I stayed home from work today. I woke up at 4 am with horrible sinus congestion and a sore throat. I've been burning the candle at both ends and I think my body said enough! I slept until 10 -just woke up - and am thinking of going back to bed after I eat something.

Cute early Christmas chuckle....

The pastor was looking over the crèche the day after Christmas when he noticed that the baby Jesus was missing. He went outside and saw a little boy pulling a new red wagon. In the wagon was Jesus.

We walked up to the boy and said, "Hi, there. Where did you get the baby Jesus?"

The boy answered honestly, "In the church."

"Why did you take him?" the pastor asked.

"Well," said the boy, "I prayed to the Lord Jesus and asked him for a wagon for Christmas. I told Him that if He gave me one, I'd take Him for a ride in it."

Cat - that is actually very sweet!

I am feeling very heart heavy again today. I talked with a friend at church who has been helping my neighbor. I found out some things that just continue to break my heart. Her family has not been there for her much at all. Even when she was in hospice and failing fast, the family thought they needed go to out for lunch before getting there. The mom never held the daughter's hand, told her she loved her, touched her. Now the parents and brother are at the house totally clearing it out this week. They started tossing the kids things Monday morning. Told the kids the cats and other animals are going to the SPCA and everything will be out and done by the weekend. How can they do this to those children? I am devastated even more.

Joanne, how terribly devastating for those sweet children. My heart just breaks. Cannot even begin to understand what these children must be going through. Wish I could scoop them up, hold them and tell them how much they are loved.

Joan - will keep praying for your DH and family as well. I just drove by and I honestly had such nasty thoughts running through my head. Certainly not Christian-like

Julie and I went to the store. I guess I'm not all that much better. I feel awful now. Shakey, weak, TIRED.

Just talked with my gastro guy who wants to put in the hospital due to the 'new labor pains' - that is exactly how it feels. Could have sworn a baby was about to come any moment and was hoping it would be a sweet little girl. Told him that it will have to wait since I am going for shoulder scans tomorrow and seeing the doctor on Friday to discuss surgery. Hey I am getting really popular.

Please take care of yourself, Joanne - feel better.

Btw, can certainly understand your feelings about your friend's children. They have no father in the picture? So sad.

Cat - I am so sorry about your new pains. You have dealt with enough already.

As far as my friend/neighbor, the kids are with the father (they were divorced) but Karen (my friend) didn't want him getting anything out of the house. I don't think she had ANY idea that her family would do something like this. In fact, I think she would be so angry. This poor woman isn't even buried yet and they are just destroying everything in her children's lives. I have been crying all over again.

Thanks Cat!

I have a lot of aunts, uncles and cousins and none of them live close to me. It's so good to be around family....but so sad to leave! I wish we would have stayed longer.

I'm unpacking and doing laundry today. It feels good to just do nothing for a day. I'm still in my jammies

The arthrogram and CT scan went well - all the medical staff were so sweet. The injection in the shoulder was not too bad and the woman who gave it to me and did the arthrogram talked to me the whole time to keep my mind off of what was happening. She asked me what I did today and of course, told her I spend time working with Coles Foundation and gave me her name, phone number and email address to send her info because she wants to get involved.

My FIL was a Purple Heart recipient from WWII. My sister and DH are Vietnam Veterans. I am off with my sister this morning. She will be interviewed on MN Public Radio at 11AM along with the author and a few other nurses.

Well, today is a BIG day for me. I'm meeting my half-sister!!!!

My dad had a one night stand when I was 14 and the woman got pregnant. I briefly knew about this when it happened, but nothing has ever been said since. I knew her name was Danielle and I knew my dad was the father because the mom had a paternity test done. Well, fast forward 23 years and she contacted me through a friend on Facebook yesterday. What a surprise! She called me last night and we talked for awhile and she's coming over to my house today - she lives here in town.

I still haven't fully processed this whole thing, but she's so excited to meet me. I hope we get along.

Doctor's visit went well today. He gave me an other cortisone shot to hopefully hold me over until January for possible surgery. Unfortunately, they will only be able to do one shoulder at a time... sure wish I could get both of them at once.

Caterina - I didn't realize you needed both shoulders done. Oh dear!

Well, I called the doctor today but my appointment isn't until Tuesday. Maybe I'll be better by then and can cancel anyway. I certainly hope so!

cat - My mom had both shoulders replaced and she said it was the best thing she ever did! She felt so good afterwards~! I hope it is as good for you as it was for her. She was like a new woman!
