Hello there.  I haven't been able to do much blogging lately.  I hope that I am not missing any important posts.  I will be back again more often, I hope soon.
My mom isn't doing well.  My brother left for the time being, thank goodness.  He sure stirred up things.  Mom was in the hospital all last week.  She had two blood transfusions and was treated for pneumonia.   She is home now.  (Forgive me if I have already written about this)  But she is weak, shaky and still running a temp. I went back to take her to the doctor for a post visit after being released.  He thinks her pneumonia  is better.  The fever may be related to her acute leukemia .  Now waiting to hear from her oncologist.  She is home alone but she has home health care and a physical therapist coming in for a short time.  Neighbors are also checking.  So hoping that someone will suggest that she needs more care.
Last week I went to the doll auction here.  It was a three day event.  I did find some treasures on the last day.  The other two days were online auctions.  I only sat through a bit on the second day but went to the one that's called a treasure hunt.  It's  not my favorite.  But the talk there was that there were many new faces and the prices were high.  There were tons of Shirley Temple dolls and tons of the small Madame Alexanders.  Those were still in the boxes unopened.  I believe it was an estate of two big collectors.  I did get 4 Shirleys.  I sold three already to ladies in my FB doll group.  I am keeping the last one for my daughter since it is a Heidi Shirley.  There was some nasty dust there that bothered a lot of people.  Must be from the storage.
Hubby and I took the week-end for ourselves.  We bought a new recliner did a lot of dining out.  Rode to the lake where our cottage was and went to a movie.  We saw Train Wreck.  It was a good movie.  I think the trailers make it seem like a different movie than what it was.
So that's it for now.  My life is not so interesting right now, but maybe that's a good thing.

I'll sure keep your mother in my prayers. Love hearing about the doll auctions. I've never been to one but I'm sure I would get in all kinds of trouble. I love dolls...as you well know! Have a good week sweet friend. Hugs, Diane

HI Debby, Glad you and your hubby had some time for being together. Glad your mom is home with help. I am thinking like you...if she can't be alone and isn't well ..she may need to go to a care facility. I will keep you all in my prayers. Bless you, xoxo,Susie

Hi Debby, So sorry to hear about your Mom! It is really hard to watch our parents age and need more and more care. I am sorry you have to go through that.
Glad you took a weekend for yourself and also that you got to go to the doll auction. I don't think I have seen a Heidi Shirley Temple...bet it is cute. xo Diana

Hi Debby, I'm so glad you took the weekend for yourself and hubby. You really deserve it.
Sorry about your Mom's condition. This must be so stressful. I'm glad she has some home care and the neighbours checking up on her.

Glad you found some dolls and sold some already

I am so glad you and your husband were able to have some time together to recharge. And glad you got some time for yourself at the doll auction, too. I hope for the best with your mother. Hopefully home health or someone will convince her to seek a better living option for her health. Thinking of you often.

So sorry that your mom is not doing well Debby. I hope your weekend "off" was a help to you.

It was good to hear that mom is getting some home care and other help. This gives you a welcome break. I think it's great that you and hubby were able to spend some quality fun time together. That cottage sounds just wonderful. You have a great day, hugs, Edna B.

Hi Debby :)

I'll say a prayer that your mom gets better and also listens to you about getting more care.

Aside from that it sounds like you had a good time at the auction and with you hubby. I'm glad because you deserve it :)
