Up date from my other blog...Monday 18, 2011

Just an up date on Keifer, we have been so blessed with our Grandson, The picture of him and his little Sister is so special to me now. When I made it I didn't think too much of the window behind them.. my focus was just on the kids, but after his wreck I realize it was a message from God that he is always there and he will take care of them.

It is truly a miracle that he is here and doing so well, even the Drs and Nurses can't believe it. They lost him in the ambulance and also in the ER. But God sent him back each time.
He is awake and talking, he still doesn't remember the wreck only the officer (his best friend) telling him to "hold on Keifer, OMG, Keifer don't move, OMG, Keifer stay with us Buddy" and the intense burning in his stomach.
The update is wonderful...They took the neck brace off yesterday and removed the nose tube and the drain tube from his stomach and also removed his catheter. They fitted him with a back brace for the 2 vertebra and his 6 ribs will have to heal on their own. They hope to get him up and walking today. He is in alot of pain and still really weak but he is A LIVE.
He is worried about his car, but it is gone nothing on it but the drivers door and seat was salvageable, but as his Daddy said who cares it's just a piece of metal it can be replace our sweet boy can't. These little sports "match box" cars are nothing but death traps that fold up like paper when you hit anything.
I want to thank each and everyone of you for your sweet notes and your Prayers, Keifer has along way to go yet, but he has come along way already.
God is good and Keifer is a real testamony to his love and grace.
Update for Weds 20, 2011
Praise God Keifer is getting to come home today. Still has along road ahead and needs someone with him 24/7. But he is doing well enough to finish his recovery at home where he is comfortable.
In home care will come every other day for PT. His Dad has taken a week or 2 off and his Sweet girl friend Hannah who hasn't left his side, will be sleeping on a cot by his bed at night. And of Course you know I'll be there till they run me home...lol.
Thank you so much for your prayers and concern. Please continue to keep him in your prayers he has along hard road ahead.

Prayers need please

Keifer with Baby Girl on her First Communion Day.
I am stopping by to ask all my blogging friends to please keep my sweet Grandson Keifer in your prayers, We came so close to losing him last night,  He was in a bad car wreck about 11:30 last night, he was on his way home and only 2 miles away when he hit some loose gravel and lost control flipping his car and hitting a huge pine tree.  His blood pressure dropped so low they almost lost him before they could do surgery to remove his ruptured spleen, They had to give him blood before they could do surgery. He has 6 broke ribs, 2 fractures on each of his L3 & L4 vertebrae, a large piece of the bone is broke off and missing in his right hip socket, plus numerous other cuts & bruises. Please pray for him, He is in so much pain..and it is going to be along hard road for him.
We are hoping there are no more breaks or fractures that they haven't found yet because they can not move him to x-ray his real good.
The only part of his car not even scratched or bent was the drivers door and the drivers seat. He doesn't remember what happened but a lady that saw it and called the law said that he crawled out of the drivers window and collapsed in the ditch, his best friend was the responding Police Officer and when he saw Keifer he just knew he wasn't going to make it.
.From the look of his car God was sitting with him and held him in his arms, He got him out of that car there is just no other explanation for his survival.
He is such a sweet, caring and loving child, We have been overwhelmed and feel so blessed by all of the people, teens and adults from our town and from Jackson who have come to the hospital, even though they know they probably can't get in to see him, texted or called just to let us know they are there and love him. Baby Girl is really taking it hard, she is so close to her Bubba..

I'm back

We had some severe storms Tuesday night and I lost internet connection..the powers to be at AT&T just knew the modem was bad so they sent a new one yesterday by UPS for me to hook up..guess what? It wasn't the modem, it was the lines leading to the house..all week lost cause they wouldn't listen to me. So I am finally back on line. Will try to catch up as soon as I can.

Last year when my pot plants started dying I set this old dish pan full of dead flowers in the edge of the woods on an old tractor DH had planned to work on and get it set in my yard. Can you imagine my surprise and delight when I spied this yesterday evening...

Day 75/76 365 project

Such a kooky little girl, hair in rag rollers getting ready for a photoshot...
The same young lady 2 hrs later...
Sorry I'm so late posting and I didn't get anything posted yesterday, I spend 4 yrs taking photos of Rissa and 2 other children for a friend of mine..
This morning before day light my Husband woke me up to take him to the hospital, we were there over 6 hrs and I am just totally wiped out. He is ok for now, but his blood pressure has been acting up for several days. This morning he woke up with terrible headache and pressure of 200/125..not good at all.

Day 73/365 project

I have seen several commericals for the Ken Kobre light scoop and had wondered what it was and after seeing several folks on the blogs talking about how great it was I decided to look into it. I watch the video and decided that even though it wasn't guaranteed to work on my camera that it was a close enough match to maybe do alright. I had to do a little adjustment to the settings they gave and still not totally happy with the lightness of the pictures. But I think I am going to really like, not having the shadows when using the flash.
What do you think..????
I used the manuel setting with
ISO set to 800
Aperture f/4.0
shutter speed 1/250
set flash on front curtain sync
flash exposure to +1
Can anyone give me any suggestions on how to keep it from coming out so light,?

Day 71/365 project

Hank my Fur Grandbaby, he belongs to my oldest son. He is the twin brother to my beautiful much loved and miss Titus. We lost TiTi 3 years ago today and I don't have any pictures of him, but looking at Hank is almost the same....I lost all of my pictures a couple of years ago when my computer crashed...(learned to save on external hard drive after that). TiTi, was a one in a million, never be another one like him. We so miss him.
