It's been a week ! My workshop went well, but ended after 10:00 pm last night. I can't seem to get enough coffee to open my eyes this morning.
First things first:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY -- CHARLES!
It's not the best of weeks for celebrations, unfortunately - but we're planning a bit of 'relaxation' this weekend!
Mom: Improving .... today she gets out of bed and walks. She's taking solid food and sounds stronger each day. She'll be released Friday and we'll determine if she'll need homecare prior to her leaving the hospital.
My granddaughter - Still have a bit of trouble with fever and a cough that won't quit - and she's had yet another visit to the doctor. BUT, both she and my daughter slept through most of the night -- the first time in weeks -- so today everyone is feeling better.
My brother-in-law is feeling better after his surgery -- and has gone in to work. He's been saved from a major heart attack, according to his doctors, and so he'll be on a new diet, new medications, and will be encouraged to change his lifestyle. But all in all - improvement.
And the sad news: Rebecca's husband Ken passed on last night. I spoke to her this morning, and she's doing quite well -- she's in the process of making funeral arrangements. She has a huge extended family, and since Ken ministered to several churches, this is going to be an especially busy and exhausting time for her. We'll probably make the viewing Thursday; I'm not sure about the funeral on Friday ... but everyone is relieved that his suffering is past.
Thank you all for your kindest of prayers, comments, support.
