Happy Birthday, George Washington, Drew Barrymore . . .

The view from LG's bed this morning


I've had a rough few days, physically. No end in sight. I'm putting all my energy into making today a good day. Because it really is the best day ever.

I'll come back when I can. I really, really want to attend and enjoy LG's birthday party on Sunday. Please keep us in your prayers. And thank you. Again :)

32 heads are better than one . . .

You're in my prayers, dear. Always. Sending lots of love and healing hugs your way.

Happy Birthday, LG!

Today's my brother-in-law's birthday, too.

I've been thinking of you a lot. I want you to be able to attend and enjoy the birthday party!

I'm praying right now.
Imagining giving you a very long hug, where we both close our eyes and imagine your cells. I imagine multiplying and osmosifying any healthy energy from my cells into your cells. You focus on opening up your cells, taking in what they need, releasing from within whatever they don't need, returning to balance.

We'll sing an upbeat lullaby together. Even though I'm tone deaf, so are cells. They only need to know that we love them.

And we do, we do!

I am hoping for you to feel good and get to enjoy the party on Sunday. I enjoyed reading LG's birth story very much... it so reminded me of my son's (a year ago), from the miscarriages, to the hormones, to the AMA pregnancy, to the C-section, to the miracle. Happy birthday, LG.

Happy Miracle Day!!

I'm grateful for the one that is Lily, and I'm willing to ask for another one as well.

Fingers crossed for you to have a good weekend.

I see Touretta Lynn has paid you a visit--just to wish LG a happy birthday!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LG!!!!!

Oh, and on the bright side, if no END is in sight, that means your butt is shrinking, right? Prayers are with you so you may enjoy and be a big part of LG's party on Sunday! Hugs to you!

Happy birthday to your gorgeous girl and thank you for linking to your birth story. It was wonderful to read again how it all worked out for you.

As for you, sending you all my love and prayers that you have good days and that Sunday is a great day. x

Happy Birthday LG! And here's all my best wishes that her Birthday is happy for you too. Eat cake for me.

I'm sorry you've had the bad days and happy for the good ones.

Of course, you remain in my daily prayers.

Wow, you DO have a lot of buttcrack over here, don't you?

*drops a quarter in and runs for dear life*

 
Blogger Lynn said...

Oh, Susie!! Great big hugs to you. I had an unfortunate onslaught of symtoms before the twins' birthday party, too. It actually ended up turning out okay. I'm hoping the very best for you and yours, too, Susie. It would be so wonderful if we didn't have to worry about ill-timed symptomology threatening to spoil our good events. I sometimes say I wish I could 'schedule' my 'symptoms'. If only, huh? I would schedule them for sometime around the end of never!

Sending the very best thoughts your way... Happy Birthday, LG!!!

Happy Birthday, LG! (a little late, I'm thinking, but oh well!)

And I went back and read the birth story (I love 'em). And I had to laugh at the part where you were labeled "advanced maternal age" at 36. Guess how old I was when I pushed out this third one? :) AMA my patootie!

Happy Birthday to LG! That was an incredible "birth story," really enjoyed reading it. Keeping you in my prayers. Or, in the spirit of your ob-gyn, "You will have a great birthday celebration with LG. I know it." :-)

I love that birth story. I think I could read it every week and not get bored. Makes me think about new things, makes me feel hopeful.

I love you for sharing it with us.

Also, I hope LG's birthday itself was fun. And I am thinking of you, hoping for good things for tomorrow's party.

Much love,
she

What a fun birthday sight to wake up to! I'm totally stealing this for "my gal"'s next birthday.

Loved LG's birth story, and your attitude about the unnecessary cesearean. That's exactly how I felt about the botched test results that landed my baby in ICU for four days, totally healthy. "Who cares? She's fine!"
