Good morning everyone!!!!
If you read my birthday blog you know I had a wonderful day. In fact …it was a wonderful birthday weekend. Sullivan’s steak house was incredible and I would recommend it to everyone that would love a nice steak dinner with very nice people. Yesterday was just a plain old spaghetti and meatballs day. My “starting to get wide butt” was in my chaise lounge all day. Watching the NFL playoff games. My sis-in-law Libby came over for a visit with presents. A beautiful western decor cross, which I hung in our den, and other awesome gifts including a pair of pink horse designed rain boots.
I caught Lani and Bill’s CRUD! That’s the only word for it. Not like a cold, but cough and chest congestion. They are on antibiotics but I was afraid to take anything but Tylenol due to the fact I am not a doctor and I was scared if I took anything it might not go hand in hand with my chemo drugs. So I’m toughing it out. Bill loves it because I don’t have a voice (which he doesn’t hear anyway…in my opinion) and finds it amusing that I can’t pop off at him and others when I feel the need. It is quite frustrating, actually. I feel that everyone should hear my quips at life on occasion. You guys aren’t so lucky…I don’t need a voice to type.
It seems last week I was at the beckon call of Mother Nature. Bill was in the kitchen and heard a loud thump. Looked out on our back patio and a little bird had hit the window and was out cold. The sparrow was scooped up and held for about 2 minutes. I rubbed it’s little head as it was cupped in my hands. It looked up at me and more than likely I probably scared what life was left in him out of it. Bald, in PJ’s, and on a mission. Eventually, he spread his wings and then looked me right in the eyes, wrapped his little feet around my finger and hung out for a while. We really didn’t have too much to discuss. But when he was ready he took off. It was awesome. I love the way God gets our attention.
Our Aussie mix Moochie has hair that sheds everywhere. There is this invention they advertise on TV that is called a Shed Pal. If anyone has tried it on their pet would you let me know how it works. I was discussing the use of it with Moochie who did not seem real thrilled of the prospect of being groomed with this thing. If I could read dog minds I think he was probably saying “why don’t you just chase me around the house with the Dirt Devil”? Although I’m open to any suggestions. I guess I’m jealous that he has hair and I don’t!
Getting my body and mind ready for my next poisoning session on Friday. I am having lunch today with Lani and my old time friend Velma. Then on Wednesday I have an appointment with Dr. Bevers and blood work. Thursday I hope to meet a new friend that contacted me via my business card. She recently moved to Fulshear from Dallas. I love meeting new people and I hope she gets settled in and finds many friends in our area. Then Friday is “get juiced up day”….This will be number 2 of 3. So that means one more left. Getting pretty tired of chemo fog. Oh, well not much one can do about that.
Hope everyone has a fantastic week. Don’t forget to check out my blog a couple of times a week for news stuff and updates. Y’all keep me going. Hugs from Fulshear!
