We decided to leave all our woes behind and jump on a cruise....We left on a Friday morning to LAX and by Friday afternoon we were on the Carnival Paradise! For our first cruise experience we took this little 4 day 3 night cruise down to Encinada Mexico and we had a really great time.
For Chirstmas I gave Gregory tickets to see Jeff Foxworthy, Larry the Cable Guy and Bill Engvall in SLC! Sooo on 3/25 we had a wonderful date night starting at Cheesecake with Chris as our server and than off to Energy Solutions for the show! We have been Blue Comedy Collar Tour fans for many years. Living in Kentucky only confirmed that the people that they talk about in their acts are in fact real people. We laughed so hard we were hourse! It was a good time!
Finished my first month on the Tomoxifen...59 months to go!! WootWoot!!!
About 2 weeks into taking the pills I started to have night sweats...never had them before so it was not a fun thing. The oncologist NP suggested I start taking Vitmain E for the night sweats..400 IU twice a day..and I think it is working!!! So all of my "older" friends with the night sweat dilemma...try the Vit E!!
This week marked the birthdays of my 2 youngest babies..Becah and Chris!! Becah is 29 now and Chris will be 26 tomorrow!! Where does time go...I am pretty sure I am still 29 myself..anyway! Happy Birthday to you 2! I am so proud to be your mom! I am so blessed with great kids!! And thanks for giving us the greatest grand babies ever!!!
No intervention today from the plastic surgean!! The "girls" are finally headed in the right direction! He signed my release back to work...so I am scheduled to return to LDS on 2/11! We have been hit hard with nasty colds so I hope I will be able to keep that date!
Our Lauren has follow up abdominal scans this Wednesday so please keep her in your prayers! I don't know what I will do if she has to have repeat surgery and or treatments! Really how much can a family take? But everytime I say that we get tested even further! I really don't care about myself...but not our Lauren or anyone else in our family PLEASE!
Every Monday we trudge to the plastic surgeon for follow up and every Monday we leave having to make another appointment for the next Monday! Still having some healing issues and without giving "TMI Mom" as my kids tell me...I won't go into too much details. The plastic surgeon is still not releasing me to return to work. I am scheduled to return to work at LDS on the 11th. I will know more at my appointment on the 7th whether or not I will be able to keep that date. I am feeling better but still not driving on my own yet. I am a very blessed women to have a very patient and caring husband too! I haven't felt any side effects from the Tamoxifen as of yet...although it is very early.... Becah is making all the grand girls crotchet hats for V-Day so I decided to give one a try...very addicting so I might have found a new hobby! Thanks to you all for your prayers and concerns!
