Family Time...

  Daughter Angie (middle) gave a casual Easter dinner for family. Here she is with her children Jake and Sierra. Her husband might have been in the garage at this time or taking a nap. Not all my daughter were well enough to come to dinner.
 Daughter Karen came with hubby Jeff and her daughter Savannah.
 Ted and I came and had a great  time. There was plenty of good food and laughs.
  The great grandsons  Max and Luke look cute in their Easter ties. They did not come to the dinner at Angie's.
  The weather was nice enough for them to play outdoors in their backyard.
 Thursday, Ted goes into Francican Hospital in Indianapolis. He will receive five days of chemo in preparation for the bone marrow transplant. After five days he will get the transplant and possibly three more days of chemo to keep his body from rejecting the bone marrow. He is in a good frame of mind, staying up beat.  Please keep us in your prayers dear friends.  So thankful for our wonderful neighbors who will be taking care of things here.
  Hope all of you had family time this past weekend. Make time for family when ever you can. XO

    1. Thank you Linda. I am so grateful for all of you that I have met thru blogging and that have become my family. We are eager to get into this battle and come out healthy on the other side. It is truly in the hands of God. He will guide all involved, is my prayer. I am so thankful for everyone's prayers and good wishes. I had such a good time with two of my daughters and their families. I see them all here and there. We just can't get around too many sick ones at this time. The next two months are going to be rough. I have to think , one day at a time. Blessings to you and LD, we love you right back. :):) . xoxo, Susie
