Thanks for the inquiries, I am doing great!

Hi there everyone, I have been delinquent again in keeping you all informed. Sorry and that means a number of you had to actually inquire. So I am glad to report that all is going well. This week I actually don't have any medical or doctor's appointments, Yahoo! The past Saturday Michael and I participated in the Walt Disney World Holiday Bird Count. Our zone to look for birds was around the Magic Kingdom. It was a gorgeous Florida day with nothing but sunny skies, a light breeze and temperatures in the high 70's. We saw lots of beautiful birds from Bald Eagles to tiny Blue Gray Gnatcatchers. I am including some photos from that event. Wendy
At home Michael and I are working on getting our spring garden going and just generally enjoying the great weather. This week we will celebrate my Dad's 79th Birthday. Happy Birthday Papa!

Any Port?

So today Dr Chambers installed a Power Port. This is a mechanism that maintains a catheter in a vein that the doctors access to deliver chemo treatments. Oddly enough it is in the right side of my chest not the left. My friends out there who are sailors will get the humor. The procedure went fine and Michael and I were home by early afternoon.while my shoulder aches some I am happily ensconced on the couch with a dog on my feet and Michael is preparing dinner. I am very lucky. It will be a quiet weekend for us and I hope a good weekend for you all.

Happy New Year!

Here we are in 2013 and I hope you are having a great start! It is beautiful here with bright blue sky and warm temperatures. I pray that you will have a wonderful year. I am doing well a week after the last radiation treatment. The fatigue has eased and healing has begun. I am spending longer on the stationary bike every time I ride it and that makes me happy. Tomorrow I plan on getting back in the pool for a nice swim since the weather is so nice. I can't get too aggressive for a couple of months while my bones heal and fill in the gaps, but that doesn't mean I have to be still! Michael is watching me like a hawk to make sure I stay inside my boundaries. This week is already a blessing as I don't have any medical or doctor appointments, and that is a first since November. Not that I am complaining, the team at MD Anderson has been wonderful. I cannot say enough about how much I appreciate them. So I hope that the New Year finds you surrounded by your loved ones and that the coming year brings you many blessings and opportunities to bless others. Love, Wendy
