I am so thankful for every day that comes and goes. There has been one challenge after another since last September. I am so very blessed. The challenges have been beyond my comprehension at times but with prayer,Josh and family I have survived most of them well most of them. I'm still working on some of them. One of the latest challenges was to learn to administer my sister-in-laws medication thru her IV. It's so awesome to be able to help her in her time of need. My daughter is also helping. She needs 24 hr care so we take turns. It feels great to be able to help her so she could go home from the hospital .She has 3 surgeries. The last one was an emergency surgery and almost lost her 3x. She couldn't stand being there anymore (she was there for a month) so her Dr. suggested the home infusion program. It's working out great!! Missy and I both agree that it feels great to be a part of her recovery;

Missy started a new job last October. iI was supposed to be fulltime but she was getting about 16 hours a week. She had been looking and applying for a new job since last December. She had a few interviews but she was called back for a second interview. She was notified today that she is hired working at a hospital!! She will be a lead MA for 12 MA's!! YAY!! FINALLY a stable job!!!

My cousin has stage 4 Glioblastoma in the brain and she just found out that she's pregnant. She and her hubby of 9 months are thrilled. The next question is will she live long enough to give birth and the next question is will the baby have any defects from Jessica's brain surgery. We pray that the answer is yes to the first question and NO to the second question.

I never realized the strength I hold within. I thank God and Josh for that.

On a happier note I was driving ro my sil's with Josh on full. I was at a stop sign. I took my turn and a man stuck his hand out the window thumbs up and smiling ear to ear!! WOOOW!!! I LOVE IT!!!

Time for bed need to rise early.Sweet dreams all!
