I'm sorry to say there will not be a Gathering at our place in 2017 I had to have major surgery and am still recovering. I found out last week that when I get "close to 100%" they will be cutting on me again. Sorry again but I don't really have a choice trust me after over 30 days in the hospital the last time I'm not looking forward to going back for more.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery on both counts!  I just spent 3 days in the hospital for pneumonia and it was not fun, plus all the hospital stays for strokes.  I know what it's like and I don't envy you at all, hope you get better real soon!
