Garth On Hold

I know that you are waiting anxiously for my Garth photos but, something came before Garth the last two days.

Kaycee - great granddaughter - one of the twins that was born three months premature has been in the hospital.  NO, she's not in jail!!  LOL

She woke up Monday morning with 104 temp and was rushed to the hospital.  They admitted her with pneumonia - they thought.  Later in the day, another physician diagnosed her with a lung disease associated with the steroids used to develop her lungs as a preemie.

Then today, the lung specialist came in and basically said it was like asthma????  Her lungs have scar tissue from the drugs given her as a preemie and she had some kind of a virus and that's where it landed.

But, good news is that she is home and doing well.  She will just have to have alot of breathing treatments and inhalers.  You hate to think of a baby going thru that starting this young, but if they would not have used the drugs, she wouldn't even be here today.

They will be doing tests on Laycee also because she probably has the same thing.

But, tonight, she is home going strong.

Now, to Garth!!!!!

OMG - it was an awesome concert going about 2 1/2 hours of constant songs - mostly oldies but goodies. I told Tiffany it's kinda crazy to buy seats and then stand up the whole time but the electricity in the room made you stand and clap and sing the whole show.

I think it's rather rare that every song he sang the whole audience sang also - every word to every song.  Everyone knew his songs - the young and the old alike.  The bottom left photo was "The Dance" and everyone had their phones lit up. 

Tricia was very good also.  Garth had done back-to-back concerts on Saturday night so he was a little hoarse, but he was still SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good!

So, if I can get my hands on tickets for this next weekend, I would go again in a heart beat.  We had great seats and the big screen TVs were wonderful.

OK, Judy, now calm down and get back to normal.




  1. Oh my, I am so glad that little Kaycee is doing better! How scary! We do thank God for the wonders of modern medicine, but those side effect can be tough! Happy she's home! That must have been a great concert! I'm never seen him in concert, sounds fun! Glad you were able to go and Enjoy! Blessings, Cindy

  2. Thank God for His many mercies. Kaycee is so precious.
    I am so happy that you got to see Garth. You look as if you are having a great time.
    Bless you, Regena

  3. Poor little baby Kaycee, I hope the treatments prove to be successful and the asthma manageable - what a scary thing for any parent to have to deal with. So glad you enjoyed the concert - your whole face, beautiful smile says it all!

  4. Oh so glad little Kaycee is doing better and home. How scary, but good news to know what is going on. Looks like the concert was wonderful. Great pics and so glad you had a special time!! Love your smiling face!!

  5. I hope that all will be well with the little ones and that it is something that can easily be treated/dealt with. Soooo glad that Garth was good!!! It sounds utterly amazing. It is so great when they play the songs that you know and love and that everyone can join in isn't it! You look so happy! Yay for Garth and fun! xx

  6. So glad your little one is better. And what a fun time you had!!

  7. OH NO:( I don't like it when babies are sick! I will be praying for all! GARTH... awesome! My daughter said the same thing about the concert! Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

  8. Judy, first of all, I am sorry to hear about your little grand being in the hospital, but I am glad they figured out what it was. SO thankful she is out of the hospital and home. Hope all is well with the other twin and that both girls remain healthy and happy.

    And what great pictures of the concert! How great that you got to go!

    Sending love,

    Sheila :-)

  9. Glad your little darling is doing better, Judy! That must have been scary. Poor thing!

    Yay for the Garth concert! I'm so happy you had a great time.


  10. So sorry about your little one. Lots and lots of the kids I see have this type of thing from the treatment they received as preemies. Many of them end up outgrowing it so that is a positive. Little Buddy had it too and now rarely uses his nebulizer, actually he hasn't had to use it for a year.
    Hugs and so glad you had fun at the concert.

  11. So happy Kaycee is doing better and now they know about the lung issues they can be on the lookout for any issues that might crop up. Now Garth! I am so thrilled you got to go and enjoy! He is AWESOME!!

  12. So glad to hear that Kaycee is doing better. Looks ans sounds like you had a great time at the concert.

  13. So glad the babies are starting their treatment and are okay! Also so glad that you had fun! You deserve it! XO

  14. Oh that sweet little baby, is adorable. So scary but I am glad she is doing better. You look like you are having fun. Good for you.

  15. I am so sorry that your granddaughter was hospitalized but thank God that we have the treatments available today that we have. It is always scary to see them there.
    Glad you enjoyed the Garth Brooks show. I can't bear to listen to The Dance without crying.....xo Diana

  16. How frightening when one of the little ones gets sick like that...I guess the good part is that she was properly diagnosed in the end ...glad that you got to enjoy Garth :)

  17. Judy so sorry to hear about Kaycee. Glad they found out what was going on and were able to help her. Poor little thing. Just glad to hear she is better. OMG! with Garth how exciting for you. I am so thrilled you got to go and had a great time. Hope you can snatch some tickets for this week end too.

  18. I'm so glad Kaycee is home now and doing good better, and that continues. I am so pea green with envy you got to see Garth, gosh I just love him and I would of been standing the whole concert myself, how could one sit!

  19. How wonderful to get out and enjoy yourself, Judy. So glad you enjoyed the concert.

    That sweet baby ... glad she's on the mend. Our daughter was born premature and was in the hospital the first month of her life, due to her lungs being under-developed. She's had a few issues through the years, used breathing machines for a season when she was a youngster, but she is is well today, at the age of 28 and soon to have her first child. I'll keep your little ones in my prayers.

  20. What a wonderful experience you have had. Those are the kind of memorable concert that have good memories forever.

    I hope that the little one continues to feel better.


  21. I hope and pray that your sweet Kaycee continues to improve every day. What a little sweetie she is. The concert sounds like it was so much fun. The Dance is my all time favorite Garth Brooks song and after all these years, I still can't listen to it without crying. Now that's a song!!

  22. I;m so glad that they know what was wrong with Kaycee and can fix it. She is darling Judy.
    I am so glad that you had a terrific time seeing Garth. Please keep us posted on how Kaycee is doing. God Bless.

  23. Judy, thank goodness Kaycee is doing well; that must have been very scar for all of you, especially when the diagnoses kept changing!

    I can feel your excitement for Garth all the way to Greece!! The concert looks like an amazingly entertaining night!


  24. How scary. I'm happy she is doing better and it is good that they are looking at her sister too. The concert sounds like it was great fun. xoxo

  25. HI Judy! Oh, poor little Kaycee but so glad to know she's doing much better! She is so cute too. I'm so glad you got to go see Garth and to hear your excitement! Yay for you! Thank you, sweet one, for popping in to see me and your kind words.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  26. Oh, that must have been scary with the baby! I'm glad they were able to figure out what the problem was, so she is able to have treatment. I will keep her in my prayers...
    I'm glad you were able to go to the concert...it really does look like a great time! Thanks for sharing with us!

  27. I am so sorry to hear that Kaycee was in the hospital and now that she'll have to have an inhaler and breathing treatments. Poor little thing! I'm wondering how in the world do you teach a baby how to use an inhaler?! Phil had asthma when he was little, but he was diagnosed around age 5, so it wasn't too hard to teach him how to use the inhaler. So glad to hear you had such an awesome time at the Garth concert - you definitely needed and deserved some fun.
