What a week!

Ok so it's been one heckuva week. The good news is Rocky G. is home and well. To let you know how sick he was the medicine they gave him to increase his blood pressure is a "last resort" medicine. It is called Levabid <----- SP the nurses refer to it as leave em dead. Most people do not live if they have to be given that drug. He is so strong and has cheated death so many times it is AMAZING! School is going well. I got a lot of it done online while sitting at the hospital with him. I am caught up in English until March 1st.

Yes I know my layout SUX but I can not figure out how to fix it. It is driving me CRAZY and I am about to quit Blogging!

Anyone who knows how to fix it PLEASE help!

People Don't Get What they Deserve

I just wanted to update you all on Rocky G. Wednesday he woke up and said...... "I feel weird" Thursday at about 2 am I awoke to him screaming "HELP" bloody murder. I ran in the kithen to see what was wrong and that was it. He had a fever of 104 and was loco. When you have a transplant you have to do everything through your coordinator. So he said he would take some meds and wait til she got there in the am. Our alternative was the ER and he WILL NOT do that! So at 8 we called her and she told us to come on. By this time Rocky did not even know ho I was. So I realized I had to get hom o the car and to Birmingham ASAP! So here we go!! I carry him piggy back to the car. We fly to Birmingham- I get there and call ahead to say they need to meet me to transport him upstairs because he is immobile. So here comes this nurse all of about 100 pounds soaking wet and says" Honey get in the wheelchair" I was like "Are you serious?" Just stand there look pretty and hang on to the wheel chair. " I got him in and then it got crazy. They took him upstairs ad his BP was like 38/23. They told me he had "Sepsis" I had no clue what thet was (Thank God) . Later they found pnemonia. The next few days Rocky spent completely out of it. He did not know me or even where he was. The Dr. explained sepsis to me and boy was I surprised. People that have his type of immune system only have a 20% survival rate. I am so glad I did not know this on Thursday because I WOULD HAVE FREAKED because I was by myself. Yes by myself. I really don't get it either why hardly anyone ever comes but I guess it is because it is a whopping hour away in Birmingham. Anyways long story short he is out of the woods now. He is one of the lucky 20% and we are on the upswing. He is still in UAB and will be for a bit more. I hate him constantly having to fight. Like I said people don't get what they deserve.

My Blaine

Ok so I wanna tell you all a little about Blaine AKA B. He just finished his first semester of the 6th grade and had to take exams for the first time. We were all so nervous about this. He had to take one in Math (made a 100) Social Studies (made a 100) Science (made a 106) and english and he (made a 95) . I am so lucky to have a child who excels like this. He reads on a 12th grade level and is not even a nerd. Heck I wouldn't care if he was. His lowest grade on his report card that he gets tomorrow is going to be a 99. I just wish that there was some way that I could show him how AWESOME that is! I do not want him to ever take that for granted. He is so smart and I so hope that he far surpasses me in EVERYTHING! He is a precious child who is loved by so many! I so am not bragging about him it is just that I just feel so lucky to have a child like this. I thank God that i am not "Payin for my raisin" at least not yet :)

Good Bye 2008!

I must say that I am thrilled that this is the last day of this junky year! I mean could Rocky have one more surgery he has only had 96783. The beginning of Junior High has just about killed me! I knew 6th grade was gonna be a big change but I mean uggghhh! I can hardly stand about 90% of the kids that used to be Blaine's best friends! Things change so much so quick! Blaine has seen these changes in these kids and pulled away from them and for that I am so happy! It has just been hard for him because they have all been so very close! I am not going to vent about how HORRIBLE 2008 was I am just gonna move on. I am so excited about 2009 and am going to make so MANY changes! I want stronger relationships! That is what I am going to focus on! All my relationships... Family, friends, God everyone! So to 2008 I say GOODBYE and 2009 better be better!

My husband is the best!

See that Christmas wish below..... it is not a wish anymore! Got it! It is the awesomest thing you have ever seen in your whole entire life ever! The only thing that would be awesomer is if it were my wedding ring.

It has been way to long since I have posted and that usually means craziness. And as usual the Gillespie's have a story for EVERYTHING! Honestly I am tired of a story for everything but I think that is how it is gonna stay. Just pray.

I will start with I love Jesus with all my heart and am so thankful for his birth. I am also very thankful that Christmas is OVER! This was the most stressful Christmas ever! I mean ever! Even worse than the one we thought was gonna be Rocky's last!

I am not gonna bash and bash on here I will just say to those of you who know me that Rocky's brother is nothing more than TOTALLY RIDICULOUS! He needs to be locked up and the key THROWN away forever and ever! He single handedly ruined Christmas! Not mine Blaine's, Rocky's and my mom's Christmas but the time that we spent that was with him! Honestly him and Rocky almost tied up! He is crazy! He is the only person ever known to live through telling me to shut up without getting his butt whooped and if we had not been at Maw Maw's then I would have!

That is all the time I am going to spend on him. Ever I mean ever again!

I got my ring and the coolest owl compact ever! Money to get my hair did! Lots of other awesome things. rocky and B both got laptops they are brats!

Thank you Jesus we have another year!

Friends are the greatest family because you can pick them!

WOW what I would do! Seriouly I would die! Best present ever!
Wishful Thinking!

OK so Nicole B is the best!

She said I would delete it! Nope I am gonna keep it! Honestly I love it! She is my favorite :) She nailed it in just a few paragraphs. So thanks Nicole. I love you more than my Hello Kitty sandwich bags :)

Now let me catch everyone up. For once I am gonna talk about me first :) I just finished my first semester finals and came out with straight A's. Through all the junk I have been through this semester I am so PROUD!

Now for Rocky. He is coming home today. Had his gallbladder removed. Has pancreatitis which basically means he can not eat anything more exciting than a plain baked potato. he has lost a butt ton of weight. But is better. Finally. Thanks all of you for your prayers. We still need them. I have missed a ton of work and it is Christmas and well ya know. I already have my Christmas wish though he is gonna be home :)

And as for Blaine. Well let's just say he is sailing through with flying colors as well. Has straight A's,loves God, plays Basketball, has about 1973 girls after him. (8973) texts just in November. LOL! He is too much. But there is this one special one and man oh man she is a cutie! He is great! I mean great! Everything I always wanted.
