Kimbosue's Blog has MOOOOOVED!

**As of November 9, 2009, please find me at my new home below.**

Some posts are pw protected, so for the super secret decoder pen....ahem... code, please email me at kimbosue2 AT hotmail DOT com.

This blog will remain open. The link is still tied to lots of IF blogs, groups, and websites. I hope someone can read through my journey and find hope and strength and know that there is a light at the end of the IF tunnel. Prayer is the key! I love all my IF girlies I met along the way, and I hope to keep your friendships going forward during this next chapter of Mommyhood. I hope to see you there!

Grandma Update

The sister just called with good news. Grandma woke up this morning - as in fully awake with both eyes open. They moved her into her chair and into the dining room to see everyone. She had some water, vanilla milkshake, mashed potatoes and green beans! The first food she's had since breakfast Friday morning! Her eyes are open and she's talking too! However, they now feel that it was an actual stroke versus TIA because the right side of her face is now paralyzed. She is back to her smiling self - albeit from the left side only though.

I am so happy and glad that she's doing better now. I was VERY scared that something was going to happen to her this close to my due date. I know that sounds terrible and selfish of me, but after Grandpa passed away on our 1 year anniversary, that date forever makes me sad. Every year on October 15th, we go to the cemetary on the way to our annivesary dinner. I didn't want to have my baby's birthday be the same day that Grandma passed away. Plus I REALLY want her to be able to meet her first great-grandbaby. She tears up everytime we tell her about it.

**Please don't hate me or criticize me for what I said***

8 nice things to say...:

Your feelings are so understandable that you want Peanut's arrival to be associated with Nothing But JOY, JOY, JOY!!
I'm so glad your Grandma is doing better. Thanks for the update.

Oh my goodness! Why would ANYONE hate you or criticize you for YOUR feelings?! If anyone does, you send em my way and I'll take care of them! You have every right to these feelings. You're a wonderful person who wants the best for her grandma AND her baby! You're doing JUST fine!
*HUGS*

I can totally understand why you'd not want another happy day tainted by saddness! You didn't say anything that should be criticized.

I am glad your grandmother is doing better. It is so great that she'll be able to meet her great grandchild soon!

I completely understand where you are coming from. One year my grandfather died at Thanksgiving and the next year my grandmother. Its a rough time of year for us now.

I'm so glad to hear she is doing relatively well!

No way I could hate or criticize you for feeling that way. I'm glad to hear your Grandma is doing well and I hope she recovers more of her functions as time passes.

BTW, thanks for stopping by my blog.

Glad that your grandma is doing better. Don't feel bad about feeling selfish. I agree that it's too hard to celebrate a good event when it's overshadowed by a bad one.

Hope she gets much better soon!

So glad your grandma is doing better! That would be a very sad thing, to have your anniversary on the same day as a family member's passing.
