Was a good year till July 2011!

In July I found quite by accident that I had a tumor in my right lung and if I did not get it taken care of I would be dead by the end of the year!  The tumor turned out to be Small Cell Carcinoma (limited) to the right lung.  It can not be operated on because it will just show up somewhere else in the body.  I have had my three rounds of Chemo and my two rounds of Radiation.  I wait now for three months at a time and then go back to have a cat scan to make sure it has not spread.  It likes to hide in the body and well they just don't have the equipment today to actually find it but I know soon they will with the way technology is today it won't be long.

When I say I found out quite by accident I did....I went to the ER under the impression that I had "food poisoning!"  I h ad bought some almonds from "Sam's Club"  and I was eating then when all of a sudden I become deathly ill, stomach pains like you wouldn't believe, vomiting, it was terrible....well I don't go to the Dr.'s so I let it work it's way through me.  Well like an idiot I ate more the next day...and the same thing happened....Alright of to the ER I go....I am really sick....never felt like this before ever!  

I was in the ER for six hours, the one man came in and said, we think you have pneumonia so we are going to take a cat scan of your chest.  The stomach pains had gone away.  An hour later the man came in and said to me, you have a tumor in your lung and the size of it has collasped your right upper lung by the airways.  You will need a biopsy done right away.  Needless to say I had to think about all of this...I told the man I was going home, I had three grandchildren circling the parking lot with my husband as the driver because it was 1'o'clock in the morning.  I had custody of all three of my grandchildren.....I needed to go home and think this through.  Which of course I did but agaisnt the Doctors wishes.  

It has been not the best year, but it hasn't been the worst either.  I am doing all right so far.  Only time will tell....this is all in God's hands now.

WOW...It's been awhile....since I posted here!!!

Wanted to take a moment and wish Chris, Jenny, Jill, Lil Chris & Zachary a Happy Birthday again....seems like the years are just a rollin on by....don't know where they are going!!!


I noticed that I forgot to wish everyone a Happy 4th of July!!!   That was a big OOOPS...well if you know me you know it was just that...oooops.....the 4th was really good except for the neighbor boys who thought that they had to put on their own Fourth of July Spectacular....which most of it fell around the car, pond, dog, houses, nothing like a gigantic "Bondfire" to go with your celebration...No nothing caught on fire....but it could have!!!!  We have a park like setting just down the street from us and they could have used their aspiration for pyromania down there....Hope everyone reading this had a Happy & Safe 4th!!!!


Wanted to get some exciting news out.....We are going to be "Grandparents" again....Chris and his fiance Jenny are expecting and Jennifer and her husband Tom are expecting...and I beleive the girls are just weeks apart in their pregnancys....Isn't that AWESOME!!!!


I looked at my statistics and I see that there have been over 3,ooo hits between July and August....yet not too many are dropping a line....Please do even if it to just say "Hello!"

Many things to do today and must really get them done...so for know Take care and God Bless!

Need A Laugh?

Hello Again...

Please join me in remembering a great icon of the entertainment community.

The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection and trauma complications from repeated pokes in the belly.  He was 71.  Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin.  Dozens of celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry Jack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, and Captain Crunch.  The grave site was piled high with flours.

Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy and lovingly described Doughboy as a man who never knew how much he was kneaded.  Doughboy rose quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers.  He was not considered a very smart cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-baked schemes. Despite being a little flaky at times he still was a crusty old man and was considered a positive roll model for millions.

Doughboy is survived by his wife Play Dough, two children, John Dough and Jane Dough, plus they had one in the oven.  He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart.  The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.

If this made you smile for even a brief second, please rise to the occasion and take time to pass it on and share that smile with someone else who may be having a crumby day and kneads it!
