My poor mom!

Her foot is bad again in spite of all the high powered antibiotics. Because it is her hammertoe that is causing the problem, we are pretty sure she is going to have to see a foot specialist and get some surgery on it. Our friend, who is a physical therapist, looked at it yesterday and he explained what is happening and he said it is going to continue to do that until part of the toe is removed. I hate for her to have to do that, but she sees a foot doctor every couple of months to get her nails cut. She doesn't particularly like him, but he is the only one who comes to the local hospital.

It's been a long time since I failed to send Christmas cards, but it is looking more and more like this may be the year. I simply cannot get in the mood to do it and I usually enjoy doing it every year. I sure do enjoy hearing from others at Christmas time. I think most of the people on my Christmas list know that I just lost my dad, so they will probably understand.

Woo Hoo! My brother will be back tonight. I have missed him this week.

The thought of having surgery on a toe sure sounds painful.

With your brother getting back it's time for you to take a vacation.

Linda, plans are in the works for me to go visit my friends in Utah after Christmas...maybe February. I'm looking forward to a little R & R myself, but it will depend on Mom and her foot.
