Been trying 2 days now to make an entry and aohell won every time. This won't be a long entry. I am too tired. Pictures above are ones taken last week. Last week was an awful week. I slept sitting up for the entire week. If I layed down I felt as though I was choking and couldn't breathe. The coughing has slowed down alot and with the help of 5 pillows I am once again able to sleep in my bed again. For a while I thought I was either losing my mind or having a nervous breakdown and was ready to commit myself to a hospital to find out what's wrong. It felt good sleeping 5 hours instead of 1 or 2.

Dan's surgery is happening January 24th. I think he is having it done in Atlantic City. There are 2 disks which need to be fixed.

I am sorry this is a short entry. I am tired and if I don't go to bed soon I will fall asleep here in this computer chair. I'll get a longer entry made soon. I hope everyone is well.

Love ya.............Cindy


  1. Cindy, I sure hope you feel better soon, praying Dan's surgery goes ok on the 24'th, Love You Lisa XO

  2. I am glad you are able to sleep more, I hope you get back to normal soon.
    I will keep Dan in our prayers for the surgery.
    I tried for 2 days to get an entry up and never did get the picts I was wanted up.

  3. Lovely pics! Sweet little ones. :)
    Sorry you've been feeling bad, you need to see a Dr ASAP.
    That doesn't sound good, get it checked out. Feel better soon!!!
    Will say a prayer for Dan that surgery goes well & he recovers rapidly.
    Get some rest.

  4. HONEY rest as much as you can when you can. I crashed and burned last night after not sleeping for like three days. This getting older is for the birds. Sorry AOL is giving you fits. I had to make another journal for storage only and that is where I create and make my entries at then I copy and paste them to APII for everyone to read. That is the only way I can do it a little at a time without fifty alerts going out to everyone. You might think about doing that. Since you're having so many fits and loosing your thoughts.
    Take care and Hugs, Chrissie

  5. Cindy, Sorry I haven't been by in a while. I've been sick last week and DH has come down with it. Only one of the granddaughters got it but the DR said it  was a virus and she just needed ear drops  & decongestant. I'm on antibiotics. Sounds like you're really having a rough time of it! You need to get to the DR if you don't get better soon. Love all the pictures and Happy Belated Birthday to your beautiful daughter. Havfe a better week.
    Hugs, Barb
