Ryan's last day with braces, more house and an update on Shirley

Here's the very last photo of Ryan with braces. I'll have to get a photo today of the after. I thought I got one yesterday, but I didn't see a shot on my camera card.

This photo of the house is kinda grainy because it was really dark when I got to the property. As you can kinda see, the exterior walls of the house are up. Eric said that next week, the roofers will come. I hope the weather holds out by then. Please say a little prayer for weather favors.

On a sad note, my mother-in-law has to start Chemotherapy on Monday. It appears that some breast cancer cells are floating around and have attached themselves to her abdominal wall, wreaking (sp?) havoc on her. The fluid that was drained from her abdomen is the bodies' defense mechanism at work. Please say a prayer for her as she faces this difficult time. The doctor said that if she didn't take chemo, she'd have a year to live. We want her around as long as divinely possible so that Connor and Desi, her two youngest grandkids, can remember her.

I stopped in today to see if there was a pic of Ryan with his new choppers (teeth) LOL.
