I wish I had more exciting news to pass along.
Life is fantastic!
Someone anonymously gave Josh and I a weekend stay out in Zion. To them, I tip my hat. It was a wonderful weekend. We stayed at a brand new lodge. The Cable Mountain Lodge. I could have stayed there a week. It was gorgeous! We ate at the Bit 'n' Spur. A classic favorite. I used to work right across the street from the Bit (Switchback Grille) when I was in high school. It was a fun job and I made a few good bucks in my teenage years. I was the only underage server. Beats working at McD's.
The next morning we hiked the Narrows. 4 of my tween into teen years were spent living in Virgin so I have hiked Angel's Landing many many times. It is my favorite hike. But, no matter how many times I go to Zion, it never ceases to amaze me. I have always loved it more than the Grand Canyon. The world truly doesn't understand the outstanding beauty we have right at our back door. It makes me ashamed that I live so close and don't take advantage of it more often.
Thank you thank you. To the anonymous person(s) that put that together for us. We loved it!
I have started radiation. It is pretty easy. I am there only about 15 minutes and I have to lay still for about 2 minutes. I go early in the morning so I am back before my kids are off to school. Then I have the rest of my day clear. My skin is just starting to turn red and be a little sensitive. Pretty easy in comparison.
I have discovered chemo has killed my nearly perfect track record of teeth. I have only had one teeny tiny cavity my entire life. I didn't even have to have any anesthetics when they fixed it. The Dr.'s and experts all told me that it probably wouldn't stay perfect because of the chemo. Ha! I shook my head and told them they don't know my teeth. They have never let me down before. Well, I went to the dentist a couple of weeks ago and discovered I had 6 cavities!!! SIX! I wanted to cry. I feel like I should just tell the dentist (who happens to be Josh's dad) to yank them all out and start over. I was/am devastated. I fly out to Georgia in a week and he will fix them for me. I was telling Josh last night that I hate dentists. I don't hate Josh's dad, I just hate going to the dentist. I think I actually fear the dentist more than I do cancer. Pathetic. I know. I had so much work done on my mouth when I was teen (braces, imbedded wisdom teeth, uncut extracted permanent teeth, implants) that it was enough to scar me for life. I may or may not wet myself on the dental chair in fear.
Enough of that.
I wish I had more exciting info to pass along. I guess that is why I haven't posted in awhile. Not much of a dog and pony show going here.
At the risk of sounding redundant, thank you all again for everything you do!
