Happy Spring! I can hardly believe it has finally arrived!
Well, I went in for my shot today, lab late this afternoon and then I am done with these shots for this week…Oncologists appointment on the 23rd…but I spoke with her this morning about the fluid in my stomach…ascites…and that I have a paracentesis scheduled for Wednesday, and showed her my stomach….that has gone down considerably! I asked her if this was normal, she said yes that many times that will happen! Asked me to wait until tomorrow then decide to cancel the procedure if I need to. I feel like I may, but will follow her advice. I told her I don’t want to waste resources, and she understood.
Feeling good actually, I just have one more shot on the 27th and labs on the 3rd of April then chemo on the 4th and 5th.
I am certain another schedule will be made up for me for the remainder of the month of April.
On another note
This morning I planted two rose bushes. Pictures below
This one is called Bride’s Pink and I planted white Bacopa, they will spead and trail.
This one is Pink Peace and I planted lavender Bacopa around it…again it will spread and trail.
They are both out in front and are doing great so far.
I like to plant something on the first day of Spring every year, a tradition with me.
Below are close up’s of each rose.
A friend of mine lost her daughter a couple of years ago, and she told me pink roses where her daughter’s favorites. I told her when I plant them and as I care for them I will keep her daughter in my thoughts.
Both of these are hybrid tea roses, I was coming home from my shot on Saturday and seen them on display at Ace! Stopped in and got a price and took them both home.
I picked up the whiskey barrels…not of wood composition…at Lowe’s along with the Bacopa plants.
Enjoy the first day of Spring!
