Sorry for not posting sooner but it has been a hairy couple of weeks here as DH went into the hospital for his surgery . It was a rough and rocking ride for him the past few weeks but he is on the mend . The Dr ended up taking 3/4 of his colon and reconnecting the leftover pieces which is awesome as he wouldn't have to have a bag .................. such a relief for him ! He did have a few complications post surgery and they were debating about going in and redoing the surgery ..... fortunately a CT scan ruled that out as the leak they figure he had healed itself . A few tense days to say the least but some very strong medications have made a huge difference and he is on the mend . A few more days and he should be seeing the EXIT sign on the hospital ..........
And the best news is the pathology report came back which showed no CANCER anywhere which is what our biggest fear was being DH's family history . His Father died of colon cancer 26 years ago . Medicine has come a long way !!
Once DH is strong enough we will head down to the MH ( which has been sitting waiting patiently for us to return ) and we will both recouperate and enjoy some down time .
Thanks for all the well wishes and support from my family and friends . I could not have survived without your shoulders when things got rough .
Life is good :-)

- I have been married to the same guy for a LONG time ! We have 3 grown children and the 5 loves of our lives that they have given us ... 4 girls and one boy ! I have been crafting all my life and found my true addiction when I taught myself to use Copic Markers and introduced them into my card making ! I am NOT certified in the use of Copics but that doesn't stop me from creating with them ! I always been a bit of a crafting rebel and don't follow directions well !I love crafting with my hands and seldom will you find them idle as they usually have a crochet hook , knitting needles or a book in them . Exercise is not my strong suit ! LOL ! My husband and I also love camping in our RV ( weather permitting ... as in NO snow !) so most weekends from Spring to Fall you find us camped somewhere with our 3 Yorkies .... though don't tell them they aren't BIG dogs ! Hope you enjoy my little touch of my life .... the creative and the real life !
