So much has happened since my last blog. Thank goodness you did turn that corner for us . you admitted on a Monday night and released on the following Saturday afternoon. It's always a good feeling to bring you home. You do so much better in your own environment. You did end up with a blood transfusion after all. Thanks again to all the selfless blood donors :) It will be my turn to donate soon. Your fever fizzled out as soon as you came home but you didn't bounce back as quickly as I would have liked you to. Stupid virus!
I took you to finally meet your Great Great Grandma Harmer on Feb. 16th. She passed away in her sleep on the 17th. We put her to rest in the Koosharem cemetary on the 26th. It was a day well spent with your family. I didn't know how you would react to seeing her for the first time since she was so old ( almost 97 ) and in pretty rough shape, but you were as usual were very pleasnt around her. And as far as the funeral went, the same. You agreed that she looked like an angel in her casket as you smiled at her and said she went up high to heaven. We lost a good horse that same day. Ricky. He was your Grandpa Kravet's horse, but he was one that I had many fond memories of riding in my teen years and was the best grand kid horse ever.
Yesterday we lost our beloved Carmen. She was just barely 33 years young. She had been battling cancer and Lymes disease for about 10 months. It was not the cancer that took her, but a complication. ( I think a blood clott) She was so cheerfull and positive the whole way through. Reminds me of you. You two are a lot alike. Both are the sunshine of your families. She was your Great Aunt on your daddy's side. She was young, beautifull, kind, and loving to everyone she knew. She was truly an angel on earth. Now she is an angel in heaven. You loved her and she loved you. She loved everyone. SHe had a huge heart full of love for everyone in her life, but I think she felt a connection to you even before you and she was diagnosed. She will so be missed. Our hearts are broken. I will post a picture of her for you. It's one that I like a lot. We are camping at the property, it is just after you were diagnosed and about a month or two into treatment. She was still healthy then and just loving you. She was a great support to us always helping us think positive and listening to me as I would talk things out. Rest in peace Carmen Whetman Thomas. We love you forever.
