Many of you have been wondering where in the world I’ve been…..
As usual, our lives have been far from dull. Between having to have my foot rebuilt TWICE, not just once :0( , and still in a boot cast (since Aug 30!) THEN before I can say I’ve hit the “magic” 5 year mark with battle #11 – hopefully in November, (colon cancer) , I got the news that I entered into battle #12 with my nemesis. This time, chemo induced most likely (three basal carcinomas – stitches and all!! with 3 tumors removed, all malignant. Blessed once again, they got clean margins! I’m not eligible for any more chemo/radiation, so am happy to return to the bountiful garden and fresh fish/meats of Alaska to sustain me. I’ve also been working on a grant for Book 2, “And Yet Another Day to Turn Obstacles and Adversity into Opportunities and Adventures – the stories behind Book One, Loose Screws and Skinned Knees – now on Kindle!! Book 2 is in it’s rough draft version, with hope for June date – we’ll see!!
THEN!! The best news of all! Our incredible daughter and equally awesome incredible son-in-law gave us the gift of a life – our first grandchild!
Scott Carl Casey came into this world at 2:43am on 9-12-14, weighing 7 lb 8oz, after forty long hours of labor. Let me tell you – those two parents are two of the strongest people we know!! Enjoy the photo and know that once things settle, I’ll be writing, speaking and podcasting more!
