I've been a pretty sporadic Sparker lately, due to a lot of different things. My mom was diagnosed with stage 4 Lung Cancer this summer- that was a shock. She doesn't smoke, but my dad does, so he feels responsible, and has health issues of his own. She is still upbeat, even though she is presently in a rehabilitation center because she has a broken leg, and a broken hip on the other side. Her bones are weak because she has lesions from the metastasized cancer.
On a happy note, we just got back from an amazing vacation to Banff, Alberta. There we saw the most amazing scenery I have ever experienced. We also went whitewater rafting, cliff jumping, canoeing, and hiking.
Yikes! the cliff jumping was more scary than fun!
