Sue, Thank you so much for that post! I still do check the blog, and I have thought about starting to post updates about the family and how we are doing. Things have been pretty hard these past few weeks, but we are seeming to manage without her being here. Anne's birthday this year was a hard one, but we decided to get a cake from her favorite bakery, Graeter's. We have all been thinking about her a lot, especially since Christmas was her favorite holiday. We miss her so dearly. Sally is flying into town tomorrow, and we all couldn't be more excited! I have started a new job, so that leaves Sam to watch Jimmy while Doug and I are working, and it seems to keep everyone pretty occupied, which is good :) Again, thank you for your love and support!

Irene, Thank you so much for your kind words :) Today was especially tough for all of us, especially since she passed so recently. We did the best we could, and we made it work! I made a big Thanksgiving dinner for us, and we all enjoyed it. Love, Doug, Sally, Sam, Megan & Jimmy

I'm so glad that Megan created this, Anne. Yes, you do have a wonderful daughter-in-law who is being such a help to you during this difficult and painful time. I'm sure it's hard to think positively but Megan's last update, even though it had so many negatives, at least, with the chemo and radiation it sounds like the prognosis is better than you thought at first. And as Megan says, Jimmy is definitely a plus. I'll talk to you on Monday.

Anne, That is a lot for one person -- even you, Anne. You have always coped in difficult times, and I hope this finds you as comfortable a s possible and feeling loved. It sounds like your son provided you with a wonderful daughter-in-law. (Thanks for doing this, Megan. I'm glad Anne has you. ) I'm sending good thoughts to all of you. Best wishes m
