Jim's seizure surgery

Tuesday, the 28th, in just a few days, Jim is going in for the first of two brain surgeries. He has already had 4 brain tumor related surgeries so we know what's it's like. Almost 3 years ago he started having seizures. He has multiple seizures daily. They think the seizures are coming from 2 different places in his brain. We've been trying different seizure meds and nothing has worked.

On Tuesday they’ll open his head and place a "grid" directly on his brain to monitor and find out exactly where the seizures are coming from and what other functions his brain does in those places. they will leave him in the hospital and monitor him for a week. On the second surgery scheduled for March 6th, they’ll take out the grid and hopefully remove the seizure causing brain tissue.

We will be fasting and praying this Sunday the 26th for Jim. You’re welcome to participate.

It was Valentines Day yesterday, I LOVE Valentines Day, I mean how can you go wrong with a holiday that celebrates love! Not just romantic love but, I like to show love for everyone. I like to stretch it out as long as possible. On Valentines Day we make it all about our family, and other loved ones. I spent the day making valentines for my family. We did our "traditional" Fancy valentines dinner with the kids: a candlelight steak dinner at home with all the trimmings, chocolate dipped strawberries, homemade valentines and heart-shaped boxes of chocolates for everyone! My husband gave me some yummy brown leather boots, (how did he know) and some heart covered socks to go with them. We went for a moonlit walk. I'm looking forward to Friday when my sweetie husband will take me out for a nice romantic dinner.

My shy little boy.

My 14 year-old had the warts burned off the bottom his size 14 foot. First he wrote smiley faces and notes to the doctor on the bottom of his foot. Then he “stole” a pair of blue doctors gloves and wore them out of the doctors office holding his hands up like a doctor trying not to touch anything. He was getting so many strange looks from people and he was embarrassing me, and no: he wasn't on any medication.

He is the kid I think of as shy.

today is a gift

Do you ever wake up in the morning with that Christmas Morning feeling? You know that feeling of anticipation for some wonderful surprise that lies in store for you that day that's the feeling that I had this morning. Not that I thought that I was going to receive a gift today but, that today is a gift. It will be full of surprises and possibilities it can be a good day or a bad day it is all up to me to decide and make it the kind of day I want it to be.
