Happy Mother’s Day! Just a friendly reminder…We have 1 week until the Colon Cancer Walk and the Baty Bash picnic. Details for both of these events are at the top of this page-just roll your mouse over the titles.
I will be taking part in the walk this year along with a couple of others. We then will rendezvous with everyone who will be attending the picnic at Bush Lake Park in Bloomington, MN at noon. We have Picnic Shelter 1. If you are trying to locate the park, here is the address of the park/beach: 9140 East Bush Lake Road, Bloomington, MN. Our shelter does not have an address-we are on the opposite side of the lake as the beach. Again, everything will be provided-although you may want to bring a couple of extra lawn chairs. About 50-60 people will be attending. The food is served at noon, a couple words of “thanks” around 1 p.m. If you are looking for a hotel to stay at, call the Crowne Plaza in Bloomington at: 952-831-8000, ask for the Chris Baty Benefit rate($69-two double beds). I am not sure what type of availability they have.
Overall life is great. I literally thank God every day that I am not on chemo. I do blood work every week and finally last week the numbers for my liver functions all came back into the normal range. Since the radiation treatment they have been a little out of whack. The doc’s will be calling me soon to set up my next body scan to see/understand what has been going on with my Liver since the radiation treatment.
Karen and the guys are doing well. Karen has pretty much been gone every weekend shooting hockey tournaments. Jaxson continues to do Tae Kwon Do with Karen. Brenden’s soccer kicks(yeah pun intended just for you Mr. Bahr) off on May 17th. I will be coaching again this year, but in an Asst. capacity. I thought with health things always up in the air and a with a few church commitments, it would be more fun to be in that capacity.
Thank you for stopping by and checking out the blog. Your prayers and well wishes are always welcome. Any last minute additions for either event can still sign up, but please do earlier than later. I am sure Pat will want to have a head count to get the food and drinks in order. To sign up, check out the pages noted above.
thanks and be blessed,
