I just wanted to give a quick hello to let everyone know Joseph is home. It has been so wonderful to have him here, all of us are on cloud nine and thoroughly enjoying getting loved on by Dada. Its a very short stay though, he leaves this coming Saturday to head back up to the base for his C school and will be there for 14 weeks. The boys and I are planning on following after him sometime around the 15th of January.

Please continue to keep my family in prayer. I know I have not been keeping everyone updated, but I know that most of the people that read this blog are living and breathing everything that is going on with my Aunt Christi and it has just been to hard to write about. After no change since the day of the seizure ( a heart attack was ruled out) and proof that she no longer has any brain activity going on, the incredibly hard decision to take her off of life support was made yesterday. The reality is that she left us two weeks ago when she slipped into a coma, but its still hard to reconcile the fact that she is gone. I do need to clarify that at this point we are just waiting for her body to pass away, but my Christi is gone. It is a very strange feeling to mourn someone when you know their body is still laying in a hospital bed breathing and doing all its basic functions, but needing to remember that the body is no longer the woman I loved. Please pray for me and my family as we say goodbye to someone we love. Pray for my grandparents who are having to watch their oldest child die, my mother and her sisters, Kim, Jaime and Kelly (my mom) and for Christi's husband Frank and her son Justin, along with everyone else I love and call family.

Ok, the tears are starting to threaten so I am out for tonight.
