Thankful G & H

I am quite late with this thankful post.

The darned kidney stones have had me in their clutches again for a few weeks...argggggh...


During that time, I was quite thankful for some good doctors, a close emergency room AND pain pills...


Hoping a quite recent CT scan will shed some light as to why this keeps happening every four or five weeks.

What I'm really thankful for this round of Alphabe-Thursday is...

Granddaughters Happily settling quite well into their new Irish lifestyle.  So far the kids in the new school are nice..."woolie jumpers' are keeping them cozy...there are neighbors with horses to ride...trips to castles...a big, green  yard filled with rainbows and exploration...

I had to combine my G and H post too! I am sorry, kidney stones must be awfully painful! I have had the flu and am having a bad day today! I am glad those pretty grands are having a wonderful new adventure. How blessed to have beautiful phamilies. God Bless You, wish you well! Hugs Anne

Your family looks beautiful and they are getting so big. I'm so sorry to hear about the stones. I hope they go away.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Hope you are better soon! I know that is painful. The Grands look so cute in their uniforms! Hugs!!

Ms. A said...

Kidney stones? OH.NO! Bless your heart! Hope they figure out what's causing them.

The kids look great and I'm glad they are adapting well. How are you adapting? I know you miss them terribly!

Pondside said...

Oh Jenny, BIG sympathy for the stones. I hope the medical people can find out what's going on and give you some relief. Your granddaughters are absolutely beautiful - little Irish Colleens.

Pam said...

Kidney stones! My God those things are awful. Speaking from experience you have my utmost sympathy. How exciting for the grands to be in Ireland - such lovely photos.

Gattina said...

Kidney stones ! That's awful ! Can't they be removed or at least dissolved ?
Your grandchildren look very nice in their new school uniform. Kids get used to a new environment more easily then adults !

I'm so sorry about your kidney stones, my friend had them and it was so painful for her. I hope they figure it out quickly.

New adventures for those beautiful girls! Isn't it wonderful to have the internet to follow along with them.

OH GIRL, hope those kidney stones leave you alone! I have never had one, but my Brother has and I know they are VERY painful! Have a restful and pain-free day dear Jenny, HUGS!

Amy said...

Oh dear, I have been away too long! But we are settling and finally have the internet so I am back!
Kidney stones? The grand littles have gone off to Ireland?! How are you doing??? I hope your doctors figure things out lickety split!

Margaret (Peggy or Peg too) said...

Kidney stones? Jeez woman. You've had enough physical ailments so it's time to stop. I said so!

Those grandchildren are just so damn cute and all that beautiful red hair in Ireland should make them fit in just fine. As would those smiles and beautiful faces. I can't wait until you go there - I bet it will be better than your trip to the caboose for you and Mr. Jenny. :-)

Lola said...

Hope you get better soon!

The grandchildren are so beautiful!

Lola said...

Me again!

Oops! Meant "Your" grandchildren - slip of the mouse!!

Janie Junebug said...

I hope they find a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. I'm so sorry about the kidney stones.

Love,
Janie

Holly said...

Where have I been? (not blogging, that's for sure!) I've had kidney stones and that is the WORST pain I have ever experienced...I can't imagine having them every 4 weeks. Praying for those nasty things to dissolve!
I've missed why the family is in Ireland, but it looks like so much fun! Hope you get to visit :)!!

Feel better soon!!

Jenny Short said...

Love the little girls. It is exciting for them to be in Ireland, a beautiful country.

I am sorry to hear about your stone. I knew something was wrong but didn't know what. I hope you can get rid of them, permanently. xo Jenny

EG CameraGirl said...

EW! Kidney stones. Yep I hope your doctors find the problem BEFORE we get to K for KIDNEY stones.

Leovi said...

Yes, precious pictures, I love that happy threesome and that rainbow!

Mrs. Adventure said...

Sending warm wishes your way I hope you get feeling better soon! Seeing the photos of your grand-littles makes me wish for another Ireland Vacation. Maybe we'll meet up over the rainbow and share a pint :o)

Hi Jenny,
So glad your family has gotten all settled in Ireland, what a fun
adventure. You are gonna love
going there, sure hope all this kidney stone stuff will be behind you soon. So sorry you are having such a time with it happening every
4-5 weeks. That is strange!
Will say some prayers that they can get to the bottom of it and you will get some permanent relief.
Blessings, Nellie

Jenny,
I'm so sorry you've been dealing with kidney stones. Drats….I've heard that is a hooooooorrrrrible feeling.
Prayers that you are feeling better.
Love seeing the girls in Ireland. Really, they LOOK like they BELONG there. Or is it just me??? I know your heart hurts (the distance is way too far) but I'm hoping they have a lovely time there.
Feel better.
XOXO
Suz

edenhills said...

Glad they are settling in so nicely. I do hope they can find a cause and a cure for those darn stones.

Pat Tillett said...

It's really good to hear that they are settling in over there. Love the photo! The girls all look Irish!
What a great adventure they are on.

Splendid Little Stars said...

so sorry! I hope you get some answers soon! and heal!

Your girls looks beautiful! good to know they're settling in and there are things to amuse them and look forward to.

Rita said...

Well, I am here quite late and I hope you are A-Okay, tip-top by now. :)

Sue said...

I'm glad they're adjusting well, but you must miss them like crazy!

We have a lot of kidney stones in our family. I hate them like no other. I've had to get lithotripsy a couple of times (where they blast the stones so they can pass). It's not much fun but it does the trick.

Hope you find relief soon!

Hugs.
=)

Betty said...

I'm going back and catching up a little tonight. I'm sorry you haven't been feeling well. My mother had kidney stones once and she said it was the worst pain she ever had. Hope you're doing better now!
