still a bit sore from the weekend. Worked with a 69 Y/O stroke victim skiing on Sunday and she was a handful. Back will be sore for a few days to come. That was my last day of volunteering for the season. Kind of glad this season is over for that as its been tough on my ailing back.

working, finally.

It has been very slow this year here at the theatre.
Lots of rumours, I hope it all works out.
I am too old to start over, and too broke to retire early.

Good night everyone.

hoping Pard and CH can work their way through the next days and weeks.

My daughter lost a friend the other day. He worked with her at the ski resort she works at. He skied off a trail and hit a tree and died. He was 31. God takes us sometimes when we least expect it.

so sorry Pard and CH.

We just held Nik's memorial in Winnipeg, in the same hall as we held our friend Kevin's memorial in July.
Both men were in their early 50's but one tried to live and was denied and one had a chance at life, but chose drink over living.

Both men were loved by many and both deaths were a tragedy.

I hope time will heal your loss Pard and CH.

Good night.

Mom is rallying a bit. I do think that meaningful life is over and I hope there are no heroic acts to keep her alive should something go wrong.

CH, Pard, Mom and all family are in my prayers. My Mom also caught C Diff when she was in the hospital, don't know if that's what your Mom has but we will pray that it be healed and her body is strengthened. May the Almighty put His arms around all of you and strengthen you also. May He give Wisdom to all involved with Mom. May He give you all His Peace at this difficult time and just know that no matter what happens in our life He is always there and weeps with us during difficult times. I know this is hard to go through, my heart goes out to all of you. Hugs and Blessings.

Pard and CH, You are both in my prayers as, of course, your mother is too. I do hope she rallies and recovers. Best of luck to all of you. At least you can be there.

As cruel as it may sound, maybe not being there is the gut punch Sheila needs to wake up and beat this addiction thing. I do hope this wakes her up.

miserable.

What went wrong?

Ma is in ICU and the doctors have called the families to her side. Hubby and I were in the road Wednesday morning, doctors message came to Pard and sis this morning. They flew down and were here by noon. Hubby and I didn't arrive until about 2230.

Mom looks awful. She is unresponsive, her O2 is in the 80s, but I was coaxing her to deep breathely and maybe she heard me. He bp is shockingly low.

I'm so tired and feel like I've been punched in the gut. Please pray. My Sheila can't come down, there is no money for that. Don't know if her probation guy could let her out of state.

stopping in to say Hi and praying for all of you who pop in here, there's been a lot going on here since my last visit.

Life! All we can do sometimes is just take one day at a time. Sometimes I don't even have the energy to pray, just lay under the shadow of His Wings.

Pard, I too hope that the 'funeral season' is over, after my Mom left me at the end of November, my cousin (63) passed away a few weeks ago and my friend and sister-in-law (57) passed away on Monday.

Love and Blessings to all of you.

sorry to hear about CH's daughter. I do hope something convinces her that there is a better way.

Glad to hear that CH and Pard's mother is doing well. I hope her pain level decreases by a lot over the next 24-48 hours.

I hope Roadieboy get over the ear infection quickly and completely.

I seem to have found a cold virus somewhere. Only a head cold. Nothing to the chest, at least not yet. I hate chest colds! Head colds are bad enough.

happy to report that our mom (mine and CH's) had a successful surgery, and that she is expected to be able to go home tomorrow. She WILL need a lot of care, and I still pray for an uneventful recovery, that isn't always a guarantee.
Thank you one and all for your prayers and concern. Knowing this is a great help and source of strength. This is a great GB bunch!

Hope everyone had a fun St. Patrick's Day, too!

in pain.

Hand pain is bad but heart pain is even worse. My heart aches for my daughter. Her beautiful hands are full of needle marks, tracks all over her arms and legs, feet, toes. She can barely walk.

And mom is in surgery now. It seems as if fragile bones run in the family. I went from osteopenia to osteoporosis while taking meds. I'm petrified of falling. When I fell in June 2012, I heard my bones breaking. Horrible sound, that. Elbow was crushed.

We're going to Florida tomorrow. Driving down... I want to fly but we don't even have $ for that. Hubby had a few $ in his MasterCard, so that'll get us some gas. Will have to rest in the car on the way down. No funds for a hotel. Sleeping in a Pontiac G3 should be interesting. We can rest easier when we get to mom's.

Sorry for rambling on. I don't know what's what any more.

Praying for Pard and CH's Mom. Spiral fractures are BAD. I hope for a positive outcome.

On another totally different note, Boston set a new winter snowfall record yesterday. We broke the old one by an inch. We have had a total of 108.6 inches of snow this winter. That is just over nine feet or very close to three meters of the white stuff. As its mid March, I don't think we are done yet. I just hope we don't get any more BIG storms!

broken hearted.

My daughter is mainlining smack again.

Also, I am having stupid surgery on my stupid hands again. I'm tired of my stupid fingers stupid triggering all the stupid time. 11 stupid A.M. for the stupid surgery tomorrow.

Also too... the kid who is in the townhouse next to us ALWAYS plays basketball or something in the basement for HOURS every night. He goes on past midnight. I can't stand it.

I hate nil per os midnight.
