Mission Started!

My sister Lisa came over yesterday and we got to work on packing up the kitchen. We thought that would be a good place to start. I'm so thankful we got so much work done. Thanks very much, Lisa! I had a good time with you yesterday and appreciate all your hard work and help.

Well, my MIL is still waiting to hear if she will be able to go on her trip. Her doctor won't release her to go without reviewing the films of her heart. (Remember, she was at our house an hour away from home when she had the heart attack so all of her care was at the hospital here in this area - same place *I* was.) So yesterday she got the 'run around' in trying to obtain the necessary films for her own doctor to see. No one but her can pick them up, due to the privacy laws. Hopefully everything will go smoothly for her to get them from the office here and take them to her appointment there. I know she's looking forward to going away :)

In other news, I have a doctor's appointment this morning to see my plastic surgeon. Tomorrow I will meet with the oncologist to discuss chemotherapy treatment.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday!

  2. Oh Michelle...

    I'm so glad that you've started the packing...I know how hard it is just getting started. I'm glad your sister was able to help.

    We'll be praying for you MIL ~ that all goes well and that she gets to go away.

    Blessings & prayers for you as you meet with both Doctors in the next couple of days.


  3. Oh it looks so organized, you guys did a great job!! What a good start! And I pray Sandy gets to go on her trip with the Dr.s ok..
    I am sure she needs it. Will continue in prayer as you go to your Dr. appts.


  4. Aren't sisters wonderful? It looks like you got a great start on packing. (If the kitchen is packed you won't have to cook!:)
    Good luck at your surgeon's apt and when you meet with the oncologist tomorrow. May you feel some peace knowing your many friends are praying for you and your family.
    Bless your heart and with many prayers,


  5. Sisters are the best!!!! I think it's a great idea to start on the kitchen because there is always so much "stuff" in there. When we moved I realized I have FOUR SPATULAS!! Who in the world needs four spatulas?????? lol

  6. I'm so happy you got to spend time with your sister, even if it was work related. Wow, you got a lot done. What a sweet sister. I will pray for your doctor visit this morning and that your mother in law has no trouble getting the film and that her doctor says she can go on her trip.

    Michelle, Thanks so much for your sweet e-card. I loved it. You are such a caring and thoughtful person. I'm blessed to call you friend. After years of being behind, I'm working most days ALL day just cleaning out closets and canning. I really do look forward to sending you a little treat or something in the mail next week. Hugs, Kathi

  7. Hi Michelle, Thinking of you today and tomorrow. email me on your Dr. visits! XXOO Diana Lyn

  8. Hey Michelle,
    Just checking in with you to let you know that I'm still praying for you. I'm praising God that you all found a house!! I hope you will take all the help you can get and not work too hard during the transition!
    Blessings and (((hugs)))

  9. So glad you were able to spend time with your sister and get started! Looks like you both must be extremely organized!!

    Oh I do pray that all things will fall into place for your mother in law to be able to go on the trip.

    Praying on-

  10. Michelle,

    What a big relief for you to get the kitchen packed! What a sweet sissy you have! It is fun to work together isn't it. We have been working a lot as a family getting our son and his future wife's home in order. You have so much going on. I really pray you get some peace and quiet for awhile. Good luck at the doctor.

    God bless you!


  11. I'm so glad you have help with your packing, even better that it's your sister!

    I sure hope your mother-in-law gets to go on her trip! I'm sure it will be great medicine for her!

    Hope all goes well with the oncologist tomorrow!

    Have a great Thursday!

  12. Wish we had a GW near here...the closest one is almost an hour away.

    Have a great day!
