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.

My Favorite People

Hi Guys! Its Nicole, Tara's BFF in Birmingham, only I don't live in B'ham anymore but thats okay. She asked me to fix her blog b/c she has too much stuff going on... well I did. And now I'm asking YOU to say a prayer for Rocky, Tara and Blaine. I can't even imagine walking a day in their shoes. God has done some wonderful things in their lives BUT the devil is still out to steal, kill and destroy! Its the holidays and while most of lives are crazy theirs is 100x crazier. Please keep them in your prayers and if God leads you to do more than obey.

She's going to delete this post as soon as she sees it. But just incase you read it first... please pray for them.

Rocky is supposed to be released tomorrow and I know he's ready to be home! I'm sure Tara is exhausted from driving back in forth to Birmingham everynight while still working a full time job and being a mom. You'll never hear her complain b/c thats just the kind of person she is. Their lives will never be "normal" but I know that God has something BIG in store for that wonderful family!

enough... now go pray!

One day..... I wanna just be "normal."

So here you go here is an update. Rocky is definately having surgery. That is all we know for sure. He is either having gall stones removed or his gall bladder removed. They do not know if they will be able to do it laproscopically yet or not. They began feeding him intravenously last night. Which just basically mean he is getting nutrients in his system but not that "full" feeling that we all long for. Also the "pancreatitis" is being caused by the gall stones so that will be taken care of soon. And that my friends is all I know. One day I just wanna be normal like go through the ads , go shopping the day after Thanksgiving, take someone to Libby Lou and just RELAX. One day.................................

God has me confused with someone else.

Everyone always says God will never give you more than you can handle. I honestly believe that with all my heart. However I do think that God may have me confused with someone else. Is that possible? This is it..I officially want to crawl in a hole. Just an update on Rocky. He has pancreatitis. Google it and it will give you all the details. I know your cousin's momma's brother had it and he is fine however...... Rocky is different. It is his immunosuppressants (that he HAS to have to LIVE) that is causing the pancreatitis. So what to do what to do. Honestly I don't know what to do anymore. Tired of trying to figure it out. On a positive note his lungs are GREAT! MWUAH

Spoke too soon

Well I guess I was stupid to think that we could make it through my birthday and the Holidays without Rocky going in the hospital! He was admitted this am and honestly they do not have a clue what is up. He is in terrible pain, throwing up, eyes are all jacked up, and just feels like junk. They are going to start with his gallbladder and go from there. Let me guess awww the gallbladder is not a big deal. Well not to be mean but speak for yourself. Nothing is not a big deal for us. Anyways so he is in and that always makes things crazy. But it is not about me it is about him and I just hope they hurry up and figure it out and he gets better :) I just get extremely stressed and upset when all this happens and I know everyone has the world's worst mother in law but mine always LOVES to make my life worse during these times. She took him to the Dr. this morning because I HAVE to work seeing as how he really can't. So she calls me today to let me know what is going on and as if I was not upset wnough she says to me "I just want you to know that Rocky is very worried about you and Dwaune getting back together!" Are you FREAKING serious??? Dwaune could become holier than Billy Graham but that does not change the fact that he choked me etc etc etc etc etc. She just knew what to say to get me more upset than I already am. She is LOVELY. Anyways I am not here to bash her after all I do love her. Just wanted to update ya on another day in my crazy life. Does it get better?

The Birthday Surprise!

Well he did it! Rocky actually stayed out of the hospital on my BIRTHDAY for the first time in 5 years! Woo HOO ! So to celebrate he (along with the help of some ANGEL friends) had a Hello Kitty Surprise party for me! It was complete with all the Hello Kitty acessories etc! It was great! He invited some of my favorite people and we had a blast! I got lots of great presents! My boyfrand Zac was even there! Hot! Rocky went to pick up the 1/2 sheet cake he had ordered and LOL it was smaller than an 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of paper but it was all good! There was plenty of food! I was totally surprised and it has been brought to my attention that I broke out into Hives when I walked in the door. After everyone left me and my favorite favorites headed to PF Changs and froze our butts off but it was yummy!
Now however Rocky is not feeling so well so please be thinking about him and pray that he does not have to go in. Well I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who made my day WONDERFUL and thanks to everyone who sent me wishes, gifts etc! Love you ALL! MWUAH!

1 Day to go!

I absolutly can not believe it 1 day and I am 35! So far Rocky is home and not in the hospital FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 5 YEARS! But you know it had to be something. Blaine who has had NO problems with his braces is at home today WRITHING in pain! He got rubber bands yesterday and apparently they are more than he bargained for! I can remember when my mom was 35 and OMG I thought she was ancient! Does he think this about me? No way I am the coolest mom ever! Right? Right! Still don't know what is in store for this weekend... Hopefully something wonderful.

I can not believe it has been a year and a half since Rocky's lung transplant. Things are so different! I thank God everyday for the miracle that he gave us! I am especially thinking about Rocky's donors family right now with the Holidays coming up. They are such an AMAZING family. We talk to them very often and they are just precious!

Another awesome thing..... I am out of school until 12/2/2008! Wait did you guys even know I was in school? Ha yeah I work full time and go to school 3/4 time. In the spring I will be going full time and working full time and Rocky is starting Barber School! It is a dream of his and he is stoked!
PS The unidentified African American is Rocky's Donor! Otis is COOL!
