Blue Monday - Hospital Blues



Hello, this is Jenna and Ara, Smiling Sally's granddaughters. We are updating our grandma's blog for Blue Monday. As you know, she had surgery about two weeks ago. There were some complications, resulting in an additional surgery. She is currently in ICU, therefore she cannot update her blog. As for now, we will try our best to keep the spirit of Blue Monday alive. :) Please keep our grandma, Smiling Sally, in your prayers. The picture above is of the blue tubes, ventilators, that are helping her breathe. Thank you for reading. Please pray that Smiling Sally will be blogging soon about all things blue! :)

Thank you *so* much for updating! I've been worried about her. Though I am so sad that there were complications and that she is in ICU, I praise God for those precious blue tubes that are helping her breathe, and I pray that she heals quickly and is able to enjoy blogging again soon. She is missed! ((gentle hugs)) to Sally!
