MyDaddy is in the hospital again.

He had a fistulogram with angioplasty yesterday.

He went home after the procedure and got sick.

He had a high fever,

shortness of breath,

and he was hallucinating.

He went to the hospital in an ambulance.

He has an infection and they promptly admitted him.

So while we’re in the emergency room,

waiting for them to transfer him to his room,

Ba.y.l.o.r Transplant Services called.

They had a kidney for him……

A KIDNEY THAT HE DESPERATELY NEEDS!!!

A kidney that he had to refuse because he’s admitted to a hospital with an infection.

I swear,

it never ends!

le sigh……

Saturday morning I walked with MyMama in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Fort Worth, TX.

We walked in honor of MyAunt Marcella B. Pittman.

We also walked in honor of MyMama who is a seven-year breast cancer survivor.

MyMama in her Super Survivor Cape.

And MyDearFriend who was recently diagnosed with Stage Four breast cancer.

We had a wonderful day.

It was emotional,

but it was so beautiful to see that sea of pink.

There were survivors EVERYWHERE!

We’ll walk again next year,

hopefully with a team of supporters

Sunday morning,

Shug & I woke up early.

We prayed and then we went to MyParents.

Shug & MyDaddy boiled 68 lbs of crawfish.

MyBigBrother and cousin came over,

and we devoured all of them except for about 10 lbs!

They were delicious!!

So there it is,

I had a wonderful weekend!

The donor kidney wasn’t good enough to transfer.

Of course we’re disappointed,

but we’re still optimistic.

Thanks so much for the prayers,

hopefully we’ll need them again soon.

They have a kidney for MyDaddy!!

THEY HAVE A KIDNEY FOR MYDADDY!!

Prayerfully,

this is it!

Please pray!!

MyMama & MyDaddy - Christmas 2008

66 and effortlessly fabulous.

She is a breast cancer survivor.

December 9, 2009 marked her sixth year cancer free.

On Saturday morning she found a lump about the size of a nickel in her right breast.

The same breast that her cancer was in before.

Because she is effortlessly fabulous,

she’s taking this in stride.

She called her oncologist right after she found the lump.

She’s being scheduled for an ultrasound & mammogram.

She is in good spirits,

concerned but not afraid.

She does BSE (breast self exams) every time she showers.

THIS is something new.

Something that basically popped up overnight.

MyBrothers & I are falling apart.

We’ve been able to handle MyDaddy’s renal cancer and subsequent renal failure for the past 11 years.

But  MyMama?!?!

She has always been in good health.

Even when she had her lumpectomy and radiation.

She was still the picture of good health.

This is scary!

We’re walking on faith.

If you pray,

please pray for MyMama.

If you chant,

please chant for MyMama.

However you worship, pray, praise……

Whatever you do!

Please keep MyMama in your thoughts and prayers.

My Fabulous Mama!

*UPDATE*

PRAISE GOD & BABY JESUS!

IT’S A FATTY CYST.

IT WILL BE MONITORED,

BUT SHE IS FINE!

WHEW!!

MY FABULOUS MAMA!!

MyDaddy - Mardi Gras 2007

My birthday was wonderful.

All that anxiety for nothing.

41 feels fabulous.

MyDaddy had surgery yesterday.

He came through surgery well,

but we had a bit of a scare while he was in recovery.

He was having trouble breathing.

His blood oxygen level was 85%,

after sticking a tube down his throat and nose,

and working on him they got it up to 96%.

Normal is 95-100%.

He retained a lot of fluid from surgery,

so they sent him to dialysis and kept him overnight.

He’s probably going to go home today after his surgeon checks him out.

It’ was pretty scary,

but he’s breathing fine now,

and he feels so much better.

So glad that all’s well!
