It is now over one month, since my Mom went to heaven and I want to THANK all of you for your sweet comments, emails and any support that we have received. It feels good for having such an extended network of friends that do care and are there for one another during times of trial.
YES, I am doing fine! Photo from February 8, when we went for a walk around the neighborhood.

When I did see this Cashmere knit top on sale at Last Call by Neiman Marcus, I had to have it...
Waiting long enough, it went down from $ 298.00 to $ 89.50!
Love its Words of Wisdom; like Life's Complete Poetry!
Aside from that, this very Cashmere top I will treasure forever, as I wore this during the last FaceTime call with Mom; 2-½ days before her death.
Here I am wearing it on my black Escada jeans from the Last Call Neiman Marcus Outlet in Orlando, Florida and with my sleeveless black cashmere mock neck underneath for added warmth.
Suede boots are also from Last Call.
Yes, I have lost weight, all the way down to 50.9 kg (112 lbs) I went back up to 51.7 kg (113.7 lbs) on January 21 and now I'm around 52 kg (114.4 lbs) and feeling great; which is important!
Mainly I have been worrying about his guy... Husband Pieter had heart cramps or Angina Pectoris.
Guess it was from all the stress and emotions from the last couple of months.
On February 17, Pieter got all the results from his Cardiologist from the Electrocardiogram, Nuclear stress test and Echo and he does not need surgery. On March 10, he is seeing his Heart Surgeon. We were so happy!
It is only 4-½ years ago since Pieter had his quadruple bypass and these heart cramps did scare us.
Ironically, his previous appointment with his Heart Surgeon on January 27, got cancelled... that was the day Mom went to heaven!
I want to keep this guy next to me for many more years; God willing!
On the day that my youngest brother did FaceTime, while he was visiting Mom in the hospital, I did walk outside with my iPad so husband Pieter too could see Mom and talk with her.
It was when Pieter almost had finished the 57 m (187 ft) long Wood Trail from the greenhouse up near the house.
Huge tree roots had lifted it up, so Pieter did take it up entirely, put new wood beams underneath and took all rusted nails out and drilled in life-time warranty screws.
He also put side boards alongside, for keeping the soil from getting washed by rain onto the trail.
Pieter did treat it with a wood preservative.
Here I proudly stand on the finished Wood Trail on January 28, the day after Mom went to heaven, together with Spicy (a.k.a. Speckie-girl).
Just iPhone pictures but you get an idea...
