Long weekend

Thanksgiving has come and gone.

We have so many reasons to be thankful not only on Thanksgiving day but every day. This Thanksgiving we spent the day celebrating at my parents house in Fairfax with the Bradfield side of the family. It was great to get everyone together. I know that Grandpa enjoyed having all his grandkids and great grandkids together in the same house too.

We also received a call on Thanksgiving afternoon that our Grandma Kemerling was being taken to the hospital. She has been having difficulty breathing and some internal bleeding. The prognosis is not good, as she is having more heart failure (which she has been having for the last few years) than pneumonia. She will not keep her IV in, and the doctors have stopped giving her any medicines/fluids/food, however she has been pretty agitated, so they have given her something that is helping her sleep . Her heart is weak and her body is worn out. She was partially awake when my sister and I stopped by on Thursday evening. Even though she really couldn't talk, I know that she knows we were there and that we love her. Please keep her and our family in your prayers. We just pray that she feels no pain and when it is her time to go, she will go in peace.

My stepson, Wyatt, has been with us all week. We have enjoyed every minute. Tomorrow he departs to head back to Idaho. Last night we celebrated Christmas with him and must say that all of his gifts were a hit! I will try and post some pictures of our week in the next day or two.

Tonight is our last night together with him and we are eating ice cream, watching some football and snow falling outside. A very relaxing night and a very early morning to the airport tomorrow.

Just a quick update from me. Hoping you all had a wonderful holiday weekend!
