Family Update for May

Can you believe  that it is the end of May already?  It  is hard for me to keep track these days, sometimes I don't even know what day it is. A lot has happened in the last 9 months, starting with becoming empty nesters and then my cancer diagnosis. My family has been so supportive I don't know how I would have made it without them.

Now for the updates:

Sarah has finished her first year of Graduate School and is taking making sure her high school athletes are safe and well cared for.  She loves her job as athletic trainer and the students, coaches and administrators all love her!  It was so nice having Sarah home this Memorial Day. She was in Holland for a wedding and then spent time with us.  She will be coming back home for an extended period in a few weeks.  It will be good  to have her home.

Mary finished her junior year at of U of M and also passed her state test that makes her an official English teacher!  Her other good news that she is the new President of the Women's Glee Club. She will do a great job!  Brandon graduated from U of M and I am so glad  that Jeff and I could be there. We had a nice  time with the Cory's.  Mary spent a week at home before embarking on a trip  to Europe with Brandon.  They are having a great time and seeing so many wonderful places.  Click on the link in the right column, where they are sharing their trip with us!

Matthew now has a car down in Norman. Jeff drove the camry down and then flew home after spending a few days with him.  He is moved into his  summer dorm room, taking some summer classes and working at the OU Scene Shop in an apprenticeship.   He will move into his apartment with 3 other buddies in August. I sure miss that boy. Guess I will have to skype more. I need more pictures too!

Sure enjoyed having my mom here to help out after my transplant.  We had a nice time together and her help in the kitchen, cleaning and laundry is so appreciated.  We even enjoyed an event at Gilda's House!  I think it is time for her to come back.  Went home only a week ago after staying in the hospital with me when I had breathing problems.  Glad to say I am on the mend.

Better fold some laundry and get some sleep!
