Loving My Life as Wife, Mother and Grandmother

Wednesday, December 2, 2009


Hello friends!
Sorry I've not been writing...but I am still sick :( I go back to the doctor tomorrow. They did labwork again today...I'll find out tomorrow what they have to say..They did another blood count, checked my thyroid and checked for rheumatoid..The lab tech wasn't happy with how my blood looked..I guess it was too thin and very watery...a sign she said...of how very anemic I still am :(
I've been taking it easy and just laying around and being a couch/bed potato :) I guess maybe, I should feel bad about that...but I don't. :) I really need it I think.
We did start putting up our Christmas tree. In the past, we've always went and cut one down. But last yr. we bought a white one. It's not that big, and nothing fancy...but I like it. I think I just don't have the energy to get really creative this yr. Once I'm finished with it I promise to take a picture...but I'm not done yet :)
Sam has a concert with his co-op next tues. Next week is going to busy...and I'm not looking forward to that...
Sarah is feeling better from her surgery...she had her stitches taken out yesterday. He started her on something to try to stop or at least slow down her periods...
I am so looking forward to feeling better...the sooner the better.
I am curious if the pen-palers want to pen-pal this month...
I thought it would be nice if we sent Christmas cards to everyone on the list this time...If you would rather just send to one person...that would be ok too...just comment and let me know :)
That's all for now....
Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 1 John 4:7
With Love, Jerelene

Hi Jerelene!
I am so sorry that you have to got through all of this crap. I do hope and pray that things will get figured out soon.
Don't worry too much about your decorations. Last year after my stroke, the only thing that I took out was my Nativity. I was very depressed. Didn't even want a tree.
Finally after being asked several hundred times " Aren't you going to get a tree?" I finally broke down the week before Christmas and bought one.
This year has been better. No cash but the spirit is definitely back!
If you need the rest, that's more important than anything. Your family needs you and only you.
I would be happy to pen pal again.
Just let us know and take good care of yourself Jerelene. I've really missed your posts!
Love Di

Jerelene, you poor thing! When will this end for you?!

I am loving the look of your blog here, and I am loving the music, but I am not loving this post.
I wish the doctor could do something once and for all to make you better!
I'm glad your daughter is recovering. Now we have to get you back 100%.
Please rest and don't push yourself.

I'll be happy to send Christmas cards. I'm not sure if I have everyone's address but I think I may.

I hope as the time draws closer to Christmas we hear that you are better.
Take care, Sweetie.
Wish there was something I could do for you.
Love and Prayers,

Have you tried any online searches for all natural relief from some of what you are experiencing? Many times eating or not eating certain foods can reap big benefits.

You worry me sweetie pie and I do want you all well and all happy and energetic.

I am game for whatever you want to do about penpals.

I will be doing more extra special prayers for you, Jerelene. Meanwhile take super good care of yourself.

blessings and prayerful hugs,

Hi Jerelene! Oh I am so sorry you are not up to par yet! Don't let it get you down. There is always tomorrow ya know! Glad to hear that your daughter is recovering as well. Just take it easy. I would love to send out cards...I was hoping that EVERYONE would have an e-mail on their blog so that I could e-mail people and ask them if they would send me their address. I only have 3 addresses. It would be wonderful to add the village to my card list. I love cards! For those of you who don't have an e-mail address posted it is very easy to do! Please do it for those of us who don't know how to get a hold of you! I will keep you in my prayers Jerelene!
