Good News Day!

I have recieved an award. Jo over at Moodscape (jonjdsbitsandpieces.blogspot.com) has given me a "just plain fun to read" award. She loves the writing, photos, family and animals in my life. She always consistently comments on my posts and leaves me funny emails that gives me incentive to keep writing and posting my blog...., and she calls me "Elly Mae".

Dang, Jo, This made my day and it was just a real dog-gone nice thing ta do.
Thank ya kindly, my friend.
*..... and,

I have an update on my friend, Karen. I got an email from her saying that the preliminary report from the kidney specialist was good news. She has minimal change kidney disease that will be very receptive to the prednisone that she is already taking and that this should show some good results. Her heart is ok ( I could have told her that) and she is feeling better. A new water pill is getting rid of some of the fluids that have made her so uncomfortable, which is an understatement because she was so swollen that she felt like a "water balloon ". She very tired because she still has fluid in her lungs. She is not completely out of the woods yet but , as the little boy on the Kaiser ad says...., " Things are looking up." Right Karen?
Bless your heart girl, no one should have to go through what you've been through this last few weeks. The prayers are still coming.

  3. Congratulations! I agree with all Jo had to say about your blog. I love it too.
    Ellie Mae... yes thats a great name.
    Im glad to hear your friend is feeling better. Cheers to her

  4. Well now Ellie Mae, I really can't think of anyone more deserving of that award.

    I am thrilled with Karen's good news....No I think I will change that to 'OUR' good news about Karen. There was a lot of positive energy going her way during the past week or so.

    Hope you are having some comfortable days out your way. It has been hotter than blue blazes here the past few days and the only breeze has been what I stir up when I talk....lol

    We have Riley/Seth duty tonight and then things will start falling back into our usual routine. Going to try to sneak in a nap before watching the boys tonight....Big Hugs coming Atcha.
