Thank you!

Unfortunately, the sale of the contents did not go as well. Part of it was a low turnout and the weather; the auction company had most of the stuff outdoors, and the weather was cold, windy, and rainy; not the kind of weather where people want to linger outside and browse.

But most of the leftover things will either be donated to the local domestic violence shelter (either for the residents in the shelter, or to sell in their resale shop), or will be sold in a yard sale that my friend Penny will have later this summer.

As sad as it is to close that chapter in your life, I am glad that the house sold so quickly. Hope the rest of the sale went well. HUGS!

Marsha, glad to hear your DH is home now, prayers for speedy recovery!

We had the burial for my mom's ashes on Thursday; we could not do it at the time we had her funeral in November because of the weather. It was short service at the cemetery, but very beautiful and meaningful.

Today is the auction for my parent's house and the contents. My dear friend Penny who is also the executor of the estate is out there this morning; she called me about 20 minutes after the auction started to tell me the house sold right away, which is great news! I think it will be another 2 hours yet before the auction for the household goods is finished.

I still need to finish the deadheading of my roses. It has been so hot that I haven't finished. Went grocery shopping this morning and got the stuff to make chili tonight for supper. I even made enough to put some in the freezer. Now the problem is to find a spot in the freezer for it. My freezer is a small one and nearly have it full.

The children bought me roses to plant in the flowerbed so I do not have any hanging pots but may still buy one for the front yard.

Penny is here again helping me, this time with some stuff outside; she potted a caladium and some wave petunias I got today, and now she's doing some weeding. Earlier today I got a couple of hanging baskets for my porch from Lowes. I usually get my hanging baskets earlier in the month, but I put it off because we were still getting frost overnight last week.

Memorial Day services were very nice. The band has a fundraiser for the next band trip and we saw lots of friends today. I just finished cleaning out a chicken barn for DH. Hope he likes what he sees when he gets home.

Glad to be back.
Went to his momma's tonight for supper. She had hamburgers and hotdogs. It was such a pretty day today. I took a walk this afternoon. My aunt came in from her river house and so I went down there for a little while. Nothing much going on here.

Welcome back Lottie!

Marsha, I'm so sorry your MIL lost her house; I'll keep her in my prayers.

My friend Penny has been helping me out this weekend; Saturday she started painting my shed for me; however, it's been raining off and on since Sunday so now we have to wait for a dry day so she can finish it up. She came over today and did some cleaning inside the house for me.

Sorry I haven't been on for a while. Sounds like life got in the way of quite a few people. Just started back to walking this morning. Made it 1 lap around the yard where I used to could do 3. Am going to have to build myself up to that again. I have gained so much weight back and it is starting to produce some health problems.

Hope you get good results.

A Mother's Day tornado devastated DH's hometown and we had other clients who lost everything but clean up is proceeding. MIL lost her house and most of her belongings but will rebuild a new home. DS2 go married that Friday so life has been a bit hectic.

Thank you Marsha!

I'm thinking of you all, and you are in my prayers.

I haven't been as active on Spark as I usually am in recent weeks because of issues with fatigue; however, I had a blood transfusion a week ago, and I am feeling better.

Just had CT scans done this morning, to check on the cancer that is in the lungs and liver, now I am trying not to be anxious as I wait for the results.

Welcome back Lottie!

I just noticed today that this thread was active again.

We had a nice weekend, sunny and in the 60's, but today has been rainy, windy, and only in the 50's.

I'm still having problems with the anemia from my bone marrow suppression, the worst part of it is the fatigue that goes along with it. For right now, my doctors are keeping a close eye on my hemoglobin level; I've been having to get blood transfusions every 3 weeks, but so far, I've made it to the 4 week mark since my last one. Right now, I have to get my blood counts checked twice per week, at least through the end of next month.

Court hearing did not go as expected. Judge needed to appoint
attorneys for GS and GF. She certainly has enough people working
with her to have had that done a week ago. Still wants to transfer
everything to Sioux Falls and I am not about to let that happen.

Sorry I have been gone for so long. Hubby was in a really bad car wreck the first week of February and I had to look after him. I'll tell you the details later. He has just gotten to where he is more independent now and I can do things that need to be taken care of. He even drove himself to Fantastic Sam's to get a haircut. My Fibromyaigia has acted up all week and I didn't feel like doing anything.

I'm glad to hear the PT is helping!

My chemo had to be put off for a couple of days because my hemoglobin was too low on Tuesday. I had a blood transfusion yesterday, and it really made me feel so much better. I had the chemo this afternoon. So far, I am doing ok with it, just kind of sleepy from the nausea meds they gave me.

I hope as you get further into the PT, it gets easier and doesn't hurt so much! It sounds like you have some good friends, true friends love us know matter what we are going through!

I am getting some x-rays of my hip today, and this afternoon, I am starting the new chemo.

Am also doing physical therapy now. On some days I feel so sore but they also know how to correctly massage out the tightness. I can still feel it the next day but not as bad as it could be. Have also been manic. I am surprised that Anybody could put up with me. I still have them as friends though as they know what I am going through.

We had frost last night, I was glad to see it as it kills off the pollen.

I'm glad you are feeling better on the Lyrica!

Good luck on the chemo.

My allergy doctor said that after the first frost, I could take my Zyrtec as needed.

Went to the rheumatologist Tuesday and found out that I had never had arthritis but do have Fibromyalgia. She put me on Lyrica and now I am feeling like a new person. I am in no pain.

That sounds like something I would enjoy if I were still able to garden; it's nice to be able to learn those things "in person" vs. just reading a book or information on the internet.

I found out I will be starting my chemo on the 21st of this month. I go to the cancer center for a "teaching" appointment Monday.

Went to a workshop about planting trees and tree problems today in Greenville. It only lasted 5 hours but learned a lot of new techniques. I enjoy going to things like that. It is productive and I don't waste my time.

Thank you Lottie! I called her this morning and she had a good night. She is also going to be getting some home health care, she'll have her first visit with them today.

Our Kmart closed earlier this year. I felt bad for a lot of the people that worked there, a lot of them had worked there for 20 years or more.

That is great news. Hope she does well at home. Just heard today that the K-Mart in out town is closing. I really enjoyed going there. Now I will have to go to another town and county to get to one. Not in as much pain today as I was yesterday.

Went to the fairground to pick up my stuff. They already had the booth torn down when I got there. Picking up my stuff was all I had to do. Felt a little better after a snack. I know that I will crash later on but am going to put this little bit of energy to work.

My mom is still in the hospital, but making progress for the most part. Her doctor hasn't been to see her yet this morning, so I don't know yet when she might be going home. I doubt that it will be today though.

They have had her up walking with her walker a few times, and she is doing well with that.

Went to church this morning. Still tired all of the time and little energy to do anything. Going to the dietitian on Wednesday morning. Maybe they can point me in the right direction.

It's been a pretty eventful 24 hours here; we had to take my mom to the ER, and they admitted her to the hospital with a cellulitis infection. They have her on some pretty strong antibiotics, and she really made some improvement overnight. Her doctor is confident she will have a complete recovery, but she'll be in the hospital til Monday or Tuesday.

I'm having issues with fatigue again, but I'm trying to work around it.
One change I am making is visiting Spark in the morning, instead of the the late afternoon, when I am the most tired.

That is pretty much our weather here too; doing a lot better with the pain issues today with the sunshine and warmer temps!

I'm having some pain issues today with the damp and chilly weather, but it's tolerable; at least no headache today. Thankfully, I haven't had to go anywhere today; I was only out long enough to get the mail.

I had a pretty productive day yesterday, but today I was fighting a sinus headache most of the day, ended up taking a 2 hour nap, and I am usually not a nap-taker. I am feeling somewhat better now though.

Thank you Marsha!
I'm still waiting to find out when I start, but I'm in no hurry. Now that I've been off my previous cancer meds for a few days, I am feeling better, and not so tired. I think maybe my blood counts are improving. It would be nice to feel a bit stronger before I have to start the chemo.

Helen, that is sad when people steal from places like Goodwill; to me, that is the same as stealing from a regular retail store.

Goodwill truck comes next week and I have several bags and boxes ready now but since DS is coming home this weekend, I expect I will have at least 6 bags. Time to get rid of all the extras.

Getting ready to take the last 7 bags of clothes to the Salvation Army. I can't believe I had so much stuff. And the sad part was the fact that I didn't wear over half of them and the other thing that is sad was the fact that I didn't even know why I bought alot of that stuff. The Salvation Army is going to really love me this year.

Just got back good from taking a load (5 big bags) of clothes to the Salvation Army. I had go to the drug store and to get my allergy shot as well. I haven't even got started good on going through my clothes. I am sure they will get a lot more. Nothing major planned for the rest of the day.

Hello;

I'm sorry about neglecting to check in again; I've had some issues with fatigue again so I've been low on energy, but that is starting to get better now.

My cancer treatment will be changing again; I had been on an oral treatment for about 8 months, but it's no longer working, so now my doctor is putting me back on IV chemo, a drug called Halaven. I was told about it yesterday. Now I am just waiting for a call from the cancer center to find out when I will be starting, but I'm in no hurry. Going to make the best of each day til then, and once I start, it will be one day at a time.

Went to the extension agency this morning to run off the handouts for tomorrows talk on Fall Planting. Went back this afternoon and helped pot up some things for the fair booth. I am doing a talk in November for the Master Gardeners meeting on grafting. Am really excited about both the fair and the talk.

Sorry I have been off for so long. Had the flu in January and now my back has gone out in February. It is still a lot of pain and I start a new job in March and don't have time to be hurting in my back. Keep me in your prayers. Thanks.
