May 15-21, 2015 Snapshot Summary

May 15-21, 2015

May has been a whirlwind of activity for us. 

This week we had my in-laws visit from California. We mostly just stayed about the house and hung out together.
Quentin having a Chesapeake Dog (crabmeat, cheese and LOTS of Old Bay- see how orange it is!) at Jo Jo's. 

 We did take them to our favorite hot dog joint.

It was Quentin's 11th birthday. He is having his party at the roller rink on Saturday, but we had a small family party for him at home on his actual birthday. He has been enjoying his birthday presents.
Eddie at the model rocket launch a couple of weeks ago.
 Eddie is still in the hospital but Hope still came over for our weekly game night.
Hope just got word that they are moving Eddie from Johns Hopkins to Mt Washington sometime on Friday morning, which we are all not too happy about. It is not as good a hospital and Eddie will not have access to an XBOX, which helps to pass the endless time in the hospital.  Hope also has the added burden of the fact that she lost another son years ago to CF at that same hospital. All the memories and frustrations are attached to the hospital. Please keep up your prayers for the whole family.

We also went on a field trip to Fort McHenry in Baltimore as a whole family, which was wonderful. Can you believe that I have lived in Maryland for over fifty years and I had never got to Fort McHenry before? It was neat to go there while the War of 1812 Anniversary is still going on.

How was your week?

  1. I'm glad you have had such a lovely time with your in laws, but I am sorry to here the news about Eddie. Of course we will keep on praying.

  2. We are praying for Eddie. I used to babysit a child with CF. What a great week. What is the pipe board game you are playing?
    Blessings, Dawn

    1. It is a card game actually, called Water Works. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waterworks_%28card_game%29
      I got it from my older brother.

  3. That Chesapeake Dog sounds amazing! We don't have things like that in the Detroit area! Sounds like you had a very nice visit with your company from California. Happy birthday to Quentin. Eddie will be in my prayers!

    Have a blessed weekend,


    1. Oh, the Chesapeake Dog is amazing. I bet you have some delicious food in Detroit as well. Thank you all for your prayers.

  4. It sounds like another very fine week, except for the news about your friends - very disheartening - saying a prayer now.

  5. How did I completely miss the prayer request about Eddie last week? I don't know how, but I did. I'll be praying for him, and for God to work it all out for the hospital.

  6. Oh, and happy birthday to Quentin! I'm having a rather backwards week, so I'm not always remembering to give all of my thoughts at once.

  7. Happy birthday to Quentin! Keeping Eddie's family in my thoughts!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. It means so much.
