A big hello to you All!
This is Sara writing on behalf of Mum/Moannie... she asked me to give you all an update as she is unable at this time to get to her beloved Paco and write to you all in her own inimitable fashion.

Yesterday she was in some discomfort with her breathing and it was decided it was best that she be admitted  into the local Hospice for monitoring and  assessment.

Last night NOAOS reported that she was comfortable and feeling safe and cared for.
Today JP/Dad and I visited her; although she is very tired and struggling, l am pleased to say she is not in any pain. As the Doctors and nurses continue to monitor her, the aim appears to be to get her as comfortable as possible with a view to coming home.

She sends you all her love and wants you to know that your comments have moved her very much and help to sustain her. My father, siblings and I are so very touched by your constant visits to her blog and please continue to drop by, as we read them all the comments and emails to her at each visit.

  9. Dear Sara,

    Thank you for letting us know what's going on with Moannie. I know it can't be easy for you, with all you've got on your plate just now, to be thinking about people that you've never even met. But thank you, thank you for that. We're all thinking not only of her, but of you and your family, sending supportive thoughts, and best wishes.

    1. Hi Jim, thank you so much for the tribute to Mum/moannie...I did send it to her via telephone..I believe she got the gist and was a bit teary...

      Everything is a bit overwhelming or just plain difficult for her to take in, if more than a bite size chunk. However I do keep reading out comments and posts a few at a time...

      I will update here next week as I hope to have some news....

  25. Moannie, Never have I known of such a brave woman as you. To have hid in the closet with your brother through the bombings in WWII;to be sent away to an orphanage only to have to give all of your candy away to the other children; to endure laughter when your wig fell off during your play; to travel all over the world not knowing what lies ahead;to have nursed others in time of sickness;to have looked death right straight in the eye and dare the "fecker" to have a go at you; to share this journey of life with no hesistation with all of the rest of us....you are the bravest, most admirable woman I have ever known (and I only wish I had known you better). If there is another life after this one, I hope above all other hopes that I will get to meet you in person or in spirit, whatever lies ahead of us. I am privileged to have spent the past year and a half following your blog, and I will be here til you come here no more. My prayers and my thoughts continue to be with you and I hope you will not suffer, but will pass to the other side with peace. Hugs.

  27. Nothing to add, I just have my fingers crossed that she is home soon where she belongs and that she knows how loved and worried about she is.
