UPDATING here to let all know that mom is doing okay. She is managing her pain well and so far but her strength is not back to normal yet. She will be released from the hospital soon to go have some rehabilitation at a center in our town. We wanted her to have a nice Christmas at home this year but she just did not recover well from her recent surgery etc. The timing stinks but we have learned that every day we have is special and to be glad that we have them.

I enjoy the freedom of being creative and interacting with the millions of other bloggers in the world.I love learning the new things that the computer world has to offer. I have made friends that will last a lifetime blogging, something I never ever thought would happen. I hope you enjoy my blog,and will continue to visit me in the future.

  2. Wishing your Mom a painfree and special Christmas. I’m sorry things worked out like this, but so glad that she’s stable and starting to be on the mend.

  3. Thanks very much for letting us know what’s going on. I know what you mean about having her being so important. Merry Christmas to you both no matter where you spend Christmas. God bless you.

  4. Great that she is doing better. Each day, is indeed a blessing and the sooner we all believe that, the happier we’ll be. So great to have Sean home this Christmas! Big hugs to you, your Mom and your sis!

  5. Greetings to you … May your world be filled with warmth and good cheer this Holiday Season and throughout the coming new year. Some people celebrate Christmas and some do not. Despite one’s own beliefs and traditions, I find that at this time of year, it’s almost as if ‘something or someone’ waves a magical wand over most of the world… and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful. Cheers to you and yours!

    • Hoping that your mother’s recovery continues to go smoothly. Christmas may be no time to be ill or recovering from surgery, but at least we can be thankful that she is doing well and fairly comfortable at that. Thoughts are with you both.

  6. Before you ring out the old and ring in the new when the mid-nite bell rings on December 31st, I just wanted to leave you a brief message to wish you in 2011… Happiness, Success, Peace, Hope and Togetherness with your Family and Friends. Wishing you a very…very…very prosperious 2011.
    Cheers to a New Year … and another chance for us to get it right!
