Merry Christmas everyone!

It’s a bit of a somber Christmas in our neck of the woods. Mom has been struggling over the past week with lots of confusion and health struggles. After a 36-hour wait in the ER, she finally made it into the hospital Thursday night. She had an operation yesterday (the 24th) to remove fluids from the sac around her heart. The docs extracted 700ml (which is a lot) and left a tube in to drain more. Needless to say, this indicates her heart is struggling mightily. Without some kind of miracle, she probably has weeks left at the very most. So, Ann and I are having a quiet holiday season at our new home this year.

We hope everyone else has an enjoyable holiday season with your families and friends. And, I hope you all are blessed with good fortune in 2022!

    MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and Ann. This is a tough season in life with your Mom. Continue to cling to the true meaning of CHRISTMAS, and the Joy it brings.

    David and Ann,

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this trying time. My mother (94+) has issues at this time of the year as well. She passed shortly prior to her birthday in January a good number of years ago. It also was a trying time for our family as it is with yours. But she now is at peace.

    All the best to you,

    I’m sorry to read of the struggle and hard times you all are going through, but thankful for the best wishes for the holidays and new year. Take care and stay safe.
