John got to come home from the hospital yesterday. I'm calling him today. Turns out he had the swine flu too. Hope I don't get it even though I wore a mask.John's mom is back in the hospital.Stomach ulcers again. Keep Gina on your prayer list.She was scoped yesterday. I haven't heard from my son. Will have an update later. I had a single bed given to me. So if John has to come here, he'll have a bed. I'm Mamahen to everyone or anything. Rest of my family is doing well. Thanks again for prayers, they work.Blessings to all. Diane
John was moved to a regular room yesterday evening.Thanks for all your prayers. He may have to move in with me. I have to go scrounge up a single bed, rearrange my sewing room.He's in a bad relationship & that has alot to do with his diabetics problem.He's a hard worker, so he'll be a big help to me.
His Mom,Gina was back at the ER last lite.She has stomach ulcers & they are acting up again. She's worried about John.He's her only son.And Az. is so far away.
I went back to the plant sale, finish buying plants for my pink&purple memorarial garden for Ashley. Can't plant today as I'm hitting a few yard sales, then going visit John.Later, I have to go play with the grands.I'll sleep good tonite,lol. I'll post a pic next week & one of my new baby goat.She is so pretty, black with a little white.
Well, that's all from here, everyone have a blessed day, Diane

Hi folks, need prayers for my step grandson John. He's a bad diabetic, in ICU. He's 24 yrs. old,(same age as my granddau.Ashley,when she passed). His mom is in Az.Sisters scattered everywhere. I'm going to visit him today. Past two days, I've had a stomach viris.Feel better this morn.Hope all is well with ya'll, blessings.Diane
Hey folks, glad everyone enjoyed my pics. My printer broke, so soon as I get a new one, I'm scanning a pic we had made.Me in old western clothes, holding a shotgun. Everyone who has seen it says I look natural.
We moved to Az. in 1955 for my mama's bad health, daddy died 6 mths. later. We stayed there till "59, then moved back to Ga. I married my GI in 60, followed that man everywhere. After we retired, we settle in SC in "77. Moved on my farm in "93. Lost him in "99, been raising goats ever since.Love it!
I'm from a small farming area, Red Oak, Ga. southwest of Atlanta, Buddy was a city boy from Atlanta.Made an interesting marriage. I've always growned flowers. Grew tomaters in buckets on my patio in Germany.That's ya'lls history lesson for today,lol. Take care & blessings.Diane
