|Amy and one of their ward missionaries played music for me...made me cry, but Chad "would not cry". It was special, spiritual music.|
|Lonnie and Chad on Swing, making Lonnie's homemade ice cream.|
|Chandler and I played Ladder ball|
|Colton, Chandler and I played Sequence, a board game. We all love playing games- a legacy from Gogram and Grandpa Bailey.|
|Caleb, It is amazing how all the kids know their way around electronics.|
|Amy and Annalea. I spilled a 2 quart picture of koolaid, I made another one and Chandler then spilled that all over his mom. Amy is wearing Annalea's clothes. Nice when you can wear your daughter's clothes.|
|President Tew is busy interviewing all the missionaries to get to know them better. He even knows where they are from--impressive! These 3 elders are waiting for their interview.|

|We took a short drive down to Long Beach (along the coast). This is Amy with the Queen Mary out her window.|
|We walked on the beach to find seashells at sunset with Amy and Dave.|
|Elder McOmber brushing his cat, he gave Amy the Starfish he found. We will continue to look for another one.|
|We found this "sea urchin" that we couldn't figure out what it was. |
Duh, it is a play ball that has gone flat.

My family has been awesome and good at helping me accept. Sara and Amy have made all kinds of pink bracelets, the pink awareness signs, we wear pink on Tuesdays. Liz was thinking about coming, we are glad she decided to come! Talking with Sara on the phone and having Amy and Liz come has helped me accept and work through some of my feelings. Sometimes you just need a good girlfriend to talk to and all my daughters are my girlfriends! (Sara is helping keep up our home in ID-we are thankful we don't need to worry about that. She would be here in a heartbeat if we said to come!) Jami is busy with her work and family; we miss her and her family also!
I pray that I can keep doing my missionary service. Elder McOmber will stay busy helping even while I am recuperating.
I am scheduled for surgery on July 23rd. Will talk to a Dr on Monday to see which surgery he will do. I still know that the Lord is in charge and helping.
We have had awesome medical care at the VA. Everyone that we have interacted with, has been a patient advocate. Very impressive.
I appreciate Yvette Boyce taking care of my granddaughter at Volleyball Camp at UVU. Miranda was touched by the compassion Yvette showed her. I have talked and received messages from some of my friends at EIRMC, I appreciate the support! We are all important to each other!!!!
Thank you to all my friends and relatives. I love you!
