Great day in Seattle

Everything went well today in Seattle. My blood count was almost back in the normal range so Dr. Eaton let me have chemo. I got a little sick this time but I feel much better tonight. Rick's CEA count is still going down....Yahoo! He's sitting in the living room as we speak soaking his Piggy's in Epsom salts. (My mom thinks it cures everything) The Erbitux is causing inflammation and pain around his toenails...so I took the opportunity to give Mom's remedy a try. I think he's enjoying it because I'm waiting on him like Cinderella :) Has anyone seen my glass slipper?

The Spartans won their basketball game tonight against Marysville. They play again on Friday night for a spot at the state tournament. How exciting for the boys and their families. Our cousin's daughter Ally and her team from Snohomish have already clinched a spot at State, so when we spend 4 straight days watching basketball at the Tacoma Dome at least I'll know some people. :) Rick could watch basketball all day without knowing a soul. I prefer to recognize a face or two.

When we got back from Seattle today I was able to get a massage. My body has felt pretty rough lately so that was just what I needed. I'm going to drink plenty of water and crawl into bed and work on getting better. I've gotta study for my CT SCAN on Thursday (I want to "pass" the test)

I'm hoping to have a little bit of fun tomorrow. I haven't been out of the house except for doctor's appointments since Friday. I'm looking for new window coverings for our bedroom. This is almost as bad as the snow...just not as cold.

Dreaming Big,
