Life in the Fast Lane

Well sorry I have not been on line, Updates are the following. Baby Nolan is doing so much better I talked to Sara on Tuesday (May 13) and she told me he was eatting like a little pig. So we are very happy for that.

Mother's day weekend was a very busy one for me. YES flowers did sell well.

So Today an old friend of mine from Rexburg Idaho called. (Donna) and told me she had some Bad news. One of my old co-workers died. Ms Venna.

Venna Colleen Whittaker
Venna Colleen Whittaker, 54, of Lyman died at home Wednesday, May 14, 2008. She was born Nov. 9, 1953, in Rexburg, a daughter of Jacob Emmett Whittaker and Donna Mortensen Whittaker. She attended Madison County schools, graduating from Madison High School. She attended Ricks College. She was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She worked for 21 years in the Albertson's Bakery in Rexburg. She enjoyed reading, sewing, visiting friends and going for car rides. She is survived by three sisters: Ruby Whittaker, Cheryl Whittaker and Donita Whittaker, all of Lyman. She was preceded in death by her parents and two sisters. Funeral services will be held Saturday, May 17, 2008, at 11 a.m. in the Archer Ward LDS chapel with Bishop Dan Peterson conducting.

Ms Venna was one of the nicest people you would ever want to meet. She was so kind and never said a bad word about anyone or a bad word to anyone. It is something sometime you forget about some of the specail people in your life until they leave you.

Baby Nolan

Many have hear and some may have not I have a NEW Great Nephew Nolan James Weaver. Well Nolan is 3 weeks old and has spent the last 2 days in the Hospital because of a Pyloric Stenosis.

Pyloric stenosis is the narrowing of part of the stomach (the pylorus) that leads into the small intestines. This narrowing occurs because the muscle around the pylorus has grown too large. Most babies with pyloric stenosis begin to vomit during the second to third week of life. Babies begin with "spitting up" that turns into forceful projectile vomiting. The vomiting occurs after feeding.

pyloric stenosis is fairly common - it affects about three out of 1,000 babies in the United States. Pyloric stenosis is about four times more likely to occur in firstborn male infants. It has also been shown to run in families - if a parent had pyloric stenosis, then an infant has up to a 20% risk of developing the condition. Pyloric stenosis occurs more commonly in Caucasian infants than in babies of other ethnic backgrounds, and affected infants are more likely to have blood type B or O.

In a nut shell he has been in the hospital and has had to have a IV placed in his head and well he has lost most of the weight he has gained since he as born.

I am not so much worried about Nolan because he is well cared for by Doctors and Nurses But I am concerned about his dear mommy and daddy.

Big Sister is with there Mimi and well. Its just concerns me of how much one little body can take.

This Sunday in church we set it a side to fast once a month and my Fast will be focused on Him and his little family.

Any one that wants to join me in the fast you may do so and again thank you all for all your prayers for there little family.
