This will be my last update on myself and what is going on. From there on I want only happy thoughts to take over.

We have been fighting the medical system for a year now and had they done their jobs I would not be where I am now. I went into the hospital in Grayling on Friday for a ultrasound that I demanded because the ass of a Dr. that I have lost all my paper work. They took me over to the emergency. The emergency Dr. said if I had any of the new symptoms in the list to go to Traverse City because Grayling wasn't equipped to handle my severity. That comment didn't make me feel good. I went to the hospital in Traverse City they did more tests on Monday. The results all came back Thursday. End stage pancreatic cancer. One to Two months to live. An in-operable mass that has spread throughout my stomach cavity, no recourse. End game. Wish it was April fools, but it isn't!

This has hit my family quite hard, so please be kind to them all. Since I have stated everything I know there is no reason to ask for updates. I am sure someone will post after I have left. If you are family Call my sister Jackie or Eric if needed, but please, they both are under enough strain. Other than that FB really isn't the place for such posts unless to in list prayers of hope. In this case there is none. If you post anything to my time line please - no "Jesus saves" or "god" shit, No bible verses as I am not in the mood for fiction - In other words respect my religious beliefs. I pray and prayers are always welcome, especially toward my family They are having a hard time of it. Don't feel sorry for me I have lived many lives in this lifetime and will die surrounded in love and light.

Enough said, Blessings to all. Love Stormy.

Stormy has been on my mind, so I went on her facebook page. This was the post left by her husband:

Stormy passed on in her sleep early this morning. She went peacefully and had just experienced the first full day of peace and rest in many weeks. She seemed comfortable and free of pain. The last sound I heard from her sounded like laughter. The many forms of anxiety that come with this process had been lain to rest and I believe she was finally able to let go because of it. Thanks to everyone. Services will be quaint and for close family only. She will rest in the area her parents are, having made the journey back to northern Michigan in time to pass on where she had many childhood memories.

Garden having a little trouble

The nights here have been so cold 36-39 all month until last week when it went up to a whopping 44 at night. all my plants are slow because of this. My problem is by early October it will be frosting at night. I saw a dig in green house that is about 4-5 foot down and then covered on an angle so you can stand in it. When we get our own property we will be trying this.

Has anyone else had a problem with bugs on your tomato plants? I think my garden is being targeted, first it was Aphids, then the horned tomato worm, now of all things Stinkbugs. The stinkbugs have almost completely destroyed my tomatoes.

I was wondering if anyone else was having a problem.

Was out working on my garden

Everything is coming along nicely. Cut back my Chocolate Mint and put it in the dehydrator to dry and maybe have some chocolate mint tea later tonight.

Besides the things I planted there are 7 raspberry or black berry bushes that are filled with unripe fruit.

Went looking for teaberrys but they seen to be not producing right now. While I was in my yard where the woods start I discovered there are many Saskatoon plants just starting their berries. Later they will look like this picture. For those who do not know they are very close to a blueberry

Silly Sweet Potato

Talk about Small Space Gardens, this sweet potato has been growing in my vegetable basket, about 4 months now. I guess it's high time I plant it.
