    Sorry I've been MIA. My sister came over to spell my Mom on Thursday, and we've been on the go the whole time. Her son hit a deer in her van, so she was shopping for a car. We drove all over the greater Portland area looking at cars. Let myself get a little too tired, unfortunately. Then my guys got here last night...yippee!!! Today we went to a massive iris garden for an open house type thing. I never knew there were so many colors of Iris! I was really pushing with the boys to be building flower beds this summer, I'm going to need somewhere to plant them.

    Technically I have 28 days left. My personal goal is 2 more weeks. By then I should be off the prednisone completely. I'm only being seen in the clinic once a week, I really can't imagine the doctors at home can't monitor me that close. And I can be back in Portland in like 4 hours if need be. We'll see how reasonable the docs are in a few weeks.

    You're so close Rachel! I know you can't wait to get home and the guys can't wait to have you there.

    I love Iris, that must have been a gorgeous garden!

    Hope your nephew is ok after the altercation with the deer.

    Now don't your worry your pretty little head about being MIA - we knew where you were and that you'd pop in from time to time JUST to admire MY hummingbird pictures! [​IMG] 28 days left? You are so close now I'll bet you can feel the breeze from the finish line tape waving in the wind!

    June 8th is your release date?
    Okay. we will plan a party.
    (Can you believe Blooie doesn't like chocolate? I'd be so thin.)
    More chocolate covered strawberries for the rest of us.
    Anyway, I am so very relieved and happy for you.

    Oh yes, a release party. Brilliant idea!

    We'll just have to work around Blooie's strange distaste for chocolate. Hmm, lobster quiche? Steak tartare? What do people eat for fun if it isn't chocolate?
