    ... that's much less appetizing on that scale.
    a little better.

    COOLEST THING EVER!!!!!

    Visit with honey went great, too short. I did send him into Costco for bacon and hot dogs, bless his heart.

    Still fighting that infection. Since it's viral, apparently it just has to run its course and may take another week. Sigh. I'm not sure I can physically drink any more fluids. Other than that things are going well. Should decrease the prednisone again tomorrow, yippee!!! Been a nurse for 25 years and always called it the drug that will save your life but make you wish you were dead......

    Oh, you are so right about the Prednisone! Ken has stage 3 Sarcoidosis...he's had it since the late 70s and has had several flare ups. When he does, it's back on the Prednisone. We had custody of our grandkids - 11 year old grandson Jamie and 6 year old Little Diane - and he had a flare up. About 3 weeks into that round of treatment I had to take him back up to the clinic for a recheck. Little Diane looked at me with her big, green eyes and said, 'Oh, Gramma...I hope they take him off the crabby pills." No kidding! So did I!

    Sounds like you had a pretty good weekend if you got bacon and hot dogs! I just wish that pesky virus would move on! You got welcome mat out there for it or something? Ashley is fighting some kind of virus too. She's now 3 weeks late with chemo - her numbers won't go up. ANC was 60, so they waited a week and rechecked. It's supposed to be above 750 for her to get chemo. At the recheck it was down to 20. Jenna said she never would have thought that she'd ever pray for the chance to put poison into her baby's body, but she's praying hard for it now - going 3 weeks without chemo is tough.

    Until I got to "know" you and this happened to Ash, the most I ever thought about viruses was how miserable they can make a person feel. I had no idea that they could have such a profoundly negative impact on other things that have to be done. Oh, I guess I did, but it never hit home this much before....first you run into additional difficulties because of those little boogers, then Ashley. You and Ash are kinda sharing the same prayer here. I refer to you both in those prayers as simply "the girls".
