Rindy, it is very hard losing both parents. When I lost my mother last year I realized that I could no longer tell her things or continue discussions on topics we used to talk about or events we would keep up on. That has been hard. Plus, it makes you face your own mortality because YOU are the older group now and the next generation to die. My sisters have all realized that even more so now. My parents were in California where I grew up. I am in Arizona. Like you said, it is in the cards for me too with my family history, so yes I watch my health.
I am glad that you are doing better with your brother. I know that it is hard and it takes a very long time. I had one brother. He was 18 when he died in a car accident.
Hi Rose, did you say shorts?? It was warm here today but it was only 59. I am so sorry about your brother! You have really been through it haven't you. Yes, since I am the baby of the family I will probably have to go through my other brother and my sister. UNLESS, I go first of course! I miss my Mom so much also! We used to go shopping every Saturday she was no doubt my best friend. Its so nice to have you to talk to...
Wizard, thanks for bringing this to my attention. I will say that is a lot of prayers. nothing God can't handle. I may have to get a paper and pen lately with all this happening. I hope all turns out well for them. You know I think everyone here at Celtic Radio could use a prayer right now. Seems we are all troubled in one way or another guess that is part of life. Just seems to me more than normal!
Mary! It is always great talking to you too. Goodness, I just looked in on "Where is Bluegrasslady" and she really has a plateful right now. Poor gal. It is funny because I was just thinking about her yesterday. Sorry to hear the sad news.
There are a lot of people missing and I wonder if they are ok as well.
Hope you are doing well yourself. Keep me posted on your family.
While trying to catch up on all I've missed the past couple of months I wanted to check in to see how everyone was doing on this post and I came across the message from WizardofOwls asking for prayer for me. What a thoughtful thing for him to do. He has such a kind heart. There are so many kind hearts here and I am so thankful to be a part of this group of people.
And I agree, Rindy, that everyone here could use a prayer right now. We never know how prayers will be answered but we do know that they are. I hope you are doing okay. I am so sorry to hear of your brother. It is important to take care of yourself, I have a family history of heart trouble. Both of my parents along with my brother and sister have had heart attacks so I am taking whatever steps I can to stay healthy.
CelticRose, how are you doing? Is Irish on the mend? Am jealous that you can run around in shorts in January. I am thankful that it hit 59 here today. Nowhere near short weather!!
Hi there Bluegrasslady! so good to hear from you. All is well here and Irish is on the mend and wild as ever! She is such a Princess! LOL I am afraid I am not in shorts this week. The temps have dropped and so I am in my sweat pants to keep warm. How are things going along with you now? Keep us updated on things so we can continue to pray. Take care of yourself too!
Bluegrasslady, thank you for your thoughts on my brother. I am at the stage where it all seems like a dream now. I do miss him. I am so glad you are back. Yes, I agree it is very wise to take care of yourself but I do also think when it is your time its your time. In the mean time lets all pray for one another can't hurt.. You let us know what all is going on with you...
Today has been a good day. In fact only one day is planned at the doctors this week. On Friday my dad has to have the cat scan of his kidneys then trot the film across the street to the urologist who will check the film and decide whether he needs to use a schope for any further tests. Dad has actually stopped losing weight. Thank goodness since he weighs in at 120lbs.

I too hope for the best for the Friday tests!
"All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost; The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring; Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king..."
Good news regarding todays tests for my dad. The ct scan showed no problems and the scope discovered a bit of swelling in the prostate which is causing the bleeding. Meds should take care of the problem. The doctor told us he was very surprised with the results as he was fairly certain that he was going to find either some type of tumor or other abnormality. I feel that it was the power of prayer. Next hurtle will be him recovering from pneumonia. Please keep the prayers coming!!
I got accepted into Meredith College! I am so excited!! (does a little dance around her cubicle) So, now I just need mucho financial aid! Please pray for that! This is such a great school, and I would love to have the experience of going to college and finishing my degree. Thanks!
