Right now she is on her way to go back to the hospital for admittance. They will be giving her two bags of antibiotics and some fluids. Hopefully she will be home by tomorrow. She can't take any of her usual medicines at this time. That means the schedule for her chemo will be screwed up. And that screws up the schedule for the party bash she has planned. It is too late to cancel it and reschedule.

I am afraid the chemo is beginning to affect her ability to ward off other side problems and her resistance. But at least our worst worries were not realized. The cancer has not spread.
Oh-dear. Positive thoughts sent your daughter's way...Big Hugs from the girls (although, I don't know if they've mastered hugs...they send them anyway.)

Addie, please add my hugs and prayers for you and your daughter to the list. I have had diverticulitis and it can be very painful. And with all her other issues she does not need this.

Addie, sorry your daughter is having another rough patch. Hope the infection clears up and she's fine real soon.

Also, Whoopie pies are more than a "New England thing". They managed to migrate to PA a while back. Himself's cousins love them. Every time there is a family gathering his cousin makes all varieties of Whoopie pies, not just chocolate. I don't care if they're homemade or what, I'm still not a fan.

Thank you all for your kind words and support. Right now I need a really good cry, but I have one of my sons here and I don't want him to see me. So I will put it off for now. We have been living with this demon for two years now and don't even have the hope that she will be even cured. So when something like this happens, your first thought is that the cancer has spread. We missed the bullet again this time. But how many times are we going to get lucky. But I am hanging in there. Thank you all so much.

Addie,

thinking of you and sending a bunch of hugs over the ocean!

We wanted to go out for an full english breakfast today (it's 10am here) but it's impossible to find that here in Hannover... there is just one pub that serves an all-day-breakfast, but they open at 12....

so no baked beans, no hash browns, no bacon and no sausages.. will do some scrambled eggs I think, and I could have bought bacon but forgot about it..

I did that too when we worked. One year it came out better filing separately, otherwise it was always jointly.

I am annoyed with my small chest freezer. I saw Ina Garten's recipe for baked shrimp cocktail, and I just KNOW I have some frozen shrimp in there somewhere. I hauled a bunch of stuff out of the freezer and put it in a big cooler, and could not find any shrimp. I didn't reach the bottom of the freezer as my (gloved) hands got very cold. Then had to repack everything so the lid would shut. It may be time to get an upright freezer.
