Happy (Belated) Halloween!

I've been meaning to post for a few days now... BUT it's been a bit hectic. My step dad, Jorge, has been in the hospital all week. Thankfully, he was just sent home and he's staying with my aunt for a few days. His white blood cells were critically low and, initially, he was running a fever of 105 so he ended up in the ER. His oncologist believes these have been side effects of the chemo treatments, and he has just one more to go! Also, they had surgically inserted a port into his chest so that he could receive the chemo through there, but it got clogged and he was scheduled to get it taken out. It turns out that it may have become infected, but yet they couldn't cut him and take it out due to his very low blood cell count. This turned into a waiting game until it finally was removed late Thursday. I'm so glad he's better now... He's resting and taking some time off from work. We just want him healthy and strong! I love him very much and I'm praying for a speedy recovery.

This week, my mother-in-law is going in for a medical procedure that will determine if she'll need surgery on her heart. And my grandma-in-law will be getting open-heart surgery on Tuesday! She's strong, but she's 82 so we are praying that she gets through this quickly and with no complications. She's an angel and I really believe that she'll be just fine... Please keep our loved ones in your thoughts and prayers.

Now on to a much lighter subject...

I hope you all had a HAPPY HALLOWEEN! How was it? What did you do? Richard and I went to Ady and Jorge's house for a party and we had lots of fun with the kids. Did I mention that my hubby is "one of the kids?" LOL!

I dressed up as... a butterfly!

And Richard was... the Grim Reaper!

D'Angelo and Elijah as the Men in Black

Damaris, Me and Ady - notice how my friends' sexy boobies make me look like I have a hot bod! I look like a Coca-Cola bottle! LOL! We got a good laugh out of that!

We went Trick or Treating and Richard scared some of the kids, especially Lil Miss Butterfly here...

I had no antennas for my costume and what's a butterfly to do with no antennas? My honey came to the rescue! He made me these awesome antennas and attached them to a headband and voila! I just love him!

And yes, he also put those black dots on my face because, after all, I was an insect! Though I don't think people got it! LOL!

Ady's beautifully decorated dining room table...

Good friends, good laughs, good food, good times! Hope you all had a great night, too.

I'm off to exercise and visit family...
