This and That

So, life is a little crazy this week, but its improving day by day.

My grandfather (Sammy Morgan) was diagnosed with small-cell lung cancer just after Christmas. He started Chemo last week and seemed to be doing quite well. That is, until Sunday evening, when he was rushed to the ER for some breathing issues and turns out he has pneumonia and a critically low sodium level. His cancer has caused a condition called SIADH which causes low sodium levels. Sodium is critical for normal body functioning and too little can lead to seizures, coma, brain damage or worse. He is still in ICU but his level is improving every day. He is a pretty tough guy and I know he can pull through this! Please keep him in your prayers!

So...with him in the hospital, my grandmother is by his side, meaning Morgan is without her nanny, so...luckily my dad can watch her. She's been with Pappa J all week and he's been great with her! I'm very lucky to have family around, I know!!

Changing gears....

EVERYONE is sick! I do family practice so I always see my fair share of sick visits every day; however, lately that is ALL is see! Flu, Strep, Bronchitis, Tummy Bugs, Sinus Infections and more Flu, Strep, etc!! Wash your hands people! You don't want this stuff!

Lastly, my baby girl is getting so big! She took her first steps last week and she's still only taking 2-3 at a time, but she's getting there. We'll have a walker before we know it! Yesterday morning, I told her she looked so much older. Her hair is growing and she's just starting to look less like a baby every day! She says DaDa, MaMa, Mom, Bye-Bye and Pow (I know that's a weird one, but that's what we say when she gives us a high-five and it just kind of stuck). She does patty cake all by herself and she has the most precious little wave you've ever seen. She brings us so much joy!!!!!!
