Time Again

Sorry to be so lackadaisical with the posting. We have been pretty busy around here and things have been in somewhat of an upheaval. I have been working on getting my mom into a private care home. We are hoping to have her moved in a month. I am having trouble accepting this change. It is hard to see her have to part with almost all her belongings and give up most of her independence.

John will be admitted into the hospital on June 17 for his second transplant so we have been trying to get things organized around the house and yard. I won't have time except for the most basic and that is even a stretch. It does make me sad. He has been feeling pretty good lately and has been off the couch and very much engaged in life. It will be hard to see him knocked down again. I will be doing updates on The John Braun Page while he is in the hospital and during his recuperation. I find that I have so much on my mind. When I do have spare time, I really don't want to think let alone write. I seem to go for the mindless games on facebook. It helps me relax.

Hugs dear. I am going to be away on holiday when John is in hospital, so I won't be able to read nor comment. Praying that everything goes well. I'll be sending you good vibes from one of my favourite places on earth, how's that huh? Take care my friend. And relax as much as you can. xxx

i can totally understand that. there are times we just don't feel like writing and keeping up with it all. sounds like you have a lot on your plate.

i'm sorry to hear about your mom. it must be hard for all of you. and then to have to deal with the mental, physical, and emotional strain of what john will be going through makes it overwhelming, i'm sure. you'll both be in my prayers.

Sorry to hear about your mom. It is a difficult decision to make. Ed made the decision himself when he went into the home. He was there just over a year and only once said he'd like to come back home. It's easier when they don't continually long for home.

I will be keeping good thoughts for you and John. And I'll keep you in my prayers. Health challenges are so - challenging! Don't worry about posting. Your friends will be here when you get back.

You take all the time you need Christine! All the best for John! I will be burning a candle (or a bunch of candles) for the both of you!
Big hug,
