I've only had a minutes here and there to be on the cafe. Life happens sometimes. Greg's siblings gathered for a few days to spend time with his mom who is 99 and lives on her own. Some of them stayed with us. Then my Mom went to the doctor and he was alarmed that she has lost 20 lbs in the past year and weighs about 98 lbs. now. So I took her to get a CT scan....then the waiting started. Four days later the doctor said he wanted her and dad to come in for an appointment (in four more days) and it was important. We were all afraid of the worst. It was a long four days, but during that four days we had birthday parties for 3 family members. The appointment came and the doctor first of all gave good news....no signs of tumors or cancer, but there is a problem with her lungs. So I took her for four hours of appointments on Tuesday. Yesterday she had a procedure at the hospital where they put her under anesthesia and looked in her lungs and cleaned out all the junk. I couldn't help with that because Greg and I had agreed to be in charge of a Red Cross Blood Drive at our church that day. The blood drive was very successful.....50 donors....but we were there for many hours. Can I say that I am exhausted today?! I need to take a deep breath and prepare for more company coming tomorrow. I miss you all. Hope to be back soon. My camera is needing to see some use. This is the only photo I have to share....from my phone, of the Red Cross setting up for the blood drive. Didn't think it would be appropriate to take any photos once the drive started.
