Updates galore!

My dear friends, thank you so much for all the cards, letters, gifts and emails.  I went into the hospital on 9/11/10 and once they got in there it turned out to be much worse than the MRI's suggested.  It turned out to be a major surgery. (fusions, rods, discs, etc) The doc says a 12 month recovery time. physically  and emotionally it has been too much and I could not even blog or read blogs.  I have missed you so.  I have been a traveling.  LOL First, St. Francis Hospital, then Hughston Hospital, them Emory.  6 surgeries later I am now home.  Slow but home.  Hey the good side, I have lost 35 pounds so the heck with all that exercise stuff they talk about. I have been bedridden.  LOL  The doctor says 12 months of recovery time. It has been 3 months and I start physical therapy the first of the year.  Sorry no pictures, just love and good thoughts to those who have not forgotten me.  Oh my stars I have so many funny stories.  From aggravating my nurses to Hamlet wanting her birthday cornbread. They are all a hoot.  I have tables capes, baby showers all to post and hope to do so soon
I got the most beautiful hug from Dee Dee and once I fell asleep with it on, hum, don't think that nurse will EVER try to take my hug from me.
However you spend you holiday, whatever your faith.....great blessings from Doug, myself and the babies.

Happy Festivious my friends.
Love Jeanette

I am insane and now I have proof!

Welcome friends.  I found out today that I am really insane.  As you know DH is home but really busy visiting everyone but me.  I am pretty much bed bound and miserable.  I went totally nuts today. I loaded the dogs in the truck and decided 'road trip'  Now my excuse is all the drug residue in my body.  I am having a fit to have good photos done of the dogs and can't find anyone to do them.

So we are driving around and I think PASSPORT PHOTOS!  LOL  I take 13 pound Trina in the store (drug store) and tell them she is a famous dog actor that works with a petting zoo that is going to Mexico and she  needs passport pictures.  The person taking the pictures keeps saying I never heard of that.  hmmm. Finally she says I better call my manager.  I thought, I better get out of here!  They would not let me leave so I am waiting to give my apology.  Mind you there were NO other customers in there at all.
The clerk came back and said the manager sad to treat her like a baby and hold her up over your head.  Well Trina is 13 pounds ad we finally got the above results.
Was I happy with that?  NOOOOOO.  I go get 65 pound Josh and tell them I just had back surgery and can't lift her.  They were so kind trying to lift Josh with her 10 foot legs flopping over their heads.  It took 3 of them.  I about peed my pants.  No picture of Josh, but not for lack of trying.

I will call them tomorrow, apologize, send flowers or candy. or a cake.  I am still laughing.  Was I awful?  Darn it was funny.  Am I officially crazy?

So much fun, so little time

Welcome friends, wow it has been busy around here.  With DH arriving home, our precious younger niece coming for a visit (12 years old) my mom, sister, and brother came by for a quick visit also. My precious niece cooked, decorated , and in general prepared our entire meal for Saturday evening.  Let me tell you, it might have been heavy on the dessert end but it was wonderful!  She used 2 cookbooks and  the back of
a can of cocoa.  My advice is to watch this blog, an incredible 1st anniversary giveaway coming up.x
Thank you for stopping in and be on the lookout for the goodies to come.
Thank you so much for stopping in and sharing the happiness our family is experience  this few weeks.
I treasure each every comment you leave.
