Life goes on and on…..

23 Nov

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything here.  Life has been busy since last year when I spent a month in the hospital after a ruptured brain aneurysm.

Life is good.  All the headaches are gone after the surgery to place the two stents and two coils last November.  I recently went back to Milwaukee for my one year checkup and they threw in an angiogram just for fun.  After the angiogram I met with the surgeon and he told me see you in five years.  I was expected it to be an annual event.  God is so good!

I’m back working full-time for the past 9 months.  My oldest daughter got married and bought a home in October.  My youngest daughter will graduate from college on December 21.  We made our final college tuition payment the first week in November.  Twelve years of tuition payments were at times difficult to do but well worth getting all four of our kids through college with minimal debt.

Looking ahead my husband Dean and I will be taking a 8 day mission trip to Jamaica in July.  I can hardly wait for the trip.  It was something we’ve wanted to do for some time but college tuition made it impossible until now.

In Minnesota the weather is changing from cool to downright cold.  The lake was busy making ice last night and this morning.


Hope to be posting occasionally and catch up with all my favorite blogging buddies!

    I’m delighted to hear all your wonderful news, Jeanne.

    We think of you often . . . especially when we hear weather reports for your neck of the woods. Brrr . . .

      I may make it down your way in Jan, Feb or March. My sister is doing some software training just outside Orlando and said I could come down and share her hotel room while she is working. Don’t know which dates will work yet but plan on getting out of the cold.

        Once I figure out my schedule and where and when I will be I will let you know and try and line something up for a visit.

    We don’t see you around here much lately, so it was good to hear all your wonderful news Jeanne. Take care in your cold weather over there – the trip to Orlando sounds good, hope you take advantage of it and soak up some sun!

      Thanks Barb! It has taken so long to get back in the swing of things after being in the hospital. Feeling great these days and looking forward to a little bit of fun in the mix with work in the year ahead.

    Jeanne, it’s so nice to hear from you. How blessed you are to survive a brain aneurism ! Yes, God is good. I, too, was away from posting for some time after my husband had a massive stroke to comiplicate his Alzheimer’s. I lost him in October of 2012. I married again and am very happy. Also, the book I wrote, a Buddy for David, is in the publishing process. Welcome back to blogging. I hope to see your posts often.

    Hi and welcome back. Sorry to hear about your setbacks but sounds like everything is heading in the right direction. Is the house all finished?

      Everything is going great these days. The house is not finished yet but it is heading in the right direction with no more demolition and back in the rebuilding, finishing mode.

    It’s good to see you! How fun to take a mission trip now that your major monetary obligations are behind you.
