I'm gonna be a grandma, I'm gonna be a grandma!! Yep, Yep!! So, congratulations to Chelsea who is due on September 13! Wow, a grandma! She is making me a grandma at 40!! Did I just say my age? LOL Chelsea is doing very well. Just a little bit of nausea here and there and a little bit of apprehension. I just wish she wasn't in Florida and I was in Pennsylvania. I am going to have to figure out how to save enough money to get down to see her sometime after the baby is born. I wanted to help her out a little and see the little one. So, I think the baby is a girl. I said it here first! I really think so. So, yes, I am gonna be a GRANDMA!! Do you think I am excited?
I have been pretty darn sick the past couple of weeks with a chest cold and asthma attacks so I wasn't able to do "Wordplay" last Wednesday, but it will resume this Wednesday. I have been chastising myself all week for starting a game while I have been ill. Should I have done this again? I need to have a regular schedule. Regular posting times. I hate to confuse you guys. I have lost alot of readers already. I am so inconsistent with the "Up Close With Val" game as it is. By the way, I have not been able to purchase a USB cable for my camera yet and that is why I haven't posted that game in awhile. I do hope that life will slow down and my energy will pick up and I will be able to do both consistently after I purchase the cable.
John and Krissy are now at The Transplant Center. John has received four days of chemotherapy thus far. He will have two more and will get Wednesday and Thursday off and will have his transplant on Friday. He will be in Hershey for a couple of months. Thanks for your prayers and support, everyone!!

Senator Franken did the right thing - I don't feel happy about writing this. I don't have a song in my heart and I don't want to include another photo of Al Franken looking downcast as he exit...
