My report is that the storm came, has blown away and now a rainbow has taken its place! There may still be some pain but prayers take that away. Praise God for all his blessings in the midst of sorrow!
Update from Thursday, June 24 to now
We did manage to get Jenny (Kathy’s identical twin) to fly out for a few days as I really feel that they needed each other right now and am looking forward to seeing her. Jenny lives in Michigan. My sister and dad are coming down tomorrow for a visit and with the exception of my other sister who lives in Canada, this will be the first time we’ve been together for a long time.
We had a blast on Thursday! Kathy wasn’t up to going anywhere for lunch, much less moving around very much at all. My sister and Dad came in from Placerville and we had lunch at Kathy’s house. Jenny was so good with her sister, she took care of her and did most of the cleaning for the visit. My job was to make a nice big salad, get some shrimp (didn’t realize it was frozen and didn’t thaw out in time for lunch, DUH!) and went to Salazar’s and picked up a small platter of mini burritos, quesadillas, etc. I made some ice tea and Jenny made lemonade and we had such a good time visiting. An (Kathy’s hubby) wasn’t able to be there as he had to work. Later, An’s parents came over and took little Sam to their house so he could play with his cousins.
You should’ve seen Jenny and Kathy together, they are in contact constantly, it seems, and trying to get a word in edgewise is almost impossible! So, we sat back and watched the show. Even Doug (my hubby) was quiet, which just isn’t normal for him! LOL!! We took a lot of pictures and then took turns looking at pictures from everyone’s camera cards on the computer! Here are some pictures:
