Chelsea surprised us!

Chelsea - My sister Val's daughter


So here I am after a few days, writing an entry.  It has been a few because I have been in such tremendous pain.  I have been in bed a lot.  Yes, I cheated and got on the net some (I can't stay in bed all the time!), but I have been on some bed rest too.  The muscle relaxants and my looopy pills have cut down the pain  about half.  And I start physical therapy on Tuesday.  That should be fun.  How am I going to find the time to go to therapy three times a week?

Let's see, what else is new?  John's oncologist's nurse called.  She said John's oncologist was going to send his bone marrow biopsy slide results to the Mayo Clinic so they can look at them.  They are going to look at the cyogenetics.  Whatever that means.  Wow, the Mayo Clinic.

Meanwhile, in my household, there are three birthdays this week!  Happy birthday to my sister Therese, my brother Carl, and my sister Valerie.  May this coming year be everything you want it to be plus more.  

Yesterday was my sister Valerie's birthday.  Last night Chelsea showed up.  Chelsea is Valerie's 19 year old daughter.  She just walked in and surprised her Mom!  Valerie was so excited that she cried and laughed, she said.  Chelsea will be here for a week, so I plan on seeing her.  My sister Therese is here too, so I want to spend some time with her also.  It will be so nice doing some family things.  Hopefully John will wake up and be able to join us for some activities this week.  He is asleep right now and it is 6 PM...

Well, I need to get off of here and do some things.  Hope everybody is doing well.  Love you all lots, Krissy :)

  2. What a nice surprize:) Happy Birthdays to all :) Hope you get to feeling better, and hope John can join in the fun have a great weekend


  3. Happy birthday to all your family members, Krissy. I hope you get to spend some time with Chelsea.

    Make the time for physical therapy; I know its going to be hard, but like I said before, if you don't take care of yourself and get yourself down too much, you are not going to be at a good spot to help John when he needs you when he has the transplant.

    enjoy your family time :)


  4. I really hope you feel better, Krissy!   xoxo, Nancy

  5. Lovely surprise for Val & yourself with Chelsea turning up. Hope John is okay.
