Hello. Got back last night from B2B on the Freedom out of Cape Canaveral. Had a great time(loosely interpreted that the casino was good to me both weeks). I, too, want to hear about your trip Sandy. I can imagine you were glad to be home. You were practically gone about 6 weeks with a few days at home in between.

Have we abandoned this website?

Happy weekend everyone. Hope everyone has great plans. We are going to Scott's house tonight to celebrate Sydney's 16th birthday. I am bringing crock pot mac and cheese. She has requested ribs for dinner. If I haven't told you before, my son is the greatest cook. His ribs and wings are better than any we have tasted before. He uses a Primo ceramic grill/smoker similar to the Green Egg.

Sydney is one of the young ladies staing with him. Her mom is now divorced but custody has been postponned until a hearing in November. They were just out to California for spring break to visit with the psychiatrist for what was called a move away evaluation. They came out shining whereas the dad was found to be narcisisstic, depressive and something else. Hopefully, things will go well in Elizabeth's favor. So far, everything has.

Russ's shoulder replacement is set for Monday, April 30. He joined weight watchers with me last week and lost 4 pounds his first week. He had already been dieting since we got back from our cruise so we were pleased with the results. I continue to be at WW's/doctor's goal for me. Great, heathy, easy to follow lifestyle for us.

Sherry has been absent of late. I caught her on FB tonight and asked why she has been hiding. This is her reply. We need to send prayers her way.

7:49pm
No, I have just been working myself crazy. By the time I get home I am so tired. Then I try to go to bed and can't sleep. Really really tired. Trying to get some things done at the house....How are you?Daddy had hernia surgery a few weeks ago. Mark's Mom stopped eating and has a urinary tract infection. Jim, Mark's brother picked her up on Saturday and took her to the Doctor on Monday and they put her in the hospital. Her heart is only working 20% and she is on oxygen and in CCU

Hi All,

Sorry I have been MIA, but lots of things going on. Thanks for asking Shirley and posting for me. Daddy is doing well with his surgery, still sore, but making progress. Mark's Mom however is a different story. She will not be able to live alone anymore so that means a nursing or assisted living home. She has stopped eating, has a urinary tract infection, her Heart rate is elevated and her blood pressure is too low. Her heart is only at 20% so she is not getting enough oxygen and is now on oxygen 24/7.

Will keep you posted and please pray for her and the family.

Russ came home today. For being such a complicated surgery, it sure made it look easy. He has had some discomfort but not much else. He is in for a long road of rehab, however. Doesn't rehab as fast as knees and hips.

I am booking two cruises this week for 2013. One will be in January on the Celebrity Constellation. It is a chartered cruise put on by Sixthman. It is a TCM (Turner Classic Movie) theme cruise. There will be movies shown throughout the cruise with critics, directors and actors on board discussing the movies. This is something Russ wants to do. We are also booking a river cruise in Europe. We have settled on the route (Budapest to Amsterdam). We have not decided on using Uniworld or Tauck or which month we want to do it. It will probably be May or September. These are the best months for cruising the rivers.

Good Morning All,

Wow Shirley, those both sound like fun cruises. I have some friends that have done the river cruises and just loved them. Glad Russ is doing well after his surgery.

Mark's Mom is not doing too good. Her heart failure is getting worse and her legs are leaking. Big water blisters on them from the fluid build up. They put her on Lasik to try to get rid of some of the water, but it has not worked so far. She can't continue her therapy because her legs are so swollen. They are going to have her evaluated for hospice. Marcy said it could be days, weeks or maybe months, but maybe more like days if the fluid can't be removed. Just pray for his family if you would. Marge will be 91 on May 29th. She has had a long and full life with lots of great memories.

Love you guys,
S

OK guys. Time to plan a reunion cruise for 2013. We've already got 2 booked (Jan and May). We have left the fall open for those of you who work to pick a time. Now that Sandy is studying to be a travel agent, we could give her the bookings. What ya' think?
