Easter Photos . . .

6 Apr

Easter was a really nice day. I colored eggs for my youngest nephew’s first Easter egg hunt. It was a lot of fun. He is so full of joy . . . it is impossible to be unhappy around that little boy. Here are some pictures . . .

Happy Easter! My nephew Garrett, sheer delight!

Easter Egg And Medical Records Hunt . . .

3 Apr

Yesterday I got a call from my former oncologist’s office . . . finally . . . saying that I could pick up my medical records.  Not a “summary” of my treatment as they had wanted me to settle for – but, instead all of my medical records. By the time they called me to tell me the records were ready, it was too late to actually pick it up yesterday. So, I will go in first thing Monday morning. Hopefully they have complied with my request this time.  Given their stalling for nearly a month now, I am suspicious as to wether they really will provide all of my records. But, at least I have something to pick up on Monday.

Tomorrow is Easter. I may go to a sunrise service at the beach . . . I may sleep in instead. I don’t know. But, we are gathering over at my brother’s house for dinner. This will be my nephew’s first Easter egg hunt. So I am coloring eggs, making a cake and a salad to bring. I am looking forward to tomorrow. It will be fun. I will take pictures and post some up here.

Last Easter I had just started chemotherapy. I can’t believe it has been a year. I had not lost my hair yet – that came about four weeks later. What a year it has been. This year really feels like spring to me. I have a lot more energy now than I did just a few days ago and feel the best I have felt in many months.

Yesterday was a great day for me. I spent most of it at the beach walking. I met a friend down at the beach and we walked for an hour or so, had lunch and walked the rest of the afternoon on the beach. It was a lot of exercise and a lot of fresh air, great conversation and just really an uplifting day.

I feel so much physically stronger than I have in many months now. So, hopefully this will be a trend. 🙂

Thank you for your continued prayers 🙂

Love and peace,

It is after three in the morning and I still can’t sleep. Ugh. I am so tired, but, just can’t seem to get to sleep. I had a good day today – felt good. It seemed like I was not going to have any symptoms from the previous day’s treatment. But, it has now hit, so . . . oh well. I don’t know what I was thinking. I even told a friend I could get together tonight . . . clearly I will not be doing that. I guess I just felt so good today and thought that I could will away the symptoms. I am sure I will feel better soon.

Please keep up the prayers, I need and appreciate your prayers.

Love and peace,
