It has been a while

Hello again, everyone. It has been a while since I have been here. A lot has happened in the two years I have been gone. 
Last year I finally had a gastric by-pass surgery to help with my diabetes. I am happy to say "Praise the Lord!!" The surgery healed my diabetes! I stopped taking insulin days after the surgery and now a year past the surgery I have lost a total of 85 pounds. I usually fluctuate between 80-90 pounds lost. All of my labs are now normal and I have been taken off all my medications I was on before the surgery. I only take a stomach medicine. I also take a whole lot of vitamins now but no more medications!! I am blogging about that on a word press it is if any one wants to check that out.
In January I graduated with my Master's program in nursing!!! This was a chore but I completed it with a lot of prayer and tears. I am now working at a School of Nursing which has been a dream of mine for a long time. This was a major answer to prayer!!!
My wonderful husband has retired from the steel mill after 20 years of service. In October of last year he retired; at the moment he is my house husband! I love it!! I found out we have a laundry day!!Married over 30 years and I did not know we had a laundry day!! LOL!! I just did laundry as we needed to do it!  Now I have a laundry day!!! He is talking about getting a part time job but I have to say I will miss my house husband!
We have 5 grand children now and one on the way 4 boys, one girl and one boy on the way. We are very excited about that!

I am hoping to keep up a little better here now that I remember how to get back in.
I am off to spend some time with my family now! I will write about it soon!!
I also have to update these pictures!!
