Let’s Party #30!

Hey! Are you ready for another Party??

simpler wines rose case

We head to MD Anderson on Thursday for our 2nd follow up and scan. We are not overly optimistic … there are some lingering issues from the chemo and I think Mark is feeling some of the things that first made him go to the doctor before his diagnosis. We try not to think about it too much as anxiety doesn’t do anything good for you! PLUS we don’t know what the next step is if the Folfox stuff is finished.

We are settling in to the house, somewhat. I’m trying not to go too much in as we are only here temporarily. BUT geesh, I could not wait for Comcast to get here and fix the cable and internet! Took forever. They finally had a technician out on Sunday afternoon (yes, Sunday!) and the issue was STILL not resolved so they came back again on MONDAY morning and fixed 3 of the 4 boxes. Of course, the master bedroom has NO cable still and the WIFI is on the other side of the house so Hubby is going to look for an amplifier or whatever those things are called.

Thank you for sticking with me through this move … it’s not been easy and has been more stressful that I admitted out loud! BUT I’m trying to get settled in hopefully once we have the cable and internet running to full capacity, things will fall in place 😉

Let’s get on with the party, shall we??

Let’s Party #29!

Hey! Are you ready for another Party??

kitten says say whwat.jpg

Mark had his 10th and what should be his FINAL Treatment last Tuesday … he convinced the local oncologist to sign him up for one more before we head back to MD Anderson but now says he may not do the 7 day pill regime, just the infusion. Those pills really, really mess him up and make him feel like crud. To the point where he wanted to just ditch taking them half way through the week. Not GOOD. BUT if he chooses not to take the bonus round of pills, that is his choice … I have a feeling Dr. B at MD KNEW that 10 would be the maximum to tolerate …

We are in FULL BLOWN MOVING mode. We close on our sale 8/8 and our purchase 8/10. Of course, we have some extensive work to do to the condo we are buying … I’m hoping to add about 500 more square feet … IN MY DREAMS! OMG I didn’t think we had this much stuff! Mark has been taking care of the garage and I get to take care of the inside … 4 bedrooms, 3 baths … 2 kitchens … LOTS OF STUFF. Staging furniture was moved out on Monday. Our movers come on Saturday. We have a temporary “home” for a few months, thanks to a wonderful open and generous heart of someone who is seriously the BEST and most kindest person in the whole wide world … we will have a FULL house (which is a custom built really retro home) that is fully furnished and functional for as long as we need it. Seriously, I can NOT wait to share pictures of this place … the person who offered this up to us is just wanting to give a good place for Mark to lay his head at night to deal and heal his body … does that just not give you the chills? Oh, and the cats? It’s ok, there’s been 17 cats and dogs in that house over the years, it will be just fine…

I will forever be in debt to this person in my heart even though they do not ask for anything in return. I don’t even have the words STILL to share how I feel.

Ok, ok, let’s get on with the party since I’m LATE today …

Mark had his 10th treatment earlier today and isn’t feeling all that great today.  But he did come home with this cool Llama pillow.  A local church makes them and brings them around to all the infusion centers.  How cool … and wonderful. Mark said most of the patients were happy to receive these little gifts.

Mark has one more treatment in 2 weeks … the same week we close on the sale of our house and the purchase of the new condo. THEN we go to MD Anderson the following week for a follow up scan and testing … thoughts and prayers are always appreciated!

Last week we had some great shares and thanks for those of you who keep coming back every week and sharing your great ideas and projects!

I made these awesome taters on Saturday night … OLD recipe in this house but it’s been YEARS since I’ve made them … will be sharing later this week so make sure you check back!

I had a few technical difficulties last week so thank you letting me know that you were not able to link up. Still don’t know what the issue was. It was a crazy busy week and I just didn’t have time to sit down and figure it out. Here’s hoping that once this house stuff is all over and done with I can get back to my fun job – BLOGGING!

Are you all ready for the 4th? I’m not. I won’t be doing much as Mark is gone, the kids are on the West coast, and well, I’ve got stuff that I should be doing around here, like decluttering, packing and finding our next home!

Mark had his 8th treatment last week and started on the 7 day regime of pills on Thursday.  He started a couple of days later than he should have due to the lack of communication and follow through of the PA but hey, it all worked out. He’s up in NW Indiana right now and said it is HOT … coming from someone who has lived in South Florida for the past 35 years or so, that says a lot!

Last week we had some great shares, yet again! I want to thank all of your for stopping in and sharing!

I never share Big Kitty Kitty so here he is! Massive Kitty with massive paws and claws to go along …

Mark goes for his 8th treatment today … and it’s messed up. We got clearance for him to do the infusion and then he gets to take 6 pills a day for 7 days straight. That way he wouldn’t have to do the pump for an additional 48 hours. That allows him a little more freedom and the ability to travel. Perfect! Makes things seem much more doable, right?

Mark had his 7th treatment last Tuesday … he did surprisingly well but said they took one drug out as he only had the one bag instead of two … his side effects were not as bad as they were after the 6th one AND they didn’t come on as fast.  Sadly, everything has a funky taste he said. That stinks. I’m hoping it gets better but so far not happening.

Kitten is making sure that we don’t leave home without her. Her and Kitty Kitty have a vet visit today and we pulled the carriers out over the weekend to get them used to being out as Kitty Kitty is pretty smart and knows what they mean … he’s a b!tch to get in the crate since he does not let anyone pick him up but me, and even that is limited.  We have a pill to give him to ‘relax’ him but he still puts up a fight to put him in the crate. Mark had to wear his welder gloves the last time.  I’m not sure how he’s going to do this all by himself but he said he’s up to the task!

OH! Did you know you can save $10 off your first Walmart Pick Up order? Yes, This IS an affiliated and I will be receive a little compensation IF you use it BUT I am all about saving you some money too! I’m swinging by on my way to see my Dad tomorrow and plan on saving myself about 45 minutes to an hour of that time by doing this! Even better? I can see how much my bill is as I add stuff … sweet!

I am so thankful that you all keep coming back every week to share your wonderful creations, ideas and thoughts! We had some great shares again!

Mark had his SIXTH and last treatment 2 weeks ago. He is skipping this week as we have his follow up at MD Anderson on Thursday and Friday this week … thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated!  Depending on the results of his scans will determine if he continues the brutal every other week for 3 days each time treatment or if something else needs to be done. I will add that the metal taste has not gone away, he’s still sensitive to cold foods/drinks, his fingertips are numb and tingly as are the bottoms of his feet. The doctor was to have turned down the drugs that cause neuropathy but Mark thinks maybe he turned it up since the last treatment really kicked his butt.

I missed the last 2 weeks … came down with a wicked cold (and yes, Mark did catch it as well 🙁 but recovered faster than me!) and work was just plain crazy busy. I’m glad May is over but not so happy we are in the sixth month of the year!

I’m hoping you all had an awesome time this past weekend with Cinco de Mayo, the Kentucky Derby, my birthday AND if you live local, the Air and Sea Show!

Mark had treatment #5 Tuesday. Currently sleeping still this morning as that stuff makes him all jacked up on Tuesday … was fidgeting still at 2am so I have no idea what time he fell asleep finally! We head to Houston that first week of June so excited/nervous/scared … prayers are accepted!

Last week we had some AWESOME shares yet again! You guys all rock! Thank you for stopping by each week to give inspiration and ideas to all of us!
