Hey Everyone- I have had a couple of great days, yaaaa! It feels so good to feel normal, not dragging myself around pretending to be normal or sometimes not pretending, flat out showing it. I am happy that everytime Doug askes if I am okay, I can say "yes" and not complain about something. What a great feeling these couple of days have been. The weather is great too! My mom and I did a little shopping yesterday, got some new pajamas for Ella and a couple of things that weren't on the list but I couldn't resist. Hey that rhimes, ha.
Earlier in the week, I did want to extend my sympathies and prayers to all the people at Virginia Tech, I, as I know you all were as well, devastated and saddened by this event. I am praying for all who lost someone and those that were affected. My heart goes out to you all!!! (Not that anyone from there reads this, but ya never know).
I have to say Happy Birthday to my nephew, Keaton, who is three today. My mom left today to be there with them and my dad goes tonight. I wish I could be there to celebrate. But I am so glad Andrea and her family will be moving to KC only in a few weeks. We are so excited.
This weekend I am doing a fun evening out with some ladies to Dream Dinners, making some meals I can freeze. I am looking forward to that. Then Nana and Grandpa are taking Ella on Saturday and Saturday night. Doug and I are heading out to my parents lakehouse to have a night to ourselves. Much needed, so thank you Nana and Grandpa. I can sleep in, ahhhh, and get up when I want. It is supposed to be 80 degrees so it should be a perfect day at the lake. I hope you all have a fun weekend as well! Enjoy the great weather.
Monday, I have a small procedure in the morning before a fun filled day of chemo. I am going under general anesthesia for my left ureteral stent replacement. They have to replace it every 3-4 months, ugh. As some of you know, I had to have it placed for possible hydronephrosis which we thought was causing severe back pain a while ago. They did try to remove it after my surgery but the pain came back, so I guess I will just have to go in every few months for awhile to have it replaced. Doug will have to drag my groggy tush to the cancer center were I can plop in the chair and get plugged up for chemo. Next week may be interesting.
I want to thank Lisa Mudge for coming over this afternoon to help me out with Ella since my mother is gone. I greatly appreciate it!
I better go, I can hear Ella in her room talking, nap must be over...Everyone, have a great weekend! I will talk to you soon. shawndra
