We are going Kayaking if the weather holds, and taking the Dogs. Else we will Hike in the Mountains. Either way, the trees are turning colors and it is very pretty!

Best Always, mike

My recovery from my lumpectomy has been full of problems, so my surgeon is going back in tomorrow morning. I'll spend the weekend at home recovering (it is outpatient surgery). We're hoping that a little reworking will alleviate the severe pain I've been suffering for the past week.

My original plans were to curl in a tournament. I had to drop off of my team (fortunately, they were able to find someone else.)

However, in the scheme of things, the surgery is minor. It's a major nuisance, but it's a sort of non-cancer/cancer surgery, as it is related to a diagnostic surgery that found everything benign, but left me with the post-op blues.

I hope I can get back on the ice next week, and I hope everyone else has a great weekend. (Boy, would I love to be out kayaking!)

you are always ahead of your time Pepe!
Love it!

Plan to hang low, chill with the fam and take in a movie.

I'm back to work pretty much full time and having a blast in my new role and trying hard to keep the stress low.

I think I'll clean the garage and read a new book i purchased this week...

its called: "I'd rather do Chemo, than clean out the garage" by Fran Di Giancomo

can't wait to dive in.

The first Saturday of November for about the last 15 years or so has been designated sister shopping day! My mom and her six sisters and me (my moms youngest sister is six months younger than me) began this tradition in prepping for our annual Christmas party which averaged up to 80 folks! We would hit the dollar stores and buy two $1 toys for each little one for Santa to give out during our party. We would also do some additional shopping and garage sales along the way and always splurge for a great meal! I had one aunt who was very frugal and she would always "splurge" and order a steak! She passed away three years ago after battling B cell non Hodgkins lymphoma, we always remember her steak meal when we order ours! We had one rule, no kids allowed! It was our day! You had to be 18 or graduated from high school! My wonderful aunts are now entering their mid and late sixties with my mom the oldest at 72. I have so many wonderful memories of these years! We laugh till we pee our pants almost and bring tears to our eyes! Last year I was still taking chemo, I tagged along but it was rough, I plan on making up for that come Saturday! Bring on the depends and let the laughter flow!

Happy weekend to everyone!

Hey Pepe, Rick is looking forward to having his kids come up for a visit. I'm hoping that his sister and nephew will come too. Rick likes having visitors, I just wish more of his old friends would stop by since it always perks him up.

Wishing everyone a nice weekend

Do wish the weather a little better and warmer.

Wishing all of you a wonderfull weekend,

I am going to go try on wigs... I have lost almost 2/3rds of my hair. I think a wig will help me feel a little better about myself and how I look.

My daughter took my electric razor to my hair today and shaved it all off in my hospital room. This new treatment with Zaltrap made my hair fall out. It does do something to make me feel better. Have fun looking for your new wig. Jeff

High School football game tonight, they are 8-0 so far and last year went to state championship and won in Atlanta. So that means 2 more regular season games and maybe 5 playoff games. The rest of the weekend rest for chemo #9 Monday morning. It seems it will never end!

Just got a call from my doc about the CT Scan I had today. It seems the pain in my side is the appendix and he wants me to go into the hospital to get it removed. I'll be taking my laptop so I can keep all y'all informed.

Sorry to hear that you need to head for hospital again but hopeful that this surgery will get you back on the road to recovery.

Alice shared her "sleeping with her eye candy Anesthesiologist again", so you have got to come back with some good stories of your own.

Hugs and feel better soonest,

Marie who loves kitties

Dear Doc,

Darn those sharp things that we keep getting stuck with. Slicing and dicing is not my favorite way to spend time. I hope that your appendectomy and recovery are simple and straightforward, no excitement (tho maybe you'll get to enjoy some eye candy as well!)

Take care of yourself,

Alice

PS - it's a damned shame that some meds cause amnesia. I know that I "missed" at least one night of fun with my husband due to Ambien. I wonder what I missed due to Versed while sleeping with my cute anesthesiologist today!

Next time you need/want to remove wall paper try spraying it with deluted liquid fabric softner. I hear it does a really good job of loosening it and best of all it is non-toxic.
