A Bit About Now


Lowell and Laura Lane

I thought you might like to know a bit about my life right now. 

My 16 yo daughter who keeps me running since she hasn't got a license yet, is in Nashville recording her first single. It's going to be available on iTunes. I'll send an announcement out when it's ready. 

I didn't have to run anywhere today! Yay! I got some extra knitting in. I'm going to have to start taking photos and sharing my knitting on the blog. A couple of my chemo nurses invited me to a knitting group. I finally went in January. I've make new friends and learned new things. I've made lots of hats to donate to the chemo center this fall. When I get my size 4 Chiao Goo circular knitting needles in the mail, I'm going to begin knitting the Reyna Shawl. It's a free pattern on Ravelry. If you want to be friends, my name is HarvestLaneLaura

My 20 yo daughter is living at home after staying with a friend part-time last fall. She's taking classes at the community college, and she's teaching private voice, piano, and guitar lessons at the local music company.

My 18 yo son moved out just a few weeks before the semester ended. He will be taking classes at the community college next fall. He works part-time in the field that he hopes to make a career in someday.

My oldest son is 27 and started a new job today.  He's been working outside for years. This position is indoors. I'm sure he will feel much better working in air conditioning.

My husband has been getting a new business off the ground as general manager in addition to his business consulting work.  It all keeps him very busy. 

Lots of changes.

I'm doing alright. Tired a lot from the treatments, but I'm not sick. Just two more. I'll be done July 18. Then it's just blood tests every six weeks and doctor appts every 3 months plus whatever else the doctor thinks I need. I'll have surgery again this fall. It's been a long haul, but God's taken good care of me.

You've all been wonderful to pray for me! I'm not done yet, but I can just see land far on the horizon!

God bless!

  3. I am SO sorry to hear that you have to have another surgery in the fall! Bless your dear heart. I pray for you faithfully and trust God to see you through.

  6. Such a joy to read this post. You have a very full life Laura !!:) I'm glad to read that you have just two more treatments to go ~ what a brave soul you are. I'll continue with prayers. Blessings to you ~ I look forward to listening to your daughters song on itunes :)

  7. Praying for you -so sorry you have to endure another surgery. Your family Laura sounds like they are all doing very well. They have done very well!

  8. Hi Laura, I've been MIA because I just got back from Nashville. I wasn't singing though, I was visiting my daughter. I can't wait to hear your daughter's first recording. Your children are all doing well, it seems, and you must be very proud of them. You are almost there with your treatments!!!! Hopefully you will feel stronger and stronger soon. I hope your friend is doing better each day.

  9. Thank you for the update. Wishing you and your family all the best in their lives. And thank God for listening to all of our prayers for your health issues with cancer.


  10. Hallelujah for you and yours! Sounds like everything is getting back on track. So happy for you. Thanks so much for including me and Wild Bill in your prayers.

  11. No way, you don't look old enough to have a child of 27!

    You must be so proud of all your children's achievements, they all sound like they have done really well for themselves. What great parents you both are :)

    I pray that your health keeps on improving Laura, Deb's also.

    Thank you for such a newsy update, I look forward to hearing more about your daughters first single release :)



  12. I am glad you aren't sick but have an sure it could get weary. Sounds like a new season of life with your kiddos and for you all.

  13. This was a fun update about your children. I often think that since we are empty nesters and our children live in other places that we appear childless and it is easy to think that of others whose children have flown the nest. I too am sorry you have to go through another surgery. You are so brave and I know you can do it with grace.

  14. Your kids sound like they are doing well. I'm so glad you aren't sick. Saying a prayer for you.

  15. Oh Laura!! I'm so thankful to hear the update and that you are doing good through it all! So exciting for your daughter to have this recording opportunity! And wonderful for each of your children to be pursuing their dreams, along with your husband's new business too! Very exciting to hear that your cancer treatments are drawing to a close, light at the end of the tunnel! Continuing to keep you in my prayers sweet friend!!

  16. Your family is sure busy with all their endeavours! You continue to be in my prayers.

  17. How exciting that your daughter is recording her first single!
    Sending prayers your way as you finish up your last few treatments.

  18. How in the world do kids grow up so fast! I am thankful you are feeling better and I thank you for letting me be with you on this journey. I know it was a hard one but you have done amazing! God is so good!
