AN EARLY THANKSGIVING

Oops!  Second post in a day.  The first post was completed yesterday.  I will mark it up to old timer's disease.  

Every day last week, we had an appointment at each of John's physicians.  Every appointment was a good one with really pleasing results from CAT scans, blood tests, etc.  Dr. Lykens, John's pulmonologist, was glowing as he reviewed the CAT scan with us.  We were floating on cloud nine.

Sunday found us at Megan and Adam's home for an early Thanksgiving.  Megan is our older granddaughter and has presented us with a great granddaughter, Harper.  Harper is riding on her horse right behind Jackson, our other great grandson.  Jackson is the son of our grandson, Zach (right behind the horse.)  Adam is in the chair.  

Jackson is three months older than Harper and they are best buddies.  It is so much fun to watch them together.  We are looking forward to welcoming our third great-grand in January.  Megan is due January third and has begged us to stay.  We just cannot do that.   

While at our Thanksgiving celebration, I noticed that John was not feeling well and was coughing.  After experiencing his respiratory failure in 2012, my warning alarm went off.   That's what happens when we are back in Indiana, it is freezing cold and we sit in physician's offices with tons of germs.  First thing Monday, I called his Dr. Lykens, with a report. Now,  John is now on two antibiotics and steroids as precautionary measures.

Yesterday morning, the alarm clock went off at six o'clock. Leaving John in bed, I stumble out of the bedroom to get ready to leave at seven-thirty in order to arrive at St. Richard's School in Indianapolis where grandchildren, Lucy and Ross attend.   It was Grandparent's Day.  

As we entered, we were given a program that had a drawing. Featured on the program was a Thanksgiving card created by Lucy.  

Here is Lucy with her turkey hat, sitting next to her Thanksgiving card featuring a turkey saying "I love pizza!"  

Yes, Lucy has a great sense of humor.  She loves to tease and tell funny jokes.   





Each grade level performed and it was so much fun to watch Lucy and Ross.  It was impossible to get a photo of Lucy's class performance.  

Luckily, I did get a photo of Ross and his Kindergarten class performing. There is Ross with his beautiful red hair.  

After the performances in the chapel, we went to visit each classroom. 


Ross' class had more songs to perform.   The bottom expression is one of his funny looks he loves to use to make us laugh.  

When school was dismissed, the kids left for a vacation in Florida.   

Oh lucky them!  

Right now, snow is blowing horizontally past our warm, cozy motorhome. God willing, in ten days and we are out of here! 

Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy your Thanksgiving with family and, or friends.  God bless you and your day.

  3. So glad to hear about the good doctor reports. That's always a wonderful experience to know things are good. Sorry to hear about the need for drugs. Hope that takes care of whatever it is. Great grandchildren boggles my mind. Those are mighty cute grandchildren who I know were so thrilled to have you there for Grandparents day so they could show off for you and show you off! Best wishes to John.

  4. Good that you got to have a Thanksgiving dinner with some family:) Too bad you aren't joining the family in FL, at least we don't have blowing snow just wind and very cool temps.

    Hope John is all right!

  5. Glad John got a good report and hope the meds will clear up his current blip in the road. You have some really adorable grands and great-grands. Gotta say I am partial to the little red-headed guy. Raised on of those myself and he was also full of the dickens.

  7. What a fun time...well, minus the cold and snow! Hope John is feeling better.
    The picture of Ross brings back sweet memories as I was a Kindergarten teacher for 30 years...as a grandparent, I always loved grandparents day and watching the children "perform".

    Stay warm. ..Happy Thanksgiving!

    1. I wish it were just a head cold, but if he catches anything, it goes to his lungs. This put a damper on the test results, but we are trusting that this will not linger to cause problems. Where to you plan to be traveling this winter?
