Today was the Dr. visit after the Ultra-Sound, lab work and PET scan. The lab work was good, the Ultra-sound showed no blood clots, but we need to work on the rest :-( The PET scan showed several new tumors and that several of the others had increased some. She’s sending me for radiation on the right hip…and putting me on another chemo drug. All that is contingent on insurance in it’s almighty role approving the drugs.
Anyhow, I still feel fine and that’s the part that matters!
Visited with our Sister-in-Law for a few minutes. Her color is much better, she’s able to talk now that they’ve removed all the tubes…but it tires her out and she falls asleep mid sentence. She’s eating a little and sipping water. Her vitals have been better than they were in CCU. God is merciful, God be Praised. We’re keeping her in prayer…along with prayers for Norman. He’s exhausted. Think he’s going to go home for awhile tomorrow to deal with kids, bills and whatever needs to be tended to. He’s scared to go off and leave Martha as that will put him 2 hours away from the hospital…but he needs some rest and a break from that hospital room.
On a postive note – we had a nice, albeit late lunch at Olive Garden. I love their soups! We made the trip to Sam’s for kitty supplies and Wally World for my Rx. And I found a cool fake silver necklace! I found a “garden type” magazine with some of the coolest “reclaimed” ideas. Cannot wait to try a couple of them. little hint, one of them involves used vehicle tires! Ernie just shudders when I say “I think…” as he knows it’s something that’s going to cause him headaches, lol. He’s such a sweet, loving husband!
Our little garden box is bursting with lettuce, radishes, green onions and ? I think it’s the beets! Just the first seed leaves, but it’s a start :-) I need to fix some pots to plant the pepper seeds and some tomatoes. I’ll keep those inside until time to plant…IF they grow. I’ve never had much luck starting seedlings inside.
I managed to get the blocks sewn for Denise’s Lifesaver block swap! Yeah! Need to finish Sheryl’s NYD mystery quilt. Wanda and I got them cut out and the first steps done. She’s got her blocks nearly finsihed, so I’ve got to catch up!
It’s certainly been a busy day. I’ll have to go to work tomorrow to get some rest, lol.
