Saturday So Sad

Oh it's so sad when parents of children can't get along civilly. It's always the child who suffers. It's so sad there are so many children out there who don't have the opportunity of growing up in a home with a mother and a father. Children having children, the cycle is never ending.

Adam unfortunately is one of those statistics. My sweet, handsome, polite, funny, wonderful, amazing, super smart, precious grandson.

His mother (A) and my son just can't seem to get along. Court hearings are scheduled again, let's hit it where it hurts. They want more money. For Adam, no he lacks nothing, we make sure of that. For themselves, maybe, but more to hurt my son. A is getting married next month and makes sure we all know she thinks her new guy is more of a dad to Adam then my son. I disagree, Adam loves his daddy.

This could lead to my son seeking full custody (he lives here half a year anyway) and A is not happy about that. This means she may not let him come here like he does now. Let's punish Adam, it's just awful. He isn't coming this weekend, they say he is sick. I don't know if I believe them, they have had no problem sending Adam here sick in the past.

This video was taken last week, he had so much fun free falling. It starts out dark, but then I turn on the light. I was looking forward to more videos this weekend.

Ok that's off my chest. If you are a praying person, court is July 30th. Thanks.

Now onto other stuff...

Monday I saw the dietitian at the surgeons office and she was please to see I have lost 13 pounds since I started the surgery process. She liked that I was still following Weight Watchers Core plan and that I have started changing my eating habits, smaller bites, chewing longer, drinking slower etc. She also said it is possible for me to have a hysterectomy done at the same time if my OBGYN is in agreement, this would be an answer to prayer.

Tuesday I had the mammogram and ECHO done

Wednesday water therapy... but by them the flu was attacking me full force. I also needed IRON due to the never ending TOM. But praise God no transfusion, we caught it in time.

Thursday I was able to de-clutter several things from my house and it was so good. Such a relief. I still have more to do but just this is a weight off my shoulders.

Friday I rested most of the day but I did test knit the dishcloth I designed for the Breast Cancer calendar for 2009. I can't wait to see all the other new designs being donated. Not sure if I am allowed to post a picture of it yet, so you might have to wait until January to see it.

Today (Saturday) I slept in until 9am. And I feel much better. I have been working on this blog post since Noon and it's already 2pm. Got sidetracked by several phone calls mostly from A and this court stuff. My eyes are sore and swollen from crying, almost feels like a sunburn. Just a bad situation all around. Adam heard me on the phone and came on and said he wanted to come see me, he started crying cause they said he was sick and couldn't come. He said "I feel better, I go see Nana now?" Maybe I can get him Wednesday after water therapy. I really miss him. Guess until then I'll just have to keep watching this video.

Tomorrow I'll post some pictures of finished projects and stuff.

Thanks for hanging in there through this run down of my week.

Remember comments will still get you an entry in this weeks prize of two patterns from Harvest Moon.

See you all tomorrow.

Mat 18:5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.

Aww...AK, I am so sorry to hear about all that drama. I will be praying for you all.

I wish we could share our breast cancer cloths's so hard not to post a photo. Maybe they'll let us share the pics soon...just not the patterns of course.

I hope you're feeling better and congrats on the weight loss. You're doing great.

The situation is definitely in my prayers!!! I hope you are feeling better soon! :)

Jane said...

My prayers are with you! It really is so sad when parents use a child to punish and it happens so much. I am sure A won't keep him away from you for long, after all you are her free babysitter! The video is so cute. Is that your voice in the background? Now I really feel like I know you!

Hugs...hope and pray everything works out!
Keep up all the great work with your weight loss. Feeling better makes it all worth it :)

That's such a shame--putting Adam in the middle like that. I just wish parents would realize that in situations like this, that it is THEIR situation and not the child's. The child is an innocent bystander and needs to be loved and protectd at all costs.

I'm sure glad Adam has you to love him so much.

Hopefully, you can see him this week!!

i never understand why a parent would feel the need to use their children to punish the other parent. it's so not fair. *hugs* i hope this gets resolved favorably!!!!!!

Bubblesknits said...

I'm so sorry to hear all that. I'll definitely keep Adam and your family in my prayers. I know how much my two littles love their Nana and Grandma and the thoughts of taking away their time with either of them is just not a thought I'm willing to entertain. Many hugs to you.

i am so sorry to hear about the problems. It is never easy for anyone involved but you are right, it is the children most who suffer.

Wildflower said...

I am sorry to hear about the problems there.

Wendy said...

Many many prayers and hugs your way.........I know it is tearing you to pieces..we have had the same kind of situation in our family for about 8 yrs now...and it is no good for anyone especially the child....
BIG HUGS......

That just irks me when people punish the children! UGH! I hope it will be resolved quickly for the best for Adam! Big Hugs! :D

You and Adam are in my thoughts and prayers!

My heart aches for you and with you. I haven't seen my 2 granddaughters in almost 5 years. Their mother was so vindictive she accused my son and us of endangering and mentally abusing the girls and the judge believed her without even attemping to know the truth. Praying you will have a much better outcome and that Adam will be in your arms.

i am praying for you and yours and hope that this whole court mess goes fast... it's bad enough to have Adam in the middle but even worse to have it drag on and on and on... glad you are feeling better and cant wait to see your projects you talked about.... oh i LOVE the video... no fear... gotta love that stage...

It's so awful that Adam was used as a weapon like that! Hope you're managing to have a better week this week.
