The VERY Short Post!

Visiting Keith these last few days at the Dwight D. Eisenhower 
Veterans Affairs medical center in Leavenworth... no one is 
there on Saturday and Sunday, in fact, there were only 11 cars in the 
main parking lot yesterday.  Much different during the week, believe me, while 
the health teams are there. 

This lobby is hoppin' during the week... and I am ashamed to tell you that the last banner on the right was for the United States Merchant Marine, also one of the SIX services covered.  I have walked past these banners for five years without it sinking in.  
Mea culpa.  

Anyone remember these?????

My life these last three days has consisted of running back and forth between Keith at the VA, and brother Pete at St. John's Hospital right across the street in Leavenworth, and trying to fit regular life in between. 
I am going to try to get out to the old house with Lilly early tomorrow to 
see how things were left on Saturday when I ran out the door abruptly to 
take Keith to the hospital.  

I have a beautiful picture of something on my SPRINT serviced phone... that I can't get to mail to myself so 
I can show it to you.  I'll try again overnight so I can show you tomorrow. 

Told you it was a short post!  


  1. So sorry to hear that Keith is in the hospital, and Pete. Thinking of you.

  2. Do hope Keith will be able to be home soon and that your brother is improving.

  3. All my best wishes for a speedy recovery go out to both your Keith, and to your brother.

  4. Mary Ann,

    Sending prayers and hugs for a speedy recovery of Keith and your brother.

  5. Running to the hospital to visit loved ones is no fun at all and tires one out. Hopefully soon Keith will be home with you.

  6. Being back and forth at the hospitals takes a lot of time. Can wear a body down.

    Take care,

  7. I am just now catching up on my blog reading, and am sorry to hear about Keith's hospital stay. I'm glad he seems to be doing better, and hope he's soon able to go home! Prayers for you and your family...Pete included!

  8. Oh Mary Ann!!!
    I don't know how you keep going !


I love comments!
