Monday, Monday . . .

Mike is going to make Chili today because it's supposed to snow tonight and tomorrow. Then it's supposed to get to 70 degrees by Saturday! I think we may be freezing some of the chili (at least I hope so).

Yesterday was a low key day for us. Today I have some laundry to fold, the wood floors to vacuum ~ again! ~ and a few other small things that need doing. I need to come up with somethng to make when the Chili is retired.



Lou Ann, I feel your pain ~~ and mine, because I would love to have read your long post!

I also love your new border.   Are you putting all these pretty borders somewhere where we can all use them?   I haven't checked.



Have a happy day!

Hello ladies
Busy, busy, busy.  Too much going on in my life right now.
My Aunt Kay is not expected to make it through the night. 
So sad...her youngest...Erin Jo has 3 little girls that are very
close to their grandma and are having a terrible time with this.
So sad.  I will not be able to go to the funeral.  Too far for me.
Tomorrow I have the nurses coming over for supper and the 
evening.  Not sure what we will have for supper.  Carol picks
as we are celebrating her birthday.  Wednesday will be going
to Fauska's with Nan.  It is Bruce's birthday.  We are having
BBQ Pizza and Nan is making a dessert.  We will be watching
Downton Abbey and hopefully Idol.  If we can fit it all in.
Mom is getting her blood checked tomorrow.  We are pretty
sure that she is low enough that she will need a transfusion so
that will be Wednesday.  Thurs I might think about getting my
blood checked and again on Fri, then probably do something
about it on Sat, lol.
Dorothy, I have saved the couple new ones I made but most of them are ones from the Flower category in borders.  I am up 
later and later again.  Have to work on going to be earlier.
OMGosh, forgot my big news.  I got my iPad today.  I rewarded myself for paying off my credit card.  I bought a refurbished iPad 2.  I am a happy camper.  Now I can play Draw Something.  I love that game.
Ok, have to get some sleep.  Will probably nor make it here tomorrow, so have a great day.
Hugs,

Hi ladies!  We were at a symphony concert in Wyoming over the weekend.  My sister got to watch Henry again, and we only got to see him for a few minutes.  The first picture is Henry and a walker we bought him for Easter.  He loves it!  He cannot walk in it yet, but that's OK.  The second is a picture of Dave holding Henry.  Henry just happened to fall asleep in his arms.  It was more adorable in person.

Tomorrow I will try to get in here and visit with each of you.

Good Morning.

I had a horrible night. Couldn't get to sleep or stay asleep and then sometime after 6:30 I had a nightmare. I don't usually remember my dreams, but this one was vivid. Mike's sister and brother in law are coming for the weekend in a few weeks, and I dreamed that
It was the day Marianne and Bill are coming and Mike decided we should go to a movie (which we never do) and for lunch before they come. So, we’re having lunch and I realize that it’s 5 O’clock and they would have been at the house, unable to get in for an hour and a half or so! Besides, I still have to make potato salad (which I’m not going to make) and baked beans (which I will make the day ahead) AND I have to go to the store and get the things to make them with! And we should be eating them about now. Quick, Mike, call them! They must be furious that we aren’t there. Then we stop at a 1950’s style gas station (because of course we are out of gas) with an attached store with all sorts of strange people ~ and Mike’s cell phone won’t work. (I could do about 10 minutes of cell phone problems here, but you get the picture). When he finally gets it working, he gets a call from the office and takes it! By this time I’m hysterical And I still have to grocery shop and make beans and salad for our dinner that we should be eating about now, with people who are probably so mad at us that they won’t speak to us. Aaarrgghh.

It started snowing sometime around 11 Am yesterday and snowed all day. Didn't amount to much until arouond 5, and then it started in earnest. We have at least 4 inches and more coming and it's really cold. Weather folks say it's really icy too ~ I'm glad we don't have to go out in it. The mail can wait!

Just minutes ago I got a call from Carolyn, who had just had a call from the Hospice. Tom's breathing is worse and his legs are turning a mottled color. They said it looks like it will be a long day, but . . . . .
I'm assuming the end is near. It's still so hard to get my head around. I seem to be numb. Actually, numb is good. I'd just as soon stay there for a while.

I'll come back and talk to you all later, if that's ok.

DJ

Tom passed away a couple of hours ago.  Thank you all for your prayers during the time he was in Hospice.

I am so sick of losing my posts.  But at least this time

I was not too far into it that I cannot start again.

Dorothy

I am so sorry. You and Mike have my deepest sympathy.

You all are in my heart and prayers. Knowing the he is

in Heaven and in no more pain is a comfort. Also knowing

that you will all be together again someday is a blessing.

I know this must be so hard for you both. May God

Bless you. I love you.


GrannnieM

So happy to hear from you and look forward to your post

tomorrow. The pictures of Henry art wonderful. That

walker is adorable...a little car...have never seen one like

it before.  Dave certainly looks at peace with the world

while holding Henry. I am wondering is someone could

make you a sling that you could hold Henry in. So that

his weight would be supported and you would not have

to use your arms and hands to support him.  Then you 

could hold him longer.  I know how much it hurts to have

your sister taking care of Henry instead of you being

able to do it, but than goodness she can. I still think 

she should come by you and you both could take care of

him. I think that would work fine.


We have heard nothing about my Aunt Kay today. I 

feel bad that she is lingering as I feel her family's pain.

She is a strong woman and has been fighting so hard

that I am sure it is hard for her to let go. I just keep

praying for all.


Mom is so very tired and been sleeping a lot over the last 

few days.  Last Thur. her blood was at 9.1 and she 

has to be below 9 to get a transfusion. I do not think

they take into consideration that her breathing is always

compromised and that when the hemoglobin drops it 

lowers the oxygen to the brain so to me she is doubly

effected. Suz has her at the lab now. I postponed our

getting together with my nurse friends. I know mom will

have a great deal of trouble staying awake this evening.

If all goes well, I will still go to Fauska's tomorrow

night. If needed I can ask Suz or someone to spend

some time with her and maybe make her supper. We 

will see.  Everyone have a great hump day tomorrow.

Hugs,

Hello everone. I'm posting tonight because Marcela comes tomorrow and it's too hard trying to post while she is here.


Lou Ann, I'm so sorry about your Aunt Kay.  I'm glad you are doing so many things with your friends.  Sharing that time with them may make the news about kay a bit easier to handle.  At least I hope so.

I hope your mom is going to be ok.  Sending good thoughts.

Congratulations on getting your new iPad 2!  

Thank you all so much for your sympathy and support.


annnieM, how good to see you, and how that adorable Henry is growing! He's as cute as a bug ~~ oh, no. WAY cuter!  Love the picture of Grandpa and Henry. 

How great that you got to go to the concert.  I know you haven't been able to go for a while.  Is the new WC working better for you?


I spent the bulk of my time today on the phone or on email. Tom's funeral will be on Saturday in Iowa. Mike and I can't go, of course, but we're keeping in touch with everyone.

Marcela comes today so I won't try to get online until later.

Everything is just so hard.  I'm going to have to figure out a headset I can do with one hand.  I have trouble putting my headset on and trouble with just about everything anymore.

Dorothy, you and Mike have my deepest sympathy.  So sorry to hear about Tom.

Hi Lou Ann.  Hope that your mom is feeling better.

Hi Mary Ann.  We will see you when we see you.

Literally, I am falling apart.  I don't know what to say except that when I finally get here I have nothing positive to say.  I need an attitude adjustment.

Hugs,

annnieM

HELLO LADIES

THIS IS MY 2ND TRY BECAUSE I ACCIDENTALLY CLOSED CHROME.

ANYWAY, DOROTHY KNOWS ALREADY AS I SAW HER POST ON MY WALL

ON FACEBOOK. MY AUNT KAY DIED YESTERDAY MORNING.  HER FUNERAL

IS NEXT WED.  I WILL NOT BE GOING.  THEY LIVE IN JANESVILLE AND IT

WOULD JUST BE TOO LONG A DAY WITHOUT GETTING MY LEGS UP.  I 

WOULD BE MISERABLE.  MY MOM AND SISTERS WILL GO SO I WILL BE

WELL REPRESENTED.

I TOLD YOU THAT MOM'S HEMOGLOBIN WAS 9.1 LAST THURSDAY AND

THEY TOLD HER TO RECHECK IN A WEEK.  IT WAS A ROUGH WEEKEND

AND HER BREATHING WAS GETTING WORSE SO MONDAY WE DECIDED

TO CHECK IT TUESDAY.  IT WAS 9 SO STILL NO TRANSFUSION.  THEN

YESTERDAY AND TODAY HAVE BEEN ROUGH FOR HER.  SHE GOT HER 

BLOOD CHECKED AND SHE DROPPED TO 8.6 SO 8:30AM TOMORROW 

SHE GETS TRANSFUSED.  JEEPERS CREEPERS.

YESTERDAY I HAS THIS PAIN ON MY LEFT SIDE.  JUST PIDDLY AT FIRST

AND NO STEADY.  AS THE DAY WENT ON IT GOT WORSE AND MORE 

FREQUENT.  I WAS FEARING THAT SOMETHING WAS GOING TO 

HAPPEN AND I WOULD HAVE TO GO TO THE ER OR SOMETHING.

SO I CANCELLED GOING TO MY FRIENDS.  THE PAIN WAS NOT HORRIBLE

BUT IT WAS SCARY AND I WAS ACTUALLY AFRAID TO GO TO SLEEP.

I PRAYED THAT I WOULD BE OK AND ASKED GOD TO LET ALL BE OK

IN THE MORNING.  I WOKE UP WITH NO PAIN AND HAVE NOT HAD IT 

BACK TODAY AT ALL.  THANK YOU LORD.  BUT I AM STILL A BIT

WORRIED BECAUSE PAIN IS YOUR BODIES WAY OF TELLING YOU THAT

SOMETHING IS WRONG.  SO WE WILL SEE.  

I AM KEEPING A CLOSE EYE ON MY MOM.  SHE IS JUST A BIT "OFF".

CHAT WITH YOU ALL TOMORROW.

HUGS,

Hello everyone.
I'm sorry I've been so bad about visiting with you all. Even though we can't go to the funeral, we are much involved in emails and phone calls and arrangements ~ and a bit of family drama. I'm just a bit (quite a bit?) overwhelmed. I hope you can understand.

Mike's sister from CA and our friend in IA are making us learn to text so we can keep in touch this weekend while they are on the road. I'm sure I don't have to tell you that Mike and Dorothy don't text. We don't even phone unless we have to ~ ha. Also we have old not-so-smart phones where you have to hit the '2' key three times to type "H" and start to say hello. It would take me 6 hours to say more than that! Soooo, Mike, clever guy that he is has figured out how to have his cellphone number (which has unlimited texting ~~~ don't ask!) on MY iPad and we can send and receive text messages from there, using a real (or almost real) keyboard! I think we're in for it now.

The visitation is tonight and the funeral tomorrow. Bear with me for a while longer, please.


Lou Ann, again I'm so sorry to hear about your Aunt Kay.   I'm sorry you can't go ~ believe me, Mike and I know how you feel.  Gentle hugs.


annnieM, I hate that things have become so hard for you.  It breaks my heart to think of you struggling so.  You are one of the most positive people I know, so I know how hard things have become.  Please don't stay away because you can't find something positive to say.   Your attitude with all this is amazing, and so are you.   Has Dave accepted the new job?   If he isn't there I know that would make things even harder.  Please know how much we all love you.

Mary Ann, hurry back ~ but I'm glad you have a job with your babies for a while now. 

Much love,

Dorothy

DOROTHY, I THINK YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE WORRIED ABOUT YOU

BEING HERE, LOL.  DO WHAT YOU NEED TO DO, WE ALL UNDERSTAND.

MOM GOT HER TRANSFUSION TODAY.  SHE HAS BEEN MORE ALERT

TONIGHT BUT IT MAY BE BECAUSE SHE SLEPT MOST OF THE TIME 

SHE WAS GETTING THE BLOOD AND THAT WAS AT LEAST 4 HOURS.

HER BREATHING IS STILL REALLY BAD WITH EXERTION.  I TOLD HER

THAT IF SHE WERE NOT BETTER BY MONDAY SHE WAS MAKING AN

APPT TO SEE HER DOCTOR.

IT GOT INTO THE LOW 5O'S TODAY...BUT IT WAS EXTREMELY WINDY.

SO IT SEEMED COLDER...BUT IT GIVES US HOPE.  I HAVE NO PLANS

FOR THE WEEKEND.  WE NEED TO CLEAN AND I THINK I WILL GET

STARTED ON MY BEDROOM.  NO MORE PROCRASTINATING.  YOU ALL

HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND.  DOROTHY, HANG IN THERE.  MY HEART AND

PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU AND MIKE.

HUGS,

STOPPING IN TO SAY HELLO
IT IS A BEAUTIFUL DAY HERE IN WISCONSIN.  WE WOULD HAVE THE
DOOR OPEN FOR FRESH AIR BUT THE SCREEN  DOOR IS OFF.  IT WAS IN
THE WAY FOR SOME STUFF JAMES NEEDED TO DO AND MOM TOLD HIM 
TO TAKE IT OFF.  FRIDAY SHE ASKED HIM TO PUT IT BACK ON SINCE THE
WEATHER WAS GETTING NICER.  HE SAID HE WOULD DO IT SAT. BUT DID
NOT.  JOSH WAS GOING TO DO IT FOR US BUT THE SCREWS WERE NOT 
WITH THE DOOR AND JAMES WAS NOT HOME.  SUZ KNOCKED AT THEIR
DOOR A SHORT WHILE AGO BUT NO ONE ANSWERED.  THEY ARE HOME
AS HIS TRUCK IS OUT FRONT...OH WELL, WE WAIT.
I AM MAKING MY EASY CHICKEN CORDON BLEU FOR LUNCH.  GOT UP
EARLY AND DID THE DISHES AND MADE THE CHICKEN AND PUT IT IN 
THE FRIDGE TILL TIME TO POP IT IN THE OVEN.  NOT SURE WHAT WE
WILL HAVE WITH IT, I WOULD LOVE GREEN BEANS BUT MOM DOES
NOT LIKE THEM.  SO MAYBE PEAS...SHE LIKE THEM.
OTHERWISE NOT MUCH GOING ON HERE.  HOPE YOU ARE ALL

Good morning all.

It's Monday and it's a beautiful sunny day, though snow is still predicted for Wednesday. It was 81 degrees here yesterday!

Though we didn't go to the funeral, by the time it was over both Mike and I felt like we'd been 'rode hard and put away wet'. Hate to think how we'd have done if we'd actually gone. Roberta (family friend) dragged us into the 21st century and made us learn to text. Our phones, as I've told you, are not any smarter than we are and have teeny tiny number pads. There is no way on earth we could carry on a conversation with our thumbs! So (again repeating myself) Mike set his number up on my iPad and we typed on a fairly normal keyboard while they typed on their phones, and we often had minute to minute updates on what was happening. I can see the benefit of texting ~~ sometimes.

Mike's sister and bil from CA arrived in Moline on Thursday night and picked up Roberta to drive to Guthrie Center IA on Friday. They stayed overnight in Des Moines. Carolyn's friends and family had brought tons of food to the house, and they went there first and then on to the Funeral Home for the viewing. Tom looked really bad, and somehow seeing him looking like that helped Marianne. She could see how he must have suffered and could more easily let him go. Roberta had gone over to see him the week before (a 7 - 8 hour round trip drive for her) so she was 'prepared, but had been concerned for Marianne. They all did well through Friday. The service sounded beautiful and they didn't make it through without tears. Cemetary and lunch afterwards and then they drove back to the Quad Cities. As Roberta said, we were "with them in spirit (or in her purse)" all the time. She took pictures of the flowers Mike selected so we got to see them and know they were nice.

Saturday night I fell asleep in front of the TV. Really exhausted. Hate to think if we'd tried to go.

Yesterday we (mostly Mike) cleaned and organized the pantry. I have no guilt ~ I did it several months ago and blame him for it's disarray. It looks good now. We got rid of a surprising number of out-of-date things, took stuff to the garage and generally reorganized. We're going to work on some drawers in the kitchen 'office' today, and then we should be fairly well organized and ready for Marianne and Bill when they come to visit in a couple of weeks.

Shogun is on Death Row, hoping for a Pardon that is not likely to come.
During yesterday's pantry clean out, Mike found my glass tea pot with the infuser that had gone missing. I put it on the kitchen sink, pushed back as far as it would go, while I opened cans and dumped contents down the garbage disposal. When I was nearly done, my old friend Backpain came and I had to sit for a few minute. I should have put the teapot IN the sink, but I forgot. Suddnely *CRASH*! I've told you how the monster takes a paw and nudges things to the edge of counter (where he is not allowed!) or tables, and then delights in sending them over to hear the crash. This time, the pot was glass and shattered into a bazillion pieces. I swept, picked, vacuumed and finally Mike had to take over because I was in so much pain. Hopefully between us we got it all, but my little infuser teapot is no more. And I AM going to kill him.

I've read all of your posts, but I'm not going to try to write to each of you today. I know you understand.

Thank you all for your sympathy, empathy and prayers. I've shared them all with Mike, and he appreciates them so much.
You are the best and I love you.

I forgot to tell you that we are on Baby Watch now.
Our great-great niece, Lucy, was scheduled to make her appearance on the 27th. She has obviously decided to wait and make "An Entrance".

Great great aunt Dorothy
