Life holds no promises, Live for today!
Yesterday is gone, and tomorrow isn't promised.
February 10th 2019, Update Sense my heart episode Thursday 2/8, and then my Doctor called back, he said no more singing for now. It is taking oxygen I need for my lungs, heart, and brain to function properly, and drawing it from my lower extremities to get enough oxygen needed for my lungs and heart and brain to work. They do not want me to overdo myself. it was very scary yesterday, and i really thought this is going to be it. It felt like someone was trying to pull my heart out of my chest. The Good thing is my nurse was here and on the phone with my hospice doctor. Indeed it was very scary. My family gathered to say there last good byes. All except my youngest son, but he was on the phone, as was my Mom. Until I stabilized, then I did after several hours try to sing a couple songs, but have to face the fact it just wasn't working. those days are now far and few between.
January 8th 2019, update I am truly amazed that I am still here. So many prayers coming from all over the world, I do believe your prayers are helping me go through this. I have reached a new stepping stone and a hard one to hurdle over. I will still be here as long as The Lord Jesus allows. Thank You again for all of your prayers.
December 16, 2018 update So far I have been able to continue hosting contests, and sing. I thank the Lord Jesus Christ everyday for waking up every day. The hospice people are very understanding caring people helping keep me comfortable. My angels and my anchor here in SingSnap who have been by my side through these last few months. You know who you are, Thank You for all you have done.
also, Thank You for the dance
November 13, 2018 update. I was rushed to the hospital Friday evening 11/9, and spent the weekend in the hospital fighting for my life. I was released home with hospice on board on Sunday. Medically they have done all they can for me. No more Doctor Appointments or hospital trips. How long do I have left you might ask ? I don't know. That is in God's hands. The goal through hospice is to keep me comfortable as long as I have left. I am doing the best I can and I so appreciate all the support and encouraging words here in SS. I have come to call many of you friends, Brothers and Sisters, and I do love you all. I will do as much as I possibly can to continue to host and be in SS as long as God allows.
October 1, 2018 update. I have retired from my business and turned it over to my grand kids, as I physically can no longer do it. I have also gotten over the initial shock of my health issues, and because of my love for music, singing, and hosting contests. I've come to realize that it gives me great satisfaction to continue to do so. With the Lord Jesus Christ on my side, I will continue to as long as I am able to. I always look forward to seeing all of you in contests.
August 7, 2018 update. I have started down a new path in my journey through life. Just being diagnosed with cancer in the last few weeks I will not be online here as often as I used to be and Contests I have so enjoyed hosting have been put on hold for now facing my personal battle of hope in the days to come.
March 3, 2018 update. John passed in December of 2017. He is now singing with the angels in the heavenly choir. He so loved to sing, and listen to everyone sing hosting contests. To him everyone was the best, and he would have a difficult time trying to narrow it down to top 3. Everyone had a winning recording because in his mind, they all did their best, and who can ask for more in the contests we hosted.
August 16, 2014. Here is just a little about us. John T and I, G_ma share this account. We own and operate our own karaoke business and we love it ! No better way to spend a venue than to meet new people and see regulars singing their hearts out. Same on here. We have met some great folks from all over the world in here, and heard many others sing. We come on here when we can, and have also enjoyed hosting contests from time to time.
