In like a lion…


“In like a lion, out like a lamb.”

March certainly blew in today.  It was a beautiful but windy day, here in Arkansas.

My dad is now out of ICU and into a regular room.  He is slowly recovering, but in my mind, every little step forward is much more than not.  

This morning, before I arrived at the hospital, he called my mother’s name.  “Linda, help”, is what mom told me he said.  He also tried to get up, but was too weak to do so.  He has been responding well to the nurses and doctors, when he is awake.   

Mom and I have noticed a pattern… When he is awake for most of the day, he will then sleep most of the next day.   He has however been awake for a few hours, even on his “sleeping” days. 

The nurses/doctors are going to try sitting him up and possibly testing him tomorrow on an ice chip to see if he can swallow without any trouble.  If so, they will then try him on food and drink.   He still has he traceotamy and still receiving the least percentage of oxygen.   I expect them to take him off the oxygen soon.  

Tomorrow will be my last day staying with mom and dad at the hospital.   I will be resting over the weekend, as I need to go back to work next week.   It will be hard for me, as I want to be there to make sure everything is going okay,  but I have handed it over to God and will trust Him to do His will. 

Thank you all for the well wishes and prayers!

I hope all is well with you all.  I have gotten behind on reading your blogs and will try to catch up over next few weeks.   I need to get back with my weekly recipe and block of the month.  Hopefully I will be able to start back on them next week.   

I finished a scarf today.    I’m having to charge my camera battery up, but will post pics of my crochet accomplishments over the last three weeks.

Falling asleep, as I type…. Until next time have a great day!

God bless and keep you,

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
