Hi ladies,

Just a quick update as I need to get to work.

Grandma is mentally feeling better, physically not as much. She saw the Dr. yesterday, he told her it will take quite some time to feel better, but that she will probably never be 100% again. The Dr. was rather negative (the man has NO bed side manner at all).

I have been trying to convince her to see a new Dr. for years, she may just listen this time. I am hoping that a better Dr. may be able to give her better insight.

I know she wanted to do a new post, but she is just not feeling up to it. So, I took it upon myself to let you know how she was doing.

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. I know she does read them when she is feeling up to it, and I am sure she will answer them all back when she can.

Gloria and family,
You are in my thoughts and prayers and I agree with your grand daughter.....GET A NEW DOCTOR!!!

Kim said...

Oh my poor sweet Gloria! I'm so sad to hear this. I will keep sending the prayers up for this special lady. Thanks so much for keeping us up to date. Give her a big smooch for me!

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Thanks for the update!
Dear Gloria,
Thanks for the note. I can't believe you thought of me when your so sick. Just rest, rest, and drink your fluids! HA! Now I sound like the Dr. I got a funny card I am mailing out today. I hope it lifts your spirits a bit.

Karen said...

Hey there Sweet Thing!
You just don't worry about any of us - we're all here for you and if you should EVER need anything - put the word out! I'm leaving for Savannah tomorrow and will be back on Sunday night. But after that - you just let me know.
Many, many prayers for your quick recovery! I hope you are feeling soooooo much better very, very soon!
Much love and hugs! Karen

I hope your back in the saddle (so to speak) again soon. Pneumonia is not a pretty thing and can drain you for quite some time. Take care of yourself and I'll be praying for a quick recovery.

Dawn said...

Thank you Candace for the updates. We do think the world of your Grandma. She's pretty special but you already know that!

Gloria! I'm so sorry, I haven't been by since the hallway post and didnt' realize how sick you were. I'm so relieved to see a comment from you today! I think you should check into new doctor too. A good bed side manner is as important as a doctor's medical skills if you ask me. Take care lady! We love ya!
Hope Len figures out what to do ;)

afistfullofweeds* said...

Yes, definately a 2nd opinion!! As Ronald Reagan said "Trust, but Verify!" Get better real soon Gloria!! Love to you!! Rhonda

Elizabeth and Gary said...

Dear Gloria,
You poor dear! I hope your feeling better soon! You need to rest and let your body heal. Is there anything I can do for you?. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
Very big hugs, Elizabeth

I have missed what is going on. I am so sorry you are under the weather. Sure hope you have a fast and full recovery. (((hugs))).

Shelia said...

Oh, Dear Gloria! I'm so sorry to hear you're still sick. Well, I'm going to pray extra extra extra for you, Dear One! Thanks to your granddaughter for keeping us updated. Maybe you should listen to her and find a 'nice' doctor!
Love ya,
Shelia ;)

many prayers coming your way Gloria! get better soon, we miss you!

Unknown said...

Thanks for the update on Gloria. Be sure to tell her how much she is missed! Prayers for her complete recovery!


Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

Oh my! Somehow I missed that you were sick Gloria. Pneumonia is nothing to play around with -- so rest up and please take care of yourself. I sure found out about bedside manners when my sweet Dad was sick -- there's no reason to put up with a bad one! Find yourself a good Doc. It makes all the differenct. Sending hugs and chicken soup!

Eileen said...

Oh, I've been away from blogging for so long now, I didn't know Gloria was sick. I'm so sorry to hear this. Please tell your grandmother she is in my thoughts.
Thank you for posting this. Your family will be in my prayers.
All the best,

Please feel better soon Gloria. I've been so worried about you sweet friend. I really do hope you see a different doctor soon. He doesn't sound very nice.

Take care of yourself. ~Melissa

Picket said...

Thank you Candace....we all love our Gloria....my heart aches so bad for her..I wish I could be there to help her..cook...clean...talk to her.etc..I just feel so helpless...I went thru this with daddy twic within a few months and his doctors had nothing good to say at all..it is heartwrenching to see our loved ones sick and suffering...Please tell her I love her so I know she will get thru this and even amaze the doctors! Tell her I walk thru the house and look at all the beautiful treasures she has given me thru the years and I touch them and call her name...Please tell her I love her and she is in my heart and prayers...~Picket~

Hi Sis...

Just stopping by to check on you, Darlin'! Of course, I emailed you yesterday after getting your sweet note on my blog! Ohhh Sis...I'm sooo hoping that you are feeling a bit better today! I'm also really praying that Candice finds another Dr. for you to see! I just know that there is so much more than can be done for pneumonia! I tell ya what...I'm just so darn mad at your Dr. for talking to you like that...I just want to pinch his head off!!!

Well Sis...I may call tomorrow and check in with you! I hope that Lenny told you I called Monday night! I had a long conversation with him! Hehe! Please...please...feel better, Sweetie!!! You know that I'm praying for you!!!

Love ya, Sis...

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Hi Gloria,
I just need to stop by today and tell you I am thinking and praying and hoping your all better soon!

Shari @ My Cottage of Bliss said...

Gloria, I had a few minutes so I wanted to stop by to see what you have been up to lately. Imagine my surprise when I read Candace's posts that you have not been feeling well. I'm so sorry. Please rest up and take care so you are feeling like your spunky self soon.

Gypsy Heart said...

Gloria, dear heart, PLEASE see another Dr. I dislike negative comments/diagnoses. We can do a lot to heal ourselves but we often need medicine and positives to help us along. I don't understand this Dr making such comments.

You are so missed! I'm still treading water...or boxes...but trying to keep a grip on things.

Take really good care of YOU!


Sue said...

I hope you begin feeling better real soon, Gloria. And yes, get a doctor who listens to you and shows some empathy.. Mr. S had an ER doctor like that in Jan. Unfortunately, we couldn't get anyone else. It pained me that part of the insurance deductible had to go towards his fees. He was a jerk with absolutely no bedside manner. Sending good thoughts your way....
hugs, Sue

xinex said...

Thanks for the update. Please tell her to just rest and take it easy and that we love her....Christine

Sharing with Sherri said...


Please tell your dear grandma that I'm so sorry to hear that she has been ill, and that I'll be hoping and praying that she'll be feeling much better really soon!

Would you please give her a hug for me too?!


{Bellamere Cottage} said...

Please tell your grandma that I'll be lifting her up in prayer. I'm so sorry to hear she's not well. And, yes! She needs to find a CARING Dr.....a positive attitude is half the battle and he doesn't sound like he's offering her that.

Huge hugs to her!

onlymehere said...

Just checking in to see if there was an update today. I'm keeping you in my prayers. Hope you're back to your old self soon. :)

Susan (Between Naps On The Porch.net) said...

I don't think that doctor knows Gloria! I think he will be eating his words! Right, Gloria?

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Candace, thanks for this report. I am just checking in after being away for weeks! I had no idea Gloria was so sick. Please, PLEASE tell her I love her and have just prayed for her. Tell her not to believe that bad report of the doctor! We'll pray her through this.

I have had workmen in our retreat for weeks, and things kind of went awry. I played hooky today, and I came home to blog. I'm so sorry to hear this about our sweet Gloria. I love her so!

I hope it won't be much longer before I'm blogging again, but in the mean time, please let her know how much I love her and want her WELL! I know you want the same. She's such a sweetheart!
