Quiet weekend

Not much to report, just hanging out at home, planning the fall garden and watching some sports. UCf Knights made a good showing against the #12 SC Gamecocks, just came up a little short. Unfortunately the Tampa Rays also came up short against Toronto and now they are in a mess in the wild card race. I am feeling good and only have three more radiation treatments. Thanks for your prayers and thoughts. God hears us! Wendy

Keeping you updated

Not that there is much new to tell. But after all the info last week I thought that I best stay current. So I am at radiation every morning by 7:30 and gone 5 minutes after that. Piece of cake. Yesterday I also saw my two doctors and they are happy with the treatment and progress. It is good to have happy doctors! Once we finish the radiation treatments there will be another scan and changes to my drug regimen. But none of that should be a big deal in daily activity. I continue to be amazed at how The Lord protected me over the last few weeks while I was not paying attention. I clearly see His hand protecting me and guiding me. This is always humbling and takes me to my knees (where I belong). So thank you for your thoughts and prayers. Trusting in Him

New update

Hey ya'll Should have posted this yesterday when I got HOME! Sorry about that. After two radiation treatments over Thursday and Friday and that much longer on the IV steroids the doctors said I could go home. I continue the steroid treatment with tablets and go for another 8 radiation fractions over the next week and a half. It is so great to be on my own couch with at least one dog snuggled up and sometimes both. I can do light activity, Michael let me do laundry and cook an easy dinner but I was not allowed to help him till or rake the garden! Tomorrow I am going to church and back to work on Monday. Just wanted to let you know that I am doing well, thanks be to The Lord and some awesome doctors, nurses, technicians and others at MD Anderson Cancer Center! Wendy

Hey everybody! While I like sharing fun travel or fishing stuff with you all today is a health update. I have recently had some back pain and this week we determined that one of the spot on my vertebrae has grown some and is pressing on the spinal cord. So I am currently in patient at MD Anderson Cancer Center here in Orlando receiving steroid treatment to reduce the swelling. It is amazing the improvement in the pain since yesterday. I will also be starting radiation therapy to shrink the cancerous cells on that vertebra. In this situation I clearly see God in control as we were scheduled to head out on a two week vacation in Yellowstone next week and that could have had very serious results. So praise Him for the guiding hand. Yellowstone will be there next year! Just wanted to let you all know what is going on. Thank you for any and all prayers on behalf of Michael and me. Trusting in Him, Wendy

Pine Island Weekend

HI everyone, I am a little late posting this but had a busy work week. Last weekend over Labor Day Michael and I were down in Pineland,Florida with PERFAKT (Pineland Eating, Relaxing,Fishing and Kayaking Team). Meetings of the group are held at our friends Chris and Gayle Bundschu's home and attended generally by the four of us along with Stan and Beth Doerr. This past Saturday we headed out for a fishing trip with Captain Shane Dooley. WE had a great time and actually caught fish too. Here are three photos from the excursion and one of the amazing sunset from Chris and Gayle's porch.
Things are good here and I hope all is well with you and yours. Love, Wendy
