Quick Updates

Frist - Mom is out of surgery and doing well. While she is still in some pain, she was sitting up today and asking for Starbucks! So that has to be a good sign. The Drs. say she can come home tomorrow -which seems offly soon to me - but she's just going to have to learn to let others do for her! I took the kids to see her at the hospital this morning and on the way, Molly asked me "Mom, did Grammie have a baby?!" which cracked me up. She thinks if you go to the hospital - it must be to have a baby! So we had a very simple, but truthful talk about all that Grammie has and is going to go thru. Megan thought it was hysterical that there is medicine that can make your hair fall out. She said "Grammie can wear my Dee Dee Doodle wig!" THAT I would love to see!



Second - Closing arguments should begin on Monday in Candace's trial. I pray for a swift and just verdict to happen once deliberation begins. I am not prepared to face a day that doesn't bring what we all have been waiting for for the past 21 months. Candace's son turned 3 last week. I realized he has been alive longer without her than he was alive with her, and that made me cry.


Finally - Get yourself over to Tonya's Blog!! A sneak peak of some of the pictures she took of us on Thursday are up - and they are fabulous! I especially love the one of just my Mom. My sister is so amazingly beautiful, it blows me away. The one of her and Paul is just gorgeous! And of course, I may be a little biased - but those have to be 3 of the best looking kids ever!! Anyway - go see!! Be sure to leave a comment and let Tonya know what an awesome gift she has. What she wrote about our family in her post was very sweet, telling, and true as well. Thank you Tonya for your friendship. I was so happy to get to meet you!

Please give ALL of our love and hugs to your Mom! We're thinking about her lots. And MAKE her take it easy when she gets home... you know just how hard that is for us moms to do. The pics are gorgeous. I love the one of the three kids together!

Your Mom is beautiful and i am praying for continued recovery and strength for the days ahead.

I will also be praying that the Lord's will be done in Candace's trial and that you, along with all of her friends and family will have closure.

How much longer till Matt gets home??
