Good morning!

Lisa, I relate. Sometimes I get so tired of being on the computer too. From time to time, I take computer free weekends. While I get tired of being on the computer, I really don't want to drop out of any of my forums either.

I hope to get some layouts finished this weekend. Have two in the works and photos for two more ordered that I need to pick up at Sam's on my next trip. Dd is visiting this week so I'm not getting a lot done. We are going hiking after work if the weather cooperates.

Have a great day ladies!

BTW--Lisa...I tried the tag challenge, but failed terribly!! I just don't have the knack for it!! Your's looks amazing, as always!!




Ditto.... We may need to plan a trip to here area for one of the classes she teaches.

Shatema and I kicked around an idea of doing a text message critique group. Kinda the same thing as here scrap chat and if your debating something on a layout, need mojo or an idea you can share it and if someone's free to text back they do. I know I'll arrange a page without gluing it and snap a picture and rearrange to see what I like best. We could do stuff like that and everyone could sound off on what they think.


I really like that idea. I currently take pictures while in progress and email to a friend , but it would be great to get other input

My future son in law has surgery to remove a tumor around his heart on Friday in Houston and after more xrays today they have decided that they are going to crack his chest open. He's in a bit of a spiral at the moment. Please keep him in your prayers.
his name is Cody Solomon, he is 24 yrs old. He survived testicular cancer, having his all lymph nodes removed, and cancer scraped off his organs 4 yrs ago and now this.
The tumor is like a hand wrapped around his heart. They had planned to go in from his side until taking more detailed xrays today.
My daughter just started a new job and was unable to go with him and he's not handling her not being there. His mom is with him.

Thank you for all your prayers. Surgery was successful. They were able to scrape all the tendrils from around his heart without having to stop his heart. And he is cancer free. He will be in ICU for the night. Before his surgery they gave him a teddy bear named 'Sir Coughs Alot' to hug when he coughs to keep the pressure on his chest to a minimum. Told my daughter when he's done with him he will be hers. They had to pierce his vocal chords so she won't be hearing his voice for quite some time.

His temp has dropped and They are in the process of giving him two pints of blood. They say this is normal. I say there is nothing normal about this whole situation. :-)

Cody was released this afternoon, but is staying in a hotel near the hospital tonight as a precaution. They will be heading back to Abilene in the morning. Please keep him in hour prayers as it is at least an 8hr drive in a PT Cruiser. Not the most comfortable trip. Bekka can't wait to see him.

Thursday is heart surgery #2 for our family. My 80 yr old stepdad (Doug) is having his Aorta valve replaced. He is lucky as they don't have to crack his chest to do it, they are going through his right breast. Modern technology.

Thank you for all your prayers. Doug's surgery went well. He is still incoherent and in a lot of pain. They are keeping him in the ICU tonight. Said the next 24 hrs is crucial. At 80 yrs old they aren't taking any chances.

Doug had a rough go last night just trying to shake the anaesthesia. He's in a severe amount of pain. The nurse got him to eat some yogurt this morning which he usually hates. Mom figured out if you dope him up you can get him to eat things he won't normally touch. LOL

We is been forever since I've been around here. I just got caught in a mountain of work and running my boys around can really cramp a girls time.

Pam I'm just sitting here amazed at all this going on in your life. While I have been under a tremendous amount of stress lately I just think how blessed and precious the gifts we do ave are. Thank you for that amazing reminder it's like a gift you were able to share with all of us.

Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers for our guys.
Doug got to go home last night and take his first shower in a 5 days and sleep in his own bed. He was very happy even though the shower wore him out.

Cody is doing good. Found out that his surgery included taking tumors off his vocal chords and all internal organs in his chest cavity. The doctor says he is now tumor free. Most of the tumors they removed were killed with radiation a couple years ago but if not removed they could reactivate like the one on his heart did. His main concern is regaining his voice.

Getting ready to introduce a new puppy to the cats. Monday we get a boxer mix pup. We had to put our beloved Nikki to sleep in Jan after 14 yrs. After 23 yrs of marriage I decided to let my hubby choose a pet (LOL) and he chose Lucky. A boxer- catahoula mix. Nikki was my cats momma so this should be interesting.

Doug ended up in the ER last night as a blood thinner they had put them on after his surgery kept thining his blood after they took him off of it. They admitted him into ICU last night to try and stop the bleeding.

Hello ladies, here is an update on Doug....
My step dad was admitted back into the ICU this week and they are going into his bladder tonight to see why he's bleeding. They put him on blood thinners for a couple of days after his heart surgery 2 weeks ago and his blood kept thinning after they stopped the meds. Please keep him and my mom in your prayers. Thank you

Another prayer request.......
My son was deployed again today for a destination unknown. He just got back after 6 months in June and now he's gone for another 6 months. Please keep him and his family in your prayers. This will be the second Christmas in a row that he will miss spending with his babies. Thank you

Update on Doug.......They were able to flush all the clots out and discovered that his prostate is enlarged. They took a biopsy, they have to wait a week for the results. If it comes back possitive he doesn't want to persue treatment as being 80 yrs old it is a very rough road. And he's gone through so much these past 2 weeks.

Well, my stepdad is home from the hospital for the third and hopefully final time. He does not have prostrate cancer. Everything is finally looking good for him. Maybe now my mom and him can get some rest. thank you for all your prayers.
Cody left this morning to go back to Houston for his follow up on is open heart surgery and to see if they can do anything for his vocal chords. The poor boy can only whisper and sounds like Christian Bale in the Batman movies.
