Monday evening, we are fat and happy

Dear Family and Friends,

We are sitting her relaxing and watching a new episode of the Closer. The ladies have been watching reruns all day. Dana has been cooking all day and the food is wonderful. When I just got home Nikki and Keanna were here, they smelled the food at their home. Nikki was so full that she was just sitting and enjoying the moment. Keanna had just finished swimming lessons.

Nan had her normal session with Terry our nurse this morning, she drew blood and said Nan was doing well. Terry had a big day ahead but we were her first patient. She has been so helpful over the past few months and has been instrumental in guiding nan's care over and over again.

Dana has been cooking all day today and the food was great. I just finished loading the dishwasher and the last time I saw that many pans dirty was when Dana was here 2 years ago. What a privilege it is to have her with us.

Nan has had some increased back pain today in spite of her meds. We received a great email from Travis at Dana Farber with the actual forms that need to be filled out to apply to Novartis for compassionate use of AMN. I printed them out and faxed them to our doctors office asking that they forward them to him where ever he was today. In the morning I will try to catch up with him and get this process going. also see what he thinks about starting Sprycel.

Keanna painted a nice picture for her grammy which we appreciate. When I got home from doing reviews in Fairfield and Vacaville they were here having just completed eating. It is always great to see family, morning, night or whenever. Nan got to see Mary today too. She is just back from branson where she has been for a week. We love Mary and getting to see her is special.

My work is keeping me really busy and suddenly there is plenty to do again. Not that the checks are flooding the mailbox but at least we are putting money on the books. I am doing relocation reports, FHA reverse mortgage reports, some sales and a few refis as well. I rely on Loree and Jean to assist and they do a great job. Steve just about has the boat running again. Instead of taking it to a shop he took it to his friends who can do just about anything and they have it running for the season. Amazing after the neglect it experienced all winter under a tarp beside the house.

Tonight I want to thank Dana and just before Dana Marilyn for helping nan get back on her feet again. Family and friends have been wonderful in their help and kind words and prayers.

We send our love, call when you get a chance. I hear nan on the phone all the time, try after 10 am and before 10 at night. She is usually up during that 12 hour span.

    Good evening Mustards,

    I can't believe no one added their comments today. It's been a busy day for me, but I do read the blog daily.

    I hope today brought good news on the experimental drug and that Nan was not in so much pain.

    With Dana's expertise in cooking you both should be enjoying some good nutrition. Having a good balanced meal is always a welcome thing.

    Take care and have a good night.

    Love and prayers ~ Carol

    More great days! Go figure. Ain't life wonderful. We know it is. It is just that ours is so much richer because we get to share yours too.

    Praying that the fax to the doctor gets immediate attention. Then we can read about more wonderful news.

    Wes and Nan
