February Already?

I cannot believe it is the 1st of February already. January simply snuck right on by. Overall, the first day of the month was a good one. My mom was here this morning helping with household chores when Dr. Hoberman called. This was the first I had heard from her since surgery. She said that the lymph nodes did NOT contain cancer cells. That was an answer to prayer. The remainder of the pathology report is not yet completed. My mom took me for a ride out to see the icebergs and ice fishermen out on Lake Mac. It was nice just to get out for a little bit. My friend Sue came for the afternoon. We spent a lot of time just visiting and then we watched a movie together. Our family enjoyed a delicious meal prepared especially for us by a friend from school. The girls are off to church, I am going to do a little reading and then, you guessed it, watch Bachelor!


  1. What!? You watch The Bachelor? How did I not know this? Have fun watching the "most shocking rose ceremony ever" tonight!


  2. Hi Robin,
    I am so glad to hear the lymph nodes did not contain cancer cells. I am also glad you relaxed and enjoyed time with your mom. Have a great night!

    Love, Krystle

  3. Yay for cancer-free lymph nodes. Enjoy your time off as much as you can given the circumstances!
