Hi Everyone!

It is a beautiful morning here in AZ. We finally had some rain, so it cooled off a bit. So many of you have been asking me questions, I just thought I would take a moment for my regular readers.
1. We taped the flap opening open of the doggie door per Google. This seems to have worked and Bentley uses the door like a pro. We supposedly are to gradually lower the flap for him to get use to the sound and feel.
2. No one knew about my leg marks. I am going to take the picture to my doctor tomorrow and see what he says. I have had the marks off and on for months, so it has nothing to do with the dog. Again, it is not a rash nor a scratch. My guess? Damaged capillaries from the chemo...but we will see.
3. I see my oncologist tomorrow morning. No more living in limbo...I will definately know what treatment will be used. For those who pray for me, please bump it up! I am just dreading going back on chemo.
4. Some of you have noticed I haven't been blogging or visiting as much as usual. Here is the reason. We are trying to get some bigger type cleaning/organizing done before chemo starts. Yesterday I spent the morning washing all those 2 white shirts, 1 red shirt...you know the drill. I want to have as much done so my dear hubby doesn't have to deal with it. So, it isn't like I have fallen off the earth...at least not yet! Plus, it is hot and frankly, I haven't done much tweaking or stuff for like show and tell. I know some of you have said the same thing.
I will definately let you all know what is going on. I hate my blog to be about treatments and stuff, but unfortunately, right now...that is what it is. Thanks for understanding.

Ceekay, I am thinking of and praying for you. I know this is again a hard time for you. You are very brave to face this the way you do, I admire you very much. If I can be of any help in any way, please let me know. I am really good at cleaning, and I would be glad to help. Hugs, Marty

I will definitely bump up my prayers for you and will keep you in my thoughts tomorrow as you go to your Dr. appointment.

Hi Ceekay.
The marks on your legs - do you have a dog? My dog "paws" at me when I don't get out of bed fast enough for her, and about an hour later, I have those marks on my arm. Any chance? Just a thought.
Prayers are plentiful for you and your family. Please keep us posted as to the results of your Dr. appt and to your progress. Even if it is just a "I feel like s__t" post. Boy do I know what you are going through.
Lots of big, big hugs! Karen

You'll be in my thoughts and prayers. I'm amazed at how straight on your approach this challenge and am awed by your courage. You go get 'em girl.

Thanks for the update, Ceekay. Yes, I'm bumping up the prayers! Let us know what the dr.says tomorrow.

God Bless,

Ceekay: I prayed for you as I read your lovely blog! May wisdom come to these doctors and healing come forth over you!

A Hint of Home said...

Praying for the doctors to have wisdom in picking your treatment. You know we pray for you on a regular basis and love you.

Rebecca Nelson said...

Dear Ceekay...

Oh girlfriend. I will be praying extra hard for God's peace to flower over you and for the doctor's wisdom to comfort you. Remember...we are thinking of you and praying for healing and renewed strength.

Those MARKS seem strange. I'm immune depressed so who knows what causes the things that come up on my own body. Usually mine problems fade away as strangely as they come. Pray yours will as well.

Love to you~

Hi Ceekay,
Wishing you well as you go to your doctor appointment today. My daughter said it could be a regular side effect of medication. That's a good idea to take the picture in.

I think this is the part of summer where a lot of people slow down a bit. Fall will be here before we know it and then pumpkin pie and fall festivals and fun tablescapes!!!

Thinking of you and praying hard! I know we have just "met" through blogging, but I care about you and wish you the very best.

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Ceekay, you let us know what is going on, and we will pray.

I am going to be breaking off on on for this next month, beginning on Saturday. I've got to travel. But I will check back.

If you get a chance, do something fun and enter my blog drawing. If you win, I'll send you something fun. If you don't win, I might still do it, Ceekay! ;-)

Love to you...


Sheila :-)
