I'm a Grandma? Really?

I had my second epidural yesterday. HURT like the dickens, still does today. However, that didn't stop the excitement and joy that overcame us today at 10:25 AM. Little Judson Travis Wright made his grand appearance. He was 8.2 lbs and 20 3/4" long. God love that precious child. He, Travis and Trish are tired but doing great. Can't wait to get my hands on him. Of course when there are exes involved, it makes things difficult. Our time will come! We are overjoyed to reach this milestone in our lives.

Actor Among Us

Zacharys play (The Princess and The Pea) was a hit yesterday. He is such a natural on stage. I don't know where he gets it, certainly not from me. I hate getting on stage to hand out door prizes! Everyone in our family helped out though. Clay and Paul were ushers and I helped in props and such. I also took photos and made a DVD for the cast. Our family enjoys being able to share this time together and we have a blast doing it.
I have another epidural this Thursday. Hoping it's less painful than the last one and does more good.
Chickie started fall softball last week. She did really well for it to be her first time facing a player pitcher. He plays every Tuesday thru October in White Bluff.
Not much has panned out with the Disney travel, but I continue to pursue!

Softball starts again

Chickie decided to play a little fall ball. Tonight was the first game of the season and it went pretty well. It was the first time she ever faced a player pitch and she held her own for the most part. She has been playing right field and likes it ok, this after I just pain $120 for her own catchers gear, of course.
Zachary has his first play with his advanced acting class this weekend. The play is The Princess and the Pea. I haven't seen one rehearsal but Paul says he is great in it.
Church youth group is working on a cookbook for PET-Memphis. Hope we get it done in time to sell for Christmas.
Had an epidural last week, it was the worst one I've ever had. It hurt so bad I almost jumped off the table! However, I so think my leg pain may be a little better. Doc said he could see scar tissues on MRI and he targeted the nerve closest to it. Sure hope it works.
I got a "we aren't hiring right now" from2 companies. I think that's just an easy let down for we have better candidates. Oh well, I have a few more to go so we will see.
Last but not least, 94 days til Disney

Still with the back?

The neuro says, lets try some more epidurals. Well they didn't work before, but ok. I get my first one Friday morning. I have to be there at 7 AM. YAY. I am notsure how tey do epidurals after a fusion but the nurse assured me that there was still an epidural space between my vertebrae. Gotta get the pain gone before Disney. There are only 102 days til we leave. Yes, I am already counting down!
Zachary's birthday party is Saturday moring. I am sure that I will feel like making cupcakes and poison apples Friday evening! But bring on the kiddos and Disney Villains. We are having octupus hot dogs, Ursual cupcakes, and bobbing for poison apples. It will be grat fun, no matter how bad my back hurts!
