Great News

Steve and Debbie last Christmas

The best news we could have had and nothing to do with our horses. Today our Daughter In Law Debbie went in for her surgery for ovarian cancer and possible uterine cancer. They sent her off to surgery and we sat and sat and sat - about 4 hours I believe and the doctor came out and said NO CANCER anywhere. They sent tissue the lab and it was all clear. Thank you so much for all your prayers, thoughts and whatever you believe in because it worked. You could see the load lift off of Steve's shoulders when the doctor told us. I thought he was going to levitate to the moon. What a relief. She now has to recover from the surgery but the relief will help her through that.

Then, what a day, sitting at the hospital is exhausting. When we got home there were flowers waiting for us. A dear friend, Grandma Jean, sent them as a thank you to Bob for all he does for her. We did not expect it but it was wonderful to find on the porch. They look like spring.

More rain today. It was pouring when we left for the hospital but had slowed down by this evening. Our lake - Lake Dru - is full again. We changed the name to Lake Dru because last year Nikki and a friend came to visit and her little guy Dru had been told to stay out of the water, and you know what he did, went out and "fell" in. He expected great sympathy from his mother but didn't get it. Anita reminded me of it and we changed the name to Lake Dru.


PS - Kelly at Rose Hill Farm, why can't I send you a comment?


  1. The look on his face was priceless Grandma Lea, because Grandpa Bob didn't possibly me him!

  2. What a nice family. It would be wonderful to have the love and support of a family. Hug them tight. Have get togethers. And take pictures. Put the pictures up so everyone knows they are thought about and loved. And of your Mustangs too because they are a big part of your life. Many blessings and happiness are being sent your way.

  3. Praise His holy name! What a blessing this wonderful healing was for all of you. blessings, marlene

  4. What wonderful news about your daughter in law!! I'll bet your son does feel like the weight of the world has been lifted from his shoulders...what a blessing for all!! Hang in there with the rain, I'll try to send some dry weather your way. We've had 3 days in a row of sunshine!! Can you believe it?? Our "false spring" that is a common occurence in February...I'm thankful for it!! Thank you for the sweet comment on my blog. It means a lot to me. Sure wish you could be here to give me a boot in the butt that I need to get on Eagle. I know you're right. I just need to do it. When I get nervous, I helps. My hubby goes on lay-off starting next week. Scary times. But will keep praying and trying to stay positive. Thank you Lea!! Big hugs to you!!
