Big 9-0!

Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers for my Grandma.  Sorry I didn't posted a follow up sooner!  She has been in heart failure for a very long time.  In fact, I'm not even sure when she was diagnosed with it.  She's a fighter and knows that her work is not done here until the Lord welcomes her home.  While she was in the hospital she was asking every nurse, doctor and house keeper if they knew Jesus.  :)

When she was in the hospital back at the beginning of September, we found out that she was in the final stages of liver failure (due to her on going heart failure).  We don't know how much longer we have with her, but I'm soaking up the time I do get.  She's doing pretty well right now at home.  And I'm ecstatic to say that my Grandma turned 90 yesterday!! 
What a blessing to see after thinking she wouldn't be here for it.

Of course we had to make a big deal about it!  My family catered in Smokestack BBQ so that she wouldn't have to go anywhere.  Little Kaylee (with her Uncle Josh) even dressed up as Princess Peach for the occasion. 

The whole family has always gotten their cakes from the same place ever since I was little.  Mmmmm....

Grandma is so blessed with so many family members that love her and would do anything for her.

I'm so lucky to be her Granddaughter.


  1. Oh, I could just eat her up. She is so cute! I'm glad to hear she is doing as well as can be and still has the joy of the Lord with her. What a great influence and special Grandma! Happy 90th! She is blessed to have such loving family around.

  2. She looks wonderful! I'm sure she was blessed to have all of her family around her on such a special day.


I'd love to hear from you!
