  1. Good Morning Dear Friends,

    Firstly I am so very sad for AKY and the loss of her dear Jim. This has ripped out my heart and it aches so badly for her. It is times like this that you want to hold her close and comfort her in a way that posts, emails etc just cannot do. I pray she has some one with her and is not alone at this time. Gosh I just want to cry for this dear woman.

    Busy day yesterday working outside for hours mowing and cleaning the porch so we can get ready to stain it.

    Enjoyed a hike with the dogs and plan to do so again today then come home and relax. Exhausted from yesterday but did not sleep enough to make myself feel more rested.

    Planning on a Nana nap later today but other than that just watch a program I taped earlier in the week and organize work lists etc.

    May you all have a safe productive day and keep AKY in your thoughts and prayers.

    Good Morning -

    aknottedyarn - I'm thinking of you, too. I hope you're with close friends and family, and not alone. I was thinking about the afternoon when my mother and I had lunch with you. She thoroughly enjoyed meeting you as did I. Please know that we, your friends at allnurses, care for you. When you're feeling up to it, how about another lunch or dinner out? Amy would enjoy meeting you, I'm sure. As you know, the area is beautiful.

    It's sad beyond words losing a loved one.

    Getting ready for church. Choir rehearsal begins at 9:15. After church, Amy and I hope to do some hiking.

    Very sad to hear about AKY and her SO, I really thought he was making progress...

    Morning Ted and Sabby.

    Nothing really going on around here, going to see my dad and get ready for tomorrow. Did some shopping and some cooking yesterday and got outside too.

    I am so sad for AKY over the loss of Jim. I hope she is with family and friends who will comfort her. I know she knows she also has all of us here at AN, and she is not alone.

    It's been a quiet weekend for me. DS is home for the weekend, therefore my car is gone! I don't care. He did a lot of yard work for me and I'm happy to catch glimpses of him as he runs in and out! I'll be heading to a football game later this afternoon with my sister. I think I'll be needing a hat and gloves for this one, as it will go into the night.

    Off to pick up the house a bit. I'm sending continued prayers to AKY and family.

    Good morning. I read about Jim last night during my last log-on to allnurses before bed. Very sad indeed and glad aky has folks in her life to help her and that she knows we will too.

    Spidey is up watching cartoons - not a big deal for kids anymore as they are on 24/7. I loved it when I was a kid and the cartoons were on Saturday morning. You got up before your parents, who loved to sleep in on Saturday, and watched Bugs Bunny and Fred Flintstone.

    Thinking about going to Sunday School - we rarely have one and I love the teaching of our pastor. Husband is already out on a tractor.

    Hope you all enjoy your Sunday.

    Good day.
    Thank you all for your kind words. Right now I am alone with my dog and The Moody Blues. This is my choice for now. Later we will meet at the funeral home. i spent time with my next door friend and neighbor last night and again this morning. I am going through mail that has piled up for 2 weeks. I plan to make soup today. I love the smell of it cooking. It is a comfort food for me.

    I will probably spend some time with my DS and DIL.
    Again, thank you. Ted, I will come visit soon. Jim enjoyed meeting you and your mom. A visit to you had been on the horizon until this. I will still make it.

    aky, thank you for keeping us in the loop.
    I feel like extended family, hovering in the background -- not REAL family, entitled to all the details, but caring nonetheless.
    And we do care.
    None of us is immune to loss of a much-loved one.
    We grieve with you, and send strength to put one foot in front of the other and continue on.
