Thanks Made ! I conveyed your message to him...I guess we will just have to wait and see xo

My grandson had to be taken to the hospital by ambulance on Wednesday.

We had a rough couple of days just as I thought I was going to get back on here and stay caught up. On Wednesday I posted about my mother, grandkids and myself going to Six Flags in the morning. We got back and were about to go for a bike ride. My 3 grandkids and myself put on our bicycle helmets took the bikes out.

My oldest grandson managed to flip his bike and the handlebars were in a straight up position and he rammed his belly into it. He came down really hard. The pain was so bad that he couldn't walk. I saw it happen and it went deep into his belly but did not cut it, just scratched up real bad. We realized he could not move and called an ambulance. They transported him to Childrens Hospital and decided to admit him after they found fluids in his intestines. He was in so much pain that they had to give him morphine. After staying overnight they got him to eat and make sure he was holding down his food. They got him moving around and he started improving. They did decided to release him Thursday with some restrictions. I was just heartbroken but so glad he is doing better now.

We had on helmets, next I am putting them in full bodied armor!

Here to lighten up the story but the night we were all at the hospital Wayne and I decided to take home our other 2 grandchildren since mom and dad were staying with my oldest grandson at the hospital. It was almost 10:30 pm at this time and we are all exhausted and I am still feeling a bit of shock from everything, my 3 year old granddaughter is in the back seat just chattering away the whole entire time. I was actually thankful for it because she was giving Wayne and I a laugh and keeping the mood a little brighter. It was a 30 minute ride and she made an announcement 5 minutes before we got home, "Okay, we all need to be real quiet". (She was the only one talking)! Ha ha! She gets to the house and the chatter starts up again to the point where we are all laying down and dozing off and she starts talking to my dog! She talked herself to sleep! She is a hoot!

Okay, Merry Thoughts everyone and have a great day!!!

Oh CAH !!! My goodness now distressing this must have been. I am so glad your grandson is okay. Your granddaughter sounds ADORABLE !!! xoxo

Then I have to go to my sister's house and help fill 2,000 easter eggs with candy for the girl scout easter egg hunt tomorrow. So hopefully it doesn't rain to much tonight because the city park floods real easy. Then again, an underwater easter egg hunt could be kind of fun it wasn't going to be in the 20's tomorrow morning. I hope everyone has a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How is your mother feeling, Made ?? I hope she is okay. What would your family there or your family here ever do without you ???? We are so grateful for all you do xoxo (((HUGS))) xo PS: We still going to the North Pole ?

I can crochet a Snuggie and you can wear bunny ears with it ... but it won't be done by Easter!

While I was home sick yesterday I was near finishing a "triple feature" afghan---and my yarn ran out less than half a row from finishing. Urgh!
