Norma Stillings started out with a lot of energy last week. She played Christmas Songs at residential care homes in Mansfield and Hartville on Monday. Norma baked cookies, Monday evening, visited at Heart of the Ozarks Healthcare Center, Tuesday morning, and attended the Support the Handicapped Board Christmas meeting, Tuesday evening. She visited at Ava Place Wednesday morning, then played Christmas music at the Heart of the Ozarks at noon. By Wednesday evening, she started to run out of energy and that night she began coughing and coughing and coughing. So she canceled her Thursday, Friday, and Saturday activities, visited her doctor, got some medication, went by the library, went home and went to bed. It has been about six years since she had such a bad cough, but God was merciful, after spending a few days at home and a good night of rest Saturday night, Norma went out to church. She missed some of the church’s Christmas activities, but was able to get back to play the piano, Sunday.
