It has been a hectic few days since we arrived at home.

It took a few days just to work through the stacks sitting on my desk, but I think things are settling down - and I'm settling in.

Channel 11 news did a short story on the burglary on our home and the fact that Tanner's insurance has denied coverage for his chemotherapy.

The last few days, we have been interviewing with the Fort Worth Star Telegram and this morning we met with a photographer out at the house to be used with the article.

The reporter told me today that the story is due to be turned in tomorrow morning and should run in the paper around Christmas. He said either Christmas day or the weekend after Christmas and that I should just be watching the paper (thankfully I have a weekend subscription).

My sister-in-law, Cathy, works for the Star Telegram, so I'm hoping she can give us a head's up on the actual date.

Tanner has settled down since the burglary and has been able to spend some time with his friend, Gus, since we've gotten home.

Tonight we are going for Christmas at our cousin Jesse's house, tomorrow we will go for Christmas at Granny Jane and Pop Jerry's house, Christmas day we will go out to our cousin Kathy's house, and then Tanner's dad and step-mom will pick him up sometime in the afternoon Christmas Day and he will go and spend some time with them. Whew!

Christmas for days!!

Granny Jane met us and took Tanner to the doctor for me so that I wouldn't have to miss any additional time at work today.

All in all, things seem to be going well. It's hard for me to update on a regular basis since I don't have a computer at home but I will try to post at least every two to three days.

Shirley, if you are reading this, I hope you met your numbers and that you and Tom are at home for the holidays! Tanner and I miss you both!!

We wish you all a Merry Christmas!!

  1. So glad the media is picking up on Tanner's blight with the insurance company. I am so tired of someone other than his doctor deciding what treatment he should or should not have. Wonder where they get their medical training??
    Very happy you all are back home and getting back into the swing of "normal" livingl. Tanner, have some teenager fun (low key), you deserve it.
    We love you, Granny and Pop
