Although I don't really have much to tell I thought I'd let you know how things are going. I went for my CT scan(s) last week. I don't remember them being as grueling the last time I had one. It seems the appointment was not made correctly...long to short, I needed 3 scans not 1. This equates to 2-1/2 hours of laying completely still in a tube with a sound similar to a jack hammer pounding next to my head and one huge migraine by the time I got out of there. For all my trouble I got a token CD with images of my insides. I was scheduled for a consultation with the doc this Tuesday but got a call today that it was re-scheduled to Wednesday. I continue to pray for peace and strength as well as perfect health. No matter what the tests say, I know that God is good all the time.
2009 came in with a bang...literally, our friend Tony brought a little cannon and packed it full of gun powder. I'm sure it shook every window in the neighborhood. Unfortunately I couldn't get any photos of that but here are a few of our gathering. We also lit a paper lantern thing that Jo had and it floated over the houses into the next neighborhood before it extinguished itself. Mike made some explosive chili and everyone else brought goodies to share. We played Wii, ping pong, and Apples to Apples. Michael Maher even played us a little music. It was an awesome way to bring in the New Year.
