We had a wonderful Christmas with the Miller family in Mississippi. We partied and ate from house to house and all of my in-laws rallied around me, encouraged me and loved on me. I have known and loved this family for almost 33 years and have never felt closer to them than I do now. […]


I have decided that I do not like to wait. Ever since my biopsy, I have been waiting. Waiting to hear about the pathology report. Then waiting to talk to the surgeon. Then waiting to go to Baylor. Now I am waiting to hear the results of my PET scan. One of my doctors told […]
