Heavy Hearted

Oh dear...........I write with such a heavy heart tonight. Yesterday morning my sister's PCA worker found her on her bathroom floor unconscious. This is the sister that was in a MVA in 1976 and has dealt with chronic pain since, had a stroke in 2004, and is in a wheelchair. She had tried to transfer from her chair to the toilet and passed out. She was taken by ambulance to the ER and is now in the hospital in CCU. She's full of staph infection, is anemic (needed 2 pints of blood), diabetic, and they think she's had a heart attack - all this at age 54. The toughest thing is, we may have to put her in a nursing home, as home health won't be able to continue around-the-clock care. I'm just so broken hearted. Cried most of yesterday, today is better, but very difficult. Please keep her in your prayers. She's had a tough life and is sooo tired, both physically and mentally; she just wants to die. Time will tell what happens next.

Well, needless to say, I wasn't home the last 2 days to decorate and prepare like I wanted to for my MK open house, but threw some gift baskets together this afternoon and tried to get my puffy eyes presentable for customers. It helps to put on holiday music and light candles and just visit with the ladies who stopped in to shop. I'm so exhausted, will go to bed early tonight :)

Oh boy, did you see the lucky fans in Australia on the Thursday Surprise....cute of Josh to comment that a fan couldn't kiss him...."damn rules"! I have to say, I agree whole-heartedly. I'd at least want a hug :) but I'd settle for a squeeze of my hand. I think...OH, WHO AM I KIDDING??? Settle? NO WAY :)

I'm like falling asleep at the computer here. I want to take time to get caught up on your journals, though, so better get some caffeine or something :)

OK, back and ready to read up! Hope you're all enjoying your Friday evening and have some fun plans for the weekend! Josh hugs,
Colette
