HAPPY BIRTHDAY SIS

This is my Sister Barbaba Jean Pimentel Green. Today is her 60Th Birthday.Born Jan.29Th 1949, We lost her July 3rd 2005. I wasn't going to add her Birthday wish to My Blog. Since the last entry was of my Moms ,(There Birthdays are 4 days a part,. And both have passed on) I don't want to be writing sad stories all the time. But I've come to the conclusion that I must post this. You see My Sister was and is very special to me. She being the oldest and me the "youngest"...... one would think we wouldn't have anything in common or be so close.Oh but we were.. I love my "BIG" Sister, All 4'11'' of her. She could hold her own to anyone who messed with her Family.Or her two daughters,Jeanette and Tammy.(Ive posted their picture's on my side bar. (Each one resembles their Mom, in their own way. )Barb could swear like a sailor on friday and Sing like an Angel on Sunday. Her and I would take road trips to See our Sister Bonnie in Placerville. (Two hour drive) And we would be talking the whole way.And before we knew it we were pulling into Bon's drive way Even though she had a yearly mammogram they didnt detect it in time .Barbara passed away from breast cancer . Now days Woman can request a sonogram which gives a more accurate screening. To the woman readers please get your mamograms done and dont hesitate to ask for the sonogram test...
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BARB...LOVE YOUR BROTHER JOHN

TREES,TREES........ AND MORE TREES

Hello everyone. I just got home from Spending four days with my Sister Bonnie. We had a great time. She is getting stronger everyday. We laughed and talked a lot. And hung out. Placerville is such a Beautiful place. Its a bout one hour east of Sacramento and maybe one hour west of Lake Tahoe. I drove up on Monday. and on Tuesday she felt like getting out. So her daughter Shannon came over (Shes almost eight months pregnant.) And Bonnie's Co-worker and one her best friends Terry, stopped by.All four of us drove to the store to pick out a new diet plan for Bonnie. Shes watching her sodium intake her salt,sugar, and calories pretty much a whole new diet, Her Husband Scott has been right beside her.He to has changed his diet so they can eat the same meals together.Then on Wednesday I drove Bonnie to her job so she could see all her co workers. Shes a Med tech at an Assisted Living Facility.They were all happy to see her and amazed at how well she looked. From there her and I found a nice little place to have lunch."The Balla" We ordered Oven roasted turkey,she had fresh fruit and a diet Pepsi,I had turkey and a side of minestrone soup.Very good. The best part was being able to sit there with my sister and spend time together, Shes a miracle.Blogger 's I want to remind you to go up to your spouse, your brother or sister, o a loved one. and just let them know how much you appreciate them.Here's some pictures from my trip.

Until Next time

:A HEART OF GOLD:


Hello everyone.I just wanted to say "Thankyou" for all the prayers...My sister has her surgery at 8:15a.m. this morning.Here is a picture of her heart.She had to have two stints put in one valve.Took a little over an hour.I was praying.And knowing that alot of others were praying as well.This experience is a life changing one for our whole Family.Thank God for saving her.I am forever greatful.Picture below is Bonnie having dinner last night.She looks alittle tired.But not bad considering everything she went thru.

Dr Shah was her Dr..at Sutter Memorial he was so good to her as well as all the Nurses there.Thank you Sugar Shack for posting it on the Prayer list.I told my Sister about it and she is greatful. Im back home and very tired.Im going to read your blogs now and call it anight.I will be going back up North on Monday to stay with her three or four days.So not sure when i can post.

PLEASE GOD HEAL THEM BOTH

Well here we go......AGAIN.The last entry was of my great get away trip to my Sisters Bonnies.I havent written since. On friday around 5:30p.m. Her husband Scott called me to say that Bonnie was in the Hospital.On thursday night she was having chest pains.So friday she went in just be safe.Turns out she had a slight heart attack .I cant believe Im writing this,Shes so active And I never would of imagime her having heart problems. So Friday her doctor rushed her to Marshal Hospital in Placerville where they shot dye into her and she had one artery blocked.So they had to put a stint in.I was at Church praying.She started bleeding out and had to rush her to Sutter Memorial.Scott called and said it doesnt look good.Shes got a 50/50 chance,I went into the Church office and dropped to my knees.Begging GOD from the deepest dept of my soul to please save her.I just lost my step dad six months ago to the same procedure,Im sure Bonnie was thinking of him the whole time.I could feel my mind slipping into a dark place. Losing three sisters and both parents in nine years it so hard.Not another Sister.Not Bonnie Shes my Rock.After and hour Scott Called and said they got her stable,critical but stable The dr. used all the blood that was on reserved and pumped it into her body.She They called code blue on her.Words you never want to hear.Dr. got in trouble for using all ther blood.Friday night they had to watch her every hour,Get her blood palets up to 12 and to stablize her Her blood pressure had dropped to 50. She made it thru thr night.I prayed like never befor all night.8a.m,. Scott called me and said vitals are stable they have a clamp on the arterie in her back that was bleeding and shes getting stronger.I cried out to GOD thank you God.I drove up yesterday to see my beautiful Sister sitting up talking and laughing.I just hugged her and kissed her forehead and am so greatful.She still has to have the stint on wed.This Dr will be doing it and should take about 15 mins.I am scared so please pray.I need them.Ive learned thru all my losses cherish and love your family and hold on to every moment.Tomorrow is not promised, And you know baby Shay has her surgery tomorrow morning.I never intended for my blogs to be so intense but it is what is.And I thankyou bloggers for helping me thru the hard times.Will post thursday or friday about Bonnie and Shaylynn,(and both will be fine in Jesus Name)

Weekend Get away







BON AFTER INTENSE NITE OF GAMBLING AND UNO PLAYING..................



Hello Everyone,Ive been away a little while.I took a much needed weekend away.My sister Trisha and I went to Placerville.About 45 miles east of Lake Tahoe.My Sister Bonnie and her husband Scott have a two bedroom cabin on two acres there.It was so nice.The drive up was a little foggy.Got there around 5p.m. That night my sister made dinner and then we watched amovie called Eagle Eye. Very intense movie, About the government controling everything cell phones,laptops street lites etc.its just crazy..Anyways It was nice to hang out, Saturday they took us to the new Indian Casino.Called Red Hawk(SHHHHH ,Dont tell Pastor or let him read this .LOL I didnt gamble???I went there for moral support.My sister Bonnie has an addiction to the slots...(wink wink.) I did win $42 on the penny slots.Then we went to visit my nephew Larry. He lives a little higher up,They had snow.(Something you dont see where I live.)We all sat around playing the new Uno game.I laughed so hard at my Sister Bonnie.The game made her a nervous wreck.she would scream every few seconds.I took lots of pictures for you all to see. And then I discovered a new setting on my camera called FORMATTING.So i pressed it.Dont do that.I lost over 300 pictures.Instantly,I was so angry at myself. Well you live and learn.Now Im home and been reading all your Blogs. I love reading The Chicken Chronicles, Yellow brick Road and of Course Sugar Shack, theres really to many to name.I enjoy all of yours.Im now share your stories with my family.Hope everyone is doing well. And stay dry..Please continue to pray for baby Shaylynn next tuesday is her surgery.


Until next time
