Sunday evening - decent day

Dear Friends and Family,

Nan is winding down again this evening after a bouts of nausea and fatigue. In spite of feeling poorly she rallied this evening and made noodles and chicken which is a family favorite. she also made rolls in the oven. during the day she tackled green olives and triscuits, drank gatorade and some water. We are noticing a bit of blood in the left nephrostomy. In the past 6 months we have experienced a lot of this same thing but rarely in the left side and not for a good long time now. Terri our wonderful nurse is coming in the morning for blood work and general physical review like she does every money. We like her and appreciate her help so much.

Nan recovered from her night out yesterday and talked on the phone a lot today, to Sharon, to Jan, to Irene, to Nikki, to Jason and thats the ones I know about. She really enjoys talking with people she loves. Nikki and Keanna came to visit today and Nan really enjoyed that. When I got back from making a delivery of appraisals to George and Yvonne I found all the dolls sleeping and carefully covered with little blankets, so cute and so precise.

Tomorrow night we attend a special program with Keanna performing at her school in Brentwood. Got the camcorder ready! Go girl.

Got to see the Travertine floor covering tiles Nikki and Steve picked out and bought for their family room floor, beautiful tiles and it will certainly enhance their home even more. Steve can put the tiles in himself saving money and getting the kind of finished job he demands. It will look great.

Well I'm up at 6 tomorrow with places to see, 9 in Livermore, 11 back here in Discovery and 3:30 in Kensington over by the bay.

I hope you are all enjoying the season with the nice music, XM radio has about 5 channels of Christmas music, I love the classical Christmas channel, lots of choral music. Nan directed my getting Christmas things out this afternoon and we have three wreaths that are lit up in the front along with our Frosty the Snowman inflatable creature, some little trees which are not even seen from the street, still we have some Christmas color out there and I found our fake tree with lights already on it and brought that in.

We are praying for a good week with answers, healing, strength for all including us.

love

tim and nan

    Dear Nan and Tim'

    What a treat it was for us to have you visit us this weekend! That
    really took a lot of effort on your part, Nan, and we felt honored that you choose us for one of your first outings. Lets hope it leads to more visits. I still remember the last time you came to see us and I had been hospitalized. There sure has been a lot happening to us both since then.

    Yesterday was a beautiful day to decorate your home for Christmas. I had our Lodi Community Band Christmas Concert to play in and all went well. We had very little practice time so we were a litle worried about the outcome, but the Lord filled in where needed, like he used to do in some of our choral concerts. Remember?

    We wish for you a very happy week.
    You are in our thoughts and prayers.

    Love,

    Carrol and Bob

    Hi Tim and Nan,

    Yes, I've read every one of your now 252 blogs also. I don't always have the time to reply, but I do read them first thing every morning. I appreciate your effort to keep all of us informed.

    What good news that Nan is up and about more. I'm sure it is with great effort that she goes anywhere with 5 bags to drag along. I'm glad she is getting more adventurous and even doing some cooking. You go girl!

    I spent the night last night with a friend who is in the hospital in Asheville. She gets a bit panicky at night and needs someone to stay with her. She was awake most of the night and as soon as it started to get light she fell into a deep sleep. So, needless to say ~ I got very little sleep last night. She is diabetic, has cellulitis in her left leg and it is very swollen and red, her kidneys are not functioning, difficulty breathing and she is to begin dialysis today. She has reason to be apprehensive!

    We are counting the days until we leave on vacation. We are READY to have a break!!!

    Keep up the good work of healing. Tim, we can see where your mind is.... look at your next to the last sentence in your first paragraph......

    Love and Prayers ~ Carol
