Heart to Heart

It's Monday again

this morning Mom goes in for her dye test
she has a blockage
so we are keeping our fingers crossed
that everything will go smoothly
that they can get through with the balloon
and insert a stint if neccessary

her appointment on Friday went well
scared her a bit ~ but I told her to stay
that's the key!

I also got to see Donny
he is thin thin thin but feeling a bit better
he is on the mend
and they are focusing on getting him well
and some meat on his bones
it was good to see him.

Saturday I was exhausted and did absolutely nothing
all day ~ it really was a wasted day
but I finished my book so all was not lost.

Sam came to spend the night and we curled up on the couch
watched The Notebook and munched on popcorn

Sunday morning after a brunch of chocolate chip pancakes
she came with me as I ran some errands
then we went to see Dolphin Tale

two thumbs up ~ highly recommend it
especially for preteens
Elysa & Sierra came with us
and you will more than likely hear more about these two
as they are new additions to my brother's family
thru his new girlfriend.

so today I await a phone call
our good friends are with Mom as I type
she stayed with them all week-end
and will take her in this morning

I hope to be on the road around noon
to zip back down to get her
and bring her home

here's hoping...

Oh Lori,
You are having a bit of a time of it at the moment. It is such a hard time when our parents are poorly and what with Donny as well it must be hard for you. Just remember that you are doing all that you can and also, try and make some time for yourself won't you ? No wonder you didn't do aything on Saturday. You deserve to put your feet up and do nothing ( apart from reading your book !!) I wish your mum well and hope that everything is sorted soon......and, feed Donny up with lots of your lovely cooking.
.....and, on a lighter note, I LOVE your new header. It looks wonderful.
Lots of love Lori and take care. XXXX

we just need to be praying that the people around you get healthy! You are such a sweetie to take such great care of the people you love. I love the movie dolphin tale! We went last weekend and I found it to be so inspiring!

Travel safe dear friend! Wasted days are ok, keeps the mind refueled, and you've had lots on your plate, so it is OK!

I want to take Jake to see that movie... yay for a good review!
