Sorry for the delay in posts.....

Home again, home again has been some wonderful medicine.

LOTS of sleep has been on the agenda. And I mean LOTS.

We are now transitioning into our Cancer Treatment Center routine. Yesterday was a "long" day with Dr. visit (things are progressing as expected), chemo treatment, two shots, and finishing with the lumbar shot of methotrexate. It was nice to be told to come home and stay flat for the next 24 hours after that.

At least I can report that the "high anxiety" level of getting that lumbar shot a month ago is now "nill".

It is nice to get back on track with a little normalcy, though I love and miss my nurses and friends at DCH.

Normally, at this time of year, I would be frantically trying to get ready for Cottontail Village in Bham. Paint, stain, glitter, strings would be covering the house. I would be worried about having enough to take, my helper Jamie would be calming me down.

Perhaps God just knew I needed to recharge my soul.



  1. Perhaps you are right about God knowing you needed to recharge. His ways are perfect, so rest assured He has a purpose for this season of your life. :)

    HOWEVER....I will miss our time together at Cottontails TREMENDOUSLY! Something about that show and the down time that we get to just sit and share ideas and talk about life is very therapeutic to me.

    You make sure you do everything the doctors tell you to do and get better so that we can make it to Cottontails next year. ;)
    In the meantime, be on the lookout for some Bunny Tracks in your mailbox soon.

    I love you sweet friend!

  2. ps. please be sure to tell Jean that I will miss seeing her at Cottontails too. :(

  3. Alleluia, Penny is back. Just want you to know that my “home Page” has been the same too long. Thanks for an update. Here if you need me. Love you

  4. Ah, I'm glad you are home! That lying flat thing seems odd, I'm sure. I remember doing that after a spinal tap.

    After my ex-husband came home from being at work all day and didn't offer to feed or water me, LOL, I vowed to have my next illness catered!

    Anyway, maybe spring is peeking through where you live. Got flowers?

    Love, Kip
