Today I woke up feeling better. Still tired though. Kaitlyn was crabby this morning with Sally. When I woke up around 9, I took care of my baby girl and she wasn't crabby for me. I don't think she is still over from being sick from last week. I still do not have much of an appetite. Last night I kept thinking of different foods and just the thought would make me sick. Not like I wanted to think of them I just couldn't help it. I took a nausea pill and felt better. I had homemade tortilla shells with spray butter for dinner last night. It's one of the very few things that appeals to me right now. I want bland or sweets, the thought of meat doesn't go over to well. But last night around 9pm I finally told Sally I have been craving Sizzle steaks( steak- ums) and Suzie Q's. Sally went to the store and bought them for me. She actually bought home a generic brand cause they didn't have the brand I wanted.( I may have to rethink the Stracks and Van Tils the official grocery of Bill's Blog) Even after eating the sizzle steaks it made me sick. I feel like I am pregnant sometimes with the cravings. I didn't want her to go out in the dark but Sally is stubborn and doesn't listen to me half the time. Besides at that time Sally was able to out run me.

Michael's meeting didn't go the way we wanted to but it wasn't bad either. It's a good learning experience for him. Not that I agree with the results it is what it is and Michael is going to make the best of the situation.

This morning while Zachary was in the bathroom getting ready for school, Kaitlyn was in there sitting on her potty chair eating her vegi chicken pattie. Sally tried to get her out but she wanted to stay there and eat. A couple of minutes later Sally heard some splashing and went to see what was going on. Kaitlyn was playing in the toilet. I am sure some of you who are reading will say "Yuck!" but it really isn't as bad as what Zachary did when he was that age. Zachary was found in the bathroom with the toilet plunger against his face. He thought it was funny and didn't want to take it off of his face. If we could we would have gotten him a bleach bath. It took awhile before any of us wanted to kiss him.

I know some are concerned about me doing to much. I appreciate you thinking of me. Sally is always on my case as well. The major projects I need to do is a matter of heath concerns and safety for my family. If I wait to do it when I go back to work it will be harder on me. This is a shorter blog cause I did a lot of things that I wanted to do and some I didn't yet but , I will. It was the perfect day to me with it not being to hot and a nice breeze.

Thank you for the thoughts and kind words. I would like to ask all of you a favor. On Thursday I am having the appointment with the Liver specialist at U.I.C. about possibly having another surgery for the spot that was seen on my liver. I don't think I could handle it to well if he says I need surgery. The CT Scan result said everything is shrinking so I feel I could without the surgery. It was a small spot to begin with and now it is smaller. So please can you help with this. This is what I am thinking about a lot lately and it consumes a lot of what is on my mind.(what is left of it)Thank you and God Bless.


  1. Will pray you don't need surgery, Bill.

    Pastor Brian, a group from our church(Harvest), and I just got back from Uptown Baptist Church in Chicago where we helped feed the needy and homeless. It was an amazing experience that really taught me a valuable lesson about serving others.

    Would write more, but I need a nap before I go back to work.

    Good Night!
