I have to update you all! Monday morning my daughter was taken to the Emergency Room and wished into an emergency caesarian section because my daughter’s blood pressure was dangerously high 260/148! She had HELPs syndrome. The treatment is delivery of the baby. She is improving and baby Katerina was born 10/09/2017 at 3 pounds and 15 inches long.
Katerina is going to have to be in the hospital for at least 3 weeks. They don’t have that rule anymore where you can take baby home at 5 pounds. It’s up to how the baby is or is not thriving. She is being fed via a tube down her throat into her tummy. Breast milk every 3 hours.
The one with the young man is the daddy! And the last one is my daughter.
Go grateful to God that my baby girl and her baby girl are alright!
Update: Sunday October 15, 2017
As of Saturday my daughter’s blood pressure still isn’t really under control. But they plan to discharge her later today.
Katerina is still 3 pounds at last report. She is under the bilirubin lights. I hope to see them both later today.
We got a house to move into in a week!
Thank you for your prayers 🙏🏻🙌🏻

A few weeks ago I launched a rescue mission the Tuesday after Labor Day. Over the long weekend, my daughter and son-in-law2b hired a couple to bring them up from Kentucky to where I live in the suburbs of Chicago. Well, the car blew a tire on the expressway and the towing/ repair shop would not take a debit card over the phone. Neither would the motel. So, after using all of the cash they had, got the tire fixed and it blew 1 mile up the road. What??!! You can’t make this stuff up! They reversed all the way back to the shop! They repaired it again. No charge. I think that they should have refunded the $75 they paid. Period.
I told them just to go back to Mayfield (KY) and I would figure something out. My daughter is expecting and was 28 weeks at that point. So, I as a momma, rented a car and went and got them. It was 8 hrs down. Not counting when I got very lost trying to find them because if you got off the main road, the GPS stops working and no phone service either! I asked a very nice man (at a stop sign in the backwoods of Kentucky) how to get to that main road.
“Ma’am, you ARE lost” (me: uh, yes. Smh🤦🏻♀️). “You stay on this road. It’s very curvy! (Duh, I have been on it for only 1/2 hr.! 💭) “…cross 303. And go till you get to 121 and turn right! That will git you back ta Mayfield. (Back.to.mayfield????) 🤦🏻♀️
So 1/2 hr or so later, I found CVS across from the courthouse. And the police station 😂🤣😂 I told my daughter that I was found!! She had called me so many times and I had no phone service! So she was freaking out!
They are well. We all have recuperated! Especially me because I had to drive all but 2 1/2 hours back with no sleep and I couldn’t sleep when we got home until night! I was punch drunk being awake for like 36 hours or so!
Now back to handicrafts!
