holly Updates

Hello all!!! A very Happy early holidays to come to each of you.
I just thought I would give everyone who wants to know some updates.
I had gallbladder surgery in February. We went to the Highland games in July. I am putting up my fall deco and counting down the days until I can put up my Christmas and winter deco. My mother in law has lung cancer and she will be going in for her surgery on October the 4th to have the top of her right lung removed. Hubby is working out daily as am I. He has to redo his PAT for his job and while the workouts seem to be helping a bit, he is being very pessimistic. I am currently taking a hiatis from college to get a job subbing for a bit. We will be working on getting our house in the blue ridge as soon as we can. Both of us are tired of living in a city type atmosphere and want to be someplace we can breathe and stretch our arms without running the risk of slapping a neighbor.
Hopefully everyone is having a great year and will do even better in the next. I am looking forward to all the cards and the exchanging of ornaments with my partner.
MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

PAT is Physical Aptitude Test. Basically he has to WALK 2 miles in 32 minutes (his last time was 34 minutes, so he didnt pass . ) He hasn't been in the greatest shape for a long time but I am slowly getting him there.

OK UPDATE>

Mom in law made it through ok. They did find cancer but have to appraoch that later (she is 81). They had her up and walking around this morning and she is on a liquid diet for now. Barring any complications she will be home Wednesday (tomorrow) at the earliest. I will try to keep everyone updated as I can. I really appreciate all the warm wishes and thoughts everyone here has given us over the years and to be honest it is more than I can say for people we actually have contact with IRL.

Ok now they are saying she MIGHT be released THursday. I think she requested this because Wednesday was a bit too early for her personally, which I even thought was too early. THey have her on a breathing machine that she has to use every 6 minutes each hour until she goes to sleep. She will be on this until THrusday morning. She said she isnt in as much pain as she was last night. Thank you all so much for your concern and well wishes. Mr. HJ says a BIG BIG BIG thanks to all of you.
