Wednesday

oops on the spelling last post, loses, oh well

Since we got home last Tuesday:

Chuck's been really sick, since Thursday actually.  He actually agreed to go to
a walk in clinic on Sunday-meaning really sick.  The Dr. said he has the worst
kind of flu you can get and that he's extremely contagious.  He's been wearing
a mask.  I've been wearing one in the bedroom and gloves.  I've been sleeping
on the couch until last night.  I couldn't do it again.  I can't move when I get up.
So I slept with a mask.  That is a strange feeling but I felt better this morning.

I had a mammogram Thursday.  No new cancer!  Yay!  Everyone, get your mammograms
when you're supposed to.  I waited not quite 2 years in between and now have
stage 4 that spread to my bones.  I had to have a rod and bolt put in my left leg
because a tumor ate 75% of the top of the leg bone.  Last time I went to the Dr.
she said to let her know when I need more radiation.  I said, "what? how will
I know?"  She said you'll know and they're going to treat things as they come up.
But, she also said God could heal me of all of this!  I like her and I believe that
He can but whether or not- I choose to trust Him.
I will do my part (and try to make better food choices anyway).
So in all that again I say Get Your Mammograms!

It's been weird trying to get back on our time since we got back.  I got used to
the time difference 2 days before we came back and now can't seem to get off
of it.  I went to bed after 1 and got up - too late for me!  I need to start working
on that!

I haven't done any art...aarrgghh!  I brought my sketchbook, watercolor pad on
the trip and only spent 30 minutes the whole trip painting.  We were just so busy
and exhausted when not.  So I have a lot of things to paint, draw, photos to play
with in photoshop, tons.  Just need to get to it.

Actually, no photos this post, wow!

And super happy to hear my friend Greg was supposed to get a stint put in yesterday
for a major blockage and went home with the Dr. saying everything looks good, don't
need it!  That's a praise, whether he believes in God or not!

Thank you for the advice about the mammogram. I am so sorry that you are going through this trying time, but God CAN heal you.

Hope your husband is feeling better. The worst kind of flu you can get-Whoa. You don't want to catch that.

Have a great weekend, and I hope you find time to do some healing art.

I say get those red cowboy boots and wear them every day!
