Missed Everyone and Hope ALL is Well!

First an Update on Jaxson~ This kid is my hero!
 The Second Transplant has took and his cells are starting to grow. Thanks Everyone for your  prayers for this little guy.

This is a recent picture of him holding his first pet...Can you guess what it is? 
He can't be around "germs" until his immune system is full force. But everything is looking good.
I have a feeling God has Great Plans for his future.

Second thing on my list is to Thank  the one's that have sent me emails  concerned about my well being and the "Where the Hell are you " messages  also  :-)

I've been busy moving into Paula's Place (only a few pics there but I will add more later) It's amazing what you accumulate in 17 years of living in one spot...It truely was time for a change for me.

Also going on a Vacation in a few days BUT I hope to catch up with all of your blogs soon.

Cancel your Credit Cards BEFORE you die

A family member placed a call to Citibank.
Here is the exchange:
Family Member: 'I am calling to tell you she died back in January.'
Citibank: 'The account was never closed and the late fees and charges still apply.'
Family Member: 'Maybe you should turn it over to collections.'
Citibank: 'Since it is two months past due, it already has been.'
Family Member: So, what will they do when they find out she is dead?'
Citibank: 'Either report her account to frauds division or report her to the credit bureau, maybe both!'
Family Member: 'Do you think God will be mad at her?'
Citibank: 'Excuse me?' Family Member: 'Did you just get what I was telling you - the part about her being dead?'
Citibank: 'Sir, you'll have to speak to my supervisor.'

Supervisor gets on the phone:
Family Member: 'I'm calling to tell you, she died back in January with a $0 balance.'
Citibank: 'The account was never closed and late fees and charges still apply.'
Family Member: 'You mean you want to collect from her estate?'
Citibank: (Stammer) 'Are you her lawyer?'
Family Member: 'No, I'm her great nephew.' (Lawyer info was given)
Citibank: 'Could you fax us a certificate of death?'
Family Member: 'Sure.' (Fax number was given)

After they get the fax:
Citibank: 'Our system just isn't setup for death. I don't know what more I can do to help.'
Family Member: 'Well, if you figure it out, great! If not, you could just keep billing her. She won't care.'
Citibank: 'Well, the late fees and charges will still apply.'
(What is wrong with these people?!?)
Family Member: 'Would you like her new billing address?'
Citibank: 'That might help....'
Family Member: ' Odessa Memorial Cemetery , Highway 129, Plot Number 69.'
Citibank: 'Sir, that's a cemetery!'
Family Member: 'And what do you do with dead people on your planet???'
And you wondered why Citi Bank needed help from the Feds?

It's that time of year AGAIN

At  the end of the tax year, the IRS office sent an inspector to audit the books  of a local hospital. While the IRS agent was checking the books, he turned  to the CFO of the hospital and said,"I notice you buy a lot of bandages.  What do you do with the end of the roll when there's too little left to be  of any use?"
"Good question ," noted the CFO. "We save them up and send  them back to the bandage company and every once in a while, they send us a  free roll." "Oh," replied the auditor, somewhat disappointed that his unusual question had a practical answer. But on he went, in his obnoxious way.?"What about all these plaster purchases? What do you do with what's left over after setting a cast on a patient?"
"Ah, yes," replied the CFO, realizing that the inspector was trying to trap him with an unanswerable question. "We save it and send it back to the manufacturer and every so often they will send us a free bag of plaster." "I see," replied the   auditor, thinking hard about how he could fluster the know-it-all CFO.
"Well," he went on, "What do you do with all the remains from the  circumcision surgeries?"
"Here, too, we do not waste," answered the CFO.  "What we do is save all the little foreskins and send them to the IRS  office, and about once a year they send us a complete prick."

Male Sensitivity

The room was full of pregnant women with their partners. The class was in full swing. The instructor was teaching the women how to breathe and was telling the men how to give the necessary help and assurance to their partners at this stage of the pregnancy.

She said, "Ladies, remember that exercise is good for you. Walking is especially beneficial. It strengthens the pelvic muscles and will make delivery that much easier." Just pace yourself, make plenty of stops and try to stay on a soft surface like grass or a path."

She looked at the men in the room, "Gentlemen, remember -- you're in this together. It wouldn't hurt you to go walking with your partner. In fact, that shared experience would be good for you both."

The room suddenly got very quiet as the men absorbed this information. After a few moments, a man named Chuck at the back of the room slowly raised his hand.

"Yes," said the Instructor.

"I was just wondering if it would be all right if she carries a golf bag while we walk?"

A New Picture & Update

This is Jax a few days ago...Can you guess what he's dressed up as?

Since he's had the transplant he's had quite a few rough days. Infections have set up in his port twice and his cell count has been staying at Zero. The Dr's. were right that up until the time of the transplant was the easy part. Although it wasn't easy for Jaxson having to go through the Radiation and Chemo at the same time. Now we are praying HARD for those cells to start growing to make this transplant a success and for Jaxson to start feeling better. He's been such a trooper. Jax's  wasn't fond of wearing a mask every time he stepped out of his room but he did adapt to it.  It's a must to help prevent infections that his body  can't fight off and he loves to get out of his room and play with the other kids and now he has a new Buddy.

He has to share this dog with the other kids but he's OK with that too :)

This is GREAT & just another reason I don't work out!! :)

If you read this without laughing out loud, there is something wrong with
you . This is dedicated to everyone who ever attempted to get into a
regular workout routine.

Dear Diary,
For my birthday this year, I purchased a week of personal training at the
local health club.

Although I am still in great shape since being a high school football
cheerleader 43 years ago, I decided it would be a good idea to go ahead
and give it a try.

I called the club and made my reservations with a personal trainer named
Christo, who identified himself as a 26-year-old aerobics instructor and
model for athletic clothing and swim wear.
Friends seemed pleased with my enthusiasm to get started! The club
encouraged me to keep a diary to chart my progress.
Started my day at 6:00 a.m. Tough to get out of bed, but found it was
well worth it when I arrived at the health club to find Christo waiting
for me. He is something of a Greek god-- with blond hair, dancing eyes,
and a dazzling white smile. Woo Hoo!!

Christo gave me a tour and showed me the machines... I enjoyed watching
the skillful way in which he conducted his aerobics class after my
workout today. Very inspiring!

Christo was encouraging as I did my sit-ups, although my gut was already
aching from holding it in the whole time he was around. This is going to
be a FANTASTIC week!!
I drank a whole pot of coffee, but I finally made it out the door.
Christo made me lie on my back and push a heavy iron bar into the air
then he put weights on it! My legs were a little wobbly on the treadmill,
but I made the full mile. His rewarding smile made it all worthwhile. I
feel GREAT! It ' s a whole new life for me.
The only way I can brush my teeth is by laying the toothbrush on the
counter and moving my mouth back and forth over it. I believe I have a
hernia in both pectorals. Driving was OK as long as I didn't try to steer
or stop. I parked on top of a GEO in the club parking lot.

Christo was impatient with me, insisting that my screams bothered other
club members.. His voice is a little too perky for that early in the
morning and when he scolds, he gets this nasally whine that is VERY

My chest hurt when I got on the treadmill, so Christo put me on the stair
monster. Why would anyone invent a machine to simulate an activity
rendered obsolete by elevators? Christo told me it would help me get in
shape and enjoy life. He said some other crap too.
Butt hole was waiting for me with his vampire-like teeth exposed as his
thin, cruel lips were pulled back in a full snarl. I couldn't help being
a half an hour late-- it took me that long to tie my shoes.

He took me to work out with dumbbells. When he was not looking, I ran and
hid in the restroom. He sent some skinny witch to find me.
Then, as punishment, he put me on the rowing machine-- which I sank.
I hate that jackass Christo more than any human being has ever hated any
other human being in the history of the world. Stupid, skinny, anemic,
anorexic, little aerobic instructor. If there was a part of my body I
could move without unbearable pain, I would beat him with it.

Christo wanted me to work on my triceps. I don' t have any triceps! And
if you don't want dents in the floor, don't hand me the darn barbells or
anything that weighs more than a sandwich.

The treadmill flung me off and I landed on a health and nutrition
teacher. Why couldn't it have been someone softer, like the drama coach
or the choir director?
Satan left a message on my answering machine in his grating, shrilly
voice wondering why I did not show up today. Just hearing his voice made
me want to smash the machine with my planner; however, I lacked the
strength to even use the TV remote and ended up catching eleven straight
hours of the Weather Channel..
I'm having the Church van pick me up for services today so I can go and
thank GOD that this week is over. I will also pray that next year my
husband will choose a gift for me that is fun-- like a root canal or a
hysterectomy. I still say if God had wanted me to bend over, he would
have sprinkled the floor with diamonds!!!

Should you pay to pray..

Let me start off by saying I'm a Strong Believer in God and the Bible!
And I do attend (Not as often as I should) and donate regularly to a small church that my Mother was a member and I grew up attending.

One of my sisters and I have had a long dispute about this question "Should you pay to pray" She attends a big church and donates a portion of her earnings to the church and she also pays for her son and daughter to attend Private school there as well.

 She was telling me about one of her Preachers receiving from the Church a brand new Cadillac Escalade with ALL the extras, when I say all I mean GPS system built in, Leather interior, Rear TV's etc..... I'm talking easily a 75 thousand plus plus vehicle. He was very Impressed and thankful for the gift. (Really wouldn't we all be?) Now I'm sure he will have to figure out what to do with the 3 yr old Cadillac he was driving.

Now I'm thinking (cause I DO that sometimes) that the money could have really helped out A LOT of people during these hard times.  Even  a few that attend her Church that have lost their jobs over the past year.  And I also wonder how much of a say so"members" had in picking out this gift from their Church for him.

My Sister a 25 year member was totally surprised and happy for him when the gift was driven into the church and presented to her Favorite Preacher.
