Wednesday's and I have a "love/hate" relationship I love going to church on Wednesday nights I just hate the rushiness...(I don't think rushiness is a word, if not it is now) Here in the Jeffrie's House we have a schedule and at 9pm ALL children are in the bed, but on Wednesday nights with many children getting baths and grabbing a snack it turns into well...RUSHINESS...

ALL the kids went to see Tony tonight in the Hospital...many kids in a small room with MANY blinking buttons, rubber gloves, oxygen valves, and a husband on pain medication makes for a "Calgon take me away moment" but I could tell he was glad to see them all and they were glad to see him.

The Doctor said this morning he didn't see a big change since last night, he is still a little unsure of any solid food so he told Tony maybe tomorrow...maybe.
Husband was a little down tonight, he isn't recovering as quick as he thought he would and I could tell he was down when I came in to check on him after church..I felt really bad leaving him tonight, but I was most certain the Hospital would not allow all 4 button pushing, rubber glove blowing uping, T.V. channel changing children (and one delirious Mom) to stay all night so out the door we went.

Once again thank you for the prayers and comments left here on the blog, they get me through the day. Blessings.

Not One More Thing..

Not One More Thing..

This is a statement I have learned to NOT say because just as sure as I do...That one more thing is piled on.

It flops right on top of the load of laundry that still is in the basket unfolded
It jumps right on running back and forth trips to the hospital..It screams "HERE I AM" while trying to adjust to an extra kid in the house....

It is overwhelming me just a tad...

But today I read a comment from one of my blogger friends and she included this

He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. Col. 1:17

It was what told me I COULD handle, withstand, endure, survive that one more thing...I don't hold it all together, no matter how much I would like to think all my shedule ,planning , thinking ahead has to do with the day the bottom line is "He is before all and in HIM ALL THINGS HOLD TOGETHER"

***Thank you for your comment today Lorie, it truly snapped me back to my knees to seek the answers from God the only one who really knows what's going on around here***

Update on Husband: We have now determined he has chron's disease...not what we had hoped for but it is what it is...he hasn't had solid food since Saturday and the Dr. say none til Thursday. There is so much inflammation he thinks it's best to wait until Thursday to give his body time to recover. If all goes well he will get out of the hospital by Friday or Saturday. He said to thank all the strangers that were praying for him (he had just gotten a pain shot about 10 min before)

My blood pressure is weird it was 180/101 this morning when I got out of bed but tonight it was 168/92...but I am glad it is lower tonight. I'll be glad when it levels out.

Thanks again to all the friends out there who have taken time out of their day to pray for us and who have left comments. Blessings.

I'm not gonna make this a long post just an update...

I spent the day out of bed all day which was a good thing since the last week has been in the bed. My blood pressure is still up but I'm hoping this medicine will kick in soon.

Now for the "Lord what in the world is going on around here"

The Doctor put Tony (Husband) in the Hospital tonight...He thinks his colitis is acting up again, his blood work came back showing there is infection and he is unable to walk upright because there is so much pain in his lower stomach.

Am I a touch stressed? Uh...that would be a yes.

But I know God is in control and he will see us through, Please pray that NO ONE else in this house is put in the hospital..when you begin to know the nurses by name that means you have been there long enough (grin)Blessings.

A Little Pressure...

Today is first day I have had my computer on in a week, I had surgery on my leg Monday morning and they removed a rather large cyst from right leg...and I must brag on the "small" Hospital where I had my surgery done they were very kind and took great care of me. The problem started after I got home Monday afternoon....
Out of nowhere I got a horrible headache and started vomiting, Tony went to town to get some medicine for me, mean while my Dad stopped in to check on me and called Tony to tell him I had gotten worse, when he got here he took me straight to the ER where they gave me a shot to try to ease the headache and one for nausea. The Doctor decided to keep me until the next day. They thought that the sedation medicine they gave me during the surgery had caused the headache, so I got to come home except that the whole headache thing started again last night and my blood pressure went sky high again, so back to the Doctor today when I got there my blood pressure was 169/102 (no wonder my head was hurting) so I got another shot in the rear to try and ease the headache and they have started me on blood pressure much for a simple surgery...Thank you Sister for manning the salon while I've been out..Thank you Dad and Mom for all the help with the kids, supper , and laundry I don't know what I'd do without you! And to Husband Thank You for getting up at 5:30am to get the kids ready for school (even though you had got home from work at 2am) and taking such good care of me...I Love You.
So thats what's been going on around here, thanks to all who have been praying. Blessings.

Getting Back On Track

Is it just me or do you feel a little overwhelmed when you have been sick and have to step back into the "real world" not that Moms ever really get a full day off( (sick or not,) but the whole schedule thing around here has been out of wack, and the fact that the kids are on fall break adds a little to the whole off schedule thing. My oldest (Chad) is in Florida with my Sister and her family visiting Alex her son, I have talked with them almost every night and they inform me that it is 100 degrees there, lots of sunshine a beach within 2miles and they are staying in a house with a pool and hot tub....nice. Cassie is at her Dads this week and Chase well, he kinda had plans to go to the Smokey's but because of the flu he wasn't able to go so we've kinda hung out here at home, and took a few sporadic trips to the store nearby at 8pm to grab a frappuccino (which is a big deal, cuz I rarely leave my house once I'm home.) Chase is at a friends house tonight so maybe his fall break won't be completely boring.
I had to go to see a surgeon today, I have a place on my leg that appears to be a cyst, we thought it might be a varicose vein but after seeing the Doctor today he said it was some sort of "growth" not necessarily a cyst, or tumor just something that needed to be removed, so I am scheduled to go next Monday morning to remove the "unknown growth" Doesn't seem to be a big deal, the Hospital on the other hand is a bit well...small my Dad and I joked about it on the way home, saying it makes our local Hospital look like the Hilton, when I called Husband to tell him about it he wanted me to cancel and go to a different Hospital (worry wart) but I think it will be fine...hopefully (grin)
I'll be back to work tomorrow trying to get back into the groove, what ever that is..hope all is well at your house! Blessings!

Just in case you wondered

Just in case you wondered where I have been...

I have been in the bed with the flu...

On the couch with the flu...

Pacing the floors at 2am with an aching body with the flu..

On the phone with a very panicked Bride (whom is getting married Sat.) reassuring her I will be in the Salon Sat. Morning fever free to do her hair for her big day while eating Tamiflu and Motrin and drinking Ginger Ale praying that the room will stop spinning....

I have been "fever free" for 24 hours which means I will be able to go to work tomorrow. A wedding party of five...please pray (grin)

Chase is totally recovered from the flu and his face has healed up nicely, the other kids and Husband have been flu free and healthy.

I must brag on all of them they have taken great care of me, washing dishes, clothes and the boys haven't done any bodily harm to each other this week (grin)
Hope everyone is healthy your way! Blessings.

Just a note to say thank you to all that have been praying for Chase, I thought we were in the clear, but an abscess appeared on his face Saturday and the whole side of his face became swollen so after consulting with our Doctor (who happens to go to the same church...perks of living in a small town.) I went home to break the news to Chase that we would have to go to the ER..there they had to lance the spot and drain the infection...Thank goodness for my Dad stopping by the Hospital to assist in the procedure...nothing like Pop being present in the room to calm a frantic kid down..the whole thing was not for the weak stomach which I use to not be but in the middle of watching assuring my son it would be over soon I found my self feeling on the woozy side, I will most defiantly send Husband next time (grin)
After a round of flu and now this I hope poor Chase will be on the way up. Please continue to pray. Blessings.

I am most certain that I will not be receiving the MOTHER OF THE YEAR AWARD this year....

In my last post I wrote that Chase my 13yr.old had an earache and the next day I took him to the Doctor with complaints of a earache and sore throat, his ear looked a little red but no big deal, his throat showed no signs of redness and he had no fever he seemed to be fine last night and this morning when he got on the bus to go to school, so when the Nurse called from school today to say Chase was in her office again I ask her if he had a fever and she said no but he said his throat hurt I said give him Motrin and he'll be forward to 3:30 this afternoon...Chase all but crawled off the bus and drug himself in my salon in tears, I then realized he had a fever (102) So while I rushed to rinse hair color off of my clients my Mom took Chase to the ER and I met her there they tested him for the Flu and it came back positive for Influenza A (better known as swine flu) they sent us home with medicine in hand and said to bring him back if his symptoms got worse, he has been asleep since we've been home only waking up to take his meds and drink a little sprite..(now I'm having the whole Mom guilt thing) so I'm prepared for a long night seems like the later it gets the more restless he gets..please pray for a quick recovery and that my other two don't get the flu..Blessings.
