As usual, time has had a way of slipping by without giving me notice of its leaving. I have been a little busier than usual though. I have kept Lady Bug several days when her mom and dad couldn’t work out their schedules. She is a joy to have around!
I also have been sewing for this weekend’s confirmation reunion to celebrate the church’s 150 anniversary in San Antonio. My great grandfather was one of the first marriages in that church and the families were founding members, so this is an important thing for me!

Yesterday was the last of the scheduled chemo. I still believe that I am cured. You know "hope springs eternal in the human breast." I have had that feeling since the mastectomy and the beginning of the chemo, and I still do. There is that nagging feeling that I shouldn’t get too hopeful. I know things can still be lurking. So I have to be ready to face reality.

My close chemo center is still closed. Someone must have really dropped the ball. It must be some kind of insurance thing or some licensing thing. I asked the nurse who is over there yesterday when she was giving me my drugs if they would reopen next week, and she said she didn’t know. She is anxious for it to reopen because she lives, as I do, close. When she gets off in the evening it takes her an hour to get home from the main office - where we have to go - as opposed to 15 minutes from the close center.

I get to go back over the 20+ miles just to get the Neulasta today. It is so tempting to blow it off, but being around people this weekend would be taking a risk. I guess I need to stimulate those little disease fighting white cells! I just hope I don’t get to go back to the main office next week for another red cell shot since I haven’t really responded and am still anemic.

We are heading to the hill country this weekend. It is not that far from San Antonio, and we can leave Simone in the house for a few hours as opposed to sending her to Summer Camp for a few days at the vet’s office. She's so much happier just being alone for a bit!

Besides, we haven’t been up for five weeks. I need to make sure that my patch around the place where the satellite cable comes into the house worked and the mice are gone! Wonderful thing to find the last time. I am just praying they are gone, and I have an electric mouse trap now, but I don’t want them in AT ALL!! Wish me luck.

Have a good weekend, and I’ll catch up with you next week..
