What a LONG day I had at work today! I had to work over a bit more than usual but it really seems like it adds up by the time I've already worked 15 hours! But the good thing is that I can sleep in an extra hour tomorrow morning! Instead of getting up at 4:15 a.m., I can get up at 5:15 instead! One of these days, I'd like to find another job that didn't require such long hours! But right now, I need to keep realizing that God gave me THIS job for now and HE will make things work for our future!

It has been kind of a crazy week! We had Bible school this week at church and late one night, my precious daughter in law, Erin, called me and was pretty upset. I was sure something had happened to her new baby but instead, something had happened to MY baby!! (My 23 year old baby, Danny!) Most likely, he had heat stroke or was dehydrated and she ended up calling 911. THEN she called me and I drove an hour to spend the night with them. I was HAPPY to do it...I got to visit with THEM and THEN I GOT TO HOLD THAT BABY ALL BY MYSELF FOR A LONG TIME!!!! Jennie came with me because she was so worried about her big brother but she ended up falling asleep on the floor and I was totally selfish with that baby and held him and kissed him! HEHEHEHE!!!! Danny is fine and went to work the next morning as usual. He has been doing some more training for the police and he had been in the heat all day!

The next day, I was feeling really bad and Roger ended up talking me into going to the emergency room because I was so out of breath and my heart was beating so hard and strangely. They ended up making me stay over night and finally released me one hour before Bible school began the next evening!! Roger taught the class and I just took it easy!! I didn't have a heart attack (I thought perhaps I had had a mild one a few weeks ago but I didn't!) and there were no more big irregularities that were a real concern. (my EKG was abnormal at first but then it was fine...) I'm on medication that will help regulate my heart and lower my blood pressure and I feel GREAT!!!! I hadn't realized how really bad I've felt for several months!! In fact, last night, Roger and I finished up with Bible school and we went for a late night BIKE RIDE!! I didn't really get out of breath and it felt so good to do something physical again! Last time I tried that was over spring break and I didn't do very well!

So, that's the craziness that has been going on this week! Now it's time for me to get to bed so that I can have ONE more long day at work and then it's FATHER'S DAY! Roger already got his BIG present, his new bike, but I have ONE more for him! I'm making my parents' a scrapbook but it's not QUITE done yet!!
Have a lovely day!
