Saturday is "my special day"...dare I admit it? I will be 65! and I don't look a day over 40 thanks to the modern miricles available to us ladies...lol...I wish!

Nothing special planned...the neighbor ladies took me to lunch today, and the family sorta celebrated it along with Easter on Sunday.

Just grateful to be able to celebrate another 'special day'.

Wishing you good weather so you can get started on that tan!

Hugs,

Marie who loves kitties

That is great I love it when everyone celebrates a birthday. Everyday is special but a milestone of being 65 is extra special. You'd birthday is the same as David Letterman who is on. Tv right now talking about his 65th birthday. Pray you have many more. Jeff

My wife and I might go to the casino in Indianapolis for a few hours tomorrow. Its the one place where I don't feel pain or think about this awful cancer. The rest of the weekend will take it easy. Pray everyone has a good weekend. Jeff

Friday night Bill and I are going downtown to eat and look at the old cars that will be driven in for the first "cruise in" of the season. Good chance to see lots of people and visit some of the shops downtown.

Saturday I'm getting my hair cut. The world can relax. I will stop looking so shaggy! That afternoon I'm meeting my co-chair for survivorship for our Relay. We're going to make some centerpieces for tables for survivor receptions coming up this week and next.

Sunday will be church. That night I'm taking the youth to a church camp in our county for a special service and dinner and outdoor games.

Then I'm coming home to watch "Desperate Housewives."

*hugs*

Nothing special, but then again any weekend without chemo misery is pretty damn special to me now.

Here in the U.S. it is tax filing weekend so my husband while he is home this weekend is going to work on the tax return and I'm going to try and do some things on my own at home and stay out of his way :-)

I'm going to do some laundry. I'm going to start back a second time sorting the too-many Christmas decorations that have been sitting in a room waiting to be sorted since January. I am going to cook a meal for both of us at least once this weekend, and it will involve chicken and veggies is my plan. I am going to brew some strawberry tea and make a pitcher of it for iced tea to drink all weekend.

See, nothing really extraordinary, but stuff I haven't even been able to do for myself these last few months in treatment Each day I grow stronger and stronger post-chemo and am able to do some things from my old life like these for myself.

It's spring and warm weather. I think it will rain on Sunday is what the forecasters say. If so, I'll go outside and catch a raindrop on my tongue! And I'm serious about that, too. I love rain because we get so little of it here in Texas. I like to smell it in the air before it starts; I like to hear the drops hitting the window pane and see them splashing on the sidewalk. And I'll drift off to sleep in a nap if it pours for a while, with my dogs snuggled up next to me, of course (doesn't everyone enjoy a daytime nap when it is raining?).

I'll wear shorts and flip flops in the house. I'll watch out the window for the chickadees that have taken up residence in a birdhouse in the backyard (the babies have hatched so there is an uptick in parental feeding activity).

There you go, Pepe, all the special non-special stuff I am planning to do while trying to not take life for granted each day like I used to before cancer.

Doc's gave me a week off chemo so we could take the family on vacation... so we spent the last 7 days in Florida. Great family vacation and visited with mother & father in law.

Cancer makes us all appreciate family times more than ever.

i loved sitting on the beach, under a big umbrella as i cannot get any sun due to Erbitux and other chemo meds with skin rash and many other issues... but i loved sitting there watching my kids play and hanging with my wife.

great times, great weather and great family times.

cheers and hugs to everyone.

Joe

as well ? Honestly last summer I didn't pay too much attention to the sun while I was in folfiri , use to swim ,take sun ( just with a hat) . I use to be 3 months living in the beach out of Barcelona,so I have time to get used to the Sun ,first day lots of protection, umbrella and just 10 minutes but by the end of the summer I don't take any care honestly ,lol.The result is just a few dark spots in the body but nothing else, I asked to oncologist and he told me the only danger are skin issues so if I have tried and nothing happened it's fine, despite they always alarm you on the beginning .Notice I never been in erbitux which I know is specially hard for the skin so don't try my method Joe!! LOL.
Hugs and have an excellent weekend.

Hi Pepe, I will be celebrating a clear CT scan!!! woohoo. It has been almost a year since my 2nd liver resection.
I am feeling very humble, given all the sad news here. Like, Mags, I don't know why, but I will make each day count.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
Hugs and prayers to all,
Judy

You got it my friend. I will have a drink for all of us. A toast to the courage it takes to travel this road. A toast to the friendships formed, and one for the friends no longer here.
That is about all i can handle without falling down ; )
Hugs
Judy

I have been sick with asthma since February; going back and forth to thee doctor and emergency room. Your jpurney's has given me strength on mine. I am going to try to relax. I am on my second round of sreroids. The first round I was given 50 mg for 5 days and my broncbial asthma didn't get better, I have had xrays and they were negative; so don 't be surprised if you don't see me for awhile.

Hey Ketz, I'm sorry to hear that you're not feeling well, I hope that the good doctor can get your asthma under control soon. Rest up now, and finish your book. :-)

All my best,
Cynthia

I am working to make up for Wednesday when I gave myself a heart attack! Trying to build my hours back up so I can take a vacation thus fall! But my sweet husband is going to work with me so we can be together! I think he is a keeper! Spending your Saturday inside a correctional facility while your wife works on paperwork is not everyone's idea of fun!

I hope everyone has wonderful weekend!
