Update on Betty and more

Good Morning all, hope this finds everyone having a great week so far. It's hard to believe that we are half way through the week already.

I wanted to give a little update on Betty. She is in the hospital for the next several days and then we will go from there. Apparently she has a blood clot in one of her lungs and has a infection in both.THe doctors are saying it isn't pneumonia. After the doctors visit yesterday, he informed her that it could take between 4-6 months for the clot to dissolve. Also she is on oxygen and she is hoping to get off of it soon, but we have no word on that. Apparently with the oxygen level higher now, she is eating better and feeling better. So not sure if the oxygen is going to be a mainstay for awhile. Our prayer is that she will continue to feel better so that she can resume her chemo treatments. Her spirits have been down for awhile now, so hoping that they will be better as well. I want to thank you all for praying for her, it truly means alot to Michael and I as well as his folks. They thank you for the prayers, as prayers are really all we have.

Other than work, not alot going on this week. Michael is swamped in his new job and so we don't see each other to much during the week, and with Tori gone all week, it makes my evenings very quite. I am enjoying the time to myself though. Mainly doing low key type stuff and getting rest.

I took some pictures over the weekend of some of my yard sale finds and projects that I am working on, so hoping I can get some uploaded to share with you in the next day or two. You wouldn't believe the mess I have sprawled out in my living room floor. I am still in that organizing mode, which I feel like I have been in all year. It is a slow process for me, but I know once it is done I never want it to get in the shape it was in ever again. It's one of those things that I have put off doing for years, I have tidbits all over the place that I have saved and cut out and printed out, etc and had never really put in a proper place. So that is what I am working on now. I am building binders and folders to house this information so that it is easy to access and retrieve when I need or want it. It's getting there, and it's a good feeling. Sometimes I only have 15 minutes to devote to the project so it is going to remain on my living room floor until it is done. Figure that way, I will keep at it.

I took the time to finally set up all my RSS feeds over the weekend. Loving that. Why I didn't do that sooner is beyond me. It is so easy to stay in the loop and not miss out on any new post. Granted I had to put my list on three different computers, because that is what I use on a normal basis. Is there a easier way? If so, not sure what it is.

I don't know about you, but I love to peek into others homes and get inspired to. If any of you ladies are like me, hop over to my homemaking blog as there are some wonderful links there for home decorating inspiration. Sometimes I just drool when I look at these homes. The women are so wonderful too. Let'em know that you found there link on my blog.

For now, going to close, might be back later. If not, have a super day and remember "To the world you might be one person, but to one person you might be the world".

Hi Cindy, not sure how you do the RSS feeds, but I signed up for bloglines, and I can access it on any computer. I only had to enter the urls' once for that. And yes, it's really nice knowing when someone has pasted.
I do hope things improve for Betty. Hope your week is going well.
My eyes are feeling great, how's yours?
Hugs Denise

Hi Cindy! I'm glad you are enjoying your time in the evenings. It is always nice to have some 'alone' time, isn't it? I hope Betty continues to improve. Have a great day sweetie. Big hugs!

Hi girlfriend! Hope Betty is doing better this week. Give Michael a hug from me! I let last week go by and now my house is a mess again! Just can't seem to get in a routine anymore! When we first got married, I cleaned on a certain day and did everything in order! Don't know what has happened to me! Hope you are having a good week! Maybe with Michael and Tori gone during the week we can get together for dinner? Hugs

Hey Cindy! I'm back home and back to blog hopping! My sister was the internet police at her place so I wasn't able to stay too long online without her nosing about asking what I was doing on my computer - lol. Big sisters never change!! hee hee

I'm sorry that Betty has had a rough go of it lately. Bless her sweet heart! Doug & I continue to pray for her & all of you during this long and difficult road.

Big hugs & hope you have a GREAT week!!

Hugs xo
