It’s Tuesday, Jan 2, and I’m just now saying Happy New Year to you. I am so looking forward to a bright and happy 2012. There were so many projects that I had on my shoulders in 2011 and have finished most of them. It seems 2012 will be a year for a lot of fun and new things to do .
But first, let me update you on my holiday activities and what is going on in my life. I went to visit and spend Christmas Eve with my Mom. When I got there, she was very short of breath. It seemed she was having an asthma attack which hadn’t happened to her in years. Since all of the doctor’s offices were closed, I took her to the Emergency Room. We were so surprised when the doctors said they were going to admit her to the hospital because she was in kidney and heart failure. I spent a full week with her at the hospital. My husband held down the fort at home (200 miles away), and that is how we spent Christmas. The nurses and hospital staff were absolutely wonderful the entire time.
She is now receiving visits from hospice at home and what I really want to do is to go and spend time with her this week. I’d also like to spend time with you, but I think after writing this, that the decision is made–and I’ll go there. I’ll keep you posted.
