Hi everyone...with the help and generosity of Becky and "pilot girl" (Julie,) I'm back in Arizona getting things put together and organized for my drive back to Houston on Monday. I got a ton done since I got home at 2:00 PM (AZ time.) It's amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it. The house however, looks like a tornado hit it. The dining room has become my staging area.
I arrived without a hitch and Becky was even able to follow my MapQuest directions and got to the apartment again, without a hitch. That darn pilot is looking for the keys to the plane but I really hid them well!! We need to keep him grounded.
My moniker as "Garbage Girl" remains! Julie called around 6:00 and invited me over for dinner...LEFTOVERS!!! Now don't get me wrong, Julie and Becky are GREAT cooks and so their leftovers beat my cooking ANY day of the week. And since I had only had a cup of oatmeal, coffee, and 4 chocolate chip cookies (Vic...those are the ones you made when you visited...), I was starving and jumped at the chance. If you haven't guessed, I'm not a picky eater.
After dinner we "Skyped" Brenda and Becky via our computers. It was great seeing them and talking via our webcams. Ain't technology great? And Apple makes it sooo very easy!! Here's the report on our patient today. After I left around 9:30 Brenda walked over to the shopping center to get some exercise and to get some things at the store. The mornings still remain her best energy periods. She then took a nap waiting for Becky to arrive. When Becky did get there, they wandered over to the Italian restaurant to see if tomato sauce might be more magical food that B could stomach. They said the food was horrible, but they were both sooooo hungry they woofed it down. Apparently they were both reaching a "cucumber moment." That's a story I'll tell you some time...think starving!
So Brenda...I wanted you to have a special message from me and our home. I love you with all my heart. I'll be back soon. You're in great hands and I think you and Becky will enjoy the time together...especially since you actually didn't fall asleep during the evening movie you watched. I'll have to ask Becky what her secret is.
Sleep tight and have sweet dreams of tumor shrinkage and cure.
