Have you ever felt helpless and can't really do anything about it except keep saying prayers that everything will be all right.
We live in the middle of the United States, but the hurricane is causing me to worry. I feel for my friends and their families that are being affected, but we are, also, our son works in New Orleans area. His e-mail said yes mom, I am watching out for Ike, Emergency kit is ready and he is ready to go if that is what he has to do. I am praying that all they get is some rain, but who knows what is going to happen. It reminds me of when he was in the first gulf war. You didn't know where or what was really going on. You just watch television and try to learn as much as possible.
We had rain yesterday evening and again this morning. It was a nice and gentle rain, but I don't think we really got that much. Although if you were out, you definitely got wet. The horse show was cancelled and rescheduled for this next month. Little brother will belong to the 4-H Club then and they think maybe he will get to ride. I hope mom can find a small enough white shirt. They have a mandatory dress code of white shirts, western jeans, cowboy hat or helmet with no exceptions.
We hadn't made the drive yet to go watch so we just came home after breakfast. Hubby took a long nap and I worked on my lap quilt that I need to get done. I put in a wrong color and had to cut it out so I decided it was time to take a break.
I just wish Tuesday was over with. We have to be at the hospital at about 9 for liver tests. I don't know exactly what that is going to entail. I just know they are trying to pin point what is causing the problem we are having now. His blood sugars have been all over the board, blood counts out of whack. I just want to know more so I know how to deal with it. Every day is a learning experience.
Enough chit chat.
I hope you all have a wonderful week. Take care and I am off to see what you all are doing.
