Austin just got home from school and is full of energy as usual. He had a good day and that is what counts. Today has been a pretty good day for me, lots of news to tell. First, the newspaper article for the interview that I had a couple of weeks ago was in the paper today. Natasha, the journalist did an awesome job! Then I got a call from Joy Robertson at KOLR 10. She is going to do a live report with Allen and me on Monday afternoon. She did somewhat of an interview on the phone, but wants to bring the cameras out. So, I have got to get the place spiffed up the next couple of days. Allen is not too thrilled about it all.................he HATES being on camera. I don't really want that either, but that is the purpose of all of this. I just thank God that he supports me through this. The bad news is, his Dad's bioposy came back today and he has cancer. I haven't got the full story yet, but they are going to start chemotherapy on him in about a month. I hate to say this, but I am not bothered by that at all. He has been so mean to me the last 5 years or so, I feel no compassion for him. I am here for Allen and his Mom, but that is all I feel. I hope that doesn't make me a bad person. Donna my sister-in-law called and checked on me earlier today and she is going to be staying another 2 weeks. That kind of messed up the purpose of Allen taking vacation time off to help with his Dad. But, it is too late to change it now. So, he may just go ahead and take the pay and work it anyway and make alittle extra money. He has so much on his plate right now...........me, his Mom and now his Dad. He needs all of the alone time that he can get, which lately isn't much. I am still working on my new message board, Dementia Rescue: www.groups.yahoo.com/group/dementiarescue. I have 15 members and am working really hard to build it up. I think that it really has alot to offer, just as DASNI does. Well, I need to go and feed my kid.
Take care and God Bless!

Love Always, Tracy
