Well guys I am back in the hospital here in Little Rock. I had an abcess develop near a bone in my pelvis so I am just waiting to see if they are going to drain it or just put me on antibiotics. I know I will come home with the IV antibiotics again (or at least I think I will).
I just wanted to give a quick update and will update more later.

Hello everybody, sorry for the long absence. Things really haven't changed much around here, finally got to stop the hyperbaric treatments, but still having to do the daily wound dressing changes. These are really starting to get old, but with everything so open still, they are still required. Poor Billy will probably have a nursing degree by the time we get these wounds healed up.
I got to go to a Splitcoast Stampers get together at Memphis this last weekend. My friend Sonya was nice enough to drive me up there, and we had a really good time. I am hoping to get some pictures of all the stuff we made up on my stamping blog by tomorrow, please check them out if you get a chance.
Also, if you get a chance, please check out our friend Jason (or Jase as Nashville wanted him to go with a different name) myspace page. They just finished shooting their first music video and you can watch it there. We are all so proud of Jason and Kara (his wife) they have worked so hard to get where they are and deserve everything. If you like the song, please call your local radio stations (country) and request it. We are all hoping that they break into the top 40 soon.
Hope you all have a great week.

Hey guys, sorry for the long absence, but having some issues. My wounds have opened up and are infected. I started seeing a wound specialist on Thursday and they started me with specific wound changes and hyperbaric treatments. The hyperbaric treatments are not really fun, but what do you do, have to have them done. I will have to go to Little Rock 5 days a week for a couple of weeks, and then they will look at things again. I am sure this is not a shock to everyone since I had so many problems with my mastectomy, but sure was hoping for an easier ride this time. Will update more later.

Sorry guys!!!!!

Sorry guys that the updates stopped, we had to change hotels to find me a recliner to sleep in, found one but lost our internet connections, ugh!!!! I finally got to come home yesterday, and needless to say, I am VERY sore. Wanted to at least let you all know that I am still alive and kicking (slowly that it) and will updated again in a day or two.

Love you all

Talk about bad luck!!!

Well, we leave for Dallas soon, and looks like we will be driving right through a hurricane, go figure!!!!! Hopefully we will just run into a lot of rain and nothing else. We have to leave early Tuesday since I have an appointment with my doctor at 2:00, so through the rain we will have to go.

Only 5 more days!!!!

Well the big day is getting closer, hard to believe it is almost time to leave for Dallas. We will be leaving here after we get the kids on the bus Tuesday morning, I have an appointment to see the doctor on Tuesday afternoon. My surgery is scheduled for 7:30 Wednesday morning, and they told us it should take between 10-12 hours, wow!!! I will be at Medical City Hospital there in Dallas, and will hopefully have someone update this site when they can. It may be Thursday before anyone can, but feel free to call the hospital if you would like. Not sure what info they will give out, but guess you can try.
Please remember me and my family in your prayers as it will be as hard on my family as me. My kids are a little nervous about mom being so far away from home, but they do understand that I will have to go there. The boys are kinda excited that mom will finally have boobies again (ladies you know how men are about boobs, lol), I think they are just ready for a little cushion when they want to snuggle with mom.
If you have not had a chance to yet, please check out my friend Jason's band, their link is on the side (Singletree) you can hear their current release, and are starting to get some major air time. If you like country music and like the song, please call your local radio station and request it, Jason is a great guy and has worked so hard to get where they are. I would appreciate any requests that you could make on their behalf.
Off to bed for now
