Marching towards Christmas…..

Hello everyone. I have not written lately, because life is just going on day by day.  David has returned to work on a modified schedule. For the last week and a half he has been going in after lunch for the afternoon.  That seems to be working for him.  I would imagine that as he feels stronger, he will plan to work longer days until he is at his normal schedule.

He is still coughing, and we’re not exactly sure why.  It could be that his as his lungs mend and as he does more, this is a natural side effect of that healing.  It could be something more, but he is not FEELING bad at all.  The cough does not hurt, so we are assuming it is all part of the healing process.

That’s it!  Life is moving forward and Christmas is fast approaching.  Exciting!  We were able to get our Christmas tree last Saturday….thanks to Elisabeth who was the official tree cutter this year.  Unfortunately, only David, Liz, John and I were able to be there, but we still were able to muster some fun, even without Charlie and Angela.


Best wishes to you all in your Christmas preparations!   Thank you for your prayers and words of encouragement.

Love, Connie
