Memories I Share- Keepsakes I Treasure- Gifts I Give

Been a rough week…

Scan on Monday… last week… k41023136

Results were given on Wednesday…

The waiting is sometimes unbearable!…

Doctor came in and said, “Scan looked good!”…

The cancer cells are still there but, like “sleeping!”…



no activity seen…

and lungs… liver… kidneys… etc. look fine…


This is when IT blows your mind…

The chemo is keeping cancer “at bay”… my words…

and they will continue to give same medicines but, with an additional one…

MORE side effects… k37365176

We now have neuropathy of hands/feetHurts to touch anything very cold…

Tastes is awful!…

a powdery film in mouth… or NO taste…

I try spicier foods

for flavor… but, this week nothing was working

Nausea… was every day… some throwing up

Today we are feeling a little betterbeen 6 days

My cooking tasted good… at end of day yesterday…

Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, broccoli and salad with Italian Dressing

but, today was even better…

Breakfast of egg, toast, hash brown (ketchup), and thin sliced fried ham

and chocolate milk/coffee…

I was trying!!!…

all gone… YEAH!!!…

and lunch… I made chicken breasts boiled with onions, celery, seasonings(salt/pepper)…

and then added wide noodles (almost dumpling like)… to broth… green baby lima beans… cranberry sauce and dressing/stuffing…

Ate all but, dressing… (He doesn’t like it)… (ANYTIME!)…

The side effects from the new meds are skin rash and bruisingFUN – It’s NOT!

So… maybe by tomorrow on our 48th Wedding Anniversaryk41147596



we will be able to use the gift card from the oldest Granddaughter to Cattleman’s…


A restaurant she works at while going to college…

We might even try a movie… k8842420

Not any big plans… but, just being together is great!…

There are no jewels… gifts… named for the 48th Wedding Anniversary…

Only a modern gift which mentioned “Optical Gifts”… k38991071

Glasses… telescopes… cameras… k35131010

I have already received a pretty cross necklace of Opals for Birthday and Anniversary


which I love…

and will wear all of the time

Maybe I will find Bobby some new sunglasses for a vacation we are planning with the kids/friends at end of June…


That would work!
