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.

One Step Forward, Two Steps Back

We went to our Chemo Information meeting today and we are now know more than we ever thought we would about chemotherapy. We were all set to begin chemo tomorrow but got a call tonight that they were going to cancel chemo for tomorrow. Mike's bilirubin is still too high. The chemo won't work if it's too high. So we are back to square one. We thought the drainage tubes would work faster than they are. I guess we can't get in a hurry. We are thankful that they didn't let us get to the appointment and then tell us this. So we are a little frustrated and uncertain at this time as to what's next. I'm hoping we get some direction tomorrow. Please pray for:
Bilirubin levels to go down
Drainage tubes to be working correctly
Mike's pain & fatigue
We appreciate all the calls and texts and prayers for Mike. God's got this!!


  1. Praying for Mike's pain and fatigue to decrease; for his bilirubin to go to normal; and the chemo to kick this out with GOD'S HEALING TOUCH!!! GOD does have this!!! We love y'all so much!!!

  2. praying hard for everything to get to normal...love you guys!!!
