A Little This & That

Tuesday, February 14, 2012

Haven't posted on here for a few days so will do a quick update.
Dear hubby is down to just 5 more sessions of radiation-woo hoo. He can hardly wait to get done. We took Abbie with us today and got to show her off to the office staff. They are very accomodating in there. They have made an unpleasant situation very pleasant.
Our dear Karen is in the hospital with blood clots-she has them in her leg and lung. She had to see the dr yesterday and he sent her straight to the hospital. Things just don't get any better for her. They are trying to find a way to get her home to Massachusettes as she would like to go there to be with her family at the end and that is understandable. Friends here are trying to see if Angel Flight would be a way to get her back up there. We are all doing all we can to make things as easy as possible for her and Tommy.
Our new to us mh had to go back to the shop on Monday. It will remain there for about a week. They had to order a new lock for our side entry door as it would not lock and there is a problem with the furnace-they installed a new blower and thermostat and something isn't right as over the cold weekend, we could not get the blower to shut off so they are working on that too. Nothing major, but for now we are on hold!
This afternoon we went our with 9 friends for a nice Valentine's Dinner at Ruby Tuesday. I had called yesterday to make reservations and certainly was glad of that. We arrived at 4 and got right in and by the time we left a little before 6, there was a 40 min wait so we did that right.
Hope everyone has had as good a day as I have. Happy Valentine's Day.

    Glad to hear that your dh is down to only 5 more radiation treatments.

    Hope your mh comes back good as new. We had a basic one for about five years until we finished a small home in FL. which we use in the winter. Now we just drive south in the fall and back north in the spring in my husband's truck.

    I think it is great that friends are doing what they can to help Karen. I continue to pray for her and Tommy and for your dh and you as you take care of him.

    I hope that your mh comes back, ready to go so that when your dh finishes his treatments, you can use it.

    Pray that all goes well for Karen and that she is able to go back home to Massachusetts. Thank you for the update. Glad your DH is on the downside of his treatments too!!!
    WAY TO GO on having a great Valentine's Day dinner. Your reservations made a big difference. AWESOME!!!
    Hope your MH will be completely fixed and ready to roll when you are. I know that I love ours even though DH is thinking about getting a little bigger one. Have a great weekend.
    Blessings and hugs to your and yours.

    I bet you and your hubby will both be glad when the radiation is behind you. I hope Karen is able to get home. Your dinner out sounds wonderful.

    Thank you for sharing the latest about Karen. My Mom flew Angel Flight from Colorado to Texas when my sister moved down there. I recommend the company for their service.

    Isn't it exciting to see how few radiation sessions your DH has left! I'm sure you both will be glad when they are through.

    Hopefully, the MH will be right as rain after its time in the shop, and you and your DH will have many thoroughly enjoyable days and nights in it.

    Thanks for sharing the news about Karen. I hope
    arrangements can be made to get her to Mass.
    Get all the little bugs out of the mh so you can
    enjoy it when DH is done with treatment. You
    deserve a break. HUGS!
