Happy Birthday to my beautiful daughters

33 years ago on February 28, Rick and I were blessed with 2 beautiful (inside and out) daughters. Who would have known after all these years they would still like us?  They continue to bring us joy when we least expect it.  We didn't spend the day with them yesterday as Amy (and Mel) went to Canada for the closing ceremonies, and Angie (and Shannon) went to the zoo and Seattle for the day.  We're going to celebrate tonight instead.  Happy Birthday girls. :)

Our friends, Bob and Dy, surprised us on Saturday afternoon for a quick visit.  It was a pleasant surprise but very short.  We spent Saturday afternoon chatting up a storm, went and picked up some take out for dinner and we visited some more.  The came back to the house on Sunday morning and we laughed all morning until Dave and Val got home (they had Bob and Dy's dog Woody).  Friends really can lift your spirits even when you thought they didn't need any help.

Yesterday Rick showed a little improvement from how he's been feeling (let me stress the "little").  He still is not himself so we've got a long way to go.  The only thing he's been doing well at is getting sleep but apparently his body needs it.

He says his chest is feeling better and that gives me relief.  I could only imagine there was something in there I didn't want to hear about.  Let's pray this is his week for recovery.

Tomorrow is another big day at Seattle Cancer Care.  I'm due for chemo, but before they do it, they have to review my CT scan and brain MRI from Friday.  If the stuff in my brain in growing, we may stop chemo and do some radiation on the brain.  I'm confident that everything is STABLE and I'll just keep getting that rotten chemo that makes me feel lousy for a week.  That's my pick of the week.

I only got up this early to get some water.  I think I'll go snuggle back into bed.  I have an early day tomorrow.  No need in making it 2 days in a row :)

Dreaming Big,

PS.  You should see my new looks like a piece of art.  Thanks Dave, Val, Jake, Angie, and Shannon.... HGTV here we come :)
