Our Destin vacation...

We went to Destin last Thursday and came back on Sunday. It pretty much rained the whole time. Everytime I got down to the beach, it would start raining and storming. The kids did get to play a little in the waves a couple of times. The boys all went digging for sand crabs at night which was fun for them.
I love playing with Cayden and Shelby. Shelby stuck to me like velcro, and was constantly saying "My Mimi".
We had a good time and some good food, but we just wish the sun had come out a while.

One year ago - home from the hospital...

Some things you just never forget. I was released from my 12 day hospital stay one year ago today.
I can remember so vividly coming out of the hospital, and the sun hitting me in the face. Even though it was quite warm, it felt so good. A breeze was blowing, and I just wanted to sit there and soak it up.
I started crying and cried nearly all of the way home. Such a relief to be going home.
I thought about people in prisons that will never have that feeling again, and how could anyone want to miss out on the wonderful things in life by committing the crimes that put them there in the first place.
Life puzzles me. People puzzle me, and there are so many things that people do that I just don't understand.
I do know one thing -. I am glad to be where I am and with my wonderful family celebrating life.

One year post surgery checkup...

I went today for my one year checkup. My doctors thought everything looked fine. That's a big relief. I had bloodwork done, and they told me "no news was good news." I go back in 3 months. Dr. Kim likes his patients to come back 4 times a year, and I sure don't have a problem with that.

Please pray for Cody. He found out today that he has Bell's Palsy. He is pretty miserable.

Thanks for all of your prayers.

One year ago today - May 7, 2008

In some ways I can't believe it's been a year since my surgery. In other ways, it seems like yesterday.

When I started thinking about my one year anniversary coming up a couple of weeks ago, I just got weak all over. How in the world did I endure such an ordeal? One thing is for sure. ONLY by the grace of GOD!

Clay even said he didn't know how he made it either having to wait 12 long hours in the waiting room for them to finish. Then 6 days in ICU and 6 more days in the hospital. I know it was hard for him and for my kids. Thank goodness I had them to depend on, and thank God for Robin who stayed with me in the hospital and did all of my medical care after I came home.

Please keep me in your prayers. I go back May 12 for my check up with lab work. I don't foresee any problems, but it always makes me nervous.

Thanks to those of you who have continued to read my updates from time to time. I have enjoyed my retirement immensely. I am still facing another surgery in June to repair my rotator cuff, but my shoulder doctor said that is nothing compared to what I had done last May.

Hugs to all,
