Cruise Cancelled

So, my cruise got cancelled. I am thankful though, cause a little boy who needed a liver got his new liver and is doing well. Little Riley is settling into hospital life and getting better daily. He had a little bit of trouble yesterday, but hopefully they have gotten things straigtend out today.
Instead of going on a cruise for 7 days, I will be going to Maryland for 4 days. My friend Erinn from back in my WOLBI days has greatfully opened her apartment to me for a few nights. Its not a 7 day vacation, but it gets me away and allows me to visit with someone I haven't seen for over 7 years now. Last time we saw each other was Erinn's wedding. It will be great to visit with her and meet her little boy Abraham for the first time. He just turned 2 and is the cutiest thing (other than my kids) I have ever seen. His smile is just so big.
Anyway, just wanted to update you all (if anyone even reads this) on what has changed. Our cruise may be rescheduled, but we just don't know yet. I will keep you posted.

Praises from Maine

I have been very busy lately trying to get ready for my "Trip of a life time". My mother-in-law has given me a cruise. Her and I are to set sail 2 weeks from today. We are suppose to go with 2 of our friends, but we are not sure who will be going at this point as one has just been given a wonderful gift. Our friend is a "Foster Mom" to a little boy named Riley. He has been sick since birth and was put on a transplant list for a liver (I believe). He was put on the list at the beginning of Febuary and got the call on Friday morning to get to Boston for the surgery. He went through beautifully and was awake Saturday morning, but it will be a long stay at the hospital for recovery. Pray for little Riley. His mom's parental rights are in the process of being terminated. Please pray for Riley that he will have the opertunity to stay in the home where he feels safe. He is a wonderful little boy who just wants to be loved.
Anyway, just wanted to give a quick little post to let you know I haven't fallen off the edge of the world.
