We are happy to hear your good news, although you probably think it would have been better news if they would have decided this before hooking you up. Being able to read the highly amusing account of your ordeal on the blog is an additional bonus. Don't wait for another near-death experience to write!

pain, suffering, death, etc.

yo whats up fam. hopefully you have already realized that this is not nancy. thats right, its yours truly, stevie. I am sure that you are all very eager to hear the latest news on my recent grapples with mortality so here goes.
after the lovely thanksgiving day festivities, which were so graciously hosted by matt and janelle, i returned home to check my email and watch conan. since I would not be allowed to eat or drink anything in the morning before my ct-guided needle biopsy, I ended up staying awake until 3:00 a.m. I ate every morsel of food that I could find and accidentally consumed a half pint of sterno(jp). my mother, nancy, awoke me from my rejuvenating slumber at approximately 9:07 a.m.

ok I am getting really tired of telling this story so thoroughly so basically I went to the doctor and they took some of my blood out and stuff and I had an iv in my arm. I even had to change into a gown and everything. then they were giving me a cat-scan and it was kind of weird because they had a sticker on my neck, some dewhickey clamped to my finger, an iv in my right arm and a blood pressure thingy on my left arm. I was in the cat-scan-o-matic for like 15-20 minutes and then they said, "we are really dumb so we arent going to give you the biopsy because your tumor got smaller and so we think that it would be best to wait and see what happens." then I had to get the iv out and all that jazz. the lady left me in a room by myself to change and so I stole some medical equipment. anybody need a flu-shot? so thats what happened today. I dont really know anything more about my tumor than I did before. peace.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Giving Thanks!

We had a wonderful time at Matt and Janelle's! Everything was terrific, and it was a fine time to celebrate all that we have to be thankful for! Thank you, M&J!!

The excellent turkey looked much like this one, but BIGGER and even better!:

Happy Birthday Joel

Happy Birthday, Joel - 7 x 7 candles for you!
Livvi's card is quite funny, but I happen to be one who thinks you are very young indeed! I hope you had a great day!
It's great to hear from you, Ingrid. Happy Thanksgiving to one and all. I'll be in St. Paul on the big day. Nancy
Happy Birthday Daddy!
I made my dad a card that had this pic on the front:

With the words: "Some things never get old..."
inside it said "You're not one of them. Happy birthday!"
I found it quite funny...
