Bump in the road

     We came home today from  the hospital AGAIN.  This time the patient was my husband, Norm.  After some testing, it was discovered he had diverticulosis.  He also had another polyp that they are testing but the surgeon felt  it was normal.  We won't know that for a few weeks.  We came home this afternoon.  Glad to be home again!  I am hoping the rest of the year is QUIET!

     This weekend is our Ladies Conference at our church.  I've been looking forward to it.  They are even having a Lock-in type thing.  
     We were also saddened to have another family issue in my family regarding marriage.  I do not want to mention them by name but I hope you can keep them in your prayers both for them as well as for us as we have to process this and deal with the aftermath.  And please keep their three children in prayer as well. (ages 11-15)

Back into routine.....

     After that hospital stint, we are getting back into the swing of things.  Tyler seems to be healing.  Norm takes him to the doctor for his follow-up tomorrow.

     Yesterday Nicole's marching band went to a competition.  There were 11 bands in their part of the competition and they got 5th place out of all 11.   Nicole was happy about that.

This morning their youth group left for the beach.  Due to a hurricane out to sea, they are not allowed to swim in the ocean so they will be stopping by a beach at a nearby bay.  We heard the waves were huge so I am glad that the state beaches decided not to allow anyone to swim.  

I have created a forum for Ovarian cancer warriors to go to connect.  I am letting it open for a month yet and then will take down if I get no more interest.  It is called Teal Warriors.  You can also click the Button on the left of this page.

You never know what's gonna happen......

Last Monday evening we ended up at the Emergency Room with my son, Tyler.  He turned out to have an infection in his abdomen so we ended up staying in until Friday.  They sent him home with antibiotics.  It seems to be healing but there is a possibility of it returning.  I pray it won't.

On Saturday,we decided to continue with the planned trip with my parents to the beach. (photos below) We went to a beach in New Jersey and then headed over to 6 Flags Safari. Kids had a great time!

I managed to call my oncologist to inquire about my tumor markers. Turns out they are great which makes me very happy!
