Hi and a big sorry to you all that I have not been on much this last week. I have been rather ill but recovering now. I want to ask you all to include my dearest mother she's 83 and is in hospital awaiting tests I am so worried about her so please include her in your prayers
Please be patient with me if I fail to do much commenting or posting for the next few days
I should know more after her tests tomorrow. I can't even go and see her until tomorrow because of the infection I had which although sensible really sucks

    An update. My mum came home today, she will have to go back for results of tests and is on steroids to stop her going blind. She still is weak and shaken up but cheerful. I thank everyone who prayed for her Shadow x smile

    You have our family's heart and best wishes with you... My Father was 82 when he got gastro intestinal cancer. I stayed with him thru the surgery and chemo. He beat the cancer and is back riding his motorcycles at 82... He lives alone but we talk every day... He'll be 83 at the end of the month... He's slower but happy... I'll say a prayer for your mother... Miracles DO happen... remember that...

    I'm so sorry you've been ill. Praying for both you and your mother to return to health, and that your mother's test results will be good news. Don't worry about the Soup. Family comes first and we'll still be here when you're able. Love, Kim
