Don't let the above photo fool you, it's raining cats and dogs here this morning..Our little creek is filled to the brim..Yesterday it looked like a little branch and today it's looking more and more like a lake.. I'm standing guard at the windows, wondering if I may have to run.. I surely hope all my blogger friends that have been in the bad drought has got some of this good rain... I know you have suffered a long time in more ways than one..Everything happens for a reason, that's for sure..
I know that I don't post as often as some on here and please forgive me if I've slacked any on visiting your posts.. I've tried to check in every now and then but it' seems there's always distractions one way or another.. I do enjoy Your posts and look forward to them.. Life gets so hectic sometimes that we don't get the chance to do what we want just what we have to do..Still sickness in my family.. One brother is still having chest pain (don't know whats gonna happen there), another is going in for prostate surgery. He has Prostate Cancer.One of my brother in laws is on Dialysis, and his kidneys are getting worse by the day.. I have my twelve year old grandaughter with me today , she has a bladder infection and suffers with the same bladder disease that I have. ( Intersistial Cysistitis, IC for short).. I feel so sorry for her, knowing how bad it is and the suffering one has to go through..They said it was inherited..My mother had it to for many years.She died of Bladder Cancer in 97.. It's an inflammation of the bladder.. It gets in the lining of the bladder and causes ulcers.. There's no cure.. Over the years I've self educated myself on it .. I've read everything I could get my hands on and finally found a group called Intersistial Cysistitis Foundation.. They are working hard everyday to find a cure for the millions that suffer with it like myself.. They lobby in Washington and other places and they go beyond the call of duty.. Thank God for them and the wonderful work they do..
Didn't mean to get off on all this stuff, I know there's people out there in worse shape and going through things that I can't imagine, I want you to know I'm praying for you everyday.. Please forgive me for ranting on and on about my problems..I try my best to not be selfish and think of others needs , when we get to where we can't do that we're in bad shape..
On a lighter note, I've been doing some quilting lately and I'm getting excited about something else I haven't talked about much.. I'm publishing another book, hope to have it out by spring or summer.. The rate I'm going it may be longer.Something to look forward to for sure..Now that I've poured out all of my problems and then some, I'll shut my trap for today and wish you all a nice tuesday.. God Bless, Susie
