We're jumping for joy at our house. I should have done this post for Thankful Thursday, because we are so thankful that we were able to raise a little over $750 so that Cheriswan's mom could go with Cheri's dad to the big city when he has his surgery on Monday. in fact, I think they were to leave today so she could get settled in and plan her route to the hospital for early Monday morning.
I know that Cheriswan has thanked each individual donor personally, but I just wanted to say thanks too.
Thanks to the generosity once again of all our Twitter pals, she will be able to spend some time in the big city with him. He's having some pretty serious surgery, and M said she couldn't imagine having to send Dad that far away by himself to face surgery alone. Now, thanks to all of you, Cheri's mom can be with Cheri's dad.
Stay tuned this week for Tweets from @Cheriswan because her mom was taking her IPhone or whatever gizmo she has, with her to the hospital and will keep us posted on his progress.
Meanwhile we'll keep Cheri's dad in our thoughts and prayers that the surgery goes very well and that he is able to get back home to his family soon.
I keep repeating this over and over, but it's so true. Our Twitter pals and Blogger pals are so generous when helping each other out in a crisis. You all ROCK!! We do take care of our own don't we!!
I'm also drumming up business for M's blog. Both my peeps have Parkinson's Disease. M started a new blog about a month ago about the Disease and their journey. If you have an interest, please go over and take a peek. http://shufflingalongwithpd.blogspot.com/2011/10/solution-no-i-stair-climber.html
I've joined the Saturday Blog Hop too. Hop on board because it's fun and you'll meet lots of new pals.
