Out of the mouth of Babes..

A little about my part time job. I watch a set of 2 year old twin boys for one of the doctors I work with. They are 2 very bright boys and they truly amaze me. It has been almost 2 weeks since I last watched them due to them going on vacation and me having my wisdom teeth removed. Tonight I was asked to watch them while Mom & Dad went out to dinner. Well they were just going down to bed when mom & dad left. I always leave the baby monitor on to listen for any problems. Bedtime is about 8pm. Of course they are not really ready for sleep. So you hear the two of them just talking away to each other. Usually it is Gino who is up and talking away at night. Well tonight Domonic decided to join in and talk the night away. They babble and talked off and on until about 8:45pm. Out of the blue one of them says "where mommy and daddy, will you be quiet and trying to sleep". I truly though I was going to fall of the couch laughing at them. It was priceless. I will have to start taping them it to share their cuteness. The about 9:15pm I heard fireworks being set off outside and decided to go up and check on them and make sure they are in bed and sleep. I walk in the room and peek in on Dominic on the left hand side of the room and see him wiggle. then tip toe over to Gino and can hear him snorning away. As I head back to the door I notice the Domonic move some and see that he is still away. I ask him why he is still awake and he asks "Mommy, Daddy". I tell him it is Miss Christy and he asks "where mommy & daddy?". I tell him they went out to dinner. So the little thinker he is he ask "Mommy & daddy hungry". How sweet is that. I tel them that will be back soon and he will see them when he wakes up then rub his little back as he curls up to go to sleep. Could you just not eat them up? They are truly 2 bright little sweethearts. I could truly give up my give up my day job and watch them all day and not feel one bit bad about leaving work..

Update on Grandma - She has had most of her tubing (endtracheal tube, NG Tube and so on) removed and is still hanging in the condition she was prior to removing the tubes. There has not been any improvement. She just wants to sleep all the time and her heart is not putting the output they were expecting. We will see how it goes from here. She has been the Hospital since June 13th and has only spent one night out of the ICU unit. Her Iron over the weekend was 7.2 and 9.4 so they are worried about internal bleeding. Only time will tell.

Do I really have to go back to work!!!!

After four days away from work tomorrow I have to return to the nut house. Even with those days being pain filled and a lot of time sleeping, I truly enjoyed being away. No Sharon phone smashing melt downs, No whinny patients & NO RINGING PHONE OR MESSAGES. I really and truly hate my job. I enjoyed being home before six pm and waking up at 7:30 am. Working there is just getting to the point that I hate thinking about it. There is nothing like cuddling up on the couch with a spotted pup and finishing off a few chapters in a good book watching the rain fall outside. Why oh Why do I have to go back. Can't I call in sick, I have enough time saved up... I truly do not like this place....

It was raining about 1am this morning before I finally feel asleep. Then I woke up this morning to it raining again. From the radar it looks like it will be raining all day.. YUCK!!! Very overcast and now it is a drizzle. ....

The Teeth are out!!!

Yeppers!!!!!! My 3 wisdom teeth are out.. And I think I will survive. I think he had a hard time getting some of them out because of their position. It has been since 11am since I had pain medications. The bleeding has slowed down to an ooze and my cheeks are swollen and I look like a chipmunk. I have been able to keep down Boost, chicken broth with soggy cracker and now some ice cream. My 2 spotted nurses have been really great, they are asleep right now.

The North Carolina side of my family....

Their health is totally frustrating. Around mothe's day grandpa was taken to Duke University hospital because of chest pain, abdominal pain and abnormal blood levels. After almost a week they find that his gallbladder has a few stones in it and must be removed. Well, two weeks ago they admit Grandma to do a heart cath (it was origionally scheduled around mother's day). They found that she had three blocked arteries that were too narrow to stent so she was scheduled for a triple bypass. On June 13th she had her surgery and she seemed to be back on track. The about Thursday of last week she started taking a turn for the worse. She just seemed to only want to sleep. Saturday started getting worse, would not wake up, they found that her heart was not working like they had hope. She now back on most of the tubes she was one after surgery. Last night dad said she would respond to question. Also while this is going on dad's sugars are going wacky. Grandpa's leg is bothering him. The lumberton branch are too lazy or scared to go visit her in the hospital (Great bunch)... And I must go because I am scheduled to have my 3 remain wisdom teeth pulled.. YUCK!!!!!!! & OUCH!!!!!. Time to go

The miss adventures of a spotted pup.

I must say when people say Dalmatians are dumb should live with my two. It is truly like living with 2 three year olds. I.V. Grace is not as bad as Cody is. Gracie is my Snob, Princess, scaried cat and most of all she is the DRAMA QUEEN. If you brush her side she will scream like you are killing her. If she wants something Cody has she will constaintly whine like a big sigh. Cody is my thinker. She is constaintly thinkingof how to tease his sister, get what her wants and most of all cause trouble. At our other house we had to but a lock on the pantry to keep him out of the pantry. He will stick his head out of the doggie door and check the weather. When the sun comes out he will run out and sun himself. If the sun moves out of his normal sunning spots he will find a new location then come in and tell Gracie where the new sunny spot is. Tonight we were watching TV and the new Wendy's commercial with the odd shaped family and they fall into a rut and make these sound like tallking. Well Cody was extemely interested in it, watched the whole commercial then put his head back down. Last night the pups were given Benedryl because the storm, well he ate the bread off of the pill and spit it out when we were not looking. Crasy little guy.
