Iacta alea est



   Iacta alea est posted on Faith  Medically, all Mom's doctors tell her she's doing well especially in light of what has transpired since last August. But she maintains a spirit of self-defeatism insisting there hasn't been improvement. May I ask you prayer warriors to pray the Holy Spirit to touch Mom's spirit and (to use the Biblical word ) "quicken" it?

   MeiDei  Continuing on .. with prayer for you too - as you know, being a caretaker isn't a job for the weak. May your mom wake up one day soon with an attitude of gratitude; find a way to make her laugh, works at our house.

   Iacta alea est posted on Faith  I would just like to say that many of us are facing or going thru difficult times regarding the health of a loved one or loved ones. But (at least for me ) it is a blessed and joy giving thing that we come together here and ask for, or offer up, or receive prayers for our loved ones. Speaking only for myself, I am genuinely uplifted by all of this. It is true nourishment. And I again declare my undying gratitude to all of you, and to our Lord. You all are the living embodiment of the scripture (from James I believe ) that "the prayers of a righteous man availeth much." We have been given each other as gifts from our God, and I am humbled by the riches that are all of you.

   BirdsNest  At the tracks Saturday many people stopped by and asked after Hagar. All said they would add him to their prayer list and many said they had prayed for him every day. One lovely gentleman and his daughter-in-law held my hands and prayed for Hagar. One gentleman told me to offer it up to God. Amazing people we have come to know.

   Iacta alea est posted on Faith  Mom had surgery to put a stent somewhere in the remaining portion of her aorta. The operation went well, and possibly she could return home this weekend. Deep thanks for all your prayers.

   Balogreene  You know, 65 years after getting hers, mom's wouldn't do that. 10 years after getting mine, they would.

Went to a new dentist Monday, who said my dentures were the worst he's seen in years. I will get new dentures in the next 6 weeks! Then they won't blow out: )

   StormCnter  Just after the War, my grandmother famously leaned over the side of a tour boat in Florida and lost her top plate. She spent the rest of her trip shielding her mouth with a hand so no one would notice.

   Balogreene  You know, I was in my 20's before I knew mom wore dentures, she even slept in them, never used adhesive, loved corn on the cob. But, when I think back, they were yellow (as befitting coffee and age ), and maybe a little large. She had them 50 years before she had to have them replaced (got them in 1950 ). My grandmother the same, she died wearing the same dentures she'd gotten 50 years before (same dentist as mom ). Now, they charge you $3k to $4k, and tell you maybe they'll last 10 years. I want what mom and grandma had! Actually, I want dad's perfect teeth, but since I'm talking about my second pair of dentures, that is probably unlikely.

   StormCnter  The same grandmother who lost her upper plate into a Florida canal bought her second set of dentures from a traveling dentist who visited the remote Texas ranches in the mid 40s. He promised her a good set of dentures for $400, which was a significant hunk of money in those days. She needed to replace her old set, so she gave him the money much to the ridicule and hilarity of her family. Three weeks later, he returned, fitted her new dentures and she was happy with them to the end of her life 35 years later.

   Linder  Mother, who will be 102 in 2 months will soon be fitted for new top dentures. They were somehow broken at the nursing home. Is now on a soft diet and to supplement calories I take her soft ice cream most every day. I don't go to the Dairy Sweet so had no idea of the cost...small sundae is $3.96....so being conservative I now get just the bowl of ice cream for $1.14 and bought caramel topping to add myself. Lined a small cooler with ice packs and it arrives at her room without any melt. And every day she says it is the best thing she has ever tasted.

   Balogreene  Linder, my mormor (mother's mother ) was in hospital in the DC suburbs on 9/11. They packed up everyone they could and took them to Nursing Homes in preparation for all the people who did not survive. She was convinced we put her there to die, and didn't eat. They put the tray out of her reach and didn't feed her, and she just wanted to die anyway. Nightly, I took her Starbucks frappucinos and McDonald's shakes. She loved them. I kinda think that was all she ate in the month she lived. She died 10/11/01, at not quite 95. But, she loved ice cream, shakes and coffee!

   Balogreene  The thing that scares me about Mormor, one of my friends at work, her father died at the same Nursing Home a year or two before Mormor. Another friend at work, her mother was also moved there on 9/11. She lasted a month longer than my Mormor.
