Update Of All That's Been Going On

 

It doesn't look good for my sister  Ann , she is now in a coma , has been since Tuesday  she has not been  responding to any thing so now the Dr’s and a counselor have to talk to my brother in law and family to see what the next step is , in the beginning the Dr’s did say after trauma like this patients don't come back from it ,  so we shall have to wait till the counselor has spoken to her family and go from there .  I am praying for a miracle here .

      I have been keeping busy whilst all this unhappiness has been going on in the family  with happy things like  digging in my gardens  ,  playing with my Miggs  and my photography  and enjoying the  nature we have here as the birds of spring and summer return  , it is so nice to see and hear them again .

                                                     Here are photos of the goings on in the yard so far .

                                                      After all that playing time to snooze in warm breezes !

                                 Whilst Miggs was resting  I  continued on with taking  photos of other things .

                                                                                             Then the next day .

                                          Look it is Tang our Baltimore Oriel , he has come back to . WOOHOO !

MAY 2016 (44 of 50)

So far we have two male Baltimore’s and two male Orchard Oriels  more will be returning soon , they are hungry and have been feasting at the nectar feeders all day .

                                         This little guy showed up a few days before and has been shy but not this time .

                                                                 The gardens are blooming like mad as well .

MAY 2016 (26 of 50)

    Everything is blooming and thickening up and  returning , House Wrens are back all though quite shy with the camera for now , Barn Swallows are flying around chatting up a storm chasing each other about . Now I am  keeping an eye out for our Hummers  to come to my feeders .  I love this time of year .

                                               To my sister  Ann  , I love you and pray you have more seasons in the sun !

Sorry about the hard times in the family but happy for you that you are able to make the best of your days at this time of year. It looks delightful there with all of the birds. Great stuff.

Your plight brings tears to my eyes. I came very close to losing my younger sister a few years ago so I have somewhat of an idea what you are going thru. New life in the garden can be a bit of a comfort. Wishing you and your family strength in the days and weeks to come. Sending hugs.

Praying for your sister to come through this ordeal, and for comfort for you at this time. The birds have returned to cheer you up, and such beautiful birds. Hugs to you,

Continued positive thoughts for Ann and all of your family.
We have lots of birds back too, not the hummers or orioles. But when you see them at your place they arrive at ours a few days after.
Take care of yourself during these challenging times.

It does help to get your mind off thinking of sadness concerning your sister, Ann. Hope that the diagnosis turns out better than what you posted.
