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 :)
