The Hustle and Bustle of Christmas

What a busy week it has been! We have spent several hours every day at the hospital with Daddy. Colby has been such a good boy through all of this. One day we took my laptop and he crawled in bed with Pa and they watched "Horton Hears a Who." It absolutely made Daddy and Colby's day!

Daddy is doing better, but has a long way to come. He has had to have two blood transfusions and he is having trouble keeping his blood pressure up to a suitable level. The conditions for him to be able to come home are that he is able to get up and go to the bathroom by himself. So far he has not been able to stand up by himself. The doctor and insurance company will be letting us know tomorrow what the next step will be. Please keep my Daddy in your prayers. He is so tired of being in the hospital and he is upset about all the things he has missed with his family this week.

On a lighter note, we have almost finished our Christmas shopping. This year to tighten our budget a bit we are only buying for the kiddos. That's what it's all about anyway! We spent part of the afternoon today going from store to store and fighting the COLD!!

Good luck to everyone on getting your last minute Christmas preparation completed!

We'll be remembering you guys. Hopefully, your dad will get his strength back soon, but I bet he really enjoyed the visit with Colby! Merry Christmas to you all!
