Kassadie update

Kassadie is still in ICU. Today is day 7. Her spirits have been good, but she is slowly getting restless. We are hoping her IV will be removed today, so tomorrow she can go upstairs to start rehab therapy. We know that will help her so much to get moving. Her balance is getting better,
she can sit for longer periods of time. She is mad her right arm doesn't work and she says her left one doesn't color good. The kids miss her very much and can't wait for her to come home.This has been very hard for our family. I know you all understand why we can't call everyone, so I'll do my best to post updates on her here.

Kassadie went in Tuesday for a cardiac catheterization.
Things did not go to well. She had a blood clot that traveled to her brain.
They are now trying to stabilize her IV medication to something she can take
orally,so then in a couple days they can move her upstairs to rehab.
She cannot move her right arm or leg.
She will be there 2-4 weeks.
I will be posting updates.

Hey, it's my 100th Post!

A couple of weeks ago Kassadie and I were talking
about blankets and she asked for me to make her
a new afghan.
So I asked, "What colors would you like?"
She said"Purples".
I finished it last night and this is the end result, it's 36"x48".
Remember she's a little girl.
She loves it.... And that makes me very happy.
(And I've actually had 100 things to say????)

Mother's Day

Oh, isn't it pretty?
I got a beautiful early Mother's Day present.
I had visions of a patio and large area for grass the day
we bought this house. After 10 years, yesterday my
dream of a beautiful lawn came true.
Mike worked very hard and I'm very thankful for that.
They installed lighting and a automated
sprinkler system before the grass was delivered.
And yes, it's a lot of sod.......4,500 s.f. to be exact.
That's why it's taken 10 years. :)
