we need prayers...

this is Jade...
a sweet little girl...

she is now very sick...

she is in the hospital and will be there for a long time...
you can click on the name to take you to the Mayo Clinic website to read up on it...


Guillain-Barre (gee-YAH-buh-RAY) syndrome is a rare disorder in which your body's immune system attacks your nerves. Weakness and tingling in your extremities are usually the first symptoms.

These sensations can quickly spread, eventually paralyzing your whole body. In its most severe form Guillain-Barre syndrome is a medical emergency. Most people with the condition must be hospitalized to receive treatment.

The exact cause of Guillain-Barre syndrome is unknown. But it is often preceded by an infectious illness such as a respiratory infection or the stomach flu.

There's no known cure for Guillain-Barre syndrome, but several treatments can ease symptoms and reduce the duration of the illness. Most people recover from Guillain-Barre syndrome, though some may experience lingering effects from it, such as weakness, numbness or fatigue.

it can take anywhere from 6 months to 3 years to treat this...
from what the Mayo Clinic says...
she is my neighbor's granddaughter...
and she is 3 years old...
I used to babysit her daddy when he was that age...

so, if you could keep in your prayers...
put her on your lists...
and remember the family...
they are pretty scared...
it would be so appreciated...

something spooky this way rides...

I finally got something put up for halloween...

the new clown guy...
and he's riding around the yard...

but right now he's parked by the roses...
which were still blooming...
we finally had a frost last night, but not a hard one...
will have to go out and see what got hit...
no, I haven't been out there yet today...
too much to do in here...
and Craig had to be at work at 1, so we had to hurry up and get the chores done this morning...
less than 5 hours to go for DH to get home...
he was in a pretty good mood last night and wasn't so tired...
;0)
I don't like him grumpy...
hope you are having good days...
this month is flying for me...
thinking about Christmas already...
making lists and will be getting my shopping on soon...
I really don't mind November and December...
its January, February and March that get me...
once Christmas is over, we could head right back into spring for all I care...
at least if Christmas was at the end of winter, you would have time to make so many things for presents...
and then maybe we wouldn't mind being inside so much...
and think off all the dinners and parties...
but, no one asked me when they were setting up the calender...
;0)
off to ramble somewhere else!

mums the word...

finally...
after days and days and days of cloudy...

we have a sunny day...

but we have spent almost all of it inside...

doing things like this...

and this...
been working on the living room...
the room that took the hit when we started doing the painting and sorting and moving...

and here's the answer from yesterday's question...
and no one got it right...
:)
mom got snoopy for me at Christmas that year...
1978...
he was $20 and we saw him at Fisher Big Wheel...
they had just built a store on the edge of town...
and we shopped there a lot...
it was a lot like Kmart...
but on a smaller scale...
we bought clothes and shoes there...
table clothes and napkins...
purses and fun stuff...
I think I even got my winter coat there that year...
well, off to put away a pile that ended up in here...
