Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

Sweet Man
You see this sweet man, well, he's my Dad and he's had a tough time the past couple of months.  He has been in the hospital twice and we had to take him back this past Saturday evening.  The other two visits were because of a colon infection but this one is entirely different.  He was stricken very suddenly on Thursday evening with muscle weakness and had little use of his extremities.  The possibility of Guillain-Barre Sydrome is being discussed but Drs. have not said for certainty  but are continuing with tests.  I would so appreciate your prayers for him.  We are hopeful that he can make a full recovery, whatever it ends up being. I will keep you posted!
Hubby and I are suppose to fly out early Thursday morning headed towards Dodge City.  Yep! this will be our first trip to see our daughter and her family since they moved there a few weeks ago.  We are so excited about seeing our little Clancy and hopefully my Dad's condition will be such that I feel comfortable leaving.
Matchy Matchy
I usually have a French Manicure on my fingernails but this past week I decided that I wanted to be "matchy matchy" with my hands and feet.  I think the color is called "Cajun Shrimp" by OPI.
      "The Golfer"
Hubby plays in a Scramble every Thursday evening and I decided to go along with him this past one.  I took my camera and had a good time snapping cute shots of him.  Don't you think he looks cute in his plaid shorts?  I do! ~giggle~

Best Friends
 I got to see my "best friend forever" this past Friday for a little while.  She was in the area (she lives in Orlando) for a family reunion and we managed to sneak in a little time.  I want to tell you that she is a Stage 4 Colon Cancer survivor.  Yep! isn't that amazing!  She was diagnosed 8 years ago this past Jan.  She has since been declared "cancer free."  Now, I must say that her cancer was diagnosed through a routine colonoscopy, she had no symptoms and no idea.  So, girlies, if you are 50 years or older, make sure you get your colonoscopies. It could save your life!

My days are very full and busy right now with my Dad, so if I do not get by to visit, you'll know why.  He is most important right now and again, I so appreciate your prayers for him.  We are hoping for a more conclusive diagnosis today. I'm thankful that I serve a God that gives me peace in the midst of the storm.
Monday's are always fun because of MM. Hope yours in a happy one.
