Life throws us in directions that take time, patience and efforts and tests us for our ability to hang on. Been there before, endured that with my daughter.
I have been trying to place my father who has Alzheimer's in a facility and finally have that done. He seems to be adjusting well. My mother has been in the hospital and is now in a rehab, her body, her physical being is better now but her mind is in dementia and I am trying to find her a place to go which is hard in such a small town. Tom's Aunt that he is in charge of has now been placed in a facility in Pocatello. And last night my darling nephew Scott got the news after being number one on the liver donor list for a very long time, he will get a new liver tomorrow. He lives in Denver. They are very optimistic and please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. My brother is struggling as well, and I am hoping his life will be more at peace soon and am helping him with that as much as I can.
I know so many of you have called and left wonderful messages for me and are concerned that no one hears from me. My parent's estate is a total mess and I have never in my life been through so many hours and hours of attorney's and paperwork and red tape. So that is why for the past month nothing much has gone on here. I vow to my daughter and Tom's son, we will never do this to our children.
I thank each and every one of you that has called, left messages, sent cards and even the ones that have left me not so nice messages trying to get me to call back because you are worried. I am fine.....just trying to take care of 3+ people and Tom is running his business in the busiest time of the year for him.
I love my husband who has been so brave and so good to me throughout all this. We are a great team and I love him for his shoulder to cry on, his generosity with his time and his ability to just hang in there with me and understand all I am going through. He's there for me guys, thick and thin. So don't worry just keep Scott in mind for me and in your thoughts and prayers.
Thank you all and remember how much I care and love you right back.

To you O Lord, I lift up my soul, in you I trust, O my God. Psalm 25:

huggers to you all.......Jann
