Hi Readers! How are you? How was your Thanksgiving? We had a nice time down on the Florida Panhandle visiting with my parents, brother and his family. The Boy had a blast with his cousin Emma and Papa. Those three had some fun adventures on their bikes. The Puppy had a blast too. Nice long walks, new smells to smell, playing with his two puppy cousins and of course stealing a bite of the sweet potato casserole off the counter on Thanksgiving. Puppy likes toasted marshmallows!

My Man and I were able to check out some nice returns for lunch and dinner. This year we stayed further down 30A near Rosemary Beach. My brother and his father recently moved into a home they built down there. There were a bunch of new restaurants for us to check out and of course, we couldn’t go to them all! We always run out of time. Boo!



Me like!


The sun is out but still kinda chilly.


After day 1 the sun came out but it was still kind of chilly. At least it was for me. I seemed to be cold the whole trip. I read that it will be in the 70’s there this week. Pickles.

It’s that time again…

I will be checking into the hospital today at 11am for my 4th round of chemo. I will have chemo every 12 hours. The 8 day out-patient chemo I was doing has proven to be too much for me. I should hopefully get to come home on Saturday, just in time for the SEC Championship. That is was I keep telling myself. My Man will not be able to stay with me at night but should be able to visit me for a few hours each day by working from the hospital. The Boy and I have already planned some FaceTime dates and hopefully he will be able to come visit me one night after school in the “family guest” area. Please keep your thoughts and prayers with My Boys.

I am trying to have a positive out look on this trip to the hospital. That chemo is a good thing (like my friend Geri tells me), it is the thing that is going to kick these tumors ass. That I have been through this before and survived it…and will do it again. I am able to block out the negative thoughts most of the time but as I get closer to chemo the thoughts creep back in and I know by Day 3, I will be a blubbering mess. Ugh! While you are praying for My Boys, through a few in for me.

Be good this week Readers!

  1. I know it will be hard, with the stricter visiting rules at this place, but hopefully you will feel some better when you get out because you will be able to rest between infusions. So glad you had a good visit down in FLA…Prayers go up daily for you and your Boys thinking of you all today, and every day.

  2. The best laid plans of mice and men go astray. Shit ! I know that you will get more rest and your blood will be better.
    I pray every night for you and your boys. I agree with Geri it will kill those nuggets.
    Hang tight, think positive, be strong. You will defeat them so many prayers come your way. Love you lots,lots,lots Momee

  3. My mom always called her chemo her “anti-cancer drugs”. That really seemed to help her. Praying for you and the boys. And your GSD is GORGEOUS!
