wed the 9th.

Today was a good day. I doubled up on the morphine and got to go golfing with my brother, mother, James, Zeb, Jeff, and Aaron. I had a great time. I also got to get the fluid drained from around my lungs today and my breathing is great so thats good. They took 2 liters out. On the bad side of that it looked like it was cancer in the lung lining, its not for sure yet we'll know next mon or tues. At this point its not a big set back since I'm already set back quite a bit. We have a benefit concert and silent auction in Napa arranged on Sunday, July 27. Brett at Billco's generously agreed to host the evening from 3-midnight, located at 1234 3rd st. If you would like to get involved or donate to the auction please contact Jason Smith at 707-812-4954 or Lisa Blackman at 707-815-3689. More details will be posted shortly. I personally, from the bottom of my heart, feel so blessed to have friends and family like I do. I love each and everyone of you. You have made this whole process so much easier on me. I am as strong as I can possibly be right now, and a lot of that I owe to you. Thanks. Talk to you tomorrow.

I am so glad you had a good morning, too bad Dan couldn't go golf with you. Even if there is cancer in your lung lining, I don't think it will make much difference with what will have to happen treatment wise. We are with you in this all the way, love you!

Hey guys... I put the info from the Sky Jackson Medical Fund into a facebook.com cause.
Search for Cole Armstrong and add the cause on my page. Message me there if you have any problems. That facebook cause thing moves fast! We should be able to reach a large amount of people in a short time!

Wow! What a great day you had. That's so good to hear. Hang on to that memory because when it gets tough again, bring it back and look forward to another one. As always, you're in my daily prayers.

Sky..
Yay for a good day! I think it's great that you are blogging on your daily happenings. As much as it may be helping you, vent or reach out.. it helps and comforts us who can't be there in Long Beach physically with you. The fundraiser at Billco's should be a hit with everyone reaching out and spreading the word.. I know I, as well as everyone else will do all we can to get friends of friends of friends (lol) there to help support and get this money raised for a second opinion. Prayers and Blessings.. ~crazyislandgirl~

Hey Sky,

I echo the comments already posted....I'm grateful that you take the time to keep everyone updated on everything and it's great to hear your spirits are so good. I'm getting ready to send out the 411 regarding the benefit to all the people on my email list...lots of them are business owners, so hopefully they will kick down. The prayer circles continue to grow...I can tell you feel the love.

Keep smilin',
