Happy Birthday Mom and Dad


We celebrated Mom and Dad's birthday a day early, on St. Patrick's Day, since Darryl and I had flights home on the actual birthday! The photo shows two of my nieces, Laurel and Heather, and my dad and mom.....

Thanks to everyone who contributed to my dad's 70th birthday "book"... it turned out really great and I am pretty sure it will be treasured.

Darryl and I had a great (short) trip to Phoenix to be there for the birthdays.... Darryl flew through Calgary so I had assistance for the flights, and that was great, plus, he then had the pleasure of my company !!!

Medical updates: I am in the middle of Cycle 3 of Xeloda....... feeling about the same, still some cough and shortness of breath and I need a lot of sleep..........

Upcoming: CT scan April 5, results April 10, keep your fingers crossed because all in all this is a tolerable chemo regime, probably the most "easy" chemo I have been on....

HI Joanne,
Great picture! I can't believe how old the girls are getting! Glad you had a good trip and were able to go down to celebrate. Colleen's birthday is the 10th of April so maybe that will bring good vibes to your results.
We are finally starting to thaw here in G.P. and everyone is glad for the warmer weather. We did however replace our sump pump as it will be working overtime. I thought of you in your first Mission Heights house with all the sump pump changes. Hope you are warm and have sunshine in Regina.
Happy Birthday Aunt Eileen and Uncle Jim.

Hi Joanne,
Have been watching for your update. Again, thanks for keeping us informed. I'm sure your Dad was thrilled with the special birthday project and it was so nice that all of the "Condon kids" could be there to celebrate both birthdays. Get your rest - we're all praying for encouraging results on this next scan. Hi to all!
Love, Nick and Lorraine

You are in my thoughts Joanne. Always wishing you the best. It was a real pleasure for both Genevieve and I to be asked to contribute to your Dad's birthday.
Thank you.
