Okay - it has started. Some of the side effects they tried to prepare me for. Nausea was the first one and now both sides of my throat are raw beyond belief (especially the left side where most of the surgery took place) and hurts unbelievably to swallow anything a lot of times. Sher called earlier this week and said she was coming over to make me smoothies one day and we picked today.
Yep - a sweet bouquet of "happy" flowers! Such a sweet young man. I also want to share a picture from last weekend when Ann came over with the kids. Biscuit has fallen in love with my children's "OLD" green rocking chair. You can also see the little stash of toys she finds in the back room. I don't have many left for kids her age but
she seems okay
playing with those few. What a pistol she is. I know Ann is enjoying every moment with her. I can't believe how much she has grown. So here I am - 9 treatments in and all next week has been scheduled. I'm still trying not to anticipate the worst that can come but deal with what is already happening. I'm grateful to have such supportive family and friends to encourage me. Leah just called me to tell me she is coming down next weekend - to see us, for our 46th anniversary and to bring her Mom's carpet steamer to clean my pitiful carpet in the living room. Man - it needs it. What are we doing for our anniversary? Well - I considered asking for some 1/2 (each ear) carat diamond studs like Page1's but we are getting a new gas furnace/air conditioner. Yeah - that's where we are in life - diamonds or furnace. No contest. I think they will be putting it in next week so BigD and I may be sleeping somewhere else for several nights. SO glad this week is over and I have a two day break - I'm not one to wish my life away like this - but really - SO GLAD.
