The world will change.

I am filled with pride at the Royal Wedding.  We hopefully now know that being 'Caucasian' isn't the ultimate goal in life.'  All the 'White Supremacist'  I hope will have learned something about being human.  I loved seeing the Mother of the Bride, she was glowing, and justly so as any Mom would.........................marge

Memories

I've been trying to go to sleep for several hours now, to no avail.  Then a scene from a World War 2 movie popped into my head.  The star was Dana Andrews.  He was wearing a khaki shirt and trousers.  His hands were tied behind his back.  His fists tightly closed.  For a second, he opened a fist.  In the center was a Franklin Delano Roosevelt dime.  A shot rang out.  End of movie.....................marge

He has to be stopped.

I was going to talk about my infusion today (it went well) aside from me spilling coffee AND water.  Trump is half the problem, The Republicans in Congress and his non-functioning Cabinet must share in the blame.  Are they hypnotized or something?  Truly truly, how can they be so stupid?  Is he the Pied Piper?  Or leading the Lemmings going off of the cliff?  There is no humor at all in this.  Illuminating these people to the facts appears to be an impossible task.  How did they ever get elected in the first place?  We can't wait until the next election or we may well be doomed.  He's trying his best to do that.  Don't you think our good people deserve better?........................marge

Third Infusion week!

I am brandishing a huge purple area on my arm.  Poor nurses.  It took three tries to get the I.V. going.  I'm glad they didn't run out of veins.  I told the man in the chair next to mine he looked like Burgess Meredith.  Remember the penguin in the 'Bat Man' series?  He took it kindly but it mostly went over the heads of those nearby.  Went to Kroger after.  Ron works there.  He stopped my electric cart and called for the manager to get a tow truck.  I do have a tendency to knock down displays in the store.  Fortunately none of them were liquid.  I think Spring has sprung in Michigan today.  Onward and upward...................marge.........P.S.  Hello to the 'mail' Angels.

A simple run to the grocery store? No.

Do to a little off balance as I start my 2nd. infusion tomorrow, I ended up making three trips instead of one.  First, I get to Kroger and yes, all my wallets and money are still at home.  I try again.  This time seemingly successful.  Get what I want, and head for home.  In my haste and inattention,  I had to hit the breaks.  Did it safely but now had a large tub of juicy coleslaw spilled on the passenger side floor.  Went back to Kroger.  Got another coleslaw.  Instead of being on sale, I'd be paying top dollar!  But no.  When the checkout gentleman heard my story, he asked another employee if I had to pay.  I didn't!  My error and I was forgiven.  Thank you Kroger employees!......................marge

The fun starts Tuesday!

4-24-18.  Had round two of six total treatments.  Went well but long sitting for several hours.  I was  able to walk around.  So far no side effects!   Onward and upward!........................marge

Bone Marrow Biopsy.

Yes.  Had one today.  Hurt?  yes.  Survivable without anesthesia?  Yes.  It's the only way to become a martyr though. Ta Da!  (Hi Courtnie).  The reasons for one.  Dr. needs some answers to stuff that shows up on assorted scans and biopsy's, with no discernable diagnosis'.  And now we wait.  Got to go shopping and got some deals today though!  Just gotta hang in there.  AND DRINK COFFEE!....................marge
