Random Ramblings

~ I have a cold! Usually colds don't bother me, but ever since I had bronchitis when I was pregnant with Caleb I always get nasty coughs when I have a cold. It started on Sunday and last night I didn't sleep well because of all the coughing. I am taking Mucinex which is helping...oh and cough drops. But did you know there's a limit on how many cough drops you can take...you can't just pop them like candy.

~ Rondell just found out that one of his childhood friends is in ICU at OSU Medical Center. Rondell was very upset when he heard the news and was even more upset when he went to visit Brian and he was not conscious.

Brian and Rondell are the type of friends who can go years without talking and then when they do it's just like old times. A few years ago Brian had a kidney transplant and was doing very well, but now there's something going on with is lungs. Rondell went back to the hospital last night and things look better which puts Rondell at ease.

One thing that I thought was sweet about the emotional evening...as I was getting ready to leave for Bible Study I told Jamison to take good care of her dad. Later Rondell told me that he had fallen asleep while Jamison was watching a show (Caleb was already asleep) and she woke him up to tell him it was time for her bath. When she saw that he was still sleeping she somehow got a glass out of the cabinet and got him a glass of water...how sweet! He said that it did help. **Because of all of this we didn't put the film on the door, but plan to tonight...it's that last thing that needs to be done.

~ Dear Lost: I really hope you have some answers for me tonight. You've been saying that this is the season for answers (being the last one and all), but for some reason you're leaving me with more questions than answers.

~ 2 1/2 months till Florida!

I hope that Rondell's friend gets well soon. I will be saying a prayer for him.

Oh...I know the cough your referring too. For some reason they haunt us for weeks after a cold goes away and it's the worst, hack your head off cough. I didn't know about the cough drops, never knew there was a dosage on them. Wow, I can go through a bag in just a couple of days. Ooops.

Counting down to your vacation too!! Can't wait to meet up with y'all!!

Ohhh, I love it when the little ones do something sweet like that. When Jeremy has had a rough night at the station and he takes a nap the following day, typically one of the girls will go get a blanket and cover him up. It's really very sweet.

I think we have that same cold/virus. My older girls have had a horrible cough for about week now, and Kameryn is starting in. Poor things. Hope you feel better soon!

I love your Florida countdown! I am counting down the days 'til my San Jose trip! Whoo hoo! Can't wait.

I'm so sorry you have a cold. Blahhh. Springtime needs to get here soon!

Jamison is such a sweetheart...taking care of daddy! I hope his friend gets better real soon.

We have all been battling colds around here too! I hope you feel better soon! I'm sorry to hear about Rondell's friend, but isn't Jamison the sweetest thing ever to take care of her daddy like that! I am excited about LOST! Jason and I spent all last Wednesday night looking up theories and trying to figure out all the stuff from last week's episode!

Aw, I'm sorry to hear you're sick with a cold. :( I'll be praying for you. But, I sure didn't know about the cough drops. When I'm sick with a cold and coughing, I do pop cough drops in my mouth like their M&Ms. No wonder I get so floopy at times. :S

I sure am sorry to hear about Rondell's friend. Bless his heart. Know I will be praying for both Rondell and his friend, but what you said about Jamison (I love that name, btw) is so sweet. Children are simply amazing, aren't they? And, such a blessing.

Well, you take good care of yourself. I think of you often. God bless you, Kelli! :)


PS ~ Thank you for holding me and my family up in prayer. You have NO idea how much I appreciate it, my sweet friend. *hugs*

Lots of emotions running in your home it seems. Hang in there Kel! Isn't it so precious to see the fruits of your labor in Jamison. It's the times when we're not looking that they surprise us. It just goes to show that you and Rondell are doing a great job at showing kindness to Jamison. :)

Hope you feel better soon.

Kelli said...

So sorry about Rondell's friend. :( He'll be in my thoughts and prayers. Please keep us posted.

That kind of cough is so aggravating and painful! Nyquil Cough always seems to help me when I'm like that.

Kelli said...

Forgot to say that I, too, am waiting on those LOST answers! I LOVE that show and we follow it very closely, but right now there are more questions than answers!

Carrie said...

Oh I hope you feel better soon! I hope Rondells friend is better too.

I agree with you on Lost come on already!

Have a great day
