CU Freebie- and some pics

Only 4 weeks to go now, and feeling great, hoping the op has worked, it feels like it, but only time will tell. I have a new respect for people on crutches and in wheelchairs, even a normal day to day event becomes a task.

Jackson had his stitches out, but unfortunately had another growth removed from his neck, the size of a pea, we don't know yet if it is also the cancer, but they cut right down into his muscle and surrounding tissue to remove it all, although they said it was just under the skin, and not attached to anything. He is home and eating well.

Just a few more pics from our crazy day out with Kim and family!

Mark and the GirlsSuitcases anyone?Ali Posing
We flew to Cape Town this last weekend for Mark's folk's 50th Wedding Anniversary. I must say I got top class service at the airports, and we were even upgraded to business class at no extra charge. I designed the invitation, using only Kim's kits, she has so many gorgeous ones with gold in that were perfect.
It was great seeing all the family again, I even saw one of my nieces that I have not seen for about 14 years, she and her family immigrated to America.

I enjoyed looking at your pics! It looks like you are a "racing family" from one pic. If so, what kind of racing? My hubby was a drag racer(motorcycles) and we try to attend NHRA racing programs when we can, traveling all over the US. Oh I almost forgot to say "thank you" for the freebie! I got a little off track(no pun intended LOL)♥
