A Good Post

One of my wonderful blogger friends (they're all wonderful), Angry Parsnip,  sent me a gift-----I'm thrilled.  She knows I love Godzilla so she sent me a Zilla, a tea towel with  iWinston style dogs,  a wooden mitten clip, and Blue Corn Pancake Mix and Prickly Pear Syrup.  How thoughtful and wonderful is that.
Did a lot yesterday.  Did the laundry, helped Mac make lunch, updated my calendar, wrote 2 letters and read.  Today I'm blogging, went for a walk in the garden and I'm going to make pillows.
Getting better all the time

Well It's About Time

I've just been lazy.  All is well here, meeting with my Oncologist went well, don't have to go back for 2  weeks.  Some problems with constipation, not something I want to talk much about.  But getting better.
Rain, rain, rain, nearly every day and more forecast, a bit tired of that but the garden is loving it.  Some pictures Mac took for me.


Hydrangeas

Lilies

Gladiolas

Our Mimosa Tree, a new one has seeded itself down in the garden.

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all the women in my life whether they have children or not, they're important to me.  My wonderful daughter April who brings me so much joy.  My Sister-in-law Laura who has been so supportive of me in this difficult time.  My husband's cousin Isabel who reminds me that there are people who are just good.  I always have my Mother and my Mother-in-law in my thoughts, I was so lucky to have them.
My meeting with my oncologist went well and all I need to do is keep taking my medicine and keep getting stronger.
So Happy Mother's Day to all the women out there.

One Week On

I'm a week out of the hospital and I feel good.  Hardly use the walker at all and going longer without pain medication.
Starting to do a few household chores and give Mac some free time.  He mopped floors today and is now out playing in the yard.  I meet with my Oncologist tomorrow.
I'm feeling blessed.

DONE!!!!

I'm through with radiation and rang the bell to indicate I'm done.  Feel great.  Don't have to go back for 30 days, though I meet with my Chemo Doctor this Friday.  It feels so good to be done.
Hauled myself up the 10 stairs to get in the house and feel myself getting stronger every day.
So much to look forward to.  They will do a CAT scan in 90 days to see how things are going.  I'm going to get through this and get on with my life.  Thanks to my treatment team and Mac, they've made this possible.

A New Post Finally

It's been a while, but I've been sick.  I lost all of my white blood cells and most of my red blood cells too.  As a consequence I got pneumonia and ended up in the hospital for about 2 weeks. I came home yesterday.  I'm a bit wobbly,  but feeling so much better.  I have 2 more radiation treatments and then we'll do some long term planning.
It feels so good to be home.

Here are some more paintings, they are some of my most treasured possessions. More to come.
