Odds and Ends

Hi all,

Deb has struggled the last couple of days with what we now think are allergies rather than a cold. She was up and down most of last night and as a result, didn't go to work today. She had acid reflux and nausea. Her temp was good so we really weren't alarmed. She sounds so tiny at times.

I like her new haircut. She says she cried in the car after she realized that she wouldn't be getting another for some time. She said she felt really depressed.

She read all the material from the doctors and now understands most of what can happen and how to avoid the really dangerous stuff.

She says she feels some sensation in the tumor. Dr. Weyburn examined her today and said that everything that's going on is normal. Her counts (Blood etc) are down, but he says to do everything we can, based on her tolerance and stamina.

Deb said the session with the wig lady went well and her custom creation should be here next week. Cher? I'm taking Sebastian to the Shedd Aquarium tomorrow. He won't be here much longer. It is hard to imagine him gone.

Great support from so many people. Today she got a great survivor hat and scarf from Brad and Char. Our pink ribbon stuff came so now I have a pink wrist band to wear.

We want to thank everyone that is cheering for us. Someone said he was going to pray for her, but he was sure that God would wonder who the stranger was, since it had been a long time. I said maybe it was time to renew the acquaintance. We believe in the power of prayer.

There are many many people who have suffered and died or survived breast cancer. We feel confidant we will survive, but the battle has only just begun.

Tonight is my sleep test at Centegra in Woodstock.

We need 4 hugs a day for survival. We need 8 hugs a day for maintenance. We need 12 hugs a day for growth.

Take care,
