Tuesday Turn About #128 Chocolatey Reindeer

Spread the love

The party has started with Tuesday Turn About #128 Chocolatey Reindeer. We have LOTS of Christmas fun, and an update on ‘life’ at My Wee Abode.


Last week, we had some lovely Christmas crafts to start now!

Well, this week has been quite crazy, which is par for the course around My Wee Abode these days.

After last week’s party post and ‘life’ update, my mom took a turn for the worse that very day and ended up in the hospital with us fearing that a ventilator was inevitable.

Praise be to our God that she did NOT need to be vented, had a relatively brief stay, and was released in my care this past Saturday.

I have been with her, in her assisted living apartment in isolation, taking care of her along with my sister who is on the ‘outside’ running errands and delivering needs to our door. Mom is on oxygen, 24/7, but is doing quite well. We see the PT tomorrow who will be assessing the upcoming week.

Please Pray…

Prayers are coveted that all will be well enough by Friday, as my daughter, Nika, has her scheduled C-section, and I really need to be available for her. Good thing is, Mom (who has dementia) is not touching her oxygen cannula (nose piece) and is being really cooperative. We just need her to remember to call for a caretaker to help her to the potty (TMI?)! (And, that they will arrive in time so they don’t have a mess to clean up!) (Definitely TMI!) 😉

So, with all that said, this will be another brief party for me (just like last week). Thank you all for understanding! And…

This week… I’m having fun with chocolate and reindeer! Take a look!
