I want to pass on the word about our friend Ken. Guess what? Prayers DO matter. This week-end Ken's wife was filling out papers to have him put in a nursing home since he was in such bad shape physically and mentally. Then . . . he did a one-eighty! Jess, his wife, said it was like someone had flipped a switch and suddenly he came back to being the old Ken. He will still be in the hospital for another 5 to 7 days for more physical therapy, but he has regained his senses and knows people, and very much back to normal. YAY! Evidently the pressure went down on his brain. So if you were one of those people who said a little prayer for him, well . . . it was answered.
Went to the oncologist yesterday for my sixth chemo treatment, but after they did a blood test (as usual) they said my white blood count was a little low and they would have to postpone it for a few days. They even had the tech "hand count" it under a microscope to double check the results. Whatever. So, I had to have a shot of high-powered, white blood restorer yesterday and then go back this morning to get a second dose of it. Then, tomorrow (Thursday) I will get my sixth treatment. Only 12 more to go.
However, these shots are kinda make me feel more tired and ewwgie. I need to get a bunch of stuff done, and I can't get into gear as much as I would like. I spent this morning (after getting my 8 'clock shot) running errands, buying more plants for WBH, and haunting the second-hand stores for bargains. I did find a really neato picture for WBH, and some assorted smaller items.
Today is a special day. It's my Alec's 17th birthday. Time is really flying by. Jenna texted me a picture of him with his breakfast birthday cake (yes, she always lets him have his cake when he gets up on his special day). Then she texted a picture that his teacher had sent her of Alec with a birthday cake that his teachers had gotten him at summer school. He is loved!
Well, I will let you know how tomorrow turns out. Or, I may sleeping for the next few days. hehehe
And, for the love of God, don't watch any of the political news unless you want to get high blood pressure and a nervous condition. Just sayin'.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL AND GOD BLESS AMERICA …PLEASE
