Sorry for so few posts lately.  I find it difficult to blog because trying to stay in the moment uses all my energy and when I blog I find myself whirling with "what-ifs".  While Lisa looks great and is doing remarkably well given our scare a few weeks ago, I feel like I'm holding my breath and am just waiting for the other shoe to drop.  Docs were able to determine that the radiation seems to have shrunk the tumor in her brain but they would like to see an MRI of her spine in 2 weeks when she does all of her other scans.'s not so much what the docs have said that makes me uneasy, it's what's not being said and the "looking" and "waiting".

How dreary of a post....this is why I haven't blogged lately!  Switching modes....HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!

When I woke this morning I started thinking about what I'm thankful for:
  • a wonderful husband,
  • 4 kids who today are all happy, laughing and not in the hospital,
  • great family and friends
  • food, clothes and a more then 1 roof for over our heads
Today is a day of thanks and no plans.  We are spending it at the lakehouse watching football, eating lots of food, and enjoying our family.

Hope you all have a wonderful turkey day as you count your blessings.

Gobble! Gobble!
