Life certainly has a way of slipping away.  I've not posted since June.  In the words of Poppy Wyatt (character in a book I'm reading and enjoying) "Crikey Moses!"

Lost another friend to cancer.  Wish more forms of cancer research got as much attention as breast cancer gets.  Sorry sore spot for me right now. 

Movie Night

Instead of watching reruns on TV last night, I opted to watch a movie.  I rented the movie "Lincoln Lawyer".  The clerk at the video store said it was an employee pick and really good.  "Yeah, right," I thought, "They always say that about movies."  Imagine my shock when yeah it was a really good movie.  Naturally, Mr McConaughey made it interesting to start with but I really enjoyed it as did my mom and friend who watched it along with me. 

If you get the chance to check it out, do so.  You won't regret it.

Well we got some really good news.  Dr. Kim saw now "shadows" on the P.E.T. scan.  He wanted to schedule a follow up appointment in 6-months but Mr. Bill argued for a 3-month appt just to be safe.  SWEEEEET!

Here's the latest and greatest!

Well treatment five is a thing of the past and we're still hanging in there.

Here's a few facts that I found out and thought were interesting (full article can be found at Yahoo):

5 Things you Didn't know about Chocolate

1.) It can boost your workout.
2.) Your period doesn't make you crave it.
3.) It won't wake you up.
4.) It contains flavonoids.
5.) It's not all that bad for your teeth.

Well we had our 4th chemo treatment today.  Dr said the acne-like breakouts my friend has been experiencing is a good sign.  It means the chemo-meds are working. 

3rd Cancer Treatment

We had our 3rd chemo treatment today.  Benadryl still making my friend hyper.  The doctors / nurses have cut back on the amount they give but it still makes them want to run a marathon.  Hopefully, the docs and nurses can figure something out.  They'll sleep most of the evening tonight.

I found a new livejournal layout I would like to use but I can't figure out on to get my account set up to use it.  Technology can be so blasted frustrating.

I can't believe it's been so long.  Friend's cancer has spread from his jaw into both lungs.  So much for the doctor assuring us the jaw surgery "got it all".  Left lung had a chunk removed in November.  Learned it spread to the right lung in December.  Has had 2 chemo treatments so far.  We're keeping our fingers crossed he doesn't need radiation after the chemo is completed.

I can't believe it's been so long since I posted anything here.  A lot has been going on in my life since I posted last.  My friend is almost finished with their radiation and chemo treatments from their cancer surgery.  We've had 3 new additions to the family (1 in April; twins (b/g) in October).  New position at work.  Changes every where you turn!

I've discovered audiobooks.  I love listening to them while driving in the car to appointments and meeting for work.  No more "seeking" for radio stations.  So far this year I've listened to:

Nathanial Hawthorne - The Scarlet Letter
F. Scott Fitzgerald - The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons
Patrick Redden - Fallout
Oscar Wilde - The Canterville Ghost
William Irving - The Spectre Bridegroom
E. Nesbit - Five Children and It

I've listed reviews of these six books as well as for other paperback / hardback books I've read so far this year at goodreads.com.
