************UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE************
Well, I will make a long story short, Many changes have happened in my life these last 8 months....the man I was with, the one who I loved and made me happy, the one I thought I was going to be with for a long time decided otherwise, so for the first time in my life, I have my very own place and I am very happy. ( I dont even miss him) This past Thursday July 20th 2006 Jody and I were officially divorced...it was very emotional I cried so hard during the whole thing and so did Jody...after it was all over, we both embraced and cried and told each other how sorry we were and wished things had not happened the way they had, but that we both did and will forever love each other......BUT I AM SO HAPPY NOW....AND my daughter is expecting my grandson Braden Glen on Oct,13th! I also have a new look, so I am adding a few new very recent pictures....I also have a new email address too... I will try to stay in touch....I miss you all so very much and cant wait to come to another Texas dinner......I love you all.....

8/3/05 ******MUCH NEEDED UPDATE*****************
Where to begin, well as some of you know, my dh and I have been seperated for a while now, and I have moved to Bryan, Texas. I have been here for going on 6 weeks ( I think) 5 for sure. My dad passsed away 6/17/05 and it still is hurting me and will for a long time, but I know he is much better now, I am just so happy that he was surrounded by his loving family and that I got to stay up with him all night and take care of him. I did get a kiss from him, and that will forever be on my cheek and in my heart.
I have been very depressed and stressed lately. I have LOST more weight which I KNOW is due to all that depression and stress. I am eating, and eating a lot, but I HAVE GOT TO GET SOME WEIGHT BACK ON! I am down to 100 lbs. I have had 1 job since I moved here, I am going thru a temp.service and I start a great new job in the morning (8/4/05) and I was told it would be for the whole month of August, and that I will have another one to go to right after that one, soooooooo I hope so. When I am not working, is when I seem to get very down.
My daughter Christy is getting married in Sept. and I have been busy with that, and I am so happy and excited. I have to sing 2 songs in the wedding....just hope I can keep the tears back...lol.
I have had the best friends here, some of you know who you are, amd without OH, I would be LOST!! I am so grateful for all the prayers that I have recieved for my dad as well as myself, they meam so much to me, as you all do!!!!!!!! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart! There are just so many things to say, but that just about covers it for now. Please keep me in your prayers, seperation from your family is so dang hard, especially when you are MILES away...but we are doing well. I live with my best friend and have a beautiful room that is all mine, if you could see it you would know...with all the pictures and such.....lol.
I love you all.......and thank you all for all the great support and prayers....I am just overwelmed at times!
I will continue to take care of KIM, and try to let the stress and depression leave me......but man it is hard!
Enjoy the new pictures...I will always have pictures...and update them! Take care all....with all my love and hugs.....

This is my first love Steve, I named my son after him. I always thought we would be together, but I guess God had other plans. I was so happy to have had a son that I could name after him. His family and I are still best friends, his sister took this picture. 2/12/05 in Bryan Tx. I will forever love him..forever!

Surgeon: Stephanie Barnes, M.D
My first impression was that she knew what she was doing and I felt a strong trust. I have had one meeting with her and that was at the meeting for the surgery. My first office visit will be on April 8th. I will have all my pre-op done on that day. Such as her visit, the nutrionist, and the mental evaluation. I will have a busy day that day but it will be so worth it. Dr. Barnes helped me and my family out so much at the meeting. All our questions were answered and I felt more ready for the surgery itself. 8/19/04 TIME TO UPDATE THIS PART OF MY PROFILE.....I HAVE TO SAY....THAT DR. STEPHANIE AND JIM BARNES....ARE BY FAR THE BEST 2 SURGEONS THAT LOUISIANA HAS!! THEY ARE NOT ONLY YOUR DOCTOR, THEY BECOME YOUR FRIENDS AS WELL. I CANT IMAGINE HAVING GONE TO ANYONE ELSE. THEY TOOK EXCELLENT CARE OF ME AND STILL DO EVEN AFTER ALMOST 15 MONTHS POST. THEY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING, THEY UNDERSTAND HOW YOU FEEL, AND THEY MAKE SURE THAT EVERYTHING IS DONE PROFESSIONALY AND WITH COMPASSION.....I LOVE THEM DEARLY AND WOULD RECOMMEND THEM TO ANYONE...AND I HAVE! .....YOU CAN ALWAYS COUNT ON THEM.....THEY ARE FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL, AND NEVER EVER WOULD BE RUDE OR UNPROFESSIONAL! I LOVE THEM AND THANK THEM FOR ALL THEY HAVE DONE FOR ME!!!!
