Well,...I'm fine, and not really in need of fuss, but I have been in the hospital for a couple of days. suddenly, in the evening, I had rather intense aching all over chest, neck, upper back, and shoulder. Not extreme pain, but spooky. Soon got a little chills and tremors. Scooted to the emergency ward, just a couple of miles. They soon determined I wasn't having a heart attack. They found quite a bit of excess fluid around the heart, but not enough to do damage or interfere with the heart function. I actually felt perfectly fine by the following noon. They are kicking me out by the end of the day, on medication, to see a cardiologist in one week for another echocardiogram. Worst case, they drill for fluid.
The painful part, we would be in the air right now, on our way to St.Barts for our 30th wedding anniversary. But I already have revised reservations to try again in April. Gotta do other
things right now.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone over there in the West.

A time to give thanks and count our blessings . I do give thanks for all the crew, friends I may never meet, some I hope to meet, soon if possible in our beach hut,to retell stories that we have shared here on board Jane's Rainbow ship. A crew of loving compassionate folk, whose love of music has brought them together to form this wonderful family.

Much love and thanks to you all

And Spaw said better than I could what I have been thinking.

Today marks the beginning of another journey around the sun for me. My son and his girlfriend drove over from Raleigh this morning, took me out to brunch and stayed for a good long visit.

It has been a long time since I had time for a life. A recent job change to a less stressful work culture environment, colleagues who actually do the same work and therefore understand and support one another, much shorter commute and fewer hours. Several years of fretting about my adolescent son, who is turning out to be just fine - caring, responsible, thinking - and the gentling and acceptance of grief and age related transitions in extended family and family of origin offer real hope that this next trip around the sun may allow for more "breathing room" than have the last several.

For most of us here, somewhat older and hopefully a little wiser, the holiday season is a mixed bag - a time to remember, miss and celebrate those we love, living and dead, a time to practice mindful acceptance. And more now than when we were younger, an opportunity to experience deep and conscious thankfulness in a way that we didn't have the life experience to do when we were younger.

I could not ask for better traveling companions. I am grateful to all.

Janie

I'd say something but I cannot possibly say it any better. I've been a bit lax in posting here lately but I have kept up with the voyage and the crew. 3D has been pretty full and a bit trying at times lately but all is well here too.

There is much good news aboard ship and just the camaraderie of reading gives much warmth when we are going through a bit of roughness and loss on the 'Cat. If I am less vocal of late it comes from the fact that I often have no words that could be better than those from all of you...........Thank you all for being here.

Dear Everyone, I felt an urgent desire to express my gratitude for your Loyalty, Love, Compassion, Wisdom, Humour, Selflessness & the dozens of other positive qualities you regularly display. The fact that so much good has been done, so much comfort apportioned, so many smiles generated, so many tears gently wiped away, bares testament to who you are & what you stand for. Your candour is, at one & the same time, breathtaking & profoundly moving. There is a unique serendipity in losing Jane & finding all of You.
          On 'The Rainbow', there is a door that remains permanently open (well above the water-line, I hasten to add!) through which all may enter. There is a welcome waiting I've rarely experienced in 'real life'. Good People thinking Good Thoughts, saying Good Words & doing Good Deeds, often in the most trying of personal circumstances.
          It's only four days until Thanksgiving. I give thanks for each & every one of you. I give thanks for what we've created. I give thanks to Max for having the vision to create Mudcat. A universal, all-embracing Thank You.
                                                       With Love,
                                                                      Nigel & Ann

Ok all, it is 11.30pm on Thursday. Mum is tucked up in bed with a lovely young lady carer holding her hand while she sleeps. Billy and I are cosy in bed with glass of wine and watching TV.

What a week, as BB said to me just now. we sat up all night again on Tuesday, but last night our daughter sat with mum and I must admit I don't remember anything after my head hit the pillow.

I have arranged pretty much 24 hour care, found a physiotherapist who came today and got mum standing and is phoning the Community Matron to arrange Occupational Therapy to come and assess mum and arrange any equipment we may need.

This afternoon my cousin Michael and his wife who live in Salisbury arrived out of the blue to see mum, they sat and chatted and she loved to see them. Then BB and I had supper with them and laughed and reminisced , it was really lovely.

Mum is very poorly, bad chest infection and very sleepy but safe and contented. She enjoyed Michael reading the memory book to her ( she was there when he was born in 1943 and he has always been like a big brother to me)We are blessed with a wonderful close family.

Thank you for your lovely words , this crew is a wonderful family too!

much love
Wendy

What is said about counting your chickens?? tempting fate saying I had some outings planned!

Mum fell getting out of bed yesterday, about 7.30. Our Dr eventually arrived at 4 in the afternoon, diagnosed a broken wrist and told me to take mum in the car to the local A and E. We pointed out she couldn't stand so the GP said she would phone for an ambulance, she was in the house for 4 minutes!!

The paramedic noticed at once mum had a fracture of the pelvis, the hospital at Colchester were wonderful. The consultant decided that mum would be best at home in familiar seroundings so we came home in a private ambulance at 2 in the morning.The care was amazing unlike the GP !!!

So I am trying to arrange 24 hour care at home, haven't slept for about 31 hours but mum is tucked up in bed with her arm in a cast and, more importantly, happy to be home.

love to all

Thanks for the hugs, friends. I, and I know Linn, will appreciate them.

We had such a good session yesterday, with musicians from near and far showing up. One thing I know for a fact continues on are the connections Tom made happen. Friends we wouldn't know without him, things that happened because he was here. All of these things that occurred because of Tom make his life remarkable. He virtually built a community here.

He lost his voice a few years ago, but when I think of him now, I can always call up that voice. I can see the impish glint in his eyes. I know Linn has many good friends, and she'll be OK. The love the two of them shared isn't the type that makes a person need it.

No one lives forever. Tom had a good life, and he certainly made many lives better. Maybe that's how we achieve immortality in this world.

Nigel and Pete,

The advantage of living by the sea, it is always here, and a warm welcome chez Wendy and Billy also, we have been known to have hot soup and bangers and mash at the beach hut in the winter, great after a brisk walk wearing many layers!! Sometimes is the best time as the summer trippers are gone and a deserted beach and winter sky can be spectacular. Short notice is often the best way to arrange a day out in this house so watch the weather forcast and pm me at any time! We have a few outings to look forward too, my son is 40 next week so we are off to a hotel on the 30th to celebrate. He has Giles Brandreth at the theatre on the 6th December so we are going for a jolly evening. Best of all I am going to the carol concert in aid of Children and the Arts in Sloane Square on the 9th with some wonderful readings by Brian Blessed and Penelope Wilton and others.

I too dislike these dark evenings, feel a bit trapped indoors if I am honest. Bless mum, she is deteriorating quite quickly now, much more confused and not as happy in herself. Last week she shouted at me and threw something at me . I know that it is totally the dementia and not my lovely mum but I had to take myself upstairs and have a good cry.However I read the letters that she wrote to my father during the war and reminded myself of the vibrant young woman she was then. I have finished her memory book it covers her life from 1923 when she was born until this autumn when she had her 90th birthday, full of memories from her letters, memories from my cousins, and many many photographs. The last page has a photo of Scarlet ( Bunny) Reuben and Prudence, my grandchildren with the message saying" nanny we love you this is your book of memories with love from all of us"

Mum spends many hours reading the book, she takes it everywhere, last week she took it to the day centre and the manager read it to all the people there, it stimulated memories and they had an animated morning remembering where they were when The Crystal Palace burnt down, what they did during the war, the fancy dress party when the Queen was crowned in 1953 and lots more!

I really enjoyed putting the book together and I am going to send a copy to all my cousins for Christmas, it is our story too.

sending love to all the crew
coffee pot is on help yourself

Allison, so good to hear from you. A really uplifting post that brings a ray of sunshine to some rather gloomy days.

Wendy, our day by the sea looks increasingly destined for 2014. We're determined to make it to Frinton (Many happy childhood memories of Frinton, Clacton & Walton-on-the Naze). Family commitments at present are complex & very fluid, meaning that putting something in the diary that's actually going to stay PUT is next to impossible!

Echoing Ranger1's post...Julia L & her Mum...sending Love & Healing Thoughts.

Gnu, the imagery invoked by your earlier post lingers in my mind. Your writing draws me in. I could be sitting in a chair opposite you, smelling & tasting the food (scoff, a word I haven't heard used for many a long year).

May the shorter days & longer nights pass quickly. I yearn for the Spring,

Janie, according to the comment of the person who posted that file, the musicians were Doc Watson, Earl Scruggs, and Ricky Skaggs. My favorite rendition was by Merritt Herring, but the tape he gave me burned.

{{{Hugs}}}} maeve, Tami, Jeri, Linn and all who knew Tom firsthand and loved him.

Maeve, that is a particularly nice recording of "Who Will Sing for Me." I especially liked the instruments and the instrumental arrangements. Do you know who the band was?

Thoughts flying to Julie L. and her mom.

Will post on Tom's obit thread when I've figures out what to write.

Keep sailing, Rainbow, through waters whether peaceful or troubled.

(((Tami))) Losing Tom has hit me hard.

Thanks for letting us know about Julia's mother. I'll call Julia in the morning.

Stopping in for hugs. And to ask for some good thoughts for Julia L, her mother had a massive stroke on Tuesday.
