Today I want to share with you, as I go into another year of celebrating life. This photo of my Aunt Katherine and I, for whom I was named after, was taken last June. I am the fifth child born to my parents, and they let two of my favorite Aunts name me. Aunt Katherine, married my daddy’s brother. She may not be related by blood, but has always been a very special lady in my life.
I went to visit my Doctor this past Tuesday. I have received the best news, in six years of my illness. I have not been to therapy as my Doctor ordered, for my husband and I have had our grandchildren as our children went back to work. I will not go into all the details, but I have been doing a few things as therapy at home. My Doctor was so excited for I have accomplished more in the last two week by myself, than in the whole six years with professional help. I am to keep on doing my home therapy, for we know what is causing some of my daily muscle spasms, and much more of my complications. If in the next six weeks, I improve more, I will not have to have some of the major surgeries that would make me lose most movement of my left side and arm, and a whole lot more. My tumors are in a holding pattern. It is very hard for me to share all with you, but I am SO HAPPY! After the six week, we will schedule surgery. I will be having four to six surgeries, with time in between, to see if each surgery will improve my complications. My Doctor, will take care of the most pressing issues of my health first. Then if all goes well I will have surgeries to better my life. My Doctor has signed a contract to stay with the hospital for one more year. We hope to have all this done with in this year, for he may retire, to Kentucky. He has tried to get hubby and I to move to Kentucky before. If he retires, does anyone have a place I can come live. lol
Here I going to relax in my parlor with my new book, On a Wing and a Prayer, that I won from Bernideen Tea Time Blog. The print on the wall, I got from a garage sale for $3.00, The lamp(one of two with new lamp shades) and chair was in the attic when we bought our Craftsman’s Bungalow. The chair is one of two and need recovering. The easel a gift from my sister-in-law, Judy, upon it sits my new pink rose print. The little table was bought by my daddy, already old at a garage sale,when I was around ten years old. Shelf from Hobby Lobby and the grey trellis, from Ashland, AL gift shop. I usually, have a wreath hanging on it. But it is getting a new home on another wall.
With my pink rose tea cup, blueberry scones and book is where you shall find me, in a happy day of bliss!
