Clowning Around

Hello friends. I have so much to tell you but it will have to wait. Part of it has to do with clowns. I am posting this picture in hopes you could tell me if the long spiky flower with the little pink blossom is a weed. And unfortunately you can hardly see them. I pulled these out of my iron kettle before I planted the impatience. They grew back. I think they are crowding my impatience but they are pretty. I have not seen these grown any place else in my yard. They kind of remind me of bridals veil.

But more important is this update:
Landon has been doing amazing. They are calling him a miracle child. Since my last post, Landon had been released from Children's with a bad concussion. His heart looked fine to one doctor but another one saw something. They wanted to wait til he had healed from the fall. Well two days after being home they found him again lifeless. CPR was started again but it didn't work. The squad came and took him to the nearest hospital. He had to be shocked twice then life flighted back to Children's. It has been determined it is a heart problem and it was the reason he fell. His parents want every one to know how thankful they are for the prayers. They are also asking for everyone to spread the word and pray for Landon. Tomorrow Landon will have a defibrillator inserted in his heart. This hopefully will save his life. I can't imagine this with a five year old, can you. So pray really hard tomorrow for him.
I don't know how Claudia and Laurie's husbands are. I need to find out. I do know that Claudia lost her beloved dog, Riley. He had been so sick and they were so dreading this.
So friends I must run but will be back soon with updates and to tell you what I have been up to.
XO

Life can be so very hard sometimes. I so hope he makes it. Yes, I've been crying all day for Claudia, as I know her heart is broken. Thanks for being both our friends. You, that is.

Hi Debby, I'm sorry about Landon having heart problem so young but I'm glad that they found out. I'll keep him and his love ones in my prayers. What a big worry this must be on all of you.

Losing a pet is losing a family member and is so difficult! So hard to bear.

I clicked on your flower photo to make it bigger, and I can see the spiky flowers you are talking about. Unfortunately, I don't know what they are, but I like them. They look kind of neat poking up through the impatiens.

Nan said...

Oh the poor little guy I do hope this procedure works for him and I will say prayers.

Tricia said...

Oh my goodness, that poor little boy...and his family too. I'll have him in my prayers.

You're such a thoughtful friend, Debby! I hope the little guy's situation turns around for the best. Don't know what your flowering plant is- I am far from being a "real" gardener! Hope to see some good pics of our workshop soon. xo Sue
