Movin' On Over (Tip of the hat to George Thorogood)

Well,
sometimes with the good there is the bad... The good is that Lou was moved from the long term hospital to an extended care facility to do some rehab and work towards getting home. The bad? Well, that's a double whammy. First, the ECF is about 25 miles from her home which isn't too bad but it's going to be harder on Terri who doesn't drive on expressways. She freaks out on them I guess. The ECF is out town and the way there is via the expressway. The worse news is that Terri told me yesterday that she (Terri) went to the doctor and some of the cancer has come back in the lower part of her body and has spread some. Not good. But Terri talked about it matter of factly and was more concerned about Lou than about herself. Typical Terri. And she would in the past seemed worried and sad about it... not this time. She is in a lot of discomfort and pain, but she is more determined than ever to battle this thing. Please keep the prayers coming... She was baby-sitting her nephews and was making plans to cook a feast for the Superbowl and it dawned on me that she has such great faith. I wish mine were that strong... But seeing the family persevere, that strengthens my faith. And with faith comes (dare I say it?) HOPE?

Great news about Lou, sorry to hear it presents another hardship for Terri.

Terri is the most courageous, compassionate woman I know (through your words). I continue to keep both women in my prayers on the smoke. (Hugs)Indigo

Mik, I ditto what Indigo says about Terri. I have been and will continue to hold her and y'all in my prayers. Thank you for keeping us posted Mik. While Terri has much faith, I don't see yours waver as much as you might think it does. ((()))s to you Mik. God Bless.

Let's hope that Terri's condition can be improved. Good to hear that Lou is so much better now.
