Ahhhh....The Florida weather sounds lovely! I'm glad that you had a nice time on your vacation.

Sending prayers your way for tomorrow's treatment.

I hope you have a great day today!

Denise, I am a huge Norman Rockwell lover, that exhibit sounds wonderful!

I think planning a cruise sounds like a great idea. I am betting the rates on that new ship will drop over time, so its probably a good idea to go ahead and book on another ship. Having something to look forward to and plan is good medicine for the body and mind!

I will be thinking about you tomorrow. You are getting those treatments knocked off one by one!

Good job getting a healthy shopping list and shopping done!

Let us know how tomorrow goes.

The treatment was ok this time but it seemed like we were there forever. They had to use the clot buster for the port again so that takes about an extra 1/2 hour while they fiddle with that, then the nurse had the drip on the wrong speed which was very slow.She didn't discover the error until the 2nd drug was almost 2/3 done. Oh well, lucky I'm a patient patient.

So far, so good with the side-effects but I expect they'll kick in later today. I've been doing my preventive measures so hopefully that will work!

I plan to go to the pool this afternoon after the old ladies leave. I love having it almost to myself-its very therapeutic. I will do some PT exercises and also walk and do a little paddling just so I can back into the swing of things. I really hope this builds up my strength a little cause I'm so wimpy right now. Wish me luck!!!!

I also plan to start filling the bags for the Ronald Mc. D. House today. Its amazing how much stuff we've gathered already. I'm really excited about doing this and hope to make it an ongoing project.

We're getting another snow storm again. It looks like it will start late tomorrow and snow most of the day on Sat. Looks like we'll need to do a grocery run tonight.DH has been so good about picking up things that we need after work, so I guess I need to start a list.

Have a great day everyone!!!

Hi Denise,

Sending lots of good thoughts and prayers your way. I hope the side effects are minimal for you.

That is a wonderful thing that you are doing for the Ronald Mc Donald house.

We're supposed to get some snow here too, but the forecasters don't know how much. I guess if the storm takes a slightly more northern trek, we could be in for a lot! Where o where is spring?!?!?

Hope you have a great day today!

Denise, I remember from my mom's port how that clot thing can just add to the hours you spend there. I was thinking about you on Tuesday and am so glad that so far, side affects are not a problem. Good job getting to the pool, I love my rec center pool when its not crowded. I find water so relaxing anyway and when its not full of other people, so much the better!

I talked with Dan's aunt (who lives outside of DC) and I guess the storm you are getting is the same one she is. I hope you can just relax inside where its warm and enjoy not being outside this weekend!

We're snowbound! So far about 14 inches and 20-25 expected. DH did some grocery shopping on Thurs. after work, so we're all set. Yesterday he worked 1/2 day so we went to Bahama Breeze for lunch (perfect before a snow storm) then to see "Up In The Air" with George Clooney. We had a $10.00 BB card (got it for leaving my business card) and free movie tickets, so I was a cheap date.

I managed to get 16 bags filled the other day, so I feel good about that. I just need to gather more things before I finish the rest. They look nice with a welcome card, stickers and bows.

Amy, this is the same storm as DC is getting, and they may be hit just as hard as we are.

Tracy, I agree with you about spring. Its tough being here some days in the dismal winter. I really need to get myself out of the house every day even if I just go to the library or go to the park and read if the day is sunny. It really does make a difference.

My Mom is in Florida at my brother's until Wed. She certainly picked the right week to escape!

We're about ready to have breakfast, and later DH is making a white seafood pizza. Yum!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Forgot to mention that I'm doing petty well managing my side effects this time. I'm fatigued and having some mouth issues, but other than that the discomfort is minimal. I'm feeling very thankful!!!!!!

Denise, I am glad you guys have provisions to keep you inside this weekend and out of that weather! One thing about it, at least its a weekend. I hear you on getting out of the house every day. If I have a day where I don't, even if I enjoyed it, I'll often end up feeling depressed and blah by day's end. I hope this storm clears out soon and you can have some sunny days next week. I am ready for spring and I know you are too!

So glad the side affects are minimal. Do you get thrush in your mouth? That is what my mom always used to get and it was very uncomfortable. You just hang in there with all of that and I am sending some good thoughts and prayers out your way. And I'll hope for some warm weather to melt all that snow too!

I'm glad to hear that the side effects have been minimal for you, Denise.

I'm sorry to hear about the snow. We got about 6-10" here. That's good that you have provisions to get you through the weekend. Sounds like a great time to watch a good movie or to curl up with a good book.

I hope you have a nice Saturday!

Just wanted to pop by quickly to tell you what's going on with DH. He's been dealing with eye/vision problems for several years now and over the weekend he developed another problem. We spent Monday afternoon at 2 different eye drs. The first was his optamologist (sp?)who then referred him to a retina specialist. Turns out he has a detached retina and has to have emergency surgery today at the Wills Eye Hospital in Phila. I can't believe this is happening! I'm thankful that we have access to such great hospitals in Phila. but this involves downtown parking garages and some distance walking. Our son is going to take us over there so I won't have to walk as far and he'll be able to sit with me while Gary is in surgery. The dr. is optimistic about being able to re-attach the retina, but his vision may not return to normal. Gary works for a government defense contractor and builds electronics with the use of a dual microscope. He's really concerned that he might not be able to do his job when this is over.

Please say a prayer for us today!!!! Thanks for listening.

Praying for both of you, Dee! Hopefully your DH will recover fully & quickly! And I'm glad you are managing the effects so well. My sister swore that the key was believing that she was going to not have the bad side effects & keep going. Hopefully next treatment will go a bit quicker.

Hi friends!

Things have settled down a little bit here. Gary's surgery was successful as far as the re-attachment of the retina goes, however it will be weeks before we know about his vision. He had a follow-up yesterday and the doc said things look good. He has to go back on Monday for the second follow-up with the doc. who did the surgery and see what he thinks. All this was going on while we had another snowstorm from Tues. night into Wed. We got about 12 more inches on top of the 24 inches we got on Sat. He's not able to lift more than 20 lbs. due to the pressure it causes, and I have absolutely no energy or stamina right now, so our neighbor was kind enough to take care of the snow removal...my car included.

Thanks to all of you who were thinking about us during this ordeal! I will be so happy when summer is here and I have some energy to enjoy getting out of the house.

Hi Denise,

Sending a gentle your way. You've had a lot going on this week! I'm glad to hear that your DH's surgery went well. We will keep him in our prayers.

I am so thankful that your neighbor was able to help out with snow removal. You guys got a TON of snow!

I hope you have a nice weekend. Please try and take it easy, okay?

Denise, I am so sorry I missed what has been going on with you and Gary. I am so glad the surgery went well and that your neighbor and son have been there to help you both. I am saying prayers that Gary's sight returns to normal. You guys have had so much on your plate lately. Hang in there!
