Hello! I know, I know....it's been a few days. It's just been super hectic around here this week.

First we were so glad to welcome home my cousin Ronnie for his two week leave from Iraq. We greeted him at the airport on Saturday, September 11, 2005. What a day to come home huh! Check out the video >HERE< . Anyways it was good to see him and he looked great. The whole family is getting together on Saturday for a huge party so everyone can see him while he's home.

I would also apprecaiate if you could please keep my uncle Russ in your prayers. He is the one I told you about that has the brain tumor. We had a bit of a scare on Tuesday night and I had to run and pick up my mom and get to Long Island Jewish hospital because he ended up thowing a massive clot to his lung. My aunt was very upset and was also asked to sign DNR papers. We went up to lend our support in any way we could. As it turns out, he had a greenfield filter put in to help stop any further clots. He is in ICU now and that's all I know.

Let's see what else...Oh Kaylee was bitten twice in the arm by a bee the day we went to my cousin Kathy's to see Ronnie. Poor thing her arm swelled so bad by late that evening and then some more the next day. But thankfully, she is doing much better and most of the swelling is gone now.

Alan and I have been busy in the yard. We lost a little bit of grass this year, I guess because of the extreme heat. So we had to turn some of the soil in the front and reseed. Geesh...I didn't think that would be so much work. Now I am just watering everyday and hoping to see little green buds soon!! LOL.
