One thing after another!

It seems like we can't get over one thing, before something else happens in our family..... My cousin Timothy died a few days ago (I just found out), at the age of 29. He died from complications of a heart transplant and kidney failure. I am just devastated! He was soooo young. But he stopped going to his dialysis and told his mom he did not want to live like that. His sister died at 37, just this April from Sickle Cell complications. My aunt jean must be in turmoil! She only has 3 children and the 3rd child is sick from sickle cell and is in a wheel chair at 33. After hearing this news, we got a call saying that my dh lil sister Tekoa was rushed to the hospital for possible intestinal blockage.... She may have to have surgery. She just had surgery 2 years ago, emergency surgery to remove a ruptured cyst from her ovaries.....has a nasty scar from it too. Now she may have to be cut again. Baptiste (my hubby) was a nervous wreck and still is.....To make matters worse today is his birthday. He said, he's just going to go to work. I was trying to get him to take off.....something he never does! His sick days just go to waste year after year...

On a happier note, the kids had an awesome first day of school. Jaree wasn't too thrilled that they did not "do anything".....lol. But, Jariel came home with homework. They are excited to be back in school and can't wait to start on a normal routine. I am excited and sad at the same time, it's so lonely when the kids are gone.....

Until next time....

I guess the old saying is true: When it rains, it pours. I'm so sorry to hear about all that. Sounds like your aunt has had a whole lot of heartache to deal with. I can't even imagine what that must be like.

I'll keep your family in my prayers.
