You all know that we are going to Nashville tomorrow so I can attend boring seminars. Wll my daughter-in-law called and she is ging to have a C-setion Friday morning. The baby is breech and they don't want to tke a chance of her going into labor. So. I will attend 4 hours of boring stuff tomorrow afternoon and Thursday morning-then leave the seminars and go to her house and baby sit the two granddaughters so she can check into the hospital. Anything to get out of seminars. We will have to stay through the weekend and I will be bringing the three year old home with me for a week or so. She won't be happy; but will get over it once we get on the road. Hopefully, Lindsay will be able to care for the newborn next week and my son can get the 7 year old off to school. If he can't I will disown him. Poor Lindsay's day is in the hospital in Nashville and not doing good, so her mother can't help out. Thankfully, this will be my last grandson. He will be number 11.

I am taking Rosie with me and pray that we make it without having to take her to emergency Vet for puking.

Also, I am meeting my 49 year old daughter in Nashville and treating her to a birthday celebration. Going to be a busy rest of the week.

Josie Wales the outlaw kitty is going to the Vet's for the duration. She will be spayed and finish all her vacines. Poor thing, I hate that she will be there all that time; but she is not Rosie and by the time I come back, she should be all over the spaying and glad to get home.

The granddaughters are spoiled rotten, so wish me luck with them.

Well, I am finally home and no internet working at home. I got sick Thursday in the middle of the seminar and had to leave. Lots of money for nothing. Continued to be sick through the whole time and couldn't hold the new baby. John Patrick arrived Friday morning 7 lbs 19 inches and as pretty a baby as anyone could want. The two girls were angels the whole time--thankfully as I wasn't able to tend to them. We got home and my chickens were out. Someone opened the gate to the back yard a complete mystery. Luckily all are accounted for. Rosie slept all the way to and from Nashville. She wasn't happy when we left her Wed night to go to a hotel; but when we came back thursday, she was estatic. Then she didn't mind that we came and went. Sunday though when the suitcases went to the car. She put her toys in her bed and stayed there until we left. She probably would have made it home without the drug, she wasn't gong to let the car leave without her. I think it is anxiety after all. We are going to take her on some shot rides 20 miles or so and see if she pukes. We covered the back seat with a plastic tablecloth just in case, so we will do that again and hopefully she will be over this puking thing.

Monday was awful. I had an echo-gram three weeks ago and wasn't worried about it as no one had called to tell me different; but turns out my aortic stenois has gone from moderate to severe. No way of fixing that except open-heart surgery. I talked the cardio dr into waiting a while. I will see him again in 4 months. So, I definitely won't put any strain on my heart. Rosie and Josie Wales are great stress relievers. Josie was spayed while I was gone and she is running around like nothing happened. I am supposed to keep her from jumping for 3 weeks, but that is impossible. We all three went home yesterday and crawled up in the bed and napped.

By the way, the drug wore off quickly after Rosie got there and walked around a little, same after we got home. But she sure did sleep good during the ride.

Whoa, Lucile, you don't do anything halfway do you? Glad to hear the new grandson arrived and all is well there. Sorry you were sick and had to miss your beloved seminars - what a drag THAT must have been! But it must have been hard to miss the other things you had planned. Mostly, I am very sorry to read about your heart condition. Take good care of yourself, you hear?? Even though I don't know you personally, I would really miss you on here! Glad you have Rosie and the outlaw to de-stress you and climb into bed with you. When I am having an icky day, I sit in the chair and Augie climbs up and it really does help. Take care of yourself!!

Linda, Augie & Finn's Mom

Lucile, it sounds to me like you need some boring seminars to counteract the excitement of the rest of your life. Congratulations on the new baby! Take care of your heart! And, I'm glad to hear Rosie and Josie made it through their traumatic events.

Congratulations on your new grandson!

Glad to hear that the girls were good for you.
Sorry about your heart condition. Take a good rest before you face the surgery, but not too long! You need to get that fixed!

Glad the furry ones can give you comfort while you wait for the surgery.

Lucile, it's good to have you back! Congratulations on the new baby - I know it must have been hard not to get to hold him!

What a relief that Rosie did so well in the car. Maybe now she will be an old veteran and not let it bother her at all!

Please take care of your health - rest up and get it taken care of. Rosie and Josie will take care of things for

Lucille, please don't wait too long to get fixed up. Today is the one year anniversary of my coronary artery stent. It was quite a surprise, although with the ache and pain down my right arm, I should have gotten the message! I was very lucky - no heart damage!! Now I listen to my body. Getting sick at the seminar could be your warning sign. Please take care of yourself. I so enjoy reading your posts
