Latest Beaver Cabin pics, in random order

Matthew and Mike at Home Depot in Cedar City. Matthew loves going in w/ his daddy while I sit in the car w/ the bird, dog and kitties.

The master bathroom corner "garden" tub. Kim will have a jet tub in her bathroom, too.
The interior doors. I believe Mike said this is "alder" wood.
Front w/ the side covered porch. Can't wait for the stairs!

I was standing down the side of the hill to take this picture.

I encountered lots of deer pooh pellets while roaming around down the hill. They are eating all the little trees Mike planted.
My favorite spot on the porch. Such a fantastic view and breeze! We'll be putting a porch swing there on the end.
Dining room and living room area and Matthew's room up top.

View out the dining room window. The upstairs bathroom plumbing. Tim is doing a great job.
Guess we get the railing very last.
Me and my little green girl, Aimie... Matthew in the back seat. This is one spoiled parrot.
We had such fun time.
It was very muddy, we thought we were stuck when we first drove in. Rainy and cold the first couple days.
We had lots of good dinners and yummy Amish bread.

Update on Joel: He is checking out of the hospital right now as I type .... no one knows how or why this happened to him. He will have to go get blood drawn every few days ... then eventually once a week ... still has the clot in kidney, but he's on a blood thinner. He'll go back for more tests in six months. I feel sorry for him. To spend almost a week in the hospital, but not really have any answers.

Wood burning stove up and running!

We love that 8 inch stove pipe! We get great draft.

Our first fire.
We love how big the opening is... we could stick a stump in there!

New bedroom set w/ new shutters, too.

Notice the vanity and chair that Mike made for me out of maple... he stained it w/ pecan. How lucky did we get to find furniture to match!

We needed to say room for our girl, Aimie... her cage is her bed.

Pictures are all hung up now.

MRI/MRA went really well today... it was totally painless. I was home in an hour! I was sure to be the very first patient. My doc should get the results in the next couple days.

Going tomorrow for an MRI and MRA on the ole brainola.
I go in next Monday for an ultrasound on my carotid artery and I'll get an ECHO, too.

I am of course, WAY hoping it's just a crazy virus that as settled into the right side of my face. I am currently taking meds for that. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

I really need to be healthy and I need to stay healthy for my little Matthew.

I should know all results on Feb. 23rd. Had a bunch of blood tests, too.
