update on me....

Hi everyone. It has been a long, long time since I posted anything as I haven't felt that I had much advice to offer these past few months.
I have followed the posts and have prayed for everyone. This disease is a bear but I know that it can be beat and pray for a cure for ALL cancers.

For those of you that know me, know that we were blessed with a surprise pregnancy shortly after my father's passing. Well, she has finally arrived. Our daughter was born on Friday, July 29th at 1017 am and weighed 8 lbs 4 oz and was 21 inches. She is a beautiful, healthy baby. She brings me such joy... it makes me sad that dad is not here to enjoy her. He would be so excited to have a granddaughter to love and spoil. No matter what, I do know that he is watching over us.

Life is good. My daughter is a gift to all of us, so much more precoius that I ever imagined. I never fell in love so quickly in my life.

I have posted a picture of her. Not sure how to post others but wanted all of you to meet my miracle baby.

Please take care of yourselves.... stay strong and kick cancer's a$$!!

Warm regards,
