Sunday Tidbits

Life here on the farm has been full of challenges lately and I am ready for some changes. Many of you are aware of the surgeries that my grand doll has had on her legs, but I am happy to say that following the last one, which removed the pins and plate from her right leg, she has recovered nicely and is a ball of energy again. Praise God that her right leg is finally straight and pray that the left one straightens up as well. I can't remember if I have shared much about my mother in law or not, but she has been suffering with hallucinations for over a month now and we truly have  no idea as to what has caused them. Doctors have made medicine changes and "guessed" at many things. Her time in rehab is almost over and so we are at a point that we must decide whether she comes home or goes to assisted living and I believe that is the direction we are heading. Her husband is 10 years older than her and so he truly is not capable of taking care of her in the manner she needs.

Missing 8 Month Old

An 8 month old baby from Indianapolis, IN was last seen by her mother on Thursday or Friday (conflicting stories) and was reported missing on Saturday. By no means am I a trained investigator or police officer, but I am a mother and grandmother and this story simply breaks my heart and watching interviews with this young girl makes me furious as she seems to show no remorse or real concern that her child is gone. Amiah Robertson, an 8 month old baby is gone and no one seems to have any idea as to where she is. How, why? Amiah is a white female with blond hair and blue eyes. She weighs about 13 pounds. She is believed to be in extreme danger and may require medical assistance. A young mother that says she left her with her boyfriend who was taking her to a sitter and that he was a little upset with her because she was getting back together with the child's father. What kind of lame explanation is that? Supposedly that was Thursday and she did not report her missing until Satur

Surgery Update

Just a quick post to let everyone in my blog world know that my grand doll came through surgery just fine. She is in some pain, but all hardware is gone from the right leg as it is now straight (Praise God!) Her left leg had to have all the hardware replaced in it as the doctor was concerned that the plate might be bent from the screw being broken off. She said it did not appear to be but that she wanted to make sure that all was well. Praise God once again!  I am thankful for a doctor that explains what is going on and gives us the information that we need to make correct choices. I am also thankful that she is doing well. She has been walking since about 3 hours after surgery, although slower and with some help. I truly believe she thinks that she can't walk due to the bandages on her legs. At age 3, I will say that she is a real trooper. I told her today that she was a super hero! I am still not well, but doing better. Mother in law is in rehab getting the care that she need

Another Sick Week and Grand Doll Updates

Well, the farm certainly needs to see some sunshine, feel the spring warmth, and give us some time to heal and feel better. Sick is the word of the week here!  It seems that everytime I feel better it is only for a day or two and then watch out! As most of my faithful readers and friends know, I have been extremely busy with my mother in law. Something happened with her 2 weeks ago this past Friday following a urinary tract infection and things spiraled fast downhill. We are still having hallucinations of bugs and worms, but she is fully alert and can tell us what is going on each day and where she is, date, President and many other important details. Seeing multiple doctors and visiting three hospitals, did not get us any answers and has actually caused more issues due to the changes that were made in her meds.  I have tried for over a week now to get her into a rehab facility where she can receive more specialized care and some physical therapy that she desperately needs. It's

Life on the Farm Update

I apologize that I have been so quiet here and I apologize that this post will be rather short. On Tuesday Feb. 19, we began having some medical issues with my mother in law. They progressed rather quickly until she was having hallucinations on that Friday. The family doctor said she thought the cause was an antibiotic that she had been started on and sent us to the hospital for bloodwork. I won't tell you the hospital story, but she was transferred to a neuro-psychiatric hospital from there instead of being admitted for observation as the family doctor had suggested. She stayed there for three days until I could get her released. Brought her home for one day, took her to another emergency room as the problem continued. The doctor there admitted her and said he would get to the bottom of the problem. She stayed there for two days and had many tests but we still do not have a diagnosis. They released her on Wednesday evening and we now have her home with the same hallucinations
