Nancy Bush/ shortshot0 Hi Colleen and Teresa) Howdy ladies, I'm finally back. It has been a while. I had immune therapy in March, April, May, and then went through a tough time with pain in all my joints. Doc told me that sometimes the immune therapy will do that, so have been on Prednisone off and on for several months. I have been trying to cut it down, then I start the pain again. Am on some sort of a merry go round for several months. . For the past couple of years that I've been going to the doc, they have put on a Christmas buffett with all kinds fo cold cuts, cheese's, crackers, hot chicken wings of two or three flavors, veggies, cookies, candy, punch, some "booze" if you want, just a great spread for patients and family. Very nice and much appreciated. Everyone had a great time visiting. Saw my doctor before lunch and my cat scan show no new growth, which is a good thing, and am trying again to cut the Prednisone down, however much slower this time. So it will work, just going to take some more time. I am feeling good, looking good and gaining more strength each week. I still do all my own clothes washing, folding etc, dishes and as much other things that I can get done daily. Have been working on my book, hopefully some time soon I can get it to the printers. I did have some news the other day. July I will be a "great great grandma! Wow, doesn't seem possible that could be, but I will spoil what ever kind I get! Doesn't seem possible that it has been seven months since my hubby died. Yes it does get lonely at times but it is better that it was. I have purchased my Christmas present which will be installed tomorrow. I have a new carpet for the living room. I am excited to have It installed tomorrow. It has been over 22 years since the last one. Something new always makes you feel great and also cheers up the home. I will be seeing the doctor again in about three weeks, then will see what the plan is going to be for me. Ladies, I'm so glad to be back here and join the conversation's, seems like forever since I was in here. Thank you Colleen for all the help, information to be back.
We have been having some wild storms here on the coast of Oregon, 60 mph winds, and lots of rain. Supposed to keep us wet for the next week or so. Have a great day everybody, I will be back in here soon. Nancy
