Say a prayer tonight for us that the ultra sound that they are doing tomorrow is still the same and that the liver hasn't got worse. I know that the blood work shows that a few more things are out of sink. 
I know that we have been fortunate for so very long since he first got sick. They changed to a new nurse practitioner at the nursing home from the one that I liked 
We won't know the results until we go back down the following week to see the doctor. I just hope  the weather holds. I know I have to be at the nursing home beore 7 to go with him. 
I thought I would show you the jewelry box that my 15 year old grandson made. It is made out of maple and cherry. I thought he did a beautiful job. He will sell it if you need a Christmas present for some one. His mom made two small baskets for a charity auction and they were surprised at what they sold for. One was 45.00 and the other 55.00. All total they made about $3000.00 for the charity.The items sold were all made by the woodworkers guild members. 
My craft shows are over and now I can just take care of my etsy shop. My chicken pattern has sold as quick as I get them done. The weekend was busy.My middle grandson's basketball team lucked out and won by 1 point. My youngest grandson got 3rd in the space derby at cub scouts. 
A few of them including my youngest grandson is ringing the bell at the mall next weekend for the Salvation Army.He did it last year. It is teaching them how to volunteer for their community service badge. 
Well I better close for tonight as I have to be up early in the morning. Take care.

Shirley- I am praying for your hubby and hope his tests come out okay. That is always so worrisome. It has been a long, hard road for you, I know.

That box is unbelievable! He did a terrific job on it. Amazing work-especially for his age.

I love that you are so proud of your grandchildren. xo Diana

Drive carefully, Shirley! I will be thinking of you and your husband and hoping for good results on the test. And I hope the new nurse practitioner turns out to be a good resource.
Your grandson did a beautiful job on that box. The striped bow is exquisite. I do love things made of wood.

I'm guessing you will be home now, but wanted you to know that I'm praying that the results are good. Waiting a week feels like an eternity and my heart goes out to you both.

What a wonderful piece your grandson made. He has a career opening there - such talent in one so young is amazing. If I lived on your side of thee Atlantic, I would love to have bought it.

Bless you all. Hoping that you have peace in your hearts and minds next week so that you can enjoy Christmas.
