A Long week has passed, now for next week.

I really am pretty proud of myself,,I know it's been a week and a day since I have posted but I am still keeping up with blogging, when I have the time.  Last week was long and busy.  Monday morning I had to have my stepbrother at Hospital in Nashville by 9:30 a.m.  He had to have an arteriogram of his heart.  He had a bad heart attack 20 years ago and had to have several by passes done.  Then 4 years later, he had two more stints put in his heart.  Heart disease runs in his family.  His Mother passed away with a Massive Heart Attack when she was 40 years old. They found out Monday the two stints were partially blocked again.  So we had to go back to hospital on Friday to have them replaced.  On Wednesday, my daughter had to go to OB doctor in Nashville for a Gestational Diabetes test. She had to drink a very sweet drink and then have her blood drawn an hour later.  Next day we found out she does have Gestational Diabetes.  But it is fairly common in alot of women. She has to go tomorrow morning to see a nutrionist and then back on Wednesday for two more Doctor's appointments.  And my brother had to stay in the Hospital after the stints were put in Friday, hoping he will be able to come home today.  So I am rather sick of Doctors and Hospitals after last week.  Never have been too fond of either places.  
My daughter should be okay as long as she watches her carbs and gets some excercise.  This is a girl who has never ever liked vegetables or fruit, every since she was a baby,,a very picky eater.  But now she is going to have to make some changes because she knows if she doesn't she is risking her health and her baby's health.  She has gained ALOT of weight with this Pregnancy and I am pretty worried about how things will go.  I am glad that she is living with me and I can keep an eye on her.  She only has 10 more weeks till she is due but with this new development, she may have to have a c-section before the due date.  I will find out more next week.  So this has been my wonderful past week,,lol.  I did scan a few more pics of some of my recent art so I will post them for something a little more pleasant than Doctors and Hospitals.  I hope you had a better week than I did and hope you have a great week ahead. XOXO

Having had to bring my mom to various doctor appointments and at the hospital, I know the feeling of never wanting to see that place again! lol I do pray that your step brother is doing well now? As for your daughter, yes, Gestational Diabetes is very common amongst pregnant women and as long as she follows the doctor's orders, she and the baby should be fine.

I'm so loving all of your art work, you really are extremely talented:-) xoxo
