Round 2 - DONE!

Waahoo! Round 2 is done! It was way easier mentally than that first one....and my rock, Bob was with me. So far I am feeling OK just the usual fatigue.  After having tea with Lynnell this morning, we had a laugh at the fact I usually fall asleep mid-sentence in the evening...OK, maybe late evening regardless of what is going on around me.  Now I just fall asleep mid-day :)

Bob the Barber

Bob added a new job to his ever growing resume...Bob the Barber!  He so graciously helped me take my already short hair down to the wood. This was a welcomed and timely haircut.  I gained a few nicknames over this as well....."Shelley O'Patches" and "Wiggy"  All in fun! One has to keep a sense of humour!

We are traveling to Emma Lake this weekend to visit the family and are looking forward to that!  I can sleep (almost) anywhere so long as I have all my drugs and hats and such.  Hopefully the weather cooperates so the deck can get built.

Wishing you all a safe and relaxing long weekend!  Love, Shelley

    Oh Shell, you're lucky to have a man like Nurse Bob to help you through this all! Thanks for all the updates - it's way better than worrying about the unknown. Take care and enjoy the lake.

  2. Just catching up on the blogs and so much has happened. Happy 16 years to Rob!! It is crazy how these kids are growing so fast! It seems like yesterday that Allie and Turner were running around half naked in the back yard. I even have pics!! I'm not sure Rob was around then?
    It is such an education for all of us to read this blog site. Although most of us know the reactions the body has to treatment, you really make it real Shelley. Thank you for sharing.
    I'm not sure Bob will be abl e to fit all his designations behind his name on his business card-LPN, BBB, BTB, BEA ... Wait, that's the pillow!!
    It is so inspiring to see you visit at work, with friends and trail to the lake. Have a great weekend and I hope there is sunshine for you to enjoy!
    Big Love,
    K,J,T,M and Kooper
