The Girls Are Good

I had a wonderful visit with Megan and Alanna. How could I not? They were both thrilled to see me and we had a fun time cooking, spending Easter together, having a hunt and dinner for the kids and all the girls whose husbands have left for Afghanistan. In addition we went shopping, went to see Horton Hears a Who (FABU movie by the way-----so wonderfully done!) and I spent lots of time potty training.

The trip is always an adventure, but for the most part I have met really cool people on the flights, and I know how to take good care of myself on long layovers. I feel like quite the world traveler, considering once I had a travel phobia.

Megan is having some problems with too many Braxton Hicks, and her cervix appears to be thinning out. Thankfully, she goes to a specialist in Nashville every week who is paying close attention to her situation. They are not suturing her cervix yet, but that may come.

I am entering two pieces in an art show hosted by an Oncology Group in our city. I want to support them as they treated Megan with the most amazing grace and caring. I will post pics at a later time.

Heading South

I have my ticket and am heading to see my girls for Easter. Dole has left, Megan is very sad, so Ms. Mary Poppins will make a visit and try to sooth and bring joy to their lives.

I am looking forward to warmer weather weather there, and praying that no tornado alarms sound. I am not liking the dangers of that part of the country. It makes my studio flood look like a sneeze vs. the flu.

I promise I will take lots of pictures, and am sure I will have some stories to tell.

Megs has a visit with the oncologist next month just to touch base. So far her blood has been normal, and her cholesterol and blood pressure super low.

Remember my friends...each day of life is a gift.

That is a lesson I learned this past year.

More after I get back!
