A Perfect Gift

It is WAY me.. and I can't believe how sweet she is to me
God has blessed her with gift of caring!!!
And He blessed me too sending her.

I love the book and the THOUGHT~~~~~
I'll be alone for the next couple of days..Rich is working out
of town..so this book can keep me good company. We might
even get rain tomorrow. We sure could use it.

What's new in your life?? are you making things?? Decorating??
I love to decorate with nature..so pick up acorns, pine cones..hope to
find some bittersweet.. and dry my hydrangeas.

I got two birdnests..Robins nested in my friends hanging basket
and she gave me TWO nests. I have some handmade eggs I am
going to put in them.

Feeling better each day as the steroids dose goes down
You are such a dear. I've been reading Hollyhock Days and find it enchanting.
I needed a pick me up and your gift did that.
It's cool on the deck and just nice to sit and read about gardens.

I am so blessed. Thank you Diane for always being kind and caring

fondly, your friend

Blue Bird Box

This is the photo I got just as the ladder collasped when I was
trying to see baby Blue Birds..
I landed on my back on top of the fallen ladder. No more
climbing for me now.

I'm doing well, the steroids are making me dry as sand
but they are helping the swelling.

I go for another MRI in a month to see if it worked on the
Pray it did.

and thank you ALL for being so supportive. It helps so much
to get sweet notes..cards..comments.

My Latest MRI

Text Color
I had an MRI last Monday..I got called yesterday to come consult with my

Doctor said this (we were there for 2 1/2 hours.) Rich was suppose to
work out of town, but he stayed here and took me to see my doctor.
Dr. Kloppenstein

I had 3 options. ( the tumors are the original set) only 3 of the five. I have had
3 different batches of tumors..over the last two years
They have gone thru gamma and whole brain but they ARE growing again.

My Options

Do nothing..just watch them and reduce brain swelling with steriods. Just putting off
further treatment that will be needed.

Treat again with Gamma Knife..could work..may not..but if it doesn't we are
back at option 3.

Brain surgery.. 3 separate areas of the brain..one is somewhat deep..
all will be drilled..cut out ..sewed up..then on to the next tumor
all done in one day.

in the hospital for 5?? days then home with steroids to reduce
brain swelling and hopefully off steroids in a matter of weeks.

I have another MRI tomorrow AM..it's called functional MRI
and Gamma Knife this coming Monday. All the doctors discussed
my case and they all agreed. we can try gamma again..but surgery
may be imminent.

I'll be glad to get this resolved. I'm tired of whining about it.
