So this black cat stalks me at The Big House now, an outside cat, so I figure someone in the Thanksgiving crowd there must have been putting food out...I can't start something I can't finish so have to let her fen for herself...I hope that does not sound too cruel, but it wouldn't really be too fair otherwise either....:(She looks like a manx, her tail is very short and cropped-like

Bird inventory: Dark-eyed juncos, mourning doves, chickadees, wrens, cardinals, white-throated sparrows, titmice, song sparrows, goldfinches, house sparrows, chipmunks (don't say it, I know) but still no partridges in a pear tree.
i forgot to click one email box
I forgot to add 2: White-breasted nuthatch and red-breasted nuthatch.
Well, now. I'm chimeing in just in time to get very good news it seems ! So happy to hear about baby Isaac's complete esophagus, Michael's having parents visit today and STEVE's report on the eagles as he gave us a nice new thread ! There is no way I can catch up on all I missed last week, but those things mentioned thrill me to pieces ! Hallelujah !Had a truly wonderful four days with Malcolm and "knock on wood" am feeling better this week than I have in a very long time. Still have to take the pain killers, but am cutting down and hopeful. I'm considering the adoption of a dog with Julie's encouragement. She can see how much good Mal does me. I have my eye on a shelter dog whose family had to leave town without him. A Jack Russell, he's 7 years old and may be just the right temperament to get along with an old lady. At his age he's not a prime candidate for quick adoption. Much to consider and I keep talking myself in and out of it on an hourly basis ! Won't be ready to decide til' Friday as I have several appts. and Seth's school play to get to in the next two days. Don't want to leave a new resident alone right off the bat. Wish me luck in making the right decision !Love and prayers for all ! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
Much to be considered before getting a dog, but if Julie is there to back you up with dog sitting when needed...go for it! A companion is great! So glad you are having a better week! Love you!Great news about the eagles perching last night. In my mind I can picture it!!♥Fantastic news about Isaac!!! Looking forward to pictures of him as he improves!!!
Had AOL in the background all day to hear those Caring Bridge chimes! Geat to know surgery is over! What a special boy!!!Can't wait to see that Isaac grin!It is cold, wet, and nasty here!I called the Heat/AC man & left a message that 69 ° was just too cool for me. Been wearing jackets inside.Guess I'll go home and fiddle with Blogger. Wonder if there's a way I could dwnld all of 2008 onto a disc???I hate to delete stuff. Oh Well.BBL ☺

sad news on facebook about one of Decorah eaglesEagleholicsRaptor Resource Project~ D14 Announcement ~We are sorry to announce that Bob Anderson found D14 dead yesterday near Rockford, Iowa. D14, a 2012 hatch year bald eagle from Decorah, Iowa, was electrocuted after landing or trying to land on a power pole. Bob immediately notified the utility company. D14's body will be sent to the National Eagle Repository, where his feathers and other parts will be distributed for use in Native American religious ceremonies. Bob and Brett Mandernack did a close examination of D14's body. He was healthy and butterball fat. There were no signs of wear from the transmitter or backpack.How common is electrocution? A federal study done in the 1990s identified impact injuries, poisoning, gunshot, and electrocution as the top four sources of bald eagle mortality. We haven't seen it in Decorah until this year, but D14's transmitter was the only reason we were able to follow him after he left the nest. New poles commonly have bird safety devices since bird electrocutions are not only tragic, but can cause fires and power supply disruptions. However, many old poles remain and safety devices don't always work. It's been known since the 1920s that power lines and poles can present a danger to birds. As Bald eagle (and presumably other large bird) populations expand, more electrocutions may happen.D12, a sibling of D14, was electrocuted earlier this year. A group calling themselves The Memorial for D12 Facebook Group (aka The Raptor Nation) responded by working with Alliant Energy, Puget Sound Energy, Decorah High School, and Decorah Building Supply to develop and fit bird-safe perches for the hatchery. I have a blog post and links about that here: http://raptorresource.blogspot.com/2012/11/bird-safe-power-poles.html.If you'd like to initiate a perch project in your area, please talk with your local power company. The following links provide wonderful sources of information:Avian Power Line Interaction Committee: http://www.aplic.org/D12 Memorial Group story: http://raptorresource.blogspot.com/2012/11/bird-safe-power-poles.htmlAvian Protection Devices: http://www.srpnet.com/environment/aviandiagram.aspxD12 Perches: http://www.flickr.com/photos/68092929@N03/8203641600/All raptors - all wild animals - face myriad dangers in their lives. It is easy to forget that watching and tracking them doesn't protect them. We'll miss following D14.
wow .... sad news about D14. i never thought about an eagle or any other bird being electrocuted....guess just because i've always seen birds sitting on wires all of my life...btw, JUDYE, love your avatar. that is a super pix! :)
Good Evening! Thanks for the fresh new thread and especially the eagle sighting report. The cam news is getting to be more realistic as the days pass. The afternoon was spent down at Kernan with Michael. He was napping as we entered - had a good work out with PT and then lunch. He needs rest in order to heal. We got to observe his speech therapy session. He did very well with the tasks at hand. He is independent in so many ways - he remembers about the helmet being worn and he doesn't have a sitter in the room anymore. The progress these past months has been remarkable - or better yet - just a Miracle ♥
Wow, Jo, so happy for Michael and you with his progress!!! Prayers that it continues!!Spent the day doing a little straightening, organizing and shopping on line. Then I baked! Did a little Christmas baking. Made Holiday Lizzies or fruit cake cookies. They are Jack's favorite and they need a little time to get "ripe". LOL They never dry out as Jack keeps adding booze. Oh, boy!!
Wonderful news for Isaac and his family!Great news, Dana for your dadKay - you need a dog! ♥Sandi - how is your mom doing2 shows tonight - Terrific TuesdayI'll be returning later... ♥
I like that...to quote Jo, "Kay, you need a dog!" Mema Jo has spoken!!Chili on the stove...off to make cornbread.
Just talked to Mom - she and Lisa got to the hotel across the street from the Cleveland Clinic around 6pm. Flight was uneventful. Lisa and I reviewed questions to ask the surgeon, esp. is there any way she can put a rush on Mom's stent so she doesn't have to wait so long for the surgery. Wondering if the doc will accept a bribe to move Mom up on the surgery list?? =)Mom sees the surgeon at 9am and then has her CT scan at 1pm. Return trip home isn't til Thursday morning.Dana, great news about your dad responding so well to the chemo! Not so great news about Adam's broken bone!OK, I'm signing off to watch some TV. See y'all in the AM!
Just popping in to say hello and offer up prayers for all of the medical "stuff" going on this upcoming week....Jo, Sandi's mom, Dana's dad, baby Isaac...and for Michael and his LAST WEEK at Kernan!Yes, that was the post I made last night and never hit the button. Hello, my name is Lynne and my favorite color is CLEAR.
So, good news abounds today... SO grateful for Isaac's successful surgery and continued prayers for a quick recovery!YAY KAY IS HAVING GOOD DAYS!!! Kay, I think a dog is a great idea but I must caution you on the JRT. Even well into senior years, they are extremely engergetic and require a LOT of activity. Think carefully on that....there are other smaller breeds that might be better for you. JMHO...Great news on your dad, Dana!And EAGLES!!! and waiting on equipment must mean it's been ordered!Janet, very cool that Tom is going to Yoga with you!Oh Lolly....can't imaging Jack going so far away for so long....Glad you had a good visit with Michael, Jo!So sad about Decorah's D14
Kay, Lynne makes a good point about Jack Russells. Bandit is close to 15 and, even though he's almost blind, almost deaf, and has dementia, he will still take off after a rabbit or a squirrel and yank the leash right out of my hand! When he stayed at the kennel for Thanksgiving, the gal said she let him out for a run in the yard and could not catch him to get him back into his kennel! He would let her get about 2 feet away from him and then take off at full speed with his tail wagging and a big grin on his face! She eventually had to throw a blanket over him and quickly hook his leash onto his collar while he couldn't see anything!
WOW that Bandit is SPUNKY!
Hurry up Fedex and UPS, we want to see our eagles!!
Sandi, glad your Mom and Sis got to Cleveland OK. Hoping the surgery is sooner rather than later!
Kay, good to see you feeling better! Hope a dog is in your future for sure!
Great news on Michael and Isaac, and DanaMo's Dad. Dana, at least you know what it wrong with Adam's ankle now!
Prayers of PRAISES for all the good news on the blog today. Much Gratitude.JO have they set up good and safe living accommodations for MICHAEL afte he leaves? Do keep us posted. I think of that and I hope it turns out good for him. He needs the care and we don't want him sliding back.A dog for KAY is a good idea however LYNNE needs to let us know what kind of a dog is a calm dog...no pulling and no barking.Glad you are a go with JACK'S posting in Turkey LOLLY. Time will go fast and you two can skype often and in spring you will be busy with the yard and you can get some help.BLESSINGS.I had a good day yet my week continues to be very busy..Tomorrow yoga, lunch, eco-society volunteering.Thursday yoga, lunch and CFUW Press releases.Friday Grans to Grans Kazuri Jewlery meeting and yoga. We are going to a neighbouring community for the meeting as one of our group always comes into town so we thought this time we would go to her place.It is a half an hour drive from Nelson, which for most is not much of a distance yet for us we think it is out of town!!!LOL!!!
Sorry about the Decorah eagle...always sad to lose one.Thank you STEVE for the news update. I think there will be one collective LOUD CHEER when the cam is all of a sudden on!!! Get some ear plugs STEVE.LOL
Really great to read upbeat updates for our folks here and their families alsoHave Sandi;s Mom and Sis on the mind, praying for good outcomes and a move-up on the surgeryEvery night this happens, the clock mysteriously races forward ! Phooey!
yes, very sad about Decorah D14, how heartbreaking for Bob Anderson and all the folks there...but, good that they could locate the eagle...Thanks JudyE for sharing that most difficult news
Good to see Lynne2 here this evening also!! And as always, with some wise words to Kay on the choice of dog...Sounds Great, Kay...that you are thinking about this, and Jo thinks it's a good idea too, so there you have it !
flat out of time...workday Wednesday after four off...Good Night, Precious Pals....Thinking of all here and out there in invisible land....I know they are with us in their hearts as they are in ours!Will look for Wanda's Soup Kitchen report in the morning Prayers for Wellness, All Around, in all our Eagle Corners... God Bless Us, Every Onexoxox
It is Pillow time! Good to see all of you here this eveningKay - so glad our Doggie Specialist has spoken! Hi Lynne!Good Night to all my friendsBlessings are coming down on us allKeep the FaithI Love Us ♥
Keeping the Faith JO.Goodnight.PRAYERS OF GRATITUDE AND PRAISE.♥
HELLO THERE...I got home from the Soup Kitchen around 7pm and rushed to my desk to see how baby Isaac came through with his surgery. No great surprise...but I was so happy with the outcome. I know he still has a ways to go with healing and therapy, but he is a tough little fighter and with prayer, all things are possible!And, good news for DANA's Dad. Do hope whatever his follow-up plan is just as effective as what he has just been through.KAY, what joy it was to read that you are beginning to feel better and that you are thinking of a roommate:)Wishing Sandi's Mom could get her surgery sooner, rather than later...waiting is such agony when it comes to your, or a loved one's health!How about that MICHAEL...he is amazingand making his Momma happy and proud. Continued prayers for a full recovery for him and all others on our prayer list~Soup Kitchen had 45 guests, which was a good turn out for such a cold, rainy evening. Many, many bags of goodies went out of the Closet & Boutique:)Our Menu:MINESTRONE SOUPCHEESE RAVIOLI/RICH CREAM SAUCECHCKEN LEGS AND BREAST SLICESCORN BREADPUMPKING MARBLE CAKEDRINKSWe got quite a few compliments on this meal, which made a lot of kitchen helpers happy, after all, this is what we work so hard for:)JUDIE'S sandman has just visited me and has cast his spell...I'm done:)Love and prayers for all♥
BTW, KAY...Schnauzers are good house dogs, in that they don't shed. I don't kno how much care they require. Our Lynne can tell you~My new avatar is of JAYDEN on his 3rd birthday a few days ago. He is growing up way too fast!
Watched DWTS tonight. It was fun to watch. Jack even sat here for a while, in front of a fire and shelling pecans. Not sure, but think he is up to 8 gallon bags of shelled pecans! Thank goodness Laurel has a freezer, too!Great to see Lynne sticking her head in here tonight! We miss you, Lynne! Sounds like she has some sound advice for you, Kay.Cold here, presently 39, but certainly no rain! It is getting desperate and it is heading up to the upper 70's this week. Not good! We need rain, not warm weather.My turn to say good night! SED!!
Good Wednesday morning my eagle friends!Jo, hoping the chest xray shows your gold markers are still right where they're supposed to be.Glo, what's the latest on your mom-in-law?Bev, do you have a count for us on money that you received to help Nicole and Chuck with expenses while they're in Boston?Lolly, how is the packing up the house going for Laurel and Joey? How long have they been in their house - bet they're feeling some stress!Kay, picturing you with a new dog in your life really makes me smile! Wish my mom would get one.Prayers for Michael, baby Isaac, Thelma's brother-in-law, Dana's dad, Glo's "Mom," and Emily.Make it a great day all!
Good morning!!Prayers for you Jo!Lolly, OMGosh good luck with the Turkey job. Kay you are getting a dog? I haven't read back yet but I see Sandi's comment! Congrats you will love having the company. Okay I better read back. Everyone make it a great day. Maybe today will be the day the equipment will arrive and we will have a new cam.Those of you who are puppy watchers but not on FB may not know but the organization in Brookeville MD Warrior Canine Connection is expecting 5-6 yellow Labrador puppies at the end of Dec. Yahoo!! More puppy petting for me. Missing the little ones after watching the ones in Boston.
BTW...thank you for all the prayers for my dad. I hope the next round of treatment will get rid of it. Had a "chat" with my brother last night. Makes me cry. He has not been here or talked on phone with my parents, but honestly I think he is just in a situation with his wife that will not allow him. At least that's what my mom says. She gives him an out. I think he just needs to be a stronger person and put his foot down, but he is not. He is letting his wife control his life by holding something over on him. Anyway I didn't mean to go down THAT path.The best news is that mom and dad are going for their passports today so they can go on a cruise this winter!! I am so glad that they have decided to do this as it is something my dad really wants to do!
Good Morning Eagle Friends!Lots of good news on this new thread! So happy to read about Baby Isaac...what a fighter...and what prayer warriors Momsters are!SANDI, hoping your Mom gets her surgery pronto - as MARGY says!Saw a couple of flurries yesterday, but not enough to make the ground white, or even a dusting. I was looking forward to just a little of the white stuff!DANAMO, Great news about your Dad! More prayers coming up!KAY, so happy to hear your pain is getting better!!! And, maybe a dog in your future - WOW! ♥Have a great day everyone! Wishing you a blessed day with lots of smiles and joy in your heart!
Good morning my eagle peeps.
Lori-I like that "prayer warriors." I hope I don't forget that one. ((hugs))
DanaMo-my mom always gave my brother an out too. I would feel like you, it was his responsibility to be there for her during her times of illness and not anyone elses. I'm like you, I don't want to get on that soap box either but sometimes you just have to get it out with some friends who don't judge you.
Good Morning Eaglebudlets Hope everyone has a excellent day in what ever they do Love the all the good news on the blog
(((BIG HUGs))) back atcha, THELMA!
good morning all. i slept in because i'm not going anywhere today.tom has to take the bus in for service when he finishes his morning run, so he won't be home until this evening. i am not comfortable with leaving olivia home alone all day, or even half of the day, so i am home with her. tomorrow she will be back to school. thankfully i have very understanding clients.hard to believe a week ago we were all prepping for thanksgiving.i have some piddly things to do today. always something. i might do some outside stuff this afternoon as it is supposed to go up to about 50 i think. yesterday was just raw, wet, and nasty out. nice to see the sun this morning.hope everyone has a great day. hugs to all!
Thinking of you JO...Great on the cruise DANA. I feel sorry for your brother because he is missing so much...karma I suppose!!??LORI what projects are you working on and when are you going to bring out your Christmas decorations?Quiet morning here. Slept really well and here it is the start of a busy day...
Make it a good day all.
Good morning - checking out our cam if any update Soon Soon SoonBeautiful day today - Aaron's birthday of 33 years - He's my guy!Planning on getting the xray to make sure gold pins have not moved! No Mega Jackpot for me last night. I'm waiting on the Powerball! So are millions of others!
Good morning all. I still have a cough that keeps on giving :-( Between Dex sick on Monday night and me coughing most of tues night I think this afternoon will be spent napping on the sofa. Sandi "Mom" has been home 9 days now. She seems to be holding her own as far as I know. I called on Sun night and will call again tonight. My kids have their travel plans in place for a 93rd Birthday party. It would indeed be awesome if we can have that celebration. I personally think if we still have her then we may have her for a while more. She has clear days and not so clear days. Times when she is hungry and times when its a struggle to get her to drink atleast some chocolate ensure.Thanks for asking. Prayers continue for all. HAGD everyone.
Good morning! Oh, boy did we sleep late. Annie was crying a lot during the night, so a loss of sleep. We usually let her out around 5:30 or 6 but it was too cold last night. Groan!!!Off to get my hair done very soon!Will be back!
stronghunter said...Good early afternoon,Am working on sending paint colors to the contractor. Trying hard not to do anything that might delay the work. Also found a coupon for the paint store and printed that out. We may want to use that to buy some extras.Wednesday, November 28, 2012 12:56:00 PM
Lots of explosions here today. I guess they are testing fireworks again.
Found a whole bunch of stinkbugs hiding in the draperies in Kathryn's bedroom. Yuck.
Draperies are in a tree in the backyard now. Think we may be buying new ones.
We will be moving Kathryn's bed tonight and inspecting things.
It's Hunter's 12th birthday! I believe he thinks he is already a teenager.
Happy Wed. Eagle Buds! Finally we see some sun, like Monday.Sandi, glad your Mom and Sis are hanging in there~~~hope repairs done ASDAP!Dana--great results showing for your Dad. A cruise would be great!Saww that Kay was feeling better. I hope that continues every day and you can get a pet!Hope Jo's appt. confirms that she is our Golden Girl!!!Blessings for Isaac and Michael. ☺ ♥
Helloand good afternoon from your McD free WIFI sitting watching the eagle cam and found out that there is two different IE for theFt Meyers cam USTREAM has the live chat and the other is the Realtor that sponser it without chat I got the uSTREm up less commericals and not as loud when the go into commerical
SHIRLEY tell him its not twelveteen LOL
I have accomplished my Xray but I won't know what is there until tomorrow's appointment with my surgeon. I hope I hope they are right where he placed themI am napping now BBL
OUT DAMN SPOT, OUT DAMN SPOT!!!!!!!!!
OUT DAMN SPOT!! OUT DAMN SPOT!! (THE FORMER POST WAS ME AND NOT T-BIRD).
Twelveteen. Love it, Judy. But Hunter would probably be insulted. He gets insulted a lot these days.
I found 14 stinkbugs hiding in two drapery tiebacks. Yikes.
Same with Joseph, Shirley...thinks he is a teenager, but he would think twelveteen funny! He is now 5' 4". It is really fun to see him grow into a teenager. He is such a neat kid. Teaching him now how to control his moods, that it is to be expected but how he handles them is important.Done did get my do done!!! (Like that sentence, Shirley?) LOLAnyway, feels good! Have now finished my shopping for Joseph, Jacob, Jack, and Ashley. Now need to really work on Laurel, Joey, and Michael. Laurel and Joey are easy, Michael is the huge problem!!!
Jo, we will be in prayer for you tomorrow with your doctor's appointment. Ready for you to get this done!OUT DAMN SPOT!!!!
Yes, I agree. How they handle the moods they experience is important.
Hunter is growing very fast right now. And his voice is changing. He actually shaved the hair off his upper lip. Told Kathryn he used Will's razor. Twelve is a bit young to be shaving.
SHIRLEY he probably heard of the old wives tale that the more you shave it will grow faster That is what my son said at his age Now he wishes he wouldn't have started shaving so early Remind him he has a life time of shaving not to rush it LOL All kids want to grow up to fast I think JMHOOH Home from work as you didn't know that Watching the Ft Meyers turn her egg
OUT DAMN SPOT we shall have no more of THEE
they just showed a commercial on how the eagles are on a comeback in Fl and they showed the cell phone tower at St Pete Details at 6 news cast Kick butt HUH

Good evening my eagle friends! There has been so much wonderful news on the blog in the past few days that I'm reluctant to bring any "not good news." First, I want to say thanks to everyone for the prayers for my mom. But there will be no surgery to repair her aneurysm. It turns out that, in her particular case, the risks involved in the surgery are great and Mom has elected to live with the aneurysm for whatever amount of time she has left - weeks, months, or years - rather than assume the risks.Mom sounds at peace with her decision, so I need to get my head and my heart to that same place.
SANDI My heart goes out to you with her decision I know that is hard My mom did the same thing with her cancer We will be keeping her close to heart and sending healing thought for her to live a long time ♥
Oh Sandi, I'm sorry that things did not turn out as planned. We will pray that you mom has much time ahead of her even with the decision not to risk the surgery.
((((Sandi)))) Prayers for the years part and peace3 for all of you.
Thanks Thelma for understanding my situation with my brother. Beautiful Moon and Jupiter out there tonight. Took a picture and posted it to facebook.
GOOD EVENING...SANDI...I have forgotten where your Mom's aneurysm is (brain, heart, tummy?) Sorry the plans have not worked out.GG has gall stones and we had her all set up (a few years ago) for the surgery and her surgeon said he was not comfortable doing surgery on a patient as frail as she is, so that was cancelled. She also, has an aneurysm in her aorta(abdomin) but that is not operable either. Then, there is the heart problems...it is so painful to see the "First love of your life" going downhill over the years. I pray every day and night that God will help me to make all the right choices for her and say all the right things when she asks me about her health and begs for another pain pill when it is not even near time:( We do have our crosses to bare and without God's help it would be near impossible to get by. Prayer gives me peace in my heart, but sometimes it takes a little longer than I would like:)
Wahooo!! We got some of our outside decorating done. Will finish up tomorrow. Wahooooo!
Wanda....been there..done that! We had decisions to make about Mother and it was hard. One day I had a doctor (not Mother's) tell me we were making the right decisions when he saw me break down.Sandi...it is a blessing that your Mother is comfortable with her decision. I can perfectly understand their decisions when they reach a certain age.
Have watched closely all day for updates on Baby Isaac. Hoping no news is good news and all are resting/recovering nicely. Time to veg by the TV. So very tired. I need this cough gone!!!
Sandi - I know you and your sister had hoped for a different decision - I am thankful your mom is at Peace with her decision - I am most thankful that your mom is the one who made the decision for herself. Peace to all of you and you just going to have to put even more extra love to that Baltimore Lady! ♥
Going to catch one show tonight and then do some more piddling around here.BBL
Bless your heart, Sandi...and your Mom's and your sister's - and all the family....(( Encircling you with Hugs ))and am with the others here in saying it is good that your Mom could be the one to decide....
Very touching post, Wanda....Your devotion to GG is very heartwarming, and you have surely so very much joy to her life...and ours too, by sharing

Evening, all.Beautiful view of the moon on the way home tonight.Sandi, I'm sorry that your Mom's surgery will not be, but glad she is at peace with her decision. It's hard for us to make that peace...
Oh Shirley, I remember those inbetween years! Happy Birthday to Hunter!LOL at your drapes in the tree. Think they'll end up floating around somewhere?And yes, I bought my ticket too!
Hmm, flying drapes? Stinkbugs riding on an airborne drapery? Look out!
While I'm thinking of it:OUT DAMN SPOT, OUT !!Best wishes, JO, on the x-ray results...
Well SANDI, Big decision yes, yet your Mom made it and I dare say I have a lot of respect and admiration for her...I would rather think I would have made the same decision. I have a DNR on my charts with the hospital and at my doctor's. I send love and Light your way and your sister's way too.JO I am glad you do not have to wait long to find the results of the x-rays. We will be with you tomorrow at the surgeon.OUT DAMN SPOT...JANET I am glad your daughter is better and that school again tomorrow...Teen agers are fun; wonderful that Josph and Hunter are almost there...good guidance makes all the difference.Yay on the Christmas shopping LOLLY. The big Christmas tree is up in town all decorated and pretty. the Lights are also going up on other trees. Very festive looking...People also have their outdoor lights on. I like it driving home at three as it is already dark and the lights are already on...pretty.
Deer CrossingThis is an unbelievable phone call. There is not much I can say besides that. I hope you non-Facebookers can get it. If not, let me know.
I did want to say that I do understand your mother's decision, Sandi, and I hope she has many happy years to benefit from it.
Thanks SHIRLEY for bringing that over I was so amazed how StOOOOOOpid she was LOL unbelievable also SANDI I can remember when your mom made the decision not to do anything and you all convinced her to go so I applaud her decision also and will be thinking of you in regards to this My heart goes out to you and your sister and bless your MOM for her strength to go forward You are from good strong blood make your momma proud we know you will

Dustin's years from 12 to 18 FLEW by...can't remember much of those lost years:) He is 6'6" and can't play a lick of basketball! Just not his thing. He likes fire engines;) Loves to go on a call with his Mom in the ambulance~Nite, again:)

Good morning Dana, Lori, and all my eagle friends! 27 degrees here this AM - coldest morning yet, but the forecast is calling for a warm up this weekend.Wanda, this is Mom's 3rd aortic aneurysm. She already had an abdominal one repaired in 1997 and a thoracic one repaired in 2007. This one is above one and below the other so between her abdomen and where her heart is.Hoping for more good news today from Jo and from Dana about her Dad!Wonderful news on Isaac's latest CaringBridge!!Prayers continue for all the needs on the blog. Make it a great day all! We have 2 teachers on our hallway out today so I'm expecting a rough day with 2 subs in classrooms. The kids will be on their very best behavior (not)!!
good morning to all.SANDI: your mom's decision is a tough one, for everyone involved. it is hard to honor those decisions.....judy is right, that is what our mom did. and we honored that decision. not that it was easy, but again, ditto what she said; holding you both close in heart and thought....happy birthday to HUNTER. woke up prior to the 5:30 alarm....ready to get to it today! it is beautiful out, 28, bright full moon, the air smells wonderful! hope everyone has a great day today! looks like its gonna be beautiful around here!!! :)hugs!
Good frosty morning my eagle peeps.
Good Morning, THELMA! Stay warm!HAPPY BIRTHDAY HUNTER!
DANAMO-I hear ya, the cam sure would be nice!
Changing the avatar to the kissing pig! LOL
Hello eagle friends. It is a cold but sunny day here in western PA. Not much of interest to the group to report from here. I didn't win the lottery either--not even one number. Oh well, my $2 helped in a tiny way to make someone's wishes come true. I read the blog every day and so happy to hear of the many answered prayers.
Good morning! Going to finish the decorating in the yard and then will start on the inside. I really need to scale down but I love all the decorations and can not decide to what to get rid of. Each year I put aside a Santa or two, but that is not enough. lolOff this morning for my mammogram. Oh joy!
Good late morning - just returned from my sit down with the surgeon - All 4 pins are exactly where they were placed. Tomorrow I will receive a call for the scheduling of my treatments. God is good - all the time.Gong to try to get some outside Christmas decorations up this afternoon.Daughter and son are going down to visit Michael. No definite placement for Michael yet.
I just have to share this! Pat Monahan is giving me 3 tickets to see Train in concert in Johnson City, TN on 12/13. I am so freaking excited!
UPDATE FROM NICOLE: Isaac is doing okay this morning. No fever and no Tylenol has been administered and his cultures all looked good :-) His chest tube is draining much better than yesterday now and his fluid index is starting to look a little more in the acceptable range. Chest x-ray this morning showed trace fluids on his left lung and some on his right lung. Lung volumes were also down but they said it may be that his ventilator settings needed increased until he gets rid of some more fluid. Please lift him up in prayer that everything will be okay and that we will get to see hs baby blues soon! We have been so blessed throughout this process...love to all!
Good afternoon eaglebudlets Not much going on here Just realized I didn't call June last nite like I have everyweek She wouldn't have answered but can't believe I forgot to call Gonna pick Jordyn up at school her10wk swimming class is overthis week Will be seeing the eaglesshe will want to go to Freedom parkthen to her house for dinner.I am thinking about tomorrowmaybe driving over to Polk Co and see if I can see all the eaglesthat were mentioned on the newsat the cell phone tower Keeping all in need today close to heart
I just talked to Nicole. She doesn't want to put alot out there on FB but Isaac had a pretty rough day yesterday. He had a fever, not big spike, but a fever. The chest tube was not draining right and he was retaining alot of fluid. He is better today but not as good as before. Please lift them up that they get over this little hurdle and he bounces back quickly. I love us!!!
Don't think I brought the news report last night of the up to 60 eagle have been seen roosting on a cell phone tower in Polk Co (Angie use to live over there) Eagles roosting on a cellphone tower in Polk Co
One thing on that report they said the eagle were choosing towers because of no natural environment left I beg to differ with him the three towers I know off have lot of trees woods lots of pine tree but the cell phone towers are so much taller that the trees I think that is the reason
Prayer for Isaac going up right now!!!Mammo went fine today!Sounds good for your visit, Jo. Now prayers for the treatments to get started! OUT DAMN SPOT!!!
I hear a train down in Johnson City, TNHow many miles you need to travel to use those tickets? Are Bev and Mattie going with you, Choo Choo ?I know that made your day! ♥
Yes, Bev and Mattie are going with me! It is 2-1/2 hours away! :)
Good late afternoon Eagle Buds !A quick scan tells me we prayer partners are doing a great job ! So happy with the Michael report and vowing to pray for Isaac non-stop til' our Good Lord answers !LYNNE2, I hear and appreciate your JRT warning ! I realize they are a high energy breed, but he was half the size of Malcolm and wouldn't have been able to drag me around ! Notice past tense. Someone else had a hold on him until 6pm last night and sure enough they picked him up. The shelter has a "mingle with the pets" open house every Sunday and Julie and I will go until we find the right dog for me. In addition to the in house dogs there are foster dogs who are available for adoption and are brought in for those visits. Most likely the dog I find will be a chihuahua mix as most of the very small dogs, both old and young seem to be. I'm also looking on line for an older Wheaton Terrier Rescue dog within about a hundred miles. Dream on..... I just need a little critter to give life more purpose and a daily reason for forging ahead through the pain.Went to Seth's school play last night and may go back tonight. It's a comedy comprised of little oddball vignettes and he has a leading role in two of them. Very funny and a great way to top off his H.S. theatrical career ! Love you all soooo much and am so looking forward to watching Belle and Shep with you again---and soon according to STEVE's good report.♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
I so hear you Kay " I just need a little critter to give life more purpose and a daily reason for forging ahead through the pain." You will be a great doggie Mom when you find the right doggie for you.Bev Thanks for the additional info on Isaac. I just knew things were not as they should be yesterday which is really not unusual post surgery. Prayers continue and they will get him straightened around.Very busy but good day here so am just now getting to the blog.
Blessings and Thank you MEMA JO. Glad of the report and glad they are not wasting any time and that they will phone you with the treatment schedule tomorrow. Please keep us posted and Out Damn Spot, Out Damn Spot.Prayers for BABY ISAACS and I hope he continues to heal and get over the fever and the fluid...Thanks for keeping us posted Bev.Well SHAR I do not know who this PAT chap is but he must like you very much if he gave you three tickets to your favourite band. Make a safe trip of it you three...I will post some pictures on FB on the weather here in Nelson. I went out to lunch and visited with friends then went for a walk to the marina and it is shut in and the clouds seem to be coming down low, we however can still see the base of the mountains.
Hoda, Pat is the lead singer for my favorite band, Train! :)
Thanks SHAR, I guess in a way he is a friend since his music makes you so happy!!!This is cool.Take pictures.

I love us!Prayers for everyone and those they loveTomorrow, Red Friday, is the last day of November - Then Advent begins!Nite ♥
Good night, everyone. Very tired here. Have been very busy. Tried to convince Hunter to take some of his stuff out to the POD to get it out of the way of the painters. Told him to take his huge Teddy bear out. Nope. He would not do it. Couldn't explain why. I got the "you would not understand" reaction that I get so often. I realized he can't have his Teddy bear out there in the cold. (Thought about suggesting that the bear might camp out. Hmm, real bears sleep in the woods. But not Teddy bears.)Of course, he would be insulted if I told him I really do understand. This is a complicated issue. He finally decided it could be in his mother's room along with his beloved little bear. This is my sophisticated middle-schooler whose voice is changing.
Will have to let Hunter know that I think the bears are just fine where there are--got to let him save face while letting him know I do understand.
Hunter is blessed with a Super Grandmother, Shirley...some day he will be just like you in so many waysxo
Holding all of you my friends in my thoughts and prayers Praying for the biggest needs and all the smaller ones also.Time for me and the pillows to meet face to faceYes, Jo said it and I'll second it: RED Friday is just around the morning corner God Bless Our Military Good Night, Precious Pals...God Bless Us, Every Onexoxox
Thanks, Margy. I hope he will one day decide Grandma is okay. Right now, not so much. Have played the face-saving game with plenty of kids.
I am touched to see the softer side of this kid who plays a plenty tough game of football.
Good Evening, Eagle Buds!!!Checking in to see what's happening. Went to Chelsea today and go tomorrow, then Park on Sat.Supposedf to have First Aid and CPR classes there. Don't know if I'll be able to participate and take care of business, too. Shouldn't be real crowded and there will be my buddy, Doris, there.Saw a "Grey fox" today, but couldn't get a pic~~~real fast. He had many colors, but chest and tail tip were not white. Maybe I'll see him again.Mema Jo, hope your Golden Spots are in the correct places so we can say Out, out,damn spot to the offender! ☺ ♥Sandi, sorry they can't really operate on your Mom. So hard to wrap your mind and feelings around that~~~prayers and support. Son of our former Chief of all Park and Planning said his Dad is in a similar situation. Has lung CA, but the surgery would probably kill him."I hear the train a-comin!!!!" Hooray for Shar and gang!Shirley, Belated B'Day Wishes for Hunter!! Sounds like a teen wannabe!Can't remember all I wanted to say, but it's getting late~~~~Good Health Prayers for ALL in need and Pleasant Feather Dreams ;>)
GOOD EVENING...For those of you who don't have facebook...there is a wonderful, short video of Isaac opening his eyes for the first time since his induced coma. To hear the joy in his Momma's voice brings tears to your eyes!Off to bed with me...Good Night, love and prayers for all♥
Got caught up on a country music show on pbs. Really enjoyed it!Heading to bed now. Prayers for Jo, Michael, little Isaac and all needs not vocalized with this fantastic group. As a wonderful person once said I LOVE US! (Choo Choo!)SED!!!!
Very touching story on Hunter and the bears SHIRLEY...You are an awesome Grandmother.Goodnight.PRAYERS♥
Good Friday morning my eagle friends!What wonderful news in little Isaac's last CaringBridge entry! Such a miracle!Shirley, so this is "get your house done" day.

(Keep your eyes on a SPLIT in a little while...don't get lost)Hope the Big Friday Work on your House Day goes well, Shirley!
good tired Friday morning. the stress from last night was enough to just make me hide under the bed! stronghunter: aren't 11,12 year olds a complete contradiction? one minute a child, one minute on the brink of adolescence.....we had a rough one with ours last night. and with the son as well.let's just say growing up isn't easy to do. *sigh*work was great. i was so happy to be at work. :) it was a super day....and then....evening and kids and stress.today chelsea goes for another ob appt. i suppose she'll be starting her weekly visits any time now. that baby girl is coming soon. poor chelsea is having morning sickness...again.....she is over being pregnant right now. well, i'm making up my mind that its gonna be a super day, even if i am really tired this morning! hugs and love, light and healing to all....keeping you close in heart and thought!
Again, no matter how long it takes we are one day closer to having our cam on.
((Hugz)) love and prayers your way.
Did you all see the moon last night. It was so beautiful. What gifts we are given, to witness such spectacular things in the universe. Does that sound cheesy? : )
JANET-that sounds like a good plan. You inspire me. I think I'll make a great day too. Although I may have to remember I can start my day over anytime. : ))
MAGPIE-a 4 planet morning, wow.
Good morning, They are working on the indoors. I think Will has disconnected the network. They are going to work in his basement space. Dogs are outdoors and not happy. One guy said he does not think they will finish today. That does not surprise me.
Funny--They will paint the door frames, but not the doors. They will apply one coat of paint only to the walls. Anya say that might not be enough. I picked Sherwin Williams paint, though. I have not had a problem covering a wall with one coat. We shall see. Do not mind so much painting doors myself. The ad for Hunter's room shows a red closet door. I like that, and can do it myself.
Sorry about typos. Using phone.
Good morning before the SplitNothing on our cam yet - I keep checkingHaircut this morning - I will feel better afterwards I'm sureGood luck today Shirley! TTUL
