Hi!   I'm a mother of 3 who is LDS.   I draw great inspiration from my sisters of faith, be they Christian, Muslim, and Jewish.    It is great to work together and let our maker work miracles in our lives.   I feel so blessed and inspired from the stories of faith walking in God's light.

May God continue to bless and heal us, watch over and protect our loved ones, and help us be a beacon of hope.

What the heck?  Just noticed your post, Ray--so good of you to revive the thread!  Now I have NO excuse for following your lead and catching everyone up on stuff. Thanks, again, Ray!  I'll post more after church tomorrow.  Have a good Labor Day weekend, everyone!

Susan, hey darlin'! So glad to hear from you. Things are ok here. Life is keeping me on my toes, that's for sure! It's only mid- November and I'm so sick of Ohio. Don't tell Joanne, but I think we may have to come move in with her just to stay warm! Lol *wink*

How are you, and your family?

Hey! What's this about you moving in with me, Ray? Funny you'd mention this now when I'm looking in my overflowing garage and wishing someone like you were here to help me sort it out. Your "room" is available till Tuesday, but then it'll be taken by my son and his family for a few days. I'll send them packin' if you'll help me the garage--ha! Happy

Susan--glad to see you posting and sounding good as ever. Hope your daughter is still enjoying being a newlywed!

Ha, right Joanne- that's the way I will win Austin's respect... Kicking him out of his room. Lol. You don't want my help in your garage, because I will make you get rod of things!

So, I had an interesting visit with my mother in law just now. She told me she doesn't like my haircut, but in showing her pictures of my vacation she started asking questions about the L.A. Temple. She never asks any questions, so that was a nice treat.

Have a WONDERFUL weekend everyone!

hey girls how r you all???  I am going dog sledding the end of the month. Can't beat the snow so I will have fun in it. But the I must confess, Claire and I will go to Florida the end of March. Air boat and alligators...fun fun.

Keeping busy. Cancer has traveled:(. That is what metastatic does. It is in small amounts in c7, lung, rib and still many many nodes. Feeling good and tolerating chemo. Not many chemos left for me and I am blowing through them pretty quick...but in the meantime...there is a lot of fun to be had.

Stay well girls

Hey, Susan!  Once again, it's good to hear from you!  I'm feeling WAAAAY guilty for not keeping this thread going :/  You're a sweetie to let us know how you're doing.  Dog-sledding?????  Wow--you've got yet another awesome thing to add to your list of accomplishments!  I hope you're also keeping up on your piano playing.  Music is such wonderful therapy and soothes the troubled mind and spirit :)  I've been busy teaching 38 piano students and trying to organize all the junk in my garage.  It's getting better (no thanks to Ray's help--ha!),  but I still need to down-size things like.....wedding gifts from 1981 that I've never used (how embarrassing to admit!).  I've got my grandkid toys, Christmas decorations and the 8 containers of ribbon bolts from my bow business all organized in big clear tubs so I can see what the heck is in all of them. I do feel a lot better now :)

My middle daughter is expecting again--a surprise that is welcomed by all--but is feeling sick a lot of the day and night.  Wish I could help her but she's hundreds of miles away in Washington--boo!  Her son will be turning one next week and needs lots of care.  I hope he's easy to handle while she deals with morning sickness.  

Youngest daughter is working at Bruxie's (waffle sandwhiches, etc.) and Hollister (teen-type clothing) to earn money for college in the Fall.  We'll be official empty nesters then--whoo-hoo!  She's waiting to hear which BYU campus accepts her application.  Probably Idaho, but she's hoping for Provo, Utah. 

19 yr-old son is serving a 2 yr. mission in Arizona and LOVING it!  He's currently in Chandler and got to take some people to the Gilbert Temple open house last week.  He said it was amazingly beautiful--felt like heaven inside.  He's maturing, spiritually, mentally and physically while he serves others.  I'm very proud of him and look forward to his emails every Monday.  We got to talk to him on Christmas day via Skype for only 45 minutes.  My husband and I cried after we "hung up."  We miss him but know he's doing the Lord's work and becoming a better person because of it.  

Oldest son will be moving to Nevada after finishing his MBA this year.  He did an internship for Amazon last summer and got a job offer right away, so I guess they like him. Wish it wasn't such a demanding job during the holidays, though.  He gets one day off, then it's back to work.  Amazon never sleeps!  They'll be selling their cute little old house in Provo where they've been raising their 3 little girls, so if anybody is interested in a cheap house, let me know! 

 Oldest daughter living in Iowa had a nightmare experience flying to Argentina to meet up with her husband on a  business trip 3 weeks ago. Her plane got caught in a storm when trying to land in Buenos Aires.  Part of the right wing blew off and flew by her window as she watched sparks and listened to grown men, screaming as everyone was tossed around in the Delta plane!  They made an emergency landing in Uraguay where they waited for another flight for almost a day!  She was grateful to be alive, though, and atrributes it to the Mission Training Center Presidency from our church who happened to be on board the same filght, reporting for service in Argentina.  They were blessed and protected, so the rest of the passengers were, too (in our opinion ;)  I sure wish I could see my daughter's 3 kids plus my other grands more often.  It's really hard, living so far away from them.  

It was GREAT having Ray and her son for a visit last November.  What a treat! So nice to finally meet and actually see each other in person. Her son is absolutely adorable, and Ray is beautiful, inside and out.  She was a delight to entertain and take around my neck of the woods.  The weather was perfect, too--sunny and warm enough for most outdoor activities. Friendships made on this board are the silver lining of this trial of mortality that we share, and meant to last forever :)

Good wishes to all, and blessings to you, Susan, as you continue to enjoy every thing good that this beautiful world can offer!

Welcome, Windwalker! Hope your surgery goes well and you receive the best of care with your treatment. Regarding General Conference next week--I'm with you.  Can't wait!  The General Women's broadcast this Sat. is something I'm looking forward to, as you probably are. too.  I remember recovering from surgery, watching Oct. Conf. in 2010.  It really gave me a boost and increased my faith :)  Keep posting here so we can get to know you.  Hope more LDS BCO members find us and our group grows again!

Hi Joanne, we finally got nice weather here in the Midwest.  Yeah us !

I am walking in the chicago breast cancer walk in May. If there is anyway you guys could support me, that would be great. If not, just think of me on the 31st of May walking 40 miles in 2 days...I hope I am not still walking on day three...lol

You can go on the avon site for chicago. I am under Susan Triner or the team name qwirkle. 

Thanks guys

Susan! How nice to hear from you. So sorry it has taken me a while to respond. Just had BMX surgery last week. In pain, but will be fine.

How are preparations for the walk? Is your daughter or anyone doing it for you. You will find many mixed emotions on these boards about walks, and fundraising events. I will admit, I am not as "pink" passionate as I was before dx, but I think it is a great thing to do. I did the 60 mile walk the summer before my dx and it was an awesome experience. Good luck. How is the family?

nice to hear from u too mamma ray. I used to be very indifferent about pink and the walks. Did one 8 years ago. Over the last year and a half I have lost 5 friends to cancer. So now I walk, just cause I can. No more no less. I have a friend walking with me. Hate to ask people to fundraise. I have gotten up to 15 miles. Not sure yet if I can walk a marathon the first day or not. My knees r pretty sore right now from training. Claire can't do it with me, nor can my hubby, they both have bad backs..lol. I think I am in better walking shape then they are, go figure!  

How r u feeling after surgery?  I hope you r feeling much better now. And how is your wonderful son? I think summer is finally here so u can do fun stuff outside now :)

Hope all is well with everyone .

Susan,

15 miles is great. When I was training I only got up to 12 or 13 in a day, but was able to do the 23 miles each day without much trouble. The energy of the people around will help so much.

My son is doing well, thank you! We are hoping to go to Niagara Falls in a couple weeks if I feel up to it. I'm doing ok after surgery. I know it could be so much worse, but the pain has been worse then expected. Just got my last two drains out Monday and one became rather infected, so I am on medicine for that. I am just glad to be able to take a LONG shower and soak in the tub if I want.   

Thanks for checkin in. Think of you often. Take care.

hope u have a great time at the falls. Never seen it, but I would like to, on the Canadian side.

I do hate those drains...wanted to rip them out myself. I got infected too. I I do remember how great it felt to be able to let the water run everywhere in the showers. Oh, how easy it is to not realize something so simple is such a big deal until we can't do it for awhile.  

Looking forward to the walk. A friend from grammar school is doing it with me and a fairly new friend that went dogsledding with me this February is going.

Hope your weather is better then here. We are all going to become ducks pretty soon. So much rain and dampness.

Feel well and have fun....susan

Hey ladies,

Is everyone enjoying summer? Our season has been very busy already. For some reason I have been in a funk today. I got some frustrating news from one of my dr's yesterday and I can only sigh. I came here to vent though I realize this probably isn't the most appropriate place to do it. I have my implant exchange surgery scheduled for August and I was finally feeling that I could relax and start putting my heart issues. All I want to focus on right now is my family, my calling at church, and my pathetic little garden.

Ok, I'm done now. On a fun side note, we were able to have our fence installed and have already set up the kid pool for Jacob. Love watching him have fun.    

Hope you are all wonderful!
