Time to play Catch Up

Hello everyone....Ok, I am ready to play catch up....

It has actually been about 3 weeks since we talked. I think the thing that kind of stopped me in my tracks was that I had several friends who were in trouble medically. I just started getting to me a bit.

A few people in my support group have been going through some very rough times, including both the patients themselves and of course their spouses and families.

We had one person who had been in the hospital for about 5 months fighting for his life pass away. He got so close to being transplanted at one point they had found a liver for him, and as he was being wheeled into surgery his lung collapsed and they had to abort his transplant and put him on a ventilator which he was then on and off until he passed away. I saw him the day before he died. He was about my age.

There is David and his wife Sharon who I have posted about and you have the link to his blog in other posts that I worry about and pray for daily.

My friend Corina and her husband Frank. She had a stroke unexpectedly about 2 months ago and has been in and out of the ER and hospital as she tries to recover from that.

Sweet 6 year old Annika, who I only know from her blog, going in for her 3rd liver transplant last week.

Anyway, you get the idea...............It is of course them and not me who I am concerned about but I think I just felt I wanted to shut down and shut it all out for a bit.

Joe and I have been doing a bunch in the past few weeks though as well and I want to share those things with you too....

Let's start with the escape cruise to Cabo shall we???????
