Friday Pretties and Jordan's Birthday

 The beautiful lilacs and cherry blossoms were a gift from a friend's garden.
They have to be placed high on a shelf though...
 because a certain kitty around here thinks that flowers
were created for his consumption :-)
 The scent is ♥ wonderful ♥
I'm joining Joyce for her sweet Friday Pretties Party.

I have an address for Jordan and I thought I'd
let you all know that he has a birthday coming up in about a week. 
For anyone that would like to write him an encouraging word 
or send a birthday card, this is where you send it.
NNMC
8901 Wisconsin Ave
Bldg. 10 Ward 5 East
Rm #17
Bethesda, Md. 20889-5601

If you want to, you can add Attn: Jordan M., although as long as you 
have the room number, it should get to him.
I'd love to see him overwhelmed with notes of encouragement, so thank you
to all of you who are considering writing him. We know it's a miracle
that he is able to celebrate this birthday.

Latest facebook update:
"Jordan is doing really good! He had a scheduled surgery this morning, no updates from that yet. But he had surgery Monday morning to cut away dead tissue from his left leg and drain fluids. They may work on his elbow a little today, they may not... He has a gaping wound on his elbow and his bone is exposed, his elbow is also fractured in several different places. So the doctors will be putting plates in his arm.

 Siblings and Jordan's son, Jay, will be going to Maryland SOON! Hopefully within the next week or so. Therapist said it would be best for Jay to be there with Jordan and the family to go through it with all of us."

Thank you again for your love and prayers for Jordan :-) 
Have a wonderful weekend!
Blessings,
Marcia

Thanks for posting the address, Marcia! I think you have the plus four in the zip code wrong. Amazon.com told me the plus four was 0001. I just left the plus four off my gift to him. Maybe you should take it out of the post to avoid confusion?

Hi Marcia,
Thanks for the birthday wishes for Lace. Hard for mommas to let our babies grow up!
Leslie is taking a break from blogging but she is still checking in on others. YOU were one she still wants to check on. She said she left you a message not too long ago? I'll let her know you were checking on her.
So very happy to hear Jordan's progress and news. What a blessing for your family. Thanks for the address. Please continue to keep us updated. He is a special young man! God is tenderly caring for he and all of you, his family.
Blessings for a great week...Our weather has been so wonderful the past few days. I've been soooooo enjoying all your pictures!
