No, Tish.....not alone....I am here, lurking as always!!! LOL

Soooooo...I missed an entire month of everyone's life....Betsey gave me a condensed recap that has me mostly caught up....but, for one thing....what kind of surgery did Ron have, and what were the complications??? All I had to do was read NG Tube and I got woozy!!! Been there, done that, twice in my life.......NEVER want to go there again!!

As for self-sufficiency.......My husband was an over-the-road trucker for 35+ years......I had 3 kids, a house on 2 city lots, vehicles, pets, bills....and was, for all intents and purposes, a single mother....so.....I know only too well about doing it all. I was always soooooooo envious of my friends who had husbands who actually parented and participated in day-to-day life!! My sons are those kinds of husbands/fathers....and it makes me very proud of them. They certainly did not have that modeled for them growing up...at least not by their dad. Ahhhhhh....enough whining....... LOL

So, the challenge is to scrap about


FRIENDSHIP

Let's see some journaling! What does friendship mean to you? Who has picked you up, time after time after time, or handed you that football helmet when they found you banging your head against the wall? Who has taken the shotgun out of your hands and hidden the shells from you? LOL

You have two weeks to complete this challenge, and the prize is the satisfaction of knowing you scrapped, lol!

And, what good is a challenge, if there's not a twist, right? The twist is this (optional, of course)....somewhere on the layout I want a yard gnome, lol! Hidden, "yard gnome" spelled out, whatever!

Hey...at least it's not a chainsaw!

I'm BACK --- lord how I love to shop --- NOT!!! AND while I was gone my work came in so I don't get to help rearrange the furniture in the new place or hang the curtains :+) DARN!!!!! And yes Betsey -- add this to your favorites --- I had to put the word "thread" on the end of Rockin' Scrapping Grams so it wasn't the same name as the other. You might as well erase the other just so you don't get confused

HI HI HI HI --- ok -- I'll tell you about Ron and you tell me about YOU!!! I know they found a tumor, large with you -- benign thank God --- where was it, and how long were you in the hospital? Are you working yet or not???

I will make no smart a remarks about people who can't handle NG tubes as I've NEVER had one and God will get me good when/if I ever need one -- but ******** (the surgeon, my client, a friend) who worked on Ron said -- after I asked -- that he had never had a patient in 40 years who had such a time with an NG tube. Maybe you and Ron can compare stories --- I mean it nearly drove him nuts -- well actually it DID -0- he called me a MIDNIGHT one night wanting me to call ******** at HOME to TEL

continued --- to TELL him (********) to get up to the hospital and take that tube out --- RIGHT and while I'm at it I'll have a talk with God about how he should straighten out the world.

NOW what IS it with this sb.com -- does it think it's become Twitter? That's TWICE it's cut me off --- only 140 characters or some such thing? Or it's just being stubborn?

Anyway Pam -- Ron had a subtotal colectomy ... so nearly all of his bowel was taken out -- left enuf so he wouldn't have to have a colostomy. He had polyposis on his last colonoscopy and while those aren't really termed PREcancerous, there as close as you can get without being there. PLUS he had one precancerous lesion (tubulovillous adenoma) --- so he (Ron) immediately said "take it out" -- which IS the smart thing to do but so few people accept the idea. Then the NG tube was the culprit in him remaining in the hospital for a second week --- after they pulled it, he got sick -- so had to have it put down a second time and pump for a few days.

AND I did not bi*ch or anything around Ron or ******** or the nurses --- acted like the sweet gentle loving wife, GLAD to be doing everything of mine AND Ron's --- but I have a strength-o-meter I'm going to be secretly using on him and as he gets stronger, the household duties shift REALLY fast :+)

GADS it let me use more than 140 characters!!!!! OK I gotta go type

PERSONALLY THIS SCARES THE BEJEEZUS OUT OF ME BECAUSE I WAS THINKING THE EXACT SAME THING WHILE WANDERING AROUND WALLY WORLD -- it's time we had a challenge I had not, however, come up with a topic ---- VERY good topic Lori --- and two weeks so we have until -- what day is this? the 27th to get it done? I think that's right. And as we get 'em done (as Larry the CG would say) make sure you allow me to get into them so I can put them all up at the top ---

Hi ho hi ho it's off to work I go --- trust me I'm not whistling or dancing!!

Ah ha....you are all here! Hello, hello. I watched a bit of CNN and then took a nap with the cats! What an exciting day I have had thus far with hubby gone. He just called to tell me that he and his friend arrived and checked in and he will call me back tonight.

Pam I do think my husband was from the "old school" Was not ever really what I would call a hands on dad when the kids were growing up. He was a good dad, but wasn't what a call a hands on dad.( didn't do diaper duty etc) My son's on the other hand, they are wonderful and have always been hands on....Perhaps it is just the times, I don't know! Anyway, sigh....

So good to see you lurking and stopping in...
