Check out Yee Haw Bob's photos. We had a blast with him at POR. He is definitely worth checking out. So much fun and another great Disney treasure!
I was reading about Yeehaa Bob in Celebrations Mag. What time does he play, he sounds interesting?

His show is awesome! He plays the River Roost lounge from 8 pm to 11:45 pm. He doesn't stop! The show is really gun. First set is for younger kids. As he moves thru the evening his music is geared more to adults. Lots of audience participation. He is there Wed to Sat. I always thought it would be hard to get there without a car but it is an easy boatride from DD. Definitely not to be missed! Loads of fun!

Happy 4th of July to all Groupies!!!

Thought I would finally check in and give an update from me and mom and a happy birthday to all that have had one, hope all had good trips that have been lately, good planning to those getting ready in the next few and I am also so glad that Stan is better.

I got my "graduation" certificate Thursday June 30th, for my last radiation treatment!! The area is a little "sunburned", but my radiation oncologist has been very pleased with how I have tolerated the treatments. I started my chemo pill last night, so now I will wait and see if I tolerate that as well.

Sorry I cannot give as good of news for my darling Mom. She has gotten progressively worse. She finished her last chemo pill Wednesday and we made the decision not to do any more since the side effects from it are getting as bad as the other chemo was and the cancer is not responding to it at all. The numbers are going higher and higher and the pain is constant. She has lost the use of her legs, so she is now totally bedridden and we left home health Friday and switched to our local hospice agency. We had our first nurse visit today and they are trying some new meds since even the morphine (which we just started 3 weeks ago) is not totally working anymore. I have slowly been taking care of legal issues that have been needed and am making notes of several of her wishes so that I can carry them out. I don't want to loose her, but it is really hard to see her in such pain, so we pray for God's will and make her as comfortable as possible.

As usual I thank my Groupie friends for your support and all of your listening ears to be able to give an occasional vent. I really do wish that each and every one of you has a great holiday weekend.

So happy and relieved you have responded to the radiation. Congrats on the graudation ! I wish you continued improvement !
In regards to your mother....my heart goes out to you. Dh and I were in a very similar situation in 2004 so I know how difficult and a heartbreaking a time this is. Thoughts going out to you and prayers up to heaven......hang in there.

Twokats - Congrats on your recovery, but so sorry to hear about your mother. I lost a dear friend to cancer several years ago and it went much like you are describing with your mother. I am so sorry for what you are going through, and the pain that she is in. I will keep you in my prayers.

So glad you are doing well. I wish the same could be said for your mom. So sorry she is going through this. My prayers go out to her.

Happy Independence Day Groupies,

Today by "baby" turns 21! We celebrated yesterday, every year we have a party for him and my dad, who turned 80 yesterday. It was a wonderful day.

Hope you all have a nice day!

Twokats - hooray on your good news! So glad to hear you've been responding well to the treatment. I'm very sorry to hear the bad news about your DM. The final part of the journey can be very difficult to watch. My heart breaks for you & your mom. I will continue to pray for God's blessings & guidance for all of your during this difficult time.

Bittersweet news, Kathy. Praying for your continued recovery and strength. And praying for your Mom, and God's will.

Peace be with you both.
