CHURCH SIGNS AND TIDBITS-
DO BAD AND REMEMBER
DO GOOD AND FORGET.
HERE'S A FUN FACT- DON'T FEAR FAILURE!  WHILE EXPERIMENTING IN SEARCH OF A RUBBER ALTERNATIVE DURING WORLD WAR II THE GENERAL ELECTRIC COMPANY INVENTED THE STRETCHY, BOUNCING PUTTY THAT KIDS FIND SO FUN.  LIKE SO MANY INVENTIONS, SILLY PUTTY WAS A  FAILED ATTEMPT AT SOMETHING ELSE.
 HE WHO BUYS WHAT HE DOES NOT NEED STEALSFROM HIMSELF.
JAN 3-BIZARRE HOLIDAY:FRUITCAKE TOSS DAY-TODAY IS THE OFFICIAL DAY FOR TOSSING OUT ANY REMAINING FRUITCAKE.
 IF YOU PAUSE TO THINK, YOU'LL HAVE CAUSE TO THANK.
MY IDEA OF HEAVEN IS A GREAT BIG BAKED POTATO ANDSOMEONE TO SHARE IT WITH-BY OPRAH WINFREY
 A LITTLE UPDATE-WE HAD A VERYBLESSED AND MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A VERY BLESSED AND HAPPY NEW YEAR.  IT WAS ALSO QUIET-WE SLEPT THROUGH IT.  LOL!
MYHUSBAND WAS TOLD A FEW WEEKS AGO HE DOES NOT HAVE ALZHEIMER'S.  HE WAS TOLD HE HAS LEWY BODY DISEASE OR LBD.  I GUESS IT HAS SYMPTOMS OF BOTH ALZHEIMER'S AND PARKINSON'S.  THEY SAY IT IS MISDIAGNOSED QUITE A BIT.  ANYWAY HE'S BEING HOOKED UP WITH A TEAM OF GERIATRIC DOCTORS.  HE HAS HIS FIRST APPOINTMENT ON THE 14TH OF THIS MONTH.  WE'LL KNOW MORE AFTER THAT.
 WE ALSO KNOW THAT HE HAS LIVER DISEASE.  HIS DOCTOR MADE AN APPOINTMENT WITH THE GI CLINIC.  WE MET WITH A LIVER DOCTOR. SHE TOLD US HE HAS CIRRHOSIS OF THE LIVER.  THEY WILL BE CHECKING HIM MORE OFTEN.  HE'S ALREADY DOING WHAT THEY WOULD HAVE HIM DO.  HE ALREADY QUIT SMOKING AND DRINKING AND THEY CUT DOWN ON SOME OF HIS MEDICINE.  NOW THEY WILL JUST TEST HIM EVERY 6 MONTHS INSTEAD OF EVERY YEAR.
RIGHT NOW EVERYTHING HERE IS QUIET.  WE'RE TAKING THINGS ONE DAY AT A TIME AND GIVING GOD ALL THE GLORY FOR ALL OUR BLESSINGS.
 I HOPE EVERYONE'S NEW YEAR IS AS BLESSED AND PROSPEROUS AS IT CAN BE.
 I HOPE EVERYONE HAS A BLESSED DAY.  I WILL BE BACK BY MONDAY WITH SOME MORE CHURCH SIGNS AND TIDBITS AND UPDATES ON HOW WE'RE DOING.  I'LL BE PUTTING A FEW PHOTOS ON MY PHOTO PAGE TOO.
HUGS,  CHRIS

I hope things go well with your husbands new diagnosis. Alzheimer\'s is such a terrible disease. My mother had it for the last few years of her life. We only have this one body so we need to take care of it the best we can. We all need to just take it one day at a time and put our worries in God\'s hands, but it\'s hard. Wishing you a blessed 2014.

You certainly have a lot going on at once. The only thing you can do it take it one day at a time, and leave the rest up to God. Wishing you all the best in the new year. HUGS

I pray that you have a wonderful New Year with many blessings, despite the diagnosis. I have a friend who\'s been taking meds for a few years for Parkinson\'s & now they are starting at the beginning, after she gets weaned off the drug, to see what is really wrong. I think she is now going to a doctor from the Mayo Clinic.

As hard as your hubby\'s diagnoses\'s are there is a benefit in knowing what you are dealing with and how to treat it. He is a blessed man to have you by his side. Hope you had a good day today. Hugs, and prayers, Sandy.
