Just a quick entry to let you all know that Lis is doing fine. We went to the doctor’s today and she got her blood checked and everything is fine. Her counts are good and she’s able to be out in public, which includes my 10-year high school reunion this weekend, without worrying about getting sick.
We did talk to Dr. Congdon about the care we received at the Monroe hospital and he said he wouldn’t have told us to go there since they’re not used to dealing with her type of cancer (psst…it’s leukemia). Oh well!
Today is my grandparents 49th anniversary. Wowsers! That’s awesome, especially in this day in age when everyone loves a good divorce. It’s nice for Lis and I to be able to look up to my grandparents and my parents (29 years) and see how long they’ve been together. They seem to be a rare breed these days. Nowadays everyone seems to have a stepbrother or step-mom or heck, even a ½ Grandma. By the time Lukas is in school the kids around him will have 4-different moms and 6-different dads (how that works out, I dunno). It makes us sick and I won’t go off on it now, but I’m just curious to where has the family gone? Why do we seem to be the minority having parents still married to each other? Why do people seem to get divorced faster than I can change my clothes? Is it because people are afraid of change and everyone wants that “perfect” love when it doesn’t exist? Why is it that when I mention that my parents have been married for 29-years that people think it’s wonderful? People change, times change, you have to change to deal with the changes in a marriage. Sorry went off on it anyway. I know sometimes you get mixed up with the wrong person but are you getting to know the person before you marry them? Just one of those things that bother me. That friggin’ word DIVORCE.
Anyway, CONGRATULATIONS Grandma and Grandpa, you’re a dying breed, one that is becoming more and more extinct. Here’s to 49 more years. Um..sure. But I am hoping my parents can survive long enough to break the World Record of 86 years. Go Pa and Ma!
