Something New!!!!

I have a new blog layout!!! What do you think? You will not believe that this was a freebie from the blog designer "Green Leaves Designs"! I love how it is "SIMPLE" and yet kind of whimsical! Does this not reflect my personality???

I have been on a bit of a blogging hiatus. Family stuff. YUCK!! My mom has been in the hospital for over a week now, actually coming up on 2! Poor thing...they are still not able to release her. The problem is with her gallbladder but due to complications she is not able to have the surgery yet. It really is sad. She has been really sick for the last week!

My big sister Tami who is the most remarkable cancer survivor I know had an MRI come back with something on it. This is not good. Her cancer spread to her lungs and brain once before. We don't like hearing "something" is on her scan! EVER!!!! She is the toughest of tough cookies....but really how much a gal supposed to go through?

To top it all off we made a quick run to the ER to check on my husbands mom. Another remarkable woman I might add. She is in some serious pain. The worst part is that the staff in the ER were unable to find anything "life threateningly" wrong! How lame is that. This is a woman who I have never seen complain of pain, ever!! She gave birth to 10 children, she is no wimp!!! They were not able to run the test they needed to and it looks like with the proper tests this week they may be able to get to the bottom of this!

OK!!! So I am really giving a shout out for some prayers to be thrown our way. Specifically BETTY, TAMI and SANDY !! These women need some extra help!

I have heard bad things happen in "3's"; I hope that means we are done!

Now honestly....isn't my blog so cute????

Your "big sister" was very happy to see you show up at the hospital after my surgery. Taking time out of your family vacation means a lot to me. Thanks for for your love, prayers and support.

And yes, your blog is really cute!
