Sunday, June 20th


Happy Father's Day
to all the Dads out there!!!

And especially to my own Dad!
(...even though he'll never see this...)

And Dads, please think about this...
YOU are the first (and most important) relationship your little girl will have with a man. 
Make it a shining example of all her future relationships she should have with the men in her life.
Treat her the way you want her future special-someone to treat her
so she KNOWS she DESERVES to be treated with

My Right Hand...

She was born in 1991...
my second (and final) baby.

She quickly asserted herself into our family...
Independently marching to her own drum.

As she grew, i tried my best to begin to slowly let go...

And now she graduates from High School tomorrow.

Kitty, i will ALWAYS be here for you!

(Even though you've figured most things out for yourself
and don't really need me anymore.)

Truth be told, it is *I* who have always needed

You speak for me when i'm afraid to,
and you seem to know me better than anyone else does...

And still you love me
in spite of it

Thank you so much for the most wonderful 19 years of my life!
I love you Sweet Girl!

Here's the Scoop


Okay.  So here's the scoop on my  Daddy.
He went to have his CT scan on Wednesday, and the doc told him "It's not just worse, it's a hell of a lot worse!", so he sent him to the hospital where he was admitted to the ICU.  That was Wednesday.
On Friday, Daddy had "brain surgery".  The doc drilled two holes in the right side of his skull.  One to relieve the pressure and the other to allow all the fluid to come out (or something like that).
Over the course of three days, they drained over a pint and a half of fluid from his brain!
Unbelievable, i know!
But now he is acting more like Daddy and sounding much more like Daddy.
They shaved half of his head, so it took a while for me to get used to looking at him like that.  I've always seen him with a head full of hair.
But i went over there tonight and shaved the rest of his head (that wasn't covered by the bandage and tape). 

I'm just relieved that he is sounding more "like himself" now.
I can breathe a sigh of relief now.

So thank you for all your prayers!
I don't exactly do that myself, but i believe it certainly can't hurt! =-)
thank you!

I think everything is gonna be alright.

Hope you have a WONDERFUL day!
