I took sissy to the dentist yesterday and she wanted to know what was going on in the "real world". It had been 9-10 days since she had been out of the house, other than my house. I told her nothing was really happening and then she said something that blew me away. "I need to blog because I don't want people to think I'm not grateful and then have them stop praying for me." I laughed at her and told her there was no way that was going to happen! She's so wiped out that she hasn't turned on her computer in, well, a long time, since the last time she blogged. I told her that I'm keeping all of you up to date on how she's doing (or not, as the case may be). So, just to ease her mind, please know that sissy is VERY grateful for ALL of you and hopes you keep praying for her.
Today is a little different than our last 4th of July. It's a bit more quiet, not so celebratory. Sissy's home sick in bed. She's thrown up twice today but isn't that nauseated. Asa has a sore left leg. The kids were in their pool yesterday, jumping in and out of it, landing on their knees, etc... and we think Asa may have hurt his leg while doing that. When he woke up this morning his knee started hurting. When he first got to my house this morning he couldn't even walk on it. It's a bit better now but still can't do a whole lot. Oh, he just informed me "maybe it will feel better now" and he's walking, testing it out. The verdict is that he can walk on it, but not run. Oh boy, what is a soccer start to do?!
PLEASE check out Aviana's blog (on my right sidebar) to see the news they got from her MRI.
We're tentatively planning on having dinner here tonight, but might have to move it over to sissy's if she can't make it over here. The weather has been HOT here, mid 90's for the past few days so the pool is nice. I might make the inaugural plunge today. 4th of July weekend is usually the first time we use it. We'll see.
We are so blessed right now. We have two beautiful miracle children. My parents are healthy and I'm so lucky to have them close by. We have a home to live in. Sissy has a home to rest in and such a hard working husband who dotes on and adores her. We have such a big, loving family, both physically and cyber :) Really, other than this fucking cancer, life is really special and blessed. We are all so fortunate.
Oops! Just before I hit the "publish" button, sissy called. She sounds great. She plans on making it over. She said she feels good, just having a bit of a gastrointestinal problem, if you catch my drift. See? So much to be thankful for!
