My lesson plans aren’t ready. I had 4 days off, but my lesson plans aren’t done. I promise they’ll be done soon. I didn’t post them last week, because I was a bit busy and had a lot on my mind (obviously my blog has suffered!)
My dad has been battling some stomach issues over the past 6 months or so. He has been in and out of the hospital dealing with medical issues since about last March. It’s been tough.
He was recently diagnosed with bile duct cancer. If you read anything about bile duct cancer, it’s not good. At all. Two weeks ago, he travelled for the second time to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN and the doctor’s there did their thing.
I have the utmost respect for the doctor’s at the Mayo Clinic. Six years ago they saved my mom’s life when she was granted a new liver. Two week’s ago they did the same for my dad. I believe he is one of the lucky ones – the cancer was caught early and contained. He’s not out of the woods yet though, he will travel back in 3 weeks for further testing just to make sure…
While we were driving the 6 1/2 hour road trip, this song came on (take a minute and listen, you won’t regret it).
If you know me, you will know that I’m a worrier. I worry about everything. When this song came on the radio – I knew that everything was going to be okay. *sigh*
Last Tuesday was Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. I lit my candle for my sweet Nora, and all the other babies that left this Earth too soon.
and then this fell this morning….
Really? Thankfully the snow melted pretty quickly, but it’s just a remind that winter is not far away.
But, here’s what makes me smile… Our final roses of the season from my Nora’s rose garden. Her rose garden gives us beautiful roses all summer long.
So, I’ll be back at it this week, I promise. Because..
