Happy Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary to my husband!  32 years ago today we said “I Do”  We’ve have shared tears of Joy & sadness, we’ve had good and bad times, we’ve weathered many storms through the years and battled personal & health issues.  But the one thing through all the years and all the good and bad times is our Love has remained faithful and true!  No matter what life has thrown our way we have weathered it all and remained standing together as one!  We are blessed to have the faithfulness and love that God has blessed us and together we love and worship our heavenly father who blessed us with the Love for one another.  I couldn’t have received a better gift from God than the gift of being your wife.  I am beyond blessed to call you my soul mate, lover and best friend.  Happy Anniversary honey and I look forward to many more years of being your wife.

Home from Surgery

On May 4th I had my complete hysterectomy due to cancer and genic genes.  I spent the night over night in the hospital and I’m so happy to be back home in my own bed!

I decided to spend a bit of time outside enjoying the warmth and a bit of sunshine.  As you are aware it’s been a ruff year for me fighting health issues.  My entire winter has been spent mostly recovering from surgeries and health issues.  I have one more surgery scheduled for June 23rd and I pray it will be the last and our lives can finally turn around get some normal to them without running back and for to doctors and treatments.  I am doing pretty good considering what all my body has been through.  My summer looks to be spent recovering from surgeries but I’m beginning to see the end of the tunnel and hopefully that is daylight looking through the end of the tube.

My baby says “I Do”!

It’s hard to believe that my baby is 27 years old and is just now finally getting married.  It’s hard to believe how fast time flies and they grow up into young men.

No matter how grown he is .. of course he will always be Momma’s baby!  I am proud of the man he has become and I’m happy that he has finally decided after 7 years of being with the girl who stole his heart to make it official.  I’m proud to welcome our new daughter Kelsey into the family although she has been apart of the family from the very beginning.

They chose to get married near the home that my children were born and raised in until adulthood.  Yes your seeing correctly they got married on a boat!  It was the perfect weather for a outside ceremony!

Congrats Gabe and Kelsey, may you have many years of happiness and joyful years together as man and wife.

Sunshine and Warmth!

11063939_10204647253516131_8255910618210422208_n

This past week has been gorgeous weather but I’m sick and stuck in bed! I did get a few days that I could get a walk in.  On Tuesday I had to visit my dentist as I have a tooth ache and of course it couldn't be pulled that day so I had to reschedule for April 28th, Yep you read that right unbelievable! I woke up Friday morning and I had a very swollen jaw! I ended up going to the dr and getting test ran to see where all the infection had gone.  Yep, it had spread to my sinus cavity and glands.  So more medication, bed rest and eating soft foods was the orders.

Since we’ve had beautiful weather I’ve been enjoying it from within Sad smile  I tried sitting outside to enjoy some of the fresh air but the minute the wind hit my jar instant pain so it was back indoors and so I left the front door open and enjoyed the sunshine from a laying position. 

I’ve been eating soft foods and so I’m sure that the scales is going to reflect it soon Sad smile  But I’m not  on a diet, I’m learning to change my life style and so as with all things the good comes with the bad.  Right now I’m doing well to eat things, so mac and cheese, ice cream and yogurt and cottage cheese with chicken noodle soup have been big in my food intakes.  Anything that will fill the tummy and keep the jaw from hurting!

March came in like a Lion!

March came in like a Lion and I’m so hoping that March will go out like a Lamb!  We got more snow and cold temps the first of March!  I can not express how much I am so ready for Spring, Sunshine and warmth!  I have spent my entire winter snuggled up inside and most of it has been spent recovering.  I am happy to announce that I have finished the fillings and now I have to wait a certain amount of time before my expanders can be removed and my implants installed. A tentative surgery date to finish up my breast is set for June 22nd.  It’s been a long & painful recovery but I’m just thankful that as of now my breast are cancer free!  I will have yearly checkups to make sure that no masses or cancer returns. 

On another note of health issues … My hysterectomy has been moved up from June to May 4th!  New cancer cells have been found but on a good note they are not attached to a blood supply or no masses.  I am starting another round of treatment until I can get my surgery to remove my female organs.  I am dreaming of being able to head south next winter.  Florida beaches are calling my name.

Happy 76th Birthday Dad

It’s hard to believe that today is your 76th birthday and you are not here to celebrate it with us.  I know your no longer on earth but you will always remain in my heart.  I know that your celebrating your birthday with you beloved son Steven who you lost so many years ag, our beloved Bobbi Jo who God called home way to early.  I know that you and Momma Viv are happy to be reunited.  I am happy that you are no longer suffering in pain and discomfort as cancer ate away at your body. 

 

005

Yet my heart still aches for you, my heart has a void, my heart is still broken.  I know that you wanted me to be strong not only for you but my brothers and sisters but daddy no matter how hard I try to let my heart mend it’s still broken over losing you.  There is a piece of me that is missing and that piece is my daddy.  I look back through pictures of you during your last days here on earth and I remember how hard you fought not for yourself but for your children who were not ready to let you go.  I remember you telling me you were ready to go home.  You were tired of fighting a disease that was eating your body up.  You fought hard and strong and you stayed true to your words that you would fight till your very last breathe for your children.

006

Family meant everything to you, your children and grandchildren were the apple of you eye, the pride that you proudly bared to all that we were yours.  The hugs, the kisses, the I Love you every time we said good bye.  You made sure that every time we had to part we knew just how much you loved us.  You  wore your heart on your sleeve when it came to your family and friends.

003

I cherish the moments we had together.  I recall each and every time you held me in your arms.  I close my eyes and fill you with your arms wrapped around me.  Oh what I would give to just have you hold me in your arms one more time, to hear you whisper I love you baby girl, just to see your sweet smiling face.

Daddy you are not here to celebrate your birthday but know that you were in my thoughts all day.  I have cried several times today yearning to have you hold me and tell me it will be alright.  I tried to hold close to my heart that you were ready to go home and leave a world your body was filled with pain.  Instead of thinking of how much I hurt that God called you home before I was ready to let you.  I pray to God that he let’s you know that I think of each and every day.  I love to be in the room where you took your last breathe, I love to look at the picture of you that hangs on my wall, I love to feel that you are with me here in your home and in my heart.

Daddy I cherish the family reunion that you so wanted to have before you had to say good bye to us all.  When I look at these pictures I think if only I had known how little of time we actually had left.  I know in my heart you crossed over knowing that your children loved and adored you, your children knew and felt all the love you had for them.  So on this day I want to say Happy Birthday Daddy.  I love you more than words can say!
