An Update and Thank You

Hi everyone I just wanted to pop in and give a great big Thank You to all the wonderful people in Blog land that are praying for us and keeping us in their thoughts.  I am sorry I haven't been around but Since OCT 2 we have had out of state company/family visiting  and been busy with Dr's apts and such.  Our Surgery Date is during the 3rd week of Oct but don't want to post the exact date on the WWW. 
This week I should be able to get my fall decorating done and my sewing so hopefully I can get some decor posts up.  I hope yall understand if I can't get by your blogs - I'm gonna try my best now that it's back to a somewhat normal routine this week but I just might not make it.  I hope you all are doing well.
thanks again for everything


  1. Hi Ranae~so good to hear from you! I'm glad you and Doug have family with you to support you with their love and help.

    Don't worry about getting around to the blogs~you just take care of yourself and Doug. I've been praying for both of you and will especially be praying during the surgery week for you both and the doctors and nurses that will be involved with Doug's surgery and post-op care.

    I'm looking forward to seeing your decorating pictures!

  2. I know you must be on edge with all that you've got going on. Its so wonderful that your husband's birth defect has been diagnosed and can be fixed. I pray that he will be fine.

    Its been 25 years, but my son, Josh, had open heart surgery when he was 5 months old, due to a heart defect.

    Will be thinking you guys next week.

  3. Hi Ranae,
    You and your husband will be in my thoughts and prayers.

    Three weeks and two days after surgery, my husband and I walked to a nearby restaurant and had lunch. If somebody had told me we'd be doing that three weeks prior, I wouldn't have believed it.

    You'll be in that place of amazement, too!

  5. I'll be thinking good thoughts for you. And thanks for the idea of a pin on my baktus, I'll be looking for one at Rhinebeck this weekend.

  6. I pray all goes well... I'll be thinking of you guys. About the meatballs and gravy recipe you asked for: LOL I took a bag of frozen meatballs from the store (not Italian... plain), put them in the crockpot, poured a can of cream of mushroom soup and half a soup can of milk over top... sprinkled with pepper, and let it cook. So easy, and very good!

  7. Thinking about you RaNae and missing you too. You and Doug are in all of our thoughts and prayers at Kristi's. It soon will all be over and you both can relax and enjoy Doug's new health. Hugs, RJ

  8. Hi Ranae, I know this is an important week coming up and you guys are in my prayers. Also a note to let you know that you are the winner of my book giveaway. When you get the chance, send an email to me (through my blog) with your name and address~no hurry on this.
