With Thanksgiving just around the corner and Christmas and my birthday shortly there after I am just enjoying life to the fullest. With stage 4 you get a totally different look at life and I am gonna live it to the fullest. Looking forward to putting up the Christmas tree next Friday and finishing up the lights outside....

Monday is my middle child's (oldest daughter) birthday- she is turning 15. Since I'll be gone most of the day going to L.A.that day to see Dr. Lenz and my husband will be working a long day, we are celebrating her birthday on the weekend.
It's supposed to rain here this weekend, so I guess no outdoor activities, but going to the mall and getting a manipure/pedicure is what she wants to do on Saturday, anyhow.

I'm looking forward to my kids' week-long Thanksgiving break next week, so I don't have to get up so early to get them going and to school. A little relax time!
We'll be having Thanksgiving at my mother in law's house- my family of five, one of sisters in law and family (also of 5), and my mom and stepdad will all be there, all bringing something to share (gotta talk to MOL today to decide what we should all bring).

We have rain coming into Vegas too this weekend and it's going to be a cold rain not a warm rain. bbbbbrrrrrrrrr. Have a great weekend for your daugther's birthday. I hope your consult with Dr. Lenz goes well. Monday is chemo for me so just in case I don't get a chance to wish you well, know that I will be thinking of you on Monday.

Just going shopping for our Thanksgiving dinner. We are just having the kids and grandkids which ends up being about 25 people. Yup another 23 pounder, plus Kielbasa yummy. Today we are going to drop off about 125 pounds of food to the food depot at church. Still have to buy one more turkey, but we bought the rest of the food last night. Our area has been hit hard with unemployment so our food depot is pretty busy with homeless and unemployed. Also have another birthday party to go to for our grandson on Sunday. Enjoy your weekend.

Alone? Like the movie "Home Alone"? I can just see you now ... are you going to make a mess or be a good boy and keep things clean? 10 days is a long time. I hope you're feeling good enough to make a mess.

I'm doing my Chemo rush weekend. Not as much fun as college rush but, almost as funny. I have to catch up on all the things that didn't get done. Best fun is I set up a coffee/tea bar in my Master bathroom counter. I get one side with one sink and put a small 4 cup coffee maker and a cup and spoon with all my different flavored teas and coffee ready to go for Chemo hot drinks. Starbucks would be proud of my scaled down version. That way I don't have to go downstairs to the kitchen everytime I need something to drink. I already have a small refrigerator in the sitting area of the bedroom so by the time I'm done with Chemo, I may have a to bring up my extra microwave and just make the Master bedroom it's own apartment.

Have fun for 10 days on your own, hang out here online. Or, you can check my Facebook. I've posted all kinds of pictures that I've taken of the California coast. Check out my sea otter pictures, took me over an hour of stalking that poor otter but I got a killer picture of it close up and staring at me while he ate.

the worst: is not the first time she goes there and we use to speak each other twice every day ,last time it cost me nearly 2000€ in celullar invoice!
Beside that we have a maid that comes every day but not cook , so have to go my mother,s house for lunch and supper and it stress me a lot, l love her, she is still in excellent shape, and it makes her difficult to manage, lately she is worried about her arm broken few months ago so she is in very bad humor as she can't drive , no any other problem bigger than her problems, not even mine! her problems ar the big ones! does it sounds to any body?, So l don't know how to deal with my solitude !.In other order of things , would you be able to send a pic of your bathroom with all the paraphernalia?.LOL.
Best to you dearest!

This sounds awesome; very smart + handy. Our bedroom isn't really big enough for the fridge, etc. but I have heard there is a trend to having master suites with a little "kitchenette".

Glad to hear that I'm not the only one with a kitchen in my master suite! I used to have a small refrigerator until I decided to defrost the freezer it with a screwdriver and hammer.....Bad idea!
Freon came shooting out. Killed the refrigerator!
I also have several, hot pots that I use to cook hard boiled eggs.
Sounds lazy, but not when you can barely get out of bed!
Hope the next treatment is kinder toward you!

Take Care, Barb

My son and future daughter-in-law are in town until Monday. We'll play!

Tonight, my husband is the musical entertainment at a local general store/restaurant, so we'll meet up with friends there. He plays folk and American traditional music. Lots of fun!

Hugs all around!

It is funny that you ask this because the question each week forces me to do something each week besides thinking about cancer, but when I read your post I was heading into my tenth hour at work. So I laughed at myself and thought should I even report that I will be at work AGAIN this weekend or should I make up something exciting like going to Massachusetts to have a traditional Thanksgiving week? I am sorry to report that I can not excercise the use of a vivid imagination, as I will be going to work, but I am happy to report that there is a silver lining to me working a lot for the past few months. I got authorization to take 2 weeks off from work to spend with my mother during Christmas. I will suffer through work this month and the next to happily spend time with her. I may try to work in the garden if time permits.

I guess I should locate my alarm clock! The earlier I go into work the earlier, the earlier I can get out!

Glad you get this two weeks off to enjoy family in Christmas time!

They reversed my iliostomy. So far everything seems to have gone well from the surgery and that is what I was told. But now my whole GI tract has forgot what to do with food and that makes things a little uncomfortable. If I eat, I can expect to be rushing for the bathroom for hours. The surgery site is very bearable, although I seem to be sneezing a lot now and that does hurt. It's the diarrhea and burning to the behind that goes with it that is soo frustrating and painful.

How are you doing with the chemo and radiation? What week are you in?

Welcome home. I'm so glad to see you back to posting and recuperating from your reversal. Use that info cause I know people who swear by it. Our intestines just don't like to be messed with and they rebel after surgery. You're going to have to be patient and retrain your system again. You'll do fine, I'm sure. Take it easy. Oh, and you are welcome for the articles. HUGS

Let's see...I was trying to think up something exotic to say that I was going to do...just to cheer you up.But in reality, I hurt my back somehow 3 weeks ago and it won't heal. So, I am going to sit in my oversized chair all weekend watching TV with a heating pad and gobble down muscle relaxers, Advil, pain pills whatever it takes to eliminate this misery.Going to Onc. Monday. Maybe she will have some better idea?

Meanwhile,Good news!! I have my reservations for the cruise. Going for a 5 day Yucatan. Already been there but will be fun anyway and got great price. Maybe my back will be well by August?

Cheer up Pepe. Not good to be so down and out. Your wife will come home soon and Y'all can celebrate her homecoming.

Pepe,

They cut the damn steroids dose for me in half again today. For the first time in well over a week I feel like a normal guy. The anti brain seizure drug does not seem to faze me.

Now tomorrow I am going to fire up my chainsaw. I have 2 big old post oaks that need to be thinned from the woods that are coming down. If you have a 12 inch thick tree, you don’t want any tree for a 12 feet radius around it. It’s called making a healthy forest

Then the new log splitter will get its work out. It’s going to be a fun healthy day. I need to work this steroid crap the hell out of me. The firewood from this will warm us for about 3 weeks next winter.

Hey, Pepe.

Tonight we went downtown for the Christmas tree lighting. Fun times. Saw lots of people we know and took our daughter and grandchildren. Love it!

Tomorrow night our oldest grandson is spending the night with us and going to the Christmas parade. It's too late by the time it's over for the 2 younger ones. So Owen will get special attention and go to church with us on Sunday. There's a pancake breakfast that morning, so he'll love that!

*hugs*
Gail
