Default I've been gone awhile

Hi everyone,

It's been awhile since I last posted. Lots of things have been going on. My daughter went back to school in Tampa, my son moved home from Tampa and was job hunting. He did get a job at Bank of America which starts in two weeks (after all the final background checks and fingerprinting)

I have been busy with my mom and dad. Dad has been having lots of test for his upcoming knee replacement surgery next week. They discovered that while we were under the impression that he suffered from a mini seizure a few years ago, it may have actually been a mini stroke. Also, he had damage around his heart. They asked him when he had his heart attack. He told them "WHAT HEART ATTACK?" The doctors stated that it must have been a minor one to which my dad replied "It had to have been since I didn't know I had one."

As for me, I need to go to my "lady doctor". They discovered a small spot on an ultrasound that I had awhile back. They now want to do more testing.

Hopefully I can find more time to be on the boards.

Hope everyone has a great and safe weekend.
Cheryl C.

Good to see you back. I'm glad your son is back home, I know how you missed him. I'm sorry to read about your dad's, and your medical problems. I'll be praying for you both.

Spring season will soon be underway! There is something to look forward too.

Is your dad ok? And keep us in the loop on your issues.

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.
