Happy Birthday, Mom!

Today is my mom's 85th birthday. I feel so bad because we were not able to have the little celebration we had planned for her. Everyone here has been sick for the past week or so. Ron took her medicine to her today, and also took her some flowers and dinner for the two of them. He is such a sweetheart. He said that she was still in her PJs when he got there, and had forgotten that we had planned to take her out to eat. He assured her that we would have a belated birthday celebration later on this week or next weekend, and she was happy with that.

I had my physical therapy session on Friday, and will go twice a week for awhile. The therapist gave me some exercises to do at home, but I didn't do them over the weekend because I felt so bad. It has nothing to do with the cancer or radiation (I don't think), but is from the cold virus or whatever we all have. I think Reece brought it home from school. Nausea, fatigue, chest cough, runny nose and just a general sick feeling.

After all these 100 degree days, it is finally beginning to cool off a bit. The low in the morning is supposed to be 59 degrees. However, we are desperate for rain. There are wildfires all over Texas, including one in a large subdivision just north of San Antonio. You can smell the smoke outside.

Enough of my rambling. I don't really have anything to say tonight. :o)

Thinking of you every day, Kalona! Sorry you feel under the weather. Those school kids can't help but bring home a germ or two!

God bless you, dear One.

Thank you, Texas Mom. Continued prayers for you and your son. I'm afraid you're right about the school germs--they are inevitable. It sure didn't take long for the whole family to get sick! Take care, and God bless you, too.

Thanks for popping by today, and, yes, rest assured that I am keeping you in continuous prayer.
Happy be-lated birthday to your mum!
