Everytime I get on this blog and read about all your wonderful friends in the area, all I can say is "Wow!! Are you blessed!" They sure are taking good care of you! I wish I lived closer.


Tulips...a sign of spring, new beginnings and hope. Linda...what a beautiful move!!! rock Martha Stewart!!! Wish I could be like that!!!

So glad to hear from you on here everyday!!! Hoping your Tuesday was better!!!

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.....
