Mommy is back at the nursing home and is being followed by Vitas Hospice. She seems stable for now. However when it rains it seems to pour! While dealing with Mom's hospitalization 2 weeks ago we learn that my husband's closest family member, Vickie his cousin was sick and was given 2 weeks to live. She passed away early this morning in Atlanta only 6 days after her prognosis. Oh boy! At the same time of course our hearts our breaking for the families of Sandy Hook victims! We can't understand much at this time but look to our faith in Father God and the presence of the Holy Spirit to give us comfort and sustain us during these most difficult of situations.  Blessings and comfort, Jan

I Miss Santa Blue!

I feel sorta blue today. I was looking at my archives and ran across Santa Blue and realized that I miss the rather elegant old fellow! I hope he has a Merry Christmas with his new owners at their home in the mountains.

Just Checking In

Hi everyone! I am over that horrific norovirus and now am spending more time on the hospice unit with my mom. I will not be working on any projects for a while because as one can imagine this situation is very draining. Keep us in your prayers! Constance thank you for the lovely email! Teresa I know you understand that your package is going to be after the holidays. I want it to be perfect but I am unable to focus on much other than my mommy! Stay safe and well guys. There are a lot of crazies out and about this time of year! Much love, Jan

Challenges, Challenges!

Oh Boy! Mommy has had a rapid decline and is in the hospital with a hospice referral. The doctors say she could have as few as 2 weeks or as much as 6 months. She has stage 5 dementia, 4-5 mini heart attacks, renal kidney function at 20% among other things. There was an outbreak of norovirus at the nursing home  (a nasty old stomach virus) and of course she was a victim. And guess who got it from her? Yours truly! It's horrible! So I have to take some time off to recuperate. Pray for us because there will be no Christmas festivities, just a conscious  acknowledgement that for the love of Jesus we are able to pull through! Love, Jan
