I thought I'd update while I had a chance. It seems that things have been busy. This friday is Kyle's birthday. We aren't having his party until next Saturday...there seemed to be lots of scheduling conflicts with people, so we just postponed. Our little man will be 2 years old!!! Man, I don't have babies anymore. I have a 4 year old and a 2 year old...that just seems crazy. I don't think he feels well, sometimes you just know. So we may be visiting the dr. soon. I forgot to mention that when we went to the ENT that he said Kyle is good for now. That's not to say that he won't have to eventually get tubes, but right now he is okay. And he did great on all the test they do on them. But everytime he gets the slightest bit sick, I always assume it's his ears.

My granddad, which by the way, spell check says two d's, so I guess I was spelling it right. Anyways, he's not doing so great. So far the plan is to move him to Plainview to a behavioral unit. They are going to try to get his medicine fixed, b/c she is just being difficult and violent at times. If he continues to behave that way, he will not be able to stay in Post. They will have to put him in a lock up unit here in Lubbock. At first, I shuttered at the thought, b/c I just had a terrible image of a "lockup unit", but then I remembered my week long career at Carillon. I was in skilled nursing, and I worked in a lock up unit for dementia and alzheimers. So it's not what I was really thinking, as far as being barbaric. I still hope they can adjust his medication so that he can stay in Post with my grandmother. Or he could go live with the man at Carillon who sexually harrassed me, or the the crazy lady who had multiple personalities, or the man who was always looking for his canoe. I have so many funny stories from that place! Old people...gotta love them. They are definately my favorite age group. On a serious note though, please pray for him.

My other grandmother, my Mema, started having chest pain on Saturday. I took the kids to Slaton and we ate lunch with her. She's 92, and still doing very well. She is doing okay, but she is going to have some tests done to see what is going on with her.

Madi is going to Colorado with Neva on Friday. They are going to Nathan's grandparents place. They have never met Madi. I barely met them last November. We went to pick Madi up from Neva's house. She spent a few days before Thanksgiving with them, and so we made a little detour to see his grandparents. I am going to miss her, but I know she will have a great time.

On another note, I ask for your prayers. I really can't give a lot of details at this point...if I told you I would have to kill you. So I'm just looking out for all of you. I know I am being completely vague, and I would hate you too if I read that on your blog and you didn't explain, but all in good time. Everything is fine...really very good. I just need prayers that I may listen to God's spirit and know that He is guiding me, and to trust that!!! Anyways, I will give more details when I can.

Not a whole lot else is going on. I got to see Ryder today. He is a cute little boy. They had his pics made last week at Family Photo. They asked if they could use them for display in the store. So if you see a little picture of a baby in there, it could be him. It's not that hard to spot, b/c he has a beanie on with his name on it. Well I wish you all blessed weeks!

I will be praying for your grandfather, grandmother and you. I hope you can find peace and trust in all of these situations through God. I can't believe Kyle will be two!!!! I am really going to miss seeing those boogers when school starts up again :( We need to plan a play date or something. My summer has just gotten away from me with the challenges that my little guy has brought. He is such a bitter sweet age right now!

You and your family are on my prayer list. That is just so heart-breaking about your granddad. I really hope they can get his meds straightened out.

Love you and hope you find peace.

I never knew Kyle's birthday was a day before Kyler's. Kyler will be 4 this Saturday. Crazy! And Kole and Kyle are only like a month and a half apart. Kyle seems so tall to me.

I pray you find peace and I know the Lord will shine His blessings on you like He always does. I am so sorry your family is having to deal with all this stuff with your granddad. I hope everything works out for the best.
