I'm Back! Missed you all...

Wednesday, February 12, 2014

Let me tell you how annoyed I was to realize when I got to Halifax that I didn't know my password for SP and couldn't talk..... Missed everyone...

Thanks to everyone for comments on last blog and encouragement and prayers for Sheldon. Can't say that I do remember if I spoke up to the English teacher back then, I was pretty shy....but imagine, like 40+ years later and it's still in my mind...

News on Sheldon, docs told them he will have to stay in hospital for 2-3 months (hopefully as short as 6-8 weeks) till he heals and THEN they will do the other surgery... so from start to end, they may be talking as much as 6 months.... They have to take his blood each day and then customize his IV bag (which is like $1000 a bag - paid for while he is in hospital) so while his bowel and bladder are not functioning correctly, he can't leave the hospital. Like Bear said, that could totally wipe out someone's finances...... Anyway, around about talking found a niece who lives out in Edmonton that can put up my sis, so that will at least relieve a lot of the financial stress, and lots of physical stress too, once she is able to cook her own meals again..and it's even closer to the hospital,, so just one bus ride and one block away for the lots of prayers answered....

HAd a safe and great trip to Halifax... even got 3 exercise sessions in while I was there, and of course, all that walking I did while I shopped. Even went to the hairdressing school and had the full meal deal, shampoo, cut and blow dry for $13.80.... and I was pleased with it. Didn't get much reading done, but we all need a rest... Great conversation with my travelling companions and we found a meeting place that didn't put anybody out of their way more than 15 min.....worked out very well...

Well, must go catch up on all I missed... nice to be back...

    Glad you're back and that things went well. I'm sorry Sheldon has so much to go through.

    Sarah and I got on Pinterest and started getting ideas for Sherry's baby shower - we set the date for May 3. So much to do! So many cute ideas on Pinterest! So little time! I'll get there, though, one day at a time.
