I've been away from Mudcat for several days. My 15-year-old grandson who lives with his mother in California has been here with my son's (his father's) family for almost two weeks. I have spent a lot of time with them.

Janie, I hope the hobbling is going very well.

Wendy, I'm sorry about your mother. My hugs are on their way, though belatedly.

So, gnu, how are you doing? Well, I hope!

Nigel, I'm sorry about your health problems. I hope treatments go well.

Maeve, same goes for your Truelove.

Love to you all!

I had my cataracts removed some years back. I was due to have them done & when I went for my next checkup (6 months after the first) my left eye was so bad I couldn't read the top letter in the chart! tho as I was using both eyes, I wasn't aware of it. Not long after I had both eyes done 2 weeks apart & could use both eyes, tho I use glasses for close work.

Hmmm... if I can see really good after these surgeries, will I start ogling the fairer sex again? That could be a problem. Not the ogling part but the stomping the primitive urges part. Nah... no problems. A lesson learned eh?

I'm going to be 'out of action' for most of January...a combination of radical med. changes (already begun & causing adjustment problems). Surgery (only a hernia repair) & an extensive round of tests for my hearing & heart. In the words of my maternal Grandmother: "I don't have the energy to blow the top off a rice pudding!" I have only to read the posts above to know that Jane's Rainbow is, as always, in good hands, so I have no reservations about taking some 'shore leave' for a month or so.

Spectacular and thrilling fireworks display, Sandra. Hope you don't mind that I shared it on Facebook.

I will soon be headed to bed. Haven't been awake to see in the New Year in a long, long time.

Having friends over tomorrow for an early New Year's supper. I'm fixing my family's traditional meal of corned beef, cabbage and cornbread. Guests are bringing black-eyed peas and collard greens in keeping with the more common southern US tradition. Didn't have time to go to the bank to get a shiny, new dime to cook with the cabbage.

Took a few very awkward, shuffling steps with a cane in PT today. Bodes well for the New Year. May not seem much to crow about, but I am very excited.

So very glad to be part of this crew and to be sailing into another year in such company.

Sharing a happy with the crew: got a package from Norway from my youngest host brother. Opened it up to find a flash drive of almost 500 photos and videos, some of him when he was small, some of his significant other when she was small, and the bulk of them are of his son, from sonogram to this Christmas. Trym will be 2 in March. Spent a large chunk of the afternoon looking at happy pics.

as I live in the suburb where zillions of Sydneysiders & folks from other places congregate to celebrate NYE (& go drinking every weekend), I tend to stay home cos getting back is not easy. Also the crowde everywhere are gi-normous which makes the getting back even harder.

I just might wander out 8.30ish to see if I can get near the closest of the vantage points for the world famous fireworks (live link), but maybe not as I've seen the top of the highest fireworks before over the buildings around my part of the harbour.

I'll probably listen to a few CDs, continue with my backlog of blog articles & maybe get on with a bit of sewing.

The worst of the bad weather is way to the North of where we live, so other than plenty of 'normal rain' & some gusty wind, we're safe & dry. A tributary of The Thames flows behind our house, some four hundred yards away, I would guess, but as a tributary, it benefits from the protection of The Thames Barrier, so we have to put our trust in the engineering skills of others.

Maeve, your quotation above: "...a prerequisite to empathy is simply paying attention to the person in pain." is a perfect fit for our thread. I think it encapsulates what we do best. I'm also reminded of some words written by our sorely missed Friend, Pat Patterson. He wrote of his amazement at how real our virtual relationships become. Over the past four years, we have created a 'vessel' that can sail wherever she is needed; that can weather the worst of Life's storms. Onwards we voyage,

Thanks Janie,

"Acceptance of whatever the reality of the moment is", will of course mostly be my problem. My mother's mind is OK, whereas mine is ... "unusual". Or from a different perspective: During therapy she's had to accept people doing tasks that she used to do herself, but to me it still feels like I'm invading, even if I'm doing it for her. But I'll try accepting things as they are now.

Well, it was balmy on Christmas (about 10C, 13C Xmas Eve!). Green... second green Xmas in a row! I've seen 39 of them here and only one was green before these last two years. I recall one Xmas that we were snowed in for three days.

Of course, smugness get's karma'd. The Kee-Kee birds arrived from their northern nesting grounds after the snow yesterday and brought minus 21WC (Wind Chill) with them. I just hope last year's snow doesn't repeat. We had one stom in early December but NO snow on the ground until January 28. By mid March, we had a whole winter of snow on the ground. On my street, on February 19, two cars could not get by each other. Got my truck stuck trying to let a car pass and if I hadn't had 4X4, I would have had to shovel out me truck.

Still, I look at the floods in England and Colorado and Central/South America, the tornados in Texas where people have been killed... I welcome this cold and snow. I look at the wars and the migrations. I read the hardships of life in this thread. And, I welcome this cold and snow - it's a minor inconvenience.

Bless all. I hope the new year brings us all to a better place.

J-boy could use some of the Rainbow's mojo. His dad had to go in for emergency surgery this AM due to an infection in the wound from his surgery from just before Thanksgiving. Steve had a hip replacement three years ago that was causing cobalt poisoning, and it was replaced/repaired just before Thanksgiving. He was in a rehab hospital until about a week ago, went in for a doctor's appointment yesterday AM and they scheduled surgery for this AM.

For Wendy, Lisa, Nigel & Ann, Janie, gnu, Pete, Mysha, ChanteyLass, Tami, Dean, Donuel, Sandra... all those named and unnamed friends who have sailed with us for a moment or for years- Love and attentive listening, companionable silence and good food, great sorrow and great joy have been ours together.

Thank you all for demonstrating empathy by paying attention to people in pain. Thank you for allowing your joy and pain to deepen your well of compassion. Thank you for offering sweet water from that well to every soul who waves as we sail, comes on board or paddles alongside, or swims a few strokes with us.

morning,

Poor mum is very unwell. The Community Matron visited yesterday and has decided that it is time for the end of life team to come and support me.

Wont ask for thoughts etc as I know how wonderful you all are and that all I have to do is come on board for hugs.

fondest love

Wendy xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
