Busy Schedule

It has been a busy time for me lately.  My DH has been undergoing radiation.  That is now finished for the time being.  He will have seeding done early Feb., followed by more radiation in about 6 months. 

My mother was in the hospital, then rehab over the holidays.  We no more than got her home, and my sister went in the hospital for about 10 days.  My mother is regaining strength a little bit at a time.  A medication she was taking was causing internal bleeding.  Couple that with a bad heart valve and COPD, she was really very weak.

My sister, had some sort of lung inflammation.  They thought it was pneumonia or bronchitis, but that was not the case.  She is now home, and regaining strength daily.  She has to take steroids for the inflammation, which causes her blood sugars to go up, so now she has to give herself insulin shots till the inflammation clears up.

My back has gotten worse, and now the doctor has me in a back brace.  Between RSD and the back issues, I frequently am in a lot of pain myself.  It seems like a lot going on in our family.  God is good to us though, and if we only focus our eyes on Him our problems seem so small in the scheme of things.  

I have a card that I will be getting a picture of and figuring out how to post soon.
