My Mamaw was having lots of pain in her legs and was having issues walking. She was admitted back into the hospital and has what they think is serotonin syndrome. She is unable to walk or have use of her lower extremities. At first she was having problems with her arms and hands too, but as of now (June) that has corrected itself. She is unable to stay alone and my Aunt Beth has been with her since February. We try to pitch in, but she is staying there full time.
Also, my Papaw became very sick towards the end of February and had to go in the hospital. He had surgery and never regained consciousness afterwards. His heart gave out and he passed away February 28, 2012. Our world has been UPSIDE DOWN!!! I was sad for myself, but my main concern has been my children. Mamaw and Papaw have been their world.....and then their world fell apart.

Alyson (my baby) turned 16 on the 8th. I can't believe how grown she is. I am truly blessed.
Papaw would have celebrated his 80th birthday on March 9th. We decided to send balloons off for him to celebrate his birthday.
My dad celebrated his 60th birthday on St. Patrick's Day. We had a party at their house with lots of his brothers and sister---and later that evening we went to The Rendezvous for dinner.
Here are a few other pics from March :0)
My little boy turned 4 years old...wow,....where has the time gone??? We had a Mommy/Cooper day and went out to breakfast and to the zoo while the girls were in school. Later that night we had his family party at Mamaw's house with his tractor cake Mrs. Linda made.
