Well I know it has been quite some time since I have posted on my blog & I am very sorry about that. I have had several health issues & unfortunately still not better. I went for an MRI today for my back & after an hour of being in this tube & half way thru the test, the tech told me that they had to stop, because it was a waste of time to finish. Since I have so much hardware in my back from my 2 surgeries from over a year ago, they couldn't get any clear pics due to the hardware in the way. Yet when I had a cat scan before Christmas, it showed that on both sides of my lower spine that there were faulty screws, basically what the doc says is that I have screws loose LOL. But because of this problem I have been in terrific pain that has made me so sick, that I'm a mess. The way it sounds to me that I will be going back into the hospital for another surgery.
My son Steven is freaking out, because he is getting married in Sept. 2011 & wants me to be able to dance at his wedding. See the last 2 surgeries I had I was in the hospital for a month & then rehab for over 2 weeks & I was down for about a year. I'm hoping that this is done real soon.

Tomorrow morning I go for a series of tests to see if I am still cancer free. I have this lump on my left rib that has given me a lot of pain & I have been breaking out into sweats for a few months now. I pray that everything is OK & I am just going thru mental pause LOL again, because I will be cancer free in Feb. for 5 years if everything is good. I hope that you will pray for me, I will greatly appreciate it.

To top it off, my DH & I recently found out that his dad has stage 4 cancer & is terminal. We have been running back & forth to the hospital which is an hour away from us, he was suppose to come home today, but haven't heard anything yet. I hope that you will all pray for my FIL Bob too. Thank you.

I am so sorry that I have depressed  everybody, but this is what has been going on in my life since my last post, months ago. I am hoping that 2011 will bring me better health & happiness.

I will try to post more often & after the New Year starts, I hope to get back into my crafting.

I hope that you haven't given up on me & my blog & that I will hear from Y'all.
I haven't forgotten all my followers, my friends from ACM & my very good friends & followers Marie & Terrie. I am so sorry that I haven't emailed you, I just haven't been up to writing & I have been hardly if not at all on my computer. I miss you & love you.

I hope Y'all have a wonderful, safe & Happy New Year.

If I don't post again this year, then I will be back in the New Year with, I really hope good news & also some wonderful new craft ideas.

May you have a Wonderful & Blessed Day.
