My aunt was not feeling any better with her cold and decided she needed to go to the hospital. They decided they should keep an eye on her for a few days to make sure that the cold didn’t turn into pneumonia. We spent a lot time with her and taking care of things at her apartment for her.

The Wednesday before Christmas, we went down to Casa Grande. Jan and Bill invited us for dinner along with Dave and Sherry, John and Karen, and Polly and Vern. Had a wonderful time visiting and catching up with everybody. We also got to stop and visit for about ten minutes with Toni and Doug.

We get on the train coming back out to Mesa and I must admit the people on the train were “interesting” to say the least. We had a good time even though we didn’t get to see any lights.

On Christmas Eve day we got to take my aunt back to her apartment. She was really happy to get out of that hospital and was looking forward to seeing all her friends. The doctor told her to behave herself for at least two weeks but I’m not sure that’s going to happen.

  1. Glad your aunt is on the road to recovery! When you mentioned light rail, I wondered why we didn't do that. We didn't but it's still a fun thing to do. Maybe next time!


Thanks for visiting today. I look forward to reading your comments. Have a beautiful day.
