Good Sunday afternoon, my Christmas friends!

We're walking out the door, heading to my mom's house for lunch. Then I think we'll head over to Savannah for some shopping. I don't even mind, because I think I can talk them into stopping at Bass Pro Shops...maybe even Krispy Kreme!

I hope you all have a great day!

I work every Sunday and usually miss the NASCAR races. Now that I am home sick I will be watching the Daytona 500. This will the first race I have watched in a long time.

I sure hope Jeff Gordon wins!

Sounds like a good plan except for the Gordon comment. So glad to see you on the way to being healthy again. so far this winter I been lucky and not caught anything yet. Hope you enjoy the race that Tony is going to win.

I felt so bad for Wayne because I am not the type to say "do this and do that" but I had no choice and had him running back and forth to get things for me and help me out all night Friday and all day Saturday. I was so weak that I felt like I was going to pass out if I stood up. I kept telling him "I'm sorry" and kept thanking him for helping me. He didn't understand why I kept apologizing but I just hate to keep running him around like I did.

Finally about 7:00 pm I did manage to eat a few crackers and some sip on some vegetable broth. This morning I got down a piece of toast.

I still feel very weak and it will take some time to get better.
Awww...CAH.....Don't feel bad. I am glad you are feeling better. I am sure Wayne didn't mind a bit. You sound like such a good "patient."

You are a wonderful husband and caretakre.

My wife's other grandmother is in the hospital now also with pneumonia and her lungs are filling with fluid and her heart is weakening, so she wants to run down to the hospital to see her since it may be her last chance, she put her self on the do not resuscitate list, I think she has wanted to "go home" for the last few years she misses her husband who died back in the 90's. I will not be able to go in unfortunately while I am sick though. My wife's grandmother in Canada is not much better either but she has been eating again.

Have a good day.
Xmas I hope you feel well soon. I will say prayers for the grandmothers and you xo

Good idea, MC. I will too. I have worked with too many third graders and know that Carl could come up with lots of ideas of how to use glue and/or paste in ways not yet known to man!!!
