RIP Our Sweet Ann

Dear Friends,

It is with great sadness that I must let you all know that Ann passed away peacefully in her sleep yesterday morning. She physically felt good for the past couple of weeks, and for that I am thankful. I know how much she meant to all of you. And she loved her blogging friends with all her heart. I know that her strong Christian faith, her sweetness, and her humour will always be an inspiration to all of us. I will miss her. We will miss her. I know she is now without pain and smiling down on her beloved family and friends. Our prayers and thoughts are with Ann's family. Her special gifts will live on in them and all of us forever.

The memorial will take place:
Tuesday, June 7, 2011 at 7pm
First Babtist Church of Warsaw

Kaufman, TX 75142

We love you Anniepoo!

Your devoted friend forever,
Laura

HELLO MY SWEET FRIENDS

Hello everyone...................................Well,I just spent another ten days in the hospital.When they were running test to see if anything new had popped up they found what they are calling a "pocket'.
So my dr said he cannot go in and get it.So--------------------------he would put me in the hospital and run antibiotics thru me to see if hopefully it was an infection and he could get rid of it that way.
He said he had no idea how long it would take.i'm thinking 3 days.Wrong.10 days...........................Man was it boring,but worth it.i feel like I did before I ever got sick.I am up doing everything except vsccuuming.Who wants to do that anyway.haha
God has sent me some wonderul drs.i am so happy.This dr is great.He argues until he gets what he wants for his patients.
If i keep going this way,I will be on this planet for quite some time.Who would've thunk it a few months ago?????????????????????????????????????????????

WELL,HELLO-----------------------

Hello everyone.You have no idea how
wonderful it is to be able to sit here and
blog again.I have just about forgotten how.
Seriously.
I am on my way again to a terrific comback.
Thanks to our sweet Lord.I was sick for weeks
after the chemo .I could not feel better.After a
couple of trips to the dr and one to the e.r I had
given up.They thought it was too much oxygen or
the
chemo.
Thank God for my little daughter.She was not
willin to give up.She called my lung dr and took me in.
I was really sck.getting only half the oxygen i needed.
The tank i had with me doesn't flow without being inhaled
into.I remember little,but I do remember telling her i was too tired
to puff.
I can only imagine how she was feeling.In Dallas traffic
with a sick mom.
We made it to the dr.He quickly stepped in.
I was in the er and icu for 8 days.I only remember very little.
But this is the good part.I made it and--------------------this dr has started
doing the operation I had.It was in Houston,remember?It was a lungreduction.
This is where people like me who have copd or emphazemia
can have another chance at life.Ev eryone but Houston turned me down.
And Hoston would've,but they found the cancer and because they had nothing to loose they went in to get the cancer.Can you believe the cancer is gone?Gone!!I asked the Lord to reach in and get it and throw it away.He did.
Well,i have broken all kinds of records and am still breaking them.At the hospital my dr was interducing me to some more drs telling them how remarkable i am.
We all know I am not remarkable,it is God that has done it all.
I am a puny little thing.But i can see where God is using me to give more
people some more time here.
My dr also put me on a machine at night.I look just like a mosquito.ha
And i hated it at first.Now,I love it.It helps me breathing muscles rest at night
to save energy for the day time.The air that comes out of it is so creamy and rich.I know that sounds crazy.
I know my blog has been full of sad stuff so long and i will probaly only read yalls from now on.But i am so happy to be back among you all.I want to thank you all for standing by me and praying for me.God is here and he never lets us down.

Update on Ann

Hi Everyone,

Ann had to be rushed to the hospital several days ago due to complications with her COPD. We're hoping she'll be able to come home in the next day or two.
She has been very ill from the radiation/chemo treatments and has not been up to blogging. Her body is weak and she's had a hard time breathing. But the good news ...the last test showed NO CANCER!! Now we pray they can get her COPD under control so that her body can recover from the treatment.
She loves you all!! I know she and her family would appreciate any prayers.

Laura

HELLO

Hello.Ihave a quick very important,to
me,announcement to make today.I am
finished with my chemo.My white cells were
low,so he stopped me 2 days early.But I got
5 regular doses.He says thats about normal.
I thought until at the last he was taking baby
'steps with me.But he wasn't, full doses.So thats
why we finished early.
And today at 1:30 i will be taking my last
radiation treament.yea.........
Next,my doctors want me to just rest for a month.
Then we'll take a p.e.t.scan and see what happens.
Of course it will all be gone.Jesus took it out quite
a while ago.
I hope everyone is getting ready for a warm and
wonderful Christmas.I have learned a huge lesson
from this or should i say "re-learned'.I was in a near -fatal
car accident about two months after moving to Dallas 25 yrs ago..
I had head injuries(yes,see you were right.you knew
there was something wrong up there.)and a crushed ankle.
My health insurance had expired I think just days before that
so i had to pay cash for my Dr and hospital.The young girl that hit me
didn't even have insurance.So Christmas shrunk a little
that year.Iwas telling my kids I was sorry.My son said.
"mom this is the best Christmas of all'.'i said.why?he said.
"because you are here with us".
That brought a tear to my eye really quick.I have always
been so blessed.
