For Papa and Kacky...










...as requested...

After a long day in Houston at MD Anderson for his post-op appointment, Dad learned that his tumor surgery was not as successful as docs had first thought. Instead of removing what they had thought was 90% of the tumor, his MRI's showed that only 60-70% had been removed. On top of that, his prolactin levels were also back up, which means that the tumor is continuing to grow. The positive side to this is that he can go back on his meds to stop the growth. But the downside is the yucky side effects of the meds. But, if anyone can push through this, Dad will. I know he will. After all, he has mucho mondo amounts of tractor rides he has to give to Tripp, so he BETTER keep pushing through ;)

Check out Anna Lynn's new "do." My little "just turned 5" mini-me has turned into a tween. All in the short time of a 30 minute hair cut. Not sure how that happens with a simple haircut, but it did. I don't even WANT to known what happens when she starts wearing make-up...oh dear...
