Happy Birthday Donna


Today is my bride Donna’s birthday, she is doing a little better with her  breathing and putting a little weight on, I was going to take her out to dinner ,but she said she just didn’t feel up to it, yesterday I took her to the DMV to renew her license and she said she felt self conscious about still having her boot on her leg, she said she can’t wait until she is out of it and can look girly again.I can’t blame her as it takes a bit of effort to get around so may be two days in a row is a little much.

I know I have been neglecting our blog but I have basically been staying around the house since Donna has been housebound, I may start taking Rigg’s for rides since he loves his Dad’s truck and Donna’s breathing is getting better.

The Grandkid’s are getting bigger starting with Adam he will by 15 Sept 8th

Last weekend on Saturday was Sam’s 50th high School Reunion in Scranton Pa. Since I didn’t want to leave Donna I was unable to attend, I had matching tee shirts made for Donna and I,her is a pic.

As I said Donna is slowly doing better, her breathing has improved and she is just looking better rather than sickly like she was before, although she said no pictures yet. she has put some weight on and is eating better. next week she is going to the bone doctor and we are hoping she will have the boot removed from her leg and maybe start a walking therapy that she can handle with her shorter breaths.

That’s about it for now hope all is well with all out blog friends. Be safe out there.. Sam & Donna…..


  1. So good to here that Donna is doing better and getting some weight on. I had totally forgotten about here leg. I bet she is looking forward to getting that boot off. I hope things go well for her at the doctor's.

    Wow, Adam has sure grown up since we last saw him. You have great looking grandkids and ones to b proud of for sure.

    Have a very Happy Birthday Donna and I hope you get that birthday dinner when you are more up to going out and enjoying it.


  2. Happy Birthday Donna. So glad to hear that you are starting to feel better. Love and hugs from Ron & Ali

  3. You have such a great family! So glad Donna is feeling more human...Tell her she looks girly all the time!!!

  4. Happy Birthday Donna. And so happy to read you are doing better. Wishing you a much better year.

  5. Happy Birthday! When you get approval from the DMV, you know things are looking up:)

  6. Happy Birthday Donna. Listen to what the doctors tell you by not over doing it. Due to the breathing issues walking in conditioned air environments would probably be the best.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.
