  1. Thank you all so very much!❤️
  2. My dad passed away yesterday from complications brought on by chemo. At the time of his passing, he was cancer free. Words fail me to adequately express what he meant to me, but this picture perfectly reflects our relationship. We had such a sweet father/daughter bond. He was my champion, protector, and source of wisdom even to the end. Recently I overheard him tell his friend that I was a part of him. Just the day before his death, he told me he loved me. It was my privilege to be his daughter because he was a man of deep character, integrity, and faith. It was my honor to serve him the last few months and days of his life. We are relieved and comforted by the fact that he no longer has medical limitations and that he is in the arms of Jesus. I love you, Daddy, always and forever.

  4. Yes, surgiversary tomorrow. As of now I've lost 89 lbs, a little behind the curve.
  5. Simply beautiful! Enjoy your vacay!
  6. Back on TT after a while. Dad had a medical emergency and required constant bedside monitoring for a month. He's doing better now but has congestive heart failure as a side effect from chemo. I applied for and got a teaching job close to them, so I'll be living with them to help out. I'm off to church and didn't check tags for brands, but everything is a size 12 or large. I'm off steroids and have maintained my weight loss during major stress,which is a victory for me. I'm 35 lbs to goal and am getting my head back in the game. Hugs and Happy Sunday, y'all!
  7. Awesome, Tom! Just awesome.
  8. Wore this to church on Mother's Day. Willie Smith capris, size 12, Twenty-one satin top, size large, and crocheted cardigan, size l. Hanging in there. Almost off steroids, yay. Maintained weight loss for the most part. Gained three lbs total. Getting back to normal.
  9. It took me a good two weeks to feel mostly back to normal. Your doc will be able to examine your healing, but if you're like me, it takes time.
  10. Hooray!
  11. I'm glad you're ok. How scary.
  12. I agree. You are right to explore this awesome tool. God bless your sister, also.
  13. I'm curious how old your sister is. I'd hate to think it's too late for her to turn things around. Good for you for taking back control of your life.
  14. Welcome back! It takes courage to get real with yourself and others.
  15. Oooh! Mama loves! Those silk pants are are to die for...
