Same Kind of Different as Me

I just read this book, Same Kind of Different as Me, by Ron Hall and Denver Moore. It is a true story that takes place in Louisiana/Texas about an international art dealer and a modern day slave from Louisiana. It is a heart-warming story and a great read! I have read The Shack and I rank this one right up there with it.

Happy Labor Day

Happy Labor Day to all my Blogging Friends!

Hubby is still in the hospital -- day #13 -- but they have finally found an antibiotic that the infection is responding too so he is getting so much better. Still a long road ahead, but we are making progress. God is so GOOD! Thanks to my blogging friends for their comments and prayers.

Tough Duty

Sitting at the hospital is tough duty, but hey somebody has to do it. My sweet hubby and best friend is in the hospital with a really bad staph infection in his leg. Today makes day #8! The doctor thinks we are heading in the right direction and perhaps antibiotic #3 is the one! The infection is very difficult to treat and often resists antibiotics.

Thank goodness I remembered to grab my laptop (which has become another appendage to my body -- LOL) and bring it to the hospital. It has been a lifesaver for me and has kept me occupied when not doing things for my honey. You see, his leg is so swollen that he can't bend it, can't walk and is pretty much bedridden. I've been reading blogs, Facebook, playing games, etc.

I am doing lots of reading and embroidery. I'll get some pictures posted after we get home since I don't have my camera with me.
