Sweet spring!

Well, spring is just gorgeous! I have loved to go out and take a peak at the beautiful blossoms. The rain has really visited us, and brought much needed moisture to our dry climate. So everything is greening up nicely, and turning into a peace of heaven on earth! I am looking forward to planting my seeds , and moving around my Lavenders, and Hollyhocks, and probably sneaking and planting a couple of new rosebushes! The birds have been waking us up every day with their beautiful cheery songs , and I am still trying to zoom in with my cameras and catch a glimpse of their sweet little faces. We have wished for sunnier days..... but the skies have been beautiful as well ,with it's splendorous dark clouds. My treatments have gone remarkably well, and I am so grateful for this. I have had two Chemo treatments so far in intervals of 3 weeks . After which, each time I go in every day for 10 days for my Nupigin shots( they help build my immunities from the chemo tearing it down!) During this time I am not really supposed to go out much, Can't get sick now! I am completely bald , which is a bit uncomfortable, but I have been trying to sport my fancy wigs, and scarves! The little boys do not like the scarves very well.... and the wigs are a little tight , and itchy!
We have had such an out pouring of wonderful deeds by so many beautiful people, " Thank You "so much everyone!!! We love you all! Hopefully I can get this thing into remission and pay you all back some day!!!! I would love to!!!

The big Easter Hunt

Posted by Picasa
I hope everyone had a nice Easter! We had a great time getting together with those of our family that could come. We also try to get together for an Easter dinner , and agreat big Easter Egg hunt ! All of our kids,and grandchildren, hunt for eggs , and then they trade them in for fun gifts of candy or toys. It has been something we all look forward to , and is always a fun tradition to carry on. Spring has had a hard time trying to come here, one day 60 degree weather, one day 6 inches of snow has gone back and forth like that, but Easter cooperated well enough , and we were able to go outside for the hunt, and have a great time.

Or is it CHOCOLATE ?

Well, I had my 1st treatment on Friday...Mar.26. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous ..... One hears so many horrible stories that have to do with chemo..... Does it hurt? Am I going to throw up the whole time? Chemicals that are pumped into your body like "Red devil" can never be too good right?? Marshall came and sat with me, and everyone equipped me with all sorts of expressions of nice.... Anything from a neck pillow, mp3 player, reading material, cute socks, the list could go on and on ....everyone has been so kind. And of course.......CHOCOLATE....(which, I will have to say I hung on tight to) You know... the song I grew up with was "Just a spoonful of sugar....helps the medicine go down...." So I knew that would take away any pain .....Right?.... I was also pretty nervous because just 2 days before I had surgery to insert into my chest "The Port" ( Which of course my boys decided would turn me into an alien,........... or pod person for sure! Anyway that was still feeling like I was in one of those old cowboy and Indian movies ...and they yanked the arrow out...LEAVING the arrow head of course! But to make a long story longer.... I was there from 9:30 until 5:00 , and didn't throw up once! Of course I felt a little LOOPY but anyone can handle that right? I took all of the medicine like a good girl should.... and I have really been blessed to feel quite well! Starting the next day , I began my 10 days of shots to boost my now "zilch" immune system......(Hmmmmm...I wonder if I can get the Swine flu again?) So see... I can do this thing!!!
Now just patiently awaiting.......the hairloss...
WELL....... and This is pure EYE CANDY..... this also helps!
