Sorry for the delay, been off line on the road.

New thread.


Judie said...

Hi Steve. Welcome back and thank you for the fresh thread.

So pleased to know that Kathryn is okay and the surgery successful.

Jo, I seem to recall a fable about a woman who tried to remove an eaglet helmet from a nest. It was not pretty for the eaglet.


Mema Jo said...

Whoo Hoo Judie You get the feather!

Steve, I really hope your trip was enjoyed and good to have you back - still have our 2 in the nest but they are doing some very high jumping.

Did you mean it was not pretty for the woman - That's what it said in the
fable I read........ lol

Mema Jo said...

Check your emails, Judie..

Lori said...

WOW, a new thread. Thank you, Steve!

Thanks for the call over Judie!

Another lazy, gray day around here. Looks like it's about to rain again, too.

JO, so sorry to hear about the killdeer nest and the children being sad. I hope nature shows them a good turn of events.

Get well quick wishes for Kathryn!

SANDI, have you heard anything on Josh's surgery?

Mema Jo said...

I saw Kay on our Momsters mail - hope she gets in here and gives us an update on her day........

Mema Jo said...

We just had a down pour - but it stopped just as quickly as it started.

Judie said...

No, Jo. The moral of my fable is: FEAR THE WOMAN! It's a Terrapin thing.

Hi Lori.

Mema Jo said...

Hurry Hurry The ship is waiting for us

Mema Jo said...

PS How do they know that they have backed up to the very edge.......

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Good evening on this beautiful new thread!

Mema Jo said...

Judie - I sent you a you tube video but it is not available. The Message
was however



Headed out for dinner......

Mema Jo said...

Whoa! I forgot! There is a guy highwire
walking over the Inner Harbor. I
wonder if Ceil went down to watch..

Kay said...

How nice to open up and find a nice new thread ! Thank you, Steve, and I too hope you had a nice trip !

I've already sent this via Momster Mail, but for those who don't go there much, will repeat here. Thinking of LYNN on this special day and lovingly dedicating this poem to her memory. Also with love to her precious Carolyn and Christie.

Eagle Poem
by Joy Harjo
To pray you open your whole self
To sky, to earth, to sun, to moon
To one whole voice that is you.
And know there is more
That you can't see, can't hear
Can't know except in moments
Steadily growing, and in languages
That aren't always sound but other
Circles of motion.
Like eagle that Sunday morning
Over Salt River. Circled in blue sky
In wind, swept our hearts clean
With sacred wings.
We see you, see ourselves and know
That we must take the utmost care
And kindness in all things.
Breathe in, knowing we are made of
All this, and breathe, knowing
We are truly blessed because we
Were born, and die soon, within a
True circle of motion,
Like eagle rounding out the morning
Inside us.
We pray that it will be done
In beauty.
In beauty.

"Eagle Poem" by Joy Harjo, from In Mad Love and War.

Beautiful Kay! ♥

How are you feeling?

Ms Bookworm said...

Good afternoon/evening, Everyone!

Have been trying to stay busy with work today. Can't stop thinking of Lynn on her Birthday. Pray that God will get Carolyn, Christie, their families, and all of us through this day. Happy Birthday, and I love you, ♥Lynn♥!!


and once more,


Glad to hear that Shirley's Kathryn is OK after surgery. Prayers for a speedy recovery!

Prayers continue for Josh and his family. Hoping to hear a good news update.

Jo, so sorry about the kildeer nest. Hope she lays more eggs!

Lolly, sorry, too, about the fallen robin's nest. Doggone it!

Chrissy, love your poem for Lynn!

Welcome back, Steve, and thanks for the new thread. Thanks, Judie, for the call over!

Have been thinking of Kay. Pray that the back brace has eased her pain!

Well, gotta get back to work. Will check back in later, after dinner.
Hope we all can make it through this day. (((GROUP HUG)))!! I love ♥us♥!!

Kay said...

Will have to back track for some posting catch up, but can see from this thread that Kathryn's surgery is over. Here's hoping she has a speedy recovery ! Hoping to hear that Josh is doing okay, too.

Love seeing Missy and Bro, busy, busy, busy and thriving !

I did get the brace yesterday, but am not to wear it until the week before surgery and then only for a few hours a day. The doc says I'd only lose muscle tone if I were to wear it now. Disappointed as I hoped it would help with the pain. I'll be wearing it during all waking hours for weeks post-surgery. Will get my pre-surgery physical tomorrow. Then expect an adrenaline flow as Eileen's family arrives Friday and we see Seth perform in "Antigone" ! Saturday the kids are going to clean my deck and outfit it for summer. I'll only be a spectator, but will love having them here !

Kay said...


Kay said...


Kay said...

LOLLY/HODA, I see another Momster meeting is on the horizon. Whoopee ! I love us, too !

MARGY, belated sympathy to you and Dwain's family as another loss is suffered.


Kay said...

JEWELS, so glad to hear Charlie will soon be rid of that troublesome gall bladder !


Kay said...

Time for dinner and settling into the evening routine. See you here again tomorrow....Love and prayers to all and thanks to you who are praying for me ! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Kay said...

Oops, almost missed out on adding my good wishes for DANAWV. A day filled with our longing for LYNN, but still a day of celebration for others---and for all of us when we remember LYNN is in Heaven and suffers no more.

JudyE said...


JudyE said...

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not're coming here to me.

JO I clicked on the ship link and its is black with looks like lights flashing in the distance it said may take awhile I waited 5 min and still black What did I miss?????:^(

stronghunter said...

Good evening,

Kathryn has had chicken soup and is snoozing in the recliner again.

Sorry about the kildeer eggs, Jo.

stronghunter said...

Lovely poem, Kay.

stronghunter said...

Our eaglets look very wet today. It is raining here. Been a grey day.

Judie said...

Jo, the video played. Fear the Turtle? Ha, I say FEAR THE WOMAN NAMED MEMA JO who is on a turtle shell mission.

The flying Wolenda (sp) was recreating a walk similar to one made by is grandfather. Bet Ceil watched up close.

Shirley, glad Kathryn has eaten and is resting. Best thing she can do right now.

Kay, I guess some of us misunderstood. Sorry the brace cannot be worn now but the reasoning makes sense. Nurse Lynn would say that. Just enjoy having family around as well as Seth's performance.

I do NOT have a feather. It is now in the secret hiding place far far away beneath the melting snow. I cannot be interrogated because I CRS.


Lynne2 said...

Here is something that will make you bluebird has 2 new babies and a third egg is cracking wide open ready to bring for a naked chick!

BB nest hatching

Lynne2 said...

the mother is clearly helping the hatching!

Hoda said...

Beautiful Poem KAY.

Stay strong about not being able to use the brace...JUDIE spoke well.

SANDI any word of JOSH???

Mema Jo said...

Just back from errands -
Who caught the whale!

The ship was in a stationary position
The cam is the Osprey and we always joked about catching the ferry This is
a cruise ship with a blinking light. It is night and pitch black.

JudyE said...

KAY loved the POEM
JO the blue bird I Saw here babies really quick

Mema Jo said...

Remember that the surgery for Josh was to be 15 hrs if I am remembering

Kathryn and the Chicken Noodle soup -
that soup is good for everything

JudyE said...

KAY Loved the POEM

LYNNE2 The blue bird got up when I went on and I sort of saw the babies

JudyE said...

I love how the hop skip and jump now across the nest

Mema Jo said...

Lynne - Loved the Bluebird Box

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Momma Bluebird is helping crack the egg!

JudyE said...

they are oh so little

JudyE said...

love how they open their mouths ok gonna go watch TV

Sandi said...

Evening all! Have been dealing with my sister, my mother, and issues surrounding THE MOVE for the past 3 hours! Geez - who woulda thought it would be so complicated!!??

Did not hear anything from Josh's mom today at school - really didn't expect to considering how long his surgery is scheduled to be. But thanks to all of you for keeping the prayers coming!

Kay, sorry that the brace can't offer you any relief pre-surgery! DARN!

Jo, what a sad life lesson for the grandkids! I know it's all part of nature, but I bet they were so broken hearted to go out to the nest today and see the eggs gone! =(

Shirley, glad that Kathryn's surgery went smoothly today and she is already sipping soup.

Anyone who has moved recently who can recommend a good moving company in the Baltimore area?

paula eagleholic said...


Happy to hear Kathryn's surgery went well.

Kay, sure hope you can make it till 6/6...enjoy the family time this weekend.

Lovely poems in honor of Lynn ♥

Sorry to hear about the killdeer eggs, Jo.

Happy to hear of Lolly's trip. Hope Lolly and Hoda can meet up!

paula eagleholic said...

Eaglet eating....other one watching.

Lolly said...

In from working outside all day. It was wonderful. We are having such beautiful weather. Love it!

Need to go warm up supper. We are having last night's leftovers.

paula eagleholic said...

Eagle Helmet! That's great, Sharon!

Glad you are feeling better Jo.

Margy, big sorry about Dwain's sister.

Costume Lady said...

I had a great doctor visit, today. This was with my primary doctor...regular visit.
I have been having pretty fierce pain in my hip and have been so full of anxiety, thinking, HIP REPLACEMENT! Doctor said it is from walking with the cane for such a long time, that now, without the cane and still a little off-balance from the surgery, that a tendon has been pulled from the hip to the knee (non-surgical leg). I am to continue my exercises for balance and the hip will get well on it's own! HOORAY!

Capt. Gene took GG to get her Do done and she said she was proud to show off her handsome son-in-law;)
(we had conflicting appointments).
She says she is having NO pain today. Doctor says she may feel no pain for a few days, but it will take the 3rd round of treatment to keep the pain away for a year or more. DANA knows of these for her for a year or so. I'm so anxious to see if this works for GG!


wvgal_dana said...

Thsnks Steve we needed this new thread.

Beautiful Poem thank you Kay.

Geez, it's been raining here for hours. I can't even remember the last time I saw sunshine.

Going to watch Criminal Minds


Robyn said...

Jo, I didn't catch what happened to your eggs but I read something about a turtle. Sorry you lost them :(

I just want to say though I miss Lynn, I feel she is a Guardian Angel, Lynn always took time out of her day even when she was feeling sick and always asked about Tori. I will never forget that.

I need a favor from everyone if possible,

Gina Kosla a new friend of Tori's had a bi-lateral lung transplant March 10, 2011 and was doing well until this past week or so. Gina is in chronic rejection and will undergo a very intense treatment plan and she also has an infection in her lung.

Her mom Reyna mentioned Gina loves to read posts on her Caring Bridge as it gives her positive energy, would it be possible to reach out to Gina and send her positive thoughts on her Caring Bridge? Gina turned 21 March 4th and will be completing her last year of college next semester.

Tori is also saddened by the latest development but being transplant patient herself she knows the risks and that it can also happen to her, though we hope it never happens we still need to be realistic.

that is Gina's caring bridge.

Thank you and I love you all.

OH one more thing, Tori had her bronch and biop, though they saw a little irritation they are equating it to something else and not concerned about it. So far no rejection and her airways looked white and great, we will know more tomorrow when the results from the biop are in.

I want to post on CB but I will wait a few more hours until Gina is settled in, I know she will be happy for Tori.

Robyn said...

OH boy I am glad I copied and pasted that sucker, I got hit by a blogger copper grrr

JudyE said...

Ok AI watchers What did you think of Randys jacket??

JudyE said...

Great news about TORI and sad news about GINA will keep her in my thoughts

Thanks for Gina's link - I'll wait a day or two to post as Tori's friend.

No, the turtle did not eat the
killdeer eggs - but they are gone - all 4 of them. Probably a raccoon..
All is well

Judie said...

Quick goodnight as the sandperson has made a not-so-stealthy path to my door.

Wanda, good news about the cause of the pain and it will heal itself. Also happy GG got some time out with the Capt. and that she is not having pain.

Robyn, so nice to have continued good news about Tori and will say a prayer for Gina.

The sandperson will be headed out in a few. The night light is on. Restful sleep for all. Goodnight, Lynn.

Lolly said...

Cheese cake is finally in the oven. Going to be a late night as it has to bake and cool.

Robyn, prayers for Gina and continued prayers for Tori.

Mema Jo said...

Judie - I hope you may have watched Criminal Minds... It was all about serial killers - gave an overview of
their character and their thinkings.
It was actually educational....

Thanks Loretta for the Birthday wishes.

Feeling poorly about missing my Birthday partner ^j^ Lynn♥ ^j^

Lynn I know you are watching over the girls and their families. Plus the eagle group. I think of you often; many times in the day. I still have to say Happy Birthday but you don't age where you are. You are so so " h e a l t h y " there in that Heavenly Palace. LOVE YOU LADY♥

Robyn said...

Thank you all, if you go to caring bridge it is ginakosla one word.

Jewels said...

Good late evening. I am at work as you can tell with my late posting.
Charlie brought me dinner and pink and white roses! He knew I was really down today. I have been in tears many times today and one co-worker let me cry on her shoulder. I needed that, till I got a headache fro crying. I don't like these firsts... they are too hard. Rained most of the evening here.

Lolly said...

Groan..... I am so sleepy but still have to cool the cheesecake a bit longer, put on a topping, bake another 10 min. then cool some more before putting it in the refrig. I am soooo ready for bed.

Guess I will shower and be ready to plop in as soon as I can.

(((hugs))) Carolyn!! Know that this day, and this week is a real tough one. Hang in there!

Sweet that Charlie brought you flowers.♥

Night all! SED!!!!

Hoda said...

How sweet of CHARLIE CAROLYN...Proud of you that you made it through the day and are at work...Your Mother's daughter for sure.

Costume Lady said...

Jo, I am in need of beauty sleep, also. I was caught in the rain several times yesterday and twice today...haven't had time to revive my DO. Don't think sleep will help the hair, but I can't see it if I am asleep;)

How sweet of Charlie to bring you flowers, CAROLYN and I hope your day was not filled with saddness all day. The flowers had to bring you a did me:)

Yes, JUDIE, I am relieved to know my hip doesn't need replacing, at least not this year:) I was really sweating bullets...couldn't handle another surgery so soon:(

LOLLY, Gene and I went out to dinner this evening (too many appointments-no time to cook) and I had a small piece of CHEESECAKE. I'll bet yours is 10 times better, in fact, I know it is. I've had your cheesecake!




Ms Bookworm said...

Good Evening, Everyone,

JudyE, thanks for posting the beautiful poem!
Kay, thanks for yours, too!

Shirley, glad that Kathryn is resting and doing well. Good old chicken soup--perfect!

Kay, didn't realize the brace would affect your muscle tone. Makes perfect sense, though. Saying prayers about your pre-surgery physical tomorrow. Enjoy that visit by family!

Lolly & Hoda, sure hope you can manage a Momster meeting!

Lynne2, thanks for the good news about the bluebirds! Sorry for so much rain there.

Sandi, prayers continue about THE MOVE. Hope things get less complicated!

Wanda, glad you had a great doctor visit! So glad that GG had no pain today, AND got her do did! Prayers that Round 3 will work perfectly for her!

Robyn, prayers continue for Tori, and I've added Gina Kosla to my prayer list. Prayers for her mom Reyna, too.

Ms Bookworm said...

Carolyn, sending lots of (((HUGS)))
to you and Christie. That was nice of Charlie to bring you dinner and roses! Sorry you've been in tears at times today, but that's certainly to be expected. I think we've all shed some tears today. It's worse for you to hold it all inside, though. Gotta say, I hate these firsts, too. Love & hugs to you, to Christie, and to your whole family.

Well, think I'll call it a night.
Feeling pretty tired, and ready for a shower and our comfy bed!

Have said prayers for everyone, for so many situations. The porch light is on. Both security systems are enabled. Pray that we all have sweet eagle dreams tonight.

God bless, and goodnight. Goodnight to ♥♥Lynn♥♥! Love you!
and I love ♥us♥!

Hoda said...




Jewels said...

Momma IV, the flowers did bring a smile to my face!! I will take a pic and post later.

For Tori, I do hope you were able to eat after your tests and your tests come back all normal! Praying for your friend Gina!

Kay the poem was very beautiful!

Lolly, that cheesecake sounds yummy!

Hoda, Mom always said I was strong. I didn't need this to happen to tell me so...

Momma III, hope tummy woes are all over!!

Momma II, my thoughts and prayers are with you!

Sandi, hope Josh surgery went well..let us know how he does the next few days/weeks.

Shar and Sissy, still thinking of you two as well, knowing that May 9th was not such a great day for you all either.

Love, prayer to all!!

Hoda said...

I hear you CAROLYN and I agree.

Sandi said...

Morning Lori, Jewels, and Hoda! I guess DanaMo's mornings have been too busy to get onto the blog in the early AM.

Janet said...

Good Thursday morning to one and to all. Wednesday was a good day, but is now a memory. Had fun with the grandkids....workign in the yard. Just nice day off stuff.

Olivia's spring conference went well. Her first TCAP (major end of year testing) result came back as great. 6 ! The top score !
Only 3 students in fifth grade got a 6 on the writing exam and she was one of them!!! :)

My oldest daughter has an ultrasound scheduled for today to check the postion of the fetus and the heartbeat. This is to reassure her mroe than anything.

Not a lot else new. Back to Massge Envy today.

I am about finished reading my latest book: To Kill A Mockingbird. It was not required reading in school (way back when) and even so I may not have appreciated it as much as I do now . What a wonderful book. SO well written. I have been to the local bookstore and bought another stack of books to read, so I won't run out any time soon.

Everyone, have a fabulous day. Hugs and smiles to all. :D

glo said...

Good morning everyone. Gorgeous weather this week. Tomorrow is Dexter's Bday Today we are off to Petco to get his present. He always knows when he is at Petco. For now off to coffee and dogtreats. I hope everyone has a great day.

WVJerry said...

Good morning to anyone here. Just want to catch up some. Worked 18 days in 3 weeks and about 160 hours...back to regular schedule this week. Tried to watch the cam some but it kept cycling off-and-on. Seems to be OK now. Looks like the youngsters will be getting ready to fly soon. They've really changed in the short time I've followed the cam. I just finally made a small donation in Lynn's Honor to the Reach Out and Rescue Group. As of today, I should be able to attend the Memorial Service. Can someone refresh me on the church location...I know Charles Town and Washington Street but not exact location. Also, Mema - I will look for you and thanks again for the e-mail you sent me. Take care all.

paula eagleholic said...

The address looks to be 220 East Washington St in Charles Town

WVJerry said...

Thanks Paula.

Judie said...

Good morning.

Plan A: take Audrey and Grace for their post-surgery checkup and required shots.

Plan B: try to make them like us again.

Plan C: take a panda nap to recover.

Have a good morning everyone.

JudyE said...

Good Morning Eagle buds Picked up Jordyn and asked her what she wanted to do today

JudyE said...

and her reply was to GO HOME I asked her don't you want to go to the park or see the birds and the seabird sanctuary like I had planned but no she wanted to go home Angie said she got up at 6 so maybe she is tired already so we are home She is watching ToyStory now and I got the dishs and kitchen done so thats one good thing about it staying home

JudyE said...

I let my atty know that they said my paper work was ok in my files with WC and I would no longer require his services HE SOUND sort of DISAPPOINTED I think he wanted to take on Walmart but he told me not to loose his # for future

JudyE said...


Lynne2 said...

Good Morning all, and a GORGEOUS one it is here in these parts! SOOOO nice to see the sun after so many days of rain and clouds and dampness. Amazing how walking in the sun can lift the spirits!

magpie said...

Good Morning Eagple Pals...
Ditto that, Lynne2

God to "see everyone" that I can here....and am going to to backwards and pick up a little more joy along the way

Hoping to find that everyone is okey-dokey....

Saw Carolyn's early morning post, how touching and tender, Charlie bringing dinner and flowers ♥☺

Nest is Awesome, Shep and his progeny...looking good !

magpie said...

oh yes "God to see everyone"
you know what I mean..

GOOD to see everyone...xo

Best Wishes to Every One, for a good day.
Shame when work gets in the middle of playtime...!!

Lynne2 said...

JANET, congrats to Olivia and prayers that the ultrasound for you daughter will show everything to be just fine!

JERRY, so glad you crazy schedule is over! BTW...Steve's friend Dave took him and another friend to Western MD for camping and fishing trip last weekend as a bonus for helping him out with major work help at his place. Anyway, they went fishing at Deep Creek and caught lots of Walleyes and had Walleye Campfire Style for dinner 2 nights!

JudyE, I guess sometimes a girl just wants to stay put an relax once in a while...guess you'll get plenty done today at home!

JUDIE, LOL!! I'm sure Audrey and Grace will LOVE you again, no worries! Hope the checkups are good!

Lynne2 said...

According to the Monarch Journey North Map, Monarchs are beginning to show up in these parts!!

wvgal_dana said...

Good Morning to All

Judie sounds like you have your day planned.

Glo pre-Happy Birthday Dex :)

JudyE sounds like you were able to get some things done around the house. Maybe Jordyn will want to go out later on.

Janet Olivia is really making the grade. Chelsa good luck on the ultrasound..keeping her in prayers.

wvgal_dana said...

Lynne2 How does Steve like his job?

Lynne2 said...

oh, I called the park ranger office at our favorite campground. Yes, budget cuts are the reason for the trash/water stuff. They considered closing the park altogether!! She said that the water pump had to be shut down because the cost was over $10000 last year to's got a purification system. The pump sits in an open area right at a local through road at the edge of the park. They did some investigation, and discovered that local residents and farmers were coming to fill jugs and up to livestock sizes tanks with their water! What a shame that some have to ruin things for others. UGH.

Anyway, she said campers in our area can bring the trash to the next campground over, and also get water there as well. It's only a mile or so up the road, so not so bad after all!

Lynne2 said...

He likes it Dana. Yesterday was his first day driving solo. He picks up and delivers pets in the suburbs in and around DC, so he is still learning the area, but so far he hasn't gotten lost!

magpie said...

oh my
the entire Royal Family
at the Royal Sycamore

wvgal_dana said...

Great to hear Lynne2 :)

wvgal_dana said...

Dad at the Minnesota Eagle Nest has a "black spot on his head".

Lynne2 said...

There is an egg at the Turkey Vulture nest!


Lynne2 said...

All 5 BB eggs are now babies

Second egg at Loon nest...some are thinking they see a crack. MTBR

magpie said...

oh wow
did you see
stretch those wings like a big sail
and a big wind comes along
okay I am breathing now

stronghunter said...

Good morning,

Breezy at the nest. Our eaglets are side-by-side.

Kathryn is zonked out in the recliner. She is okay, but pretty sore. Still on medication.

She got comfy in bed last night and dropped her remote with the TV on. She did not want to try to sleep with it on, so she texted Will, who was in the basement and he came up and got the remote for her. Pretty resourceful. She is not yet ready to pick up something from the floor.

magpie said...

couple of windy days
we are all going to go into heart failure

magpie said...

Smart gal, Shirley...
hoping for good rest and complete recovery for Kathryn

wvgal_dana said...

They are saying Lynne2 that she laid the Black Vulture egg at 10:32am Central time. That she was in labor 6 1/2 hours???? What it said on the chat. The person was watching it.

Lynne2 said...

I would be most pleased if the baby on our nest edge would step down. It's FACING the wind and that makes me nervous.

Good move on Kathryn's part! You know, I FB'd her last night....I think there is a negative psychological phenom that occurs when you go home from the hospital the day of major surgery. It leads you to believe that you SHOULD be feeling better than you do, because you are home!

Lynne2 said...

oh JOY! Baby off ledge and back in bowl with sibling, beaking.

Lynne2 said...

Turkey at Snowman cam!

Lolly said...

Good Morning! Wow, it certainly is windy at the nest. Hang on peaglets!!

Another beautiful day in store for us, but tomorrow chance of rain. Bring it on! Jack is moaning over the fact that the cheesecake is leaving the house. Geesh...he will get some! LOL Think I gained weight just baking it. Well, I did nibble on the pralines. LOL

Wish I was close enough to attend the memorial for Lynn. It is still so hard to get a grasp on the fact that she is gone.

Thinking of Kay and hoping she is hanging in there!! Kay, hoping you do find moments of comfort and no pain.

Lynne2 said...

oh dear, I'm sitting here watching wildlife like I have no place to be....need to hurry and get ready for work!

Have a good day everyone, I'll check in if I can!

Lolly said...

LOL I was thinking, Lynne, that you must not be going in to work today.

T-Bird said...

Good morning my eagle peeps.

Mema Jo said...

It is a windy one out there today and it has chilled down.
Lynne - Thanks so much for the Cam Review! I hope the loon egg hasn't cracked.

All meds down the hatch and inhalers finished - Took an allergy pill this morning.

Missy and Bro are hunkered down side by side.

Hoping we get a report on Josh
Gong to Gina's Caring Bridge

Good on Charlie taking care of you with dinner and flowers - I think I'll like him! Anxious to see Jess and Jen Saturday. And I'll also get to meet Shannon. It will be such a sad time but hopefully Love will be felt by all.

I do miss Lynn - every day so far since she left us..♥

Yes, Lynne, I think you are right about the psychological effect of coming home so soon after surgery. We were a little surprised at how quickly they sent her home. She was still complaining about being in pain and was pretty uncomfortable.

In one respect, it is nice to be home, but you are away from those who can help if something is not quite right. There is bound to be pain when you have an organ removed.

Her doctor is big on having you up and about to prevent clots. He was a partner of the doctor who did my mastectomy back in '95 and I had met him then. I had to sit in a chair or wear those leg inflatable things to keep him happy.

Hunter has a baseball game today. We haven't decided if Kathryn will go. She might go and sit in the car. No driving for her yet. She's still on pain medication.

baseball games! ♥

Finally heard news about Josh. Surgery was successful. Lasted longer than the docs anticipated 9from 7:30am til just after midnight last night) b/c something was "nicked" that resulted in some spinal fluid leaking. The docs were able to repair the leak but he will have to stay in ICU and lay perfectly flat for an additional day, so all day today and then again tomorrow. He will be in the hospital for at least a week. But he was able to wiggle his toes and move his legs when he came out of the anesthesia, so no paralysis.

Thanks for keeping the prayers and positive energy coming!

Shirley, happy to hear that Kathryn is doing OK today.

I emailed Carolyn last week to explain why I will not be at Lynn's memorial service on Saturday. I HAVE to be with my mom, helping her with this move. I'm sorry not to be able to attend, but I sure will be thinking about Lynn, Carolyn, Christie, and all who are able to be there.

Mema Jo said...

Sandi - Hopefully Josh will continue doing well. Prayers for that young man and his future.

Don't hurt your back helping the movers! Not even 2 boxes! I meant to
mention Von Paris Moving Company in the Baltimore are - don't know who you were able to get. Are you or the company doing all the packing?
Have the bathrooms been placed on hold or are they finished.

We certainly will feel you presence Saturday.

Coo here today, Tori is covered in her snuggly and I am trying to close the window but the cat refuses to leave.

I would like to say thank you to all for your prayers, well wishes and positive thoughts for Gina, it really means a lot to Tori and I. I was brought to tears reading your comments to Gina. She is a sweet girl, very outgoing and a real trooper with all she has been going thru the past few weeks.

Prayers and speedy recovery's for Josh, Kathryn and all who need strength today
