but it was taking shortly
after my diagnostic.
Jay. His "real" name is John. People get confused sometimes, because they see his name is John, but they hear me say "Jay". Maybe they think Jay is my boyfriend, since John is my husband. I guess that's why I never felt the need for a boyfriend? haha Jay and I met online. Our last intention was to "fall in love", as I was just looking for someone to help me learn English. But we did. We fell in mutual awe, respect, weirdness, and love. Isn't that beautiful. :) Jay is 58. He is a computer Engineer and works from home. That has been a huge blessing in our lives, especially when it came time to have surgery, and the weeks after that. He never had to take time off work, because he was able to work wherever I was. We know how blessed we have been. He is 19 years older than I am, but we never think about it. We don't see it either. Men are younger than their age anyway right? Shhhhh dont tell him i said that. He is a big clown, literally. He is very tall, 6'7". I am reminded of how tall he is when I am coming down the stairs and he waits for me at the bottom, and we hug when I am still 4-5 steps up. haha
He likes coffee, read all the news sites known to men, hamburgers, and a good College Sport game. He went to Catholic "St. Xavier" all boys Private High school and one of his favorite questions to ask anyone he meets is "Where did you go to high school?". You actually would be amazed of all the info he got from that, and finding out that someone is the nephew of a now doctor of a classmate he had in 10th grade. hahaha Jay and I both have a very sarcastic humor. Some people would consider it "sick" haha but we both totally understand each other and we have so much fun laughing together.

One of scouting's most challenging adventure.
Everyday, I look at my kids, and feel overwhelmed with love and pride. Despite the fact that each of them deal with something that is out of their control, they are such amazing human beings and do not let these obstacles define them. You would never know by just looking at them. Of course, once in a while, they drive me nuts, but over all, my heart swells with pride, and love, and rainbows and butterflies, you know!
