It has been a crazy week! I really have debated on writing this post, because this last week has been hard!
Emer turned 8! I actually have a post dedicated to her, but I haven't been able to finish it up. Maybe one day! :) She had a good birthday. Then on that same day (the 23rd) we had a big Steve Murphy family get together. It is always fun to see all the bros and sisters! We missed some this year.. Hopefully next year we can all get together!
On the 24th morning, my Gramps woke me up at 5 because my Grams was feeling really sick. So I ran up to check on her, and immediately called 911. She was having a heart attack. It was a scary morning, and scary day. We figured that she had 2 heart attacks before Gramps woke me up then had two more while I was on the phone with 911, then she had 2 more at the hospital. NO FUN! We were all really worried. I was sure this was going to be the worst Christmas ever! BUT, after some quick surgery she was on the mend. Well I guess as well as can be mended. I got to bring her home on the 26th!
Christmas was okay! I didn't take one picture because I was taking only video so my Grams would be able to see all of the morning fun! All of the kids got so many things! It really was a true blessing that we were able to have a good Christmas.
This last week has been tough. I must say that my Grams really runs a tight ship! I have been doing her regular things each day, because she is on a NO work order from the docs. Let me tell you, every night I hit the pillow and I don't MOVE until 7 am the next morning.

I am so grateful that everything worked out for the best this Christmas. I'm so grateful that my Grams is alive. There was a point where I thought for sure it was her time. I wasn't ready for that, so I am glad the Lord has let her stay for a bit longer. I'm sure my Gramps is really grateful too.
