Merry Christmas to All

Just thought I'd write and tell you all the news about Sonny's trip to Cleveland Clinic. First when we got there, we found that we had a Christian doctor, one who had a testimony and was not afraid to give it. Praise the Lord!! Anyway, he went through all of Sonny's history and records then gave his opinion. He feels that Sonny should not have had the 4 stints placed in February of this year but would rather have seen him have a bypass/graft done. He says the stints are very large and just about cover the entire artery. However, they are open and have healed well and for the moment he feels that they are okay. There is one small artery at the back of the heart that needs to be opened, but he thinks it is okay for now. We both feel some relief because he gave us hope for the future that if anymore needs to be done, it can be done. The others told us nothing more could be done for his condition. Anyhow, we praise the Lord for the good news.

We are ready for Christmas, and will be coming to Michigan on Christmas day. Can't wait to get there. Hope to be able to see some of our friends. Judy

Hi Everybody,
Just a note to let you all know that Sonny goes to Cleveland Clinic for a check up on Thursday. We will be leaving in the morning to go up and staying the night. We hope that they will be able to help him with some of his medicines, because he is on so many and has had so many reactions to them. Please remember us in prayer.
Wanted to share a couple of pictures of my tree and village here at home. My girls got me a train this summer and I put it around the tree. I think it looks beautiful.
I'll write more when we get back. Judy

A Snowy Thanksgiving
We had all the kids down for Thanksgiving and we had a great time. We had a lot of snow so the kids got to play in it. It was great to have all of them down (the granddoggies too).
Here is a picture of Sonny's mom with all of our crew. We are so blessed.

Tuesday night. Nov. 4, 2008 -- Just looking through some pictures and came up with these. The church, Roscoe Rooster and Sonny and I in the fellowship hall. We seem to spend a lot of time at the church, so thought I'd share a picture with you all.
It was a nice day today so we went for a ride on the trike. It was cool, in the 60's but nice for riding. Went to vote, to Sonny's sister, Janet's,Walmart and Dollar Tree then came home. That was just about the whole day.
Not much new here except for the stolen oil from our church. The first time thieves stole around 1,000 gallons and then last week they came back for 200 more gallons. The police are trying to catch them.
The kids will be coming down for Thanksgiving and I can't wait to see them. Judy

God's Handiwork

Hi All,

Today was special for Sonny and me. It 's Monday and the day that we try to take off and do something to unwind from the busy weekends. Yesterday we had three services and were very tired. Anyway, back to today. We went on a color tour on the bikes with some couples from church. We went over into Maryland and up around Pennsylvania and back down to West Virginia. We left about 10 a.m. had a great lunch, and got home around 5 p.m. It was warm (77) and the sun was shining. It was a wonderful ride. I don't know how anyone can see the beauty of nature in the fall and not believe in God.

Sonny is feeling much better. His blood pressure is stabilizing and he has been pain free for over a week now. He still needs to take it easy (yeah right), but God has been good to us again.

Well, I just wanted to share with you all. Judy

Hello Everyone,

Just a note to bring everyone up to date here. Sonny gave us another scare with his heart yesterday. Spent the night in intensive care and we are home today again. He got up yesterday in some pain and hadn't slept well the night before. He thought maybe that his blood pressure was up so we took it. It was 188/115 so I called the doctor. They said get him in. When we got there he was in a full blown attack and they called the ambulance. He went through a cath and the doctor says the stinted artery has some small branches that are pinched off and also the bottom of the artery is shut off from former attacks, he wants to try medication for this and then maybe later there will be something (open heart) that can be done. He says that the whole rest of his heart is good, but even with the stints the other artery is bad. Also, he is puzzled by the spikes in BP that he has had since the placement of the last 4 stints. He has a total of 6 in the one artery. The pinched off branches are causing the pain and attacks. Anyway, I just want to give the Lord all the glory for His touch yesterday. So, today we are home with some new meds and Sonny is worn out from the ordeal. He wanted to take a nap with Daisy. She is his buddy. Judy

Hi Everybody,

Thought I'd update my blog and talk to you all. It's nice here in WV, warm during the day and cool at night. Sonny had a dr. appointment today and so we spent the morning in Morgantown. We came home and Sonny has been all afternoon trying to put new brakes on the Motorcycle. He's still not done. I haven't done much this afternoon. Got to get ready for service tonight. Our revival is going good, well attended each night. Daisy had us up last night after an oppossum. She always has to get all the critters. Sonny had to get up and shoot it. It was out by the chicken pen. That made her happy so she came back to bed. Well, I need to go and find something to wear to service and find something for Sonny too. Bye....

Hi Everyone,

Monday night. Just got my hair washed, a major job, so thought I'd write some tonight. It's been a busy week for us. We made a fast trip to Michigan to pick up our camper. Got home on Friday night around 4:30 and got busy around here. Saturday was our trip to Sight and Sound Theater to see In the Beginning. It was a great trip and the show was wonderful. We got home around 10:30 and were super tired. The week before had been busy with Sonny's Mom's birthday party. It was very nice and I think she got 107 cards. Today we got our new washer and dryer. I washed 2 loads of clothes. We start Revival tomorrow night. It seems to be run, run, run. Will write more later. Judy

Just an update as to what is going on here in WV. My sister, Jane and her husband, Bob were here last week and we sure had a wonderful time with them. Got to visit and spend some precious time with them. We went to Canaan Valley and rode the ski lift to the top. It was a beautiful day and we had a great time seeing the sights there in the valley. Afterwards we went to Chris and Ron's for supper and then went exploring in an old dump on their property. Lots of old bottles which made Bob happy. They left early Saturday morning and we are missing them now. Even Daisy misses Max, their dog. I guess all good things must come to an end..... Judy

Just a couple of pictures to share.
We made a fast trip to Michigan last week, 930+ miles in 3 days. We were pretty saddle sore when we arrived home on Friday night. Sunburned too, despite lots of sunscreen. We really had a great time with the kids. Didn't do much else.
Bought a camper at a garage sale which we left at Beth's house. Have to go back and pick it up in a week or two. I can't wait to get it home.
We had to be home for our all church membership meeting on Saturday night. Sonny was voted back in for another year and the church is buying us a new washer and dryer. They found out my old set is about to go. They are old, 15+(??). Looking forward to another year here at CEC. God is good.
My sister Jane and her husband, Bob are coming up on Wednesday. Sure looking forward to them coming up. More later in the week. Judy

Monday, Aug. 18
Hi All,
I just had to write and share this picture of my flowers on the back deck. I think I counted 23 blooms on the rose bush. Sonny got it for me for my birthday.
It's another beautiful day here today. We had a really busy weekend and today(Monday) is usually our day of rest so not too much going on. Just grass to mow and such. We had a Christian bike ride on Saturday with a concert (Jonathan White) following. We had a beautiful ride. It was a perfect day for that. Then yesterday we had New Destiny Treatment Center at the church for the morning service. We had lunch for all in the fellowship hall. We had a great service. Lots of food too. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Well, I need to get off here and get busy. Judy

Tuesday, Aug. 12
Just got home from WOW meeting and am tired. We had a great meeting and, of course, too much to eat.
We cleaned out another house yesterday and had a nursing home service last night. Always something going on. I am trying to get my house cleaned up for fall. Maybe I'll change the furniture around tomorrow. I just feel in the mood. Seems like fall is in the air.
Sonny went over to Fairmont to pick up a piano with some guys from church. It was given to them. Anyway, I brought a plate of food for him. He ate most of it and is now in bed. Not too much else going on. MOM

Hi all

Hi all from Daisy and Me. Not much new going on here. Went to town on the bike yesterday and I got sunburned on my face because I lost my visor on my helmet. Have to get a new one.
It's been dreary today but not much rain so we got the weed eating done. It doesn't take too long if we both do it. Sonny has a board meeting tonight at the church but I don't have to go. I think I'll sew. Daisy says Hi to all. MOM
