Default Catching up...

Hi All!

Sorry I haven't been around lately...it's been a hectic few weeks. I wish I could say that was in a good way. I could go into a lot of details, but the highlights (lowlights) are...

  • Both Gabbi's hamsters died within 2 days of each other for no apparent reason.
  • My husband was in the hospital the entire week of Christmas.
  • I found out I have skin cancer...but from what I'm told, it's the kind I would want to have...assuming anyone would want to have cancer of any kind.
Silver lining...
  • We did get to spend New Year's Eve with just a few family and friends which was nice.
  • And my sister is doing very well since her surgery.
  • The three of us have been out of school and off work because of the snow and cold here, so we've been able to spend some time together.
So, I guess the long and short of it is...my family could still use your prayers and positive thoughts. And I'll try to be a bit more visible here on the forum!

Happy New Year All!!
Mel: My monster is Vinny! He's a black lab, diagnosed with diabetes June 21, 2013. His birthdate was celebrated the last weekend of May. He left this world on July 27, 2018, he was 12 years old.

Hoping for a much better 2014 for you and your family. I just recently heard that they have a cure for skin cancer. Hoping that your husband is feeling better, and you are cured.
