Thank you chopper. There are days when I am filled with worry. But I know I am not alone. I see all the angels for her and I am so appreciative for them. I think the only two who know all of the truth about my daughter's prognosis is myself and my son Poo. We will know more in September when she goes for her next MRI. If the tumor has shrunk to nothing, she will stay on the chemo for another six months. If it hasn't, it will mean another surgery. And she will be returning to work September 19th. Only five percent of patients with this type of cancer survive. I keep telling myself she is in the five percent. If I didn't I don't think I could handle any of this. Thank you so much. And one for you.

Thanks Chopper...working on it, but somehow I keep getting sucked back here. Shrek is asleep in his chair, I bet he hasn't slept well the entire time I was gone.

The smoke is everywhere, even in town, so I will still be smelling campfires until the fires are gone. I have one heck of a headache from the smoke and my lungs just hurt. But, I'm fine and did my good deed for the week.
Take a nice hot shower and get some rest. And I expect a paper on "What I did this summer." Two pages please. I will be checking spelling and grammar.

I vacuumed one spot and my heart was racing so hard. And I can't keep asking Spike to do my housework. He has his own work that he does all day. So often he falls asleep here right in the computer chair. I am losing ground and I don't like it.
Addie, lots of schools now require their students to do so many hours of volunteer work before graduation. Back in the '60s even my high school strongly encouraged it as the right thing to do. I wonder if there are students who want to help elderly, senior citizens older adults* with housekeeping. It seems like you're fine doing your dusting and bathroom scrubbing, but maybe a high school student could hop over that vacuum hose a lot more nimbly than you? FWIW, even though I'm a couple of years younger than you (I'm 62) you can still clean circles around me! Your cleaning prowess puts me to shame...

*What the heck IS the politically correct term for surviving longer than others? I hate trying to figure out the "politically correct" term for some stuff.

Welcome home PF. Hope you sleep well, and when you get back to work Patron had better be glad to see you!
