Football Fun!

Dr. Pond is now in business! That's right, Brian is proficient at administering shots, among many other things. I proceeded with my 2nd round of chemo on Friday, and then we had to chase it with a Neulasta (white blood cell boosting) shot on Saturday. We were both a little white-knuckled throughout the whole thing, but he's a regular pro at the medical services these days. He can strip drains, remove pain pumps, and now administer shots. The Neulasta shot was supposedly going to be hard on my bones and joints, but it hasn't been bad, at all. We went right along with our plans on Saturday, and it was a wonderful fall day!

Here we are at the football field. Brian was meeting up with some guys to play. I was along to watch and to corral Gladys.




And, here's Gladys. She's grown to a whopping 55 lbs! Now, that's a big puppy!
Following the game, I went to a bridal shower and out to eat. Then, we had a full day of church and Sunday school lunch yesterday. Today, I went back to work. Then, we had a busy evening of computer shopping (yes, I broke our laptop. yes, Brian bought me a new one the very next day.) and dinner out with some friends. I say all of that to say that I'm doing well. I'm tired, but I'm happy. I'm just so blessed to be able to do many of my normal things.

That is so wonderful!

I am so glad that you are doing well through this. I know that back surgery is not the same thing as what you are going through, but I really do know what you mean about being happy to do so many "normal" things. I was not able to do "normal" things for so long myself, and it was such a blessing the first time that I was able to make dinner for my husband and do the laundry again. Being sick really makes you appreciate the small joys that life is full of, but sometimes we take them for granted.

You and your husband inspire me.

And please let me say, your "puppy" is just adorable. :)

God Bless,
Amy:)
