Tip Toe Thru the Tulips..

Monday was a real sucky day....probably the worst so far. I guess after another 3 weeks of chemo- my body has just had enough. Linda called me at a bad moment (fetal position crying on the floor) and even though I tried to cover it up- she knew something was up...later on I opened the front door and there was a beautiful bouguet of flowers- pink and yellow tulips- and a crack me up laughing card!

Denise came by on her day to visit "the sick and infirm" loaded down with meals and a salad to make me eat something healthy. She made turkey, homemade stuffing, gravy and broccalli. I hid it all in the vegetable drawer (the boys never go in there!) so we can have a nice meal tonight after bb. Last night I had to drag myself to work- and the boys feel they have a pass to get fast food on Monday nights- even if there is food in the fridge. So- they would have eaten the turkey had they found it-along with whatever fastfood they had. Just don't tell them my hiding place..... Denise also brought another meal and more turkey for a meal that we froze. She is also on a knitting roll- has made me 2 soft cotton hats to wear at home- kinda like those baby knitted hats.

Linda and I leave today around 11 for a port. Wish they had a drive thru for that....Even though it is only a 30 min. procedure- I will be at Edward's 4-5 hours. Wed. will be a work day- should be feeling ok, Th is a CAT scan and Fri the roles are reversed as I take Linda to her procedure.

Keep up the positive karma and prayers.....


  1. Love the hiding place!!! Hope the port went okay today.


  2. Sorry friend! Hope Tuesday was much better!!! Denise you rock!!! Hope the port proceedure went well!!!
