Last day

| September 3, 2014

We are back from our “tour” of Central Texas. We went to the lake (got a few chiggers, itchy), went to Killeen for Willlace and Liz’s wedding, then to Taylor and Roundrock for a reunion. We had lots of good quality time hanging out with the family. I am still trying to get things unpacked and put away while washing all the dirty laundry. Got the big CT on Tuesday. It will let us know iif the cancer is growing, stable or reducing. Not looking forward to drinking that barium in the morning. I was trying to tell Tait how bad it was and i told him it was a blend of bad toothpaste and broccoli. He had to agree that was gross!! Glad to have his support!! He just turned the water hose on my bottom while i was digging weeds. I guess it looked like a prime target to him. i am laughing now. (i did not think it was so funny while it was happening) Off to karate lessons and more yard work.

last day

Well it is my last day of summer. I head back to work on Friday. Today i must have my yearly OB/GYN visit (what a joy) and then chemo following that. Not a great way to spend the day but things need to be done. Went to SeaWorld again yesterday. We went with three other kids. If i thought Tait moved at his own pace, whew, three really takes some time!!! Off to my appointments, i am anxious as Dr. Kapoor said that my CT looked good. Should get the specifics today. I am hoping for reduction in lesion size.
