I hope you all had a great weekend. We had a fun filled weekend at the Lake of the Ozarks with Doug's sister and her family and another family. It was just what the doctor ordered, a little getaway weekend. No projects at home, yaaa! We stayed in a really nice condo with a hot tub, our own room, patio overlooking the lake, a grill, even an area for the adults to "party" with a bigscreen TV and a poker table. Saturday we rented a boat, a tube, and a waverunner and spent most of the day on the lake. Sunday morning we woke up to rain which was perfect, the girls got to do a short shopping spree at the outlet malls and then it was back to reality! Thank you Krissy and Ed for planning the trip. We had a great time with all of you! Ella had a blast too, she got to swim in the pool and watch all the commotion in the boat. Truly a great weekend. We finished it off watching the disappointing Sopranos Finale, anyone else disappointed. I just started watching about a year or so ago with Doug so I wasn't all that invested but it still didn't live up to the hype.
I am glad to hear Paris is back in jail, I didn't get all the details but I think she needs to do her time for her crime!
As far as my health goes, I am doing well, I had a few concerns last Thursday, we got those addressed and everything is fine. Just the typical day to day pains that come and go that a little "medication" can't fix. I go in to get my labs drawn again today, the needle poking never ends, good thing I got used to needles. When I was very young I hated needles, as most kids do. I would fight and flail to try to avoid a shot. I even stopped telling my mom when I had a sore throat because I didn't want to have to go to the doctor and get a shot in my butt. Ugh.
I got a call from Chris Ireland on friday, who was also heading to a lake for the weekend. He was intending to talk to one of Jen's doctors, who they became close friends with during her treatment. He wanted to talk to him about my case and see if he had any insight as far as other treatment. I think that is incredible that Chris cares enough to do that for me. He hardly knows me and he is so generous to me. Thank you Chris! We are hoping to get together with him, Jan and the girls sometime. There is a "force" that brought us together!
I better go get ready for my labwork. I have to look like I feel good, otherwise they might keep me there longer or stick me in the hospital, I don't want that! hehe. Ella and I are on our own today, we miss daddy but we know he has to get back to work. Have a great week everyone. shawndra
