Any word on how Cathi is doing???

Hi, I called her daughter because I could not get an answer on her room phone. Turns out that she has been given a new room. She called and told me how wonderful her new room is. She has a beautiful, much larger room with a view of the water and also a garden. I have talked her head off about Vic and his birds over the years and she was really getting into it when she got so sick again. I was pleasantly surprised to hear her brother thoughtfully supplied her with a bird feeder and a bird book. I feel so stupid. I have no idea why I never thought to send it when she told me she had a garden. She and I were talking about her using the walker, to be on the safe side. The last thing she needs is another broken bone. She is a popular lady and I am so happy that she is usually having company and chatter in the room when I call. Her sister has been going back and forth from the Carolinas and both of her brothers and her daughters and cousins and her friends have been terrific. Thanks so much for asking.
How wonderful it would be to see Angels where there are only clouds. How sad it would be to see clouds where there are Angels.

I am so glad to hear such a nice report about Cathi. It is wonderful that her siblings and cousins have been attentive to her, too. I can picture her room and the birds, etc. How great of her brother to think of the feeder and bird bath. Birds are such a pleasure to us here. I need to call you and tell you about them, Joyce! Bless you for keeping in touch with Cathi. I think of her so often but never imagined she could actually feel like talking on the phone. Hugs MK

Yes, Joyce, we always welcome news about Cathi, as she is so on our minds. I know when my dad was in a nursing home for a time, almost every room had a big picture window, and most had birdfeeders. It was surprising how entertaining they were. I know I have lots of goldfinches and cardinals around this year, and I just love seeing them flit about their business. I'm glad Cathi has lots of visitors. Wish I could be one of them. I know you tell her how much we think of her. I'm glad you've taken on the roll of "board rep" for us.

Love and hugs...

Thanks for the update, Joyce. I don't get over here very often any more, but think of Cathi often. Glad she is in a good place. Sounds like a great facility. We have a residental hospice not far from where we live. It too is situated on a lake so people have a veiw of the water and wildlife. Give her my best, too. Hugs and love, Lauri

Hello Joyce,
I'm thankful for your updates and can picture her watching the birds. I think of her as I watch my birds each day. I send my love to her if you would be able to pass it on. She was one of the very first breast friends I met. We had dinner at the same table in St. Louis in 2000. Hope you are doing well! Sorry I haven't kept up. Will do better. Di

I've been thinking so much about Cathi.  Joyce would it be possible for me to have her new phone number?  She and I used to chat quite often while I was on my drives home from work.
 
Would love to be able to talk to her again, if possible.  If not, please let her know I am thinking of her and have her in my prayers. sad
