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.

Happy Valentines Day

We have had a wonderful few days. Mike had his first chemo appointment on Friday. He has had no side effects yet except for hiccups. He has been more active the last couple of days. Our daughter & grandsons visited yesterday & today he went to church. I think it really lifted his spirits.  He hasn't been able to attend in several weeks.
His brother & his wife came for lunch today. His appetite seems to be increasing.  I am so thankful for small things like an appetite and energy and hope. We appreciate all of your prayers.
Mike has decided against going to Cancer Centers of America for now. Maybe later he,said but we are going forward with treatments in Rome as originally planned. His pet scan came back with no cancer anywhere else in his body and we are so grateful for this news. Hopefully he will continue to improve. Specific prayer requests:
Bilirubin levels to drop
Chemo and radiation will work on mass
Hiccups to go away
Until next time

I love this man with all my heart!!


  1. I am so glad to hear such improvements in spirits, energy and appetite! Praise God for no other cancer! Know spending time with family and in church made him feel good. Continuing to pray.... Love and miss ya'll
