In the somewhat belated spirit of Thanksgiving – a brief update.

On August 22nd, we set off for Toronto. My father in law’s unveiling took place on the 24th. In his last days, he expressed how much he would have loved his entire family to be together in one place. Although charged with a lot of emotion, we were all happy that we were in fact all getting together to honor his memory. All DDTF’s siblings, their spouses and the grandchildren were gathering for the first time in close to ten years.

Later that evening, it became necessary for me to be rushed into the ER. Without any warning or any previous problems of this nature I found myself dealing with three nasty kidney stones. I had no clue what a challenging ordeal was about to unfold for me and now, almost four months later I am starting to regain some semblance of my life back pre-the-stone-age. This has been one of the most awful experiences I have ever had to endure.

There are no words to adequately express my thanks to DDTF … my amazing husband, Ross … my amazing son. They got me through this as they do everything else. I thank you both and I love you both.
