A hard Christmas This Year

My Husbands mom was on her way with his 10 year old sister to Fargo ND on a train Thursday night Friday morning and had a stroke. She had a bleed in her brain and had surgery Saturday the 24th. One of Steve's brothers flew into Spokane and him and Steve left Spokane at 11pm the 24th. and started the long drive to Fargo. the last update I had was at 11:15 the 25th that they had good roads and they were 530 miles out. Joan's surgery went good but they are not going to take the ventilator tomorrow sometime. The kids and I had a very different Christmas without Steve. but we are making the best of a bad event. we are saving the turkey for when Steve gets back and made home make pizza. Please keep us in your prayers. Steve will be bringing his sister back to go to school and will will have a small one in our house again.
Oh but did find some time to make Deanna my oldest her cup. I am glad that her and the grand kids are here for the weekend.


  1. So sorry to hear about your hubby's mother. His little sister must have been so scared. I love the photo of the little one making pizza. I'd say you are making the best of a bad situation. I hope all will be better soon.


  2. Prayers for your family on this Christmas! Hope everything works out!

  3. I can't imagine being 10 and alone with my mom on a train when she has a stroke. She must have been so scared. I was the one that heard my mother "call" after she suffered from a stroke and I was so scared at 48 years old.

    My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I hope that your mother-in-law recovers fully, and by this time next year you are all celebrating and giving thanks for all your blessings.
