Sunday 12/6 Church at St. Petri, Nazareth, then Oak Park. Roxann called, Howard's kidneys were starting to fail. I went to the hospital in Fargo rather than to Hawley for Pastor Jaech's installation. Didn't get back til late. Howard has some ups and downs.
Ellie Nelson is now off glucose and appears to be able to maintain her own weight. She is in a regular isolet and not the high tech isolet. Hopefully she'll be able to come home soon. She already weighs much more than her brother, Eli.
Monday 12/7, tried to take the day off but ended up doing a lot of phone calls and writing. I did put up 5 quarts of pickled fish. They should be ready on the 16th.
Tuesday off to Fosston for dentist (Matt and Clara) and new tires on the car. Tried a visit on the way home. Shut-in not home.
Wayne O. is now home in Crookston. He's still in a lot of pain, but is doing better. Please keep him in your prayers.
Tried mon and tue to do a family visit, but they were unable.
Wed, tried visits in the morning, again, not home. Wed school in afternoon, Youthgroup Caroling in the evening. We had several different groups of kids, one group off to Fosston, a couple of groups to TRF, and I took a group to rural homes. My group got to 5 homes that evening.
Howard came home on Wed. He will be on hospice care. Please keep him in your prayers.
I talked to my mom last night. They've a lot of snow and had school canceled.
Thursday 12/10, off to TRF for shut-ins. Got to three. I tried another visit three different times but he wasn't home. Mavis is out of the hospital, and doing somewhat better. But she still is weak. Please keep her in your prayers. Ethel is hospitalized in TRF. She actually has the same room Mavis had on Friday. She was pretty perky, but still needs to get over her infection before she can have her surgery. Please keep her in your prayers.
I had a gluten reaction to the food I had at a restaurant that is usually very good at keeping GF. I'll have to call them to let them know that something was wrong.
Now I'm going to finish up on the Naz. Christmas program and try to get the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day services set up.
