Welcome to my little corner of blogland! This is the only sane spot I can come in my crazy life! :) Here I share my sometimes funny sometimes NOT-day to day insanity I call my life, along with my sweet wooly hubby & all our boys :)

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; there is where they should be.
Now put foundations under them.

latest update :)

well we are still on for a Mon. surgery to replace his shunt. They want to put it in his chest area (the drain part) this time, scares me in event of infection going to his heart/lung area but has to be done. They did determine the infection was NOT of his shunt/or shunt fluid but was introduced at the hospy which I figured. Doesn't matter, today is 3rd day no new cultures so finish up the 7 days of abx and surg. mon. a.m. and if all goes smoothly home sometime Tues. Thank you for the prayers and for reading the updates and for the email messages sent to him etc :) His memory yesterday was increasing to a couple of hours before he'd forget (was about a 5 min. span) and this a.m. he remembered his nurses name from last night so he is improving in that area as well. love you all very much xoxo melzie
