Well, I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. We certainly did. Both Michelle and Craig were home for the weekend, and we had a wonderful time together as a family again. My mom cooked a spectacular meal, which was enjoyed by us as well as my Aunt, Peggy and 3 of her kids. My grandfather was also well enough to attend, which was really amazing and wonderful. Unfortunately, I am the one who didn't make it to thanksgiving dinner.... that day I had a lot of bone pain (side effect of the Neupogen shots) and I just wasn't able to get enough morphine in me to be able to move comfortably AND be lucid. Anyway, that was small detail, I still enjoyed the entire weekend.
We are all very saddened to hear of the death of my cousin Patricia's husband, John Sinclair. One of Patricia's aunt's also died recently (as it happens this is also the mother of one of my friends and fellow book club member, Michelle) My heart goes out to Pat, Michelle and their families as they cope with these deaths.
Things are stable with me. On Thursday I have the MUGA (heart) scan, next week is the CT. The worst of the "chemo" crap side effects are mostly over, and I feel pretty decent.
