***More 4th Of July Fun***

So, as I told y'all in my one of my other posts, yesterday (the 4th of July:) Esara, Caldirwen, Nana, Papa and I went to Papa's, brother's house for a 4th of July lunch! It was SO good. We had hamburgers, hot dogs, and all the following snacks and sides:
Oh, oh, oh the food was SO good!!! =D
Unfortunately I didn't get any other pictures y'all can see from that day, but I did today!
Nana and Papa made a [late] 4th of July lunch for us girls today and it was even better than the lunch the day before! LOL =D
This is my Nana's chihuahua, Rusty:
Now he's hiding, or, attempting to....
This is Papa's chihuahua, Missy:
{sorry about the poor picture quality. The lighting wasn't very good in the house}
A plate full of cheese!!! =D btw, I'm a cheese fanatic!! I put cheese on all of my foods! lol =D Okay, maybe not all of them....
Baked beans....
Rolls....
STEAK!....
My plate (and yes, I ate it all:)....
While Rusty took a nap....
....Nana, Esara, Narthea and I enjoyed an awesome game of spades (Caldirwen watched tv)!! Nana and Esara won the first round, Narthea and I won the second round. :)
Esara:
Narthea:
Me:
We play to 500, but I just HAD to get a picture of the second score on the board from the second round. Middle to right (count out the far left score, that's from the other round): Narthea & me, Nana & Esara....
Okay, now an update on my daddy. :)
Yesterday Nana and Papa took Esara, Caldirwen and I to go see dad on the way to UncleR's house for lunch. Since dad is in ICU we had to go back one at a time: Caldirwen, Esara, me, then Nana and Papa. The nurses would only let two people back there with dad at once. Dad was doing REALLY good! He was talking to me and all cheery! It was SO good to see him like that! You have no idea what that did for me-- seeing him like that. :) We talked for a few minutes, then I let Nana and Papa go back there to see him and mom sat with us girls. We talked to momma and "caught up" on things. It was a really good visit! Narthea went up to the Hospital later with some friends. She didn't want to go with us to the 4th of July lunch at UncleR's.
So, for those who are wondering dad is going to be moved to a different room today. It's going to be on the heart floor, because of his heart rate. It has been low, so they can't put him in the "regular" patient rooms, because he needs to be tended to quite often (and frankly, the nurses in the Hospital are not good at doing that, unless they work in ICU or the heart floor) *heavy sigh*. Last time dad was in the Hospital mom basically did everything for him. Everything but stick him with needles. Poor momma.
Dad still has a lot of swelling in the brain, and they still haven't gotten the results on the Biopsy (which was Friday, just in case you didn't hear). His symptoms are much better, though, and that makes me happy! :) The doctors are saying they think it's Tumefactive MS, but they won't really know until they get the results from the Biopsy.
Thank you all for your prayers!!
I hope you had a lovely Independence Day yesterday! :D

Hey Eldarwen, do you mind if I used the same blog design package-thingy as you? I searched for different things but that just seems to be the most beautiful. :)

Eldarwen, I told Emily about the problem viewing her blog and we're trying to fix that now. :) (Apparently some can see it and some can't. and I'm among those who can't too. :)

But I'd like to ask you: is your internet browser Internet Explorer?

Thanks,
Awel P.

Eldarwen said...

@Awel: Okay. :) My Internet browser is Internet Explorer.

samarah said...

Hey Eldarwen! I was just wondering if you had gone to see The Last Song?? I was just wondering what you thought of it :)

Love,
Samarah
