Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Hello and warm wishes for a holiday seaons filled with making good memories and / or calling them up.

I have some good news re Chris Mum and Dad. Pam has relented and is permitting someone to come in and clean for 1 hour every other week. Age Concer got them hooked up to a community group which brings in meals 2 days a week. All of this is a boon to Arthur who is feeling less isolated by Pam's need for constant supervision. Their friends are stepping in more too. They too Arthur to have his cateracts surgery and stayed with Pam while he was in for a while after as he recuperated. They meet every other week for a meal out too. God bless friends.

Good news re my kids. They both have real jobs. Hilary will soon have health insurance and may even be considered for a management post. Her partner and his 2 young school aged children have moved in with her into a 3 bed house, near the kid's school and near community swimming pool. She is feeling so much better physically and is even making noises about wanting a baby.

My son has been hired part time by the company for which he has been doing contract work over the last couple of months. Fingers crossed this will soon become full time and he can get health insurance too. He is happy in relationship with a lovely girl who actually shared some classes with sister Andie. She is around the same age Andie would be. Funnily, my son looks so like my little brother Timmy and his girlfriend looks like she could be the younger sister of Timmy's wife. If we ever have a family reunion I am going to be doing constant double takes.

I am still pretty sick and in pain but I feel a lot happier knowing my kids are well and happy.

Hugs and many happies to you all.
