It finally happened!

I got sick-the routine kind this time.  I hadn’t caught a Cold or come down with the Flu in almost 2 years.  My family has been sick numerous times over that period, but somehow God must have thought that I had enough on my plate-Until now.  I attended my nephew Zane’s birthday party last Saturday and got exposed to a nasty virus.  Since that party, my Mom, Dad, Jill’s Dad and I have all gotten sick.  My nephews were feeling pretty well that day and only coughed a little bit.  Since then they have all had big issues including all 3 of them being diagnosed with RSV.  The big surprise was that Brenden and Jaxson didn’t catch anything.  Karen missed the party as she was at a photo shoot.  That was lucky for us as she has done her wonderful job of picking up the slack as I have been knocked down again.  I had/have a fever, sore throat and cough-but am starting to bounce back.  I just feel  blessed that I came down with it while on my chemo break, after all my scans and in-between radiation appointments.

Speaking of radiation…I get radioactive the first week of March.  The hospital called and scheduled my radiation appointment for March 3rd.  (Cancer cells look out there is a new enemy approaching!)

Overall I am feeling relatively normal.  I have gained more and more hair and about 6 lb.’s of weight since being off of chemo.  I am almost healed from last weeks pre-radiation procedure.

For those of you wanting to attend the Pray for the Cure meeting, it is next Monday night at 7 p.m.

I hope all of you are well-better than me at least!  Thank you for all your comments, thought and prayers.  Karen, I and they guys really appreciate them.

    Sorry about your virus, but great work in the Out-Of-Bounds slalom at the Olympics. I didn’t even know you were in them, with all you’ve been going through, but I was able to catch a reply online here… You’ve got my vote for the gold!

    Laughter is one of the better medicines they tell me.
