2009 - it's hard to believe isn't it - I will be 59 on my birthday! WOW!
So, my DD and her family left the country Saturday and will be gone for at least four years. I cannot describe how difficult it was to say goodbye to that baby knowing that it will be so long before I see her again. And, of course, Jeni.
Hopefully I will be able to fly to where she vacations in the summer of 2010. Anyway, that is my plan.
My 91 yr old mother fell on Dec 3 and broke her hip. She had surgery, of course, and was in the hospital and then a rehab center for all of Dec. She is home now, but during all of the testing etc. they discovered a malignancy. [Apparently this has been there for a while.] Because of her age, and the results of the tests, they are not going to do further testing. The doctor said the goal would be to keep her comfortable 'for the next few months'.
I got that news on Friday and Jeni left on Saturday. NOT a good weekend.
I'm pretty okay...I have lots of friends, a strong support group. Please keep us in your prayers. I especially ask for prayers that Momma will not suffer and that I will be strong.
