What a week . . .

WOW it has been one looooong week. Last week poor little RJ had to have emergency hernia surgery. He's healing up pretty well, but now him and all of us have the flu.

My little brother Nick and his wife Megan and baby boy Seamus all got to come visit as well. So nice to finally meet Mister Seamus. Such a sweet baby. Can't wait to see them again!

Vince's grandparents and parents came to visit on Thursday and stayed till Sunday. We had a nice time visiting with them. Great Grandma and Great Grandpa said they want to come back and stay for much longer. So we really look forward to that. We have really missed them. They said they liked it here. And grandma said it was the first time her phantom leg hasn't hurt in years. So that was nice for her too!

Friday I went to Joann's black Friday sale and got enough flannel for a bunch of things. I should of bought some from diapers too but just didn't. Grrr. Then I went to Healthy Baby and bought Belle and RJ another set of longies. And ended up also buying a used set from Sweet Cheeks, and placing a order for the Osocozy better fits, as I've really been liking those. Sadly later that morning though my mom had a stroke. She had another one today. I've been taking care of her little kids, and dog. Sure hoping she can recover from this. She's been in the hospital ever since. I'm hoping though they will put her in a nursing home so she can get better care then she was at home. I just don't have the physical strength to give her that kind of care, or the time since I have such little kids.

Saturday we took all the kids to Mc Donald's for breakfast and got to eat with the service group who had been working the rurals. Very sweet group. One of the brothers was the husband of the sister that used to come on most of my studies with my teacher Jerri. So it was nice to get to spend some time with them.

I'm sorry to hear about all the health problems in your family. As for us, we've been sick on & off since the end of August/first of September. I can't wait for things to get "back to normal." I hope your Mom will start doing better soon.
