About Me

My photo
I am a person who loves life and loves capturing it in pictures and recording it in many ways. I have been happily married for over 40 years to my wonderful husband Mike. We have raised 4 daughters, were foster parents for 11 years and are now raising 2 of our grandchildren. They are the love of our lives and the light in our eyes. At this time in our lives, we would expect to be planning for retirement, but instead we are planning for the future of these children. Starting over so to speak. At the ripe old age of 50, I found myself as a mom of a pre-schooler again so it's the second time around for us, thus my title. We attend church and teach Sunday School. Life is never dull, as you can imagine. Enjoy the pieces of our lives and allow this grandmother some bragging rights occasionally, ok very often.

Oncologist Appt.

Today we met with Dr. Khan, the oncologist in Rome. He has ordered a third biopsy since the first two didn't show any cancer cells. Mike will begin 4 rounds of chemo at the end of this month. It should take about 3 months. We are hopeful this will shrink the mass. Please continue to pray for our family, especially for Mike's:
Complete healing (if God chooses to do so)
Minimal side effects from the chemo
Peace of mind
We thank you all for your continued prayers, please keep them coming.

  4. I asked, what if it's not cancer & he said he didn't know what else it could be. First two scrapings didn't go deep enough evidently.
