My daughter, while being wife and mommy, and holding down full time teaching positions, has devoted as much time as she could to being his tower of strength throughout this process.
Today, she proudly watched the reward of Tim's very great effort, and her own. Tim received his Associates degree !
And his mom got to fly in from Oklahoma to be there for the big day and to spend a week with the family.
WHICH was also important because of the fact that my youngest grandson celebrated his 8th birthday today ! That's the baby of the family and he's not a baby anymore ! I don't have birthday celebration photos yet, but maybe I can update with them later.
Sadly, my computer won't let me download the rest of the photos that I want to share.
Anyway, it was a blessed day all around. I wish I could have spent it with them.
Instead, I drove to the local medical center first thing this morning to try and get some relief from this SNOTTY nose and cough I've had for a week. I've self-medicated all week, but when the cough was very painful in the middle of the night, I knew that I wanted x-rays. Good news is that a bit of bronchitis is all that showed from the lung shots,......NO PNEUMONIA , praise God ! So, I got a antibiotic/steroid cocktail shot in the hip.,,,,,,,,,which nearly rendered me one-legged for about 15 minutes.......and a couple of prescriptions. I felt good enough this afternoon, after a 2 hour nap, that I strapped on a mask (to guard against all the dust and pollen) and managed to get the backyard mowed FINALLY.
So, it's back to work tomorrow, if the world doesn't come to an end tonight, and hopefully I won't be soaking through 3 hankies and a WHOLE LOT of tissue.
