It has been a lovely Sunday and the days are obviously getting longer again. Can't really say we have had a Winter yet. Several days you could call cold and one snow day with the temp rising into the 60's the very next day. I'm not complaining at all - have enjoyed the moderate weather we have been having.
For example, here is a picture of him sewing a tear in his pillow.

My condition hasn't changed that much but this week has had some pleasant moments including a visit from a dear old friend who was visiting her Dad

Page has been here all week working from home and yesterday in her company's Raleigh facility. One of her VP's (she used to work for him in Atlanta before he was promoted to bigger and better things) was on-site in Raleigh while she was there and asked her to come back this morning because there were things he wanted to discuss with her. Turns out he had spoken with her boss in Atlanta who told him about me and BigD and he wanted to see how she was holding up. He told her she can come up here and work out of that office when she feels she needs to be here. I was thrilled to hear that. She is going with us to my appointment at Duke tomorrow morning and then back to Atlanta. Not sure when she will be back but might not be until my treatments start. They are trying to get me well enough to have the treatments and even though I have improved some. I am no where close to being well enough. The thrush in my mouth is still there and since I'm now on an antibiotic for a bladder infection, not sure when it will go away. Have 4 more days worth of medicine for it so am hoping the meds will kick in soon. I'm trying to be a grown-up and not whine too much about how much I want her here. She will never know how much it means to me and BigD that she takes so much time with us. We do appreciate it. I also appreciate every one's cards, visits, emails and especially prayers and encouragement. It all means so much to me. BigD is feeling pretty good - working part-time again. I thought today might be a turn-around kind of day for me when I first woke up and actually had a moment when I felt a little excitement but it went downhill shortly before lunch time. Eileen brought fresh roses this week - they are gorgeous - yellow this time. She is so sweet and generous. She also brought us a case of Ensure and large supply of Kleenex from Costco. I go through almost two boxes of Kleenex a day. Page2 went to an open house at the middle school she will be attending next year. I know - I hate it. When did she get old enough for middle school? I know I've been slack lately but I haven't been on the computer too much. Will do better when I start feeling better - promise. Feel bad that Page has to drive so long tomorrow since she is now on antibiotics for a respiratory infection. She has had a really bad cough for several days (so has BigD but he said he has had enough of doctors to last him awhile). Our doctor couldn't work her in this morning so she went to the Urgent Care that Roseanne and Sher work at. Hopefully they will kick in a little and she will be much better for the trip tomorrow.
