I was ready for what today was to bring and I got up early so I could relax. I had my suitcase packed, everything ready to take. It was pouring rain and I opened the garage door and stood there so my ride would pull into the garage driveway. She saw me and I loaded the car trying to stay dry. We got off about 10:30 and made it to the Cancer Center by 11:05 AM.
I went in with my laptop and waited for another person to finish and signed in at 11:14 AM. My friend came in and we talked while waiting and didn't get called till after 12 PM. When I walked back to the room I stopped and got some snacks and soda that they have before I got hooked up with the IV's. The nurse was standing waiting and said I was late and they couldn't do the chemo. Are you kidding me but she said it took 5 hours and it would run late. She said I was to be there between 7 & 9 o'clock and I told her my appointment was set for 11:30 AM but when I checked the paper in my medical folder it was 11:00. It didn't matter because I was there 11:05 AM they just didn't get me till after 12 PM. I was a little upset but tried to keep my cool.
1st the girl that took me didn't really have extra money for gas but was being kind to take me and I bowl with her during the winter league. We both got talked into being President and Vice President. 2nd it is not a cut finger it is cancer and can't be put off. 3rd I have been taking the medicine over the weekend too get ready for the chemo. 4th our time is just as valuable as anyone elses. Can you tell I am a little miffed and I am a calm person but someone really messed up and it wasn't me, I did what I was told to do.
So they wanted to change it too Tuesday and Wednesday but I didn't have anyone to drive me Wednesday. So I just cancelled and said do it next week on Monday and Tuesday. This week I have everything planned out for each day.
Monday will be 5 hours so I will be there at 9 AM and Tuesday it will take 1 hour and I will be there at 11:30 AM. this way I will be able to bowl on Tuesday night which makes me happy. When I come home Tuesday if I need rest I can get a few hours before I bowl.
When I came home I took care of the dogs and put everything back where it belonged like keys, remotes and such. I ate some potato salad because I am out of cottage cheese and laid down because I was totally exhausted mentally and physically. Long drives drain me and since we didn't have a lot of time between the travel time it was too much.
My daughter came to feed the dogs because I didn't call her because you can't when she is working so I got up and we talked and I told her I had to brush the pool so she did it for me. She is a good girl and will help me whenever I need her.
She went home and I made dinner and then started my Spark page. So today has had its surprises and not good ones.
Not a lot of exercise today but some so I am going to fill out my food and exercise, then back flush the pool and call it quits. Now all I did this weekend with washing sheets, clothes, cleaning the house, taking medicine has to be done this weekend again.
Plus have to cut grass if it stops raining. They are calling thunder storms everyday til the weekend. Oh well has to be done anyway but need to rest sometime.
All take care, God bless you and I will survive.
Catch you tomorrow with a funny smile.

Little one had to go home this evening but we made a good day for her. WE had breakfast and then showered and went to the bowling lanes as it was another sun, dark clouds, sun you get the drift. I didn't bowl because I want to save the free games I get for her. She did really, really good a 95,85,101 for a 281 series. When she left her winter league she had a 52 average but she is going to show them this next season. If she can get it straight down the center she gets strikes with an 8 pound ball. She had 3 strike in her last game. I think my free games will last till Sept 9th and she will go to school in August so each week she will bowl 4 to 6 of them. I am glad she is improving so well. We came home and the sun was shining so I told her to get in the pool until it either turn bad or her Mom was too come.
I made lunch and we ate outside and she got back in the pool for a half hour. She had to get a shower and wash her hair because a girlfriend was coming over to her house. We walked around the garden again and pulled some weeds and got the mail and then she had to get ready.
I straighten up the kitchen and then we played some games. Her Mom called and left a message she was on her way but showed up 2 hours later. We talked and her little friend came with my daughter, she had to pick her up, so that made her late.
It was 6:30 PM and I was hungry so I had to find something quick to eat. I had 1 steak sandwich slice left so cooked it with sharp cheese on a kiaser roll with lettuce, tomato and onion. I had my veggies and it was a small one. I ate my fruit salad with 5 fruits in it also.
So now I am finishing this and I am going to program my new phones so I have something to work if I need to call someone.
Have a great Saturday and have fun with family and friends. God be with everyone in all you do. Really love all of you and thank you for your well wishes and prays.
Catch you tomorrow and I will be watching races.

Today I rested in the morning but not long, little one was already up and had put her breakfast out for her. We where to go to lunch with my girlfriend but her children came. So we went outside for a while checking out everything and I was telling her what each plant was in the garden. We ate lunch later and got ready to go out.
We went to the store and bought her some shoes, socks and other items. Then went to the grocery store for onions, be glad when my have grown. Had to go to her home and pick up her bowling bag and then off to take the phone back to Sears. I bought another one and it uses regular batteries instead of those white ones. Then it is off to the bowling alley and she really bowled good. She bowled 49,70,and 109 a228 series and that was great. I pre-bowled for my Nascar league and bowled 181, 167, 201 for a 557 series, they will like that.
We came home and feed the dogs and I made some salads with tuna fish and she really likes that. She has been drawling and reading and just messing around. She wants to play cards so I am going to get done here so we can.
All take care and have a fabulous Friday. God bless everyone richly.
Catch you tomorrow if I am still moving.
