Keeping the Faith...

Hey folks...
nothing much new to report right now. Lou is still hanging on in the hospital. She is one tough lady. She recognizes us and she fades in and out but she still knows us and whispers to us. It was a shock to her though that we're approaching Christmas. She thought we were still in summer. Poor thing. Terri is so apathetic right now as we approach Christmas. This is usually our favorite holiday as a family. Terri is usually the one who gets the most excited (next to Lou) about Christmas. But this year, it's been so hard on everyone that Terri is not even doing her tons of cookies and all sorts baking this year. She's making some cornflake wreaths because those were Lou's favorites but not much more than that. I hope she'll change her mind as we get closer to Christmas. We'll all get together as a family but it won't be the same without Lou. But we must do this for the little ones so they can enjoy it. They don't understand so we are going to make it special for them. Because Lou would be the biggest kid amongst them, getting into the presents, food, and just being a kid. That's what Lou loved to do most... Hope you all have a Merry Christmas (sorry, I'm not politically correct... never have been, never will be!) I will be back on this little goofy corner of the cyber-world before too long...

Mik, I hope Lou can come home to you all soon. I hope too that Terri and all of you can get more into the Christmas spirit for Lou. I can't imagine how hard it is, but I hope Terri can do it for Lou's sake. ((()))s to you all Mik, and I pray you all have a Blessed Christmas and that you will all remember and know the Peace that Jesus gives which surpasses all our understanding.
God Bless you Mik.

Thanks for the update, Mik. Pleased Lou still recognises you all. I'm sad to read that it has taken its toll on Terri, but wish you all a Merry Christmas. I think it's not politically correct NOT to wish someone a Merry Christmas :-D
