    It's a boy! A big boy! He weighed 9 lb 13 oz. Jack was 2 1/2 lbs bigger than his big sister weighed at birth. I'm so happy to have a grandson! He's a hairy little guy. His bushy eyebrows run into his hairline. He has sideburns, a hairy back and even a hairy butt. He was born at 6:02 pm yesterday and left the hospital 25 hours later.

    What a handsome little (big) guy! How exciting that Jack (I like the name) arrived safe and sound. My newest grandson is referred to as Baby Chunk, while my newest granddaughter is tiny. They come in all sizes, for sure.

    Just a quick hello. I was released from the hospital yesterday after more than 2 weeks. My first PT session is this afternoon, then I hope to get reacquainted with my new laptop.

    Pam, what a beautiful baby! Congratulations.

    More later. Hugs

    Pam he is so cute. COngratulations on your new grandson. Such a big guy. So glad to hear everyoe is doing well.
    Lynne so glad to hear you finally got out of the hospital. Was it the original plan to stay that long? Wow I hope it wasn't too bad. You will have to give us details. Pt is one of those necessary evils. I haven't been stretching this week and I can tel when I go up and down the stairs.
    I leave for Hilton Head in the morning. Can't wait. My flight leaves at 6:00 AM. It takes about 1 hr and 20 minutes to get there. I guess I am getting up pretty early. It will be a fun trip.

    @IrishRose, well . . . my feet were barely able to do the Zumba class this morning. LOL I was literally going the wrong way many times. But at least I kept moving and I definitely broke a sweat. Too funny about the yoga pants being the right size for a child. I had a gift card for Macy's and found a nice pair there after Christmas. They're too thick for summer so I need to look for something lighter. I hate clothes shopping!

    I'll have to try the Dove chocolate trick. I think I might be able to do that.

    @Pam - he's beautiful!!! My, he really does have a lot of hair.

    Leann, glad you're home and hope you are not having too much pain. Good luck with the PT.

    I have never done Zumba and have no coordination at all so I would not even attempt it. I think it is great you are doing it and obviously you are getting the benefits as you are sweating.

    Leann, how is it going since getting home? Is your hubby able to take care of both you and your son?
    I didn't get out much to walk last week with my walking buddy on vacation and then the new grand baby being born. We went to Sparta over the weekend. Hubby and DD rode 40 + 20 miles on their bikes. They are training for the bike ride across Iowa in July. I was their pick up person but managed to visit 3 quilt shops. That part was fun!

    Ok, just checking in. Been out of town the 12 of the last 15 days. Leaving again in a few minutes for another week.
    Congrats on the new grandson!!!
    I have Grand baby number 6 due in 7 weeks. A girl. It will even the score with 3 girls and 3 boys.
    I have not lost anything this month.
    I do want to be in for July but will not be back in town until the 6th or 7th.


    My newest Grandson, Caleb Austin, was born May 29th. I am now Grandma to 4 precious babies. I am so blessed!!!!

    Hello Friends,
    Everyone sounds so busy. With my knees, Zumba was never an option for me. If that weren't enough, I'd sit on the sidelines with AnnaQuilts since we have no coordination. I would just look goofy.

    Gayle, sounds like you are having a fabulous summer. Stay safe.

    Pam, thanks for asking about my DH. He is amazing. A better cook than I, a better housekeeper than I. Poor thing has been run ragged. Last Thursday he had to get our son in Austin for a cardiologist appointment right next to the hospital that I was in. 'Cept that his appointment had been bumped to Friday. I was finally discharged after dinner on Thursday. What a circus. We have learned this month that my son & I share the same unique, abnormal (but normal for us) EKG signal.

    meanmom, no, it was not planned for me to have such a long hospital stay. My insurance approved my staying between surgeries so that I could get PT. Once I was released after surgery #2, I was home less than 24 hours and they begged me to come back so that I could have PT over the weekend as my in-home care plans fell apart. I was in the hospital 18 days - I believe that if I added all the days I've been in the hospital in my life, it wouldn't come to 18 days. I did not go to a rehab facility with the first discharge, and then I was too healthy to qualify. What a wonderful label to carry.
    According to all my nurses, PT ladies, and doctors, they have never seen anyone do as well with one knee replacement as I have done with both knees replaced a week apart. One nurse calls me 'show-off' and my physical therapist calls me an overachiever. I finally took a shower today without any help. Baby steps.
    .
    And Pat, when I sent my last skinnies, I included a blue for July. I hope this agrees with your records. I didn't wanna take a chance on not being able to send my FQ.

    Wow I can't believe it is July already. Don't forget to PM me you loss for the month. Good luck everyone.
    The beach is wonderful. I have been for several long walks, it is so beautiful. We went to the gym this morning instead of water aerobics. I rode 45 minutes on the bike and lifted some weights. Then I was bad and ate a bunch of Cheeto's. One of my favorite foods in the whole world. They are almost gone which is a good thing. We are grilling steaks tonight and plan to rent bikes in the morning. It is so wonderful here. I will hate to go home.

    We were gone a long time yesterday with my trip to the Rhuematologist. I had gained a pound. He took down all my updated info, and said yes my cortisol was very low, and sent me to the hospital for a bunch of blood work. I think 11 vials of blood. He said I am not going to do very well losing weight until I find out what is causing my extreme fatigue. Most with autoimmune disorders have fatigue, but mine without taking Provigal puts me in the bed for periods of time, I usually take one each day, and then anything I am going to do I do it then, because I have about 30minutes to about an hour of being able to be at my sewing machine to sew. Other hand sewing I do is usually at night sitting in my chair. I will be going to my new Endocrinologist soon too, and I am thinking I have adrenal issues, and he said I have nodules on both sides of my thyroid glands. They are going to increase my prednisone. Due to this I am not going to be on the board to be on the contender for weight loss, but want to still check in all the time. I will also let you know how I am doing. I now feel like I shouldn't have even won that one month of fabric since everything for me has went down hill since then. I hope all of you do well. You are all in my prayers, and if you can keep me in yours. I will let you know how I am doing. If I do get help I need from the doctors I will be on for actual weight loss, but I won't run for any fabric after this, but enjoy seeing all who do win some beautiful fabric.

    Susan, you EARNED that win and that fabric. Keeping you in my prayers as it sounds like you are in quite a storm. Please keep us updated on how you are progressing.

    ( Taking 11 vials of blood probably induces fatigue on it's own.)

    Leann and Mary Christine, thank you both for your prayers, and kind words. Some of you girls on this board have been through quite a bit yourselves.

    Susan you worked hard to earn that fabric and you maore than deserve it. Hopefully doctors can figure out what is going on quickly so you can get back to normal activities. I am praying for wisdom for the doctors. At least stay on the thread and visit with us.
    I will be late posting the winner for June since I am on vacation in Hilton Head. It has been wonderful. I have eaten way too many goodies, but have done a lot of biking and walking so hopefully I haven't gained. I will be home late on Saturday and see how much damage I have done. My SIL talks about how healthy she eats and eats all kids of junk all day long. I sometimes follow her bad eating. She said she needed a high protien snack yesterday. Did you know that 2 Reece Cups is a nutritious high protien snack? I wish it was true, but I of course had one later. Don't forget to sign up over on the July thread and good luck to everyone.

    JuneBillie, good luck with everything and please keep us posted. My sister was sick for 1 1/2 yrs. She saw just about every kind of specialist and had every test imaginable, at least once and sometimes twice. They finally started treating her for Lyme's disease but said they couldn't be quite sure. She's had terrible symptoms, including fatigue. It's hard to keep managing your life when you feel like that. She seems to feel a bit better, so hopefully they've solved the mystery.

    Pat, thanks for sharing your SILs healthy tricks. Glad you're able to continue moving and exercising, though.

    Leann, you're doing great. Keep it up!!!

    I forgot to post the winner. I am all mixed up just getting back from vacation. The winner for June is Coffeegirl, with a loss of 4.7 pounds. COngratulations, great job. I only heard from a few people on their loss. Hopefully we will do better in July.
    AnnaQuilts lost 14.6 pounds but can't win 2 months in a row. Awesome job.

    I've been doing better with healthier choices and cooking. My new favorite vege: snip just the ends off of green beans - leaving them long (I usually break them into 1" pieces). Pan fry in garlic and olive oil. Add some diced Canadian bacon (or skip this). Keep tossing/stirring them until they're cooked just right, not hard, not mushy.

    I'll have to skip the Zumba class this week but will try to get back to the gym.

    Me? you're kidding! It hardly seems fair when Anna lost over 14! I did also have to give up a month's win because I couldn't win 2 months in a row, so I guess it all comes around in good time. thank you so much!

    It is encouraging to me to see people loose smaller weights over a months span. I think my crazy weight loss is coming to an end and I need to press on not to gain it all back. I am kind of scared to get to or close to my goal and then I need to try and maintain. I hope maybe some of you will be there also when I arrive. I will need encouragement and support then too. Keep up the good work coffeegirl! Congratulations on a well deserved win.
