Welcome Home!

I want to first and foremost welcome my sister and her family home. Andrea and her two kids should be arriving tonight in KC for good, yaaaa. Greg had to stay back for a couple more weeks to finish up his year at Rice University as assistant swim coach there. I can't believe this day is actually here, I have been begging my sister for years to return to Kansas and today is the day it has turned to reality. I am very excited.

I am a little late in doing this, but I got an email from someone at Discovery Channel recently. They wanted me to post some information about a show they are airing tonight on Discovery and I believe Discovery Health about "Living with Cancer". Ted Koppel is the host. Lance Armstrong and Elizabeth Edwards are just a few who will be on the show. It is on tonight, Sunday May 6th at 8pm. So please watch if you can. If you want to find more information, you can go to Discovery channel's website, I believe, .

So far it has been a great weekend. Last night, we celebrated Doug's birthday by going to Zona Rosa's comedy club. We had a great time with a lot of laughs. It was so hot yesterday, we finally turned on the air conditioning before we left last evening. We got home and it was no cooler in the house, I think we need to call and get the air conditioning fixed, yikes. Ella and Lexi (our dog) stayed over at Nana and Grandpa's last night. Thank you Nana and Grandpa for watching them for us, we appreciate all you do for us!!!! But it was kind of sad waking up without our lexi dog in our bed snuggling and not having Ella in the other room and seeing her wake up with a big smile on her face. I was also nervous because the weather was a bit creepy this morning. Dark, windy and almost green. yikes. Anyway, Doug just got home with the two of them, Lexi just jumped on my lap. I think she is nervous with the storms. I am going to go, play with my family.

I have chemo tomorrow and meet with the doctor. I will let you know how all goes. Enjoy your stormy Sunday.

Welcome Home Andrea, Keaton and Avery! shawndra
