 Mike had his surgery and all went well.  It is not a fun time for him but hes doing just fine.  He has only taken one pain pill.

We have another follow up next Tuesday.   Road Trip.

I am slowly crocheting more hoods.  I can't seem to do anything but sit and stare.  Toasted body, mind, and spirit it catches up with you sometimes.  I need a jump start.

Just a short update we are OK.  Never got to see Ann my friend.  I ask about her the day we arrived, but she was not on. Then the day we left I went to the desk and ask to leave her a message and she was there, but we were walking out the door.  I am unlucky.

So heads up buttercups have a great up coming week.

The Best of Times the Worst of Times

 Well be had the CT scan the 7th and the spots are smaller and the large spots are no bigger. This is the new plan: Preop January19, surgery January27 (re hook up),  a month off and surgery on the lungs, a rest then more chemo.  We have been at this for more than a year. This last bit of waiting to see if the smaller spots had spread got me down and out.  I didn't sleep for two days before the appointment. Its like it crashed on me all of it all at once.  We got good news so I am pulling myself up by my boot straps.  Mike just shut down thought I was going to loose him.  He just slept and ate what he wanted.....which was not enough. Hes back on the path and gained 14 lbs. I was raised to just stand up and be that person , and you know it took all I could this round to muster up to forge on.  I have gained so much weight... I cook he doesn't eat it and well I do.  I have got to stop that.

   Thank God I  have prayer and Faith. I have learned alot about about friends and family alike during this time.

Its all about me now.  Hair totally white ...I am loving it. Still knitting and crocheting cancer hats and about everything else that catches my eye.  Been sick, but better now.  Thanks to all that pray for us like I have said this before, but its true its no small thing.  Blessing my Dears

Merry Christmas My Dears

 Here is my forever Christmas card I put it up each year. I have explained this picture in a post  titled my 1950s Christmas and the next year was part 2. I remember this so clearly.

 I really don't feel like posting.  Everything  is on hold for us until Janurary 7th. Mike's Dr. said we are in a state of limbo. So there is no reason to update whats going on until I know something, and that will be Jan. 7th. I have been struggleing with it all.  I do request prayer.   I just don't want to think right now so if I am not asleep (which is more than I should) I am about doing busy work. Cancer hats...done ...more on needles...blanket half done....scarf on needles half done. Never in my life to I start a project and leave one unfinished. Seems I have developed a joy of starting things....honey sometime you get your joy where you can find it.  Sad to say excess eating seems to be a new habit as well. Well my lovelies hugs and may you have a blessed Christmas, and I truly mean that...love sent.

  Some of my pictures I downloaded disappeared....of course they did.  Cancer hats.  I am making a mindless scarf for my son now.

Mike is about the same. This chemo round is really kept him down.  I have to remind myself to treat him like the man  he is, and not my little boy.  He is acting like a naughty little boy at times.  I have to follow thru on everything that he HAS to take or do.....some how he has it in his head things are optional.... you know if he did it yesterday  You mean today...again.  Yes sweetie today and everyday. I am the food, ostomy bag, medicine giver, fluid intake checker   Nazis. Be very afraid peeps I could be coming to a neighborhood near you. bahhahaha.

Leaves acorns love them hate them.. I am in over my head guess I will have to call someone to come help me.  I should take pictures they are knee deep in places.

Started thinking about Christmas. My DD will do Christmas dinner (God Bless her) her and her husband are wonderful cooks and their house is much larger than ours.  Presents will be money with one gift to open this year.  I think I will just put up mom's tiny tree. Next year we will be back in the saddle I hope.  If thing get worse I am going to buy and air freshener tree so I can just stick it on the wall someplace.  I will get Mike a belated gift ( a Henry rifle).   I don't know what hes getting me yet ..... I haven't made up my mind.  I kind of want yarn and I need a new stove (for a long time),but have you seen the new Dyson's. a little pricey, but I am so worth it hahahahaha.

   Well my dears... I am off to pay bills and think about supper. Bless each of you with joy and the spirit of kindness this week....wish it back.

Three Down Three To Go

 We are half done with chemo. Today I took the pump off...3 more times I have to do that . They all most didn't do the chemo this week .  Mike has been really sick...and cranky ( I understand).  He seems better this week even with the chemo.

Guess what, I am letting my hair grow out to kind of a silver. I never wanted to color my hair. Mike pitched a fit for me to, and my daughter begged me to keep it till she got married that was 2 years ago. So I am almost there with the grow out. You see in Mikes mind he remembers me with long black hair. It was almost blue black like my dad's and grandma's. I am not prissy about aging I am 66 years old and nothing is going to change that. My aging has never bothered me like my friends. I don't want to scare small children, but I don't want to look all dolled up like an aging whore either. Did I just say that oh well I will let it stand.

I am still making cancer hats wished  I could download pictures like I use to.  I am sure there is a way I just don't know how.

Next chemo visit and I am teaching the women there how to use circulars.  They are all excited and it makes our day go faster.

Well this year for Halloween I am going as a grandma....I let my hair grow out for it.  Mike is going as a chemo patient named chemo sobbie at least that's our story.

Got the leaves off the deck (twice), and you can't even tell it. 

Well Peeps going to pack it in and maybe finis a hat and a Klondike bar.  Happy Halloween my pretties and your little dogs to........and cats.

Ups and Downs

 Mike is not feeling well.  I am not sure what is wrong.  We tend to blame everything on the chemo. He has been sleeping almost around the clock, vomiting, for awhile he had cramps in his side and arm......scared me, but that's gone now.  We have more chemo Monday....dread that. So all in all he is not feeling well and I am beside myself with worry.

News, well let me see. T was here Saturday and picked up the costume.  I do believe Mimi scored. My other set of grand kids may be here this weekend.  I have been knitting hats and attempted a new pattern I like very much. I also did a bedroom redo.  I like to find sweet deals and then decorate around them.  I got a really nice curtain for $5 and a duvet cover for 20. The Duvet cover set had shams, and a small pillow. I need to put the picture up, but I took it with my phone so maybe next time.  It looks nice and I covered up and ugly comforter to boot. Oh yes...Wal-Mart discount bin.

Leaves and acorns have taken over tomorrow is the big confrontation.  I never bought punkins or mums this year, and  I love doing Fall things.

I will tootle on to bed now I cannot watch the Cubs loose.  May you enjoy your week and be blessed without measure.

OH, yes after thought my friend nurse Ann did get her bag.  She thinks it was a gift to her but it was a gift for me for I focused on something I love to do for someone that wanted my kitchen stuff.....I have overloaded everyone else with it. So she was a victim and never knew it hahahaha.
Yes this is more than likely me.
. Hugs bugs
