Tuesday, October 26, 2010
Last Saturday was a beautiful day here in northern Minnesota. Sun was shining, sky blue and in the upper 50's. As we were out hunting garage sales we passed the Forest Hill cemetery where my family is buried. After the garage sales made a stop there for about 20 minutes to take some pictures.
It is such a beautiful cemetery with pond, ducks, geese and well maintained.
Will be posting some of the pictures from there over the next days and will post on http://www.findagrave.com/ if needed there.
Today for Tombstone Tuesday I am sharing the beautiful gravestone of
1869 - 1935
1881 - 1976?
Stone is dirty and could use a proper careful cleaning from someone who knows how to do it.
Went to http://www.ancestry.com/ and found

and for Sarah. Her death certificate says she died Feb 07 1976.
My search found no children listed, so do not know if they ever had children. So there they are in this beautiful cemetery and may not get any visitors other than me last Saturday. How sad will have to visit them another time while taking pictures in the area.
Thanks for stopping by.. Grace

Lesson from a 62 year old lady.. Listen to body and go to DoctorMy voice has been quite the last couple of weeks. Reason is I was very sick. Started on the 13th my 62nd birthday ( happy birthday to me ) . Started to have pain in my groin area. I am a stubborn lady and thought I had pulled a muscle. I am not very active so not sure how I could of done this. I laid in bed taking Tylenol for 1 week with ice packs.Finally got some sense and got out of bed. Went to urgent care, emergency room next and into the hospital. Next day I was in surgery and found I had an infection. Just the luck of the universe I guess. I spent 11 days in the hospital on pain pills and antibiotics. I am now home with a wound vac and will be like this for 2 to 3 weeks with going to out patient for wound changes three times a week.I am sharing this adventure to hopefully be a lesson to others. I hope that you are not as stubborn as I am and if not feeling well do not wait a week thinking all will be better. I was very ill with infection going down my leg. I am glad I went in when I did and had the brilliant young doctor's I had.So dear friends in blog land and face book. Listen to your body and go to doctor if not feeling perfect.And thank you to my family for visiting and for the little voices of my grandchildren who could not visit telling me " I love you grandma, get well" Nothing better than hearing those words.I am glad to be home.
