Thank You

Thanks for the prayers for Jim everything went well yesterday but they did find that Jim has severe aortic stenosis. He is not a candidate for open heart surgery but there is a new procedure called TAVR which allows a new valve be inserted within the diseased valve while your heart is still beating. We will meet with a team of Drs. tomorrow morning to discuss Jim having this procedure. Please continue to pray!

Prayer Request

Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. Jim goes in the hospital for a heart cath. so the cardiologist can get a better look at his blocked aorta valve and see if there are anymore blockages. He is very apprehensive about it, he has never been sick or had a prescription until a few years ago. It is really hard seeing him like this, he has always been my rock and the one taking care of everything.Please pray that everything will go well.

A Wonderful Valentine Evening

We had dinner last night at one of my favorite places and its only 5 miles from my home. We had a reservation for 7:30 but did not get seated until 8:30 but that was fine with me, we sat in the lobby in front of the fireplace, drinking coffee and met people from far away places visiting the wonderful lodge. When we did get seated the food was wonderful, we had a sweetheart steak for 2 with b. potato and vegetables and the best red velvet cake,I have ever had! It was a great Valentine's Day !

Happy Valentine's Day

It was a Happy Valentine's Day this morning at my house as we celebrated before taking the kiddos to school! Last night Jim gave me these beautiful Tulips and a box of candy. Neighbors also brought us over a big box of chocolate! Tonight we will go to dinner at one of my favorite places" Wakulla Spring Lodge"

I do not know if it had anything to do with Valentine's day or not , but yesterday I found myself missing
my Mother very much , she has been in heaven 25 years now and I do not have days like that much anymore. The first 5 years were terrible, every time I saw someone who resembled her I would burst into tears, but the last 20 years my life has been very full and busy and I have just had happy memories of her but for some reason yesterday I was very sad that she is not here with me anymore.

Slowly but Surely !

Well 2 days before Valentine's Day and I am just now getting out some Valentine decorations and putting up the last of the winter decor. I was a little sad to take down my "friendly Village" plates, they are the only snow I got to see this year! The red plates look so nice though so I am happy!

Jim saw a Cardiologist yesterday and he thinks a lot of his breathing problem is a Heart valve instead of COPD so in a couple of weeks he will have a heart Cath. to see for sure. I have mixed feeling, it will be wonderful if it is a heart valve problem and can be fixed, where as COPD cannot, but the thought of him having heart surgery is very scary so keep us in your prayers!

Making Strawberry Jam

It is a cold rainy day at my house today, high only in the 50's. A good day to curl up with a good book or movie, but I am making homemade strawberry preserves today. The srawberries are not as sweet as they will be next month but they are good! I am planning on doing small batches at the time so I am starting now. They are my husband and granddaughters favorite and taste so much better than what you buy in the store, not too mention the money saved and I do love doing things for my family.
