A Short Update

Sorry I haven't posted in a bit, but things are sooooo out of control here right now!
Thanks for all of the posts, thoughts, and prayers. Please know that I do feel and appreciate them.

Mike is still with us! Days are becoming more and more difficult,but we are counting every day as a blessing.
He is having different issues every day. All are tumor related, and nothing much more can be done. Hospice is AWESOME!! They are taking such good care of him, and for the most part, keeping him pain free.

On a HAPPY note....he got an email from his daughter! Thank God! It was definately a "God Thing" because until now she wanted no contact with any of us. The email was a "One time letter" but none the less, a letter!
He was soooooo happy!

Since my last post, we have also had BJ, Catherine and Lyric move back home with us. BJ has been off work since Thanksgiving, and the auto industry isn't looking too promising! Chuck also is an auto worker and laid off...so we've become the Waltons! I LOVE having them here, but after being alone with Chuck for the past 5 years, we need to adjust! It's really different having a full house again!

My house is turned completely upside down. It's driving me nutz since I hate clutter! What can you do when you combine 2 total households into 1? You count your blessings that you have a happy healthy family!
The clutter will clear and the kids will eventually find a place of their own. For now, I'm thankful that we are able to help them out and that my daughter in love and I are friends!

Please continue to pray for us, and I'll update just as soon as I can breath!

Bless your heart, Jacki!!!! You have such a full plate!
I pray that your full house remains a happy one. :)
That's awesome news about the letter. I'm so glad that young woman 'stepped up' and contacted your brother before his passing.
Praying for you...

God Bless you Jacki! You do have a full plate and I have sometimes griped because I have my parents living with me...and after being married for only three years became a care giver. It has been tough and I can imagine what you are going through. I am glad the letter came. Prayers and love to you all.

Oh good. Phew, I've been wondering. Leave the house, it'll still be there.
