Saturday Morning

I don't know what the heck they used in my hair for the ommaya surgery, but I suspect axle grease. I have washed and washed my hair, and it still won't come out. I am going to use Dawn dishwashing soap the next time--you know, the stuff they use on seagulls that get caught in an oil spill? Seriously, I think that's the only thing that might work.

Other than that minor frustration, things are going well. My doctor called yesterday and wanted me to go to the hospital for labs, to make sure that my platelets were okay over the weekend. Josh took me over there about 3 PM, after picking up Reece at school. The doc never called me to tell me to come back for a platelet transfusion, so I guess my platelets were okay. I feel okay, and have no bleeding or bruises. I have an appointment to see him on Monday.

On the way home from the hospital yesterday, we got rained on! It was so nice to smell the rain. It wasn't much, but it was so welcome. As we got out of the car Josh said that he should have gotten the umbrella for me, and I told him, "No, it feels good to feel the rain!" Maybe we'll have a nice rainy fall to fix this drought.

Reece and I slept in this morning. It felt so good to wake up with him snuggled next to me. He came in last night before 9 and said he wanted to take a nap. Of course the nap lasted all night long. He slept the clock around, plus some! Then Papa brought us doughnuts from Shipleys for Saturday breakfast. Yum! He had chocolate frosted and I had cinnamon sugar.

Not sure what the weekend holds. More rain, I hope!

Hope your weekend is going great!

Speaking of the drought, I sent Dad an email but not sure if you heard - Our air conditioner is broken - we have been sweltering since Friday night. I'm just happy the high temps aren't in the triple digits right now. Ice baths have new meaning to us now, heh! :)

I hope you are staying rested. Did you try the Dawn liquid soap and did it work on your hair? :)

Kel, I'm so sorry about your AC. Hope you have it fixed by now!

The Dawn helped, but there is still some of that icky stuff left in my hair, even though I washed it three times with the Dawn. It is better, though, and maybe it will all be gone the next time I shampoo. Hugs!

Got the AC fixed today - whoever invented air conditioning is my hero.

Hope you had a good weekend and are feeling okay.

Lots of love!

It's been a few days since you posted and I've been thinking of you. Hoping your port is healing up and your headache is getting better. Praying also for those counts to stay up. Anyway, just wanted to let you know I'm thinking of you and praying all the time for a good outcome. Cyber hugs sent your way.
