On Wednesday morning at 3:30AM my family received the sad news of my FILs passing. He was terminal with stage 4 cancer which hit him very quickly. On December 4th, 2010 he was told about the cancer & here it is a little over one month later & now gone. We all know that he is in better place, which makes us happy, but the hard part is missing & knowing that we will not see him again in this life.
When I went to see my FIL for the last time, I whispered in his ear how much I loved him & that I was glad that  he has been my dad for the past 26 years, my dad past away when I was 19, so I am hoping that he was aware enough to understand what I had said to him.
My FIL always treated me nice, we always got along & had happy times together.
My son Steven took his baby boy Derek to the hospital, when Tom & I went this past Saturday to see my FIL. He knew that Derek was there & talked to the baby. See, Derek is the fourth generation of men on Toms side. I will be including a pic of Tom & his Dad spring 2009 in our yard & the other pic is of my FIL in the hospital a few weeks ago with Tom, Steven & Derek, the 4 generations. I am so glad that I got this pic of them together.


Soon, I should be posting a new craft idea, cause I have been trying to work on something. It's been very difficult with all that has been going on.
So, please keep checking back.

Hello to all my friends,
I just wanted to update on what has been going on in my life. Tomorrow morning I am going for a Pulmonary test for my breathing, since I have had a terrible time over the past several months & not being able to afford my meds.
Then Friday afternoon I go to see my Oncologest for the results on all my tests, to make sure that no cancer has returned. Prayers please for me. Thank you.
I still do not know when I am having my back surgery again to fix my loose screw & the other issue with the rods. I am sure not looking forward to that again.
I still haven't done any crafts, because of all the pain I've been in & family issues going on. I just haven't been in the mood yet.
My FIL was takened to the ER again a couple of days ago & was admitted. He now has pneumonia on top of having terminal cancer. More prayers please.
I really would love to have good news in my life, instead of always sad.
One good thing of the day, my oldest son turned 30 years old today. It seems like he was just 3 years old, but now 30, with a family of his own. Where has the time gone? Too fast I think. Boy, I am getting old, LOL.

I would really like to hear from everybody to let me know, if there is any good news in your lives. Or if you are dealing with sad news & would like to share, I'm hear to listen.
Keep checking back & hoping that I will be sharing good news with you.
Please Lord Bless my family & all my dear friends with good health & happiness.

Hope you had a Wonderful & Blessed Day.
