Oh no, so sorry, PF. Thoughts and prayers for you and your family, and for you and yours too, LP.

GDIL is out of the ICU as of 10 this morning. Grandson is home and sitting with her, she is barely awake, they haven't told her about the baby, yet. That will be when she is more alert this afternoon. Now it's down to if they need more people around. We will be deciding if we need to be there. I may just send Shrek down for a week.

As you (and so many others) have said to me more than once, you do what you feel you need to do. We are all here for you and Frank and the gang can hold the fort. Take good care of yourself and your family! Work and DC will manage!

More hugs and prayers being sent over hill and dale and border crossings!

Thanks, Dawg.

I phoned and Dad had another bad night last night and is very down today. He said he doesn't want us to bother coming to see him like that but I know better. We need to take some stuff up to him and DH hasn't seen him in over a week. The nurse said he coughed up some ugly stuff so they took a sample. This may mean back to the hospital if it is infection.

As for me, still no voice but the stabbing throat pain is a bit better. I got a much better sleep.

Today I am doing some paperwork for Dad, starting off on all our income taxes with what documentation I have so far, hemming more pants and prepping for DH's week (washing uniforms, boiling eggs, cooking bacon, etc.). Then we are going to watch a movie after dinner - either "The Transformers #3", "The Bridesmaids" or "A Dolphin Tale".

It was good in the sense that it raised funds for the school & teacher salaries. But, it was very political & there seemed top be an uneasy stress about the evening. Not what I expected. I thought it would have been more about the community of people from church & school in a more social setting.

no i don't go to see them. i generally don't go out at night. they often play out of escondido. i don't drive, so the whole thing would be a hassle. the singer, suzanne harper, is married to my youngest grandson. they have two children. both have full time jobs as does the drummer, my oldest grandson. i am proud of all my grandkids and great grandchildren. thanks for listening to them. they will be stoked.
