Spring is really here

Except for the rainy part (which is often), I really love springtime. Flowers, fresh air, sunshine, newly cut grass....does it get much better?

It's been another uneventful weekend. Just working on getting better. This coming week is a big one. I start my chemo treatments again and Rick has his first scan since we started this new chemo regime. Tuesday will be a long, but very important day. He has his scan in the morning and the results late in the day. My chemo doesn't start until 10:00ish so I hope I'm still awake when we meet with his doctor. Angie is going with us (it's her spring break) so she can be our other set of ears and the official note taker. It's so nice to have someone else at our appointments on days like this. Having one of the kids is always extra special.

I'm now hooked up to Facebook and I've become a little addicted to it. I talk to people I haven't seen or heard from in years. I also have a virtual pet that I feed, and bathe, and walk. It's pretty fun when you have the time to spare.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm starting to get "basketballed out". I usually love March Madness....but I'm having a little March Madness of my own. The sound of the squeaky shoes on the gym floor, the cheerleaders chanting, the refs whistles....Ugh, I need to watch a movie or something with a little humor in it!

Don't forget that March is Colon Cancer Awareness month so "GET YOUR BUTT TO THE DOCTOR". Early detection saves lives.

I need to go now and work on my Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation "webisode". I'll tell you all about it once the project is finished. It's going to be exciting.

One last thing, I know the economy is tight this year but Relay for Life is only 2 months away and we are way below our goal. If you're interested in participating or donating (any amount counts) go to the link and show your support. Thanks in advance for your generosity.

Dreaming Big,

What are you talking about? You are tired of squeaky shoes on the hardwood floors and referee whistles? I agree that I can live without the cheerleaders but the rest of it is awesome! I am taking note of this blog and will be sure to have Dr. Eaton check your head tomorrow at your appointment. It just doesn't sound like someone from a "Sports-a-holic" family!!
