Good news, bad news, funny news

I’ll start with the bad news first and get that out of the way.

Toni, my sons girlfriend has been having problems with her legs. She has a LOT of pain and has days where she can hardly stand on them let alone walk. Because she doesn’t have any insurance she put off going to see a doctor for awhile but she finally went a couple of weeks ago. We along with the doctors was worried that she might have MS but all the tests they ran they determined that she doesn’t have that but they don’t know what is causing it. She even drags her foot when she walks which is a symptom of MS but they say it isn’t that. A good and bad thing that showed up on the MRI and CT scan though showed she has a brain aneurism. It’s good that they found it and they said that it’s small but it’s scary that she even has one. She now has to go to Madison and see the doctors there and find out how to treat that and find out what is causing everything. Maybe it’s that that is messing up her legs. I don’t know, I just hope and pray they can help her.

Now for some good news…

Remember Jimmy, our cousin’s husband who needed a bone marrow transplant? Well he had it and he’s doing wonderful! The donor cells are working and his body is now producing his own platelets. That’s great news because he hasn’t for several months. He had a few rough days after the transplant but the doctors assured them that everything he is going through is normal for transplant patients. He’s out of the hospital and can now stay at the guest quarters with his wife and just go back to the hospital each day for blood tests and things. We couldn’t be more happier or thankful and grateful for them. Thank you again for keeping them in your prayers.

Ready for some funny news?

Sis and I were outside with the kids the other day. Brody was barefoot. He was running up the driveway when he stubbed his toe a little. It wasn’t enough to make him cry but it was enough to make him realize that he should have shoes on. He turns around, and with his back to us and walking away he sticks his finger up in the air and said soos (shoes). I said “Where ya going Brody?” and again he says soos and kept walking toward the house. Well in he goes and pretty soon we could hear this clomp clomp clomp coming across the floor. Did we ever laugh when he stepped out on the deck in Williams shoes lol. Here, take a look.

Now for the most exciting news of all!!!

Our son proposed to Toni and she said YES!!!

I’m so happy! I really like her and I love how considerate they are with each other. They have mutual respect and are perfect together. She’s the sweetest thing you could ever meet and she makes my son happy. Needless to say, that in itself means the world to me. They are planning the wedding for next summer, probably around July so it’s going to be a busy time around her. I’m beyond excited though. Of course you are all invited, we’ll dance and sing until our feet fall off and our voices are gone lol.

    (¸.•´ (¸.•` ¤ I am sorry to hear about Toni's current medical crisis. I can tell you that the one person who I know that suffered a brain aneurysm, underwent treatment, and did very well while going through the recovery process. There's a lot to be said about positive thinking!! Now that they have isolated her medical condition, they can now start her on a road to recovery.

    Brody is one awesome little dude! He's quite the character. You can tell that he's spending a lot of time around his grandmother... getting cuter by the day and the things he says and does... priceless.

  9. Don't faint SIS.. here I am...
    Wow glad I was able to catch up here. I rarely get time to visit a blog anymore but this one was chocked full of things to read. Brody is so cute and bless him he knew what he needed and went for it! Congrats on the engagement..if you like her then she must be something special. Hope the aneuresym won't be too bad. I am pretty sure that is probably the cause of the leg problems. Hope they can fix it. Take care and have a great holiday!

    (¸.•´ (¸.•` ¤ We all have our own reasons to celebrate... so let's do just that, and celebrate all we have because of where we live, in either of the two greatest countries there are!

    If you celebrate the Fourth of July - Happy Independence Day. If you celebrate July 1st - Happy CANADA Day!
