Good Morning!
Lucy decided to wake us up with vomiting on the carpet in our bedroom UGH! I'm awake now!
Teri, I hope you have safe, uneventful travels and have the BEST TIME with your grandson! Your FB pic was so cute!
Ingrid, I hope we get a good update on Evert today. Praying for y'all.
Judi, I hope you hear back from the Gastro today. That is ridiculous!
Laura, praying for your friend and family.
Work, then we head to Kiawah Island tomorrow just for a change of scenery.
Have a great weekend!

Good morning!

Have a wonderful vacation Teri!

Laura, sending my very best wishes Regina's way. Never lose hope.

We took a ride to the cemetery where David's Dad (and now his Mom) are buried, and we were happy to see that the stone now includes his Mom's name and dates. We then took a long walk around the cemetery and visited all of the other stones of his family members there. I don't know why, but I love to walk through cemeteries.

Enjoy Kiawah Island, Carolina!

Have a wonderful day, friends.

Good morning! I woke up early, sat in the recliner and slept for another hour. Now I'm up and ready for the day. I will be cleaning in the garage again.

Ann, enjoy the day on the beach with your friend.

Teri, I know you will have a great time once you get out of the airport.

Dars, I'm glad you got a date set. It sounds like all will go well and you'll be so happy you did it later.

Pammy, that is sad news for your best friend. I hope she can get a trip arranged to go back.

Good Morning!

Blue sky white clouds sunshine 57 degrees.
Nice day to air out the comforters on the clothes line.
I cleaned and wiped down all my sandals and put away, usually do this after Arub*
:(
Left one pair of Birks out for those Indian Summer days.
Best wishes to Evert and Ingrid that Evert will be home soon, and to Dick on getting into the Doctor.
Have a great trip Teri, and also fun days for Carolinia and family~

Enjoy!

Good evening. Teri, enjoy your trip and safe travels. Pammy, that is just horrible! Laura, I keep sending positive thoughts for Regina.

When I came to the hospital this afternoon, the doctor was with Evert. She was telling him that the lidocaine in the infusion is working well and they want to see if pills will do equally well. But.... these pills aren’t available in the Netherlands and need to be ordered in Germany. And this hospital doesn’t have the licence to order them. The hospital they merged with does, but it ain’t that easy to order through them. Bottom line, she expects Evert to be there for another week. And ofcourse, it is not sure that the pills will have the same effect af the infusion.

There are days that we have problems keeping hope. This is one of those days. We both feel miserable and tired. We so want to put this behind us. All this against the background of more Covid cases in the Netherlands than ever (we are in the top 3 worldwide for most cases per capita), and the hospital (including the heart monitoring ward where Evert is) getting more and more patients with Covid and more and more staff needing to stay home with what might be Covid or just a flu.

Sorry for ranting. I just need to get it off my chest.

Ingrid, I feel so bad for you and Evert not having answers, unable to get the pills that Evert may need. Praying all goes well and I just know you and Evert will stay strong and look ahead. God Bless.

Oh Ingrid, this is not a rant...this is the voice of concern and I am sure frustration. Continued prayers and sending hugs to you and Evert!
