All is fine in Schmittville

I know many of you worry when you don't hear from me in a while.  I'm sorry about that.  Sometimes I just don't have much to say or it feels like a repeat. 

Rick is working on his retirement plans and is looking forward to some quality time off.  I'm right there with him looking forward to some time at Desert Aire and having a little fun.

Tuesday is chemo day for me and a doctor's appointment for Rick.  He still hasn't been feeling well (we were hoping that he would get back to feeling "normal" once he was chemo free for a while) so we're hoping the doctor has some plans to get him back on his feet.  He's extremely fatigued and doesn't have much of an appetite.  I know those are normal habits for cancer patients, but being chemo free we thought those symptoms might go away.

I've been feeling really good.  I wake up each morning coughing terribly, but after I use my nebulizer...I'm back to breathing as good as I get.  Each afternoon I take a nap then wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on the rest of the night.  I've been trying to get out a couple of times a week and have a little fun, grocery shopping, or just taking care of business that needs my attention.

The weather has been awesome so I'm going to venture out again today.  Please remember, if you don't see anything on the me.  The phone line is always open and if I'm sleeping, someone else will answer and have you call back later.  Thank you all for being such great supporters we are lucky to have you ;)

Dreaming Big,


  1. FYI... Angie's test results came back fine. No Cancer. Thank God.

  2. So glad to hear the news about Angie. I can't imagine how tough this week has been for you all. As always, you are all in my prayers.
