Whirlwind

This morning I am posting from chilly Arkansas, which is a bit crazy considering I am supposed to be in Texas right now.

Friday evening we received a call that my grandmother had fallen and broken her shoulder and was in the hospital. My parents happened to be visiting casa de phillips at the time. Saturday morning Evelyn and I piled into their van to return back to Arkansas, while Isaac and Tobe stayed behind to enjoy a boy's weekend.

Currently Grandmother is in the hospital, enjoying the treats delivered every four hours from the pharmacy. Originally it was believed she would have surgery, but it seems like that is not going to be the case right now. She has a long road of healing ahead of her and would appreciate any and all prayers.

Most likely, E. and I will return to casa de phillips tomorrow, completing this whirlwind trip. She quickly settled into the role of "only child" these past 24 hours and has enjoyed having everyone all to herself. However, yesterday after crying for a while in the car trying to fall asleep, she eventually began calling "I-------sic." over and over until she nodded off.

So sorry, I'm sure that was a scary phone call. I hope she has a speedy recovery. That is so sweet that Evelyn called out for her brother. :)

I hope your grandmother feels better soon. I am so sorry she fell. She will be in our prayers.

We cut down a small tree in our front yard as well and found someone to remove two stumps and trim the lower branches on our back trees for $250. I wish I could remember who did it, because it seemed like a good deal at the time.

Good luck with the corn. We always had a hard time getting much. Cucumbers and zuchinni and of course tomatoes are always good growers. We had pretty good luck with strawberries as well. Happy planting!
