Yesterday my Brother died. Funeral this week.. Guess it was meant to be.
He been ill since my Man died 3 years ago. White corpuscels killing the red ones. 3 years of blood transfusions an chemo. Every week something different.
Now in the end he had bacteria in his blood an they could not get it out. They said there was 24 different types of bacterian. ?? It did him in, Only took a week.
Moral of the story is, watch blood transfusions..... He was 78 an so loved, by many.

His poor wife is a bundle of bones, an had numerous operations herself, arms an legs.
Anyway Merry Christmas to all.....An appreciate the little things in life, cause all ends too soom......Money cant buy the presence of a loved on. :ding:

Of course we care, Barb. I am glad that you had the Birthday party to distract you, even if it only did so for awhile.

Thanks Nana
went up to see his widow today.. We cryed an laughed together, Poor girl doctored him for 3 years.. Never gave up.. Spent 10 days in out of town hospital both stayed there. She washed her clothes in the sink an stayed at his side.

The place they brought him back to, Home town hospital .. She was alone with him, at 2:30 am.. She was praying , well we call it the Rosary, an nurse walked in an said I heard you praying Mary, then she looked real odd.. Mary said whats wrong? The nurse said , hes gone. He is dead. That shook her pretty hard. Just cant help but love her devotion.
Most women would of walked out on that, before 3 years.. She didn't.

I had to go to my grandgirls birthday party in the afternoon, an the roads were horrible.
So son came for me an we had a nice time at his home.
Not only that , before son came for me, my neighbor man came in the door an says, do you want your deer out there?? What? Deer......
One was laying by my garage an he watched if come here, it wasn't dead, He said if you don't want it I will take it . I said heavens yes take it . So he had his friend shoot it an they took it home to butcher.....
What a day.
Now if the roads are nasty 2maro for the wake, My brother will pick me up.. Isnt that nice.
My only living brother.. Used to be 10 of us. 5 boys 5 girls.. we are down to 2 girls an one girls.
Its hard loosing large familys.. Very hard.
Well I best shut up an give some one else room here. Thanks all of you for thinking of me in my sorrow.

Barb, if talking helps then THAT is what you do. We all need to talk from time to time & the rest of us are here to listen. Now it is just your turn. kissie

That is how it works.

My sympathies to you, your S-I-L & your whole family...

Well, sad as that may be, it may be the wiseest decision, Barb.

I hope the weather co-operates though.

Good thinking Carol..
What day did it get here? They put it by the garage door an I was not in the garage daily..
I was wondering how I missed it.. Bu I guess I wasn't home for 3 or 4 afternoons.
Thank again girlie........
I shall get even with you later, after the the North pole weather leaves me in the spring.
I am waiting till Christmas day to open those..Suprises.

Your too good carol.
Thank you kindly.

Well, as I recall it was ME getting even with you. bow
Remember that lovely black/gold lame`scarf with the dove pen that you sent to me last year ?

I sent it USPS...It got there the 11th--in the afternoon I think. I am guessing that your mailman didn't want it to get ruined in the ice & snow--so he chose the garage as a resting place. That was certainly nice of him.

Open them as you wish---I often do the same myself.
