Sad and short post this morning. I got a call around 5 am that my Grandpa Adkins has passed away. He had a massive heart attack around 1 am and they couldn’t do anything to help him! This is so shocking and so sudden! He didn’t know that he had anything wrong with his heart. With the exception of a spot that he had removed from his lung a few years ago he has been a relatively healthy guy, so we are all in a bit of, well, shock right now! We are packing and getting the car ready for it’s first road trip to Bowling Green, something I was hoping to do next weekend for a baby shower, but instead we’re going now to lay my Grandpa to rest. I don’t want to do this, I am soooo not ready! But you never get a say to that do you?!?! Please keep our family in your thoughts and prayers this weekend. This is going to be very hard, but all my Granny’s kids are on their way to be at her side, which will make it a little easier (I guess!) I’m greatful today for a fairly large, close family who is ready to stand by each other and help each other through this. We have been blessed to have the time with Grandpa that we had, and I’ll cherish the memories I have of him forever!
Everything is going well in baby making land! I had a doctor’s appointment on Tuesday. My appointment was with the same doctor that delivered Jonah (the practice I’m in is huge-9 different doctors!) so I took Jonah with me to the appointment. He wasn’t thrilled to be at the doctor’s office at first- I think he thought we were there for him, but he calmed down and did really well. He got to sit up on the table with me and the doctor took his hand and showed him where the baby is at right now. Then we got to listen to the baby’s heartbeat which Jonah thought was pretty funny. It sounded like a train and that night when Steven asked Jonah if the baby had said anything Jonah said “Choo-Choo”! We laughed so hard! He’s going to be so disappointed when it’s not a train that comes out in July!!! But my blood pressure was perfect and I gained another 4 pounds (yea!) so we got the all clear until next month. I have been having daily headaches so he gave me some migraine medicine that I can take when I need to so hopefully that will help because I am sick to death of these headaches! Well, that’s about all to report right now, except that we got a new car which I’ll post picutres of when I take some and the car isn’t covered in snow! (Yes, we got more snow today! UGH!!!!)
Sorry it’s been a while since the last post. You’d think with being snowed in for so many days I’d find time to write, but I tend to find other things that are screaming for my attention like, oh, laundry! (Have I ever mentioned how much I hate doing laundry!?!? Well, I do!) Then on top of everything else I came down with a cold that I just wasn’t able to shake. Every time I thought I was getting better I’d start feeling poopy again!
