Weekend Wrap Up and the Monday Morning Blues...

We had such a great time at Arbor Oaks in Lake Charles.  Ashley and I actually completed our Christmas Card Albums (yes, non-scrapbooker sister Ashley)...most of us made a Book Wreath...tons of layouts and cards were completed...good time was had by all....

Except for the little present I brought home...a cough and fever...damn it...you leave the bubble for a few days and it bites you in the arse!  Last night fever spiked at 102.1...not much sleeping happened...just aches and fever...

So today is Chemo Day...luckily no "interesting" waiting room convos...just one loud talker who was VERY proud of her children and grandchildren (even Ironman said, "I can't even block her out to read"...and Ironman can block anything out!)  So we go in to see Dr. Spell.  I'm definitely fighting something  - probably a virus b/c my WBC dropped two points from the Rockstar numbers last week.  He considers delaying my chemo a few days...but then drops this line..."Our goal here is to save your life, so I'd prefer to keep chemo on schedule"....What reverberates through my head in slow motion all day?  "s a v e   y o u r   l i f e"...these are the doses of reality that I choose to ignore...so we move ahead with chemo...and Spell ends our little visit with "I'm just showing you how tough you can be"...good times...this week should be a blast!...

now just for fun, I'm going to show you a few scrumptious things that I have found on the Internet lately...no post is complete without a picture!!






have a laughter filled week!!!  PS - in case you love any of these, I found all of them at Patina Stores...

I did laugh out loud at the Shit list and the last sign about agreeing and being wrong. I go today to find out why I have spots on my brain. UG. You are an inspiration and will keep you posted to the prognosis. I will be getting two opinions, and hopefully have some answers by this afternoon.....Thanks for keeping us laughing.
Kindest regards,

I'm going to have Shelly spray the house with ten cans of lysol before we arrive in March at AO. I love the signs. I need a little note pad made up for the shit list so I can just hand them out when needed.

Ok, so the shit list almost had me pee in my pants as I sit here in Pamera waiting to take a breather with a friend. That was hilarious! You keep on fighting Heather and keep laughing because that is what keeps us sane and soothes the soul...and of course, keep us from crying. Hoping to get a little sumthin sumthin today as well. This was a great start! LOL! Sending you Love Heather.
