I've enjoyed my three days away from the hospital and doctors.

The High Mass yesterday was beautiful. Father Schorp sang the Mass, and the schola was there.

We have two young men from our Latin community going to seminary this fall, thanks to Father Kloster.

Mom and I ate at the Asian buffet after Mass. She was feeling a bit dizzy during Mass. I think she needed to eat. She loves the Asian buffet.

I fell asleep last night listening to a chant CD sent to me by a friend. Beautiful! I slept well and woke up early this morning. The only place I had to go was to Mom's, so I had a very peaceful, quiet day.

I did a little laundry, cleaned up my kitchen, got all the trash in the cart on the curb this morning, and took some little cat naps throughout the day. And I got lots of puppy kisses. :o)

Josh came over this evening and brought me some dinner. Cyrise made one of the recipes from the cookbook I gave our girls for Christmas a couple of years ago--pork chops supreme. It was so good. Thank you, Cyrise and Josh! I had a hot fudge sundae for dessert.

The sunset was gorgeous tonight. I almost missed it!

Tomorrow I'll be back at Wilford Hall for more chemo--Rituxan--before my stem cell harvest on Wednesday. Not looking forward to any of that, but so it goes.

The light at the end of the tunnel is shining bright! We're almost there, I love you. See you tomorrow morning. ~Kelly

Hi! That was a beautiful sunset. I'm happy that you have had some rest. Keep looking up, I know you are! I love you!

Thank you Father for holding Sharon through this hard time.

Hugs, Sandi

I'm sorry I haven't been keeping up. I don't feel like I've been keeping up on my own life!
Your notes about the Mass remind that maybe I could live in SA... we are still wondering where we will retire. Houston is not my favorite place.
I miss you on FB.
my sacrifices for you today, Dear one.

Linda, I'm so grateful for your prayers and sacrifices. Please don't worry one bit about not checking in here; i know what a busy life you have. If you decide to retire in SA, know that you already have a friend here who loves you.

I miss FB sometimes; it was nice to be able to keep up with some family and friends. But after awhile I was too overwhelmed and decided it's not always best to know everything going on in people's lives.

Thank you Kalona!
Honestly, I'm looking for an older house (built between 1890 and 1940) on some land- at least an acre. If you see something, let me know! :)

I agree about fb. I appreciate being in contact with friends; I need to find a balance myself.

I'll be on the lookout, Linda. Sounds like the kind of place I'd love, too.
