Touching Base

    It has been a rough few days with Hubby really sick. He has had the coughing crud that has gone down into his chest. They finally started him on antibiotics yesterday. The first round was to order just cough syrup, but then getting them to give it to him was like pulling teeth. They said he wasn't running a temperature which I knew he was because his has always ran on the low side so when it was 98.8 the temperature was going up. I have taken care of him for a long time and I know when something is wrong. I am use to seeing 95's or 94's for his temperature. As I told the doctor, he doesn't have an immune system to fight things off with the white cells, red cells, and platelets all being below normal. I will be going back to the nursing home in a while to check on him.
    My oldest grandson's judging team is going to state. Out of their school only one team didn't make it. I know those kids were probably disappointed, but they had to place so high at district's to go. The kids placed 5th. He has been having practice in the afternoon after school so I have been taking him home. It really isn't that far out of the way, plus it gives grandma her grandma fix. The hands have kept busy with embroidering to give me something else to think about. 
   My oldest made it back to Louisiana o.k. and back to work. His sister told him to save his money and get his vacation set to come home for Christmas. He can fly home and they would pick him up. The week he was home flew entirely to fast, but I got to see him several times and got taken care of what we needed to do. 
   The sun is shining and we are suppose to get up to 70's and warmer yet tomorrow. I want a nice day because they are suppose to have a day of fun riding the scout go-mobile down the hill. They have a place they close the street down and let them go. I didn't get to go last year, but I will this year. 
   I want to try to get back to somewhat normal in my life what ever that may be. I will be visiting as time permits. It is time like these that I wish I had a lap top, but I don't. You all have a good day. Hugs and Prayers to all of those who need it. Take care

Hope your husband feels better soon - and I hope in your other activities you'll find a way to refresh your own mind despite the worry that can wear anyone down. Take care, and I'll be thinking of you.

Hugs and prayers to you sweet Shirley. I do hope by the time you get this note that your hubby is over his terrible cough and isn't running fever.
We all need those little grandma fixes don't we. Glad your getting yours and I know your proud of your grandson going to state. I hope they win.
I finally did a post tonight and shared photo's of my grandma fix.
Thinking of you and always keeping you in my prayers.
