Posts Tagged ‘sickness’

In America we take so many things for granted.  If we get sick, we go to the pharmacy and pick up over the counter medication that can help us get well.  Other times, we go to the doctor and get prescription medicine to help us get well from an infection or sickness.  We are blessed.  We have instant access to information to help keep ourselves well.

The best thing is that we have been taught that washing our hands well with soap can help to keep us healthy.  We have access to soap and water on a regular basis.  Not everyone is so lucky.  What they don’t know and don’t have access to can harm them or kill them.  Soap and water save lives and there is a Global Soap Project that you may not be aware of to get soap into the hands of people who are in need of it, to stay well.  To continue click here.

       A week ago we were all horrified to learn of a young 22 year old man who was stabbed to death while he slept on a greyhoud bus that was traveling through Canada.  This young man did nothing wrong and yet, he was vicously stabbed over and over again; and then, sorry for having to say this…was beheaded by his attacker.  The attacker, Vince Weiguang Li, then ate parts of the body.  That is a violation of mind, body and spirit and is hard to understand how someone could act so normal and be so unbalanced.

         As all of this was happening, the other bus occupants left the bus for their safety.  An officer reported seeing some of the horrifying actions of Vince Li.  He was arrested and has gone before a judge who asked him if he wanted a lawyer.  He supposedly shook his head and said, “Please Kill Me”.

          Killing him would be all too easy.  Yes, I am sure there are many who wish that to be his punnishment.  Even if that is the end result, it is not going to be that easy.  There will be a process for Li that takes time.  You don’t request death and it is done instantly through legal proceedings.  It is not going to be that easy for Li.  He will have a long time to relive the horror that he perpetrated.  Over and over again, he will be tortured by memories of what he did.  (more…)

      With twisted individuals like these three alleged criminals; no, you are not even free from sexual assault when you are dead and buried.  Three men, Alexander and Nicholas Grunke (twins) and their friend, Dustin Radke, were arrested because the police suspected they had begun to dig up a young woman recently deceased from a motorcycle accident. 

       One of the men allegedly saw a photograph, in the obituary, of the victim and talked the other two into digging up her body, for the purpose of intercourse.   It makes you think twice about even posting an obituary of someone you love, when they die.  (more…)

      For those of you who don’t follow my blog…my mother has been in the hospital with serious health concerns.  They thought she had congestive heart failure, or pneumonia, or severe bronchitis.  She can’t get enough oxygen. (more…)

        My children arrived safely from Atlanta for the Thanksgiving holiday.  They are going to be here several days to enjoy each other before everyone arrives for Thanksgiving dinner.  This is good.

         My son said…he almost didn’t get to come as (he owns his own business) he had alot of business to do during this week.  I am thankful for the high speed internet that allowed him to come and work out of my husband’s office here at home.  Otherwise it would have been another holiday without my son, daughter-in-law and grandson and granddaughter.  That just would not be a good thing.  We were supposed to go there for the holiday but finances just didn’t permit it, unfortunately .

         We can never get together as often as a Grandma would like.  The grandchildren have a bad habit of growing up in between visits :)! 

          Here is wishing safe travel for everyone during the holidays so that more good memories can be made.  The only downside is the crazy sicknesses that are going around.  Baby girl arrived with a bad cold and cough…kind of like the virus that keeps on giving…the one that my family here has been battling for the last couple of weeks!  Here is hoping that she is feeling better soon.  Happy Thanksgiving!

       With my son and his family coming home for thanksgiving…i am washing down the walls in the kitchen.  I am getting ready to paint the paintable wallpaper.  Part of the walls are covered in printed wallpaper and part of it is covered in  ivory, paintable wallpaper. 

      The ceiling is in desperate need of brightening up a nice white.  I think i am going to brighten up the paintable walls with a cheery, robin egg blue to go with the small printed, blue cornflower wallpaper.  It should look very nice with the light oak cabinets.

      I have a confession to make….we started putting up the printed paper but never finished it.  🙂  In stead of asking my husband to finnish that…i am going to paint.  If we decide to finish putting it up under the cabinets then it will just go over the paint.  My hubby has the sickness that the children have had.  I am feeling bad for him…trying to work when he isn’t feeling well.

     Of course, it is holiday time…so we have to get some kind of virus or whatever.  We will have about 30 people here for dinner.  We need to get well fast.  So , soon i am off to the drugstore to pick up some lysol as well as some muscinex.  Hope we are all 100% before the weekend with my son and his family arrive.  I dont want them getting sick too.

      Have a great day!

dsc02003.jpgdsc02014.jpgdsc01996.jpgdsc01996.jpg      The day was bright, breezy, and full of sunshine today.  Took lots of pictures of the kids at different outdoor locations.  It was fun.  We had a good time and the kids look great.  I realized last week…that i have been falling down big time in the picture taking department.

      So, i took quite a few.  The kids weren’t like really dressed up or anything at all…but they are more like candid shots. (more…)
