Final Farewel

Well folks after blogging since June 2013 sharing all my stories of my farm life, it saddens my heart to say that I am heading to a new place where the pain and pills are a distant memory.  I have enjoyed sharing my stories with you and receiving wonderful comments from family, friends and people I do not even know.  My downfall started a couple weeks ago when my gall bladder became very angry.  I went to the doctor to get some relief with medication.  That evening I got up in the middle of the night to take my pain meds, I got dizzy and fell in the kitchen.  I fractured my hip.  Bruce called the ambulance and they took me to Cherokee.  I ended up being transferred to Omaha.  It was decided to do a partial hip replacement.  And they also put a drain tube in my gall bladder.  Unfortunately that was not all that was going on in my body.  It was discovered that the cancer was in my spinal fluid and bone marrow.  When the doctor starting to explain what steps would have to be taken, which was two more types of chemo, and another bone marrow biopsy from my hip, I  decided that it was time to go home.  I am now home and resting peacefully, waiting for the good Lord to take me on that walk through those pearly gates.  Maybe the Lord can use a great Master Gardener.

Thanks to all of you for your support, kinds thoughts and prayers.

Love to all,
