Update from the land of snow and ice


I came home last night to find a beautiful bouquet of a dozen mixed roses.  So cheery and bright compared to outside (which I will get to later)   I know everyone is wondering about Mom so I'll get right to the update.  She is still fighting.  There have been some bad days.  Christmas Eve I wasn't sure if she would make it to Christmas Day but she did.  There have been good days and days with a combination of both.  The past 2 days she has had good mornings and not great evenings.  She continues to amaze me with how tough she is. Her doctor is back from vacation tomorrow so I'll see what he has to say.  I know the outcome isn't going to change but I think she will hold on longer than expected. 

There isn't much else to report.  I have been going to the hospital mid to late mornings and staying into the evening.  Auntie is with Mom now so I just popped home to check on Millie who is hopelessly lonely.  My only other activity has been shoveling.   I believe our town is Winters Official Headquarters.  It just keeps snowing.  This is looking towards my backyard from the driveway



Ugh!   The lady who was cleaning Mom's room this morning said it was like a Winter Wonderland and I seriously wanted to beat her with her own mop!!   And just to add insult to injury ANOTHER storm is arriving Sunday night into Monday.  COME ON.........ENOUGH!!!

I've been too tired when I get home at night to check on you all but I will soon.  There is no wireless in the hospital so it uses to much data time to blog.  I do check in on Facebook though. 

Again, thanks for all the messages and prayers for Mom.  When I arrived at the hospital the morning of the 24th there was gift bag by Mom's bed.  A friend dropped off the angel and she's been watching over her ever since.

  13. Keeping you and your Mom in my prayers too. What lovely roses! And I love the way you set up the angel for her photo. It looks as if she has a halo or two.

  21. It's good to hear from you, Kim... been thinking of you all often! That little angel is beautiful... the pattern on the curtains behind it makes it look like she's wearing a glowing halo! You have way too much snow already... I think I would have fallen out of sanity and fired up a flame thrower to melt it all! lol! Hugs to you! ~Sharon

  23. Oh Kim I feel so bad that I have not been blogging so I did not know about your mom. Sending you much love and prayers.
    Sorry your having sooooo much snow. You know I could not handle it at all. Just the temps we have been having are enough to send me up the wall but your snow would push me over the edge.
    Take care sweet friend and know I am praying for you and your Mom.
    Love ya
    Maggie

  24. I continue to send my thoughts and prayers, Kim. If I were nearby, I would be very happy to help you in some way. That is really more snow and ice than you need to have to think about! Sending love and hugs! Nellie

  25. I'm glad things have been going just a bit better. I've been keeping you in my thoughts and have been hoping for a good outcome. Moms are tougher than we think they are, sometimes. And I'm sure you're finding some strength in yourself you didn't know you had. Thinking of you both this New Year's Eve, and wishing/praying for good things in the new year.
