Boy, I Was Doing So Good ...

At posting to my blog,  that is ...  
             I was really committed  ... 

Then the closing of Bearpaws and Hollyhocks was in full swing, right up into the new year.  Our #3 son, who was home for a week before Christmas,  returned to school and work the last week of the break, and life went on until the  end of  last week when he called to tell us that he was very sick.  The doctor said, "A virus, just go home and rest, treat the symptoms."  It has been a very hard week being a long distance mother with a sick son far away and even though the poor guy was doing the right things and going to the doctor, he kept getting sicker.  This afternoon he was admitted to the hospital and both DH and I have scrambled and we should be by his bed side by dinner time tomorrow.  I will keep you posted if there is time, as I am taking my laptop with us.  My heart is aching for him, and his worsening pain/condition and the prayers on my lips are constant.  

Please keep him in your prayers.
