    Dear Pepe
    Sounds like you have a full agenda for this weekend and lots of good food!

    This weekend, I absolutely MUST get out and weed the flower beds...the poor plants and flowers are being over-run. Will have to time it for either early morning or late afternoons as the temps here are heating up. Good for those who like to go swimming but not so good for those with outside chores.

    I am also working on two crochet projects. One for a neighbor who is always bringing me her left over yarn...this time she will be getting it back in the form of an afghan...lol. The other project is a shawl for a friend's birthday next month.

    So I will be busy inside or outside.

    Wishing you good eats and good time with your family and friends,

    Marie who loves kitties

    Dinner with your oncologist?
    Wow - I don't think my oncologist would have dinner with me. But I did share a quick pasta dinner with my colon cancer nurse navigator when we were picking up packets for our Get Your Rear in Gear teams.

    My van has been in the repair shop since early yesterday morning. It was supposed to be done tonight, then they said 9AM tomorrow, and now they say about 10:30AM tomorrow. I'm not counting on anything until they call me. I am supposed to go back to my hometown for a school reunion and to visit family. Not sure if it is going to work out or not. Fingers crossed...

    my plans
    Hummm. What should I do this weekend? How about check in the hospital at noon. Have a wedge resection on my right lung at 2:20pm. Wake up around 4pm and find out if the nodule is a met from the colorectal cancer (that I didn't even know about until April 21), or if it's a met from the testicular cancer (that I found out about six months ago) or if it is another primary cancer (eg. lung cancer), or if it's nothing. Then I just might stay the night at the hospital, maybe two, probably not getting any sleep. And on Sunday, well, I am pondering the possibility of going to the beach, fishing, playing golf, and maybe sky diving too. :-) Well, maybe I'll just rest on Sunday and try to keep a positive outlook instead.

    Jubillee weekend
    Here in the UK it is a four day weekend to celebrate60 years reign by the Queen. There is a huge flotilla of boats due to go down teh Thames and will be off to mother in law's near London for the traditional street party to mark the occasion (not really a royalist but any excuse for a party seems good).

    Finish the weekend with a cocktail of chemo due to be infused Tuesday- our lives are really all a mad mix of life and cancer. Getting the balance right is the challenge!

    I'm having the surgery today
    I'm having the surgery today (Friday) at 2:20pm. They know the nodule has grown from 12 mm to 18 mm. And given it's location a biopsy would be difficult, most likly would have to be a brochial eltro-magnetic guided biopsy. And the surgeon said the possibility of a false negative was not insignificant, and given the history of two cancers the surgeon felt the resection was our best option.

    They think they have found it!
    Pepe! Have a good time with your family. I am proud to say that the doctor's think they have found a reason for
    My persistant coughing.

    They think the acid from acid reflux got into my lungs and vocal chords causing coughing ang severe bronchitis, which was not restrained by cough medicines. They haveme on reflux meds and we will see what happens.

    All this time and money wasted and all I had to do was go get a box of antacids from the pharmacy?

    This weekend I may celebrate. I am trying to be positive about this issue. Now I can't eat big meals. So I shoud be losing more weight. I have had to give away 5 pairs of jeans already and my a** is usually the last to go.

    Husband
    He deserves more...not everyone would let you wrap your arms around their legs and cry while you are on your 10th trip to the bathroom to poo! Just like Martina McBride sings, he's loving me through it. Still haven't figured out how she knew to write a song about my Gary! Enjoy your family and weekend!

    Good morning Pepe!
    What movie are you going to see?
    I have a jamming weekend. Today our twins go from being Daisys to brownies, which is part of the ladder for Girl Scouts. We are having a party here afterwards for the parents and little girl scouts so I'm busy getting things together for that special event. (I REALLY should get off the computer!!!0
    Our friends from Barcelona are moving from California to New Jersey, so we are having a dinner for them on Sunday. Think we'll do posole, which is a Mexican yummy soup, almost like a very wet salad it you do it right. She taught me how to make paella, so this is my reciprocal home dish.
    I will really miss them. When I was undergoing tx, they would take the girls for the night, and they spent almost every holiday with us for the last three years. Really feel like family members.
    will check back in later to see what everyone else is doing.
    Prayers and strength to all those in tx.
    NOW I REALLY HAVE TO GET OFF THE COMPUTER!
    Love,
    Tommycat
