Baby Shower

What a week! It started off with getting a day to Me Monday. I went and got my hair done and had lunch with some very special girl friends I used to work with. They of course showered me with gifts for baby Ava since they could not make the shower. Every other day we had so many things going on with Jackson. I know I keep saying this, but I must slow down! Saturday was the shower my Mom and sister gave me. It was mostly family, a few family friends, and three great girl friends. It was more than perfect! We got so many beautiful things, got to visit, and ate way to much cake! Sunday my sister and I woke up at 5:30 and drove down to Louisiana to see my Grandma. I think I still had high hopes we would get there and she would be the same old Grandma. Her left side of her face has clearly been affected by her stroke. She has been in the hospital 4 weeks and will go home Tuesday only with 24 hour at home care. Her attitude was very down and seemed like she does not have the energy to fight. I will keep praying for God’s will. No one should be miserable and she has been fighting for so long. Tiffany and I had to drive back yesterday. So in 12 hours with 7 of them driving we had a short visit. The good thing is I don’t think Grandma realized it was that short. I am so tired (mentally, physically, and emotionally). Today is a new day though and we have Kindermusik class and shopping with my Mom and sister. Tiffany will be here until Thursday so we must shop, then I will rest J.

How fun to have a houseful of pink things... just waiting for that baby girl. :) I'm sorry to hear about your grandma, and I'm sure the trip was hard on you but I'm glad you went to see her.
