G Day Tomorrow

Hey, Y'all,
Well, tomorrow is G-Day (Gall bladder coming out day) and today was a busy day. I was up at 6 a.m. and peeled some apples and made an apple pie for supper tonight. I left the house at a little before 9 a.m., carried the trash off to the New Market Dumpsters, and headed on into Knoxville to do my preregistering for my surgery tomorrow.

After that was finished, I headed back home and stopped at the grocery store to pick up a few items for supper and for the days ahead. My daughter, Carol, had planned on coming to spend some time helping me out, but she is not recovered yet from her illness, and her husband, Daryl, caught her infection and needed her at home, so she will not be here. I told her please not to come, because she is needed more there than here. My sister-in-law, Imazo, has offered to come and help me for a few days, so I am going to take her up on it. I really appreciate her offer. Ladies at the church will be supplying our supper for several days, and we appreciate that as well.

My friend, Mark, will be taking me to the hospital and bringing me home afterwards, and our neighbors will be checking on us as well. We are so very blessed to have so many good friends! We love them all so very much.

I made some baked chicken strips for a salad topping tonight and we had large salads of hearts of romaine lettuce, with cucumber slices, radishes, dried cranberries and raisins, carrots, green peppers, mushrooms, feta cheese along with the chicken strips. For dessert we had the apple pie topped with sugar free ice cream. Gramps just finished up the last piece of apple pie.

After supper we played some card games, which was a lot of fun. Now it is close to 9 p.m. and it probably won't be long before bedtime. I have to be up at 5 a.m. so I can be ready to leave at 6 a.m. and be at the hospital at 7 a.m. The surgery is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. The nurse told me that they may keep me until Wednesday since I am a heart patient.We shall see. Thank you all for keeping me in your prayers. I really appreciate it.

This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for the night.Love to each of you. Bye for now.

You ALWAYS make me feel better! Only you knew how hard it was for me to not be there!
Love you!
ps...the meal sounds better than Applebees!

Hi Grammy, I just wanted to let you know I am thinking of you and hoping your surgery went well and you are recovering. Wish I was there to help you out as well. Hope you will soon be back in the blogging world and feeling much better. Love and hugs.

Friends of Blabbin' Grammy,

Grammy had to have major abdominal surgery to remove what remained of her gall bladder. She is sedated by pain meds in St. Mary's Hospital in Knoxville, where she will remain for several days. Her daughter, Carol, is planning to come from TX over the weekend. Because of privacy laws and her happy state (lalaland), we have nothing further to report on her condition.

Her Niece Andrea

Thanks, Andrea. Update: Her blood oxygen is still low, so pray for them to be able to wisely determine how to treat Mom. I get there around 5:30 tomorrow, (Friday) and will be there until Wednesday afternoon. She is on less pain meds now. Daryl is sick again, but the kids will help me take care of him while I'm gone. Got him back on antibiotics.

Bless yer heart, Carol. You have a very full plate.

Praying for peace and health for all.
