And on to the weekend!!!

Dear Reader, all I can say is YAY!!!  It's the weekend.  Friday is pretty much done, and thus begins my favorite time of the week.

So, I want to just give you a quick update on Dianne.  She is doing quite well!!  Oh, there are a few minor little things going on, but in the big picture, it has been a great week!!!  Dianne is tired quite a bit, which really comes as no surprise at all.  A new development has been heartburn.  It was awesome when she started to eat more, only to discover that no matter what she ate,  she would get heartburn.  That can't be much fun.  But, she has discovered that if she eats a Tums or two before she eats then the HB is not as bad.  So, that is good.

Am I the only one that's reminded of the old Archie Campbell routine by that last paragraph?  Am I the only one that has heard that old Archie Campbell routine?  Did I just date myself?  *sigh*.

The next seven days are going to be the 'careful days' for Dianne.  It is this period of time where her immune system is at it's lowest.  So, from today until next Thursday, it is very easy for Dianne to catch any bugs that are floating about.  This is going to be the routine after each treatment.  Unfortunately, after each 'careful days' period, her immune system doesn't quite come back to the same level as it was.  We will deal with that as it comes, but it is a very important  thing to remember.

And that, dear reader, brings you up to date.  I will, of course, continue to update this wee space in the world wide web, in the hopes that you will continue to find it.  Have a great weekend!!!


PS:  a quick shout out to all those who helped this week - Heather, Evelyn, Joanne and Catherine --> we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.  And of course, to all you who have continued to keep us in your prayers and have supported us in other ways...we thank you as well.  You're not mentioned by name, but you are never forgotten.
