Happy July 4th

Hello friends.
Hope everyone is enjoying their
holiday weekend.

This is not the post I wanted to do for my
patriotic month.
This pic was from a few years ago.

Fortunately Bob's gout went away on Thursday,
however on Friday afternoon
I drove him to the ER thinking he
was dehydrated with the flu
as he had not eaten anything since Wednesday night.
The short story is he had a mild stroke.
He in in ICU now for how long we do not know.
He can talk and had not lost any feeling,
so this is a good thing.
The neurologist is giving him
saline solution and meds to hopefully
break up the blood in his brain...which is quite a bit.
Good thing also is the echocardiogram
came back that this did not affect his heart.

I have been practically living at the hospital right now.
When I get home I try to go to bed,
but everyone wants updates, so I am spending 
more time on the phone lately with 
calls and texts.
There are so many folks that know Bob and I,
and once the word got out....well
its non stop. No fault of theirs.
Everyone is worried nd concerned.
 I have been taking the calls from Bob's
phone and mine as he needs his rest.

Poor Tundra has been left by himself 
all day now.
He is not use to this.
Every  morning I let him out of his crate
and he runs around the house looking for Bob.

Well I need to go to bed,
but I just wanted to let everyone know
I am going to take some time away from 
blogging for a bit to take care of Bob,
and run the stores now.
I took time off work until Bob gets better.

My routine these past days are go to the stores
early in the morning and do the paperwork
and take in the deposits, then I take
Bob's dad with me to the hospital all day,
then I take Bob's dad home, go pick up
Tundra and go back to the stores to make
sure all is well and do inventory at 
the gift shop.
Of course all my Fall and Halloween items
are now arriving and I have to make sure 
nothing is broke and everything was shipped.

When it rains, it pours.
I have stopped working on crafts,
so I am afraid I may not get the rest done in
time now before I set up the store for Halloween.
It is what it is.
Bob is more important right now.

Well as I said before, I am going to try and go to bed now.

Thanks for understanding and know
I will get back to blogging when I can.

Happy July 4th Blessings To All Of YOU!



  1. Prayers for healing for Bob and peace for Tundra

  2. Thoughts and prayers for Bob and you.

  3. Sending hugs and prayers to you, Bob, and yes, Tundra, too.

  4. So sorry for all your troubles. Sending love and prayers your way for quick recovery for Bob. I hope someone will offer some of their time to help even if it's just taking Tundra for a walk.
    Hugs, Julia

  5. You & Bob will be in my thoughts and prayers ...Take Care

  6. So very sorry to read of this Janice, but grateful things are not as bad as they could have been. Sending healing prayers and thoughts...for you, Bob, and, of course, Tundra. Hugs ~Robin~

  7. Oh no! I will keep Bob and you in my prayers. I certainly can relate when emergencies happen and taking care of family and yourself is #1. I hope he gets home soon and will be back to his old self quickly. Hugs from Ohio Janice.

  8. Oh Janice, I'm so sorry to hear this. You two have had such a hard year already and now this. I'm glad the speech and such are still OK -- that's a huge good sign. But it's still so frightening and of course challenging mastering all the paperwork, transportation and just keeping on while he's in the hospital. I wish I lived closer to you to help out. Please take great care of you during this time and his recovery. I suspect the store will be fine for a bit. Sending love and healing wishes.

  9. Oh my Janice, I'm sorry to read this...please know you'll both be in my prayers. I know there's so much stress right now trying to take it all in, plus run the store. Take some time to keep yourself healthy...a cup of herbal tea, reading a few pages of a favorite book, even a little cat nap...will be thinking of you, Mary

  10. Janice ,so sorry about Bob, prayers he has complete healing and you both take care of yourselves. If you need anything please call me. Both of you take it slow and I am praying things will be as they should. Hugs to you both

  11. I am so very sorry to read this post and hear what has been going on. I will keep you both in my prayers and hope that everyday brings better news. Take care of yourself and your husband. Blog again when you can.
