Heading for Cleveland soon

Next week, March 10,  I will be having surgery to have either an ileostomy or colostomy placed. I've been waiting for this to happen since December since it was discovered that what is left of my native colon is now diseased.  I'll be in the hospital for a week then have to stay at the hotel for 2 weeks.  So if you don't mind, pray that all goes well and I have a speedy recovery.  

Kids are doing well.  They are staying ahead with their school which they are all glad of so they don't spend their summer doing school. The girls have a youth conference coming up for church in a few weeks. They are excited to be going.  It's a time they have to grow closer iin their walk with God.  
Kelsey just finished her last driving course this week. She'll be getting her license at the end of March.  Watch out people!  Don't say I didn't warn you lol! No, she's a pretty careful and cautious driver. 

In April Shane's Shine Shop will be moving to a new location in Princeton!!! How exciting! It will be on Pleasant street behind Princeton Pharmacy and Carquest.  Things are going well and this year will be his upcoming 10 year Anniversary. 

In December I wrote my donors family asking them if they'd be willing to have direct communication without having to go through the organ procurement organization.  The weekend of Valentines I received a letter stating their contact information and I signed off mine to them.  I sent off my first picture to them.  I can't wait to for the first card directly to me, so I can know more about my donor and his family.  

In February the youth did a Valentine banquet at church as a fundraiser.  They fixed bruschetta and salad, toasted raviolis, spaghetti and meatballs or chicken fettuccine and breadsticks.  They decorated in Italian theme and we ate by candlelight.  At home for Valentine's Day we ate on my Great Grandmas china. The girls helped me fix salad, chicken with BBQ sauce, cheese and bacon, and topped with sautéed peppers.  We also had cheddar biscuits, asparagus, Parmesan noodles, and for dessert we had Oreo dessert parfaits. 

Thank you so much for all your prayers!  I know I'm not fighting this alone, God is right beside me each step of the way.  Also I know that I have the support of you all through your prayers, love, text, emails, and cards.   Thank you!!
