5211-2 and a Memaw update

Week 2 did not turn out quite like I'd hoped, but I am rolling with it anyway.  It seems to have somewhat of a retro 80's vibe and we all know I love me some 80's!



Hoping to start some fun little photo challenges over on the 52 Week Project blog very soon.  I'm always needing some new motivation and a challenge is always, well, a Challenge! HA

In other news of my life besides this project that seems to be the only thing I've blogged about in a few weeks {sorry to be so repetitive}, my MIL finally got out of the hospital. (insert cheers) - It's been over 3 weeks and we are truthfully just 'plum' wore out!  She is in a local long-term rehab that is in a nursing home.  It's not the ideal situation by any means, but we are just praying every day that just being in there will keep her attitude positive and her body and mind motivated to get the heck out of Dodge!  

I have such a new perspective of aging - it's really a sad thing in all honesty.  BUT, I also don't think we can give up hope at that point either.  That is not what God wants. He has a reason for it.  My emotions have been from one end of the spectrum to the other on this can you tell? 


Thanks for all the prayers for Memaw.  We really felt them all and I know that is what got her through the ordeal of being a 91 year old broken-hip-going-through-some-rehab-having-a-heart-attack-plus-pneumonia-heart-cath-complications-afterwords-pseudo-aneurysm-in-both-legs-almost-having-to-have-another-surgery-constipated and incontinent-having woman!

Keep praying for her recuperation and hopefully back home with us soon!

Remember that time is an issue if you are experiencing one or several of the symptoms. The sooner a person seeks medical attention for symptoms of an impending heart attack, the more likely it is that the person will survive. Do not try to tough it out, or wait and hope that the discomfort that you are feeling will go away. There is never any harm in seeing the doctor, and having her tell you that you are fine. However, if you don’t see a physician, there is a fairly good chance that the heart attack will kill you. Don’t risk it.

So glad to hear Memaw is doing better! We will continue praying out here, as the road to recovery and release from a rehab center is long and slow.

As for the repetative posts, we all repeat things we are passionate about. Loving how excited you are for the 52 week project! Keep the posts coming!
