night! We were so surprised but I guess the neurosurgeon thought he looked great and could continue his recoup at home. Let me tell ya he was one happy guy when we wheeled him into the house! LOL For someone to have 3 incision sites he is being great at leaving them alone so hopefully they will heal nicely. I want to thank each and every one of you for all the well wishes and prayers sent our way. They sure did help during this long ordeal. Thank you so much...you guys are the greatest!

Default Hi!

Susan- good to hear Nick got to come home! Wahoo! I will continue to say prayers for him! Hope you get some time to get inky too! I like you idea for making cards for the Nursing home. SO, with my retirement, may go to the senior day care and see if they would like me to create something easy to put together for the folks every month or every other month.....

Yeah for Friday! It is my very last day of work- will be sad to walk out of the unit......

Katie will be heading home tomorrow from her month in Europe, she will head to NY for a wedding, then when she comes back, will be moving to a new apt in Chicago with a friend of a friend.

We went to a baseball game last night- it was fun and had an exciting ending with a grand slam home run. We have a North side (Cubs) vs South side (White Sox) rivalry- so it was fun to see families where one was dressed in Cubs and the other Sox. the 4th game is tonight.... Sox are up 2-1 so far. The rest of my family are Sox fans somehow, so we banter back & forth - all in fun.... at least I think they do it to be funny....

Have you ever heard of Rent the Runway? You rent dresses and then mail them back- instead of buying them..... Katie got a dress mailed here for the wedding she will be attending. I am going to look/see and maybe will do that for Chris' wedding....... I am not sure what to do- it may be 60 there, it may be 30 and snowing (wouldn't that be beautiful.....)

Waving hello to all!

Shelly

Susan, I am so glad to hear Nick got to come home and is doing so well at leaving the incisions alone. Continued prayers for healing!

Shelly, what a great concept that Rent the Runway business has. I imagine it could save someone a lot of money for a dress they would only wear once anyway.

Lynn, it's good to see you!

We had a good/safe trip. Did get caught in an hour long sit and wait on the interstate in St. Louis (Illinois side). Yikes! There was a semi pulling a load of hay - caught fire. Huge black flames. We were close enough to watch the firefighters do their work.... as we waited for them to open the highway back up again. Thankfully, it sounds like the driver got out safely.

Here are some photos/information about the fire...

Hay truck fire shuts down eastbound I-64 in Fairview Heights | FOX2now.com

Today I'll be busy catching up here at home. I also hope to find some time to get inky. We got home about 10:00 last night, but I did manage to get the suitcases unpacked... so at least that is taken care of.

I hope you all have a fun-filled weekend, for sure! My weekend is going to be short. I leave tomorrow right after lunch. I have a meeting early Monday morning - 3 1/2 hours away from home. The good news is, I'll be able to have Starbucks and Chipotle while I'm gone those two days........... and might even make it to Michael's and/or Hobby Lobby, depending on how long the meeting lasts.

Obviously I won't be on SCS on Monday, so unless I slip back in here later today, I'll see you Tuesday!

Sue, I am overjoyed to hear of your son Nick's recovery and success with all he is experiencing! (that's my daughter's boyfriend's name, btw) ♥ He's blessed with a good support system and wonderful mommy!

I'm far behind in blogging, I apologize! I can't wait to see what you all created but I've been creating cards like crazy! There is a new release (if you peek at my siggy, hee hee) and worth looking at I'll get to the blogs this week for sure!

We leave for Disney in just 10 days - I'm looking foward to the last hurrah of summer

It. will. be. crazy. hot!! Schools start here August 22nd Bah Humbug! My son is NOT looking forward to starting middle school. Maybe he has seen too many movies

*waving to everyone!*

Default Hi!

Dropping in to say hello. I am slow to get to bogs this week, decided to do the DTGD challenges...... I was not going to play today too much going on, but got cardmaking after errands and could not stop..... II am using so many supplies/stamps that I have not touched, and have so many more. Feels wonderful. Back...not so much.... off to stretch then to bed.

Kelly, I'm loving your siggy!!! And how fun to have a Disney trip in your near future! I'm sorry the little man isn't looking forward to Middle School, though I can't say I blame him. (I guess I've seen my share of movies, too.) Truthfully, though..... when I was subbing (prior VT Shooting - so long ago now) my favorite age group to sub in was Middle School!

Shelly, sorry your back is hurting so badly. I hope the rest helped............ and you had sweet dreams of all the fun cardmaking.

I had a good trip/meeting... and DID enjoy Starbucks and Chipotle along with some retail therapy while I was gone.

DH leaves this morning for 3 days. Today I intend to get inky, tomorrow I will clean house, and Thursday I will do laundry. Our DS and his GF will be here Thursday!!!

Hello Everyone!! Finally got around to all the blogs last night and I am so jealous that you all have been so busy and creative! I'm just now finding a little time to pack up some card stuff and we are heading back to the cabin. Boy we sure do need rest and relaxation!! Nick is doing great! Everything is healing nicely, probably due to all the well wishs from all of you! Believe me it has been greatly appreciated. I'll check in when I can!

Good Morning Chickies!




FYI - I am going to be super busy today, getting ready for DS and his GF to arrive this evening. They will be here until Sunday afternoon, and DH, Brock and I leave early Monday morning for out-of-town meetings. So you won't be seeing me here again until mid-week next week.

Hi friends! I hope everyone is having a sweet day!

We are rushing around getting back to school ready - oh it breaks my heart. I can't believe summer is nearly over! I love love LOVE having my babies home! We are uniform schools and my son SHOT UP - he has outgrown every single thing he owns right down to socks and undies (and I just bought it all less than 3 months ago! LOL!)

We are gearing up for our trip and heading out Monday, so much to do.
We're having a big dinner party on Sunday with the kids, the 2 boyfriends, my BIL and his gf that are in town so it will be a full house ♥

Crafting? I'm so jealous! I crammed in so many cards from 2-3 weeks ago that this week, I've taken a few days off

Sending hugs to all that are healing, traveling, and resting up!

Default Hi!

Dropping in to say hello : ) I have been making cards and having a blast this past week. Mom came back from Mass on Thursday night, so that will slow down. I have 11 to make and upload by Monday night (yeah, right.....) to finish the challenge- going to try : )

Mom got a puzzle that is black and white and you color it once it is done- and guess what- it is missing a piece.... If you write in for a new puzzle, you get an entire puzzle, not just one piece. Luckily, it is a corner edge piece so it will be east to find. We did that all day yesterday, then went out to eat with three other couples- it was really hot out yesterday, but was really beautiful last night.

I missed the opening ceremony for the Olympics, but watching a bit tonight- swimming, gymnastics and beach volleyball.

Sue- glad to hear Nick is on the mend- enjoy the summer place- what a fab get away!

Kelly- Awww, you are right, summer really buzzed by! I do not miss dropping that load of cash- my younger sis has 5 kids- 2 HS and 3 college- the cost of books alone......

Jeanette- safe travels!

Katie is moving her stuff to her Chicago apt tomorrow- aims to be there by noon, we'll see. I cannot lift, so not much of a help.....

Have a great weekend!

Shelly

I was able to make 42 cards for the DTGD challenge last week- seriously- crazy! If this is retirement, I am loving it : )

My Dad's sister- last living sibling- is in hospice and so I expect to be heading to Omaha for a funeral soon. I am taking my Mom to Kankakee tomorrow night and she has a medication infusion for her Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Hope everyone is having a great week

Shelly

Wow, Shelly, that is a A LOT of cards!!!! I'm sure they are all sensational! It sounds like you are enjoying your time with mom ♥

We are heading out before 5 am to be on the road tomorrow - dh wants to maximize the travel time before rush hour and 'get settled' into vacation. He has a 4 day work conference and we are tagging along at the invite from his boss Although we plan to be at Disney one day, the rest of the time will be at the resort or taking the planned day trips to do some 'Florida explorin'!

Wishing everyone a wonderful week ahead - and I'll see you when we return late Sunday (or Monday!) as we enjoy our last summer "hurrah!" ♥

Hugs!

Good Morning Fellow Chickies!





WOW! 42 cards... impressive, Shelly! I'm glad your mom had a good trip, but sorry to hear of your aunt's health. (((HUGS)))

Kelly, have fun on your trip!

Waving to everyone else!

Well, ladies....... our trip was good. Now I'm home for just over a week. I do have 3 meetings during that time, but they are all here local, so that's good. I also need to make about 25 cards before we leave on vacation. I have 9 days. EEK!

Today is off to a good start... one load of linens washed, dried, and put away. Supper's in the Crockpot (I know, I don't usually cook on Wednesdays, but decided to make an exception this week since we've been gone two days.... and DH will leave tomorrow for two days.)

He will get home just in time Friday for us to travel up the road about 30 minutes to see ELVIS!!! I'm super excited about that. In fact, if he gets delayed, Brock and I will probably go without him.

Today I have work to do here at the house, tend to a couple of "business" calls... and work on some cards, too. What's everybody else up to?

Congratulations, Shelly, on completing all of the DTGD Challenges! That is a huge time commitment for one week! I was sad not to have the time this year.

Kelly, I envy your summer-ending family fling! Sounds like you all will be having a blast! What a great way to relax a little before hitting the ground running in the new school year.


Jeanette, you have to be the most organized person on the planet! Do you keep a bag packed and ready to go at all times? I am so impressed that you have a new card up and blogged almost every day!!


Susan, hugs and good wishes coming your way as Nick continues to heal.


I have been busy this week getting a friend with a new knee to doctors' appointments and helping her get out to shop for groceries and meds. I will be helping with a United Way event at the Boys and Girls Club on Friday and have a church women's gathering out of town on Saturday. That means I had to set an alarm and get up early 4 days this week. During my retirement, I have gotten pretty used to sleeping in! LOL! I guess I should get to bed earlier, but with the Olympics on until midnight, I doubt it is going to happen.


I hope everyone is staying cooler than we are here. Most days we get close to 100 degrees! Have a wonderful weekend!

Good Morning Chickies!




Lynn, actually, yes, I do keep a bag packed... it has toiletries, meds/vitamins, and all the other gizmos (chargers for instance) that I need for a trip in it. All I have to do is throw in some clothes and I'm good to go. I started that back in 1999 when I became the state president and a recording secretary for our state convention followed two years later... I was gone a lot. For instance, one year I was gone over-night away from my family 60 times. The packed bag sure makes my life easier!

1999 is also the year I gave up television. (Though I am now saving my pennies for a small TV to put in my Working Studio so I may go back to watching a bit of it. Seems kind of silly after 17 years without, so I may change my mind, but the penny bank is slowly filling up just in case.)

We have a picnic at lunchtime - our association is having it - and then DH leaves for his out-of-town trip. He'll be home tomorrow evening. I plan to make cards this afternoon and evening. YAY!

Default Hi!

It has been a HOT and HUMID week here. Temps in the 90's and very humid. It rained yesterday which cools off the air.

Just got word that my Aunt passed away last night. Funeral Monday in Omaha, wake Sunday evening. Flights are very expensive..... It is 7 hours or so to drive.


Mom is delightful, but it is amazing how little she remembers. And, other times, she remembers things that amaze me! I enjoy having her around- we are very alike in interests (artsy and all, and religious). We are working on a 1000 piece puzzle and she is coloring pages in a coloring book.


Have a great weekend everyone! Lynn and Kelly- stay cool! Janette- enjoy being home even if just for a moment : )
