This has been an unusual wedding anniversary. As if having it on 9/11 isn't difficult enough. Right now I am watching the Notre Dame/Michigan game while receiving fluids in the hospital. For the first time in many days I feel like watching tv, sitting up and attending to my surroundings. I was pretty light headed earlier. I hope today is the last visit for fluids. That means lots of apple juice tomorrow.
John was in the Roundup Parade this morning with his fellow Democrats. The weather was great, not as hot as usual.

I appreciate everyone's congratulations. The end is in sight.


It must because it is our anniversary (number 34) , but Kay asked me if I wanted to add anything. I want everyone to know how much we appreciate everyone's good thoughts and prayers. It is very humbling.

Kay has had a bad week, and I am so glad that this is the last cycle of chemo. We hope to get her fattened up and stronger, and back into the community she loves .



  1. Now that Monday is here we can look forward to a better week for you, Kay. Chug-a-lug on the apple juice and it won't be long until you two can toast your anniversary and so much more with champagne. Blessing on the patient and the caregiver! :-)

  2. A good marriage is hard to describe. But, certainly, it includes being a partner and a rock of support in the hard times as well as the good times. Your anniversary is a celebration of that kind of partnership, commitment, and love. Congratulations.


  3. Use any drugs you may need and have at your disposal. Hey, what the heck. This end is in sight. "we" are hoping that your days are improving. The Geese up north are getting restless, as are the trees, trying to change colors, Cooler weather, crisp, and CLEAN air are around the bend. Heidi

  4. I hope this finds you feeling stronger and as your darling husband said, "fattening up". Although I have not called you or visited, & carried a card for you in my purse until I had to throw it away, YOU have been in my prayers all along this adventure. The blog has been a helpful connection. Thank you for doing this. :)

  5. Thinking of you, Kay, since it's been a week since we've heard from you. John, can you let us know if there is anything we can do for her?

    Thanks and hugs,
