Prayer request needed:
More prayers needed for M! My cousin, M-20 years old, has been battling renal cell carcinoma for 6 years! He has his eighth (I think) major surgery on Monday. He is at the Children’s Hospital in Cincinnati, OH. It is a 12-14 hour surgery and they will be attempting to remove 3 tumors-one the size of a football. They might have to remove his colon, bladder, and prostate! I am praying they DO NOT have to! Last summer, they thought they might have to remove his colon, but prayers worked and they did not have to. I believe in the power of prayer!
For those that know what is going on….this is what has happened since my last prayer request. They visited the hospital in Cincinnati. He had to be put back in the hospital in Chattanooga for a few days for pain. He has a pain pump and they had to put a catheter in last week. My aunt has become an instant nurse-bless her. My aunt and uncle will be staying with him in OH for at least two weeks. My aunt sounds positive about this team of doctors and says that they are wonderful with reconstructive surgery if needed (prayers needed that he doesn’t need this). M’s girlfriend went too, but she will have to return sooner. M’s younger brother is in college in Chattanooga and will be staying home. M’s youngest brother is in high school and is staying with M’s girlfriend’s family! They are wonderful! Last summer was the longest recovery time for M-one week. This surgery will take at least 2 weeks recovery time! M has completed 2 years of college, but college will be put on hold this semester. I will hopefully update you sooner this time…after his surgery on Monday! Praying Now!!!

Hump Day Humor is hosted by Mercedes at Mercedes Rocks!
Two bowling teams, one of all blondes and one of all brunettes, charter
a double-decker bus for a weekend bowling tournament in Atlantic City.
The brunette team rides in the bottom of the bus and the blonde team
rides on the top level.
The brunette team down below is having a great time, when one of them
realizes she doesn’t hear anything from the blondes upstairs. She
decides to go up and investigate.
When the brunette reaches the top, she finds all the blondes frozen in
fear, staring straight ahead. She says, “What the heck is going on up
here? We’re having a grand time downstairs!”

Hey All! Just got home at 8:30 p.m. CST. My feet have been hurting each night, but I have never really looked at them. Today, I looked down and they are swollen. They have never done this-aaaahhhh! I am still not ready for school, but that is ok. We start officially tomorrow. WOW! The students and parents know what I have had to do and completely understand. I will be very busy this weekend. I still haven’t been to visit Hump Day Humor players and it will be Scrumptious Sunday before I know it. Maybe I will just not play this week-I dunno. I believe I am going to drop out of blogging every day. Too much pressure-LOL! Thanks to you all for continuing to visit! I haven’t forgotten about you-I have just been busy. I am going to go prop my feet up and hope the swelling goes down. Someone suggested taking water pills-but I don’t have time to go to the restroom at school. We only have a restroom break scheduled on Fridays-that is a joke-you would have to understand what we have had to go through to create our schedule-it completely sucks! Anywho-going to prop feet now! Hope all is A-ok in your world! Toodles, Mere

Hello All! I just go home at 9:00 p.m. CST-aaaahhhh! Does anyone know how to post Media Player Videos? This is all I have tonight. Here is a joke for ya!
Two young boys walked into a pharmacy one day, picked out a box of Tampax and proceeded to the checkout counter. The man at the counter asked the older boy, “Son, how old are you?”
“Eight”, the boy replied. The man continued, “Do you know how these are used?”The boy replied, “Not exactly, but they aren’t for me. They are for him.
