Feeling a Little Grateful...

S'up people, (my best 'hood lingo) Ha!
I am getting excited because my nephew is coming home for ten days... he's a Marine and I am soooo proud of him. He has really grown up. I knew he would, but it's still something to see the difference. I hope to spend some time with him while he's here. He is a good kid. Well, I guess I should say a good young man now.
Anyway, I got the word on little Haley's new baby brother Tristan. He's going to have open heart surgery this coming week. It'll be the first of several to correct a lot of problems with his heart. The great news is that the doctors think that once they complete the surgeries, Tristan should be able to develop as a normal healthy little boy. And Haley's numbers have been very good. They wait a little while before they start throwing out the term 'cancer free' but hey, hope rules the day. Their parents deserve a break. Two kids and they both have had to deal with serious life-threatening issues. Enough already.
Right now I'm house and dog sitting till Saturday. The dog is keeping me awake because she keeps wanting to go do her 'business' during the night. It doesn't mix well with working a dayshift and remaining focused... zzzzzz My eyes are struggling to stay open...

Hey Mik, I signed up just to post on your blog. Yep, you are special! Good news on your nephew. Seems like some people get more than their fair share of burdens. As I get older, I see some truth to the saying, "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger".
Yes, my son is better. Thanks for asking.
