One Proud Grammy

Hello everyone,
         It has been almost 7 months since my last radiation treatment... I do feel very well... All my checkups are coming back okay, but the determining factor is when I get a CAT scan on December 6 that will make sure I have no other issues..... Also went to see my thyroid Dr. and he is very well pleased that my thyroid nodules are actually shrinking.... He was almost positive I was going to need an operation but as of now he said they shrank considerably that nothing would have to be done.....

       This  summer actually flew, but here is one of the best highlights that I will remember for a long time, my granddaughter Gabrielle got to sing the national anthem at the Reading Phillies...  She was so nervous singing in front of all them people but I am so proud of her.  She did wonderful !

                 As far as rug hooking goes I've have  not be doing much but I intend to start up again.    I intend to dust off  my cutter and cranking it up.  .  There are so many projects that I would like to get finished.  So the winter coming.  This is a great time to pick up a hook and get busy.
.  I hope to be blogging more in the future and keep your posted on what I am working on ....

                    HAVE A GREAT DAY !!!

Loving life!

Hello  everybody .... Waking up this morning to such beautiful weather here in Pennsylvania is bringing on the spring fever. This weather really makes me wonder what Punxsutawney Phil was talking about six more weeks of winter. I do not think so, or let us say, I hope not!. I bet Joanne already has her flip-flops out and is wearing them. I am sure it is a possibility we could get snow later in March or April, but that snow never lasts long. 

Friday is my last day of radiation treatment ....... with no real serious side effects...... weather cooperated, never missed a day of treatment and my sister Margie was there to drive me every day.I explained to her that it was not necessary for her to come with me that I could drive myself but she insisted she wanted to be there for the support.   She was so afraid that I was going to get too tired that I could not drive myself home, because that is one of the side effects .   I could not have asked for a better support system..  I am praying that the radiation did the job, but I will have to wait a few more weeks and get tested again to make sure. 

I am enjoying reading all the blogs and seeing what everybody is getting accomplished.  Wish I could say I got more accomplish but I really have not been doing any crafts , but hope soon to be picking up my rug hooking again .

  Last Saturday night was such  fun being with my grandchildren,   they came down to the house for about four hours.  .  My sister Wendy was also there so we declared it to be karaoke night,  my grandchildren absolutely love to perform and I enjoy watching them   ..  Next time I will videotape some of them singing and post a small video ....  Nothing too much to make it boring.   Spending time with my family is the best medicine in the world .

  I hope everyone one has a wonderful weekend .
