The Kofford Family relocates to Colorado after 40 years as Californians. In December of 2007, Grandma Lorraine is diagnosed with Stage 4 brain cancer. Sadly, she passed away on Dec. 26th, 2008 after a year long courageous battle. Follow our journey as we keep Lorraine's memory alive, and as we learn to appreciate that each day we are given, is a gift to be enjoyed!

Red Bluff Readers

Photobucket

Hello friends~ Today is a tough day for my mom, as she has begun to feel poorly. Things are changing, and her Hopsice nurse has started her on morphine to control the headaches and leg pain she is experiencing. Her blood pressure has been high, and she has had poor sleep each night due to the discomfort she is experiencing. I wanted to ask a favor of any Red Bluff readers. Right now, my mom's caregivers need to remain with her at all times, as it is not safe for her to be alone. I wanted to ask if any local readers would be willing to stop at the grocery store for her, or run a few errands until I can get our Helping Hands site set up for those needs? Please contact me if you would be able to run a few errands this week, it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for your kindness!

Denise, I'm so sorry to hear about your mom's downturn. I know it's hard to be far away right now, but you are doing all you can to support her from afar. Keep us posted, as I know you will. My thoughts go out to you and your mom at this time.

Denise, I can drive down from Redding if need be. Let me know. I will be going through Red Bluff on Friday on my way to Sac if that helps. I can do whatever you need.

If she needs any extra marketing done, or additional errands, I will be there all week-end! Happy to do it!! I will call your mom in teh morning, and again on Saturday to see what all I can do.
