My coworker's mom died yesterday at 1:15 pm. She was there for the several last hours of her mom's life.

Mornin' nanners! How's everyone?

Not much to say this morning, just checking in. Weather here is unseasonably warm and I'm enjoying that. I'm also enjoying not having to run the heat so often.... Oil tank's getting low.

One day of work this week and then I'm off to see my dad. Finally got a good report on him Thursday night and that was encouraging. Let's hope the improvement continues.

Glad to hear your dad is improving! I may take Friday off this week since the kids have it off. That will make meeting you for coffee much easier.

I'll also be free all day Sunday, since (as far as I know) my dad leaves for their cruise that morning. But either one works, just let me know! Looking forward to it.

We're having a pool party on Saturday and you are more than welcome to come over. But I know you are there to be with your dad.

Hey nanners! Gee, quiet around here today. Just popping in to say hi -- I'm going to unplug for the next week while at my dad's, so no computer and no DIS.

MQ, see you in a few days!

PaMom, I am sorry for your friend. Big hugs for you to.

I am someone who also has firsthand experience with dementia / Alzheimer's, as my paternal grandmother suffers from both. Just recently the decision was made in the family to put Grandma in a home. She has no idea who we are anymore. It is hard. She is such a sweet lady, always has a BIG smile when she sees Squirt. It's hard. I said that already. Anyway, I just finished making a quilt for one of my DIS friends who is expecting in February, and now I'm going to work on a nice lapghan for Grandma to have at the home.

And on the home front, I'm having knee surgery on Wednesday. I've got a meniscus tear in my right knee and they're going to repair it. I'm nervous...and a little scared. I know it's routine, and normal, and quick, and yadda yadda, but it's still my body. Any nanners who are the prayerful type, it sure would be appreciated. I'll find out tomorrow what time my surgery is and keep you all posted.

TK, I won't be around the computer world much for the next week, but text me if you need to! You'll do fine.


And to all you babnanas -- SadieDog messaged me on FB and asked me to let you all know she hasn't dropped off the earth but is having computer issues....again. Poor SD!! Anyway, the DIS is very slow to load so she's not even trying to stop in right now, but she hopes to be back soon!

Good luck with your surgery. I hope you heal fast!

It's all that ice fishing she does, it froze up her computer.
