What birthday gift do you give a good friend who is the self-proclaimed King of Carbohydrates? A crown (presented on a velvet pillow) of course.
Jeff’s birthday was last week. It started out with the birthday tradition in our household (one started by Jeff) – pie of your choice for breakfast. Jeff’s choice this year was apple.
The day ended with our care group enjoying chocolate brownies in the shape of one of Jeff’s robots. They were delicious and Jeff reports that it was a very good day, indeed.
It seems that the busiest birthday season of the year has just passed… did you know there was such a thing?

Happy Birthday to the patient, supportive and incredibly loving guy who has completely driven the ship (and done everything to keep it going) while I’ve been locked in my office for the past 6 weeks…. well, make that the past two years. I’m so looking forward to having a “normal” life with you again, soon.

There is a hearty group of Jeff’s family members here on Vancouver Island who are always up for a party… or an excuse to have a party. Between major holidays and family birthdays, we usually find ourselves enjoying each other’s great company (and filling our faces) every month or so. We have so much fun and it’s so good to have each other.

My last post, written on June 30, was written in celebration. It’s amazing how quickly life can take us from celebration to its exact opposite.
The next step will be triple bypass surgery (if the surgeons find what they think they will find) on Wednesday, July 6. I am flying to Saskatoon on Monday to be my parents for the next few weeks. If you could hold my immediate family- my Dad and Mom, Lyndon and Jennifer, and Jeff and I- very tight in your thoughts and prayers, we would appreciate it very much. I will return here to post updates as they are available.
