Ronee' writes in her journal.

Friday, December 22, 2006 (in three days I will be fourteen years old!!)~

Dear Journal~

Hi! This is your friend, Ronee'! I am doing better; I was in the hospital, but now I am out, and I am feeling a lot better. I had a flare up of my JRA, and I also had trouble breathing (the JRA affected the lining around my lungs, and it made them hurt), but I am now okay, thank goodness. I am now on some new medication, and it seems to be helping; don't seem to be hurting nearly as much.

I am also getting my appetite back; I always don't have a good appetite when I am in the hospital: hospital food is nasty, and I eat very little. But when I am home, I eat like a horse! LOL

Johnny, my brother, was in the hospital, too; he got out just a few days ago, and he is feeling pretty weakened himself. He went in for nearly three weeks because his heart acted up (tachycardic, or rapid, heart beat), and he had trouble breathing. He was in the ICU for a while (about a week), just so the doctors and nurses could keep an eye on him; whenever the heart acts up in any way, it is always serious news, and they wanted to make sure that Johnny was going to be okay. (He went in on December first, and I went in on the ninth.)

Maman and daddy spent a lot of time with us at the hospital; well, daddy went home so he could take care of the kids and keep our friends/family informed about how we were doing, but maman stayed at the hospital 24-7. She'd do her shift from six in the morning until 2 in the afternoon, then she would visit us when she got off until visiting hours ended at nine. She'd then sleep in the waiting room, which wasn't too far from my room, and visit us again in the morning.

Maman and daddy may be adopting again: the adoption agency called to tell them about three kids, a little boy from Iraq (Emir), a little boy from India (Habir Vijay), and a  little girl from China (May Fong). There was also a call about a little girl from Vietnam (Huong). While I secretly hope we get one (or all) of the kids, I think maman and daddy have enough kids already; after all, I have fifty-four brothers and sisters! YIKES! LOL

Maman is still writing her letters to her friends, and she is still busy with the adoption community in addition to working millions of hours at her job at the hospital. Personally, I wonder how she does it, and I wonder if she even sleeps! Maman  must be part Energizer Bunny; she just keeps on going and going and going---LOL

Daddy is busy working at Wal*Mart; right now he hates it because he is working double shifts, and by the time he gets done, he is in a world of hurt. When he comes home from work, he is bent over like a broken twig, and he is in a great deal of pain. In fact, when I see him hobbling in the front door on his crutches, I see the pain in his face, and it makes me hurt!

Well, Journal, I think it is time I put this to bed. I will write in here again soon (maybe on Christmas Day!). Take care, and God bless; have a very merry Christmas and a happy, healthy, prosperous New Year's!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend, Ronee' Le-Anne Reaux.

P.S.: The next time I write in here, I will be fourteen years old! This is the last time you'll hear from me as a thirteen year old! :)

Dear Readers and Fellow Authors~

May each and every one of  y'all have the merriest of Christmases and the brightest of New Years! God bless you all mightily, and know that I love each and every one of you!

~(((HUGS))) and much love from the Lone Star State, your Texas friend, Karen Lynn. :D

Remember the real reason why we celebrate CHRISTmas: the birth of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ! :)

I agree with you whole heartedly, Miss Thirteen Year Old (and Karen!) - Hospital Food is Very NASTY!!! Merry Christmas to you, and to that HUGE family of yours!
Reviewed by Karla Dorman, The StormSpinner 12/22/2006

Glad Ronee (and you!) are on the mend. But, unlike Ronee, I wouldn't want to add to the already HUGE family...Louie doesn't have much time as it is! How could she spread her love much thinner??

Well done,

(((HUGS))), love and Merry Christmas, Karla.
