Lazy Days......

I've had the last two days off and I feel like I've done nothing!  Well - actually I got alot of reading done....you see, I have this "friend" who has turned me on to Steve Berry and I can't seem to put his books down.....

It is a sad state of affairs - I know there is nothing wrong with my resting but seriously I have so much to do - really, reading was not on the agenda!  Of course she's managed to give me enough reading material to last through my hospital stay for sure!

On Sunday I had just finished working 5 days in a row with 3 evenings until 10:00 thrown in and I was exhausted to say the least so in actual fact I needed two days to rest.  Tomorrow I go back until Monday and Tuesday I have surgery.

In the next few days I also want to get the house cleaned up, the laundry done and everything ready for me to come home to!  Jonathan will have his hands full once I get home - once I get up those stairs to my "oasis" he will be getting alot of exercise running up and down those stairs......Supposedly I will be in the hospital for 4 days (I have a funny feeling it may be until after the long weekend - note to self, take reading material - no problem there!).  Once home, after climbing two flights of stairs, I plan on staying put for at least a week ------ my Farmer's Wife awaits, many blocks ready to be stitched and then there's always reading!  Probably alot of sleeping too!  and maybe a little blogging!  We'll see!

Hard to plan ahead - will continue to play it by ear!  If I do get any quilting done in the next few days it will be a miracle but I honestly hope that I do - it's been awhile!

Can you tell that I can't wait to get this all over with - what a year!!!!!

Have a great day everyone!

I can't believe it....

Has it really been nearly two months since I blogged!  I am soooo bad!!!!!  ....and I've been through my last two chemo treatments already!  The last one was September 7th and I have fabulous news!

When I arrived on the 7th, Jonathan in tow, the first order of business was as usual, blood tests, then off to see the doctor!  He needed to examine me to see if we were going ahead with the surgery.....excuse me!  My plan is to be in the operating room on the 4th of October and you better be there!

The exam went well and the surgery is a go!  So I asked the doctor, what about the tumors on the lungs!  He looked at me like I was crazy and said - THE CT SCAN WAS CLEAR!!!!  Larry has left the premises - can you believe it! 

Needless to say I am ecstatic and looking forward to the end of this long journey - that being surgery on October 4th!  Of course - there is the recovery period of about 6 weeks but hopefully it will go without a glitch and I will be back up and quilting my heart out before you know it.....

I will try as hard as I can to keep you all updated on my progress.....

Have a great day everyone!
