Future plans

Posted Oct 21 2008 12:56am
I took my mother and Doug with me Monday evening to visit a cemetary to make my future plans.... for about 60 years from now. I didn't realize how much goes into a funeral and burial. I decided I wanted to plan ahead, so that these decisions aren't left for my family, who would have to do all this while grieving. I also decided, I want to make sure I get what I want so I better plan it. I am glad I went, and I found a spot that I really like, under a tree, a quiet, peaceful spot. I have to find out availability and who wants to be with me, but I think I will proceed with this. Have you all given any thought to what you want to do or where you want to be? I think it is actually a good thing to do ahead of time, even though we don't all think about it. Anyway, enough of that talk.

My labs for today and chemo for monday were cancelled until we figure out what is going on and what the plan is. I haven't heard from my oncologist, I will try to get ahold of him tomorrow if I haven't heard from him. I know he just got back in town and probably has a large stack on his desk. I will give him a little time, but not too much, I don't want to wait too long. I gotta keep pestering them, I don't want them to forget about me, hehe.

What else was I going to tell you? I went and got my nails done on Monday, I ended up getting fake nails put on, which I haven't had in years. It was fun, and I love looking at my nice, neat nails all the time. My nail polish was called "My Chihuahua Bites" that made my decision right there.

Oh, Ella poopied in the potty yesterday. I think she wasn't sure if that was okay, she immediately got off and looked at it and said "Uh Oh" several times. Then she sat down and did it again, got back up and didn't want to sit back down to pee pee on it so she pee'd all over the floor and down her legs. It was funny and messy! But I was so proud of her, I kept singing, ella peepeed in the potty, do do do do do do. (imagine a cha cha rhythm). I think this is all the news for now. I am just laying low this week and waiting for more answers to come.

I wanted to let you all know, The Jennifer Ireland Foundation is having a Golf Tournament on September 22nd in Blue Springs. This is a great cause, for those of you who don't know, the proceeds go to young cancer patients, to help them with extra unexpected expenses while they are fighting there cancer. I was privileged to be the first recipient from this great foundation. Please help support them!

I will let you all know when I know more about my treatment plans. Stay cool! Shawndra
