Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

The best laid plans etc. are not happening for us. We have seven grand kids and have manged to see only two this month. We had Christmas for Bryon and Alexa early this month. Last week we were suppose to go to Beloit, WI to see Mason and Madyson and their parents but Sarah got sick and we didn't go. Sarah is finally feeling better after getting medicine from her doctor. Well, Sarah gave me whatever it is she has and I started coughing yesterday and it got worse during the night. So this morning I went to the ER at the VA to get something, I don't want it to turn into something worse. The doctor prescribed the same thing Sarah is taking, Z Pak, the doctor said to wait to see if I got worse, I don't think so, I started taking it right away.

Today we are suppose to go see Emily, Isabel and Eli in a program at their church and then they were coming over to our house for dinner and open their presents. Well, that isn't going to happen, Sarah may still to to the program, I won't, and the kids won't be coming over here. Sarah will most likely go to their house, she has the fixing's for oyster soup and Daniel requested it and I don't want to waste the oysters.

Tomorrow I'll see how I feel as to whether I go to church and to the kids house. What a bummer.

A bigger bummer is we are suppose to go to WI, Friday, to see Mason and Madyson, I hope I feel good enough to go. Also, Jan 2 is our planned date to head for AZ via Kansas City.

As I said the best laid plans etc., I am glad we are flexible in our scheduling.

Sarah and I want to wish each and everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Update 12/10/14

Met with my oncologist on Monday, had lab work and a CT scan, bottom line is the doctor was happy with what he saw and said he would see me in March 2015. Happy days are here and Praise the Lord.

This doesn’t mean I have no cancer, I will always have it but the chemo has taken the cancer to a level where hopefully my immune system can keep it in check, along with the shot I get every 90 days. I take one day at a time but still plan to do things in the future.

We haven’t been doing much since my last posting. We have met with friends, Norma & Orren, had Christmas with Tiffany, Matt, Bryon and Alexa. We also went out to eat with them. Great to see them, don’t get to see them that much but maybe if the treatments hold off we can do that more next year. My brother Larry and his wife Kathy came to visit right before Thanksgiving, Cynthia came over Thanksgiving Day and we all went to Ernie & Shirley’s for Thanksgiving dinner. Their boys Michael & Daniel and their families were there also. We had a great time and more food that anyone could imagine, all of it was delicious. It was a great time.

We met John & Cindi for lunch one day at Out Back Steakhouse. They are staying put this winter and not going south. We had a good time visiting, then we always have fun when we see them.

Carl & Merilee are coming to our house today and tomorrow we are heading to Texarkana, TX for nephew Eric’s wedding. It will be fun to see some of the family we haven’t seen for a while.

Not much else to report, so I’ll end this with a
