Internet down

I am posting from another computer to let you know that our internet is down!! I called AT&T this morning and went through all of that hassel (as I am sure you are very familiar with). I had tried several steps on my own that I have learned over the years but nothing worked. I got a nice girl and she tried but told me that I was out of sync!! Okay..OUT OF SYNC!! I told her that I was having a pretty good day so far and thought I was pretty much in Sync!! But she just laughed and said that they will be sending out a technician to help me out!! Tomorrow morning..sometime...this person is supposed to be coming to our humble abode and hopefully finding out why i am so out of sync!!

Things are doing pretty well lately!! Mother is in pain today with her legs which is not good. She has been receiving new injections. She received her first one this past Monday and seemed to help for about 5 days. She has 2 more to go!! Plus we have talked her into going to see a vascular surgeon!! She has something odd going on with the bottom part of her left leg and foot and it looks like the right leg and foot may be starting. You see my grandmother (her mother) lost her left leg below the knee from poor circulation. The doctor told Mother and I at that time to be careful and watch ourselves. We are just hoping this not what is going on with Mother. My grandmother passed away at 72 with half of her left leg being amputated. Her dad (My great grandfather) also had his leg removed. No one is sure WHY but it could be for the same reason. We will see what this surgeon tells us.

It is HOT HOT HOT here in Savannah. Kind of early this year but I guess it gets HOT when it wants to..Ya reckon? We are so thankful to have a cool home with a wonderful air conditioner that works great!! How thankful can we be???

I weighed at Curves this week and lost 2.5 lbs and 1.5 inches. I know that is not much but it is a loss and that is what I am after. I am never going to be a cute little slim lady but I am going to keep moving until I can no longer move!!

I don't know if I told you but my sis in law, Judy, found out that she does not have to have radiation or chemo and only has to take that cancer pill for 5 years!! We were so happy about that. My mother cried because she was so relieved.

Today is my grandkids here in Savannah's last day in school. Their parents both had work off today so that they could spend the day together before the whirl wind of kids attacks their house!! Boy do I remember that. Both kids had great grades. Garrett made honor roll and Maddie made high honor roll. Smarties I think!

Take care and I will try to get around to seeing you..I am so so behind!!

Hi Sandy,

Just wanted to stop by and say 'hi' since it's been so long since I've visited. It's terribly hot here, too, for this time of year. I hope you get your internet up and running soon as I'm sure you miss it.

I hope your Mom will see about those legs and feet. That's pretty scary to think there is a history in the family of losing a leg.

Congratulations on your weight loss. Any weight loss is a good one.

Have a good weekend.

Sandy... you sound up... from what you were a few months ago! I'm hoping to get there soon. I will have surgery on my shoulder (and elbow) next Wed... so a prayer would be appreciated.

I think of you and your family and pray that all goes well.

Love your header photo.

I love your new blog look sweetie. I will be praying for your mom. Praising God over the news about Judy.

Here we are getting rain and cool temps. I love your new look. I think about it but then do nothing.

Love and Hugs,

I know how you feel. I can't count all the hours I have spent trying to fix something on a computer. Hopefully you will get yours fixed soon.
Love the beach picture below. How I would love to be there right now. I have always loved the ocean and the beach.

Hey babe, Hope your computer gets back in sync. Tell your mom I've got her all prayed up. You go girlfriend! I'm really proud of your weight loss and inches too! Doing a happy dance for you in Virginia. My Canadians leave tomorrow very early. We will be leaving the house around 4 a.m. to get to the DC airport. Our nest will certainly be too quiet for a while. Miss you.
