Hello Ellen. How are things with you? Are you aby better? I do not know what has hit me but this is my third night being up all night. I am exhausted. Russ is a lot of care. Very wanting. Hates to be alone. Tom is exhaisted. I did not go to Church as Russ would be alone. Tom had to go as he was a server. Doing nothing for Labor Day. The beaches here are filled to overflowing and the city is mobbed with tourists. Hope all is getting better with you. Your ducks smile at me everyday. HUGS,Reed

Hi Ellen-I was happy to hear from you. The pictures were all hung in the apt. Now it really feels like home. I have been feeling tired the past few days b/c I wake up at 4 AM and cannot sleep anymore. I like your purple page, it is very pretty. The weather has cooled off quite a bit, but we are supposed to have summer again this week. I can't believe it is already Sept. Where did the summer go ? I hope you are feeling a little better. I am sure the morphine helps with your pain, but watch out how much you take. It has some undesirable side effects. Have you been able to spend much time outside ? I know you like to be outside. I pray you will feel better soon. Take care. Susan

I've been thinking of you today. I hope your days are going better for you. Take care and keep the faith. My prayers are with you.

Ellen-I was so happy to hear from you. I hope you are feeling a little better. I have been saying special prayers for you. We do like it here. The boxes are all gone and the only thing left to be done is hang the pictures. Maintenance will be coming this week to do that. It is nice to just call " if we want anything hung or fixed. All of the pieces of furniture that we brought fit in perfectly in the rooms.
We don't eat here too much. We chose not to have a meal plan. We like to eat at different places in the area. It is the same town that our house is in and we have our favorite places to eat dinner. Besides, the dining room here has a dress code and Jim doesn't like to get dressed up for dinner, he prefers to just wear shorts. Maybe when the weather gets colder we will get a 20 day meal plan. Zorro is adjusting to living here. He has several places to sit and look outside. Jim put up several bird feeders to attract birds that he can watch.
Are you getting any treatment for your problems ? What do the docs say they can do for you ? I certainly hope something will work.
Take care of yourself. Susan

Hi Ellen Thanks for the gorgeous Laurel Burch Cats... I love them! I have always loved her cats and started doing my own cat paintings a while back too :-) How are you doing?

I hope things have gotten better for you. I just read through your last email again. It's no fun being in the Hospital. Keep the faith Ellen. There are allot of people out here pulling for you. I was beside myself before I heard from you. Just think you could loose your legs or arms. This must be better than that.

Hi Ellen. Like all your other friends, I'm wishing you the best. Stay in touch. Trudy

Hi Ellen, I'm so sorry about the new tumor- I hope the morphine is helping you, you're strong and you'll get through this. Sending you prayers and hoping you will get your strength back. Meee

Dear Ellen-I read the message you left on Cathy's page. I am so sorry to hear the docs have found a new tumor on your liver. I pray the morphine gives you some relief. All of your friends on TuD have been worried about you. We have checked with each other and read all messages you have sent. Please rest and try to get your strength back. We are all pulling for you because we all love you. Susan

Dear Ellen,
How awful for you. Morphine is bad but glad to hear it helps the pain. My prayers have been with you and I think about you everyday. Between allot of the other members and myself I figured you weren't very well. I hope you don't have too much more trouble. Let me know about the Tumor when they find out anything more about it if it's malignant or not. We want you around for a very long time. Do you have help? I will be going out of town 24th - 26th but may be able to come help after that. Let me know. Good luck to you and I hope you get well soon.
Love Cathy Read
