Gosh Darn It

Mom had a nice visit with Mike and Abby. They all went out to dinner at the Bear Republic (one of my favorite treats) and my friend Emily just happened to be there. She wrote on my wall (Facebook Thingy) right away saying that mom looked "AWESOME."

I know that mom's been pretty tired though. Also, the other night she commented on how cold she was, so I asked if she had a fever. She didn't know but said she'd check. Well apparently she did have a fever.

Today she was at the oncology center and they gave her chemo anyway (despite the fever last night). They also ordered a bunch of new tests (more ultrasounds, x-rays and CT Scans). So she'll be busy this week with medical tests. Please keep her lifted in prayer - She really does have a positive attitude and that's great. It's just frustrating for me to hear of more tests - this bites.


  1. Yes, sometimes it seems like a never ending battle. We beat one thing and then another pops up. A positive attitude, plus you have many many prayers, lots of support and love, a 'great army'!
    Barb you are always in our prayers, and your family too.

  2. The Bear Republic is one of my favorites also being from Healdsburg, good choice! Just heard of a drug Zofram and Emend to fight off nausea. Somehow it blocks the brain and tummy from communicating that aweful feeling. The fella fighting lung cancer says it helps him tremendously and he has an appetite for anything after chemo treatments. Chances are you already know of these helpful drugs. Thinking of you lots Barb...with love, admiration, and prayers!

  3. Dear Barb:
    KEEP THE FAITH!!!That is the best advice ever.
    Just stay in your HAPPY SPACE and your FAITH will follow you there with plenty of happy thoughts and
    lots and lots of prayers.
    We are always thinking and praying for you Barb.
    If you or Craig need anything, anything at all, please do not hesitate to call us.

    Love & Prayers,
    Janet & Paul
