"I'll Be Better Doc, As Soon As I Am Able..."

 
I see Casey already posted today from her hospital bed!  After 6
rounds of Chemo and other therapy she had breast cancer surgery
today.  The Surgeon told me Casey did great and she felt it went
very well.  As Casey approaches 8 years of doing her blog everyday,
I know she considers you to all be her extended family and she
appreciates all your prayers and positive comments.  For those of
you who do not know, we have been married 43 years.  We have
one daughter, April, who we are proud of beyond words,  a great
son-in-law, Seth, a 4 year old grandson, Amare, who makes us
smile everyday and our wonder cat, Kota.  As followers of her blog,
you know Casey is creating something everyday but along with her
miniatures, beading, knitting, embroidery and gardening, she also
sews, paints, draws and even played guitar and sang in a bar while
in college. When I just got home from the hospital, Tessie and Kota
were patiently waiting on the bed for her to return.  I have to tell
them it will be tomorrow, but all went well!

I am Soooooo Glad to hear your news regarding Casey's surgery, Walter!
And may I say it is a pleasure to finally meet you "in person" having only heard about you "second-hand" until now! :D

Walter,
Thank you for giving us an update. I started following Casey a year ago after a 30-year absence from minis. Her adventures and positive attitude allowed me to joyfully return to the hobby I love. She is a very special person.
