Good morning Jen, B/W, Sue, Rollerdonna and all who follow.
Though I got up five or six times (during one of which waking periods I re-relaxed myself with another glass of buttermilk) I slept extremely well and don't feel so tired and drugged this morning.
Sorry Sue that you have the rain. Last evening was supposed to bring extremely violent thunder boomers and I unplugged my computer, etc. but they never developed, at least in this part of Greene County. Probably the northern part near I-81 got whacked. Periodic thunder storms are forecast for today. Hope you have a fun trip this weekend!
B/W, your son's refrigerated boot sounds too cool! Gosh, the stuff that medical science comes up with!! Isn't it absolutely amazing B/W how kids bounce back! If it were I who had the same surgery, I'd still be on morphine (or if they took me off that, some more conventional across the counter liquid analgesic - maybe both!
Glad Jen that you finally have the sunny weather that has been lacking throughout your summer up there in Vermont.
Sounds as if you might have conjunctivits or "pink eye" R/D. Better get that checked as it's quite contagious and you don't want Jim to have to drive with one eye along with you driving with one eye!
Oh, for all you who are addicted to the tanning bed route, just heard on TV where it is the second leading cause of cancer, behind smoking. I've thought all along they should have never allowed them and anyway, back in Victorian times, an anemic looking complexion was the rage!
Took Fran up to the hospital yesterday for cervical spine x-rays to determine a nagging pain in her neck along with a doppler sonogram to determine the amount of plaque that her CT scan found in her carotid artery. Probably nothing, but it's best to be safe than sorry.
She is so looking forward to going back to Va. Beach next month for a few days but I admit to only you guys that I'm becoming more apprehensive by the day. Her lymph nodes feel not to have decreased measurably in size and we're both praying heavily that her blood work will be at least as good as last month. If the platelets fall and the WBC rises significantly we both know it means a return to chemo and that she only got two and a half years from her first round as opposed to the five or six we expected to get. Each subsequent round lasts a shorter time. We'll deal with whatever comes and just pray that my current feelings remain unjustified.
Prayers for all those on the list accompanied by request for Blessing upon all!
