Why the Redwood Forest slideshow?

Judy had always loved trees, and in 2008 we spent some time among the California Redwoods. Some of the ingredients in Judy's chemo cocktail were derived from trees (not Redwoods but Yews). We always knew that Judy loved the trees, and the trees got their chance to repay her affection.

Transfusion Day

After Judy's blood values still had not recovered sufficiently from her last round of chemo, the doc wanted her to have another transfusion. She went to the hospital this morning, and when I got out of school she still had the last half bag (of three) to go. Around 4:30 p.m. we were home, and now she is resting. The transfusion made her nauseated and she had to throw up a few times. Poor little thing! She looks even tinier when she is not feeling well. We don't know yet when the next chemo will happen, but we doubt that it will be next Tuesday, the day before our 20th anniversary.

Let's hope that this "outside assistance" is going to perk her up a little.

Hang tough Judy! There are so many people praying and thinking good thoughts for you. Let those carry you along and don't try to do it yourself.

Love,
Cath and John

Hi Judy!

You are always in my thoughts and prayers!!

Spring is supposedly here..but still lots of snow in our yard! Started to ride my bike to the bike shop the other day to have the studded tires taken off but after 2.5hrs (of about a 4hr trip) I was SO cold that I had to take a short cut home. Will try again tomorrow when the temps are suppose to be in the 40s!!

Hugs,
Cindi
