Pepe, wish I could go to the beach! Nothing really going on over here. I want to go out, but need to relax. My IBS has flared up again. I am not feeling so good.

I finished my post op chemo Monday 3/21 and am very grateful to my collegues at work for having my back for the last year while I was treated (burnt) operated and chemo'd. So I decided to treat them to dinner tonight at one of the best steak houses in Boston. So six of us are heading out for dinner this evening and I expect to have alot of laughs and because Cancer made me an emotional wreck I would expect I will also shed a few tears of gratitude.

Need lot's of recovery and get well for me. I am sick again or still sick. On top of chemo. WBC is 1.7 and I am on antibiotics AGAIN. Fever, cough, sore throat, congestion. Flu? Cold? Allergies? I'm sick of being sick. Dr mentioned hospital and IV antibiotics if no improvement so for Mondays lab work.....and my re check....I'm sooo wanting improvement.

I hate to be a downer on a feel good post, but shoot I'm just not feeling good. You guys do make me smile though, so thanks for those :)

Love and hugs, Gail

After 2 days of gale force winds (knocked down fences and some trees in the neighborhood) it was pretty calm and almost 70! I went for my first mnt bike ride since the re-section in Feb and it was amazing! Saw a crane and 3 deer in the open space by my house. How much better can it get than that! Riding tomorrow, and then church!

Ahh! some wild boars who comes from the hills near the city ,people use to feed them and now they don't fear people any more , the other day police had to kill a family in the financial district, can you imagine a family of porks in the middle of a street plenty of 40 floor buildings ? HahahaCrazy !

We live right next to the foothills so it takes 10 minutes on a bike to get to the trail head. The deer are in an area protected from hunters so we get to see a few in the winter because they come down low. In this particular area we have prairie dogs (not so spectacular since they multiply quickly), bunnies (same story HA HA) deer, some rattlers, crane, pelicans and lots of gulls or wing (never heard this term before pretty funny,rats(amazing for being landlocked!)It is really nice! I will try to post pics and will let you know when I have them. I would love to visit Spain and have put it on my bucket list!
Hugs to you Friend!

million people city seagulls and doves are not the nice animals we can see in the beach or in the bush , they eat everything , and seagulls became aggressive , they spoil any historical building with their s....t.City council has deployed groups of falcons near historical areas just to try to afraid them but no way. Now is completely forbidden to feed doves in down town they became a plague !..Well just let me know whenever you want to come ,You will be always welcome !
Hugs!

Our winters can be pretty mild here on the Front Range of the Rockies and the Canadaian Geese have over-wintered so many years that they now do not go home! We actually have a law on the books forbidding the harassment of the geese or you can expect jail time! HA HA they poop everywhere and are really a nusiance but have become part of our landscape and city logo!!! When people move here they love to see them flying and in the parks but the novelty quickly wears off! Thanks for the offer same to you if you ever get to Colorado!

pollution color! hahaha and seagulls .... I been working in a big shipyard , some times our site operators had to inspect the huge sheds we had ,enormous ones capable to dock a ferry inside! so they use to be lifted to the roof every 3 months to inspect it and they use to find any think even a monkey skeleton from the zoo which was broad there and eaten by a seagull! believe it!. Really disgusting !.
Hahaha this post is becoming a class of zoology !.

So glad you asked! I am flying to Puerto Rico tomorrow! I am SOO excited. It will be part work, part play. I'm still on chemo (Xeliri plus Avastin) but my onc let me postpone my next treatment for one week. And I'm still feeling a few side effects from the 3 weeks of radiation I had. But, heck -- I'd rather feel a little lousy sitting under a palm tree! Did I mention how excited I am?!?

Love to all

Tara

ps my oncologist said "postponing your treatment by one week will not affect your disease status -- but this holiday will have a huge positive effect on your quality of life". What a good man....

I should add I am carrying enough drugs with me (prescription, that is) to open a small pharmacy in Puerto Rico -- I am prepared for anything!!

Well, just for fun today, I borrowed my brother-in-law's lawnmower and went out in the 100 degree heat and mowed my 2 foot tall grass. Have been waiting for 3 weeks for mine in the repair shop. Picked it up yesterday. They did $250 worth of work on it and guess what, it wouldn't start. So I gave it back to them.
I can finally have another yard sale since I cut the lawn. I was afraid the unmowed grass would scare everyone away. So I'll be up at 5 AM to set everything up and sell,sell,sell(I hope, LOL!)

Drop by if you're in the neighborhood. The only person here that I know of who lives nearby is Angelsbaby.

Will be calling Johnnybegood tomorrow to see how she is feeling after her second chemo. She had just one treatment of the oxy/5FU and the onc changed her to Irinotecan(sp). He was afraid her neuropathy would get much worse on the oxy. So this will be a totally new chemo for her with a whole new set of side effects.

Everyone have a great weekend.

Luv,

Wolfen
