Dear Friends

Our road was nice and fairly smooth and enjoyable, until a couple of weeks ago.

Going to the ER at 6am with side pain, we all thought it was just something simple as appendicitis. But when I came back to my room after surgery that afternoon, I was met by my family with faces on that I had never seen on them before. Then they told me. They found Colon Cancer while in there. Life as we knew it suddenly stopped. Now our goal is to fight this evil disease with God's help and guidance. We are a family of Faith in God.


As of today, I'm home resting up for next week's round, of a Colonoscopy, the medi port and chemo treatments to begin. My Dr.'s for this task are A-ONE and Top Notch in Dallas, I feel safe with them and trust them completely.

As Paper Cowgirl goes, I want Cindy to carry on and you all have your PC fun. I'll be there but not in person, I'm sure. But know in my heart I will feel all your fun and creatiative.

For all the comments, I have felt your uplifting, your prayers and your love. They are keeping me sane in unsane time of my life. Thank you.

Facebook right now is our mode of updates. Hub updates when he can on there. So you may not see me too much here in the next few weeks. I do thank you for all your support and love.

Take care and God Bless,
tina

Well Tina, as i discovered your blog a few weeks ago, you don't know me as a great blogger, but, be sure that all my thought and prayers are for you now and forever.

All the words i can tell have less importance now, but let me tell you that your creations are so beautiful and inventive, that they make my day. Thank you for that.

With love.

All I can say is thank god for that emergency surgery! A higher hand lowers itself to earth now and then, and it sounds like someone wanted to get a message through. Take care and all my best wishes and thoughts.
