Chris, your DGD is adorable and I’m sure you’re very proud of her having a solo at just 5 years of age. That’s quite something. Two of my granddaughters took dance and we saw lots of recitals but no solos. Those girls are both nurses now, living together in Chicago and working at good hospitals. However, the youngest probably has Covid as she has a lot of the symptoms, they are waiting for the test to confirm it. Since they live together, I feel sure the older one will get it also. With working at the hospital, I’m surprised they weren’t infected until now. I’m just praying that they won’t be too sick and will be well by Christmas so we could at least enjoy that after our lonely Thanksgiving. I was so sorry to read about your trip to the ER, I know how scary that is for you and especially DH if he’s anything like my DH. My first episode happened the day my allergist called to say a chest X-ray showed the tumor in my lung which was the BC that had metastasized. It happened again not long after I started IBrance and I’m assuming that was the cause but don’t know. It’s all scary when we have cancer.
Nancy, I’m sorry you won’t be spending Thanksgiving with you sister this year especially since I’m sure you are both grieving your mother. It would have been nice to be together right now but it’s understandable that you can’t. It seems like nothing and no one is safe anymore. Please God let this awful year and virus come to an end. I’m praying the vaccine works and we can get it sooner rather than later.
This past week has been very stressful in both good and bad ways. DH was able to unexpectedly get an appointment with a new knee doctor that he liked and will maybe finally get a knee replacement, which scares me, but he really needs it. Of course now with Covid, it will probably be delayed for months. I keep telling myself, God always has perfect timing. Sure hope so! The other stressful thing happening which is good if I can do it, my choir is going to do a virtual Christmas song to play at the Christmas Eve service that will be online. We are all supposed to make a video of ourselves singing “Do you hear what I hear?” Well, I haven’t sung a note since March so my voice is terrible right now. We have to memorize the whole thing so we are only looking at the camera while singing. I’m used to singing with a director to bring us in at the right measure so my timing isn’t good without direction. Once I figure out how to do this I have to upload to a specific site and I’m not very technical. So, I could use a few prayers that I can do this and have it done this week. I’ve decided if it’s too stressful, I just won’t do it. However, I’ve been a member since day one when they started the choir before the church was even built and we were meeting in a school gym. So, I need to do this. Please pray that I can make a semi-good video.
Praying always for all of you. Jean, so happy to hear you will at least get to meet that new great grand baby and see your granddaughter. Ade, thinking of you and hope you and James are well. Nancy, I love that sunset picture. It’s so unusual which makes it good.
Well, have a goodnight all, sleep well.
