My Grandson is Home!!

My son and DIL have moved back to their home just down the hill from us which means that my grandson is now home also. It is so nice to have them all close, my daughter and nearly SIL live just over the hill on the other side of us, so we can have lots of cookouts and swim parties at MaMaw and PaPaw's.

All my pictures are on my phone or Ipad so I will have to download them to my PC so I can post some of them. I hve no luck trying to post to here from either of them.

There has been knitting going on but no pictures taken. I am the worst at taking pictures. I always think too late about them.

Last Saturday Simmie (my grandson)talked PaPaw into opening the pool. So Sunday when he came up he wanted to swim. We told him the water was too cold yet but he kept saying it wasn't too cold for him (he just came here from Haiti this past October) and wanted to get in. Finally we told him to get his suit on and he could get in. Well, he bailed in and as soon as his feet hit the bottom they propelled him back to the top and up and out of the pool. His eyes were as large as saucers and he came out so quickly that his trunks had slid down and the "moon" was out when he came out and he admitted that it was cold. LOL Neither Dale nor I had our phones out to take video. :(

Our daughter is getting married this October 18. I am going with her Sunday to look at dresses. I am so glad. Her "feller" is a really nice guy and fits right in with this family. :) More on that later.

My finger..the saga continues...

On Sunday the 13th while at church my pastor prayed over my finger and annointed it. On Monday the 14th all the dead and disgusting skin peeled off of it. It wasn't all raw and hurting either. It was all dry and healed looking except for still being red. I thought it really looked good. People who had not seen it when it really looked bad still thought it looked bad. Sorry I don't have a pic on here and I forgot to take a pic with my PC camera. Anyway.... it continues to heal and I think we are going to have a long life together. :)

Last Saturday I went to urgent care with what we thought were flu symptons plus I had a finger that was red and a bit swollen. The doctor said my finger was an infection due to a hangnail. They gave me meds for the flue, shots for the pain and nausea and sent me home. By the time we got out of urgent care the pharmacy was closed so I wasn't able to get my antibiotic until the next morning.

Sunday when I woke my finger was even more swollen and hurting so Dale dosed me and went on to church.

Monday morning it was really hurting and I knew I had to go back to a doctor so we went and she gave me a shot and told me to soak it in warm epsom salt water and come back Wednesday, So today when I went in to see her she had done some research and feels that it is cat scratch fever, which makes much more sense than a hangnail. So I got another shot and have to watch not to break the water blisters on it and come back again Friday if it hasn't improved.

So, don't you think my finger is lovely? It is a pain, big time.
