Holding her own............

Dear Ones,
Quick blog tonight, time to go to bed, where does the evening go? mary came to spend time with nan early this evening and nan always appreciates that. What a precious friend she is to both of us.
I drove to the valley today for an appraisal, then to Brentwood for meds and to deliver an appraisal, then home to see the girls, then back to Brentwood for three photos of houses and Kentucky Fried for marilyn's dinner, then home to enjoy mary and have some cherrios and prepare her TPN, Adavan, pump her tummy and now to head to bed.

Tomorrow we have to be up and out around 8:15 to 8:30 so we can make the PET scan in Walnut Creek through traffic. Then bring our precious patient home to rest for awhile. Nikki and Keanna are coming tomorrow evening for dinner, something special to look forward to.

Nan has had a day of controlled pain, Terry came early afternoon for blood draw and helped us learn how to clear the line for pumping the stomach. We got word today that the blood cultures were negative, nothing growing but there were bugs in the urine, always are so we took the last antibiotic this evening and we'll see what happens with fevers before we try other antibiotics.

Please remember Nan tomorrow as she has to endure a drive of an hour each way and about 1/2 in the PET machine. it will not be pleasant at all. It will tell us something about the state of the tumors at this point in time, vital information. If all goes well.

Please keep nan in your heart and prayers, she is having a very rough patch in her life right now with very little fun.

    Good Morning!

    We will keep you both in our thoughts and prayers today as you endure the PET scan. We pray for no traffic snarls, as few bumps in the road as possible, easing of the pain and answers as to why the pain.

    May God bless you today in ways we do not know.

    Love and prayers ~ Carol

    Good Morning from Lodi,

    We too will Pray that the Pet Scan & the trip to get there go well and that Nan will be comfortable.

    Nice & Cool this Morning but We are preparing for the Hot Weather to come. Not fun but all We can do about it is complain and that does no good at all.

    Have a comfortable ride and may things go well .

    Love You,

    Bob & Carrol.

    How sweet it is to be loved by you! That is Nan's favorite song as well many of your friends and all of the rest of your family. You are quite a guy, even on your regular days.

    You know I got some industrial detergent in my eye once and it burned like hades and took of part of the outer skin off of my eyeball. Yikes! Well with ointment and the eye patch a week or so of healing and the pain was just a fast fading memory. By design we forget the bad and even the tragic seems like some elses dream, while the good and positve experiences seem like fish stories. They get better every time you hear them.

    I pray that tomorrow will have many more happy memories than difficult ones.
