Update on sister

Yesterday I went to a cousin's funeral. All of the grandparents, parents, aunts and uncles have passed away - and the cousins are sure getting older. My cousin had been in a nursing home with Alzheimer's for awhile, and the pastor talked a lot about the disease - which surprised me. I liked his message about how she may have forgotten us, but we have not forgotten her - and most important of all - God did not forget her.

When my sister was not responding - I worried about her forgetting us - Praise the Lord - she knows us all. I am so glad that she knows Jesus.

She has been transferred from ICU at the hospital to the rehab next door - and is not happy. She gets confused, depressed, scared, alone and angry. I've been praying that she will feel God's loving arms around her giving her comfort and hope.

Thanks for all of your prayers.

From ICU to rehab is a big step forward, ha? I am so glad for that. I guess it is natural for her to feel depressed. Hope the therapy works and she bounces back soon.

Oh, I saw your works .. you are really something! And you had a contest while my back was turned. Oh ... only US residents could participate?!

I will gladly pay for the cost of shipment. hahaha
