Just got off the phone with the cardiologist's office. I am well enough that the procedure is a go! And the chance that it might not happen prompted me to talk to TB and our pastor about my fears surrounding it all and now I feel a real peace about it. The chance that anything will go wrong, or that they will find something wrong is slim, but it is good to have it looked at with my personal health history and my family heart history.

Thanks everyone for your support! I go in Friday am and will be home sometime in the late afternoon or early evening.

And Joie is doing much better too. He has figured out how to eat all the wet food "meatball" while missing the microscopic piece of pill inside it so I KNOW he is his old mischievous self. Now to find another receptacle for the meds! He isn't allowed many treats as he has pacreatitis and we are still waiting for whatever he ate to pass so I am limited in options. But I am not worried.

Kind of a lazy day around here today. This morning I made a large recipe of cookies as our dessert tray was nearly empty. Just one little piece of apple crisp left. Can't have a dessert "crisis" in this house.

After lunch I climbed up in the attic and put the last of the boxed/put up Christmas decorations away. However, like every other year, I just glanced over and noticed I'd forgotten to put our big outdoor Moravian star away. Ugh! Oh, another day. I always forget one thing.

I'm reaching knitting withdrawal as I started a baby blanket for Glenn's son and his wife on Friday and finished it Monday afternoon. I've already made about 52 preemie hats and can make more because I still have plenty of yarn scraps, but I want to sink my knitting needles into something a little more substantial and challenging.

Right now I'm getting together my game plan for tomorrow morning because we have to get Bella to the vet early so she can be spayed. To our knowledge she's never ridden in a car and really doesn't like vehicles of any kind, so that should be an interesting task. However, I will have her in a secure pet carrier, which will reduce the danger of her getting hurt or doing any damage to the car.

I hate to have her away from home for just the overnight, but it's what is required. She's really become part of our lives and a real bright spot for both of us.

I had wanted to put out our Mardi Gras decoration on the front porch today but it's too cold to be outside for any length of time, plus it's cloudy and breezy. Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny and nice. It'll be a better day to be outdoors.

I think I'll just kick back and listen to my audio book for a while.

Got season 2 of Downton Abbey under my belt.
It's starting to get hilarious it is so easy to figure the next move.
And I darn near have everybody's names figured out, though Isabel still throws me now and then ;^)

And The Angels Are Watching

I just talked to my daughter. She went to see her oncologist today. There is still some swelling in her brain. But he said that is normal. It takes a long time for that to go away completely.

The chemo is working. The cancer is shrinking. He said that there may be just a little bit left at the end of the year and they will decide whether to continue the chemo then or go back in and try to remove the last of it surgically.

The best day since last August. Thank you all for the angels. I do notice them and send each of you a silent thank you. I do know in my heart that they are definitely watching over her. One can never have to many angels. And one for all of you.

Glad things are getting better, Addie. I will keep praying and here is an angel for each of you!
