hi linda darren will drop me off and do some yard work and putter around , Hes a smoker and cant go
without so no smoking in house, my son josh will come if i have trouble seeing , etc or cant come due to doctors appointment, etc. I am sure it all will work out, Once anthony grows out of preemie status things will get easier, right now everything is measured and he needs meds through the feeding tube which is scary for me, but Ill get there, Right now he has acid reflux so feeding needs to go slow with a ton of burps and certain angles, But we will get there, S sorry about the wild fires around you so scary, Hope you continue to have have great market days,
sending prayers and love

so sorry linda i will cry with you , i know they do have standing walkers were you hold on higher and are able to walk standing totally upright dont know how much they cost a nice sturdy one anyway that will prevent falls , glad you were able to visit with family, sara had her 6 week appointment and all is well, then she had to take anthony to the cardiologist for an echo and ekg . I am going tomorrow to get in practice before i I have to do it alone, Sept 8th i get my first cataract done,, Hope you have a great week Hugs

Monday morning - so exciting to read and see pics on FB of sweet family times for you and baby.
Our kids were up for weekend - precious loving and encouraging time. Daughter saw my leg give out and although it scared us, she was reassured that i am being cautious and know "how to save from a fall" as I slid into a near chair and did not go all the way down. We had talked about nearing the need of walker for use in public - safer than the two cane method now using. We cried about the declining mobility but then looked at the positive of what can we do to keep independence as long as possibe.

We are such strong strong anti vax people, it makes me sad to hear about people getting it thinking it protects ... broaden the resources you study and really hear some of the science against it and be sure she wants it. i will not argue with people, respecting each and not holding any relationship to that discussion.

I would much rather put my energy and potential on the side of nutrition and nutrients and lifestyle to build immune system against all viruses and have medication on hand for possibility of actually contracting an illness.

Our market was successful yesterday. Got to share our grandaughter alittle bit and thenome to air conditioned home and enjoyed family time. We are getting win nd gentle rain- praying for cooling and control of some of the fires ... air quality is so poor!!! One day at time !!!

you tow are such marvels at wheat you can get done, you are really inspiring, I do hope Janis gets a new little one soon but right now the world is so stressful with covid and all, My sara will be asking her doctor about teh shot as she will need it before she can go back to work, She already had covid so Anthony has some antibodies running around . she wants to protect them both further so since she has read that it is safe for pregnant and nursing moms she is going to get the shot. Enjoy th time with that little Sarah love bug, give her lots of kisses from me, Hugs have a great weekend and a great week ,

Sorry i have been missing in action - in survival mode - we both get so tired at the markets pus Fred works so hard harvesting on the in-between days - we are just oo old for this but he loves it and is planning for net year ...i just pray i can keep up!!!

The kids don't get here till after 9 tonight - so anxious to hold Sarah and see her in person again. Will be hard to go to market without them but they need some rest time and want to just enjoy the "farm" then we will play and visit in the afternoon and then the guys go fishing Sunday morning and all picnic and play in afternoon. I worry about Janis looking so tired ... Pray health into her as she is still grieving the miscarriages so deeply. Getting close to when the second one would have been born so she is going through all the emotions of that.

Rejoicing that you have finally gotten to hold precious Anthony...nothing like holding the grandbaby!!! You will do fine caring for him - when it is time for Sara to go to work...she will be only a call away and you will both be nervous but God is in control of all this. Just walk and talk with Him right there beside you.

Hard but profitable market day - my chest got a bit tight the first hour of rush - recognized that i need to slow it down a bit and debated about taking a nitro and told Fred but things settled down and we coasted through the rest of the day pretty well - napped when we got home.

So excited with these good days for Anthony ... and sounds like life adjustments are going well for you too. Hugs and Prayers!!!

Friday morning and did not sleep well - night mares like i have not had is YEARS!!!
Spiritual warfare going on!! Am needing a time of retreat and spiritual refilling - I can't see a time for that to happen until October but will be more aware of the need and careful to get in daily devotional study and quiet time. I think part of this is the loss of my spiritual mentor and prayer warrior in my life the last December plus the drain of the several other deaths and grief ministry. emoticon Fill my cup Lord

Hard physical day at market yesterday, will be protective of rest time today.
Thrillling to the bits of good news about little Anthony.
And how are you doing Grandma??? Take extra good care of you and Darren so you will be ready for grandparenting when Anthony get to go home.

We had good market, very smokey in the morning but breeze is lifting the smoke out of valley. Today started clear but now is closing in on us. Sold all our produce - biggest income this year with 343 ears of corn.

Doing good and resting today

Monday morning and I am behind in getting to computer time. hubs needed the encouragement of me fixing him a good breakfast. He usually does his own on M-W-F as they are my low calorie days but I spoiled him a bit with fresh fruit, hash browns and bacon with two eggs and of course coffee. I enjoyed the last of the apricots and eggs and iced coffee.

Smiling at your FB not that Darren walked with you this morning...awesome!!!

Praying for little Anthony each day.

Saturday evening - another market done and our first corn of the season sold - 147 ears was small first picking and sold it all in less than 30 minutes. Totally sold out again but the parking situation was such that e could not leave for another hour due to others blocking our trailer in. Good converstaion time with some friends that stopped by.

Home and had two hour nap and then cool meal of tuna salad fresh cantaloupe and ice cream. I need to check the carbs and effects of cantaloupe on my blood sugars - they have been so good all week, i felt comfortable testing them out today. Tuna is a good protein balance for me usually so hoping that helps.

So lad little Anthony is popping and will be pooping as soon as they let him eat something - just trusting the Lord has those innards straightened out for always!!! Blessings of a wonderful Sunday for you.

Friday Morning - Day 24 of 30 day plateau busting challenge - Consistantly below baseline in weight and blood sugar has done very well and now i'm evaluating/choosing better nutrient foods ...going to record sodium from food tracker and look closer at foods ...Cottage cheese is high so need to compare brands.

Life is getting into a routine of market and rest - my pain levels and exhaustion are so high when we come home that i cannot do anything but sit in recliner for a couple hours then can do a little computer communicating and then good night's sleep.

Prayer list of needs and support in love continues to be focus through my days - God is so faithful - fun to journal the answers to prayer. .

linda I will pray for your friend Barb , sorry about the garden so glad your numbers are good, hope those fires stay away, anthony is going to have a repeat lower gi as he had a lot of gas they are trying to see if his intestines are malrotated . If they are they will be a fight between them and the heart doctors as to who operated first and when, they better hurry up because he isnt eating until they figure it out and if they wait to long he may forget how. partially joking Hope your reat of the week is good,

I woke happy this morning - thankful for that and all my health numbers were good [O2, BP, wt and Fasting blood sugar] - I think there is definite connection to carb intake and my emotional rollercoaster - lungs are doing well even with high smoke from state fire - but wind is moving the smoke up and out of our valley and air purifier in our bedroom helps.

So thrilled with good report on Anthony.

Prayer request for friend Barb - waiting to be scheduled for heart valve surgery and had episode of A-fib - in hospital to stabalize and hopefully get surgery set up soon.

Market day but very few tomatoes on the vines and corn did not ripen enough yet so ill be same amount of ork with less to sell - should come home early.

Hope you had a good day we are a mexican restaurant we had soup with beans and lime and beef broth with onions and cilantro , . we had tacos that were like grilled cheese with beef and onions and potatoes inside so different but so good. hope your garden is still growing great Hugs

linda i am so very sorry for the gardens i hope they hang on and produce what you need, . Darren is getting unemployment but now they want job searches etc and he is not computer savvy and won't ask for help and makes everything worse, I told him Sara will help him after supper but instead he has a friend over. Later at 730 the baby needs an mri on his wrist to see if the infection went to the bone as he is still showing signs of infection in his bones, he is having stomach issues poor boy and may need an operation . oh well i do feel better today after seeing sara and anthony in video , Hugs

Joanne, just holding you tight in prayer for a while this morning - you have kept the upward look so well and this is all hard - yes heartbreaking right now. Praying for strength for you, for Annie to learn to trust you and come to love you; praying for Darren work - is he able to draw unemployment? and how are his spirits? God bless you both and of course always prayers for Sara, Michael and little Anthony. Take good care of you - wish I could blink and be there to encourage!
My Daily effort is to accept the changes in my physical lack of ability and to not get too depressed - to just keep on keeping on in what the Lord seems to have for me to do and not give up --balancing reality and effort is hard.
We have growing wild fires in all directions but none in our immediate valley - Air quality is POOR and smokey - hard for COPD hubby lungs and our gardens are really showing the damage of the terrible heat of the last weeks - production is lowering daily and showing in low amount of marketable produce. Step by step we will do hwat we can and pray for it to stretch to meet needs of customer and our livelihood.

Our little Sarah is growing and doing well - just had 18 month check up and doing well or ahead on all measures and skills. No more breathing episodes but will continue her reflux med until she out grows this dosage in weight. This is something they usually out grow so will try it when she is bigger and then re-evaluate. That little family is so happy, have recently gotten Mama a "mom car", sold her old one privately and also sold Daddy's old boat and got smaller "family boat" this weekend - they are working hard but also able to play hard and are so happy - have snuggled into their new church just five minute drive from home instead of the 45 minute drive to their old one.

Reading and enjoying pictures of little Anthony growing - trusting the abcess on arm was causing the problems and all will settle down now. I also pray Annie is happier and settling into your home better. Take good care of you through it all.

Linda so nice to have friends visit from a far and glad you are feeling better, was wondering how Sarah is with her swallowing problem any more episodes is she doing okay .As we have been worrying about Anthony's heart an infection is giving him more problems, Even though he was on Tylenol and strong antibiotics he was still getting fevers, He had a nasty abscess caused by his iv line , It is now lanced and drawn , He looks and feels better no more throwing up and just one little fever today , God is good , Hope you have a great week and happy you sold out, Hugs

Take care through Elsa... I have never been through tropical storms or hurricanes so that is all foreign to my thinking.

Praying good decision s and improvement in infections markers/numbers - will alays need to be doubly aware of them with stents. The Lord has special plans and purpose for little Anthony so I look forward to wartching him grow.

Loving on you from afar.

I am exhausted and overdone so just resting today - need to get office work done but not today! I need to re-evaluate meds, meals, efforts and SLOW DOWN till I catch up with myself!!

I'm sad to see SP go, but honestly very happy that I've found WW is better for me anyway. The points vs. calories has been a real eye-opener for me. A favorite breakfast I was eating has 12 points -- almost half of my daily allotment of basic points (not counting weekly points and zero point foods). They have a lot of the same features as SP. Yes, I have to pay for it at the end of the summer, but I'm finding I can eliminate some other expenses to afford it. My health is more important than some other things. If you want, send me an email here on SP. I'll be checking in a few more times before they close it down in order to print up some recipes I've saved. Take care of your hearts and God bless!

Praying for progress for Anthony ... so tiny and so thankful for days and growth.

Our Sarah is one and a half today!!

Farmer's market was a DUD [Freds word!]...100degrees and poor day - low attendance and low sales Struggling with poor attitude today. Wil need to be careful to guard against "comfort eating" but must get things done and get over this mood.

Praying for family and Dr decisions and planning surgeries for little Anthony

Praying for Annie to learn lots of behaviour improvements - dogs are happier when they know they are pleasing masters

Another market today- this one is supposed to be only 100-105 - we have so many tomatoes!

I am way behind in office work, bank deposit etc ... pray for clarity of mind and energy.

linda what an honor to be part of the market board for years i bet it was not easy. your neighbor should have been up watering the fields etc sorry it had to fall to you People are so inconsiderate lately, a hockey player died hitting his head getting out of a hot tub when a
firework went astray . so tragic , Thanks for the prayers for this much loved boy, Two weeks old and been through so much , Hope you have a great week Hugs

Watching and praying and keeping about one picture a day in my Anthony file. I am such a visual pray-er that they help me focus and be specific in my talking with Jesus about his needs and victories and yes, the worries too.

We had a wakeful night last night after a neighbor set of hours of fireworks in the ban area - we are so rural, we have to do our own watching and prevention and so we alternated turns of checking through the night that there would be no fires starting. God is faithful and all is ell thus far. Afraid we don't feel very neighborly now - but will be a practice in forgiveness.

I have market board meeting today - only three or four more and then my term will be up and I can not worry about that drive and the details/politics of running the market. Will be a relief!!!

wow linda so cool to see a cousin from texas what a special honor, sorry about your tomato's, we are lucky that Michaels grandma is a big prayer and it helps having so many friends lift me up, so sad as this place closing as where most of my friends come from. I miss my half hour talks with sara 3 times a week when she was working but i know she is so busy with Anthony and nurses and doctors and her husband, Miss annie is having a better day , she needs to listen to us as it looks like we will have her for about three weeks, how was your pup with the fireworks , our town was so loud but annie didnt notice, we have the best in our state , lol and she slept through most of them, your right one day at a time have a great week Hugs

Deep breath and keep the faith strong for Anthony - more surgery is disappointing and scary - How do you all keep calm? - I know it is trust and obedience - I have never walked a mile in your shoes - loving and praying for you and Sara and Anthony and even pray for Annie to feel loved, confident and not needing to act out.

Market was disappointing to us - brought home lots of our tomatoes - really frustrating when we push so hard to get the produce all picked and polished and see it wasted , One day at a time.

We had glorious visit with my cousin frm Texas yesterday - so fun to spend time just second time in our lives to see each other one on one. I am thankful

I thrill to read Anthony's progress every day!!! Oh for him to be able to go home and into Grandma's arms!!! Soon!

Poor Annie - that is one advantage of having little boy dog!

Heat is to be harsh several more days but yesterday was supposed to be the worst!! Some of our tomatoes are literally cooked on the vine!!! but some good fruit for needs of whole sale commitments and still have some for markets.

Soooo excited about baby Anthony's progress and they get to hold him!!!!

Excited to see my scales down one today first time to see a 12 in a long time!!! We will try market tomorrow Forecast still says 115-117 but I won't let Fred go alone. And we just can't let hundreds of $$$ of produce spoil without trying to be available to customers that might brave the heat.

Loving the good progress reports on Anthony - just got to pray him home so you can hold him!!! I love the testimony of faith in your family over this little guy!!

Market as 95-100 but strong breeze and we were in total shade and did well.
Rested really good last night and planning gentle day today and prep for possible visit of daughter and family this weekend - depending on if they found small air conditioner for their bedroom window as we only have one unit for living room. Forecast is now up to 114 for monday and tuesday.

Was up praying for baby Anthony at 3am our time so 6am your time i think... then note to pray when alarm range at 5:30 = 8:30 your time... WIll check facebook through the day... Loving praying and trusting God's perfect plan.

Rested most of yesterday - had some chest tightness in the evening one nitro eased it and felt good the rest of evening and slept well. Vitals all OK this morning. Going to be hot market - learning to sit in chair more of the time - supports me and less tiring.

Praying Praying Praying - keeping in the Facebook loop at least 4 times a day for prayer updates. Loving on all of you!

Completed the Challenge Diabetic Wt loss today - Claiming two pounds lost - short of my goal but consistent 214 for I think 5 of the last 7 days so I'm content and even saw one 213 so will continue my efforts and go on to another challenge to finish out the Sparks time on line

Day 30 of 30 Day Diab Wt Loss Challenge Wt 214..0= baseline -2# emoticon
FBS 106 = Goal +7 Definite exercise connection with getting the blood sugar down - hard to be consistent but will work at it and challenge myself to continue what I have learned this month.

They are not sure if this is a one time thing or if it anther issue for them to worry about. Hope your hubby had a nice fathers day . Mine did although it was quiet . Today is saras hubby's first fathers day and their anniversary what a way to spend it, my heart breaks for them and me because i cant see my grandson or touch him because people didnt get a shot or wear a mask, Annie was so fresh today after seeing her mom and dad yesterday , she peed and pooped in the house. ripped up papers and tp, grabbed the english muffins and put them in her bed. lol she also stole my lotion and was eating it in our bed , Just to tell you a few of her antics, Tomorrow I am getting up early and walking her till she is too tired to move lol, today was too hot, and darren went for groceries early.

Oh WOW - praying through the day for baby and Mama and grandma ...well Daddy and grandpa too but you know what I concentrate on!!
Picturing Jesus right there taking care of it all.

Our market went well - sold out and saw a few dear friends that i have not seen in years so extra precious day - fell asleep in chair and woke at 10pm and went to bed.

Our neighbor's son died yesterday - so will begin the coming along side grieving ones again... will go get groceries for them today and see what more we can do - they have large extended family.for support.

Hubs is soooo tired today - i worry but he would not be happy not doing thi so must just be supportive and love him through each day.

thanks for the great ideas . Sara is in hospital being induced since 10 am as of 6 pm not much progress 3 cm and 50percent effaced, .We have annie here . the baby really didn't grow much and because of protein in Sara's urine and slightly high bp they had her go in, Thank goodness they were already packed, Michael left work picked up all their stuff and off he went, later darren showed up michael let him in remotely he picked up all the dog stuff as it was all packed , He sprung annie from the kennel and then sara remotely locked the house back up so cool, so it looks like late tonight or early tomorrow i will have a grandbaby, Hugs God is good ,

Praying you through each day of anticipation for baby - sounds like you have plan in place for detils - be sure to tke good care of you too - I got 4x6 photo albums at the Dollar store for our grandbaby pictures - made little note cards and put them in too - DATE and rite name on the back of EVERY ONE of them because they all run together in our memories and which baby it is if there are more in later years... fun to put in pictures of your Sara at the same age too.

linda hope that sugar settles down for you maybe as you get more active, I will pray, Baby more that likely will go to nicu after birth than picu after surgery at about a week old, that is the plan now, only parents allowed in so as soon as sara or michael sends pictures i will post them . we will keep annie as long as they need and promised to send a ton of pictures to them as they will miss her. Michaels sister is taking care of the cats sara has another appointment tomorrow so as long as her blood pressure is good and no more protein in urine it will be the 29th , I am excited and a little scared but God is good we can handle and do this, Hugs hope farmers markets go well for you Hugs for a good week

Baby is getting so close - do you have phone that takes good pics or good camera? I'm so excited for you!!! praying every day many times through the day for baby heart health in particular.

Day 24 of 30 Day Diab Wt Loss Challenge Wt 214.0= baseline -2# FINALLY seeing a drop of 2# , two days in a row!!
FBS 109 = Puzzled that I have not been able to get it down to 100 since the high fever a week and half ago??? all other vitals are back to normal and feel fine and diet is back to basics but blood sugar does not go down at all like it used to. Exercise is not up to par is the only element of routine i can "blame" .

Day 23 of 30 Day Diab Wt Loss Challenge Wt 214.2 baseline -1.8# FBS 114 =Goal +15

Yesterday was very good day with friend - good for both of us!!! But left me very drained. 45 minute drive into the mountains then emotions and 45 minute drive back at 5pm. but i rested well and feeling good about it all this morning.

Daughter got good report from her mamo-gram repeat studies - looks like multiple cysts and much fibrous tissue but not concerned - will retest in 6 months 1yr and 2 years unless she has another pregnancy which we are praying about.
