nice weekend surprise.

Donna and i were relaxing on this gorgeous Saturday afternoon when Rigg’s went to red alert at the porch door.Out on the porch was a flower delivery guy for Donna.What a great surprise. Our good friends Paul and Helen Tempesta from Florida had sent Donna some beautiful  fresh cut flowers, They are so thoughtful we are certainly lucky to have friends like that. I can only hope Donna recovers enough to make another visit to their home.

Update,Good News for a change.

Donna just found out that she is dong so well, they will be sending her home tomorrow some time.I will be so glad to have my bride home again.When I saw her on that breathing machine the first day, I honestly was worried that she wouldn’t make it. Now she looks great again. Our prayers were certainly answered. That’s about it for now. Sam & Donna….

Not so good news and update.

This morning (Friday) Donna had to be taken to the hospital again, She had a couple of bad days breathing wise and this morning she could hardly breath,so we got an ambulance and she went back to St Josephs. Once thy got her situated, they put her on a machine to assist her breathing, not a respirator that breaths for you,and started IV’s, they are going to check her blood counts and see if she needs infusions, needless to say I stayed with her a couple hours  and then when she wanted to sleep I went home to wait until they got her to a room, won’t know much more until morning. I hope they can get her feeling better fast. Send prayers. Sam…
