Illness Strikes the Homefront....

My husband had open heart surgery with five bypass grafts placed October 21st, 2011. He returned to work this week after eight weeks of medical disability.
My mother was diagnosed with advanced bladder cancer also in October. She had her first surgery on October 7th, 2011 and her last surgery on November 21st, 2011. After a 16 day stay in the hospital she was discharged to rehab at  a skilled nursing facility, 15 minutes from here. The surgeon was unable to remove her bladder due to the advanced condition of the disease. She has an ileal  conduit with a urostomy that she is learning to cope with..........Needless to say, I haven't blogged much lately!
The sheep are all fine and doing well, something I am much grateful for......I have some new pics of our sheep I would like to get posted but I don't know exactly when I'll have the time.......

Everyone stay well!!!!


  1. Wow Lorraine, you certainly have your plate full of things this fall/winter. I had wondered where you were, and now it makes sense that we haven't seen you for a bit. I will keep you and your family in my prayers. Take care and God Bless.
    Oh, and Merry Christmas.

  2. Thanks for the warm wishes, Kelly!
    Things have been hectic as of late.......

    A Blessed New Year to you and yours!!!
