Today is officially the first day of summer, but I am amazed at how fast the time is going. My daughter came home from college the first week of May and I can't believe that she has already completed her 6 week internship at a local children's hospital. Today she started her Nanny job for the rest of the summer.
Aren't my roses pretty? I took these pictures at night, so the roses would show up really well. I just love my roses and they have done so good this year. These are hybrid tea roses that I planted many, many years ago.
These blooms were huge!! And such a gorgeous shade of pink!
On Friday I had to go for my semi-annual CT Scan. I do not have the best veins in the world and I sometimes have a bit of a problem with my IV, but this time was the worst. To start off, it took the lab tech 3 tries to get my blood drawn. Then I went back for my CT Scan and the 2 ladies working the CT machine stuck me 8 times before they could get the IV to go in my veins. I was about ready to walk out and say, "forget it". I felt like a human pin cushion.
It was not the ladies fault, I just have terrible veins. Needless to say, despite all the headaches involved with getting my CT Scan, I got great results. The scan came back normal and there was no evidence of cancer.
My oncologist has told me that if I have another clear clan in December that he will release me and I will not have to have any more scans. Isn't that great? I was thrilled!!!
In the past 7 years since my cancer surgery, I have had more CT Scans than I care to count. The first 3 years I had them every 3 months, then I switched to every 4 months and now I go every 6 months.
I feel very fortunate to have gotten along so well with my cancer. God is good!!! Each day is a joy and I look forward to living it to the fullest each and every day. I enjoy life, my family and my friends (in real life and in the blog world) and count it a blessing to be alive! I have so enjoyed all your blogs and being able to form friendships via the internet. I consider it a privilege to laugh with you, cry with you and pray for you, as we all travel this road we call "LIFE".
So you see, life is good! I had a wonderful weekend with my husband, girls and my son-in-law. They are such an important part of my life and bring so much joy to me! I missed being with my parents and my sister, but I will see them over the 4th holiday.
I only had to work a half day today, so I am in the basement painting furniture. I can't wait to get it finished and set up in Adelaide's room. I am closing with my favorite verse...
I Thes. 5:16-18 Be joyful always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
Love & blessings,
