I did call the neurosurgeon's office when my neck pain did not go away after two weeks. I left a message with his assistant explaining what happened and asked if I should go back to PT and if so can he send an order over for me to begin? Since I received an order to begin PT, I guess he feels this is the correct thing for me to do.
I did ask Bridget if something is wrong with me, maybe to do with my neck surgery? She said no, she did not think so. I have suffered a sprain.
I won this adorable T-shirt from the giveaway that RJ and Mary had on their blog STITCHING FRIENDS FOREVER.
Isn't it cute?! I just love it! Thank you so much Peggy for this T-shirt from your wonderful LNS, Crafty Framer and Cross Stitch Store, in Largo, Florida.
Here is the pretty card Mary made me. She also sent these sweet pink coasters as a little extra.
I have an update for you on our friend Scott. He has had a double craniotomy to remove the two brain tumors. A postoperative MRI has revealed that 0.1% of cancer remains in his brain. Radiation is needed along with chemo to rid him of this. This is very good news!
Scott is now at a rehabilitation hospital. He is doing physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy. Please pray for him and his family. There is still a long road ahead. Thank you!
With war threatening to spread from Europe to England, the sleepy village of Crowmarsh Priors settles into a new sort of normal: Evacuees from London are billeted in local homes. Nightly air raids become grimly mundane. The tightening vice of rationing curtails every comfort. Men leave to fight and die. And five women forge an unlikely bond of friendship that will change their lives forever.
Alice Osbourne, the stolid daughter of the late vicar, is reeling from the news that Richard Fairfax broke their engagement to marry Evangeline Fontaine, an American girl from the Deep South. Evangeline’s arrival causes a stir in the village—but not the chaos that would ensue if they knew her motives for being there. Scrappy Elsie Pigeon is among the poor of London who see the evacuations as a chance to escape a life of destitution. Another new arrival is Tanni Zayman, a young Jewish girl who fled the horrors of Europe and now waits with her newborn son, certain that the rest of her family is safe and bound to show up any day. And then there’s Frances Falconleigh, a madcap, fearless debutante whose father is determined to keep her in the countryside and out of the papers.
As the war and its relentless hardships intensify around them, the same struggles that threaten to rip apart their lives also bring the five closer together. They draw strength from one another to defeat formidable enemies—hunger, falling bombs, the looming threat of a Nazi invasion, and a traitor in their midst—and find remarkable strength within themselves to help their friends. Theirs is a war-forged loyalty that will outlast the fiercest battle and endure years and distance.
When four of the women return to Crowmarsh Priors for a VE Day celebration fifty years later, television cameras focus on the heartwarming story of these old women as war brides of a bygone age, but miss the more newsworthy angle. The women’s mission is not to commemorate or remember—they’ve returned to settle a score and avenge one of their own
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful day my friends!
Likewise, I say to you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents. Luke 15:10
