Quickie Update - 8 Feb 2015

If you could see a picture of my consciousness it would look like the aftermath of a Cat 5 hurricane. Thank you for all the kind thoughts and comments on my parents' health.  Dad is better but not by much.  This flu really created a mess.  He's come close to pneumonia twice but had finally stepped back from that precipice but over all is still in need of healing.  He is better but definitely still has a way to go.  And all the coughing and forced bed rest really aggravated the arthritic spurs in his back.  Yesterday I find out that my mother has fallen multiple times recently and looks like someone has taken a bat to her.  Her medications just make everything that much worse because she bleeds easily and her skin is very fragile.  Ugh.

Taxes and a daughter turning sixteen (OMG, how could I have possibly forgotten either of those in my planning?!) have made things even more hectic.

Thank you for all of your forbearance.  I plan on starting the updates back up tomorrow.  I'm determined to.  They may be brief.  I might only get a couple of chapters posted in the beginning but I will be putting one foot in front of the other rather than flying around like a leaf in the wind.  Being a member of the Sandwich Generation is challenging at times like this.

For those that didn't notice I did make some additions to Dovie's and DeeDee's stories, just didn't have time to send a general note out about it.

Thanks again!


  1. Prayers for you, Kathy, and a big hug, and a pot of chicken soup! I am a member of the Sandwich Generation as well - and my folks are 8 hours away.

  2. Bless you and your family, Kathy. Family first! We've had the flu here too, 17 yr old DD was hit the hardest but is on the mend now, thank goodness! We will continue to wait patiently :-) well kinda patiently anyway

  3. Gads girl, and yes I figured you were busier then a one armed paper hanger. Hope for a Blessing for your folks and good luck with the taxes and birthdays.

  4. Kathy - some arnica cream may help your mom's bruises without interfering with her meds.

  5. As a member of the Sandwich Generation let me just say that at times it really sucks. But I get up each day and do the best I can with what God has given me.

    Prayers for healing.

  6. Kathy, I am so sorry that your folks are going through hard times. It is unavoidable as we get older but that doesn't make it any easier to handle.

    Thanks for the new chapters and please take care of your self. We're kinda fonda ya. ;-)
