This little patriotic friend came to hang out with me for the 4th! sent to me from one of my dear blogger friends, Kim. isnt she adorable? So is Kim.. thank you sooo much my friend.
Just need to tell you that you are all awesome. I love that I can count on so many people who Ive never met in person (though some of you I have met) to pray for Jacob and Im happy that you are all invested in his precious life. I just hope you never get tired of hearing about him! His surgery went well yesterday. He is a little fighter. I am grateful. I was at Jacobs side just looking at him and praying for him and listening to a couple of his drs talking and I was totally in awe of how freaken brilliant they are. Their levels of intelligence and competence is amazing!. I am so grateful that there are brilliant people taking care of Jacob. And again, so thankful for all of your prayers.
so a while back I recieved a little package in the mail.. a message in a bottle! Once I figured out how to open it, I found a special little invitation to go to canada for a weekend of girl time and crafting at Sandy Camardas. I have been looking forward to going since then. the past couple weeks I was up in the air as to whether or not I would be going because I didnt want to leave Jacob, my son or Vanessa. Im am very nervous about being away. but I am going. Jacob is in the best hands possible and I need to get away. I am really looking forward to spending time with some girlie pies and kicking back a bit. I hope I am able to relax. Ive been sooo uptight and stressed and worried.. I need to go.
so I'll be leaving in about an hour to head to the airport to pick up Lulu. We'll get some breakfast and make a couple store stops to pass a little time before Nat is free from work and then we'll hook up with her and head to canada! woohoo! I'll be taking lots of pictures to show you when I get back!
Returning on sunday, but I will probably go directly to the hospital before coming home..
Im presetting a post for tomorrow with pictures of the the swap piece I made and also of the gifties for the girls.. I didnt make my gifts for the girls I bought them from another artist. under the circumstances I just couldnt make them.. but they are going to love them.
OKeedokie.. Please keep praying for Jacob to have a quiet stable, uneventful weekend of healing.
I seriously have butterflies in my stomach at the thought of being 3 hours away from the hospital... but my daughter is ready to come get me if I need to go home. please pray that doesnt happen..
ok.. got to run!!
Love love love you all!!!
