It’s been a really rough 2016 on me personally and it’s not helping with trying to keep the website updated.
Some folks have asked- my mom is still in the hospital and will probably be in that type of facility for the rest of her life. She is in late stages COPD with a ton of other health issues such as a trach, dialysis, congestive heart failure, kidney failure and the last goes on and on. The other issue is that she is in a hospital that is about an hour away from me. I’m trying my best to keep C4K running smooth, while still working full time, raising a 9 year old and getting up to see mom as much as possible.
Sorry for the delay with the updates; I really do plan on doing better.
Last weekend we dropped off 45,000 cards to a great little charity in Lexington, Kentucky called – Keep In Touch – West End. They are a great little charity that work with kids in the Douglas Park area and the cards will going to great homes.
