OT, ISP and MIL Among Others

The boys had OT yesterday and they are doing so very well that their one time a month has been reduced to 3 times a month. Speech is still twice a month.

I am having trouble with my ISP. My Internet comes and goes when it pleases. Yesterday I was online for maybe an hour and a half all day!!!! I have called tech support and am awaiting directions on what to do next. So forgive me if I am slow or it takes me a while to respond.

My mil seems to be slightly improving. They are going to move her to the cancer floor today and the y have gotten the bleeding to stop (for now). If she goes home (maybe Monday?) , she will do so on Hospice. The doctor said that she is fading though. The cancer is just eating her alive. They are just trying to keep her comfortable. She said she would do it all again, if it meant having time with her family! The doctor said we are looking at 2-6 weeks.

The coupon train currently has 6 members (including myself). If you want to join please email me by 8pm tonight at You need to include your name, address and the types of coupons you want to receive. I hope to have all of the info together, as well as detailed directions to pass along to each of you tomorrow (Saturday). As chaotic as things are right now, there is not a definite time.

Hubby's employer decided to give out W-2's yesterday and I have got to get on the ball with our tax stuff. I am going to try to move our appointment up to Monday. Of course I need my Internet to do some of that.

We will be going back to the hospital tonight when hubby gets home from work and my parents will watch the kiddos.

I have a lot of errands to do today as well. My Mom is going to watch the boys right after lunch so I can go to CVS, Wal-Mart, Piggly Wiggly, the P.O., and Dollar General.

So, that's what going on in my life. Hope yours is going well and you are feeling up to par! Blessings on you!

Good news! It's good to hear that your boys are doing so well with their OT and that your mother-in-law is doing better.

I don't know if you saw my response to your comment or not, but I don't think I had better join the coupon train right now. It's just not a good time with a new baby coming soon.

It is wonderful (in spite of the circumstances)you are able to be with your MIL during this time. My grandmother had colon cancer 7 years ago and was doing well. But for some reason she suddenly went downhill and they gave her only a few days. I tried so hard to get there before she died (we were on opposite ends of the country), but arrived for the funeral instead. It still makes me very sad that I didn't get to see her before she passed. But all her children were there, and they said it gave her so much happiness and peace to have them there. We will continue to pray for your family. Take care.

Thank you everyone for your comments. You are all so very sweet.

Nikki, you have your hands full and I completely understand.

Laura, I am sorry to hear of your Mom's cancer. I don't know what happened to your comment. But, I did read it. Feel free to recomment.

Blessings on you all.
