Family Leave





Hello dear friends! I have missed you all. Unfortunately we have a family member who is extremely ill and I have been staying with her in the hospital which happens to be about 60 miles away from my home. My husband has been helping out a lot and taking care of things at home.

I started carrying my computer there, but it has become too much to lug-- the patient has been moved around alot, out of critical care, to general care and then back to critical care. I am happy to report she is being moved back to the general floor today. But I will have to leave my computer home to lighten the load I am carrying around. It's probably just as well because I never had an opportunity to post on my blog anyways.

I have my phone so I will try to answer emails but I would appreciate any prayers or positive thoughts you could send our way. We have a long road ahead.

I look forward to being back among my blog friends. Take care!

  5. Dearest Linda,
    I have missed you so much, and if I hadn't been traveling across the country to visit children and grandchildren I would have sent out an
    SOS. I took my computer with me as well, and they are such a hassle to carry about. Glad you left it behind, I think long term they would cause back issues.
    I am sending you hugs and sisterly love that your family member will improve and that you won't overdo and remain strong.
    With love,
    Jemma

You have been in my prayers, and I most certainly will be praying for your family member as well, and I hope that things will settle back down to normal for you soon!

    1. Marilyn,
      Many thanks for your prayers and kind words. She is rehabbing close to home so I am able to spend lots of time with her and be home in less than 15 min. So much easier all the way around. Thank you so much!

  14. Linda, I started looking for Sew What's latest post on my blogroll tonight and finally found it down the list. I think I had dropped out of blogging for a week when you posted this.

    I hope things are much better now with your loved one. And that you'll be back among us soon.

    Love to you,
    Dewena

      Love to you too!
      Linda
