The past week brought with it a couple of surprises and lots of family!!
I looked after this little man for 3 days this week - here he is having brekky - pancakes are the everyday brekky here with Sustagen added as Naomi is on a high protein diet!! Oliver is now 9 months old and loves his food, any food that is, as long as you feed it to him!!! Not too keen on holding onto it himself!!
On Friday night our eldest son, Adam, arrived with the truck to be loaded with hay and straw to take back to Canberra to delivered to customers. His sons, Brodie and Lachlan came down with him to help load. Brodie turned 17 on Saturday so we had a birthday cake and presents for him. Here he is in the Onesie we gave him as a joke - he actually wore it home on Saturday night in the truck as the cabin is quite cold even with the heater on. This boy is a big 17yrold (6'3" and the same across the chest!!! Lol - not really quiet that wide!!!) He gives me the best bear hugs and usually cracks a few vertebrae back into place when he does!!!
At Tuesday night sewing my friend of 38years brought this beautiful bowl arrangement - from her garden these roses have the most beautiful fragrance - it is 'Best Friend' (RSPCA Rose). They are absolutely beautiful!!
On checking my plant house for the first time in 3 weeks I found these. All of the plants are completely covered with blooms. I remember last year when they were blooming I was going away with Naomi to Melbourne for tests on her heart - it was in good going order and we were all elated.
The photo below is of my favourite one of all of them - such beautiful delicate colours!!
To top off my week I had Nathan, Rheis and Isaac here on Sunday as well as my mother (plus the 2 youngest grandsons) - a great family weekend with Adam and boys being here on Saturday!! It was a great 'pick-me-up' for Naomi with the 3 boys and 2 sister in laws all sitting on her bed and bedroom floor at one time!!lol The bedroom was overfull!!!
Naomi's results for the tests on the stomach fluid have all come back negative - which means the cancer hasn't spread. She is being discussed again in Sydney today - hopeful that they will decide to try a couple of things that may give her a few months longer or at the very least make her more comfortable by controlling the amount of fluid that builds up in the stomach! Today she has been sleeping mostly but she does get up each morning to get Karah off to school.
SPECIAL REQUEST!!!! Please pop over to Chookyblue - she has a special request and a link to follow to support that request.
Time for the school bus to come here so time for me to sign off. Until next time take care and have a wonderful week!!
