my mom, Weekly Sentence #30 letters...

Hi!  Sorry I haven't posted the six letters for the "Weekly Sentence" game yet.  I will in this entry.  I have been busy.  My mom went in for emergency cervical/spine surgery this  morning at 7 AM.  I am still waiting for a phone call to hear that she is okay.  My momma has been pretty sick the past year with nausea, numbness, problems walking, well a host of ills... and they found a problem with her disk at c-3 on her spine on an MRI.  They called her Saturday morning and told her not to move or she could be paralyzed.  So it must be pretty bad.  They scheduled her first thing for surgery this morning.  Mom will be 76 this month.  Thanks for your concern and prayers.  I will be helping mom and dad when mom gets out of the hospital in a few days, so if I am not in close contact for a week or two, you guys know why.  I was going to go to Hershey with Krissy and John and walk in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Walk, but my parents need me now.  If you got an email from John or Krissy concerning the walk and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, please consider giving!  It is such a worthy cause!!  They helped save John's life!!!  Now onto the "Weekly Sentence" game!

Before I proceed with the six letters I would like to once more congratulate last week's winners, Connie of
ANYWAY... and Rosemary of InspirationI will give you guys until Saturday morning at 9 AM EDT, since I am so late posting.  So ignore the submission date in the rules.  Speaking of the rules, if you haven't read them in a long time, or never have, please do.  Have fun with the letters!


          Each Sunday I post a set of six letters.  A sentence must be
          made from these letters.  The letters today are:

          An example of a sentence could be - 
Rachael snored through
          her favorite song.
These letters MAY NOT be re-arranged.
          There is a three - five persons judge panel (of JLand bloggers)
          that chooses the best sentence (or two) submitted each week.
          How do they choose winning sentence(s)?  The sentences that
          receive the strongest reactions -  Did it make them laugh, sad,
          ponder, etc.? Was it creative?  Witty?  These are winning

          The winner(s) receives a logo for his/her blog sidebar with
          their screen name on it.

          Place submissions in comments section.  If you do this game as
          an entry in your blog, please come back and leave your ENTIRE

          entry URL so your entry can be judged. 
Submissions are due by
Thursday, 4PM EDT. The winner is announced Friday morning
          or early afternoon.

          A new set of letters is placed in my journal, There is a Season,
          every Sunday morning or early afternoon.

          If you submit more than one sentence, only your first sentence

          will be judged.

          Have fun!!

This Week's Letters:

P.S.  I just got a call from the hospital.  My mom is okay.   It was a four hour surgery.  I found out that she got a whole disk taken out.  Then they put in a metal plate in c-3 and c-4 and screws.  Wow.  She is a trooper.  She has to go to a local rehabilitation hospital to stay for awhile.  It was pretty major, but she is okay.  Thank goodness.   I have to go help my Daddy.  He is 80.   I will let you all know how it goes. 


  1. Gee Val, I don't know how you do it! Glad Mom has gotten out of surgery. I will pray for her and recovery.
