Missing from Posting----Again

Max's mother died April 12.  She developed MRSA in her leg after surgery way back in December.  The wound never healed and things went from bad to worse.  It seems no one in the medical arena thought they should take swabs or blood tests until three days before she died......after the second surgery to take a look.  By then it was too late. Some very important lessons for us all here. I  wish I had insisted on tests months earlier but everyone said things were fine.

We hope to have everything finished with her apartment by next week.  She was a great lady and  will  be missed by everyone who knew her.

I hope to get settled down and do some blogging  soon.

We are in the midst of heavy rains and things are very green.  Iris and peonies are starting to bloom, Dames Rocket in white and purple is everywhere.  A few clematis are open.


  1. Dear, dear Glenda ~ I am so sorry for your loss. I know you, your dear husband and his mother were close.

    Love, hugs & prayers ~ FlowerLady

  2. I'm so sorry for your loss. It's never easy to lose a loved one.

  3. So, so sorry to hear of Max's mother's passing. No matter the age, it's a huge loss when we lose a parent. Sending my sincere sympathies to you both.

  4. My heart goes out to you, Max and the family. It's criminal that the medicos were so lax. Just a shame. Know that you and yours are in my thoughts. Take care, Kris

  5. I am sorry for the loss of your loved one.

  6. Shocked and saddened that your dear MIL has passed prematurely. Thinking of you and yours, Glenda.

  7. Oh, Glenda, I'm so sorry to hear this. I know you'll miss her but we do know death is just the passage into a different life, right?

    My neighbor came home from having surgery with MRSA. They have had a terrible time with it and he looks worse than I have ever seen him, like he aged 20 years over night. We've had MRSA before, JC brought some home from our local swimming pool, and it is absolutely necessary to learn to recognize it and get on it right away. It starts like a hard, red pimple but has a soft, well defined, sunken center that looks like it contains pus, and does, but if you try to expel the pus, it comes out in a long "string". And yes, our doctor always recognized it for what it was and was able to nip it in the bud. If you think you have MRSA, tell the person who answers the phone and they will do everything they can to get you right in. If, for any reason, they set your appointment out too far, go to a rapid care clinic or the ER and tell anyone that will listen that you think it's MRSA. Hugs xoxoxo

  8. The blog are the best that is extremely useful to keep.
    I can share the ideas of the future as this is really what I was looking for,
    I am very comfortable and pleased to come here. Thank you very much!
