Ann looked good and acted good. She still coughs and still takes medicine. She had pneumonia for the second time although it was a different kind. In about six weeks, when all infection is gone, she is to go back to the hospital and they are going to do something where they can look into the lungs and be sure all is o.k.
Bob went back to work the day after Christmas but Pat stayed and he will be back tonight. All of us are going to Bones for dinner. He has to be back at the hospital at 3:00 tomorrow so we'll have an early dinner.
Pat and I ran some errands yesterday and then went to a coffee.
The weather is ugly--icy one minute & slushy the next and cloudy.
I hope Aunt Beatrice is better but I don't see how she could be. Her heart must be just worn out. They have had such a time for so long.
I sent Aunt Nora a birthday card but I didn't think she was quite 80. I gave her some stockings for Christmas and just guessed at the size so I hope they fit.
We still have the tree up for I just haven't had time to take it down.
I'd better get the bed made and get dressed so let's all hope next year will be a good year for the world."
Thank you for your comments, emails, cards and encouragement, and for reading another year of letters. I hope to see you back in 1975. You will notice that the letters of 1975 were saved with less regularity and some weeks are missing.
Happy New Year and yes, let's hope next year will be a good year for the world!
