Note to the Readers

I’m taking a week off; I’m doing house renovations, moving a door in a room from  one end of the wall to another and all the electrical that goes with it. Then I have a built in cabinet and storage to renovate and the electrical lighting inside it. We’re having an addition put on; that I am NOT doing. But there is painting and hardwood flooring to go down.

All this comes behind the work I do. See you in a week. (I hope)

Note to my readers

If I get back from the hospital early enough, I’ll try to post more today. Tomorrow is more of the same, I’m going back for more tests. These will determine how much more chemo I’m going to endure.

Prognosis so far is good, I’m kicking the big C’s ass. But it does take a toll. Thanks for staying with me.

Note to my readers

The postings will be short on 3/15. I’m going to the hospital and will be admitted for at least one day. Posting will resume when I get back and as soon as I can get in front of the computer. All this came from a call from the VA concerning the CT scan I had today.
