Welcome To Pilgrims and Pioneers!

After many years of researching my family geneaology I have been lucky enough to discover actual information about my relatives that lived in the Pilgrim Era and the Pioneer Era- while many people also have realtives from those eras- many do not know their names or where they lived- actually seeing the proof in print makes you much more aware of who they really were.
After discovering these relatives it of course made me curious to learn more about the eras that they lived in and what their lives were like as, the history I learned in grade school had long since been forgotten.
I decided to start this blog for others who are also interested in these eras.
Some of the information here will be actual facts about my realtives and some will be information about the eras in general that I have found on the web.
I hope you will enjoy traveling back in time with me!

Surgery for Son, Surgery for Husband, But doing the Happy Dance

Let me explain this a bit! I am doing the happy dance because these problems are going to be fixed!
My husband needs his gall bladder removed- has to see his cardiologist & a lung specialist first to make sure he can tolerate the anesthesia- if they give their okay he will be minus a gall bladder full of stones! And that will be a good thing!
My son discovered he has several blocked arteries- abdomen, kidney artery, and iliac artery that supplies blood to his left leg.
The surgeon he saw here found out he did not have medical insurance and said come back & see me when you have at least 20,000 dollars.
Not having this done would have led to a leg amputation or worse for my son- he is only in his thirties.
I contacted a hospital in a big city 80 miles away from us. He saw one of their vascular surgeoans today- he is going to have his heart arteries checked, and the carotid arteries in his neck and fix everything that needs to be fixed at one time if possible- also they are going to try to find out why this is happening at such a young age
They are truly angels there! So there fore I am doing the happy dance since both of my loved ones will hopefully soon be well.
