Its been a very crazy two weeks here—Thomas was in the hospital again, for his prostate problems. He had a rougher recovery this time too and still isn’t 100% well. He doesn’t want me telling the kids as he feels 2 out of 3 of them are too busy with their own families and the other one does is too far away to help So needless to say he missed work which added to both of our stress loads
this week he is ready to work and there isn’t as much as he would like
Maisie has changed so much in the 6 weeks we didn’t see her, we went to brunch there on the 29th, Her eyes are no longer blue but brown, She should get out of the cast later this week. Then she will be in an adduction brace for another 7 weeks or so but it won’t limit her nearly as much. Spending time with her is priceless
Our Alabama daughter, Debb’s surgery is the 14th, she has pre op tests this week—I am a total wreck over this because I can’t be there, but thankfully she has Chad. Sunday was Chad’s birthday—last week they drove Columbia to her friend in Florida’s and then this past weekend went back to get her. Its a long enough drive from AL to FL that they had to spend the night each time.
I have been my usual wreck—-panic attacks, leg cramps, and lots of totally sleepless nights. The night he wound up in the hospital (the same day we saw Maisie) we never got any sleep.
Saw My brother steven, his wife emily, my niece amelia,my sister joanne and brother in law bob Sunday at Steven’s They have two russian exchange students living with them this month next month they will have two more from China Emily has applied to teach in China next summer so that she can take Amelia there and show her where she comes from—they are also seriously thinking about selling the house.
lots and lots of knitting has been happening, all shawls in pretty yarns and gorgeous beads, Word Presss seems to have changed the way you add pictures so I don’t know if I will ever figure it out.
Today the oppressive heat is getting to me, I want tea but it is just TOO hot and we have no ice. What a quandary!!!
Hoping things are well in your world.
