Long Summer and Back to Work

It sure has been a long summer for our family. My mom went to the doctor and the technican did some adjustments on her pacemaker. Needless to say, I believe that was the begininng of the end. She immediately started having breathing problems, but thought that was normal. Didn't tell my sister (who is a nurse) because of what she would say.

Mom and her hubby took a trip to Idaho to visit my sister, and she was immediately put into the hospital for the week. Got her stable and sent her back home to California. Had several doctors appointments, but nothing was done. Then her hubby took her to the hospital.

We (I) was in Paradise hospital for almost two weeks, then we had mom transferred to San Francisco. Spent about one and a half weeks there. Docs did all they could for her and it we were basically told it is now a waiting process. Can we get better enough to live in an assisted living facility or ???? Mom would never go back and take care of her home.

We got mom stable and then transferred her to Boise, Idaho, closer to my sister, (and a little closer for me). She was doing better, but not good enough for an assisted living facility yet. Then she took a turn for the worse. I headed that way, Jacque flew out, and the three of us girls spent the next week and half with mom, and then the Lord took her to another place.

She is no longer suffering, for which I am glad, but I miss her. The family then gathered back in Paradise, California to clean out her house, memorial service, and then place mom where she belongs, which back with our dad.

I am now back at home, John is back in school, The Speckled Goose is taking on more space inside Noble Treasures. That move should be completed within the next few days. No rest for the wicked, but I didn't realize that I was that wicked. =)

Next post I'll show you what I have been up to the last week or so, and then I am back to work again.

Have a great rest of your weekend.


ps - thanks for all the thoughts and prayers during this long summer I have had.
