Today is my grandson Kobe's birthday. Here is a picture of Kobe...
This is when he was 4 years old....today he is 7. Real sad that I don't have an up-to-date photo of him. He is my youngest son's child. When he was three my son and his mother split up and I barely get a chance to see him. He lives here in town but my son lives in Las Vegas....so time goes by and I miss him. I guess I will have to make a greater effort to see him....what has held me back was that I hate to remind him (by seeing him) that his dad is so far away. The last time my son came home from Vegas he begged Kobe's mom for a visit and the answer was no! So sad.
Change of subject....
Today was my doctor's appointment to get my surgical clearance from my family doctor. Yesterday I expected a reminder call about my appointment and didn't get one...so I had that gut feeling that something was amiss. So it didn't hardly surprise me that when I got to the doctor's they had no record of my appointment! The doctor was very nice and took me anyway even though her waiting room was full. So I had my EKG and Urinalysis and tonight I need to fast so I can get my blood work and chest x-ray tomorrow. I also have to visit a cardiologist for a stress test. Before I left the doctor made me promise to come back after surgery and have some other routine tests that I haven't attended to. She also explained that they had to let one employee go from their employ and kind of thought she might have been the one who messed up my appointment.
I am nervous about the surgery. I am trying to think positive or not think about it at all too much. My stomach is all in knots when I think of it. So today I thought I am going to start a journal and document all my experience with this surgery...maybe it might help someone who is considering it....or maybe I will just use it to relieve my own stress.
What do you think about the new ruling concerning marriage?
I was shocked at first. I never thought I would see a day that this country would lower their beliefs to make this ruling. I thought our country was based on Christian principles...but we seem to be drifting far from Christianity. I am concerned that God might not continue to bless us as a country.... I am concerned that someday this won't even be a Christian nation. Here is a you tube video...tell me what you think of it.
try to have a nice day!
