I'll Never Grow Up. Not Me.

Crazy Busy Lately!

Lindsey is feeling better but is still experiencing rapid heartbeat even with the beta blocker that was prescribed her.  She went through a battery of testing... and now is waiting for test results and an appointment with a specialist.  Her medication makes her very tired.  

When she swallowed her radioactive pill for the testing, she was not told that she would need to be away from her baby for 48 hours.  I was not prepared to take care of 
a baby for 2 days but... 

You gotta do what you gotta do...

And now Summer thinks I'm her Mama.   LOL!

~~~~~~~~~
Friday night, in honor of my never wanting to grow up 58th birthday,  we went to see the play PETER PAN.  


The grandkids were excited!


 It was Jake's first time to see a real live play
 and he was in aww...


Lindsey and I agreed.  Peter Pan was Athena's double!!  (Athena is Gary's estranged daughter from PAS)
Peter Pan looked like Athena, talked like her, acted like her, rolled her eyes like her, was short like her, made facial expressions like her, had her hair, her build, was cute as a button!

But it left me sad at the end.  All I could think of is This could be Athena.  Athena has so much talent and could have been so successful in many ways.  But instead she chose to lead a life chained to her unwell mother,  staying 14 forever.  So now I'm dreaming about her again.  I'm still sad about it but it will pass.

In other news.....

Three sisters got together yesterday for my 
Niece's baby shower in PA.  

My sister Angie, niece Kristen, Me, sister Rita,
and of course the lovely Rissi
Today was Rissi's birthday party.  
Close to 40 people packed Lindsey's small apartment.


It was supposed to be outside, but rain moved in and the party was inside instead. 

**shakes head**


It was chaotic, but we survived.


And now I'm looking forward to returning 
to work tomorrow for a rest!

I'm so glad to get some news, I tend to worry. I hope that Lindsey will find out what is going on with her and that she will recover soon. As for you, Bobbi, you may be tired, but you sure look great for 58! See, a little poetry there from me to you to help celebrate: Happy Birthday, Dear Bobbi, hope you get some rest.

And your grandkids are adorable.

Happy Birthday sweet Bobbi. You are so pretty. Praying for Lindsey to get answers to her health problems.
Love the pics of the grandbabies!

I hope Lindsey gets to feeling better. Bryan's thyroid disease has been a very stressful roller coaster. I don't wish it on anyone! So glad that she has you to lean on!
