Happy Valentine's Day!!!..

My Sweet and Thoughtful Friends. Coming here and reading your words of encouragement has been the best medicine for me. After all the worry we had the decision was taken from us by the surgeon. He said my Father-in-law would never survive the surgery and that he would not operate on him now or ever. So we just keep the status quo and continue on our path. Today on the way home from the hospital he did not remember coming to the hospital or the angiogram he had on Thursday. I know that the rest of the hospital stay will slip from his memory in the coming week and that will be that. I can't thank you all enough for taking the time to leave me such lovely messages of support. I probably should not post when I am so upset next time:)

On a brighter note, I contacted all my OWOH winners and I want to share the Valentine's card I made for my husband and the Valentine's gift he gave to me.

I have been wanting to use this RPPC photo for so long and finally came up with a use for it:)

This is the BEAUTIFUL bouquet of flowers he had sent to the house on Friday. It has Calli lilies and two different types of orchids and roses and roses and roses:) It is the most beautiful arrangement and smells heavenly.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend and getting lots of Arting done:) Love, Jamie

What an ADORABLE card! I couldn't help but giggle when I read it! And what beautiful flowers! Just gorgeous!

I know what a tough time you are going through with your father-in-law. We are going through much of the same situation with my Grandmother. She is 92 years old. It is so difficult to see someone who was once so strong take a downturn due to dementia and age-related illnesses. All of her care is being done by my sweet parents, and they are exhausted. As much as they love her, and would do anything for her, the constant caretaking takes its toll. Know that I will be thinking of you and praying for your strength and your father-in-law's health.

And that's one of the worst things about dementia...they don't remember but you do and sometimes it's simply overwhelming. They don't remember the rude things they said or nasty names they called you but you do. Try and forget though, try not to remember or it will drive you round the bend.
Ask me how I know -smile-.
Those flowers are BEEEYOUUUTIFULLL! Your man is a keeper!
Happy V-Day.
