Up Dates....

  Showing my daughters backdoor plants.   She changes colors every year.
  I love petunias, of any color.  They are not heavy with fragrance but I can smell them as I sit on the steps.
  Ted's been mowing wearing a special mask, and trying to keep the lawn in shape.  It is looking better. Ted had three days of chemo this week.  Today was the 3rd day. Tomorrow we go to the IBMT clinic and see the bone marrow drs.  Ted is hoping they will say no more chemo. Of course it depends on the reading of his "Who's Who"  to see how much of his bone marrow is donor. Last time it was 98. 3 % ,which is very good.
   My sister Jeanie is home and feeling better. Although her feet did swell a bit. Her thigh is bruised badly from the heart dr placing a catheter into her groin area to put a stent in her heart. .I went to see her , wore my mask , stayed 6ft apart.  She has a long road ahead of her. Getting used to meds and changing meds, as they do at times. She will see the heart dr again in a month.  I want to thank all of you for all your kind words, wishes and prayers. You are the best.  Stay safe. XO

  1. Those flowers look lovely! I am amazed that Ted feels well enough to mow the lawn after chemo! I could barely lift my head! Glad to hear that your sister is recovering well. Hope she continues to do well. Hope you, too, keep safe and stay well. Take care.

    1. Thank you for the good wishes. Ted's chemo is a maintenance chemo, not as strong or long as some of the doses he has had. Ted uses a riding mower too. After today he will wiped out. Just when he really starts feel good it seems to be time for more chemo. Praying for some good news soon. Stay safe there. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  4. Thanks for the updates. The yard does look good. I think the % of donor marrow sounds good. I do hope and pray for the best.
    I smiled at the flowers, they were one my mother in law's favorite flower.

    1. Hi everyone, Thank you for your prayers. Ted has a thing about mowing, he loves doing it. That leaves me the weed whacking, which I am not crazy about but I will do it. Stay safe on the road, Blessings, xoxo, Susie

    1. Thank you Jenn. No more chemo would be awesome. I know Ted is longing for that. He just gets to feeling good and it's time for chemo, which takes his energy . It will work on him next week. My sister is going to get better a day at a time, hopefully. Blessings to you and yours, xoxo, Susie

  13. I like to hear your updates, the lawn looks really good! Why is it the petunias don't smell like they did before. And yes, I can smell, but I think you have to have the really old-fashioned variety to get the smell. Keep well, and get well wishes for your sis.
