Happy Mother's Day

HAPPY belated MOTHER'S DAY to all you mom's out there. I hope you had a wonderful day. I had a nice day with Teya and Todd making me breakfast and gave me a lovely bouquet of flowers. We grilled out for dinner and ate outside on our patio. It was nice.

Teya had a Mother's Day Party in her class the Friday before and it was great. They sang some songs that made us mom's teary eyed and she made me some wonderful gifts - see below.

Teya Flower

She made me a pin out of puzzle pieces and gems - beautiful!

Here is the picture she drew for me. What an aritist!

Teya's New Bed

I went shopping at Ikea for the first time last weekend. Wow, that was an experience. Anyway, Teya had outgrown her toddler bed, so Todd, Teya and I went looking for a new bed for her. We were successful and found one that we all liked. It has a mattress sort of like a futon, but thicker and the head of her bed comes up into a semi sitting position. It is really cool. She got a new sheet set and of course it is pink. Also, the quilt that my Aunt Shelly made will look great on her new bed (it is still one of Teya's favorite blankets).

In this photo you can see the curtains that her
Grammy (Penny) made for her room. They are beautiful.

Round 8

I began round 8 this past Tuesday. I've been, of course, tired, dehydrataed, a little nauseous and my legs feel like they weigh a hundred pounds. Other than that I have felt pretty good. I'm hoping that the next week continues this smoothly.

Since this round was delayed by 2 weeks, if I continued on the normal schedule, 14 days on and 14 days off, I would be doing treatments during my summer vacations - NOT GOOD! I'm hoping to be able to alter the treatment schedule to be off this stuff while on my vacations. We'll see what the doctor says.

I'm a little behind, but here are some pictures from Easter. We had some fun at our home and then went over to The Sutton house for brunch and an egg hunt. We had yummy food courtesy of Janie and her mom and then the kids enjoyed an egg hunt. It was a great day!

No Swine Flu

Hello All!

No, I do not have the Swine Flu. I was extremely sick with either a virus or the flu (but not the pork kind). I was home and in bed/on the couch for a week, but I am on the mends and will hopefully be fully recovered soon. Because of all this, I was put on a antibiotic, so my treatment is on hold. I'm not sure when I will begin my next round. I should have started April 21st. I'll speak with my docs next week and figure it out.
