Fund raising auction

Well, Shawn is on his way home from his return visit to the hospital.  The surgery was just the beginning for him.  The surgery was simply to remove some tumors blocking his colon along with a section that was bleeding.  Shawn still has tumors all over inside him and we still have a long way to go.  He's unemployed, his fiance is unemployed now too.  We've got to find them and the baby somewhere to live.  We've still got Dr appointments to go to, still have to treat the cancer.

I don't have much to offer and the paycheck is simply not even close to enough.  All I have right now is a couple crocheted blankets.  Here's one for raffle.  $5 a ticket in the hat.  Help my son thru the next couple weeks.

This one is called grape fizz and it's 3' by 6'.

Disaster Time

Okay, here's an update on my son.  The doc sends my son home 2 days early.  My son can't even walk yet and the muscle spasms are constant.  Yep, he didn't make it 24 hours and we're calling and ambulance and headed for the ER.  Why is my son screaming in pain?  I do not know.  The ER did a CT scan and they see an unusual amount of fluid in the abdominal cavity.  So, here we go again.  I've lost another day of paycheck (starting to worry about losing my job now) and another 150 mile drive, this time following an ambulance.   The nurses are working on him, the floor on call Dr has been through.  This is going to be a looong, uncomfortable night.

So, if anybody is in the St Louis area, give me a shout, I could use a little company and a prayer partner......

Thank you

Thank you all who said prayers for us.  I'm in tears.  Debbie, Barbara, Patti and Carol, you ladies saved me.  I could not have got him there without you.  God bless.

The boy is already walking!  Well, a few steps is all they'd let him try but still, it's upright!  Wish I was there instead of at work.  Gotta be done tho.....

Start of the long road

So here we are, on the recovery side of the surgery.  I feel like a truck ran me over.  My son has a long road ahead of him.  We both do.  First thing, first appointment yesterday, pre surgery thing to mark him for the ostomy, the haughty witch receptionist wouldn't give me a parking validation ticket.  Oh yah, I had a high speed come apart all over her.  My son's nurse saved me bail money tho and I got the $15 parking fee waived.  Talk about robbing the captive audience.... Anyhoooo, we got him marked up and over to the other side and another parking lot on time.  The surgical team did Thier job and my son is resting.   I'm off to a 12 hour work shift......
