I don't have much to say, but I am sure I will come up with something. I have done okay since chemo, I have been tired, as usual, but not too bad. Today was a bit of a crummy day for some reason. I think half of it was mental, just one of those days I didn't have energy which affected my mood (is it affect or effect: sorry English people, I don't remember). I was having some strange symptoms, abdominal cramping and some odd bleeding, so I had to go get abdominal xrays and bloodwork done today. Everything came back normal so that is good. They talked about stopping one of the chemo drugs because of the bleeding. I am a little concerned about stopping it, it is supposed to be a great drug. I don't want to halt the progress that is being made, ya know. Anyway, we have a fun weekend ahead, I will tell you all about it next week.. I will keep it top secret for now, hehe.
My heart goes out to Kelsey Smith's family. I can't imagine their heartache. This and all the many tragedies and senseless acts that happen are so frustrating and saddening to me. I was praying that they would find her safe and not harmed. I don't always understand why these things happen. I know we will never know why some people can be so inhumane. I am sure though that she is in Heaven. It is another reminder that our time is short, we have to live today. I sometimes feel like a broken record saying that but I think that is one of my main messages from this experience. Maybe I am going through this to remind people through my life that we are to "live on earth as it is in heaven".
On a more upbeat note: We tried to put Ella on the potty today. When I was going to the bathroom, she kept saying potty, potty, so I tried to get her on the potty. She didn't want to go but then proceeded to run off without her diaper on. Then grandma went potty to show her and as soon as grandma started to go Ella pottied right on the floor. It was hilarious. I guess she is not quite ready for pee peeing in the potty. It is so cute seeing her run around without her diaper, she's got such a cute tushie, you all know what I am talking about. Anyway, I am going to go eat some crunch berry captain crunch cereal, I am addicted! I hope you all have a great weekend. oh, is anyone else appauled that Paris Hilton is out of jail. ugh! don't get me started.
Enjoy the sun and time with your family and friends this weekend.
Here are some new photos of Ella and the family.
