Thank you all for your good vibes and prayers!

My mom was moved yesterday from the hospital to a nursing facility. Hans' son and my daughter visited her, and sent some pictures. She DOES look frail, but, to be honest, I have seen her looking almost as bad before...

So, things are getting a bit better. They are still not sure of all of the effects from the stroke, but time will tell. My sister is coordinating the effort, it is only 4 hours flying from her house, as opposed to 10 hours for me...

She is receiving hospice care, and will more than likely be discharged to a board and care home in Redlands. She is no longer able to care for herself, and so the apartment is no longer an option, unless something dramatic happens. She is a tough old lady, and may continue to surprise us.

So, things are better. I am staying in The Netherlands. Hans' kids are coming in March for his 65th birthday. We will have a full house, for sure!

Thanks, again, to everyone for your support!!!!!

Dutch hugs, Kathi
