Good morning TGIF!
Mum had if first immunotherapy yesterday, all went went. As this doesn't have the side effects that chemo does she will be able to drive herself to future appointments, that will help her moral being able to do it herself as she is very independent.

Froggy, glad Nancy is good.
Ronnie, sorry to here about you friend :(
Ingrid, glad you were able to get a good nights sleep.

Morning from the queen mary. This place is deserted, walked along the deck to go to dinner and i didnt see one person, it was eerie. Rooms are the actual cabins and most of the interior has been preserved. All the pipped in music is from the old days. Lots of louis armstrong

Meeting for breakfast at 9 and then have to set up for the show. Show is 1-6, hoping its a decent turnout but with this location im not so sure how it will be.

Glad to hear nancy was cleared. Sorry about your friend ronnie Have a great day all.

Good morning! Sunny but very windy and fricken freezing here today.

Glad your Mum's first appointment went well yesterday Pammy.

I'm heading to Mom's for a visit later this morning, and that's about it for the day.

Have a great day friends!

Good morning everyone. Staying inside today. I don't mind the cold but absolutely hate the wind unless I am in Ar*ba. Sorry about your friend Ronnie. Happy that Nancy's been cleared. Still deciding what to pack for the French Alps and London.

Good morning! It's a wet, rainy one here...changing to sn*w this evening. I'm picking up my biking buddy at 11:15 am to go to the uptown bar. He wants to visit with an old friend and razz the bartender about the Chiefs vs Colts game tomorrow. I need to make a quick run to my brother in law's house first.

Good Morning. Working on getting my courses completed, as I have only 3 electives to go. Ailments set me back. Froggy, good news on your Nancy. Ronnie, a prayer for the loss of your friend. Hope everyone can have a positive day and a wish for all!!

Good morning.

Sunny, breezy, 22°. Hoping to catch up in the swamp today. Sorry I have been popping in/out over past 2 months and anticipate more of the same in the near future. As always, thoughts and prayers are with those in need, dealing with health, family or life challenges.

Had to make an emergency trip to my mom's on Monday for increasingly concerning symptoms. I called her dr and met my mom in the local ER. In 10 hrs, they did a variety of lab tests, EKG, xray, ultrasound, CT scan & loaded her up with IV fluids for unexplained liver malfunction issues. (I was impressed at the speed and thorough workup from a small hospital ER.) My siblings and I have been making frequent trips back & forth since Thanksgiving, for various medical concerns. I'm back in CT for a few days and will head back on Sunday to accompany her to medical appts next week. She has been a very active, independent 85 yr old (86 in March). Hoping these sudden health changes are just a temporary rough patch. We set up & activated a Philip's Lifeline Go Safe home and on the go medical alert system, in hopes of maintaining her independence. It has GPS location and fall detection with 24/7 medical response team. Although we all live out of state, thankfully my brother, sister and I have been able to work as a united team in being there for our mom. Mom has updated her health care proxy and medical directives with us, her dr and attorney. We are all clear on her wishes if/when her health deteriorates.

Yesterday was the 45th anniversary of my dad's passing. Always a somber day. My mom was 40 and we were 18, 15, 12(me) & 6. She has been an amazing strong, inspiration for over coming adversity since his death. We continue to miss my dad's presence, especially for all of life's milestones.

Donna, thoughts with you & your mum that the recent health issues are just a temporary thing.
Hugs on the anniversary of your dad's passing
