You guys are making me cry....happy tears, of course. None of you can begin to know how much your love and concern give me the strength to continue on. The oncologist wanted to know If I would meet with a counselor, and I told her I had hundreds of on-line counselors and a wonderful family that were giving all the support I need! My life has been long, and it's been good. Having this dropped on me was quite the surprise, but I'm dealing with it well, I think, and determined to live as normally as possible for as long as possible. 1st. and 2nd. Man, you are amazing, wonderful friends. Gammy Tammy, I'm so happy I found you, and your artwork is fantastic!
I have begun planting my garden. It's slow work for me, but I'm enjoying my few minutes a day doing some easy work outside. My dear son-in-law, "Bigfoot Bryan", came to help me yesterday. I threatened to take Mr. Granny's cane and give his ankles a big whack if he dared step off my garden paths! He's pretty scared of me, LOL!
My youngest daughter has been helping with grocery shopping and trips to the doctors, as well as just being here for me when I need her. My older daughter has filled my freezer with pre-cooked meals, so all I have to do for dinner is toss something in the oven or crockpot. Mr. Granny is holding up better than I expected, he's even learning how to feed the dogs.
Today I have to make an appointment for a couple of biopsies, then wait for results so the oncologist knows what kind of chemo to use. I've finished with the radiation, but still must have another MRI of my brain and another meeting with that doctor in a month. I've been poked and prodded with needles and IVs until I feel like a sieve! I'll try to do an occasional update here on my blog, but I don't want to turn this normally happy spot into a pity party.
The good Lord willing, I plan to see my garden grow strong and productive, and to be around to bring in that one final harvest! SO................Let's garden on!
