Catching Up

 I know I have been a blog slacker, but not because I haven't been feeling well, it's actually the opposite. I have been really feeling good and have just been spending as much time with my family as possible. Actually, for a few days, we were cut off from the rest of the world because massive flooding in our area made our tiny town an island of sorts. Thankfully, our house is high enough on a hill and we were spared from the devastating floods that have affected so many in our area. The company Mike works for was hit hard and it's going  to be a long road to getting things back to normal.

Also this past week, we celebrated Madelyn's 6th birthday! The day did not start out so good for her because school was cancelled due to the flood. She was to be the Star Of the Day and she had special cupcakes to share with her class. When she found out school was cancelled, she sobbed for hours! The day turned around for her when we took her to Wal-Mart and bought her a new bike. She was thrilled that we let her ride it all through the store. Sadly, Daddy had to miss her birthday dinner and cake because he had to go in to work to prepare for the flood (a lot of good that did!).
Here she is making her wish. It was to go to school the next day. It didn't come true. They were off for the rest of the week.  :(
 Tomorrow I'll be heading back to the doctor for treatment number 2. I am feeling great and in no way discouraged by the terrible sickness I suffered from my first treatment. I am confident that the new plan to combat my tummy troubles after treatment will work this time. Your continued prayers are much appreciated. Thanks!


  1. So glad you have been feeling good and that the flooding didn't reach your house! My prayers are with you as you head in for your second treatment. Hope it goes well!

    PS-Madelyn looks super cute in that picture!

  2. I do really keep you in my thoughts!
    A friend of mine has just finished kemotherapy and radiation therapy and she really feels a lot better, her hair has grown already, and she looks so good, and feels a lot better!
    So I wish the same for you!
    I really hope your next treatment won't be so bad!
    Best, best wishes!

  3. I'm so happy to hear your feeling pretty good. Good luck with the second treatment. I keep you in my thoughts. :)

  4. Happy Birthday, Madelyn!

    I'm very happy to hear that you are feeling better!


Thanks for visiting! Come back again!
