Home Again Home Again Jiggity Jig

Mom was sent home today! She is happy to be home and wearing her new comfy sweatsuit (NY& Co for the fashionistas). Dad is happy to have her home as well, he's so happy in fact he took a picture of her talking to me on the phone.

While everything is looking up - she still gets a little worn down from all the talking and pain medicine. Also, I think this is a side effect of the chemo, but her voice gets raspy.

Anyway, we just wanted to let you all know she's home and feeling good. She will go in for labs 10 days from yesterday (standard after the chemo). And then just before her next chemo she will go in for a CT Scan to make sure that the tumors are in fact shrinking. Aunt Kathy leaves early Friday morning and Aunt Molly will be here to tend to mom's needs. She's not ready for a bunch of visitors yet - and she has to be super careful to stay healthy. Thanks to everyone who's asked to be added to the list, Mom and Dad will probably be ready for some meals in the next week. As soon as mom is up for it...I'll have to show her how to POST to the BLOG so you can get updates from her.
That's all for now though!


  1. Woo-Hoo and Hooray for you!!!

    Welcome home, and keep up the great progress. Shall we all drop off some bags full of Kozy Shack Tapioca? No, wait, you might get tired of it after all.

    So--prayers and best wishes continue, and we'll wait for our "list" of duties!

    Love and Best,


  2. God is listening -

    We have been praying for you to get well enough to be released from that 5***** "Hotel". Three cheers for God. Prayer surely does work.

    Continued speedy recovery, am looking forward to see you back on your feet again.

    Love Angela and Bob

  4. Hi Barb!

    So glad you got to go home! You look so great in your picture lounging on the couch it's hard to believe you just got out of the hospital!

    I have some more Jane Austen movies if you want want some more. Let me know if you want me to drop them by. And I'd love to see your face, if only for a minute! (I could bring some chocolate too!) Love, Juliana

  5. Welcome home Aunt Barb!! Thanks be to God for the answered prayers.
