It's Friday!

CT Scan appointment was uneventful. After a long walk with Honey, Karen arrived and we headed out. I consulted with staff, told them my history and concerns and it was determined that I need not utilize my port - so we veined it - no problems - in and out in 10 minutes. Karen and I went for lunch and we sat in the sunniest location we could find. It was warm and wonderful.

I have to tell you that the Bolton story is really bothering me. There is lot more to this than we know. We will now have to live through this issue for the next "while". It raises so many issues. I will try my best to keep my thoughts straight about it. These things I know: Barbara had advanced stage 4 breast cancer - metastatic breast cancer, and it is said she was battling for years. She was getting to the end of her battle - was her husband alone in her care? Where was palliative care? Anyway, I'm not going to go on right now. During my morning walk it really hit home - there I was in that gorgeous sunshine crying as Honey and I walked along. I couldn't help it - my creative side always gets involved - and a poem entered: Will You Call Her Emma? for the future grand child that I may or may not get to know. Sorry. That's my reality. I had to pull myself out of it - and I did and I will and I am.

MARY'S HOME! (Honey is really happy.) Got home with Jim last night. So for a while the nest is a bit fuller! Tickets for her March 1 show available at 752-4800. Robyn is the real thing apparently. Hope to see some folks out. I do know that tickets are selling and there is a limited capacity. She asked me to sing a song!

Got my list for Monday. Fighting a stuffy nose/sore throat - hoping it does not progress. Funny about tomorrow - I hear there's weather on the way.

Okay - "they" say we should get our chores done early today and we are planning on a turkey dinner tomorrow with Mary, with all the trimmings so off we go! Hospital, groceries and church are my new reality.

Peace to you, and thank you for your positive comments and continuing support. It means a whole lot to me and my family.

Emma Lee
