It never rains but...


It seems like it's almost pouring.

1.When I came home from the cruise I learned the details about a 40sumthin' friend who had a heart transplant.Gloria was only on the list for two weeks (!!!) when she had the transplant May 22nd. She has yet to wake up which is not a good thing at all. It's possible her husband may have to make one of those terribly difficult decisions. I visit and talk to her but it's hard to know if she is still 'there'. What must it be like if she is still in that silent immobile body?!!?

2.We found out about a week or so ago, that one of our granddaughters has aplastic anemia. She is getting frequent blood transfusions while waiting to see if her little brother can be a bone marrow donor. Such little ones with such serious, life threatening issues. Bekah and Michael are out in Arizona but their mom has put a journal up on the web for all to follow the daily ups and downs. I shake my head in wonder at the idea of trying to keep a home sterile to avoid infections when Bekah is home.

3.Another friend is very very sick and may be on the liver transplant list. She too has a compromised immune system and is prone to getting sick at the drop of a hat.

4.And what is that you saw at the start of this post? Half a tooth. I broke a tooth when I came home from Charlottesville today. It does feel as tho a lot of things are falling apart right now. I know it all will pass but some of these situations seem mighty heavy right now. The tooth just seemed to be a symbol of not being able to get a handle on so many of the other things.

Payers and healing thoughts are so very welcome.

Honey, I've been away but I'm just over here thinking good thoughts for you. May your potatoes be mashed until the tooth can be fixed. May what's best come to those lovely people of yours, living with their illnesses. Big hugs.
