Friday, November 10, 2023, MN

Last night was a  very restless night for sleep.  My mind just wouldn’t relax and rest.  It’s a good thing that I have nothing going on today, so I can get a nap.  One thing I kept thinking of was Jill’s dad.  I was able to talk with her yesterday when I was there for my cleaning job.  He got back home on Wednesday but started to bleed and they couldn’t stop it, so he had to go back to the hospital.  She said that his nose is badly broken and that his entire face is black & purple, all of the way down his neck and much of the bleeding is inside his nose.  In addition to that, his skin bruises terribly with just a slight bump due to the medications that he takes and the chemotherapy for his bone cancer.  I just couldn’t get the images of his hurt face out of my mind - I sure hope his body can fight this horrible attack.

Good news this week is that my niece, Ali’s husband James has returned home from ten months of duty in Africa with the National Guard.  I was able to watch the troops get off the plane at the airport and then there was a video of him going to Jax’s school to surprise him.  That sure brought tears to my eyes. I’m so happy that they are reunited and can get back to normal family living.
