When it Rains, It Pours

Abby Lab here:

Mom asked for warm thoughts and prayers this week.  My Dad's grandmother died suddenly today, then Mom's Dad had a serious health decline and has to go into nursing care tomorrow (he's been living in his home with a nurse's aide Mom provided).  And she is scheduled for a biopsy this week at the horse-spittle because she flunked her mammogram.  She said she practiced closing the refrigerator door on the "Boobsie Twins" but she STILL flunked.  So she has to go to the hospital the day after her Dad is in the nursing care, (1500 miles away) and get that looked after further, all while my Dad is gone for the funeral.

So thoughts and prayers are appreciated.  If you want to send a box of donuts and a bottle of Single Malt Scotch (she is partial to the Pete-E kinds), she said that is also OK.

  1. What do we say? We are sorry about your Dad's loss of his grandmother. We know how hard it will be for your Mom to take Dad to the nursing care home, especially after all she has done to keep him happy in his home. That is never an easy thing to do. As for Mom's own health, you know we did not have a good year here with the Boobsie Twins for our human sister, but keep telling your Mom that there are so many good results that her biopsy can show. We are all crossing our paws and Mom will say her prayers for the test to go well with good news, and for life to be happy again soon.

    Hugs and Woos - Lightning, Misty, and Timber and Mom
