Great Reason to Beat Sclero

Recommended Posts

My son, who is in Afghanistan, was home on leave in August. Apparently he and his wife were on a mission and mission was accomplished.........................I am going to be a Grandma for the first time. Yesterday was Grandparent's day too!!!

He is supposed to be home for good in December and I sure hope they don't hold him longer so he can be around to enjoy the pregnancy.

 

What a reason to beat this disease. I have to be honest that a part of me worries how much of this little one's life I will be around to see but hopefully a long time. I have an appointment with the oncologist coming up and it's such a worry. I also have been so sick lately that it's always a worry on how healthy I will be. I plan to enjpy every minute.

 

I know that this isn't really sclero medical related but I thought good news is nice for a change.

 

Just had to share. Thanks for listening.

 

Warm hugs,

 

Peggy

Congratulations Peggy!!!! and congratulations to your son and daughter-in-law!

 

Darlin' - I think we'll all be around a lot longer than we think. It's the good things in life like babies and grand babies (and lots of other things) that keep us hanging in there.

Peggy,

It's great to hear of your wonderful news! Being a Grandma is the best thing in the world for me. I have just one and she was just 6 months old when I became ill, but when I see her smiling face, nothing else matters.

 

I look on the bright side... I did have to sell my business that I loved since I couldn't work any longer, but now I have so much more free time to play with her that I wouldn't have had.

 

Congratulations!!

Peggy, I'm so happy for you. I don't know what it's like (and don't want to know anytime soon ;) ), but my mom can eat my teen sons up so it must be a great pleasure. Is the mom to be near you? That would be awesome!


I may have Scleroderma, but Scleroderma doesn't have me!

Oh Peggy...That is awesome news!

 

Grandmahood really rocks...I'm sure the other grandmas "out there" will agree with me, too :D

 

Just one more wonderful reason for us to keep on keepin' on, Peggy :rolleyes:

Congrats! to you. Also your family and son's wife need congratulations. You will be one happy lady when your son is finally home for good. It is always wonderful to hear good news. I hope you had some fun times when he was home for his two week leave. Cherish your memories.
