  1. 2017 County Fair is over

    I got the pictures in the Gallery now.
  2. Snowmom 2017 County Fair

  3. 2017 County Fair is over

    Well the fair has been over for a couple weeks now. For some reason I am not able to add my post so not sure if I an put any pictures in here at all. I tried just the flower pictures and they wouldn't let me post just 4 pictures. Guess I need to put them in the Gallery again this year. .
  4. Please pray for Old Pine

    I just wanted to update you all. Gary did find out what the CT scan had to say. The doctors were very pleased with the results. BUT, there was a spot that was not looking so good. They said it was an infection. The Oncologist gave him medication that was/is hard on him. The day he took it his appetite went from fairly good down to nothing again. He talked with one of the nurses this morning and she will be getting back to us after talking to the oncologist, so hope they will give him something different for the infection.
  5. Prayer for our church/family

    I'm so sorry for the family and friends.
  6. Miles for July 16 - 28, 2017

    Good morning, I am going to try something here. That worked. I no longer am able to put the pictures on here from my Photobucket as I am cheep. I don't want to pay them. It use to be free and now they want money for being on there and posting pictures elsewhere. Anyway, for the week of July 16 - 22 I did 20.84 miles. For the week of July 23 - 29 I did 21.78 miles. Now I will try to put a post in Homemade Memories about the fair sometime today. Momo, yes, Gary did find out what the CT scan had to say. The doctors were very pleased with the results. BUT, there was a spot that was not looking so good. They said it was an infection. The Oncologist gave him medication that was/is hard on him. The day he took it his appetite went from fairly good down to nothing again. He talked with one of the nurses this morning and she will be getting back to us after talking to the oncologist , so hope they will give him something different for the infection. I need to post this in the other forum too.
  7. Sad Day In My Town

    I am so sorry to hear about all these deaths. You take care of you and yours. Stay safe. I don't watch much of the news anymore either.
  8. My Mrs Survival Christmas Tree

    I love it. I see at least 3 that I made and 1 that Forgiven made. Right now I can't remember who made the others. I have had so much on my mind and I'm getting older. Thank you for sharing this with us.
  9. Please pray for Old Pine

    I know it has been a long time now since I have posted in here. We have had a lot going on in our lives. On the 6th of June Gary had a pet scan and it was inconclusive. There were spots on it and they were not sure what they were. It could be left over of pneumonia or could be a bit of COPD or it could still be cancer. Therefore on July 20th he will be going for a CT scan. Gary is eating much better and has gained a few pounds back and he really doesn't want to gain. He was eating a lot of Chinese for a while and then we have had company and he is now eating much more of what I am cooking. I posted in the Spa a bit more of what had been going on. I think I have gotten a better attitude after Gary has been eating better, or at least I hope I have. It was really hard when he just couldn't eat. Yes, Ann, I have heard that it is hard for them to eat much. I talked to our DDIL when she came and she said she had the same problem. She didn't have any weight to lose either, she is so thin anyway. Thank you all for your prayers. Please keep praying as it isn't all over yet. I am thinking if there is still cancer he will be doing more chemo.
  10. MO friend is going to court

    I'm glad to hear things are working out for your friend.
  11. Encouragement for tough times.

    This is so very true.
  12. Now to catch you all up on some of the stuff. On the 6th of June Gary had a pet scan and it was inconclusive. There were spots on it and they were not sure what they were. It could be left over of pneumonia or could be a bit of COPD or it could still be cancer. Therefore on July 20th he will be going for a CT scan. Minnie did damage the knee again and we still haven’t decided what to do. She is almost 12 years old, so how much longer will she live. She is getting around good now but, then on the other hand, she could do better if she had the surgery again. Of course it would cost another arm and leg as well as she would have to stay in boarding for another 4 weeks and that gets expensive too. I think we are just waiting a while and will talk to the vet again later on. I have a cousin about 2 hours from here and one of my nieces and I went to visit her in June and then later on Gary, our DD and I went back up to see her. I am now doing my pace maker every month so it seems to be getting closer to time for a new one. Our oldest son’s youngest son was here for 2 weeks and DS came last Thursday and they left Saturday morning. Our youngest son’s youngest son was here from Sunday the 9th of July to Friday the 14th of July. We took him back half way to Fargo. We had a nice time at a Pizza Hut with our 3 kids, as well as the two grandsons and also the oldest son of our youngest son and his girlfriend. I will have to get a picture of our group there. The county fair was held last week and we picked up our things yesterday, July 16th. I will put pictures in sometime within the next couple weeks. Ok, now for the miles I have done for the past month or so. The week of June 10th I walked 27.37 miles. The week of June 24th I walked 23.22 miles. The week of July 1st I walked 22.58 miles. The week of July 8th I walked 28.62 miles The week of July 15th I walked 25.08 miles. Remember, I had to put in a lot of miles while baking and such for the fair. Oh yes, to top it all off, I got a good burn on my right index finger while making hard candy for the fair.
  13. Please pray for Old Pine

    Thank you all again for praying for Old Pine, we know that God will do what he wants to do about this cancer. Tomorrow we go to Bemidji again and have to be there by 8:00 and Old Pine will be having a Pet Scan to see if there is any cancer there now. We are all praying that the cancer is gone. We go back on Thursday to see the doctor and find out the answer to the Pet Scan. He has lost a lot of weight and hopes to keep it off after all is said and done. He is still not eating much at all and has been drinking a lot of Ensure. He is on a medication to help his appetite and for a while he was doing better. After the pills were gone he went back to not eating like he should. He did get a renewal but, still isn't eating much at all. He is eating watermelon real good and some other fruit, but as for meats, potatoes, veggies, not so good. There are times he will eat one thing and then the next time I make it he won't eat it. This is so unlike him. After the radiation was finished his head has started pealing like a bad sunburn. We have been putting oils and such on him but it still is pealing. He has a sore behind his one ear so had to take him to the dr. on Saturday. He is using oxygen and with the burn, oxygen and his glasses, it has made it raw. We turn the AC on and he gets so cold and so goes outside so DD and I can be comfortable in the house. I know the chemo and radiation have had a lot to do with all of this. I am trying my best to stay positive. I don't sleep well, but, that is nothing new. If I get 5 hours of sleep at night I am doing really good, it is usually around 4 - 5 hours. I will be so glad when it is all done with. I'm praying that he won't have to have more chemo. I think we all need a vacation after this is done, but of course DD has used up a lot/most of her vacation time doing all the driving. She has gotten up early and worked late in order to not lose all of it. I'm sorry for venting, but, it is hard.
  14. Miles for April 16 - June 3, 2017

    I am so sorry I haven’t been in here for the past couple weeks. My fit bit says for the week of May 14 – 20th, I walked 20.84 miles. The week of May 21 – 27th, I walked 23.93 miles. For the week of May 28 – June 3rd I walked 26.86 miles. Well, now Minnie has been having problems with her leg that he had surgery on a few years ago. We are taking her to her Doctor in a little while. She is limping and not walking on that leg at all, she only uses it for balance. Tomorrow we go to Bemidji again and have to be there by 8:00 and Old Pine will be having a Pet Scan to see if there is any cancer there now. We are all praying that the cancer is gone.
  15. Please pray for Old Pine

    Good morning everyone. I know it has been some time since I gave you an update so here it is. Old Pine was in the hospital from April 24th until May 3rd. He has been home for a while and is doing much better. He is looking much better also. Today we go back up to start his radiation treatment, I’m not sure if he will still have 10 yet or just the 9 as he is to get 10 total. I don’t know if they will be able to count the one he had last month as one or not since it has been so long. Again, thank you all for praying.
