Over and Out ...

It seems to me that no news is good news - and that's about where I am. I am back at work, feeling fine and more appreciative than ever for all my great friends. Thanks to everyone who has been so attentive during my "brain issues." The calls, cards, well wishes and, yes, the food was wonderful. I loved the anticipation of waiting for the dinner delivery each night. 

However, at this point, I think that the time has come for me to stop the updates - there's just not that much to say. I do hope that you all will continue to keep me in your thoughts and prayers - this isn't over yet, of course - it's just that I'm so much better!

If you're interested, send me an e-mail - I promise that I will answer. We have some exciting times coming up - two weddings and more. During all of this, I'll continue with the oral chemo and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that all continues to go well.

Thanks one more time to all of my wonderful friends and family - I've loved having your support!

This weekend we celebrated Tiffany - it was her wedding shower and my mother, sisters and daughter arrived in town on Friday evening just in time for a nice dinner out and then back for bedtime. We were up early for a visit and bagels and then we all had to rush around - sharing the bathrooms, etc. to get ready for the party.

We had a car full of people and presents, too. The shower was so nice - I enjoyed watching Tiffany and her mom and sister as they greeted friends and then opened the presents. Tiffany got lots of things that she asked for - those wedding registries are the best! One of the nice things about them is that they stay up for a while after the wedding so you can go back and order gifts for birthdays, anniversaries and the holidays. Right now, it's just hard to believe how close the big day is!

All my guests left shortly after the party, leaving the rest of the weekend for me to rest up again for the week. And, the week has started - there's lots to do and we're always busy. I am feeling better all the time - still working on my energy, but basically doing very well. Today, I entered the next round of my doctor appointments into the calendar - those seem to never end. 

Clif is off to Chicago for a meeting with a group he belongs to - he leaves very early on Wednesday and returns on Sunday. Brian is in charge of taking me to and fro - I know he's excited about that! Just think - I'm down to less than two months until I can drive again - but who's counting!

No more news from me - all's well on the Brainiac front and I hope that you and yours are doing well, too. Have a great week -
