They gave me a stuffed toy...a Catacorn.  It is a white cat with a gold horn and a rainbow tail.  It really made me laugh.  Then there was a sleep mask and it was the sleeping eyes and the horn of a unicorn. Dear Lord, lol.  Then there was a water bottle of a unicorn.  Josh gave me from The Living Light Studios a little primitive unicorn figure carved from stone.  No matter how much you tell these people to not buy us sit around things, they still do, lol.

We had a small dining room to set up food and eat in.  Joanne made Cheesy Pulled Chicken for sandwiches. And Diane bought 3 different salads, BLT Pasta, Potato and a Fruit Fluff.  There were tons of cookies as Diane had purchased a lot from the school that the Senior Baking and Pastry classes made.  Those that I tried were very good.  Diane made Divinity with my mom and I do not know what they did, but it was not divinity.  Though it was good.  It was a bit chewy and it had turned tan and was overloaded with pecans.  I will lay you odds mom added more than it called for.  Everyone was on good behavior and got along well.  No name calling or tantrums or anyone leaving in anger.  So I guess you would say it all went quite well. You will have to learn that you do not always have to give a gift when someone gives one to you.  It is one of the joys of giving gifts.
I am going to say goodnight now and head back to my room.
I love you so much, and I would have so loved to watch those movies with you. Big hugs and left over Christmas kisses.
Hugs, Lou Ann

Hello

Sorry for being MIA.  That flu or cold or whatever it is that Barb had visited me and I was soooo sick yesterday. I pretty much never get colds or flu anymore, but I surely have 'it' now!    I slept in the Morning Room most of the time when Shauna was working.  Then I asked her to go to the store for me because I really couldn't have.  She was going to get Coldeze with Zink but they didn't have any, but she did get me plain zinc and  some OJ and some Ginger ale because I was nauseated.    By evening I felt better, this morning I felt worse and right now, ok, except for my ribs being so sore.   

I think the problem is the new meds which make me light headed and dizzy coupled with being short of breath.   Barb brought her trash can over  to my house before she left town yesterday so  could bring it inside when they picked it up, but Jake "helped us out" by taking it back to her house so I had to go and get it.   I had to stop twice in that short distance and really thought I was going to pass out.  I didn't~ and today I got to do it again.   Barb had a package delivered today that was supposed to be delivered yesterday, so I had to go over and pick it up for her.   Have to admit I  was nervous about it, but I made it there and back with no rest stops.   A little winded but that was all.

Now I'm back to coughing fits.  Oh joy.


Really, your Christmas sounded so nice!   I guess you will never NOT be the Unicorn Queen ~ lol    Still,ow fun!

I'm sorry the room is smaller than y  ou had expected, but it still sounds nice.  Yes??   Will you for SURE be able to go there??   My fingers are crossed!


Love you bunches.

Happy New Year!

Nothing planned for tonight, or for that matter for tomorrow.  I always made stroganoff with noodles and Harvard beets and black bread, and we had champagne or wine and watched one of our "epic" movies like Dr Zhivago or Gone with the Wind or our favorite BBC Mini Series, Pride and Prejudice ~ all six hours of it.

Tonight maybe a peanut butter sandwich and a Hallmark movie.  It really doesn't matter.   Just another day.   I'm still fighting that "Plague", it kept me awake much of the night coughing, but (shhh.  don't say it out loud) right this minute I'm feeling better.   We'll see how long that lasts.

News this morning is that one deputy in Douglas County was killed and four others injured along with two civilians in an apartment complex.   Follow up comment:  The suspect is no longer a threat.

It's 23 degrees, heading for a "high" of 24.   With the wind chill it feels like 6.   I think I'll be staying inside, thank you very much.

I hope with all my heart that 2018 is a really wonderful year for you, a year when everything turns around!  

Love you, my little sister.

Hello All.  

Yesterday was a sort of bad day cold-wise.   I really haven't felt all that bad, but there is a lot of coughing going on, and the bad thing is that if I am not sitting or standing up perfectly straight, the flim doesn't come up and I just cough and cough ineffectively.   When I went to bed it was really pretty bad.   I don't sleep well sitting up straight, and in any other position I needed to cough  but couldn't.   I got very little sleep until it was time to get up ~~ THEN I fell asleep.  lol   So, as is often the case, I'm starting the day off way too late again.    Once again, so much to do, so little getting done, and I still haven't had my coffee!  

I hope things are going better for you today.

Love you.

The Last two nights I have barely slept so by evening and I finally get to where I can connect, I am so tired that I cannot think, let alone write to you.  Tomorrow I am going to try to come out in the morning while I am not so exhausted.  So I hope to chat then.
All my love big sister!

And a frosty good morning to you.    It's a frosty 22 degrees right now, but planning on warming to 49.

It's also Hump Day.  Wasn't yesterday New Year's Eve?  

Yesterday was another bad day for me, with everything that could go wrong going wrong.   It's all small stuff, but there are always so many things.   I feel like I'm being buried in an avalanche ~ or six.   Last night was worse.  I did this one to myself.   A pop up told me to update my Favorites Bar with Google, and I did a while back.   I have never done anything with Google that didn't screw me up and this was no exception.   Instead of all of my nice, orderly bookmarks, I lost easily half of my bookmarks, some of them crucial, and they were replaced with others I could care less about.   I can blame no one but myself, but I've been working so hard to get at least the most important ones back but I haven't been able to in many important instances.  I was up until 2AM trying to get the bookmark that lets me order my drugs and getting more and more frustrated.   I knew the company, of course, but couldn't get to the login page.  I won't bore you with more detail, but it was so frustrating, and I finally got it ~ I'm not even sure how.   So many others missing that have to be tracked down.    BTW I hate Outlook as much as I do Google, fyi.   Ha.    

By the time I got the job done I was wide awake and couldn't sleep, at least partially due to this cough.   It wouldn't be bad if it weren't so noisy!  When I lay down you can hear a whole orchestra playing out of tune in my chest and throat.  You can't sleep through that.   Unless I'm straight up, I can't cough the phlem up, and I can't sleep "straight up".  When I do cough, it sounds like I'm playing a flute ~ a very LOUD flute.   lol

 So, I haven't slept all night and I'm tired and I'm going to have another day when I don't get anything done.

I did make coffee and feed the cat and do a few other small things, and now I'm here ready to have my coffee with you.    Cinnamon Hazelnut coffee that Laine gave me today.   It's good!

The neighbors all took their outside decorations down, so as far as I can see from here, I'm the only one with them still left up.   I had planned to at least take the porch rail lights down today.  Those are mine, and I'm borrowing a timer from Barb.  I think she or Jake can turn the outside lights off for me (I hope), though who knows when the company will come and actually take them down.    

Have you had any more  news on what is going on for you?   Will you be able to move?   To have the procedure you need?    I worry about you and wish there were something I could do to make things better!


Love you much!

I AM FIANALLY GETTING BACK TO YOU AFTER ALL THIS TIME.  I WISH I HAD BEEN ABLE TO DO IT IN A MORE TIMELY.  AFTER MOMS FUNERAL, I BARELEY GOT THROUGH IT, I REALLY FELL APART AND SO DID EVERYTHING ELSE.  I KNEW IT WOULD.  YOU KNOW HOW CONNECTED WE WERE.  I BECAME MISERABLEY DEPRESED.  THEN ALL MY LABS WENT OUT AND SO DID MY KIDNEYS.  I ENDED UP IN THE HOSPITAL AND THEN THEY TOLD I WAS HOSPICE MATERIAL AND MOVED ME TO HOSPISE HOME OF HOPE.  I HAVE A BEAUTIFUL LARGE ROOM ALL TO MY SELF WITH LOTS OF WINDOWS AND A PORCH WITH BIRD FEEDERS AND DEER AND A POND.  THE FLOWERS YOU AND BARB SENT FOR MOMS FUNERAL WERE GORGEOU AND I THINK I HAVE A PICTURE OF THEM SOMEWHERE!  I WAS OUT OF IT FOR A FEW DAYS AND WHEN I WOKE I WAS TOLD I  WAS HOSPICE.  I KNOW MY THOUGHTS ARE DISJOINTED HERE AND NOT VERY CLEARLY STATED. MY SISTER, LOOKS TO ME LIKE YOU REALLY PERSUE YOUR LOCAL FRIENDSHIPS!

 Life has taken another turn and The universe only knows where it goes from there.  I believe in going to heaven and being with my mom again.  After my mom passed I went down hill and found myself in the hospital again.  I thought I would be going back come to the home but they suggested I go Palliative care and go Hospice Home of Hope.  I got so lucky. It is quite beautiful here!  My medicaid pays it almost and there are some assistive groups out there. Also money I get when I die that will pay up what I owe and leave a little for the family.  I have about a month to live and if I am luck 2 months.  So you may not see me all that much.  I will do my best to be around. Hugs,

I was stunned when I saw this on Facebook, and I guess I'm either just awful or totally unrealistic, but I just don't accept it!   I know how sick you have been and how hard you have fought and how shocked and depressed you had to have been when your mom died.

I remember so clearly how it was when my mom died.   Initially I did everything I was expected to do, everything she would have done and expected me to do.   My sister-in-law hovered around me waiting for me to fall apart, but I couldn't until I got the job done.   Then later, when I was alone, the Tidal Waves of grief came and washed over me ~ over and over.   I hurt for you, remembering that time in my own life.   I wanted to be there with you or send you flowers and daily messages and make cards for you so you'd know how much you were in my heart, but I didn't really know where you were or how to reach you and let you know I was here for you.

I need that time, so I can't let you go.   It hasn't been long since Mike left me.   Please don't leave me, too.

I "hear" myself and realize how selfish that is, and I am ~ but I've never claimed to be otherwise.   

I've had talks with my neighbor Barb, the Missionary Surgeon, about Mike and she has shared the scriptures about how in Heaven there is no fear and no sorrow.    How can I not want that for you, knowing all you have been through?    Well, I can not want that for you because it would cost ME too much ~ that's just the kind of terrible person I am.     I want you to be out of pain and feeling good and happy and knowing how loved you are, but I want all of that to be "here".    

I will come to terms and accept whatever I must, but don't expect me to let you go softly into that good night without my putting up a fight!    Then, if I must, I will celebrate with you ~ as best I can ~ but not until I've put up a Hell of a fight!

Your room sounds lovely.   You so deserve a lovely room and great care ~ for the next 20 or 30 years.   ;-)

Tell me where you are so I can send a card or a flower.      Where is Hospice Home of Hope?   Can your friends and family come often?   Me, too, if only virtually?

I love you little sister.   Please don't leave me.

Dorothy

I got your beautiful flowers today and they made me smile! 
I will have to get a picture and post them so you can see them.
I am glad you found me.  Give me your email address.  I think
I will have much better luck contacting you that way.
You must have found my address where I posted it on Facebook.
I am not going into the dark night without a fight until I see it is the right choice, right now it is not.  You can be in hospice for a year before being removed. Then if something changes you can go back into hospice.  I am seeing certain signs that worry me.  My edema is climbing higher up my leg.
I cannot seem to control my urine anymore so we are going to try putting my catheter in again.  I do hate the dependency.  They will not let me get up by myself and I think I am more than capable of doing so.  I am not allowed to go from my recliner to the table and chairs in the room and that sucks so I need to ask for help just to change what I was doing.  I have my laptop here but have not tried using it yet.  There are no plug ins around my recliner so I would have to sit at the table.  Such a mess.  I will see what can be found around my chair.
I get a fluid build up in my chest around my lungs.  I now have a catheter under my right breast and they suction off fluids daily.  At least 1/2 liter.  I breathe so much better when I do.  This is the issue that will take me...Congestive Heart Failure.  It is taking it's toll on the kidneys too.  I hate the inhumanity of having to be cleaned up EVERYTIME I pee.  I often wet as I have little control now.  Well this is a start.  Talk to you soon
Love and hugs to my little sister.
Lou Ann

It's so wonderful to hear from you!   I'm so glad you got the flowers and they made you smile.    I get notification that they have been delivered, but I'm never sure what that means.   Were they delivered to the Hospice, but not necessarily to you?   It always makes me feel so much better when I know for sure.

I'm more than delighted that you plan to go kicking and screaming into "that good night", if and when you must go.   Thank you!   I know there are times when it would just be easier to let go, but hopefully the fighter will come back very shortly after those times.    

I felt that a bit after Mike died, and I was in heart failure.  What am I hanging on to now that Mike is gone?   I don't have a death wish, I just didn't particularly have a life wish either.    You know what kept me going?   The fact that my closet was dirty and I didn't have a Will that would leave nearly everything to my niece and sister-in-law, with a few other bequests.  If I just up and died, they would have a real mess on their hands, not to mention seeing my dirty closet.   LOL     Hey, whatever gets you through the day.   Once all the various paperwork and taxes and whatever are done, if things really went South for me, I don't know that I would care all that much to just stay, but right now I'm feeling much better and doing things with friends and neighbors, and my family has been surprisingly supportive.   I really had no reason to think they would, but they have been amazing.    So far.    I won't count on that continuing forever.     That makes me so glad that your family is so big and so loving, and I know you won't ever have to feel really alone.

I love that your room is beautiful and you are being given good care ~ if a bit too restrictive.   As long as they are there when you need them.   I love that your room is Private and that you can stay for a year and then "see".  That just makes my face smile.  

Oh ~ about my Detective work to find you!    I checked out the web site for Hospice House of Hope and got the address and phone number.   Then I called the main desk and asked to confirm that you were there.   I would have asked for your room number too, but she very sweetly told me that she couldn't confirm that you were there, or not, because of the HIPA rules.    I do understand that, so I couldn't complain, but I shared with her that I'd just learned that my friend was possibly there, and I wanted to be able to send flowers and cards.   I'm afraid my voice cracked, but that made her feel empathy for me.   She didn't confirm or deny, but she said she would not discourage me from sending flowers.   Bless her heart ~~ and don't tell anyone.   She really didn't give any information, she just didn't discourage me.      I really am so glad to be sure now!

Feel better every day, y'heah?   I love you much!

Dorothy

Sorry the print isn't easier to read.   It's at 18, and making it larger makes it even harder to read.
