I was getting a good start on blogging again when all hell broke lose once more!! The new neurologist wants to run: a 24 hour brain scan; a new MRI; hearing and vision tests on me. Mark had emergency back surgery 2 1/2 weeks ago and is looking at permanent nerve damage there in his left lower half of his body. Dad has had one thing after another: the infection in his left testicle is finally getting better but the MRI that they did on his spine last week has now showed, not only the compression of a disc (which they saw in the CAT scan) but also signs of bone cancer. They are ordering more tests to confirm whether or not it is. Beings that 8 out of 9 kids in his family had some form of cancer, the odds are not in his favor. With that being said, he has out lived all of his brothers by about 20+ yrs., so I guess God has blessed us with having his presence in our lives this long. I am not giving up hope and, of course, ask for your prayers. I do know this much, if it is cancer, I would rather let him go now than see him suffer any more pain. He has been through enough of that. Thank you in advance for your prayers and support!! May God’s will be done, Amen and Amen. Much love to you all, Terri

I have not been on here for a few days because I couldn’t talk about what’s been going on in my world yet. This poem will worry some of you, dear friends, but please don’t let it. This is a statement of mindset and NOT of intent. I would ask you to say a few prayers for me, however, for my life to bounce back from my latest crisis quickly. I promise to tell you more very soon, I just can’t get into it quite yet.
With that said, I hope you all had a better holiday than I did and I want to wish you all a safe and very, very Happy New Year!!!
With my love and God’s blessings,
