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.

Emory Results

We made it to our scheduled appointments at Emory today. The MRI went off without a hitch. Praise The Lord! We then met with the surgeon. He told us that there was no way they could operate since the cancer involved the bile ducts and was inside the liver. However, they do have a PROTOCOL that would involve a team of specialists agreeing to take Mike on as a patient, do chemo and radiation and then do a liver transplant. The surgeon seems to think  this might be Mike's best option. He will present  Mike's case on Friday. We should hear from him Friday or Monday at the latest. So our specific prayer requests are:
The bilirubin count continues to drop
The team approves Mike to be a patient
Mike's spirits
If he is approved, we need to pray the chemo and radiation work and he finds a viable liver.
That is a hard prayer to pray because it involves someone losing someone.
We just have to continue to trust God and know that He has Mike in His hands. Again we thank you for your thoughts and prayers. Until we have more news.


  1. Praying for the both of you! We love you!

  2. This sounds positive to me! Maybe this is where he was suppose to end up. Everything happening the way it has so he gets to this hospital with these doctors. Continuing to pray!

  3. Sounds like a good team of doctors. Praying for your specific requests. Love you!

  4. Keeping you all in our prayers! (Additional prayers for appetite and energy!) Much love to you all

  5. Praying that the doctors device in your favor. Sounds like a great team working on your side.
