HAPPY HOLIDAY and NEW YEAR
It has been quit a long time since I have had a chance to post anything. 2014 turned out to be a year of ups and downs. My Mother started out last year with some health issues that had her in the hospital twice. Both times it had to do with medication issues but all is well. Everything got sorted and she has been doing fine. We celebrated her 93rd birthday earlier this month. The biggest news is that my daughter(43) announced that she was expecting her first child and the due date was December 14. I was elated about this. I never thought this would happen because of her age. Well, her little one made a surprise entrance on September 28 via an emergency c-section. Baby Gideon weighed 3 lbs. 2 oz. and was 29 weeks along. It was such a surreal experience that we were all dazed when it happened. We have been incredibly blessed though as he was perfect from day one and began to thrive. My daughter was amazing and spent every day going to the hospital NICU nursery and spent her days giving her baby kangaroo care. He finally came home on December 18 and weighs 8 lbs. now. You can imagine how our Christmas was this year. Pure joy!!!! He is darling and my Mother was so thrilled because this is her first Great-Grandchild.
