Leaving On A Jet Plane :)

Tomorrow morning at 5 am, I leave for Calgary to take a plane home to Thunder Bay.

My sister Debra surprised me by buying me the ticket as she knows how poor I am! , Debra is also bringing home her new boyfriend of almost a year to meet the family, poor guy !

I need this break so bad, things have been overwhelming for me lately, Kort's spondylosis, Tate getting so sick, and not being able to get my Flatcoat puppy are just some of the things.

It will be the first Thanksgiving we will all be together in a very long time.  We have alot to celebrate, my niece Sherri just got engaged, she is the only child of my older brother Brian.  Her wedding is next year on New Year's Eve, it will be a very happy time.

We are also possibly walking into some bad news though.  My middle sister Joanne who was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2011 had a bone scan done yesterday.  She has excruciating pain in her pelvis, she will get the results tomorrow as to whether the cancer has gone into her bones.   We will take any prayers for her.

I am also worried about leaving my dogs, they will be with Amanda which is wonderful, but Tate is still so sore at times, I worry about him.  Kort is a mommas boy, I know he will have fun with all his friends, but I know he will miss me.

At any rate I really do need to go away,  just be with family.  I can hardly wait to get there :)

I'm sorry that your happy trip to spend Thanksgiving with your family is tinged with worries :( The boys will be okay--it's only a week and they are in good hands with Amanda. Praying for your sister. It is good that you are having this time together.
