We lost the BIL with cancer on February 19th. He is now at peace.

The BIL with kidney cancer has been through a rough time but, is now doing better again.

As for our family, we are all doing well. Spring crops are planted-the earliest we have ever been done. DH had last week off and the weather was nice-usually means a dry year. I started work on my greenhouse and DH and Kute Kitten helped yesterday. I need to get more boards though as I have doubled the size I was originally going to build it. We've been fishing a couple times this year but, haven't brought anything home. Either the fish weren't biting or they were to small to keep.

I know it's been awhile since I last posted.

My BIL with the lung cancer is still here. The doctors had given him 1 month. The month was up Christmas day. His feet and legs have now changed color though. He is more than ready to go and has been for a few months.

Winter here has been crazy. First it's really cold. Then it warms up and it snows. Then it warms up more and decides to rain. We are all healthy and have avoided being really sick this winter. Only the small stomach bugs.

I know it's been awhile since I posted here. I've been busy making quilts for Christmas presents and one baby quilt. I'm down to one queen size quilt, which is in progress. I've made a queen, baby, lap with throw pillows, and a full sized one.

The forum is getting a lot of visitors and hopefully one day they will join. Some of them have spent quit a bit of time checking things out. :)

The sick bugs out there, in the public, right now are terrible! So far we have the nasty cold and Peanut spent a couple days with a fever but, that has been it. I'm praying that it stays that way. With us wore down from this cold I opted to change Jess/Kute Kitten's migraine and lymes check appt. Hopefully, things will calm down before we have to go into the clinic for that or anything else! At least we will have had a chance to recover some.

Tiffany and I met at the doorway into the manger, this morning. I was heading into the barn and she was barreling out. She collided with my knee and knocked me over. Then proceeded in true puppy fashion to run circles around me and jump over me. DH came to my rescue. My knee didn't hurt this morning but, it hurts, snaps, crackles, and pops now!

I got to the barn this afternoon to find Whatsit (heifer) out. By the time I hobbled to the shed Tiffany had rounded her up and headed her back to the gate I had opened. Good puppy. :) Whatsit had been in the barn and broke a water pipe. The east manger was flooded. :( I managed to get that cleaned up. I'll keep plucking away at things and get done what I can. DH will have to help when he gets home with some stuff though, I'm sure.

Not good news.

BIL with Lung Cancer and Emphysema was in the hospital. Turns out he had radiation sickness/poisoning and pneumonia. He is home but, will need to be on full time oxygen for the rest of his life and antibiotics for who knows how long. He will never get better. A bad infection, such as pneumonia, can kill him.

Bad news

First, Hi Becky! I can now be found here. Come check us out. :)

BIL with the Kidney cancer has had a rough week. His dog got sick and they ended up loosing her Thursday night. We went and buried her for them Sat. morning.

Then on Friday he had doctor appts. The x-ray showed that the cancer has had significant growth. He will go for a scan in two weeks and there is a new drug made just for Renal Cell (Kidney)cancer out. I guess it has just been okayed by the FDA. He has been so lucky with catching the leading edge but, only time will tell whether or not this drug will work for him. The last one didn't do a whole lot.

BIL with Lung cancer is getting worse. He is having trouble getting around as he runs out of breath in real short order. I so wish they were closer so we could help. They have 3 steers ready to go and his wife is going to have to load them herself. It's a four hour drive one way there and right now it's extremely fustrating!
