Update on life, love Fiona :-)

Dearest sweet blog readers and family and friends,

First of all, I apologize for not updating this blog sooner. Secondly, please know that thanks to God, I am doing well. I still have brain MRIs every 3 months and visit my new neurooncologist at UCLA every 3 months. So far, the brain tumor is stable, meaning that it hasn't grown. It hasn't gotten smaller, which of course is our constant prayer. Zev and I are very grateful that it hasn't grown and give thanks to the Lord for his blessings and for keeping me alive longer! We believe that I will be around as long as God wills it; prayerfully for several years :-)


So much to catch up on! The reason why I haven't updated the blog is because in all honesty, the blog represented a sad and yet beautiful time in my life. I guess I didn't want to "touch" that reality, but I've received several comments from people who are worried about me, and so in all fairness and love for the sweet friends who want to know how I'm doing, I've decided to update you! And perhaps now I'll be more of a regular blog contributor for those of you that don't have Facebook 😉

Zev's job moved us to the desert! He loves his job, but it took Zachary and I a few months to truly get used to life here. We were sad to leave our wonderful friends and great church home in Virginia, but are grateful for our new friends here and our new church home. Zachary had gotten adjusted to his new preschool and I have made several new friends and am glad to be involved in a new women's Bible study! So life is going well. We also traded in our ATV for a new UTV (think ATV with a roof!) and have been exploring lots of different areas here in the desert. That's been fun! So life is going well. I even "forget" a lot of days that I still have a brain tumor and I believe that the Lord will allow me to live many years on his earth. I pray for His will to be done though, which although I honestly found that hard to pray (because I want to be around for Zachary and Zev and my entire family and friends), I trust that God has a plan for my life and future. 

Zev and I wish all of you a very merry Christmas. We can hardly believe that Christmas is just around the corner! Thank you for caring about me and for praying. Prayers are always needed and appreciated. Please pray that my brain tumor not grow and that I won't have to undergo a 4th brain surgery. Thanks in advance. I love you and thank God for you! 

Blessings,

Fiona ❤️

Thanks for your update. I too found you quite some time ago thru Kelly's Korner and have kept you in my prayers and have been concerned for you since it has been so long since you updated.

I also live in California and am the wife of a retired military officer so I understand what it is to move around after you've been settled, made friends and your kids have made friends.

I'd love to follow you on face book so I can keep up with how you are doing but didn't know your last name. Could you send me a friend request so I can follow you. My name is "Susan Kalb" .

Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas and the best of everything in the New Year!!!

I am Alecia,from what I can read. It has been sad news and scam to everyone about Voodoo casters or so. But to me they are so real cause one worked for me not quite long ago.i met this man on a blog his name is Dr Abalaka is a very powerful man.I traveled down to where his shrine his and we both did the ritual and sacrifice.he had no website yet but he promised to create one as costumers are requesting for it, and now i'm free from the powders of sickness.I don't know about you but Voodoo is real;love marriage,finance, job promotion ,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,diabetic voodoo,hypertensive voodoo,high cholesterol voodoo,Trouble in marriage,Barrenness(need a child),Luck, Money Spells,he also cure any cancer and HIV,it's all he does. I used my money to purchase everything he used he never collected a dime from. He told me I can repay him anytime with anything from my heart. Now I don't know how to do that. If you can help or you need his help write him on (dr.abalaka@outlook.com) and also his cell number: 760-935-3804 you can text him because he use to be very busy some times,i believe that your story will change for better,or if you have any question you can contact me here as 1001madonado@gmail.com best of luck.
