Under construction, sort of like things around here

st_construct_hbridge_dblenhanc
There used to be a vacant lot here, used for parking. Now it's the site of a new high rise office building a couple of blocks from the Willamette River. That the west end of the Hawthorne Bridge in the distance.

No real news on the Mama front other than she's not regressed, thank goodness. There is a chance that we will get to have a risk/benefit conversation with the cardiovascular surgeon about this work that needs to be done on her carotid arteries and the bypass surgery. We might find out tonight, but more likely in the morning--if the stars are a-lined.

We've got other problems, short-lived ones, we hope. My brother woke up with a virus which has caused him grief all day, and now he's exhausted and has been dozing on the couch with Duncan. I do not feel very well myownself. Also, Portland's experiencing extremely cold temperatures which makes us even more susceptible to feeling poorly. I got us some popsicles and crackers and Gatorade earlier, so we're ready for anything.

Thanks for your continued prayers and kind comments.

I am sending you the best thoughts that will get you through the next days and weeks feeling so much better. And that is not just some photo blog girl talking. I truly wish you and your family well. Really well.

Lynette, hope you both recover quickly. Tell Mamma we all ask about her.

Best of Luck with your mother, she will be in my prayers.

I love the photo, nothing like progress to carry us into the future.

I think everyone in your family is under lots of stress so your immunity is down. Keep warm if you can and try to get enough rest which hopefully will prevent anyone else from getting sick. Take care!

Bless your hearts. Hope all is better soon.

Yes, construction seems to be everywhere. -a small sigh-

You have been under great strain and stress. It's no wonder that you are not feeling very well. Please take care of yourself. You can't be of help to others, if you get sick yourself, you know.

Hugs,
