    Thank you all for all of your prayers. Gary went to be with the Lord this morning around 2:00 A.M. He had been in a LOT of pain the last few days so he has no more pain and in time I will join him. We need to Rejoice in the Lord for he makes no mistakes. This song has been going through my head for the past several days now. He was able to hold on until 3 grandsons came to see him. I don't think he saw them but, he heard their voices. He was unable to talk. and he only opened his eyes a few times yesterday. But, he knew the boys were here. Again thank you all for your prayers. We are all so very tired and we have the service coming on Saturday as our one son and his wife need to leave here on Monday or Tuesday. We are in hopes that at least 2 of the three who came last night will be able to come on Saturday. Love you all. Carol

    I'm so sorry I haven't been in here, but, so much has happened. He had to have another 30 days of radiation treatments only this time on his right lung. He also had a cardiac taken off his left eye. Our DD who has taking most of her vacation time to do all the running around for him. Part of the time she would get up and work for 1 1/2 hours then work for 3 – 4 hours after 5:00 so she could get in her 8 hour day. Gary has lost over 90 pounds now and is eating ok. We saw his Oncologist yesterday and what we heard was not good news. Since his cancer is small cell it spreads like wildfire. He now has it in his liver, his bones, back, neck and he has not much time left here on earth. When I had a chance to be with her, the oncologist, I asked for a timeline and she said “a month”. All three of our kids were with us and so I did tell them after we got home that he hasn’t much time. Our son rode his bike from Texas and had to leave this morning to go back. Pray for his safety as well has his wife who will be leaving in a few day to head to PA. Please continue to pray for Gary that he might not have to suffer to much pain. He is in pain and has pills he can take every 4 – 6 hours. Thank you all for all of your prayers. I'll be back when I am able.

    Today I am trying to catch up on laundry. With all that has been going on here I haven't done it for a while. I am also going to try to get some much needed rest. In other words, I plan to take a nap this afternoon. Since the first of the year the kitchen, living/dining rooms and hall have been painted and stuff is still setting all over the place. I don't know if we will be putting the pictures back on the walls or not. Have a good day everyone.

    Well, today is another day. When we were in Fargo, his check up went well, but, the doctor found out that he was having problems with his feet. So, on Friday he had an angiogram done on his left leg. Then we had to spend the night in Fargo just in case he needed to go back to the doctor. When we got home we found our sewer frozen. DS took Gary up town and he bought a heater for the sewer and that helped a lot. But, of course we had to get it pumped and then the lines steamed. I am working on doing laundry today. Tuesday we went to Bemidji where Gary had a pet scan. It turns out that his right lung has a spot probably the size of a nickel to a quarter and he will be getting more chemo soon. All this running around, (stress), is really making me so tired and my BP is not doing the best so am suppose to double my medication. I am always so tired now and just can’t seem to get enough sleep. Poor DD is working late and working early to make up for her days and so she is really worn out too. She is our driver so she needs to have her sleep too. Our church has men's breakfast and Bible Study on Fridays and so Gary went to town this morning by himself, the first time in a very long time. He made it there safe. DD let the Pastor know he was on his way and when he got there Pastor texted and said they have him. We all really love our pastor, he is one in a million. Yesterday he came out and put our mail box up as it had been down since sometime in December. Thanking you all in advance for prayers as we all really need them.

    I know it has been a while since I have been in here, I have been so busy with the holidays and then we had our DIL from PA here for 3 weeks. Our DD and DIL did a lot of work on the house, they painted both the kitchen and living room/dining room. Everything is in a mess yet, as things are not put back where they came from and it sounds like we won’t be putting a lot of it back. I didn’t even get packages sent out to the grandkids and SIL so have that to do yet. I sent no cards out and need to get some letters sent as there are people I get from who aren’t on line. I want you to know that Gary did have his surgery on the 4th of January and all went well. He is doing fairly well and did gain about 10 pounds as he has been eating much better. DIL had a couple good talks with Gary as she has gone through chemo and radiation as well. I am sure the talks have helped him a lot. He has been so upset as he is having problems remembering some things and she told him she is still getting some of her memory back and she had her chemo and radiation 8 or 9 years ago. Sometimes it is hard when you can't remember just the right words you want to say. Gary goes to Fargo again on Tuesday and sees the doctor for a check up on the surgery as well as a CT scan of the area. Then he goes the next Tuesday to Bemidji and gets a pet-scan and sees the oncologist. So, it is going to be two long days so glad they are a week apart. I guess that is about it for now. Thank you all for praying for Gary.

    Good morning everyone, I want to let you know that it looks like the cancer is staying put, not growing. Gary had his ultra sound done yesterday and the doctor was happy with the results. The blood clots that had shown up last time are now gone too. God is so good. Gary goes in the first week in January for his aneurysm surgery. I sure haven’t gotten things done around here, packages for family are still not ready to mail and I haven’t sent any cards out either. The only thing I have done is make a few cookies. I got the tree up and decorated a week + ago and that is really not the way I usually do it. We do wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Thank you all for praying for him and all of us.

    I know I normally make a thread about this, but, things are just not the same this year and some of you have already posted so we will just post everything here. I got my ornament from Annarchy too. I love it. I am in hopes to get mine out yet this week, if not, by Tuesday next week. We are going to be gone most of Friday and it is another all day for Gary in Bemidji on Monday. in case I don't get in here before then.
