Good evening

Dear Friends and Family,

We are winding down. Nan's wound care nurse came today, replaced the dressings, pronounced it is doing well, replaced the vinyl locks for the nephrostomies. Nan has spent most of her day lying down since things seem to go better than way. She was up for awhile today and again this evening. Nikki and Keanna came to visit bringing dinner and happiness. Keanna took the decorations off the tree in the front room and did a great job of it. She danced with her Dora dancing doll, hugged her grammy and then was gone home to take her bath and go to sleep. Having her here with us for a bit really lifted our spirits.

Nan has had a low day with nearly constant nausea in spite of taking the meds for it.

I drove to Milbrea, SF and then San Jose before heading home. The trusty GPS directed my paths the entire day without a flaw. The poor house in SF was rough, very rough, sad how some people end up having to live. Great guy, been there for dozens of years.

We are looking forward to Nan's birthday celebration on the 28th, sunday. I sincerely hope that by then we have a handle on this nausea and Nan can be feeling better. It was about this time last year when Nan started feeling better and reclaimed her health, drove the car when ever, took trips so perhaps we can do a repeat.

Please pray that God is heal the nausea and leaking or lead us to those who can help.

Tomorrow we have the honor of Art and Connie coming to our house mid morning. Then Art and I will drive to Oakland to do an appraisal and Connie and nan can share some time together. I think I may see if CostCo has tires for my car, the bald ones on the front are scaring me.

Our life has blessings in spite of the down sides, we are thankful to be home, to be warm, to be safe and to have our life with the doggies, fish, our kids, the phone calls, the visits. We are thankful for you, please know that you make a big difference in our lives.

Sending our love to you,

tim and nan

    Good Morning,

    I'm so sorry ~ it doesn't look like the nausea device is going to work on your kind of nausea. Did you try wearing it all day? Like I said, your body has its own uniqueness and doesn't conform to the norm. It was worth a try anyway.

    How nice to have Keanna, that little bundle of sunshine, drop in now and then to brighten your day. What a blessing she has been to you.

    Tim, get those tires! Don't wait for a rainy day when you slide into someone or off the road in some remote area. Those tires are an important tool in your profession and your safety. If Art is riding with you today perhaps he will give you that push you need to just do it.

    You are in our thoughts and prayers many times a day. I check the blog first thing every morning to check on you both. May God continue to bring you peace and gently hold you in His arms today.

    Love and prayers ~ Carol

    I think your nausea thing is about to get us all. There is nothing so controlling as to be subject to this feeling all the time. I pray for your sense of relief. We are all fighting this cold or flu thing and now the stomach bug is going around. Sure hope you stay clear of both. Have had a very long day and need to hit the bed. You are my first concern in the AM and the last concern of each day. I pray for you and love you dearly. Sharon

    Dear Nan and Tim,
    It's the stranger from NC, some would say the strange lady from NC. Hope that you will be able to come visit NC and Dollywood sometime soon. Then maybe we can meet again.

    What a sweet little one Keanna is. I love the pictures that Tim adds. They give me a smile. What a joy grandchildren are. We have 13 grandchildren (2 to 24 years)and 1 great grandson (7 months); all of them in other states. I really miss them. So seeing Keanna, brings back great memories of when the older ones were Keanna's age. We were near them during those years.

    I sure will continue to pray specifically for the nausea to go away and continued healing. You are in my prayers each day.

    Tim listen to Carol...get those tires.

    Love and prayers,
