I have been wanting to post these...it was hard to pick which ones to include! This was our week vacation to Jeff's grandparent's place on Bailey Lake. We also drove to Traverse City and met up with Vicky, Walter, Gabe, Nate, and our friends Mike and Kara (and Anna!)
Walking down to the lake.
Stopping to smell the flowers with Mama.
This was the only day I could swim! It was so cold all week!
Walking with Dada and Great Grandma Franklin.
I don't want to nap...I want to go outside!!!!
Isn't it beautiful?
It was so cold, Mama and Dada bought me a Beach Bums sweatshirt. It is sa little big...I think I will be able to wear it for a few years!
Walk with Mama in the woods.
Great Lakes Children's Museaum. Of course I liked the water the most!
I think that is supposed to be Lake Michigan?
Hey! Dada and I are on TV!
Beach Bums Game. That is Alex, Nathanael, Anna and Gabe with Suntan and Sunburn in the back!
So, last week Iwas going to try really hard to update my blog. Let's just say I was slightly inconvienced. Here's what happend:
Wednesday 8:30 pm Tammy starts to have stomach pains 9:00 pm Jeff tells Tammy she just needs to poop :) 9:30 pm Tammy thinks it is much more than that 9:35pm Tammy calls her sister Vicky and asks, "What side is your appendix on?" 9:36 pm Vicky says she is on her way to take Tammy to ER 10:15 pm Vicky picks up Tammy...Tammy not happy about having to sit in car (very uncomfortable) 10:30pm-1:15 am Tammy sits very impatiently in a wheelchair in ER while she waits for her name to get called. During this tine she is trying very hard not to 1.Cry 2.Convince the doctors that her pain level is higher than everyone elses who is waiting! 1:30 am Finally get called! Doctor seems to need to push on Tammy stomach several times, even though Tammy cried out in pain the first time he touched her right side! 2:00 am Tammy has to drink a very large glass of ocean tasting water. 2:45 am Tammy finally finishes. Has to wait 2 hours for CT scan. During this time, Tammy finally gets pain medication and becomes slightly loopy. Jeff and Mom Meyering arrive. Vicky goes home to bed. 4:30 am CT scan 4:45 Doctor says definately surgery. Appendix is very inflammed! Time becomes very blurry from here on out...Tammy gets taken into surgery around 6:00am...Tammy much more conscious around 9:00 am.
Spend Thursday in Hospital Friday - home by noon
Now - slightly sore...can't bend much...can not pick up anything weighing more than 15 pounds (including Alex) for 2 weeks. Cannot drive for 1 week. Now Tammy needs to be babysat along with Alex!
So... I am now resting ALOT and Jeff follows me around telling me "Don't do that." I should be able to get updated on my blog now....I don't do much besides watch TV and hang out on the computer!!!!
I can not believe that it has been a year since I picked up Alex from the orphanage! What an amazing year. We have so much to be thankful for today!!!!
I am so behind on my blog...I will catch up this week with some older pictures from the past month. Coming this week: my 30th b-day party, the circus, Greenfield Village, The henry ford museum, up north at Jeff's Grandparents place, Beach Bums Game in Traverse City, Great Lakes Children Museum in Traverse City, and our 1 year anniversary BBQ with Alex.
But here is a picture from our BBQ from today. The kid is drenched in pool water, apple juice and lemonade ...and then he found a mud puddle to splash in. I think he had fun!!!
