Monday Chatter

That's Kelly and Reece doing some Christmas decorating. Kelly came over yesterday (Sunday) to finish decorating the tree. It looks pretty. The little girls "helped." :o)

We had a good weekend. I came home from the hospital on passes both days, and I'm home again today. It's been such a blessing to be able to leave the hospital every day; it keeps my spirits up. I'm fortunate that we live pretty close, so there's no problem going back and forth.

I'm still doing very well, but I have the beginnings of mucositis in my mouth. I've been gargling and swishing with saline solution, and if it gets bad they can give me pain medications. So far it hasn't interfered with eating or drinking, but my tongue feels swollen.

It's cold and rainy today. I'm happy for the rain, but I don't like the cold. Lately I have been cold when everyone around me is hot.

We are trying to find a Leap Pad for Reece for Christmas, and no one seems to have them (except the places that want $200 or more for them). He loves playing games on my Kindle. I downloaded some free kids books for him, and a bubble game Johnnie likes. He's used it more than I have. :o)

Hope you're all having a good Monday. I'm going to take a nap.

Hi! I hope that the mucositis goes away soon - that sounds awful.

I had fun decorating your tree yesterday. I hope the girls haven't pulled all the ornaments off! :) I know the decorations are irresistible to them and it's so hard for them to "look but don't touch" at that age.

I'm glad you are home again today!! I just finished praying St. Andrew's Novena for you. :)

Thanks, honey. I hope it goes away soon, too. It is awful.

The girls haven't messed with the tree much. They are "gated" in the family room most of the time. Cammie did pull off a couple of angels.

And thank you for praying the novena for me. I love you!

Hi from Mom and Mom. We went to eat and now she's watching an old Christmas movie with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye. I hear her laughing. : ) Praying for you every day! We love you - Keep up the fight! Hugs and Big Love, Sandi and Mom.
