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!

Hello All,

I just got my bone scan results – everything is normal. Phew!

Thank you all for your continued prayers, please keep the prayers coming, I know it works!

Much love,

Lisa

And . . . here is a picture of me naked . . . okay, not really, but kind of 🙂

Look at them bones! 🙂

Scans today

12 Mar

Hi All,

Today was pretty exhausting. It began early in the morning and ended in the late afternoon. A day of tests – ultrasound, bone scan. It doesn’t sound like much, but it took most of the day. The bone scan required an injection three hours in advance (some radioactive isotope that binds to your bones, nice, I must surely be glowing in the dark by now) 🙂

The bone scan was so creepy. I was fine and then all of a sudden, just like the technician said would happen, the machine was about an inch or less above my nose. I just about freaked out. And then I just kept my eyes closed and waited for the machine to make it’s way down my body. I was glad that at least it started with the worst part first – scanning my head – that was just way too close. I have never felt that confined before. Yuck. But, it’s over and here is a picture of me – AFTER – quite happy to be done!

Please say lots of prayers on my results. Hopefully all goes well.

Love and peace,

Lisa

Glad to be getting out of this room :) The technician was really nice, she even let me take a picture of my bones on the computer screen, she looked around and said, "Go ahead, we're probably breaking the law", she was nice.

I felt the wind through my hair

12 Mar

Yesterday I was walking my dog Molly and for the very first time since all of this began, I felt the wind blowing through my hair – as in, I have enough hair for the wind to move. It was absolutely wonderful, such a feeling. I can’t explain it – except that it was delicious. I guess, with this cooler weather (cool for here, anyway), I have been wearing hats when I take my puppy out for a walk. But, yesterday I skipped the hat and felt for the first time in a long time – the wind blowing my hair in one direction and then the next. It felt so good.

Here is a picture I took on my way home from a day of medical garbage. I took PCH back home, instead of the freeway, so that I could walk and see birds. I found a beautiful egret.

A Night Out

28 Feb

Last night I got to go out with a very dear friend of mine and hear some great music (thank you T.). It was a great evening. We went to hear the Pacific Symphony at the Orange County Performing Arts Center. Their new building (The Segerstrom Concert Hall) is amazing, incredible acoustics. The music and company were wonderful. Here are a couple of pictures.

A day at the beach, one year later . . .
