Looking forward to 2012

Wednesday, December 28, 2011

Oh what a strange year 2011 was.

Mike and I became the proud grandparents of our first grandchild, Rosalie Cecelia Fronckowiak, born on April 26, 2011 in Seoul, Korea. Our son is a Sergeant in the US Army and is stationed at Camp Casey. We haven't seen him in almost 2 years and have not gotten to hold our precious little one yet, but we do skype a lot! They will be returning stateside in March and we are counting down the days.

I lost my job in April and as of today have not been able to find another position. While resulting in a little bit of a financial strain, not working did wonders for my golf game!

We experienced some sad events - Mike's mother passed away on Memorial Day and my sister was diagnosed with terminal inflammatory breast cancer in July.

I don't know what 2012 will have in store for us. Hopefully, only happy events, but no matter what it throws at us I know we will have the strength and determination to see it through.

Wishing all of you a Happy and Healthy New Year!

    Hello, I saw your words "terminal IBC" and had to respond
    IBC does not have to be terminal. Only doctors that don't understand there are treatments and specific IBC clinics around the US would say that.

    Maybe we can help. Go to our site and see all the doctors who specialize in IBC around the country. look under "About Us"
