Thanks for Your Thoughts and Good Luck!

Just a brief posting today to keep you up to date ... My World is very topsy-turvy at the moment! I'm still not feeling well and I believe there are a lot of others like me - just a nasty bug going about, so I WILL get better.

Things are not at all good with my Mum and seems she will have to go into a nursing home and I am not coping with this, as I had hoped the day would never come.

Be happy and keep stitching - hugs!

Hi Lurline...
I hope you all get over your bugs real soon.
I don't know your situation with your mother, but I do understand the turmoil you are dealing with. One of our quilting gals had to put her husband into a nursing home. It had been a struggle for her, but now that a few months have gone by she realizes it IS for the best, for him, AND her.
It will be an adjustment for the whole family. Sometimes it is harder on the children than the individual going into the nursing home.
You are in my prayers...
God bless...

Sorry that you are still fighting that nasty bug. I hope you are getting rest, sometimes that's all you can do. I know many of the feelings you are having about your mom. I'm sure that you have always done your loving best for your mother, and you will continue to do so even if you aren't able to care for her at home anymore.

I hope you will be able to kick the nasties soon so you can take care of your Mum's needs. Feeling yucky makes it just too hard to think and cope. You and your Mum are in our prayers.

had to make the decision with my Mum to put my Pop into care......it was very difficult decision but a necessary one as you also need to "keep going".......the kids have been pretty sick with the colf/flu thingy also so take it easy it has really knocked them around........
