Fun Friday with a little help from my friends. News.

I would love to be able to throw caution to the wind and slide on the floor right out the door!  How about you?

 Thank you Jenn at Jenn's Three Graces

 We laugh -- but her I. D. is safe.

During a recent password audit by a company, it was found that an employee was using the following password:


When asked why she had such a long password, she rolled her eyes and said: "Hello! It has to be at least 8 characters long and include at least one capital."

What word can be written forward, backward or upside down, and can still be read from left to right?  Answer at bottom.

Thank you Katie.

 Thanks Kim at Millie's Mats

     Hunter was 4 years old and was staying with his grandfather for a few days.
He'd been playing outside with the other kids, when he came into the house and asked ,    'Grandpa, what's that called when two people sleep in the same bedroom and one is on top of the other?'

His Grandpa was a little taken aback, but he decided to tell him the truth. 'Well, Hunter, it's called having sex.’

    ‘Oh,’ Little Hunter said, 'OK,' and went back outside to play with the other kids.
A few minutes later he came back in and said angrily, 'Grandpa, it isn't
called having sex.

 It's called Bunk Beds. And Jimmy’s mom wants to talk to you.' 

To update a little:

My husband's bleeding is between the brain itself and it's sheath. It is not in the brain itself so that is great news.
He has lost no function of his body, but he has severe headaches - which now he is on pain medication for.  That is great news.  
If the bleed was in his brain it's much much worse.
Now the plan is to have a CT scan on Wednesday and see one of the other doctors in the original practice that takes Medicare.  If by a miracle it has dissipated then he won't have surgery. He will continue to have CT scans and see what happens.  If it has not dissipated and he still has fresh blood which they can tell how old it is by the CT scan. then they will drill two nickel size holes in his head to try to drain it. I wish I had the answers and knew the timing and what it means to the future.  He is not supposed to do anything right now.  LoL - a mini vacation.  It is our 38th anniversary.
I'm putting ALL of this in God's hands.  HE is much smarter then I am.
Thank you again for all your prayers.
And I'm praying for all of you too who have asked me too.  I haven't forgotten you either. Have a good weekend and look for some beauty in the things and people around you.

Have a beautiful Mother's Day, my friend ~

~ GIVEAWAY ends 5/13 ~

Kim said...

Sr. Ann Marie said...

I'm glad for the update, Sandie. The prayers will definitely continue. And Happy Mother's Day to you!

Belle said...

That is good news since it could be much worse. I am praying and think of you often. I love the jokes today, especially the password. Very funny.

TexWisGirl said...

fingers crossed that the weekend goes quickly and w/o more worries and wednesday will be here before you know it.

Anonymous said...

that news is the best you could hear , I pray he heals and intervention is needed.
My sight loss and other problems are from a bruise on my brain, its such an unknown science still but it is amazing how they can tell old blood from new, great jokes today, my fav was the one with her not needing the bikini top!! Thats a hoot!

Cheri said...

Despite all you are going through you still have a sense of humor. I love the password me laughing as usual. Thanks for the update on Rick...still and will continue to pray until all is over.

Happy Anniversary!

Knitty said...

I'm sorry to have been AWOL for a few days. I wish I could be there to offer to hold your hand, wash dishes, whatever might help as you go through this.

Insurance companies seem to be running doctors and dictating what happens in hospitals now. I wish all the decision makers there had to experience what everyday folks do, and I wish all elected officials had to be concerned with their own medical coverage instead of serving a few years and being covered for life.

Thanks for the Friday funnies. Hugs and prayers to you, your hubby and the rest of the family.

Susannah said...

Happy 38th anniversary!!!! Thanks for letting us know about your husband's update. I am praying for you both and keeping my fingers crossed. Glad he has pain meds for the headache.

Great Friday post...really some good laughs!


HAPPY ANNIVERSARY. HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY. I'm taking a little break right now. Lots going on here. But I wanted you to know I am keeping you and your husband in my prayers. Take care.

That corgi :) said...

Happy anniversary to you and your hubby Sandie! Thanks for the update about his condition; now I understand regarding the bleed; makes sense. Praying he won't have to have surgery and that he gets relief from his headaches. I pray too you have a relaxful Mother's Day, however it is spent.

Loved the jokes, LOL with the dog being sold on eBAY and I have to say that password one was the cutest joke I heard in a long time :)

take care of YOU too Sandie!!


Debbie said...

I laughed right out loud at the bunk beds.

I'm glad to hear encouraging news about your husband. I'll be praying between now and Wednesday for that miracle. If God says NO, then I trust him with the surgery and will be praying toward that.

And HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! I pray that you have many, many more!

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

So happy to hear the good news that the bleeding wasn't in the brain! I hope the pain meds help with his headache and that all the upcoming scans and procedures go smoothly if they are needed. We will all be praying for more good news and to hear the headaches have subsided! Take care, Sandie, and have a good weekend. Happy Mother's Day to you! And Happy Anniversary to you both!
Hugs, Cheryl

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Happy anniversary!! Praying for your miracle between now and Wednesday!

Ginny said...

I was hoping you would give us an update...I have been praying that he won't need surgery, so I'm sticking with that...and for healing! I am so sorry abut this and your anniversary.

photowannabe said...

Terrific smiles today and continued prayers for your husband.
Its good to know that he is in the Lord's hands.

Linda Chapman said...

Thank you for the update. I spend my first few minutes when I wake up in prayer and you and Rick were right there! I especially pray for you as it is so nerve wracking! God grant you peace and wisdom and may Rick find grace in teh eyes of the doctors. I always bake cookies or something and take with me to doctor/hospital visits. Not EVERY time but fairly often. One - it lets the medical staff know they are appreciated and two - they will remmember you and that's often a good thing. Medical offices are so impersonal - and I know they NEED to be - but it is nice when they can actually SEE you and your needs and concerns. Never hurts!

Retired English Teacher said...

Thank you for the all around uplifting post. You do make me smile, and you give me a few jokes to share with others. That is a good thing.

I'm so happy to hear the news about your husband. Sometimes, just have more complete answers makes all the difference. Still praying,,,

Betty WSch. said...

Will be praying for that miracle. Wouldn't it be awesome, if he didn't need the surgery?
Love that password joke and reposted it on fb. Hope you don't mind. LOL

Happy Anniversary!!

I will definitely be praying for you all, for continued healing, that it will dissipate, and that you all will feel God's presence in a very real way through this. {{hug}}

Happy anniversary. 38 is a nice number.

Thanks too for the nice blonde joke. I like blondes, joking or not.
