A brief update, family style…

It’s been awhile since I’ve shared what’s going on with my family situation, and there’s been quite a bit of news.

First, and best, Grandma Carol is doing much better!  She is out of the hospital and into a rehab center, which we are so happy about.  Doctors and nurses have literally referred to her as a miracle—we were so close to losing her, and not only is she alive and well, she doesn’t even have to have daily dialysis as they’d once feared.  It is a huge miracle, and we are so blessed.  I am so happy and grateful.

As for my dad, he will begin chemo and radiation next week.  It has been a rollercoaster as they’ve tried to figure out what treatment option is best for him, but it’s been decided that this is the best one.  Obviously, we are nervous and scared, but we’ve also been assured that this is very treatable and curable.  Please, please, please continue to keep him in your thoughts and prayers as we start the next phase of this journey.

On a more cheerful note, it’s the weekend!  After a long, long, long week, I could not be more excited to not work, and this weekend is extra exciting thanks to the Blathering!  I am looking forward to wine, shopping and lots of laughing!

I doubt I’ll be around here much this weekend, so happy trails and I’ll catch you on Monday!
