Grandmama Jane Unplugged
Since Wed. of last week, I have been without my Internet. Not only have I been without Internet, I was away from my computer due to taking care of my daughter and Grandson James.
Oh my word, God gives us children while we're young for a reason. Taking care of a daughter who can not lift ANYTHING for 2 weeks PLUS my Grandson with Cerebral Palsy who comes with enough equipment to outfit a third world country!!! James can not stand independently, so a task as simple as pulling down his pants is very difficult....for the person pulling down his pants!
My daughter injured her umbilical hernia from all the heavy lifting and had to have emergency surgery to repair the hernia before it ruptured. I barely had time to brush my teeth much less, keep up my blogging.
So....................needless to say, I haven't written in my blog nor have I read any of your blogs! I even lost THREE followers!! I don't know HOW but my numbers have dropped by 3 over the past TWO weeks. Boo Hoo!!!
I did however enjoy my individual time with James. He giggled down to his toes when I crawled in bed with him to read a book. I was the Queen of Show Business when he and I worked up an "ACT" worthy of Las Vegas complete with drums and kazoo. I would hear, "Grandmommie!!, I want to do our show!". We entertained his Mommy and I'm sure it was the medicine that made her recuperate so quickly!
The two of them
are at Physical Therapy Boot Camp at UAB in Birmingham for the next 3 weeks AND living in a fabulous Ronald McDonald House. I am praying for Good Samaritans to help #1 Daughter to transport James + equipment back and forth on their daily 3 Block trek to PT camp.
This particular camp is especially designed for children who have had the Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR)surgery. James had SDR last June and has participated in 1 other 3 week camp which proved to be instrumental in his amazing progress. Last Aug. James took his 1st step in a walker at the end of camp. This April, James is walking long distances with his walker but needs to build up strength and improve the quality of his walking.
We are praying for and expecting major goals to be reached at the end of this 3 week boot camp. I ask all my blogging & quilting friends to place James and my daughter in your prayers for the next 3 weeks.
