Sorry about the delay in posting..... but things have been a bit crazy around here lately. Today I am celebrating the 7 year anniversary of my cancer surgery in Philadelphia, Pa. at Will's Eye Hospital. I have done so well following my surgery on October 2, 2003, and as a matter of fact, my oncologist is going to have me do one more CT Scan in December, and if it turns out good, I will be dismissed from his care. Isn't that wonderful? Woo hoo!!!
As a cancer survivor, I feel so blessed. Life is good and I enjoy each and every day to the fullest! I cherish my time with my family and I love my time spent with friends (both in my personal life and in blogland)!
An update on my sweet Mom. She found out the other day that her retina has detached again and she will require further surgery this Tuesday, October 5th at Duke. We hated to get that news, but we have faith in the doctor and are praying for a good outcome for her. Thanks for all your prayers these past few weeks for her. (Poor thing, this will be 2 surgeries in less than a month.)
I have been working in my house trying to get things back in order upstairs in all the bedrooms. It has been a lot of hard work, but we certainly love our new carpeting. It is so fresh and cushy-soft! I will post some pictures when I get everything finished and back in place. I am putting the finishing touches on the furniture that I am re-finishing. I think it is going to be real pretty! I am no expert, but I think it is turning out good.
Today has been a perfect fall day! My Mom and I started off going to some yard sales and I found some great treasures. I got some beautiful old linens, some milk glass and some Christmas things. Mom and I went to lunch together and for dessert we had a sweet potato turnover with butter pecan ice cream and toasted pecans. It was delicious and so "fallish"! Tonight my husband and I are going to dinner with 3 former neighbors of ours.
I have had a wonderful day celebrating my anniversary. The only thing that would have made it perfect would have been having my girls here, but hopefully I will see them real soon. Hope you all are having a great weekend and doing whatever makes you happy! I can't believe that it is already October! Christmas will be here before we know it. Take care.
Love & blessings,
