Thanksgiving is approaching and many of us are reflecting on all the things and people in our lives that we are thankful for. This Thanksgiving, November 25, 2010 will mark the two year anniversary of my divorce... and I am OH SO thankful for what I do not have! lol Each person bring joy into our lives, some when the come into our lives and other when they leave!

So this year I am giving thanks for what I no longer have and the wonderful blessings that I do. A Happy Turkey Day to all!!

The cake I made for my mom's birthday. She was thrilled, and it tasted GREAT!!


I haven't dressed up for Halloween in such a long time, I had forgotten how fun it could be! A group of us dressed up as the Super Hero Assisted Living Community, complete with a calendar of activities for us old washed up super hero's to take

We had  Wonder Woman, Batgirl, Zorro, Cat Woman, lava girl, and our "invisible man" with his own orderly and nurse. Neither my fiance` or BFF could tell the picture of me dressed up was me... lol

The wake up call to get healthy

When I met Bobby over a year and a half ago, he told me of his concerns when it came to being in a relationship with someone as far as his health. His family has had health problems and one that seems to hit all the men is health issues. His father has had 2 and a year before Bobby I met he had one. From the stories that I have been told about the incident he is very lucky to be alive and infact the doctors told him that most people who went through what he did usually didn't make it through.  Since then however, as far as I know other than changing up meds and that type of thing all has been fine. He just recently went to the doctor who ordered a stress test because he didn't think something was quite right. Afterwards, the tech told him everything looked ok and he would be getting the official results in a few days. Well, today the doctors office called and he has to undergo another surgery. One of the two stents that was placed in his heart before has moved or is not properly working. 

I know this shouldn't surprise me, knowing the history, but I suppose I was hoping that nothing would happen or at least not for a very long time. I guess its better to find an issue and correct it than finding out later by something bad happening. Although I know this, it doesn't make me worry any less. I pray that the surgery will go well without any problems and he will really get serious about getting healthy.
