On November 2nd we will be celebrating our 50th anniversary. These days that is quite an accomplishment. We have made plans to spend it in Las Vegas without all the hoopla as we have endured so much emotional scarring from some family members and those scars may fade one day but they are still very strong at the moment. Remember to choose your words wisely, because once you say it, you can't take it back and you can't take away the hurt that you caused . We have rented a car and in the daytime we will be going to see some sights outside of Vegas.....and in the evenings take in some shows. We got a great deal on the flights from over the border in Bellingham and we don't stay at any of the hotel casinos but prefer a more relaxing time at the Desert Rose Resort. http://www.shellhospitality.com/Desert-Rose-Resort
The last 5 years have been an emotional and physical roller coaster. Some of the physical scars we hope will fade with time and hopefully some of the pain I endure daily will subside when I stop my medication the end of the year. I still have to deal with a few more test, I have just had my blood work done for my next CT scan for the spots on my lungs which I hope to have done next month. More blood work in November and then if everything is clear I will see my oncologist for the last time in December. January though brings that dreaded mammogram at the hospital.
The other week we spent 5 days at Ocean Shores on the Washington Coast and the weather was beautiful as was the sunsets on the beach.
