Okay, so 48 hours from now I will be in Florida for my brothers wedding. YAY! I started packing yesterday, and have a mental list of all the things I have left to pack before we leave. My goal is to get that finished up tonight...then all I'll have to do is wake up at 3 am, call Delta, and see if we can get on the 6am flight outta here! I would like to be there as soon as possible so I can spend some time with my Papa before the wedding festivities are full blown under way.
Tomorrow is going to be a big day for our family as far as Papa goes. He went and met with his oncologist last Tuesday, and basically there are two options. 1 is that he has a slow progressing form of the cancer and we can blast it with some chemo or radiation or whatever. The other option is that it is a fast progressing form of cancer and there really won't be anything we can do. It is very scary, and my mom is down there now, and she says she is fearing the worst. Just basically it sounds so horrible.....anyway....we find out at the oncologist tomorrow if the cancer has spread to his brain. He is having a biopsy done on Wednesday, and we will find out those results on Friday. God love my poor brother. He is stressing over his wedding, and over our grandfather too. I just feel for him. Any words of advice or anything encouraging would be much appreciated, and I would gladly pass it along to him.
So anywho....hope all is well....I don't know if I'll be blogging while on vacation, so if not I hope everyone has a fantastic Thanksgiving, and is truly thankful for all the blessings we have.

Once you think you've found peace with something all he%$ breaks loose....once you think you're having a great day....one moment changes everything. This morning started out great...it's Friday, it's sunny, and very warm outside for beginning of November. Then at 11:15am I got the phone call. It was my dad...my grandfather wasn't feeling well this week, and my grandmother finally took him to the hospital this morning. My mom and I discussed it this morning and came to the conclusion it might be swine flu....congested, achey, not eating and losing weight. Sadly we were wrong. It's cancer. I really don't know what else to say aside from that. He had all sorts of scans and tests done today, and we won't know how to go about treatment until he hears back from his doctor sometime this afternoon. At this point all we can do is pray and try to stay positive. To quote my brother.... "Let's keep in mind that doctors always lead off with the worst, because it looks better to come back and give good news than bad news. So let's keep positive thoughts and prayers for good news". So this time...I am asking for prayers...I ask for strength for my grandfather to battle the fight he's going to have....and I ask for strength for my grandmother to get through this....Lord knows she's not an emotional rock...and I fear for her. And lastly, please just keep my entire family in your prayers...I know God wouldn't have given us this battle if He didn't think we could handle it...but any thoughts you could send our way would definitely be greatly appreciated.
Love to all xoxo

I just want to stop and think a minute of how truly blessed I am. I have a husband who loves me, cares for me, and always puts my needs before his own. I have not a house, but a home we have created together. We have two incomes to help us pay bills, and occasionally do fun things together. We are both happy and healthy even though I know sometimes I nag him...I complain when he makes fun of me...or laughs at me (he says with me...but sometimes I'm not laughing)...I get upset over stupid things that shouldn't matter, and yet he stays with me. He loves me unconditionally, as I do him. I just want to thank God for bringing him into my life, and for always providing for us. I love my life, I love my husband, I love my God.

Both are males. The first is a pitbull, who is approximately two years old. The second is a black lab-mix and is approximately six months. They appear to have just been dropped off by their previous owner, but I don't think they were abused at all, as both are extremely sweet and affectionate. They are both neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped and free to a good home!
If interested please please PLEASE let me know and I'll get you in contact with the couple who has them in their possession at this point.
