Good morning. I hit traffic at every turn today. There were accidents everywhere. Long ride in to work. :evil:

ML, hope you and Mario are feeling better by the day. Dan, let us know how your testing goes today. I hope George's checkup for his eye goes well. Karen...sn*w...yuck. We've been lucky with minimal sn*w so far this year.

I'm thinking about Ingrid, her sister and their family today.

Enjoy your day.

Good morning!

Carolina you are amazing, caring for this young man's well being. Hopefully he can find the strength to turn himself around and live a happy, healthy life.

BP, best wishes with your test today.

Ingrid, sending strength to you and your family today.

Have a nice day friends!

Good morning,
Health & healing to those in need.
Extra hugs for Ingrid.

Got a bit of a gut punch Monday, we were initially told the cancer my mum had was contained to 3 areas & would be treated with 6 weeks of radiation then she would be good to go. Met with the oncologist Monday & she said mum has stage 4 lung cancer & will be starting Keytruda ( an immunotherapy) which she will need every 3 weeks until it stops working :(.
She will also get the radiation to shrink the tumors. Dr thinks mum is a good candidate for this type of treatment & said it is a lot easier on the body than chemo although there are still some serious possible side effects (which we are hoping she doesn't get).

I know the monkey prayers are being stretched thin right now but anything you can send would be greatly appreciated.

Good morning! I'm seriously going to finish painting the ceilings today. Then I have woodwork and windows to clean. I spent half the day yesterday dinkin around with the garage door opener that wouldn't work. It's fixed :D

Good luck at the dr, Dan--I expect to be meeting you in the flesh in April! MaryLou and Mario--I hope you both continue to be on the mend. I never heard of frozen shoulders. Pat, Ann, DonnaLee and anyone else who has been have colds--I hope you all have a better day today.

Enjoy the day with you daughter and SIL, Tom--sounds fun!

Ingrid, by now the funeral is over for you. Maybe you're at the burial site? I hope you get some sleep tonight.

I'm so sorry to read that, Pammy. I, too, hope she doesn't get the side effects and continues life as normally as possible for a long time.

Sorry to hear your update on your Mom, Pammy. :( Try to focus on the positive message from the Dr. Also sorry to see your ticker gone :( Hopefully it is just on-hold until your Mom gets through this and feels like travelling.

Yes, ticker is gone until we see how she responds to treatment, it could be that if she is feeling better we go to UK sooner. The island trip while not yet cancelled it probably will be as mum is our house/dog sitter, so on hold until we see how she is doing.

Good Morning!
Very windy , sn*w is coming.
Tree is still in living room. Yesterday I decided to clean out the closet where half of the Christmas decorations are stored. Well that meant looking at every little thing in the closet. It is all sorted and clean, makes me happy. Why it took all day puzzles me.
Good Luck today, Dan.
More prayers for your Mother, Pammy.


Have nice day ALL~

Awwww, Pammy.... :( I totally understand the gut-punch regarding your Mum's diagnosis. Prayers that the Keytruda works well for her, and that the radiation does as well. Prayers for you as well while you walk this walk with her. Hugs...
