The News

OK OK folks, I'm sorry. I know I left you hanging with the good news. Leila and I are in good ol' Michigan, again. This time to meet my new niece or nephew and her cousin hopefully real soon, in fact were getting ready to go for a walk to expedite the process.

Now on with the show:

I got a call from the doc the other day. My ticker is responding to the medication! I'm not yet where I was before but super close. We now know that the medication is working and there's a good chance I'll be around for a long while. Thank God and thank you all for your prayers. It's truly a miracle to recover from this twice and I pray it never comes back. Will I be on the medications for life? Yup, most likely. They make you feel horribly tired but I'll take it.

Right after hearing the news, Tariq and I had a date night better than any other. We went out to eat at a great restaurant and then to Phantom of the Opera.

Good food, good company and a good heart.

Oh what a night.


  1. Hooray, hooray!!!! Sorry you'll be tired from the medicine, but SO glad it's going to keep ticking on for you for a long time!!!


  2. YEAH!!! I am so happy for you! What a relief! How fun to go to go on a fun date after the wonderful news!!

  3. What a great God we have! I am so happy for you and your family. Life is precious and I know I sometimes take my health for granted. Kiss those babies for me!

  4. Aww Kelli, I'm so happy about the good news! I've had some debilitating health issues lately and I understand about the meds! I'll send an email or call as soon as I can. For now, I just wanted you to know that I am thrilled about the news!!!! :-)
