2/12/2012 UPDATE: So here's the thing. Hubby & I are getting a divorce. I'm not advised to blog during this time so... Still on hold here. Will blog again when I can, I miss it so dearly. :)
I can still be reached via email: theunexpectedworldofmommyhood@gmail.com Thanks everyone for your prayers and support at this time. The going is tough, but I am tougher and know a better future is waiting. ~ Meg :)

My grandpa is sick. He was checked into the hospital this weekend with pneumonia but.... they are checking into other things... They are basically running a ton of tests on him because the pneumonia only showed in one lung which is usually an indicator of lung cancer.... I will let you know what happens with all that. Please keep him and my grandma in your prayers. I know she must be scared out of her mind... She married him at age 18 (he was a scandalous 13 years older) after exchanging letters with him for almost a year. My grandma is from Trinidad, my grandpa from Philly. They met when she visited her aunt, who lived across the street from my grandpa's family. They have been happily married ever since with six of seven children still living & over forty grandchildren & eight great-grandchildren.

So please: prayers if you got 'em, best wishes if you don't pray, just please send a good thought into the air for my grandpa but especially for my grandma who will really need our support if this is "it". Thank you.

Easter was fun/okay/stressful (...one of my kids urinated out the side of her pull-up onto a kneeler at Mass...) and I have pictures to share (not of the urinated-on kneeler) .... but this stuff going on with my grandpa really has my mind otherwise occupied so... yeah. That's all for now. 

I'm hoping I feel inspired to blog later on. I miss you guys. Thanks for understanding.
