Warp Speed

A student took this photo of me today.
I wanted to show off my beautiful new scarf
from Betty! "In it to end it!"
It's been a busy, short week but I wanted to post this update before I go to bed.  I got a call from the hospital today and my surgery is scheduled for April 25th - in 2 weeks! OMG! I thought it would be in May.
My Mom flew to South Carolina today to visit my youngest sister, Heather, for a month.
This evening we went out to dinner with my sister, Carol to celebrate her birthday and my daughter's, which is on Friday. I can't believe Katie will be 16!
I just finished going through all of our receipts from last year for taxes. I marveled at how I could look at a list of items and recognize the events for which we made those purchases.  The holiday meals, the items for Katie's trip to Chicago her freshman year, the flats of flowers, 3 tons of rocks from a gravel pit,  lunch with just me and Tommy, the Homecoming dress in October. Then things got really quite in November except for some scarves and hats ordered from catalogs.
The past 5 months went by at warp speed. I've lived by the calendar filled with appointments. Every three weeks-chemo. Ten days later, a follow-up visit. And of course, in between, I had a few glitches and needed more appointments.

Tomorrow is my 8th and final chemotherapy treatment. I'm really happy that I'm almost finished! But I will miss the nurses and all of the tlc they've provided. I will be glad to get through this part of my treatment and move on to the lumpectomy, radiation and finally, healing, both inside and out.


  1. Wow Sis, your paragraph about the receipts made me tear up at the desk. How we can go about our lives and then something happens. Very poignantly written...hugs and love!


    1. It make me tear up too. I enjoyed looking back through the monthly receipts and remembering all of the things we were fortunate to do as a family. Richard and I are lucky to be working. I also found receipts from taking mom to dinner, my stint as Carol's "shoe fairy", fixing my addiction at Jo Ann's fabric (with Mom or Katie), getting our new furniture, buying paint for these walls, and having the band kids/parents over for a bonfire after a fall game, etc. It really was a different way to reflect on my life.
      Hugs and love back to you and Mom!
